Beinecke MS 962
Northwestern Germany, [between 1400 and 1500]
Latin commentaries on two sequences.
ff. 32 : paper.
Material is open for research.
Manuscript on paper containing 1) Commentarius in sequentiam “Ave preclara maris stella”,
falsely attributed to Caesarius de Heisterbach O. Cist.(c. 1180-c. 1240). 2) Commentarius
in sequentiam “Benedictio Trine Unitati”. 3) Addition to art. 2, dealing with the
Hebrew alphabet. 4) Humorous note explaining why the eater of cheese (obviously a
most unhealthy food) will never thrust a wine-goblet from his hood (?), why he never
will be bitten by a dog and why a thief will never enter his house.
Purchased on the Edwin J. Beinecke Fund.
Script: Artt. 1-4 are copied by one hand writing Gothica Cursiva Libraria marked by
striking hairlines at r and final t. Quotations are clumsily written in a deviating
form of Northern Gothica Textualis. Ascenders at the top line are often lengthened
and decorated. Art. 5 is copied in a more rapid form of Gothica Cursiva Libraria,
possibly by the same hand.
