Neapolitan chronicle starting with the Angevin conquest of the Sicilian kingdom in 1266 and recording events until 1478.
- Ms. codex.
- Title from title page (p. iii).
- Incipit (p. 1): Papa Urbano IIII di na[tivita?] francese per la malignità di Manfredo ...
- Inscription at bottom of title page: "Da Ettore Capece Latro Napolitano"; this note is repeated on the title of an incomplete index table at the end (recto of folio following p. ). This note could be interpreted as indicating that a man of this name was the author. However it is more probable that the renowned jurist in Naples, Ettore Capece Latro, a member of a great patrician family, who died in 1654, copied the present manuscript from an earlier copy in the possession of the Dukes of Monteleone, perhaps in his youth.
- Bookseller's notes (H. P. Kraus) on file in the Library.
