Description:
Script: Artt. 1-4 are copied by one hand writing Gothica Cursiva Libraria marked by striking hairlines at r and final t. Quotations are clumsily written in a deviating form of Northern Gothica Textualis. Ascenders at the top line are often lengthened and decorated. Art. 5 is copied in a more rapid form of Gothica Cursiva Libraria, possibly by the same hand.
Abstract:
Manuscript on paper containing 1) Commentarius in sequentiam “Ave preclara maris stella”, falsely attributed to Caesarius de Heisterbach O. Cist.(c. 1180-c. 1240). 2) Commentarius in sequentiam “Benedictio Trine Unitati”. 3) Addition to art. 2, dealing with the Hebrew alphabet. 4) Humorous note explaining why the eater of cheese (obviously a most unhealthy food) will never thrust a wine-goblet from his hood (?), why he never will be bitten by a dog and why a thief will never enter his house.
