Printed edition of L'ethica d'Aristotile ridotta in compendio da Ser Brunetto Latini (Lyon: Giovanni de Tornes, 1568), followed by a manuscript collation of the printed edition with a manuscript copy, with variants listed in two columns with the headings Nello stampato and Nella copia. The manuscript collation begins with a note that the manuscript used for the comparison belonged to Giovanni Vincenzo Pinelli. The printed work is an Italian commentary on Aristotle's Nicomachean ethics often attributed to Latini as in the printed work but correctly attributed in the heading of the manuscript to Taddeo Alderotti (Taddeo Medico, f. 1r).
