Collection of 16th-century Italian poetry that contains a preface by Tansillo dedicating the work to Iacopo Carafa (in the manuscript as Carrafa) as well as a list of errata. Also includes two other works: Stanze in Lode della Menta; and Recapricci del Carrara. The caption title of the third work describes the work as "Enigme" and attributes them to Giovanni Lombardello. It consists of 75 sonnet "enigmas" and is dedicated to Giovanni Batista Carrafa. On f. 248v, after the end of the list of solutions, is the inscription: "In Napoli Jo: [Sul]tzbach A di. 28. Genn. 1544." This might be the publisher and the date of the printed work from which this copy was made.
- Ms. codex.
- Title for manuscript from caption title for predominant work (f. 137r), with alternate title given as well: Stanze di coltura sopra gli horti delle Donne (f. 137r).

The front flyleaf is missing. The first leaf is almost entirely separated from the binding.
