Each item in the manuscript in turn is identified by folio number (r or v), and then either transcribed in full (English verse and private letters, including translations of the Symmachus letters) or by an incipit (all other items, including foreign-language ones). Other information about the item, including scribal hand, authorship, addressee (for letters), and date is also provided. Blank pages are so identified, and discrepancies or errors in assembly or binding noted. Conjectural transcriptions or attributions are so identified. If there is a commentary on the item, a note is given of where in chapters 9 and 10 it may be found.
