  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern Italian description: ‘Cal(i)sto iii. 1458. Anno 4o [sic]. Lib. 1.’ A flyleaf has the contemporary description: ‘Primus de diversis et de exhibitis anno iii. demini Calisti pape iii. et de exemptionibus (rectius exhibitis) diversorum annorum,’ above which is: ‘R(ecipe) Her., P. [de Varris],’ above which is again ‘Her.’, perhaps representing the certificate that the order has been obeyed, viz.: ‘[Rubricatus est per me] Her(mannum),’ A similar contemporary description occurs, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume. F. i. is headed: ‘de diversis 3o [anno] domini nostri domini Calisti pape iii.’ There are ff. i–cclxxxxvii. of text, a few of which are blank.
