MS. Lat. liturg. f. 24
Summary Catalogue no.: Not in SC (late accession)
Beginning impefect at Ps.2:1 due to the loss of the first leaf; lacking Pss. 17:15-49:7 due to the loss of quires after fol. 22; lacking Pss.50:4-52:6 due to the loss of three leaves after fol. 25; lacking Pss.67:36-68:6 due to the loss of a leaf after fol. 49; lacking Pss.96:5-97:1 due to the loss of a leaf after fol. 112; and lacking Ps.109 due to the loss of a leaf before fol. 146. Offsets of decoration on fol. 212v suggest that the psalms were originally followed by another text, probably a Litany (and other texts?), and it is also likely that a calendar originally preceded the first extant quire.
Ruled in dark brown ink with 15 lines, of which the top and bottom ones extend the full width of the page, between single vertical bounding lines extending the full height of the page. 14 lines of text.
Border, initial. (P&A i. 693)
Most of the leaves which would have bourne major initials are missing, only one survives: (fol. 81v) Psalm 80: Six-line initial 'E'[xultate] in blue with white decoration and multi-coloured foliate scrolls, on a cusped gold ground; a gold bar runs the height of the text in the outer margin, extending into ivy-leaf sprays in the upper and lower margins.
Psalms with two-line initials alternately in blue with red penwork, or vice versa; verses with one-line initials alternately plain red or blue; line-fillers in red and blue.
Bound in 20th-cent. dark green leather; the spine with four narrow raised bands, and tooled in gilt 'PSALTERIUM' and 'SAEC XIV'.
