De Sacramentis Christianae Fidei (fragments)

Library ref: R099/Ar.4

Acquisition: The book in which the folios are found was presented to the Leeper Library in 1882 by G. W. Rusden;[N12] Geroge William Rusden (1819-1903), distinguished historian and educationist, cf. Aust.Enc., Vol.VII, pp.519-20.





Condition: Part of the left-hand side of each sheet has been folded and pasted on to the cover, the remainder of the sheet having been trimmed to the size of the printed page. The effect, when one comes to read the verso side, is that one is deprived of a vertical strip of the text in the second column. More text has been lost with the trimming of the upper and lower edges. Fly-leaf B is bound upside down; its text should be read before that of A.

Deco desc: the rubrics are red, while the plain initials are alternatively red and green

Dimensions: fol. A 165 x 130 mm., fol. B 165 x 143 mm

Extent: 2 folios serving as fly-leaves (front = A and back = B); both trimmed


Hand desc: French littera gothica textualis


Layout: two cols, each has lost several lines through trimming; the cols on A now have 32 lines and on B 27 lines
