MS 179, fol.2

MS 179, fol.2v

MS 179, fol.7

Vellum (HSOS).  Fols 7.  Overall 331 mm x 245 mm (writing area 211 mm x 153 mm).  In long lines, 33 lines to the page (excepting fol. 2r which has 32).  Prickings; bounded and ruled in red ink.  Written in French bastard secretary (lettre bâtarde), probably one scribe for item 1 and a second for the remainder (item 3 perhaps a third hand) [see Update].  Punctuation by point, punctus elevatus, and virgula, occasional double point on fol. 2r-v, point only thereafter.  The MS appears as Watson, DMO, no. 764 (1:126), on the basis that the first six leaves must date from the foundation of the fraternity in 1503; the final one, however, may have been added as late as 1517. For detailed descriptions, please see attachments.
