Copy number: M-183(1)

Removed from the binding of H‑058 (Johannes Herolt, Liber Discipuli de eruditione Christifidelium. [Reutlingen: Michel Greyff, c.1479-81], Auct. Q sup. 1.25); see there for details of provenance and acquisition. Now bound in a modern guard-book of fragments.

A fragment consisting of four leaves, apparently [y1.8] and [y2.7]. The text corresponds to that of the outer sheet of gathering [y] of Greyff's undated edition M‑182 (see above), but is differently set. By an error of imposition the text of [y2v] and [y7r] has changed places with that of [y1v] and [y8r]. Leaf [y1r]: ‘ſchlechtickait . . . | . . . zwuſchē ruchickait . . . | . . . | . . . Rect9. ein ſchlechter ī aīo. vnū ſolū deſiď | rat. non ē duplex aīo . . .’

Size of leaf: 184 × 129 mm.

Across the gutter of [y2.7] is a fifteenth/sixteenth-century ownership inscription from Tegernsee, with intertwined vine-stems in red and black; for the dated ownership inscription on [y8v] see H‑058.

Former Bodleian shelfmark: Auct. Q sup. 1.25 (see above).

SHELFMARK: Inc. b. G97.1(13).
