Description

Albertus Magnus, De animalibus. Written in Germany in the second half of the 15th century

Text:

f.1r-388v: Scienciam de animalibus secundum eam quam in principio premisimus diuisionem post scientiam de vegetabilibus...Hec igitur de uermibus dicta sint a nobis...et ego talium hominum parum curo reprehensiones. Explicit edicio alberti magni quam scripsit diffuse et gloriose de naturis animalium. Deo gratias.

Paper, with parchment bifolios at beginning and end of each gathering (watermarks: similar to Briquet Lettre P 8606 and 8625), Written in two columns, frame-ruled in crayon with double (occasionally single or triple) horizontal bounding lines full across; single inner and double outer vertical bounding lines; remains of prickings in upper, lower, and outer margins.

Written by a single scribe in a neat running script for the text and a more formal style for rubrics.

First initial on f. 1r, 10-line, painted blue, on red and green ground, yellow highlights. Many small plain initials in red and/or blue. Major headings lacking; minor rubrics and red initial strokes throughout.
