Notes
  • This specimen is one leaf of an otherwise lost edition of the Ars minor. The 20-line pages are set in Brandis's Gothic type, 160 mm to 20 lines. According to Bruce McKittrick, "This leaf preserves the text of Schwenke's Cap. 29 lines 6-28 (recto) and lines 29-46 (verso). This sheet was offered in L. Rosenthal's Katalog 100 as no. 527 (purchased privately according to GW). Probably used as binding reinforcement, the verso of this leaf has some stains and smudges (clean 8 cm. split at base neatly with no loss), blank margins frayed."
  • In clamshell box with fragments of three other editions of the Ars minor.
