Other Info

There is no old mark of ownership nor modern book-plate. The last leaf is supplied in a hand of cent. XV. The miniatures are in a good style, with soft stippled work : some of them have been rather coarsely retouched. They should be compared both for their original character and for that of the retouching with the pictures in the Carew-Poyntz Horae.
