An album of originally 36 leaves, into which 14 further pairs of leaves have been added by slipping through extra gold threads wrapped around the spine. There are 39 dried pressed plants: 30 of these are mounted (ff. 8rv, 11rv, 16r, 19rv, 28rv, 31rv, 38rv, 43rv, 52rv, 57rv, 59rv, 61r (x4) v, 62rv, 64rv) and 9 were pressed onto the paper before the text was written (ff. 3r, 5r, 22r, 26r, 34r, 41r, 45r, 50r). The plants are apparently all seaweed, some labelled in pencil, e.g. Rhodymenia palmata (f. 62v). Perhaps some are colored.
