Footnotes

1 Here also infimam, and here uncorrected.
2 On the back of the volume is the usual modern label, with ‘Nicol. V.de Curia. Lib. xi. To. xxxvi.’ Inside the cover is the usual front half of the original sheepskin binding, with ‘mccccli,’ and other more or less contemporary notes, but not the usual number of the Liber. A flyleaf follows, with ‘Nicolai V. de Curia. Lib. xi. Tom. xxxii,’ in the hand of Giovanni Bissaiga, after which come the rubricelle, headed ‘Secuntur rubricelle undecimi libri de Curia incepte de anno quinto pontificatus domini nostri domini Nicolai pape Vti.’
3 Spelt ‘Douglas’ in the rubricelle.
4 So spelt also in each of the following, the usual spelling being ‘Bouron.’
5 Pro te dilecto suo.
6 dilectus.
7 in quintodecimo vel circa tue clatis anno constitutes, the same word as above, f. 124d, although there is a difference of some three years an a half between the alleged dates of the two letters.
