Abstract:
Manuscript on paper in two parts. 1) Walter Burley (Gualterus Burlaeus, 1275-after 1344), Expositio in Artem veterem Porphyrii et Aristotelis (Venice, Johannes Herbort, 1481). 2) Walter (Gualterus) de Wervia (also called de Wernia, de Warnia, de Vernia, born at Rijswijk in the Netherlands, d. after 1472), Expositio in Isagogen Porphyrii cum quaestionibus Iohannis Duns Scoti, written in the College de Bourgogne at Paris. Art. 2 copied by one hand in small Gothica Semihybrida Currens with many abbreviations. Lemmata, names of quoted authorities and terms marking the argumentation are written in large and bold but clumsy and fancy Northern Gothica Textualis Formata or Semihybrida Formata. Marginal notes. The acid ink has on many pages faded and damaged the paper and made reading difficult.
