Decoration: M.884.1: 2 historiated initials, marginal vinescroll; M.884.2: 1 historiated initial, 1 illuminated foliate initial, 1 bas-de-page historiated vignette occupying the full page width illustrating a procession of the clergy, wearing the white robes of the Augustinian Order, followed by townsfolk, approaching the cathedral of St. Pölten, historiated marginal vinescroll. (The realistic treatment of the church architecture made it possible for Otto Demus and Franz Unterkircher to identify it as the cathedral of St. Pölten in its original configuration.)
