Upright format, 315 x 200 mm. Two or more fascicles comprising eleven folios in total; collation unclear on account of the tightness of the binding. Now bound as pp. 66-87 of Mus. 49, a late 18th-century guardbook bound in white parchment over boards; pagination is modern. Pages 66-84 were originally paginated '1-19' by the copyist. Unused ruled staves on pp. 85-7. There is a pastedown slip at the centre of p. 10; this has not been lifted.

Provenance unknown, but presumably from either the Aldrich or the Goodson bequest.
