Physical description:
206 leaves : paper, col. ill. ; 270 x 200 (204 x 115) mm. bound to 280 x 215 mm.
Collection of Aristotelian works and other philosophical works, including works on logic; short tracts (some incomplete) on Aristotle's Categories, De interpretatione, and Posterior analytics; and several works on Aristotle's Physics (including commentaries by Antonius Carpentier on both the Physics and the introduction to the Physics by Jacques Lefèvre d'Etaples published in 1492), this last group (f. 148v-206r) being more decorated than the rest of the manuscript. The beginning of the Reportata in Logicam Aristotelis has a marginal commentary (f. 22r-29v); in the rest of the manuscript, headings and notes are written in the margins.
