On a loose sheet of paper, early XVIII. Cent., is a list of numbers covering both sides (between iv, 1. and iii, 2.).
The shields on the front board contain (top) crossed swords (Saxony), (bottom) lion rampant sinister. The shields on the back board contain (top) 10 bars, bar dexter flory (Saxony), (bottom) eagle displayed, the head dexter.
This fine work is much damaged by damp, especially at the top. The foliation suggests a quire of ff. 12 lost at the beginning.
On i, 1 verso, under a reference to fol. 216, on the top margin of which the same XV. Cent. hand appears, is a medical receipt.
ii, 1 verso has the following entries in late XV. or early XVI. Cent. hand: Registrum fol. 24.| Anno domini 1455 Natus est March. Joannes die Sabati pridie stephani protomartiris hora prima post meridiem luna exeunte | in ariete | Anno domini 1460 natus est March. Frid. quinta feria que fuit octaua walpurgis | Infra primam et secundam post meridiem luna exeunte In sagittario | Anno 1464 feria tercia post vrbani nata est domina barbara.
Under two lines ruled across: Item Natus est March. Joachim Sigismundus Ipso die kathedre petri De mane versus auroram Infra primam et secundam horam Anno 1484(?) | Item Anno domini millesimo quadringentesimo nonagesimo Natus et March Alberchtus Sigismundus(?)

The recto of this fly-leaf (ii, 1.) contains, in a XV. Cent. notarial hand, the fragment of a declaration of allegiance on the part of "Leonhardus Parrer Clericus" to his ecclesiastical and temporal superiors, including The Holy Roman Empire, "Fredericus rex Romanorum" and "vobis henrice comes palatine," and dated: Datum posonii Strigamensis diocesis Anno domini millesimo quadringentesimo Tricesimo quinto die prima mensis Novembris. [i.e. at Pressburg, 1st Nov. 1435].

On iv, 1 recto, top, are two medical receipts, and lower, another in the same hand as made the second set of entries on ii, 1 verso, and referring to the Elector Joachim "Illustrissimo principe mi."
The verso of this fly-leaf contains a notarial document of the Bishop of Bamberg conferring on "Bertholdus Fil," a priest of Herbipolis (Würzburg), the living of Stutsteynnach, and dated (Monday, 9th September, 1439, about 9 a.m.): Acta sunt hec Bamberge in palacio meo episcopali Sub anno a [christo nato] millesimo quadringentesimotricesimonono Indictione Secunda Pontificatus Sanctissimi in christo principis et domini mei domini Eugenii diuina [gracia] Quarti anno nono die vero lune Septima mensis Septembris hora terciarum vel quasi.
