Wanting [g7-8], in place of which there have been inserted two leaves which formerly served to line the covers of the volume. These leaves, constituting sheet [g2], contain the text differently set up; they were cancelled owing to an error of imposition, the text of g2v (misnumbered xliiv) and g7r having changed places. As now bound, the first leaf contains the text of g2v on the recto, g7v on the verso; the second, g2r on the recto, g7r on the verso.

Some marginal notes, mainly extracting key words, in the same early hands found in J‑077. Early manuscript signature in the lower right-hand corner of the rectos.

On [b1r] a four-line initial is supplied in red with brown pen-work decoration. Other initials and underlining of chapter headings are supplied in red. On [n4v] is a male face in brown ink in the area defined by the initial ‘U'.
