- Manuscript on parchment (goatskin) of 1) Masses for the main feasts of the Temporale from Christmas to Epiphany. 2) Full text (Ordinary and Sanctorale) of the mass for Candlemas. The rubrics prove that the manuscript is for the use of a bishop (Postea pontifex sollemniter cantet; Deinde pontifex dicat; Postea pontifex dicat hanc orationem, etc.). The space for music staves in Gloria (1 line), Preface, Lord's Prayer and Peace has remained blank.
Binding ca. 1700: limp parchment, with marks of two pairs of ties. The endleaves, added by the dealer Laurence Witten, are two leaves placed transversally and taken from two different antiphonaries. (see full record for description)
