Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern label, with ‘Calix. iii. Officior. Liber i. Anno i. ii. iii.’ Inside it is the usual front half of the original sheepskin binding, with the contemporary description ‘Liber primus officiorum, inceptus in primordiis assumptionis sanctissimi in Christo patris et domini nostri domini Calisti divina providentia pape tertii,’ below which is, also contemporary, ‘Liber primus officiorum sanctissimi et excellentissimi in Christo patris domini Calisti pape iii.’ After a flyleaf with the usual modern description by Bissaiga ‘Calixti iii. Officiorum Liber Primus Anno i. ii. iii.,’ comes, instead of the usual contemporary ‘Rubricelle,’ a set of 52 pages written apparently by de Pretis about 1730, with a heading imitating the contemporary style, viz. ‘Rubricelle primi libri Officiorum sanctissimi in Christo patris et domini nostri domini Calisti divina providentia papœ iii, inceptœ in primordiis dicti domini Calisti anno primo.’ There are ff. i. to cccxvi. of text. In this volume are registered the actual bulls of appointment, unlike Reg. Vat. CCCCLXVII. below, which contains only a brief record of the appointments, with the date of the appointment and of the taking of the oath.
