Manuscript on paper of Aristoteles, Oeconomica, Latin translation by Leonardo Bruni (Leonardus Aretinus), made in 1420-1421. The manuscript is excessively trimmed. The main scribe (artt. 1-2) writes Gothica Hybrida (often close to Gothica Semitextualis) Libraria under strong Humanistic influence, visible in the use of Roman Capitals and straight s in final position. Art. 3 is copied in Gothica Hybrida Currens. Collection of Georg Tannstetter. Bookplate of Yale University Library, The David Wagstaff Memorial Fund. Watermark: bird (Briquet 12127?). Space and partly guide-letters for a few initials were provided but the decoration is missing. In the space for the first initial (f. 1r) a coat of arms (silver, with a bend gules) was afterwards drawn. Binding: Twentieth-century. Half brown leather over pasteboard, the covers covered with brown paper. On the spine the gold-tooled title ARISTOTLE . OECONOMICA . MS. 15TH CENT...
