Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.4359

Scope and Contents

Contains: 198 folios: (fo. 4) notes taken from lectures on logic; (fo. 47) notes on Aristotle, De somno et vigile; (fo. 51) notes on Aristotle, De generatione et corruptione; (fo. 83) notes on Aristotle, De anima; (fo. 168) notes on metaphysics; (fo. 191) index. The notes are written neatly and clearly divided with numbered headings into treatises and sections. The writer was an Englishman, as appears from the dates, 'Aprill the 17th' and 'May 18' (fos 145v and 168 respectively). The lecture course ended on the 15th June, and appears to have been given at the Jesuit College at Salamanca, Spain.
