Chapter Summary

The British Library Add manuscript. 18686 contains a commentary fragment of historical books, probably copied to the South of France in the second half of the fourteenth century. The manuscript contains 57 foliated sheets: 53 comment sheets foliated 3r to 55v, and folded and glued sheets at the beginning and the end of the manuscript, foliated 1-2 and 56-57. There are two types in the manuscript of foliation. The first foliation, more old, 1 to 53, appears exclusively on the comment sheets. Small module and under the last word of the first line is discreet and written in Arabic numerals. The second foliation, 1-57, takes all the original pages of the manuscript into account, including those composed of related documents. The authors assume that it dates from the time of binding, late nineteenth or early twentieth century. The original text of the chapter is in French.
