Spec. Coll. copy: imperfect, last (blank?) leaf wanting. Nineteenth-century vellum binding; fore-edges turned in, with two pairs of leather ties; ms. spine title "Il Petrarcha;" painted coat of arms on upper cover, surmounted by a crown, in brown, red, blue, and yellow; edges stained blue. Canzones 105, 106, and 107 (now numbered in ms. 136, 137, and 138) have been circled and lightly redacted in ink, with the admonishment: "Proibito."
