"These volumes, in addition to providing us with fine critical editions of the various Latin versions of the medieval Aristotelian corpus, contain a wealth of information about many aspects of medieval intellectual history." (R. Forrai, in: Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 2011.02.11)
Gudrun Vuillemin-Diem (1931-2018)
This volume contains two closely related versions of the Metaphysics, both partially preserved (books I-IV.4). The first version, called Translatio Vetustissima, is ascribed to James of Venice (1), whereas the second, called Translatio Vetus, is presented as being a revision of the former translation (1a). The volume also contains some scholia which accompany James of Venice's text; at least some of them must go back to marginal notes in the manuscript used by the translator.
