Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
The first part of this composite manuscript from the Carthusian Monastery of Basel contains Aristotle’s writing on the soul, De anima, in William of Moerbeke’s translation, copied in Paris in 1459 by the scholar Johannes Heynlin. The main text, decorated with artistic initials with gold leaf as well as fleuronné initials, is closely surrounded by commentary in marginal and interlinear glosses, written in a small, compact semi-Gothic script. Bound into this volume as the second part is Aristotle’s De animalibus, printed in Venice in 1476; this text’s uncharacteristic lack of decoration at least raises the question of whether it was also part of Heynlin’s library.
