Bodleianus Baroccianus 25.  (Madan Summary Catalogue no. 25 = old Bodley no. 1321.)  Early fourteenth century, bombycine paper, 296 fols. by a single hand.  Miscellaneous, mostly religious.  There seems from our film WEST.OXF.1.11 to be major water-damage to the top at least of those pages included on our film.  

The majority of the first 218 or so folios (with the exception of Constantine Manasses: fols. 159sqq.) is treatments of the Psalms, including metaphrases by Apollinarius and Ammianus and some of the the works by Psellus below (Iter Psellianum nos. 934, 1049, 1053, 1055, 1056, 1057, 1060, 1105: we give a link to the Google Books preview, but unfortunately none of these entries is included there).
