Summary

Main text of the manuscript is a s. x2 copy of Boethius, De consolatione philosophiae. Inscriptions on fols 77 and 78 each record the gift of this manuscript to Exeter by Leofric. Ker (1957, p. 353) demonstrates that the two inscriptions, which are each in a different hand, were originally in separate volumes. Presumably from Exeter. According to Drage 1978, these are her Scribes 2 and 10.
