Catholic controversial questions, some of them founded on the works of St Thomas Aquinas, in an unidentified hand, c. 1600. The contents are:
220x160 mm. 479 fos (3v-11v and 435r-479v blank). Table of contents at fo. 2. College bookplate (eighteenth century) inside front cover. Formerly classified as A.6.21 (cancelled inscription inside front cover). Presented by Henry, Earl of Southampton ('Hen. C. S.' inside front cover). James, following Cowie, suggests that the 'same amanuensis' (sic) was responsible for MSS M.1-5, and that the contents of M.1, 2, 3 and 5 'seem to have been the subjects of lectures etc. in some Spanish University, and were probably the property of an English Romanist exile'. However, items 21 and 22 suggest a Portuguese origin, and the hands in the five MSS are significantly different. A number pattern on fo. 3r.
A single, small, italic hand, with virtually no correction. The foliation is original, and there is an abortive reverse foliation 1 to 10 in the same hand. Paper. Original limp vellum binding, two pairs of ties now missing. Spine title: 'C. M. S. / Manuscriptum / Quart:'.
