The table here is bound at the end; in the lower right-hand corner of [*1r] there is an ‘I' in red ink and ‘xxxiii' in brown ink; to judge from other similar marks still visible in other gatherings, red arabic numerals indicate the number of leaves within a gathering, brown roman numerals the number of the gathering. The marks on [*] would therefore suggest that the table was thought to be at the end.
Binding: Contemporary blind-tooled calf over wooden boards laid over nineteenth-century restoration leather. Corner-pieces, centre-piece, and clasps and catches lost. Yellow-edged leaves. The spine has been successively painted grey with a manuscript title at the head, in black ink. Double fillets form a double frame. Within the outer frame a repeated circular rosette stamp and small trefoil stamps. The inner rectangle is completely covered by a repeated small lozenge-shaped stamp of a spread eagle. In the centre a large lozenge frame is formed by a broad border decorated with the small trefoil stamps. Strips from manuscripts visible in the binding.

On [a1r] a large initial ‘P' is supplied in blue with red pen-work decoration with extensions along the margin. Other initials and paragraph marks are supplied in red or blue. Running chapter headings in red. Indications in brown ink for the rubricator also visible.
Provenance: Fürstenfeld, Bavaria, Cistercians, BVM and S. Bernardus; inscription on [a1r]: ‘Monasterii Fürstenueld'. Duplicate from the Royal Library, Munich; ‘Dupl' in pencil on the same leaf. Acquired between 1847 and c.1892, probably in 1850; not in Catalogus (1843) with Appendix.
