Notes from:

  1. Fol. 1. Nigel Wireker's 'Burnelli speculum stultorum', with variants from MSS. described as A, B, and C, and so perhaps from the Cologne edition of 1499: for MSS. of this poem see J. H. Mozley in Speculum, vol. iv (1929), p. 430, and vol. v (1930), p. 251
  2. Fol. 73v. the satirical poem entitled Serlo: beg. 'Quae monachi quaerunt', and an anonymous poem on Rome the Simoniac, followed at fol. 76 by excerpts from MS. Bodl. l58
  3. Fol. 82v. 'Quaedam prosa de fratribus' from 'MS. Th. 2. 12' at Bodley in verses of 4 lines: beg. 'Rector circuli rotundi respice de coelo'. This is a 1605 press-mark but the MS. has not been identified.
