About this work
Student's notes of lectures by Saxonia, Albertinus Bottoni, Aemilius Campolongo, and others. The author of the first lecture is identified as Saxonia by the reference on fol. 79v to his work 'De phoenigmis', published in 1591. The end of the first treatise is dated 1601: in the margin of fol. 115 is a note 'Tractatus habitus 1601'. Produced in Padua.
1 volume 384 ff. folio. 301/2 x 201/2 cm. Modern boards. The end is wanting: the first two leaves are damaged and repaired, margins and corners frayed.
The papers are available subject to the usual conditions of access to Archives and Manuscripts material, after the completion of a Reader's Undertaking.
