Notes: 

Ms. written in Venice, Italy, and dated June 1, 1534.
Fol. 1 is lacking; it evidently had a decorated frontispiece and a coat of arms, for such are visible in the lift-off on the verso of the front flyleaf.
The sections on paper are not bound in with the vellum leaves, but are two separate additions, of different dimensions: fol. 61-66 (3 nested bifolia, 215 x 150 mm.); fol. 67-72 (2 nested bifolia and 1 separate bifolium, 230 x 165 mm.).
The sections on paper contain alphabetical indices to the rubrics of specific texts; the first index does not correspond with the rubrics of this manuscript, but the second index does, indicating the pages each rubric falls on, although the manuscript is foliated; there are watermarks on the paper.
