Calendarial tables and Sarum calendar
Rubric: Tabule Kalendarii

A set of calendarial tables together with a Sarum calendar of feasts and holy days. The tables were originally made in 1463, see fols. iii v, 1v, 2r and the opening words of the preface, which are also found in Nicolas de Lynne's Tables 1387–1462, disguise the fact that the two prefaces are different. At Sept. 6 is an odd 16th cent. addition 'Eugenii Episco'.
