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.

On the inner side
at top a figure of Eve with distaff, below her a figure of Adam delving
The text is in French
Until we reach Eneas, there are only medallions inscribed with names, after that the text begins
En la noble cite de graunt troie ili auoit un noble chiualer
Some periods are copiously treated, others very briefly
The Welsh princes occupy the central line: the English kings are on R.
At and after “Edmond le filz Athelrede,” the pedigree of Lacy occupies the L. side, illustrated with shields
At Henry III the pedigree of the Conte Mareschalle begins
The original hand I think ended with the shield of “ Monsr Richard heir lineale al duchie de ╚Łork et al countee de la marche et duluestre et ffoundre de Wygemore
The subsequent medallions are added by another hand: they contain the names of “ Edwardus dei gratia verus et indubitatus Rex ” (Edward IV), of Lady Anne daughter of Richard of York, and of Lady Anne, eldest daughter of Henry of Exeter, born in 1461
On the outer side
the text is begun at the top and broken off; it is resumed lower down
“Considerans historic britonum pictorum scotorum anglorum danorum ac normanorum prolixitatem”
The text is in Latin, giving a genealogy from Adam to Henry V, without illustrations
