Babel MS 4
Three fragments survive of this manuscript, giving a fair sense of what the layout of the volume. The script is slightly uneven and the measurements are not fully constant, suggesting that this manuscript -- presumably a complete Bible -- was not of the highest grade. The notably wide outer margins suggest it was created with an expectation of a gloss being provided which was never inserted.
One of the strips - Harsnett H.d.53 ii - is cut across an opening. The second section of text on its recto immediately precedes the text provided by Harsnett H.d.52 i.

History and further information
The fragments appear in two identical bindings: the manuscript was presumably dismembered in the binder's shop, perhaps in Cambridge, at some point after in the middle of the sixteenth century.
