Copy is part of a Sammelband probably reflecting the curriculum of an early modern gymnasium or university.

Edited with commentary by Johannes Honorius Crispus (ca. 1450-1504) of Leipzig, about whom very little seems to be known. The preface dedicates the work from Honorius to "his disciple" Cristoforo Ursino of Krakow, who is again addressed in a rather heartfelt post-script on the final leaf.

Last two pages contain a poetic 'Exhortatio' by the Italian Humanist Ludovico Pittorio.

Copy has numerous manuscript annotations in an unknown hand or hands.
Ownership inscription on title page of Mathias Lusorius or Lusorinus; further ownership inscription on final leaf dated 1536.
