1 The number of the Liber is not given on the back of this register. Lateran Registers CXXXIII (an. 4 Gregory XII, 271 ff.), CXXXIV (an. 5 Gregory XII, 261 ff.), and CXXXV (an. 6 Gregory XII, about 100 ff., very imperfect), which are described on the back as Liber 2, 8 and 9 respectively, contain nothing for the present calendar. They concern almost exclusively Germany and Italy.
