  • a copy of O'Davoran's glossary (pp 45–68) by his grandfather, "a better copy than that in B.L. MS Eg.88", at Park, County Galway, in 1569.

This is followed by eighteen pages in Dubhlatach's handwriting, which

"... has all the appearance of a student's copybook or roughwork book ... Most of the page is covered with all kinds of scribbling, much of it in the nature of probationes pennae which are difficult to make sence of, or, in many cases, even to read ... it is difficult to make any sence of much of it, and matters are not helped by the employment of some rather unusual tachygrams."

The Sanas Cormac covers pages 79 to 103, followed on pages 104 to 106 by a fragment of an etymological tract as far as the letter C, then an imperfect copy of the Uraicipt attributed to Cenn Fáelad mac Aillila on pages 107 to 134. Pages 79 to 126, and 126b to 133, are in the handwriting of Dubhaltach's grandfather, Dubhaltach Mór.

Dubhaltach himself added a great many marginal notes in Irish, Latin, and on a few occasions, in Greek, using Greek lettering.

Famous quotes containing the word contents:

    Yet to speak of the whole world as metaphor
    Is still to stick to the contents of the mind
    And the desire to believe in a metaphor.
    It is to stick to the nicer knowledge of
    Belief, that what it believes in is not true.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The permanence of all books is fixed by no effort friendly or hostile, but by their own specific gravity, or the intrinsic importance of their contents to the constant mind of man.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    How often we must remember the art of the surgeon, which, in replacing the broken bone, contents itself with releasing the parts from false position; they fly into place by the action of the muscles. On this art of nature all our arts rely.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
