Shelf-mark: Urbana, IL, University of Illinois Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Pre-1650 MS 0117.
Provenance: 1. Belonged to the library of the Palazzo Raffaelli in Cingoli, Italy -- 2. Belonged to the collection of Leo S. Olschki -- 3. Purchased from Kraus, 31 October 1957.
Origin: Presumably copied in Italy as suggested by the script. Date and scribe's name from colophon at 86v. Paper bears the watermark of a hunting horn, most similar to those of northern and central Italian production from ca. 1400, as found in Briquet, nos. 7665, 7669, and 7672.
Binding: Modern binding (19th-century), half-calf over boards.
Decoration: Rubrication throughout, including paragraph marks, with extended lacunae from 9v-12v, 14v-24v, 33v-36v, 39v-48r, 55v-60v, 68v-74r, and 77v-86r. Missing initials throughout.
Script: Main text written in a Gothic rotunda book hand by a single scribe, named Perus. Glosses are written in a miniscule cursiva.
Layout: Written in single column of long lines throughout. Prologue is written in 8-10 lines. The poem proper is written in 25-29 lines. Numerous marginal and interlinear glosses, written in a broadly contemporaneous hand (i.e. 15th-century) in Latin, spanning from the start of the text to 16r, trailing off sharply thereafter. Frame-ruled in lead with double vertical and double horizontal lines; prick-marks partially obscured by trimmed edges.
