A flyleaf has, in contemporary hands: Primus de beneficiis (de dignitatibus) de prebendis (de prebendis of dignitatibus) vacantibus, ac litteris [dominorum] Cardinalium Anno x domini nostri Eugenii pape 4' (the words in round brackets are added in a different ink: a like description, for the greater part illegible, occurs on the bottom edge of the volume, as usual) and 'Nicolaus rubricauit Rome 1444, 19 Jan. per Nicolaum Gestendorp' the word Nicolaus being in a different hand from the rest of the note. The usual modern flyleaf description is wanting.
