Co., gilt edges. - Written in Italy in the first quarter of the fifteenth century by a scribe of Milanese origin, Hieronimus, who signed his name on f. 126; the style of the initials may point to Florence as the place of execution. Belonged to Carlo Archinto of Milan (1669-1732) whose ex libris is on f. iii verso, formerly the pastedown when the book was in its green vellum Archinto binding; see J.

153. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01034
Description: - ff. 178 - Bound, s. XIX (?), in dark red velvet; marbled endpapers. - Written in Spain, possibly in Toledo or Seville since past bishops are listed only for these 2 cities. Letter dated Rouen 1562 (?), in poor French in the lower margin of f. 116, "A mon seieur Le Legat cardinal de ferralle Le Legat de franse. Je vous me recommende. . . . " De Ricci states, presumably on the binding, that the book is from a nineteenth century French collection. Acquired by Henry E. Huntington from Herschel V. Jones (1861-1928) of Minneapolis in February 1918. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H. Rouse et al., Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Huntington Library (San Marino, 1989). De Ricci, 88. J. Ruysschaert, Bibliothecae Apostolicae Vaticanae . . .

154. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01035
Description: - ff. 98 - Bound, s. XVI (?), in limp parchment with title on the spine in a decorative gothic hand, but considerably damaged: "509. Arist. L[ogi?]ca Decor__?___ __?___oli__?___ __?___s de animali-[bus] Manuscript"; fore edge ties missing. On the back flyleaf, offset of a strip print [Woodward del. Rowlandson f.] Borders for Rooms, Plate 2, London, March 25 1799 at Ackerman's Gallery, 101 Strand. - Written in southern Italy for a member of the family of Charles I of Anjou, King of Sicily and Naples, 1266-85; the remaining coat of arms on f. 1 is of Anjou: azure, semy of fleur-de-lys or, differenced with a label of 5 points gules (Rietstap, vol. 1, pl. 52); Mr. Van de Put, according to De Ricci, has suggested that the 2 erased coats of arms are Jerusalem (Charles I was crowned King of Jerusalem in 1278) and Hungary ancient (Charles II married Mary of Hungary in 1270); both erased coats of arms bear traces of tinctures in gules and or. Belonged to Pier Leoni (d. 1492), physician to Lorenzo de' Medici. The inventory of Leoni's books is published in L. Dorez, "Recherches sur la bibliothèque de Pier Leoni, médecin de Laurent de Médicis," Revue des Bibliothèques 7 (1987) 81-106, where this manuscript may be identified with item 8, "Aristoteles de natura animalium." The single title, corresponding to HM 1035 as it stands today, suggests that the book had been bound in its more complete state (cf. the multiple titles on the spine, which must have referred to the text[s] on the missing 130 folios at the beginning of the book) and had then been dismembered before 1582, when the inventory of Leoni's library was compiled. See J. Ruysschaert, "Nouvelles recherches au sujet de la bibliothèque de Pier Leoni, médecin de Laurent le Magnifique," Bulletin de la classe des lettres et des sciences morales et politiques de l'Académie royale de Belgique, ser. 5, 46 (1960) 37-65, and his introduction to Bibliothecae Apostolicae Vaticanae . . . Codices 11414-11709 (Vatican 1959) p. vii, mentioning HM 1034 (evidently as typographical error for HM 1035): a number of Leoni books were in the library of the Jesuit College in Rome until ca. 1912, when approximately 27 of their manuscripts were sold to the bookdealer W. Voynich, possibly including HM 1035. On the front pastedown in modern pencil: J991, J992; on f. 1, in modern pencil: 992, a8665a. Acquired by Henry E. Huntington in 1918 from G. D. Smith. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H. Rouse et al., Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Huntington Library (San Marino, 1989). De Ricci, 82.

155. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01036
Description: - ff. 207 - Bound by J. Leighton in brown morocco; gilt edges. - Written in Italy, perhaps in Florence as suggested by the style of the initials, in the first half of the fifteenth century. Belonged to William Morris (1834-96); his bookplate on the front pastedown and cataloguing notes in the hand of Sir Sydney Cockerell tipped in the front of the volume. Morris' manuscripts sold at his death to Richard Bennett; this manuscript among those re-sold by Bennett, Sotheby's, 5 December 1898 n. 1194 to Heppinstal. Purchased by Henry E. Huntington from the Ross C. Winans collection through G. D. Smith in January 1918. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

156. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01037
Description: - ff. 47 - Bound in a limp parchment wrapper, made up of 2 scraps, one a legal document, s. XIV, the other mercantile, s. XV, both apparently from the same area: the place names mentioned are Brescia, Gavardo, Fostaga, and Villanova (the last 3 are in the province of Brescia). The contemporary paper liners have been unglued from the covers, and show lists of receipts and debts dealing with wheat, rye and spelt, one of which is dated 1446; linguistic forms indicate the Veneto. - Written in Italy perhaps in the northeast according to linguistic forms in the text. Probably in the province of Brescia at the time of its binding. It later belonged to the collector of Lincolniana, Oliver R. Barrett (1873-1950); sale of a "notable American collector" by the American Art Association, 20 December 1920, n. 547 to J. Adams for Henry E. Huntington. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R.

157. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01038
Description: - ff. 203 - Bound by Lortic, s. XIX, in citron morocco with purple and green onlays; doublures of turquoise morocco, gold tooled in a branch pattern; gilt edges. - Written in Naples where Clemens Salernitanus is known to have worked: T. De Marinis, La Biblioteca napoletana dei Re d'Aragona (Milan 1947-52) 1:66 identified the hand of this scribe with a Clemente Genovesi da Salerno mentioned in a Neapolitan document of 1487, who copied a "Trattato di mascalcia," now lost. HM 1038 shares script, decoration and pocket-size format with several other manuscripts of classical texts, such as a Martial (formerly J. A. 3183, now belonging to B. S. Cron of Kew, England, Add. MS 7), an Ovid and a Virgil (Baltimore, Walters Art Museum, W. 385 and 400), a Florus (Vatican, Barb. lat. 7; signed), and a Tibullus and Virgil (Wolfenbüttel, Herzog-August Bibliothek 63.5 Aug. 8o; signed). This manuscript was apparently copied from the edition of Ovid printed by Hermann Liechtenstein in Vicenza, 1480 (Hain-Copinger 12141). Overall order is similar, in blocks: the printed text gives Heroides, the Sappho material, the Sabinus material, Amores, (here ff. 61-186v); Ars amatoria, De remedio amoris (here ff. 1-59v); Ibis, Fasti, De tristibus, Ex Ponto (not in this manuscript); Pulex, Philomena, Medicamina faciei, Nux, Ad Liviam (here ff. 187-203). De remedio amoris is divided into two books, both in the manuscript and in the 1480 edition. The 2 match in the presence or absence of supplemental material: two introductory couplets in the Heroides, the sections on Sappho and Sabinus, three responsory letters. They correspond in variant readings, in spellings (except for greater frequency of the diphthong ae in the printed text), and capitalization. The occasional incorrect initial in the manuscript (ff. 89, 168, 170, 180v) may be due to the fact that the initials were not printed in the 1480 edition, but left blank to be filled in by hand. This correspondence was first observed by M. D. Reeve. On ff. 1 and 141 of HM 1038, the arms of the original owner: quarterly 1 and 4, or three bars sable, 2 and 3 gules two bars and 9 martlets argent 3, 3, and 3. On f. 203 the erased inscription, s. XVI: Dono accepit Augustinus Amodeus a Domino Dominico Seglia. Later owned by Ambroise Firmin Didot (1790-1876); his sale, Paris, 9 June 1881, n. 7 to Techener; Baron François Florentin Achille Seillière (1813-73); his sales, Paris, 1890, n. 1221, and 1893, n. 146. Belonged to Robert Hoe: Bierstadt (1895) p. 18; Cat. (1909) pp. 152-53; his sale, Anderson, New York, 1911, pt. I, n. 2169 to G. D. Smith. Precise date of acquisition by Henry E. Huntington unknown. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H. Rouse et al., Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Huntington Library (San Marino, 1989). De Ricci, 83.

XV (?), visible through the pastedown. - Written in southern Italy, perhaps Naples, to judge from the style of the decoration; the presence of Onuphrius in the litany may also suggest a southern origin. The coat of arms in the lower border of f. 1 has been repainted and is now per fess, or and gules.
