Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern Italian description: Eugenio IV. 1441. Anno 11. Lib. 1. On a fiyleaf are the contemporary notes, in different hands: 'Roberti' (cancelled), 'Hermannus,' 'Rubricatas per me Hermannum Lutke[n]hus' and 'Primus de beneficiis vacantibus et dignitatibus vacantibus Anno ximo (which last occurs also, as the usual contem. porary description, on the bottom edge of the volume, with the addition of 'Eugenii pape iiiiti'.)
