Comment

The faint, simple decorations may have been done by a printshop illuminator, who would then have sold it to a scrivener. There appear to have been two scriveners who worked on this piece. The handwriting in red (which was underlined twice in the transcription to distinguish it) appears to be by the Bracketed Dates scrivener.

Condition

Good
