'...Breuiarium secundum ritum ac formam Romane Curie' (fol. 86), consisting of:

  1. A Calendar (fol. 1)
  2. Psalter (fol. 7)
  3. Proprium de Tempore (fol. 86)
  4. Proprium ('Festiuitates') Sanctorum (fol. 262)
  5. 'Commune Sanctorum' (fol. 421)
  6. '... Summa omnium rubricarum breuiarij' (fol. 453) and some Augustinian additions

The Calendar is Augustinian, while the occurrence of Gulielmus (de Mala Valle) in red on Feb. 10, and of the translation of St. Zeno in red on May 21 and in the Litany, suggest a Wilhelmine house in or near Verona after it had become Augustinian.
