St John's College MS. 157
(pastedowns only) Job glossed
This modern MS, which begins with an Oxford disputation and sermon, both dated 1540, contains medieval binding materials:Job,
5:16–18 (the rear pastedown) and 6:11–22 (fols. i–iiv; the leaf has been bound backwards), with the ordinary gloss (Stegmüller, Bibl. 11800 [9:485–6]). There are a few early marginal notes on fol. ii, and a good many pen-trials, s. xv/xvi, on fol. iiv and the rear pastedown (upside down).
The writing covers most of the leaves (an intact leading edge on the front, the large lower margin on the rear leaf): a text column 30–45 mm wide, set into a gloss column 70–85 mm wide. At the fullest, 22+ surviving lines of text, 45 lines of gloss. Prickings on the front leaf; some bounds in brown ink, the rules apparently in lead.
Written in gothic textura semiquadrata, s. xiii med. (both text and gloss are above top line on fol. i–ii recto, but only the text so on the verso).
