Two in situ fragments used as wrappers of a sixteenth-century book (Marc-Antoine Muret, Orationes, Venice, 1576). Both fragments are from the same breviary (and likely the same quire). One covers the back of book and is trimmed off around the sewing supports; the other covers the front of book and is similarly cut around the sewing supports, from. The fragments contain material for Holy Saturday and Dominica in Albis, respectively. Prayer sequences follow Franciscian use.
