Material: Parchment Dimensions: Height: 390 mm Width: 285 mm Pages: 64 leaves
Senions and quinions. Partly with framed catchwords at the edges.
The front cover and signature thereon are missing. According to Manuscripta medievalia they should be similar to Erfurt, , Phil. natur. 6.
Text is set in two columns. We have line numbering from 5 to 5 with arabic numbers, written in the middle between the two columns. We have many pages without script at the end of the fascicles, suggesting that these were written separately.
Text is written by two hands. The first hand is an irregular current, the second hand a small, firm minuscule with Italian style.
Title: Red numbers as headings at the top of the page. Initial: Alternating red and blue initials with simple ornations. Rubrication: Many rubrics, mostly at the bottom and in black. In the area of the second hand, these were written by the first hand.
Many corrections and marginal notes by multiple contemporary and later hands.
Place of Origin: Northern Italy (?) Date of Origin: 13th - 14th century
Wooden binding with red leather cover; the front cover is missing.
In parts, parchment and ink are decidedly Italian. On the back side flyleaf, despite being erased, we can read: "Istud volumen pertinet ad fratrem Hermannum ...".

Intentio nostra in scientia naturali est satisfacere ...
... dimittant secundum quod placuerit eis. [Rubr.:] Expl. lib. phis. per fr. Albertum Theutonicum de ord. fr. Predicatorum compositus.
Rubricated, we have: "Incipit lib. phis. sui [!] auditus phisici; tractatus primus de prelibacione ante scienciam."

In tractatu hoc intendimus perscrutari de rebus ex quibus ...
