On fol. 1 two blue initials flourished in red; otherwise plain red or blue initials.
Standard Merton s. xvii; sewn on five bands; formerly chained from the usual position. Near the foredge of fol. ii, near the foot, is the mark of a chain-staple; this does not occur on fol. i because a portion of the leaf has been torn away at this point. Near the foot of fol. 229 are the marks of the large iron chain-staple. The first and last leaves were pastedowns in an earlier binding.
