Collection of comedies by José de Cañizares. Table of contents with heading, "Tabla delas com[edia]s que contiene este libro de Figurones de Castro" (f. 1r), with Castro likely referring to a theater or theater owner. However this manuscript contains only the first three of the ten items listed in the index. The last four folios (f. 195r-198v) appear to be different in origin and unrelated to the Cañizares text. The text on them is in German and appears to consist of short diary entries ranging in date between 16 February 1585 and 14 August 1598. At the top of f. 195r a later hand has written the name "Aug. Merz Rotenb.", the phrase "Progymn. Rotenb. Rector" and the date 1862. The notes on f. 198v are in pencil and appear to be later in date than the rest.
- Ms. codex.
- Title from spine.
- Titles of the three plays are taken from the text, from the headings for each act. The titles of the first two plays have a slightly different form as listed in the index (f. 1r): De los hechizos de amor la musica es el mayor y el montañes en la corte; De comedia no se trate, alla ba [= va?] esse disparate.
- Later note on f. 2r: "Esta comedia es de Cañizares. Véase el Catálogo de Barrern , paj. 540." This refers to "De los echizos de amor."
