Level of Description: Item
Part of MS Hunter 1-658
Content: Aristotelis, Analytica.
Incerti Avctoris, Fragmentvm Vocabvlarii Latino-Gallici.
On i, 2 verso is a printed Sale Catalogue slip: Aristotelis Analytica Priora et Posteriora. A very ancient MS. on vel- | lum, probably wrote in the 11th century. There are bound up with it | 4 leaves of a Dictionary French and Latin, in which the changes that | the French language has undergone may be observed, as for example, | estrif, lis, rixa, contentio, controversia, jurgium. This word is not in | use now in the French language, tho' the English retain it from the | Normans.
On 1, 1 recto in a XVI. Cent. hand: Joannes Carpentinus Decanus et Canonicus | Abbatisuille.
The verso of 6, 7. is covered with twenty-six (closely written and contracted) lines of notes, followed by various scribblings, among which is the name: guillemus de courci, under which is: Memoriale Michaelis de sancto Bernhardo | apparatus Johannis monachi. Another name apparently is: henrici domini breknure...
These writings seem all in XV. Cent. hands.
The fragment shows by the presence of English words "riveling," "wederoue," "runner," etc., that it was composed in England. See P. Meyer, Documents Manuscrits... Paris, 1871, pp. 120-126.
