Chapter Summary

Bartholomew's Latin translation of the Essay, which survives in a single manuscript in Padua, Antoniana XVII 370, was published in a diplomatic edition by Kley 1936, 3-13, with a slight philological commentary. As a diplomatic edition, Kley's text reproduced exactly the wording, spelling, capitalization, and punctuation in the manuscript. Not having seen the manuscript, but also because of the nature of the slavishly literal translation, the author has thought it best to print the text as published by Kley except for the following features which are intended to enhance the usefulness of the Latin translation for the student of the Greek text of Theophrastus.

Keywords: Bartholomew; Greek text; Kley; Latin translation; Theophrastus
