This ms. was compiled by Italian monks in the monastery of St Michael, Pisa, probably about 1225 C.E. The colophon is about 200 years later, and in an English or possibly French hand; hence it is probable that the book was then brought to an English monastery and the two lines of the colophon inscribed. There are many small differences between this and the 1481 Vulgate ed.
The main text is printed in a central column, with spaces in between each line for glosses in smaller script. On either side of the text is a marginal commentary. The chapters are numbered. Written on both sides in the Gothic character. Full page measures 243 x 165 mm. Capitals in blue and red, a few illuminated. Rulings in pencil.
Some of the leaves are torn and stained but practically all of the writing is intact. A few worm holes.
Colophon reads: Iste liber est canonicorum regularium sancti Augustini congregationis lateranansis commemorantarium in monasterio sancti Michaelis discalciatorum extra menia Pisarum. Particulars of date given in a note by N.M. Richardson and obtained from Dr Warner of the British Museum in 1905.
