Crude drawings include a falconer with birds, f. 103v, and a ghost (?), f. 103r.
Script: Part I (ff. 1r-78v): Written by a single scribe in a bold upright notarial script. Part II (ff. 91r-110v): Written in a clear notarial script by a single scribe; later writers have added the initials, offset in margins, for the major sections of text (sometimes inaccurately) and the notes on ff. 109v-110v.
The pattern of stains suggests the two parts were originally bound separately. Stained throughout; some ink blotches affect text.
