Marginally later manuscript title at the head of the spine. Yellow-edged leaves. On the upper cover, quadruple fillets form a double frame. Within the outer frame, diagonal quadruple fillets form a lozenge-shaped area. Diagonal quadruple fillets also divide the inner rectangle into four triangular compartments. A few stamps randomly distributed: a foliate staff, a rosette, a square lion, a square six-petalled flower, a small lozenge-shaped fleur-de-lis, two more different small flower stamps. On the lower cover, quadruple fillets form a frame. The area is subsequently divided by other fillets into six triangular sections, some of which contain some of the stamps found on the upper cover.
