Note Descr. de Kraus cat. 107:

“220 leaves (of 228; four leaves of text lacking, four others being present in duplicate; and four blank leaves not present; i.e., 224 leaves present including the duplicate leaves). With decorative woodcut initials. Rubricated. 4to (201 × 142 mm.). Old vellum of the 16th/17th century. With contemporary marginalia. (Worm holes at the beginning and end of the book, affecting the printing.)’’

“In addition, the present copy has been extensively rubricated by hand, with paragraph marks and decorative marginal flourishes on many pages. On the 15th leaf (a bis5 verso) an addition to the text has been made in contemporary handwriting, which supplements a list of devotional requirements by prescribing attendance at Mass on Christmas Eve and Day, ‘and not in jest’ (transl.) – a reference to the frolics called the ‘Feast of Fools’ or ‘Feast of Asses’which then were current at that season. Other marginalia, in neat contemporary writing, give the Biblical references for text quotations.’’
