'...Officium beate Virginis Marie secundum ordinem Curie Romane', preceded by a Calendar (fol. 3), and followed by:

  1. The 'Officium Mortuorum' (fol. 94)
  2. 'Septem Psalmi penitentiales' with Litany (fol. 142)
  3. 'Officium magnum Crucis' (fol. 166)
  4. 'Officium paruum sancte Crucis' (fol. 189)

Stt. Maurelius (May 7) of Imola and Domninus ('Doninus', Oct. 9) of Parma (?) are in the Calendar. At fol. 1v is a 'Copia d'Oratione Francese, & tradotta in lingua Italiana trouata nel padiglione di Carlo viii Re di Francia in tempo della Battaglia seguita al Taro l'anno 1495 ...' A leaf is lost after fol. 165.

On fol. 14 are some arms very like those of the Strozzi family of Ferrara, for whom the volume was in that case written.
