__|a  Ms. codex.
__|a  Title from closing rubric (f. 66r).
__|a  Heading on f. 1r: Comincia il libro primo dell'Etica da Aristotile nel quale tratta della felicitade.
__|a  Incipit: Ogne arte et ogne doctrina et ogne operatione et ogne electione ... (f. 1r).
__|a  Collation: Parchment, 71; 1, [i]², 1⁸( -1), 2-8⁸, 9⁶( -1); [ii, 1-69]; modern foliation, upper right recto. The first leaf is the front endleaf and is conjugate with the front pastedown. The back pastedown is numbered f. 70.
__|a  Layout: Written in 20 long lines; ruled in lead; prickings visible.
__|a  Script: Written in a large gotica cancelleresca script in a single hand, except for the first leaf, which was lost or mutilated at an early date and was replaced about 1450 by another leaf written in a rather rough hand (f. 1).
__|a  Decoration: 7-line decorated initial in red and blue (f. 1r); rubricated headings; red and blue used for highlights, initials.
__|a  Binding: Blind-stamped dark brown morocco, probably Florentine, ca. 1450 (perhaps contemporary with the replaced f. 1); gilt rondels and clasps missing.
__|a  Origin: Written in Italy, before the Golden Bull of 1356; after 1356 the electorships were held by different lay princes than those listed here (f. 66r; Witten).
__|a  Generally in good condition. Some stains and smudges on the leaves. Ink faded on some folios. Outer hinges of cover starting to crack.
520:
__|a  Compendium of Aristotle's Ethics (both the Nicomachean and the Eudemian, or Great Ethics), followed by a list of the electors of the Holy Roman Empire (f. 66r).

Library Chronicle 24 (1958), 84-103. Includes section: "Manuscripts (Catalogued by Norman P. Zacour)" (p. 94-98). The Zacour-Hirsch Catalogue (p. 98) says that this manuscript is listed in the Riley/Zacour Aristotle catalog as item number M2A. However, an examination of the Riley/Zacour Aristotle catalog turned up no such item number; nor was this manuscript found listed under any other item number.
