400 leaves : paper ; 203 x 150 (157 x 100) mm. bound to 209 x 153 mm.
Summary:
Contains "sonetos, canciones, decimas, liras, tercetes y otros diversos versos" (f. [viii] recto) of Lupercio and Bartolomé Leonardo de Argensola. There is an index of sonnets ("indice de sonetos") on f. [iii] recto-[x] verso, arranged alphabetically by first line. Poems on f. 1r-111r are the work of Lupercio Leonardo de Argensola; those on f. 112r-277v are the work of Bartolomé Leonardo de Argensola (cf. note, f. [xii] recto). Folios 278r-322v are blank. The four remaining works in the manuscript, all prose, are either expressly attributed to Bartolomé Leonardo de Argensola or are probably by him: f. 323r-325r contain a dialogue between Mercury and Virtue, by Bartolomé, described as "Dialogo de Luziano" (i.e., it appears to be a translation of a dialogue by Lucian); f. 325v-343r contain a dialogue between Damegeto and Hypocrates, entitled "Democrito" and described as a "Dialogo de Filopatro [sic];" f. 343v-357r contain a dialogue between Menipo [= Menippus?] and Arsitas, entitled "Menipo litigante" and described as a "Dialogo de Philopatro [sic];" f. 359r-369v contain the text of a letter from Bartolomé, with the heading "Advertimientos a los Diputados del Reyno de Aragon, de las partes que ha de tener el perfeto Choron[is]ta." Folios 357v-358v and 370r-v are blank. Folios 371r-387r contain lists of aphorisms, with the headings "Aforismos de cartas españolas de A.P."; "Aforismos de las cartas latinas;" and "Aforismos de la carta q[ue] adelante les presento a todos." These might come from the works of the Argensolas, but there is no further indication. Folios 387v-391r are blank. Folios 391v-392v contains what appear to be more aphorisms or sayings, without any heading.
