Binding: Bookblock laid in a contemporary vellum wrapper with an envelope flap.
Gift of the Yale Library Associates in 1931.
Script: Written in round gothic by one scribe who added decorative designs in upper and lower margins. Addition on ff. 52v-53v by Don Antonio Larrillo is in a similar hand.
The ornamentation of the codex is poorly executed. Folio 1v: miniatures representing the crowning of the Virgin (upper left) and the arms of the Goncalez de Valdes family; f. 2r: miniature of Justice, with scales (lower half of page). Both folios have elaborate decorative borders in gold and colors that are badly rubbed. Folios 4v and 52r have historiated initials with portraits of a seated king (Rey Don Iohan?). Twenty-five small painted initials, 7- to 5-line; gold letters with black pen designs on white-decorated blue and dark red backgrounds.
