The Sevillian (from Lebrija) Antonio de Nebrija gave special attention to prepare texts which were useful for the teaching of Latin. In this case, the chosen texts are a set of liturgics hymns that the great grammar teacher annotates: a table at the end lets us know that there are 85 hymns displayed.

There is, strangely, a metrical colophon at the end. In this edition's case, the year, 1515, has been tried to be updated 'metrically', but the information concerning to the day and month end of the work, 1st of February, is kept from the previously used colophon in a previous edition in 1508.  It was difficult to add that change and accidentally the edition was wrongly dated. Some of Jorge Coci's trademarks appear above the metrical colophon. 

The hymns text has been printed with bigger typescripts and the comment or note has been printed interlined with smaller typescripts. At the side, as an apostille, the songs' titles are being displayed, its metric shape, the canonical time at which they are being sung, etc. Some scenes of Christ accompany the text, made with xylographic prints with different results.
