New Haven, CT, Yale University, Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library,  Beinecke MS 442
Description: ff. iii + 253 + iii - Eighteenth century. Brown calf with gold-tooled spine. Boards mostly detached, sewing breaking, part of spine leather wanting. - Acquired from L. C. Witten in 1970 as the gift of Edwin J. Beinecke. - Shailor, B. Catalogue of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, MS 442.
Notes:-Manuscript on parchment (thick, poor quality) of excerpts from the writings of Church Fathers, canon law, and conciliar documents. There has been extensive scholarly debate about the manuscript's provenance and its relation to other copies of the Pseudo-Isidore Decretals. The manuscript seems to have been written, corrected, and rubricated by multiple scribes and to have been composed in units; the quality of the parchment often changes from scribe to scribe.
