CCCC MS 426 is formed from two manuscripts. The first, of the fifteenth century, is a copy of De fato et fortuna by Coluccio Salutati (1331-1406). The second volume, dating from c. 1475, is made up of extracts containing descriptions of the Holy Land from Opus maius (pt. iv, sec. 5: Geographia) by Roger Bacon (c. 1214-c. 1292), The travels of Sir John Mandeville (possibly by Jean le Long, d. 1388) and a third, unidentified text as well as a copy of Bede's De locis sanctis. The tracts by Bede and Roger Bacon are both incomplete, lacking their final sections. At the end of Mandeville's Travels there is a full-page map of the Holy Land.
