Edwardi I. Regis Angliae, Brevivm Registrvm.
The Register of Royal Briefs which is written in a late XIII. Cent. notarial hand very possibly represents the correspondence of Edward I. (1272-1307), as the initial (S) of the name of the Bishop of Waterford mentioned in the last line above was more probably that of Stephan de Fulburn II. (1273-1286) than that of Stephen I. (about 1238), and these are the only names of incumbents of that see with this initial. Apparently these Royal Briefs have not been published.
On 1, 1 recto in a XV.-XVI. Cent. hand (over an earlier inscription, erased, previously cast off on the verso of iii, 4, where, however, it is indecipherable): prophetia Johannis de Rupescissa. Under this is a geometrical (astrological) diagram. The verso appears to contain notes in reference to this figure.
Johannes de Rupescissa (Jehan Rochetaillade, Roquetaillade) was a Franciscan monk of Aurillac who was imprisoned by Pope Clement VII. for attacking the vices of the clergy.
On 1, 2 recto is a table, and notes, with the heading in the same early XV. Cent. hand as opposite: Eleuacio solis in qualibet hora cum indicibus.
On f. 182 verso after the text in an early XV. Cent. hand, come nineteen lines of English, beginning: If thou wilt witte in what house of the day what | planet regneth... and ending: and thou hauest | thi purpose . if the cloke be truhe (?) in smythyng.
The last leaf (f. 183) is covered with hurried scribbles.
On v, 1 recto which, like ii, 1., was originally attached, in a XVI.-XVII. Cent. hand within the innermost of three roughly drawn squares: makus, meuus | moreus | Doo make me | no more ade.
For 'Ali ibn al 'Abbas, see T.1.1.
