For details, see Omont in our Bibliography and our Online Resources (where we give links to two scans, one at Google Books and one at the National Library; the former is a convenient way to save the entire catalogue, the latter to save a single page).  Our link "BnF" goes to the Library's record for this manuscript.

Moore (p. 735): "s. xiii ex.-xiv in. (See P. Gautier, Theologica, 1:xv, 'Haec igitur non solum e Pselli comentariis in Or. 45 (Op. 85-86; 88-94; 99-100), sed etiam ex aliis (Op. 20; 22; 53; 57; 64; 69; 74) proveniunt; quae omnia scholiasta ita conflavit, contraxit, commutavit, ut plenam collationem in apparatu critico apponere et molestum et parum fructuosum sit. Tamen, quamquam nullus tractatus adhibitus est qui non etiam in P [Paris gr. 1182] legitur, haec scholia ex P non pendere docent complures lectiones rectae in y [Paris gr. 571] exstantes ubi P vitio affectus est (Op. 22, 56; 89; Op. 53, 140; 146; Op. 64, 94; 95; Op. 74, 132; 139; Op. 93, 45; 46; 47; Op. 99, 30; 70). Quaedam lacunae codicis P ex y expleri possunt (vide Op. 74).' The exception to Gautier's statement that all the excerpts from Psellos in Paris gr. 571 are also found in the complete works in Paris gr. 1182 is THE.77. This is not found in Paris gr. 1182, although it might have originally occurred there in a now lost section): THE.1, 12, 15, 16, 23, 39, 54, 56-59, 61-67, 69, 70, 72, 77, 130."  See Iter Psellianum in Online Resources.

Prefaced by many lines of information about various codices, when this itself was Cod. 48, with many lines stricken through and updated.
