Latin, with chart of Greek letters and diphthongs (f. 11r)


Manuscript contents probably written in Leipzig or Erfurt, in the late 15th century, with the annotations to the printed work after its publication in 1507 (Zacour-Hirsch).
ca. 1475-1507
Leipzig or Erfurt?


Hybrid collection of school texts, including the Grecismus Cornutus, a treatise in Latin verse on Greek grammar and words similar to the Grecismus attributed to John of Garland, with numerous interlinear notes and perhaps metrical divisions (f. 12r-15v); a table of Greek letters and information on Greek diphthongs (f. 11r); and a heavily annotated printed edition of Rodolphus Agricola's Historia periucunda sanctissime matris Anne (Leipzig: Thanner, 1507; f. 1r-10r), with both interlinear and marginal notes. The title Grecismus Cornutus may refer to the 1st-century classical rhetorician and teacher Lucius Annaeus Cornutus.



15 leaves : 207 x 153 mm. bound to 214 x 163 mm
