Provenance: it seems that the MS. was among the volumes in the 19c. which formed the nucleus of the Library; it is inaccurately described in 1881 and again in 1916 (see the Bibliography below) as Logical treatise of the fourteenth century. This is written on very fine parchment and is in an excellent state of preservation.Õ
