The text ends on folio 105 verso; on folios 106-107 recto in the same hand is a note `Ad sciendum de vita et morte Boetii Notandum ...’; folios 107 verso and 108 are blank.
The text is written in a round Italian gothic hand. There are initials in red and blue, infilled and framed with red and green, at the beginning of each book (folios 1, 15 verso, 35, 63 verso, 87 verso). There are plain initials (some shaded) at the beginning of each section, alternately red and blue; within sections there are alternate blue and red paragraph marks. The first letter of each line in the poetical parts and of each sentence elsewhere is picked out in red. The book number in red and/or blue appears in the upper margin of each recto.
There are English translations of words and sentences in a 16th-century hand between the lines and in the margins as far as the middle of book 3 (folio 56). On the front pastedown and endpapers are two poems in Scots (folio i verso, incipit
`Roys marie most of vertu virginal`: 2831.8 in ‘The index of middle English verse’; and folio ii recto, incipit `O mortall mane plungit in distress`: see ‘Two poems on the Virgin’), a philosophical work in Latin (folios ii verso-iv recto, incipit `sequuntur aliquot objectiones non minus ad precedentiam insollertium quam ad augmentationis habitum tendentes`), and the beginnings of an alphabetical list of Latin phrases (folios iv recto-v recto).
