Binding Waste as Evidence for the Reconstruction of a Lost Aristotelian Manuscript
Keywords:Aristoteles Latinus, Parva naturalia, Avicenna, Thomas Aquinas
This note discusses the hypothetically reconstructed content of a fourteenth-century Latin manuscript of Aristotle's Parva naturalia, from which two bifolia survive as flyleaves in an incunable binding. The note argues that the lost manuscript contained a collection of Aristotelian treatises in combination with short texts by Avicenna and Thomas Aquinas, which had a limited circulation in German-speaking regions.
