This intellectual text is an incunabulum (English “incunable”), an early printed book published before the sixteenth century. It contains eight different works on topics ranging from rhetoric to astronomy, and is the only scientific medieval manuscript at UBC. Thanks to the colophon included at the end, we know exactly where and when it was produced: Dionysius Bertochus published it at his workshop in Modena on May 15, 1500.
