Script: Copied by one hand in Southern Gothica Semitextualis Libraria. The first word
of a Book, after the (planned) initial, is written in Gothic majuscules.
There are guide letters and space has been reserved for 2-line initials (3-line at
the beginning of a Book), but only a few of these have been executed (plain initials
with the simplest penwork decoration in ... , by a later hand); the large fancy black
initial at the beginning of the Prologue is equally a later addition made by an unexperienced
hand. There are neither headings nor other decoration.
Binding: The binding is lost. The quires are sewn on four double white leather thongs.
