NOTE: Text mainly in Latin and partly in Old French (Calendar, rubricated introductions to the Hours and sections, hours of the Passion, Suffrages). COLLATION: i + ii (paper) + iii + iv + 24⁸ (1-191, 1 is inserted and pasted to 8 with a stub,) + 1⁸⁽⁻⁷ʹ⁸⁾ (192-197, the last two leaves have been cut off).

The Calendar pages are ruled differently from the text, to accommodate numbers and letters (94 x 58 mm.). Leroy 43C1, written in 16 lines below top line. SCRIPT: French Gothic "textura", by the hand of Paulinus the Sorcy, who claims the paternity of the book on the colophon note on f.15r. The first leaf of the Calendar, f.1r e v, is by a different hand, a little closer to a 'batarde' script. This leaf is inserted as a "cancellans" and attached to the eighth leaf of the quire with a visible stub, so probably is from another source. DECORATION: Calendar pages present the abbreviation KL in gold leaf. The dominical letter A alternates in gold and blue. Ornate pages with figurative borders, human and grotesque figures, dragons, animals: 17r, 27r, 39r, 44v, 48v, 52v, 57r, 64r, 69r, 105r, 115v, 130v, 174v. Secondary gold initials, 4-, 2-line. Tertiary initials (litterae florissae), alternating gold and blue. BINDING: early XX century. Dark brown leather over pasteboards. Full gilt with internal tools. Full gilt spine, with corner and center tools. Bound by J. Bold & Sons, Bristol, England. Gilt edges with diapered pattern. PROVENANCE: the scribe gives his name: Paulinus de Sorcy, in the Colophon: "Paulinus de Sorcy Scriptoris hunc libru[m] scripsit et i[n] o[mn]ibus co[m]plevit. Misereat s[u]i d[eu]s". On the inside of the front board is pasted a printed armorial bookplate. It represents the crest of the Beard family. Underneath the name "Joseph Beard, Alderley". Burke locates this family in Sussex. PLACE OF CREATION: Southern France

Provenance The scribe gives his name: Paulinus de Sorcy, on colophon note on f.15 r. On the inside of the front board is pasted a printed armorial bookplate. It represents the crest of the Beard family (see Burke, B., The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, 1842, 4th reprint 1969, p.61): “On a chapeau gules, turned up ermine, a tiger couchant”. In a circle / belt around the crest runs the motto “Virtus semper viridis”. Underneath the name “Joseph Beard, Alderley”. Burke locates this family in Sussex (Aberton and Cowfold). On the top flyleaf is a comment note in English, not signed: “At the foot of page 5 of the prayers (after the Kalendar) is found the name of the writer Paulinus de Sorcy, whose writing seems to have been better than his Latin imposition”. On some blank pages are handwritten dedication notes, in French, undated. On f.iii r, in French, 19th century handwriting: “Madame […..] A P[….]e”. On f.iv r, in French, 18 century handwriting: “a Joan Garlie Chirurgie”. On f.195 v, in French, by an uncertain hand, 19th century handwriting: (partially trimmed) “Monsieur [.]eu, Moreau che Mademoiselle Caton sa soeur le Binson comme”.
