|Physical Description||Large folio volume|
The manuscript consists of 46 large folios and 1 small folio; in addition, 2 stubs precede f 1; 6 stubs precede f 34 and 1 stub precedes f 37.
|Descriptive Features||The manuscript is entirely made of large sheets folded once forming large folios; there are no deckled edges because the paper was uniformly trimmed for binding; the cropping seems to have been minimal and no text was lost.|
46 large folios exhibit irregular chainlines at 30, 31 and 32 mm apart; 8 to 9 laid lines per centimeter; there are no paper-maker's devices anywhere in the sheets which may indicate that the paper was made in England; the small folio (f 41) appears to be of French origin but it is the half of the sheet which does not show a watermark device; chainlines are about 25 mm apart.
