'Priorista Fiorentino' (so lettered on back), a list of the successive heads of the families of Florence who have held public offices, with the dates of their deaths, places of burial, and arms. The extreme dates are 1282 and 1532, the number of families 1723, but only 115 have the arms coloured, and seven have them blazoned. The order is chronological, the oldest families coming first, but the alphabetical index begun on p. 1359 only deals with the letter A: but see MS. Bodl. 1024. The Capponi family occur on p. 137.
