    request
'...Officium beate Marie Virginis secundum consuetudinem Romane Curie', preceded by a calendar (fol. 1), and followed by:
  1. 'Missa Sancte Marie Virginis' (fol. 96v)
  2. Penitential Psalms with litany (fol. 101)
  3. 'Officium Mortuorum' (fol. 130)
  4. 'Officium sancte Crucis' (fol. 189)
In the litany there is a prayer for' papa noster I.' which seems to be Innocent viii (1484-92: fol. 126v). In the calendar Zenobius of Florence is in red on May 25, and John Gualbert, founder of the Vallombrosans, born at Florence, twice in red, on July 12 and Oct. 10.

On fols. 13bv and 14b are fine miniatures of stt. Francis and Jerome: on fol. 15av the arms of the Strozzi of Florence, and on fol. 16 the arms, party per fess azure and gules, in chief a fox gules.
