Chapter Summary

The organum ptolomei ita sit text survives in four copies currently accessible to scholars, along with another listed by Zinner whose current location is unknown. The earliest manuscript copy may have been copied in or around 1434 and closely related to it is another of the four manuscripts. The texts listed by Zinner as 'organum ptolomei ad multas prouincias . . '. is a nebulous group, describing several different physical forms of the instrument under the same name. Returning to the development of the new versions of the organum ptolomei, the relationship between these instruments and the navicula appears more clearly.
