On the recto side of the first back flyleaf, another table of contents is added, written in different hands and with page numbers. In the margins, a few additions can be seen, e.g. musical notes on fol. 24v. In between the front flyleaves, two smaller loose leaves are found, one being a facsimile of one of the leaves, the other being a slip with notes from counting the leaves.
