Table of prescribed weights for varieties of loaves for different prices of wheat, with the heading The statute of wynchestre. Written in Winchester in the 16th century. After a preamble of 8 lines written in a cursive Gothic script, the table of 6 columns of 34 lines in textura script presents the prices of wheat in the first column followed by columns for 5 varieties of loaf (quarter symnell, farthing wastel, white lofe, wheten lof, and household lof). The preamble begins with the heading and a 6-line calligraphic initial in red ink. The columns alternate between red and black ink, with a drawing in faint red ink at the top of each column (a sack of grain over the first, a type of loaf over the others) and a drawing of a scroll in black ink enclosing the heading of each column.
