A student's copybook, mostly containing excerpts from Latin authors such as Strabo, Quintilian, Virgil, and Cicero, but also including some astrological material and a collection of Virgil excerpts that supposedly foreshadow the Old and New Testaments. Jacobus Dinetus dedicated it to his father Johannes. The writer has added numerous marginal notes.
