P-Cug (Coimbra) Biblioteca Geral da Universidade MM 007
3 paper types; 2 watermarks. Mark on paper 3 almost identical to Briquet #5264 (cf Rees 1995: 164, 370 & 387).
Voice parts named on fols. 1v, 2v, 32v, 33v. 'Duo' fol. 17v.
Upper edges of folios trimmed. Modern pencil foliation probably added at re-binding of manuscript for fols 1-3, 5, 7-19, 19A, 20-26, 27B (pasted-in slip), 27A, 29-32, 32-38, 40-49. Some folios bound out of sequence. Manuscript consists of two distinct sections: fols. 1-35 and fols. 36-49 (possibly belonging to originally different manuscripts). First section is the work of 12 scribes, with later additions. The copying process shows collaboration between the different scribes. A few scribal links with MM 6, 9, 12 and 32 can be seen (cf Rees 1995: 164-66).
