In the calendar on Apr. 22 is 'Dedicatio ecclesie nostre. Candele', which may indicate Milan (cf. MS. Canon. Liturg. 271, which is also a Carthusian book): on Dec. 7 is 'Ordinatio beati Ambrosii episcopi. Sollenne' in red: on July 24 is st. Christiana (Christina) of Tyro in Tuscany. Some of the trentals are peculiar (Mar. 2, Tricenarium regine Johanne: Apr. 26, Tric, episcopi Mauri: Sept. 3, Tric, domini fundatoris).
