L.P.1: The old Laudian shelf mark E.64 is written in the right margin.
This front leaf is badly rubbed, and we have had in some instances to corroborate our guesses about the reading with Skeat's
transcription. For instance, at the top of the leaf, on the very edge of the cropped leaf, Skeat found the following words
in red ink:
Incipit liber de Petro Plowman
Pe... Plow.an. Beneath that is written in a late sixteenth-century hand
.... Robart Langeland borne by malbo
The first ten lines are boxed with a fine red line.
