Condition of document

Many folios exhibit destruction by insects (40 ff) and others were restored with the application of glued patches (31, 84). Some small cracks were sewn (85). In some folios further indications appear in the margins (49, 74). This book is the continuation of another antiphonal that does not survive in the music collection of this museum. It lack at least a final folio, 148, of which it still retains the inner upper corner, containing most of the text of the Magnificat antiphon for St. Clement.
