vellum



2 folios serving as fly-leaves (front = A and back = B); both trimmed fol. A 165 x 130 mm., fol. B 165 x 143 mm
Part of the left-hand side of each sheet has been folded and pasted on to the cover, the remainder of the sheet having been trimmed to the size of the printed page. The effect, when one comes to read the verso side, is that one is deprived of a vertical strip of the text in the second column. More text has been lost with the trimming of the upper and lower edges.

Fly-leaf B is bound upside down; its text should be read before that of A.
two cols, each has lost several lines through trimming; the cols on A now have 32 lines and on B 27 lines French littera gothica textualis

three folios, one of which is pasted inside front cover, one is fly-leaf D and the third is pasted inside back cover. D and the pastedown on the inside back cover appear to be the remains of a bi-folio. As these sheets have been trimmed on all sides it is impossible to determine the original size. There were originally two cols to a side (ruling dry-point), each col. on each side has lost a lot of text through trimming, both horizontally and vertically. There are worm holes in each sheet, and rust stains on all colunms. The ink has now faded to a light brown.
