  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Calisto iii, 1456. Anno 2. Lib. 1.’ A flyleaf has the contemporary description: ‘Primus de diversis de regularibus et de beneficiis vacantibus anno secundo domini [C]alisti pape iii,’ and the note ‘R(ecipe) Ag., P.’ (i.e. Petrus de Varris). A like contemporary description, apparently by the same hand, occurs also, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume. The same hand has also written at the top of f. 1 the rubric: ‘De diversis anno secundo domini Calisti pape iii.’ The volume contains i–cclxvii ff., a number of which, here and there, are blank.
  • 2. The date was ‘Millesimo quadringentesimo quinquagesimo septimo,’ but the ‘septimo’ is cancelled by ‘P[etru]s [de Varris],’ and is followed by ‘sexto.’
  • 3. nationis sue capitaneus.
  • 4. quodque homines in illis partibus degentes non usque adeo (? rectius hodie) in fide eruditi existunt.
