[134]). Signatures (unsigned gatherings): [1-78 812] Polain's mention of "fnc. 1," "fnc. 2," "fnc. 3, blanc," and "fnc. 4" needs to be corrected to "fnc. 2," "fnc. 3," "fnc. 4, blanc," and "fnc. 5" and be prefixed by "fnc. 1, blanc," which, though wanting in the copy located by him, is accounted for in his collation and is reckoned in the page count used to locate pages in quire 2 and following which are mentioned in the notes. Leaves printed on both sides; 33 lines per page. Pages [1-2], [7-8] and [135-136] are blank. Bookplate: Burndy Library ... gift of Bern Dibner. Armorial stamp on p. [3]: Walter Ashburner, Firenze.
