Description

The Etymologiae of Isidore of Seville. The manuscript is not illustrated.

"The manuscript consists of 20 quires, numbered I-XX. Quire V consists of 6 folios (f. 33-38), XV of 5 folios (f. 111-115, 3 bifolia, last folio cut off). Quires I-IIII, VI-XIIII and XVI-XVIII are quaternions. The inner 3 bifolia of quire XX have been lost, causing a lacuna in the text from XIX.28.9 ex usto est to XX.12.4 renres [! plures calones edd.] atque caballi. The quire numbers are found on the verso of the following folios: 8, 16, 24, 32, 38, 46, 54, 62, 70, 78, 86, 94, 102, 110, 115, 123, 131, 139, 147, 149

An anonymous text on calculation ("Singularis quemcumque multiplicat ... Aureus minus decabit maius undecabit") has been copied on the last page of the manuscript; this text shows similarities but is not identical with a text published as an appendix in Gerberti Opera Mathematica, ed. N. Bubnov, Berlin 1899, p. 224f.

The origin of the manuscript is not known. It has belonged to the monastery of Nienburg in the diocese of Magdeburg in Germany (cf. exlibris on f. 1r). It later belonged to the library of Gottorp Castle in Schleswig, whose entire collection of manuscripts was transferred to the Royal Library in Copenhagen in 1735." - Kongelige Bibliotek
