Paragraph marks alternating red and blue. Omitted passages added in the margins, enclosed in red ink frames. Marginal notes in later hands. Bound, s. XIX (?), in dark red velvet; marbled endpapers. Written in Spain, possibly in Toledo or Seville since past bishops are listed only for these 2 cities (art. 5). Letter dated Rouen 1562 (?), in poor French in the lower margin of f. 116, “A mon seieur Le Legat cardinal de ferralle Le Legat de franse. Je vous me recommende.…” De Ricci states, presumably on the binding, that the book is from a nineteenth century French collection. Acquired by Henry E. Huntington from Herschel V. Jones (1861-1928) of Minneapolis in February 1918.
