Page layout

c. 295 x c. 400, one column c. 215 x c. 300; 10 lines of text alternated with music; from folio 291w on, 9 lines of text alternated with music.


302 folios; fol. 1 is missing. Roman foliation until fol. 305, the foliation skips numbers 223, 231, 255 and 279; while fols. 271-278 are unnumbered. A new hand wrote the foliation in Roman numbers from fols. 289 to 291; "289" is repeated on the following folio. "291" is written on two consecutive folios, the second occurrence was written in Roman numbers by a new hand.
There is a problem of page misplacement at the end of the manuscript: fols. 303 and 304 can be found in the place of 298 and 299, and vice-versa.
Fols. 174, 198, 247, 286 and 288 are a replacement of the original ones; from the numbering repeated folio 291 up to the end, all folios are a later addition.


Leather over boards.
