Research Remarks

Published Description

Printed at Florence in 1500 by Johann Emericus de Spira for Lucantonio di Guinta of Florence(publisher). It is of a Gothic type. It has 240 leaves. It's imperfect due to the fact that it lacks leaves 179-214(containing the Regulas S. Baslii) and the blank 229. In our copy, leaves 237-240 are bound in between folio 178 and folio 215.
