The James Catalogue was digitized then marked up following the TEI P5 Guidelines. The customized model was provided by Giuliano Di Bacco, stored in an ODD file (parkerweb.xml): the latter was written by GDB using ROMA vers. 2.x, with manual adaptations. The ODD file is used as a source to compile the actual schema used to validate the xml: it is advisable to compile it in RelaxNG sintax (parkerweb.rnc) through ROMA.

Anselm of Canterbury OSB (attrib.) Tractatus de uirtute corporis Christi (Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Anselmi tractatus de virtute corporis Christi (Content authored by Nasmith)
f. iiir-iiiv is from another book (xiii-xiv). At top is the end of a table to some treatise
iiir
Rubric:
Tractatus beati Anselmi de uirtute corporis christi
iiir
Incipit:
Quia de sacramento altaris persepe sermo incidit
iiiv
Explicit:
et gustus noster dissimulare non potest
On f. ivr are scribbles: many numbers of Epistles noted: a pencil scribble: Ven. patri etc. Abbati Glastoniensi ffr. W. (dominus prior?) et precentor ecclesie Elyensis Salutem
On f. ivv two extracts (xii):
a. Caue frater illud quod multi stulti faciunt qui quanto diutius uiuunt tanto maiorem sibi spem uiuendi nutriunt etc.
b. De elemosina. Si quis eorum qui habent substantiam mundi
A note (xv): “de sorte Iohannis wickam monachi monasterii S. Edmundi de buree actualiter scolatisantis Oxon. et permansuri ibi dum modo sit deputatus et legit(ime) electus per capitulum”
A few scribbles on the next leaf: 'ad festum S. eadmundi' is one. Another seems to be in Bale's hand.
I notice that Bale in a list of MSS. that had belonged to him (Scriptores Britanniae, p. 165, Basle edition) includes:
Anselmi archiep. ccclxvij Epistolae
Eius meditatio de aeterna beatitudine”
which corresponds strikingly with the contents of this MS
