Script: Copied by two scribes: artt. 1-3 copied by a scribe called Stephanus in Humanistica
Semitextualis Libraria; according to Barbero this scribe is perhaps identifiable with
Stefano Guarnieri; art. 4 is by a scribe writing a script halfway between Humanistica
Textualis Libraria and Cursiva Libraria. The opening majuscules of paragraphs protrude
into the margin.
Red stroking of majuscules on pp. 1-11, 22-31, 44-51, 64-73, 88-93 only.There is ample
space for headings and initials (with guide letters), but they have not been executed,
except headings in Gothica Textualis on pp. 46, 49, 51, 66, 71, 92; plain red Gothic
initials (4 lines) on pp. 46 , 49, 51, 66, 71, 92; a few initials have been entered
at a later date.
Binding: Parchment wrappers with turned edges.
