Chapter Summary

For a full description of the codex, one may consult the work done by Schum and Markowski in their respective catalogues of the Amplonian Library in Erfurt. There is no doubt that the questiones on the Isagoge take up the first 43 folios of the manuscript. The discussion of prius may, on the other hand, well have served as a bridge to a possible commentary on De interpretatione. The manuscript itself contains many variants, erasings, corrections and scribblings in the margins, which at least in some minor cases seem to be done by another hand. The slight variations in text width, letter height and line spacing suggest that the present text was not made without interruptions. All geographical speculations set aside, the overall high quality of the text, together with its obvious copy-character, suggests that the present text is not too far distanced from the basis text.

Keywords: Amplonian Library; De interpretatione; Isagoge; Markowski; Schum; Thomas Manlevelt
