  1. (fol. 1) '... Lo libro decto Quagriga [corrected to Quadriga] spirituale': some leaves are lost, the text ending 'le predicte cose necessarie', followed by two erased lines, to conceal the defect. This theological manual is attributed to Nicolaüs de Auximo (Osimo, Ausmo).
  2. (fol. 138) '... Tractatus de viitem uitijs capitalibus editus per reuerendum patrem fratrem Antonium de Florentiam ordinis Predicatorum', in Italian: beg. 'Omnis mortalium cura ... Dice sancto Seuerino': some leaves are lost at the end: the text ends 'moltitudine innumerabilj'--catchwords 'di Christianj.' This work is often called the Confessionale of Antoninus archbp. of Florence.
