Part I and part II up to gathering [rr] only.
Wanting the blank leaf [aa1].
Number of leaves as Polain, with [aa1] blank.
Binding: Contemporary German blind-tooled leather over wooden boards. Both covers are damaged, and the stamps, where visible at all, are very worn. On both covers fillets form an outer frame within which is a repeated lozenge-shaped dragon stamp, a rosette stamp, and a small flower-petal stamp. Triple fillets form the inner rectangle which is divided by further triple fillets into triangular and lozenge-shaped compartments decorated with the dragon and rosette stamps. The spine is decorated with the dragon stamp, the flower-petal stamp, and a foliate stamp(?). Early manuscript labels at the head of the upper cover, giving the title and the shelfmark ‘E 3'(?). Paper labels on the spine, one bearing a shelfmark ‘G c [ ] 8', another the Munich shelfmark ‘743'. Rebacked.
Size: 417 × 291 × 106 mm.
Size of leaf: 401 × 274 mm.
German initials, some with extensions into the margins, are supplied in interlocked red and blue with red pen-work decoration within the bodies of the letters in the form of palm leaves, touched with green wash; paragraph marks are supplied in red or blue; underlining and some capital strokes in red. These initials were perhaps added by an artist from the printers' workshop (see below).
Provenance: Freising, Cathedral Chapter; engraved book-plate (59 × 41 mm), the Virgin and Child on a crescent moon, lettered below: ‘Insignia Capituli'; see Warnecke 559. Duplicate from the Royal Library, Munich; ‘Duplum' on the inside of the upper cover, and shelfmark ‘Inc. Typ. No. 743'. Probably acquired between 1847 and 1892.
SHELFMARK: Auct. 5Q inf. 1.1.
Copy number: M-320(2)

Binding: Nineteenth-century blind-tooled calf; bound for the Bodleian Library.
Size: 418 × 300 × 91 mm.
Size of leaf: 401 × 274 mm.
Attached to the front pastedown is a slip of paper containing notes (references to legal works?) in a fifteenth/sixteenth-century hand.
Initials, some with extensions into the margins, are supplied in interlocked red and blue, or in red, or in interlocked red and green, with red pen-work decoration within the bodies of the letters, usually in the form of palm leaves, touched with green wash, although the initials ‘O' ([HH1r]) and ‘Y' ([HHH7v]) each contain, within the body of the letter, a human face; paragraph marks are supplied in red or blue; underlining and some capital strokes in red. These initials seem to be the work of the same artist who was responsible for those in copy 1 (see above).
Provenance: Duplicate from the Royal Library, Munich(?); pencil number ‘2449' on [HHH8v]. Probably acquired between 1847 and 1892.
SHELFMARK: Auct. 5Q 2.5.
