Notes: 
Full facsimile available on 'manuscriptorium.com' with description based on Bartoš's catalog (Bartoš 1927) and details on decoration borrowed from Brodský (2000). The manuscript has been traditionally situated to the Carmelite monastery at the church of Our Lady of Snow in the New Town of Prague, established by Charles IV in 1347 (this provenience is still given also in the Catalog of Brodský [Brodský 2000]). The repertory of the manuscript, however, points clearly to the Cathedral provenience (possibly to the use of the collegium of mansionarii). Proper and Ordinary tropes from the manuscript are included in the RTB edition. Scribe of the manuscript - Bartholomeus (Barta) of Verona (Beroun in Central Bohemia) is also documented as the scribe of the manuscript CZ-Pu I c 6 with the Liber erudicionis principium (Guillelmus Peraldus), f. 115r ("Anno domini 1392 finitus feria quita post penthecosten per Bartam Beron."), see also Vyskočil 1947.
