The epistles of st. Paul with glosses, some of which are as in the glossa interlinearis and glossa ordinaria, the prologue of st. Jerome, beg. 'Primum queritur', and a second prologue, beg. 'Romani sunt' (fol. 1). The initial 'P' of the text is a good example of pen and ink work (fol. 4). Dr. Barlow's note of the contents is now on the inner front cover.
