Physical Description

Form: codex
Extent: Folios 478
Dimensions (leaf): 9.5 × 5.5 in.


15 lines on a page




Red leather Oriental binding, with stamped cartouches, blind-tooling and painted decoration. Although in format and page layout the MS differs from No 100 the bindings are similar in fabric and the stamp used for the central cartouche is in fact the same. Evidently the two volumes were together when the binding took place.


Provenance and Acquisition

Provenance unknown. Both Morley's catalogues are silent on this.
