Summary

Fragments from 2 leaves of a 13th-century copy of the early encyclopedia De proprietatibus rerum. Both fragments from Book 5, on physiology; the text of the upper fragment begins at the end of Chapter 12, De auribus and continues into the beginning of Chapter 13, De naso; the text of the lower fragment begins at the end of Chapter 28, De manibus, and continues into the beginning of Chapter 29, De digitis. Probably written in France, in Gothic script, with each fragment presenting 2 columns of 40 lines (tops of leaves trimmed away) and with marginal headings intact. Upper pastedown decorated with 2 2-line initials in blue with red penwork, one each on recto and verso; lower pastedown decorated with 1 2-line initial in red, with penwork whose color is obscured by a stain; rubrics in red, paragraph marks alternating between blue and red, capitals in text and marginal headings touched with red. Now in a 16th-century binding of a printed edition of Johannes Herolt's Liber Discipuli de eruditione Christifidelium (Rouen, 1508?).
