Other Info

[See cat. for additional notes, description, and bibliography.] i+123+i. Foliated in modern pencil i, 1-124. Quires mostly in 10. 234-6 x 137-9 mm. Prickings usually visible in the fore-edge margin of quires I-II. Humanist script attributed to the Florentine notary set Giovanni di Piero da Stia (cf. de la Mare New Research I, 425-6, 499-500). Mersalo suggests this MS comes from the workshop of Vespasiano da Bisticci, but de la Mare does not include it in her list of Vespasiano manuscripts. Preface has a four-line white vine-stem initial M[ulta] with foliate ornament extending up and down the inner margin (2r); Books I-IV each with a three- to five-line initial in gold on a green and/or red ground framed in blue (4v, 32v, 66v, 96r) [see cat. pl. 14].
