On [a8v –a9v] are notes written in Italian in a fifteenth-century humanist hand. Occasional early marginal annotations, including comments on the text, also some underlining in the text in red ink. Irregular manuscript foliation: 3-100, the rest missing, presumably cropped.

Leaf [C8] repaired. The entries in Fysher, Catalogus, suggest that this copy and copy 3 were, in the 1730s, bound up together as one item (D 7.19 Art). The present arrangement was clearly introduced when Kalthoeber rebound copy 1, and it was presumably then decided to have copy 2 rebound in the same style and with a binding of the same size, and, at the same time, to remove the miscellaneous fragments (now copy 3), thereby ‘creating' a complete copy of this edition of Ovidius, Opera, the two volumes of which were then given new contiguous shelfmarks as Auct. L 2.19 and L 2.20; the fragments were then bound separately as copy 3. Misbound in the following order: ‘[ . . . z9, B2-7, z10, A1-10, B1.8, C1-8]'.
