  • How to
'...Psalterium secundum ordinem Fratrum Predicatorum', with Canticles, etc., Litany (fol. 108v), Hymnal (fol. 112), and Calendar (fol. 157). The occurrence of Stt. Faustinus and Jovita in the Calendar (Feb. 15, in red) and Litany, and the 'Dedicatio ecclesie sancte Katherine' on Oct. 20, show that the book was for use in Brescia. There are musical notes, and at fol. 163 examples of the eight Toni.

Arms on fol. 1:--party per fess, in chief argent two leopards' paws or, in base gules a dove argent bearing an olive branch proper.
