  1. Fol. 1, 3v, 10, 21. Tables and short treatises connected with the Ecclesiastical Calendar, in Latin, chiefly written in the 11th century. The calculation on fol. 8v was composed in A.D. 863. fols. 10r-17v were written apparently in A.D. 993.
  2. Fol. 3r, 9v. On two blank pages of the above treatises are written in two hands of the 12th century some Latin hymns, with musical notes.
  3. Fol. 18. Medicinal recipes, in a hand of about A.D. 900: with additions in a somewhat later writing. On fol. 21v-22r are forms of manumission and betrothal, written early in the 10th century, with traces of a Merovingian (?) hand.
  4. Fol. 25. A fly-leaf from an 11th century Latin Lectionary, containing Acts xx. 7 (Paulus disputabat)--12 end, xxviii. 1--end?, in part almost illegible.
