Document on fol. 275r-285v is sealed and authenticated by Franciscus Serantonius, apostolic notary (fol. 285v); document on fol. 406r-410v is sealed and authenticated by Fabritius [et?] Bri[h?]is, notary (fol. 410v). Manuscript leaves are interspersed with printed documents (fol. 8-15, 22-37, 51-60, 65-68, 89-97, 142-145, 185-201, 248-257, 289-295, 386-397, 426-427, 463-464, 492-503), most of which are copies of papal letters printed in Rome "nella Stamparia nella Reu. Cam. Apost." and "Ex typographia Reuerendae Camerae Apostolicae" between 1605 and 1674. Letters are organized choronologically by pope. Some letters contain corrections and marginal notations. Foliation jumps from 225 to 230; folio 388 incorrectly numbered as 387 (thus the number 387 appears on two consecutive folios).
