UCB 145
The manuscript was once part of UCB 85 (no. 10 in the present census): ff. I-II were contained at the beginning of quire 5 of UCB 85 (f. 11 of UCB 145 formed a bifolium with f. 50 of UCB 85); f. 23rv of UCB 145 contains the first part of Petrarch’s Rer. famil. VII 17 which continues on f. 22 of UCB 85; Paper (ff. 2, 4, 6, 15 and 16, Huchet, similar to Briquet 7669; ff. 8, 9, 10, 11, 17, 19 and 21, Monts, Briquet 11667-11677), 23 loose folios, modern pencil folation, ca. 260-65 × 211-14 mm. (the bottom and side margins have been cropped), ruled by three vertical folds 54 mm. apart, with varying text length; the collation of the quires is problematic: the first quire is now composed of eight folios, ff. 1-8, with three loose folios (ff. 9-11) which were probably once part of the quire; the second quire was made up in part by ff. 12-16; the third quire was composed in part by ff. 17-22 (ff. 12-22 of UCB 145 were probably contained between quires 8 and 9 of UCB 85); f. 23 was the first folio of the second quire of UCB 85; there are varying numbers, ca. 35 lines, of long lines; except for f. 1v and f. 22v, the text is written in the same hand as that of the person who copied UCB 85, ff. 22-72v, 74-82 and 88-103v, in a gothic script of s. XIVex.-XVin., no catchwords or signatures. No decoration save for initials decorated in ink, probably by the scribe.
UCB 145 is now shelved in the same box with UCB 85 . f. I, blank.
