Notes
Content : Kup article. Dictionary catalog. Library dossier.

Content : Most pages have two quarters devoted to pictures and two to text (4 to about 20 lines). A few pages are full text. No visible ruling.

Content : Paper

Content : 408 colored drawings of plants, trees, food, animals, and activities.

Content : Red and blue initials with opposing-color decoration. Placemarkers.

Content : Dated to ca. 1475 by notes in dossier; in a northern Italian dialect. Acc. to Kup, the direct ancestor of the illustration cycle in our ms. is the Latin Tacuinum Vienna ONB 2644 (from ca. 1385 for the Cerruti family; facsimile in bibliography).

Content: Compiled in Arabic by Ibn Butlan, late 11th c., deriving from Dioscorides. A Tacuinum ms. in Vienna with ownership note from 1472, very like this ms., is ascribed to Cadamosto (as translator?). Here, table of contents, ff. 1-2v.
