In place of sheet a3.6 there are two sheets signed a3 and a4 containing parts of the alphabetical table belonging to one of the editions of the Sermones thesauri novi de tempore printed by Flach with the same types as the present work.

Binding: Contemporary German blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards; two clasps and catches lost. Formerly chained: a metal hook is stapled at the head of the lower cover. On both covers triple fillets form the border. Intersecting triple fillets form the inner rectangle which is divided by further triple fillets into lozenge-shaped and triangular compartments. The compartments are decorated with a very worn circular rosette stamp or curved-outline tools making up merrythoughts, each of which contains a lozenge-shaped fleuron, all very worn. Manuscript title at the head of the upper cover in black ink in a fifteenth/sixteenth-century hand; also at the head of the spine in a seventeenth-century(?) hand. Paper label at the head of the spine bearing the number ‘19[ ]'.

The rear pastedown is a parchment leaf from a lectionary of the second half of the tenth century; wanting the front pastedown (presumably from the same manuscript), the impression of which is visible on the inside of the upper cover.
