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.

Vincent of Beauvais OP, Speculum naturale, books 2-17(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Vincentii Speculum Naturale I-XV
Codicology:Vellum, 240 x 215 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (13.3 x 8.5 in.), ff. 384 + 6, double columns of 45 lines. Cent. xiv early, very well written. Flyleaves, 2 at the beginning and 4 at the end from a xiv-xvth century copy of a commentary on Job in double columns, badly written.
Collation: a2, 18-488 b4.
2 fo.: diffinire uolens.
Provenance:At top of f. 1r (xv-xvi) is the word or name “May” . On f. 384v near the bottom in old pencil: “I (or X) C. xii” . At top of f. 1r an inscription has probably been cut off. I have an impression from the character of the writing (coupled with the press-mark, if press-mark it be, at the end) that the book is from Norwich Priory.
Foliation: ff. i-ii + 1-21 + 21a + 22-388 + iii-iv(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)

1  Note that in the printed editions Liber I is the compiler's Preface to the whole Speculum, which is not in this copy. Liber I of this MS. therefore = Liber II of the print and so on. Further, books X and XI of the print are here shortened (esp. book X) into one book, Liber IX. Liber X of the MS. therefore = XII of the print and so on, XV of the MS. = XVII of the print.
