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 shelf-catalogue occupies ff. 1r-80v. The Index ff. 82r-109r.
Research:The volume was admirably edited by Miss Bateson, Cambridge 1898, at the University Press.
Decoration:There are very handsome initials, principally in pen-work, to the divisions of the Catalogue: three elaborate ones are on f. 1r. On the margin of this has been a picture.
A roughly painted diaper ground remains, but an oblong patch, probably of finer vellum, which must have had a figure (either a suppliant or a dead man in a coffin), is gone.
Above this an early copper engraving has been pasted on the page and torn off all except a small corner.
Below the painted ground is the motto: “Viuentes in carne orate pro mortuis quia moriemini” .
