Manuscript on paper of Nicolas Trevet, Commentarius in tragoedias Senecae.
Binding: Date? The backs of the quires are cut in, some in a W shape. Resewn on two tawed skin, slit straps. Endband sewn on a tawed skin core laid in grooves on the outside of the boards and nailed. The back oak board was previously covered with leather; front board is of unidentified wood. This seems to be a patched together binding using boards from different, possibly 15th-century, books. Presently quarter bound with brown sheepskin, blind-tooled, with radiant IHS in circles. Spine: supports defined with triple (?) fillets; an X with a central cross bar in the panels. Two fastenings, with the catches on the lower board. The upper board cut in for straps fastened with star-headed nails. Remains of title, in ink, on tail edge.
Many leaves stained and crumbling along edges; no loss of text.
Red and/or deep aquamarine blue initials, 10- to 5-line, with penwork flourished in same color(s), mark beginning of each play. On f. 1r head of bearded man peeps out from behind foliage in interior of letter; on other initials penwork designs extend into margins to form borders (e. g., 170r). Plain initials, 5- to 2-line, paragraph marks, headings, in red.
Script: Written in semi-gothic cursive script by a single scribe, above top line; headings in gothic bookhand.
Watermarks: similar to Briquet Tete de boeuf 14330, 14338, Piccard Ochsenkopf I.701, Briquet Main 11092.
