Binding: Nineteenth century. Reddish leather over cardboard; the covers blind-tooled with a double decorative frame, the inner one chequered, with circular dots on the intersections; small quadrangular decorative bosses in gilt (?) brass in the four corners and in the center of each cover. Spine with four raised bands. Two brass clasps attached to the rear cover, with catches on the front cover.
Headings in red. 2-line (on f. 18v 3-line) initials were provided but were not executed; guide letters in the inner and outer margins. In art. 1, square spaces or roundels traced in ink have been provided in the text for illustrations, but the latter have only exceptionally been executed. No illustrations were provided in chapters 28-30 and 36-37. On f. 1v the text of chapters 31-35 is arranged in such a way, that a roundel containing a fully coloured female saint is placed in the center, and in the right-hand column a large space has been provided for a picture of the Cedar, the text being written around its stem. On f. 2r there is a drawing in crayon of a Pelican (very light, ch. 38), on f. 2v an ink drawing of a Raven (ch. 40), on f. 6r a crayon sketch of a Stork (ch. 47). In art. 2, similar spaces and roundels as in art. 1 were provided or traced within the text, all of them empty, except on f. 11v where there are crayon sketches of the Caladrius and the Pelican.
Parchment soiled and in bad condition. Holes and irregular and damaged lower edges, the latter often repaired by means of strips of parchment; the final pages badly damaged, with loss of text.
Script: Copied by two hands writing a small Gothica Textualis Libraria, both having a tendency towards lengthening and making loops to the ascenders at the top line; A copied ff. 1r-7v and 17r-19v and is marked by conspicuous vertical decorative strokes at the top of r and long strokes on i; B copied ff. 8r-16v. Running headlines in red in artt. 3-5 in Gothica Textualis Libraria. In the margins of artt. 1 and 3-5 a contemporary hand has written numerous corrections and variant readings and has rewritten numerous words for which hand A apparently had used unusual or unclear abbreviations.
