  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern Italian description: ‘Calisto III. 1457, Anno 3. Lib. 2.’ The contemporary flyleaf, which had the usual description, has disappeared, but on the bottom edge is the hardly legible contemporary description: ‘Secundus de beneficiis et de prebendis vacantibus anno tertio domini nostri domini Calisti pape iii.’ and f. I. is headed ‘de beneficiis vancantibus [sic] anno tertio.’ There are ff. i–cccxxii. of text.
  • 2. The ground on which the pope's mandate is based does not appear.
