Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the modern Latin description: 1440 (corrected from '1445'). An. x. (corrected from xv.) Eugenii IV.' A flyleaf has the contemporary description 'Primus de prebendis vacantibus et dignitatibus vacantibus Anno x Eugenii pape iiii' (the same contemporary description occurs also, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume), and ' per Marsille rubricatus,' the name 'Marsille' being evidently written by the person who allotted to him the task of rubrication, and the words ' per' and 'rubricatus' being added, in a different hand, doubtless that of Marsille himself when he had finished his task. Another flyleaf has the usual modern 'Liber cxxxii, fol. 316.'
