Type of evidence: s: evidence from the style of script or illumination
Notes on evidence:

As well as the identification of this in the medieval catalogue, the script is a Rochester type like that in BL, Royal 5 C. i and 6 C. iv and the binding is similar to another Rochester manuscript, Bodley 387, and like that has the words 'S Wigorniae' on one of the endleaves (s. xvi). A strip has been cut from the bottom of fol. 1, which is the usual position for a Rochester inscription.

Contents of the book:

Augustine, De nuptiis et concupiscentia; id., Contra Pelagium.

There is not any evidence or probability that this manuscript was once at Pembroke, Cambridge, as guessed by M. R. James.
