LEONARDI ARRETINI HISTORICI AELOQVENTISSIMI HISTORIARVM POPVLI FLORENTINI LIBER DVODECIMVS ET VLTIM VS FOELICITER FINIT AB[N126] AMERIGO CORSINO TRANSCRIPTVS ANNO DOMINI MO CCCCO LXO IIII0 MENSE FEBRVARIO SVMMO PONTIFICE PAVLO.[N127] [N126] I express my indebtedness to Professor A. J. Dunston of the University of Sydney for drawing my attention to the erased words AB AMERIGO . . . PAVLO which he had read under ultra—violet light. [N127] The Pontificate of Paul II was from 1464 to 1471. Amerigo Corsini (1452—1501) was a celebrated Florentine scholar and friend of the Medici family, cf. P. 0. Kristeller, Supplementum Ficinianum, 2 vols, Florence 1937, Vol.I, p.113 and Vol.II, p.330. His precociousness in transcribing this MS. in his very early teens has been discussed by Professor A. J. Dunston
