About a century after this manuscript was written, someone decided that it would be easier to consult if it had some sort of table of contents, so he decided to compile such a list on this flyleaf. As it turned out he only got as far as the first of the five books. The large letter 'B' below is press-mark, which indicates the book-cupboard in which it was kept, at the Benedictine abbey at St. Albans.
