Notes:
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.
