  • M6357 Aristotle, De Anima, book 3, with extensive gloss, in Latin, manuscript on parchment [almost certainly England (probably Oxford), thirteenth century] 

Two half-leaves recovered from reuse in a sixteenth-century English binding, collectively containing a single column of 26 lines of main text in a tiny university hand, nearly every line with interlinear gloss and full glossed margins, numerous other scribbles from reuse in later binding, trimmed at edges with small natural flaw in parchment and some stains (two from modern rusty paperclips), overall fair and legible condition, each cutting approximately 105 by 160mm.; with small blue paper handwritten sale description listing price as “£3/10/”

The script here is almost certainly English, and by the end of the Middle Ages the book was clearly in England: with repeated ex libri( pertaining to later book the fragments were reused on) of a sixteenth-century owner named “Smythe”. From the Fall of the Roman Empire, knowledge of most of Aristotle’s works was lost in the West, and only recovered from the mid-twelfth century onwards. The following decades saw the rapid translation of his key surviving works into Latin. De Anima was written c. 350 BC., and attempts a discussion of psychology based on the biology of the bodies of all living things.
