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.

The name of the author or possessor of this book was formerly written in golden letters on a vacant page at the end, but thro' time or accident is now partly defaced; the only remaining words are these, “Johannes Monke ... Michael...” (Content authored by Nasmith)
On f. 142v at top in gold are the names
Iohannes Monke ... Michael” but I see no trace of erasure. They have been meant to stand over a picture which was never drawn
