Folios 1-6v: (1) Calendar (not full), holy days entered in red or black, sometimes in faulty Latin. Among the entries in red: 'Rexuressio' (!) 'domini' (29 March; on 2), 'Aparetio' (!) 'sancti Michaelis archangeli' (8 May; on 3), Dominic (4v), Francis (5v). Among the entries in black: Constantius (on 1), Erculian (2), Clare (4v).

Folio 7: (2) Easter table dated 1524 (cf. Easter table in TCD MS 267), with dominical letters and with these headings for entries ‘Claues’, ‘Luna’, ‘Concorentes’, and with this notice (at the foot of the table) in Vaudois dialect: Daquesta taula pascal las lectras meras seruo ha Abril. Mas las rosas a Marcz 1524 per lectra dominical b, d’luna 8. In keeping with the statement, the days of April are in black ink and those of March are in red ink. A hand in red points to dominical letter b toward the top of the table.
Custodial History TCD MS 260 was c1603, with other manuscripts in Vaudois, in the hands of Dominique Vigneaux d’Angrogne, a pastor in the Piedmontese Val de Pragela; later the Synode des Vallées sent all these manuscripts to Jean-Paul Perrin for use in his 'Histoire des Vaudois', which was published in Geneva, 1619; by 1635, James Ussher had purchased these manuscripts from a French jurisconsult of unknown name: see Esposito t.c. 129-130. For Ussher’s interest in the Waldensians see Balmas and dal Curso o.c. 12-13 n.18.
