A treatise of Antichrist, the Judgement, Heaven, and Hell, divided into chapters, written in the 15th cent. in France
'Cy commence le desrain liure de la Vigne nostre Seigneur', a treatise of Antichrist, the Judgement, Heaven, and Hell, divided into chapters: beg. 'Voca operarios ... Comme le soir feust venu.' There are many corrections on erasures. The binding is leather on boards with plain panelling and cross-hatching and brass bosses, re-backed: an early owner added his name 'dominus iohanes blache' or Blathe with flower-work, done by simple hand drawing with some tool.
