  2. Fol. 54. 'Excepciones Canonum, Decretalium & Legum per se diuisim secundum Sumam fratris Reymundi in titulis suis', imperfect at end.
  3. Fol. 131v. 'Incipiunt Brocarda [this word erased] Damasi Vngari', correcta per Bartolomeum Brixiensem.
  4. Fol. 140. Varia juridica, for which see corrigenda.
  5. On fols. 207v-9r is added in a 16th cent. hand 'Here suen foure full notable Prologis upon the Sauter [Psalter]', but only one (that of the Wycliffite translation) follows, beginning 'Whane it is known all the prophetes to haue spoken'.
