Nature of Facsimile:
Color -- Complete, but very awkward format since the text of the Apocalypse translated into Italian is printed facing each page of the manuscript. The text of the manuscript starts in the middle of Apoc. 2.23 with the beginning of the Apocalypse in Italian facing fol. 1r , and there is little or no correlation throughout between the Italian text and the facing illuminated page.
