  • [c.1775]

An illustrated guide to naval flags, indicating their meaning and where they should be placed on the ship. The inclusion of Vice-Admiral Anson's night signals, but lack of Captain Sir Home Popham's words and phrases, suggests that the manuscript was written between 1747-1799, though it is possible that it dates from prior to 1747 and Anson's signals were added at a later date.

Manuscript is in Latin, partly on vellum and partly on paper. The text consists of prayers and supplicatory rituals dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It is followed by the Office of the Angels, commencing at leaf 85, in a different hand. Nicholas Watson suggests in his essay in Clare Fanger's book Conjuring Spirits: Texts and Traditions of Medieval Ritual Magic (1990) that the manuscript is a partial copy of the Liber Visionum by Jean de Morigny, with the first part likely having been composed between 1304 and 1307 and the second part composed before 1315. Manuscript is bound in reinforced vellum with "Codex" stamped on spine and slipcased with "Prayer book. c 1460" stamped on spine.
