Two scholastic commentaries on Aristotle: the first on De generatione et corruptione; the latter on De anima. In between is a two-page work on the soul, apparently unconnected to either book, written in a different hand. The author of the two major works appears to be a proponent of John Duns Scotus. The title page includes two abbreviations, "C. D.F.R.M.D.C.C." and "B. L.N.D.F.C.M.," as well as a dedication: "Ad usus fratris Rodulphi a Carpo ordinis minorum observantium almae provinciae Bononiae" (f. 1r).
