The original inventory also survives however (or else a 15th-century copy of it). It includes a description, slightly different in interesting ways, of the same four-volume set:
"The 1464 Beauvais catalogue lists a missal in four parts, of which the third does not describe what we've got here: "Et le tiers volume contient les Epistres et les Euvangilles, depuis l'Advent jusques au premier dimenche après Pasques ..." In fact, it is the description of volume II that seems closer to what survives: "... depuis la Resurrection jusques a la fin ..." (Omont, p. 39, no. 61)."This got me thinking.
"three types of marginal markings: a hand with a triangular cuff and long pointing finger, a group of 4 dots arranged in a saltire pattern, and (most distinctive of all) a mark like a sideways icecream cone"
