'... Officium diue & immaculate Virginis Marie: secundum vsum & consuetudinem Romane Curie', preceded by a Calendar (fol. 1), and Capitula from the Gospels (fol. 7), and followed by:
  1. The Penitential Psalms with Litany (fol. 58)
  2. The 'Vigilie Mortuorum' (fol. 71)
  3. Suffrages (fol. 98), and small pieces, some with French rubrics
The Hours of the Cross and of the Holy Spirit are worked in, at fols. 32, 33v, etc. The Calendar is Roman, but the Litany points unmistakeably to Anjou or N. W. France (Stt. Cerenicus, Licinius, Magnobodus, Avia, etc.). There are 14 large miniatures, finely executed, and some smaller ones, with borders, etc.: each plain page has a rope-work ornament round the text.

Some later (16th cent.) additions on fols. 112-4 end with 'Quod faueas sibi Dandula te Nicolosa precatur | Aeterni mater uirgo Maria Dei.'.
