The text begins with calligraphic letters "KL", some textual additions in several different hands, as well as 19th century notes on the text in red ink. Among the feast days for January two obits have been inserted by a contemporary hand. The first states, following the obit symbol, that Nicholas the parish priest ("plebanus") left a legacy of ten solidi under a pledge/pawn. The second indicates that another Nicholas, the treasurer ("sacellarius") and his legal wife made a bequest to the parish priest under pledge/pawn. [from dealer description]
