Dialogue in French (Dean and Boulton no. 291). The name of W. Kingsmill is changed to Gilliam Scrivener and the examples from Oxford are changed to London, as in MS. Cambridge, Univ. Library Dd.12.23. Printed by P. Meyer, Romania 32(1903), pp. 49–58 (cf. also B.L.R. II, 1946, p. 146).
With examples from Oxford and its neighbourhood. The latest date is 1441–2. Another MS. is Lat. misc. d. 69.
At fol. 37r there is a change of hands and decoration; hand (a)'s rubric 'Indentura domus bracinii seu pandoxatoris' is crossed through and replaced with 'Indentura firme specialis parcellis reservatis'; and from fol. 38v the text diverges from the parallel text in MS. Lat. misc. e. 103.
Apparently breaking off unfinished at the end of fol. 54r (fol. 54v is blank), part-way through 'Presentacio ad vicariam vacantem per mortem'.
