A Collectare, stated by Frere (Bibl. Mus.-Lit., p. 32) to be Augustinian, containing:

  1. A Psalter (fol. 5: wanting a leaf or two after fol. 145)
  2. Office for the Dead with Litany (fol. 155)
  3. Hymnal (fol. 167)
  4. Collects, etc. (fol. 195, wanting leaves after fol. 378)

Among the names in the Litany are Stanislaus, Wenceslaus, Florian and Ludmilla ('Bohemorum patrona' fol. 330v): so the volume is probably connected with Bohemia. The date is fixed to within a few years by calendarial notes, fols. 379-81, cf. 1: a German rubric is at fol. 381v ('Die tauell czayget wie uil man scoll abcziehen vber m cccc xxxv iar nach Christi gepurd, etc.').
