Manuscript Summary
A paper manuscript with two columns of text, missing its beginning, datable to the 14th century, written by various hands in turn, using Textura and Cursive. It contains a collection of what was originally 74 fables and legends in verse in Old French, following the model of the Vitae Patrum, which was originally written during the 12th century by a variety of authors. The manuscript is in its original binding of white leather; the flyleaves consist of notarial documents from the 13th/14th centuries, which have left traces of transferred text on the inner gace of the cover. On f. 186v the Exlibris Iste liber est de Joni de Densseuto is written twice, and on f. 92v is an announcement of the birth of the son of Pierre de Vatravers in the year 1465. (ber)
