Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Calisto iii. 1455. Anno 1, Lib. 1.’ The flyleaf has been almost entirely torn out, the surviving fragment preserving the following words of the usual contemporary description: ‘Primustabellion[atus] … et plenaria …,’ and also the word ‘Vis(a).’ Ff. i. and ii. are also almost wholly torn out, so that the volume contains ff. iii.–cccviii. of text. On the bottom edge of the volume is the usual contemporary description which, also, as usual, is hardly legible: ‘Primus de exhibitis, de provisionibus [prelatorum], de regularibus, de litteris dominorum cardinalium, de tabellionatus officio, de conservatoriis anno primo secundo et tertio, et de plenaria [remissione] anno primo domini nostri domini Calisti pape tertii.’
2 i.e. two executors only.
3 The second ‘r’ can hardly be read otherwise than an ‘r,’ but it no doubt represents some other letter (perhaps an ‘e’) in an earlier stage of the passage of the document through the hands of the scribes of the chancery.
4 The qunternion, which begins with f. 278, is headed ‘de remissionibus plenariis,’ a variant of the usual ‘de plenaria remissione,’ which, however, only describes part of the contents.
5 domino loci de Justortford,’ rectius ‘loci in Stortford.’
6 Not clearly written.
7 i.e., as noted above, the heading at the beginning of the quaternion.
8 The text has ‘Johanni,’ which is cancelled and over-written ‘P[etru]s’ [de Varris], the name ‘Thome’ being substituted in the margin, with the explanatory note: ‘Cassatum et correctum de mandato domini Jo. Zamorensis regentis Cancellariam, P. de Varris.’
9 Datum Rome apud sanctum Petrum anno incarnationis dominice millesimo quadringentesimo quinquagesimo quinto sexto, decimooctavo Kal. Maii anno primo. The word ‘quinto’ is cancelled and over-written C[onradu]s [de Montepolitiano.]
10 From ‘dilecte in Christo filie nobili mulieri impresentiarum eius uxori’ the words ‘nobili mulieri’ are cancelled, and over-written twice: A[ntonius episcopus Concordien.].
