Two folios in a miscellany of 80 folios consisting of fragments, mostly liturgical, taken from bindings (foll. 5 and 75-76 are described in C.L.A, 5.582 and 5.583); part of the text has been cut off; present measurements 285 X 205 mm.
Origin probably Ireland or Northern England. Provenance unknown: an entry in Latin in sixteenth-century cursive (fol. 4v) has an umlaut-like accent above u which suggests a Germanic region; a sixteenth-century entry in French occurs on fol. 3. A note on the fly-leaf states that all the fragments constituting the volume were taken from manuscripts given to the binder in 1817.
Initials of Insular type, coloured red, brownish yellow, and greyish blue. Headings in red in script of the text. Membranes prepared in the Insular manner. Ink black. Script is a bold, heavy majuscule.
