  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual Italian description: 'Eugenio IV. 1439 (corrected from `1440'). Anno 9. Lib. 118.' A flyleaf has, in contemporary hands: 'Primus de dignitatibus, prebendis, prebendis et dignitutibus ac beneficiis vacantibus Anno Nono domini nostri Eugenii pape 4' (the corresponding contemporary description on the bottom edge of the volume is almost illegible), 'Cristoforus' and 'Rubricatus est per me Cristoforum Fidelem'; and the usual modern 'Lib. cxviii, fol. 313.'
