This manuscript is a thirteenth-century Vulgate Bible, written in England, lacking the Psalms and the prologue before Genesis. Many of the numerous brief marginal notes have been trimmed. The Bible is followed by the end of an incomplete Interpretation of Hebrew Names, starting in the letter S (fols. 249r-251r), and three pages of medieval notes (fols. 251v-252v). The published account of the first two articles (out of seven) agreed upon at a church synod that opened in London on 24 November 1584 is copied on a newer leaf at the end of the volume (fols. 253r-253v).
- Reader's note of scholarly references dated 1702 (fol. 136r); another reference in the same hand follows the 1584 synod articles (fol. 203r)
