  • How to
    request
A leaf is lost after fols. 1, 145, some pages are damaged, and a capital is cut out of fol. 152. Of a rubric on fol. 1 much is now illegible: the latter part is 'inchoamus principio meliori exitu consum[m]emus + + + per Dominum nostrum Hiesum Xpistum.' The names of Dominicus and Restituta in the calendar may be thought to connect the book with Sora near Naples. A facsimile of the writing is in the 1840 catalogue, and in J. O. Westwood's Palæographia Sacra Pictoria (1843-5).
