Summary

Books 17 and 18 of Priscian's Institutiones grammaticae, also known as De constructione, a guide to syntax. The Institutiones are a systematic examination and explanation of Latin grammar and were a staple of the medieval study of Latin. The text contains extensive interlinear and marginal annotations in Latin in a secretary script. Text at the end of the manuscript (f. 53v), seemingly not by Priscian, discusses Adonic meter.
