Excerpt from Transactions of the Cambridge Philological Society, 1894-1899, Vol. 4
Bound up with this manuscript is another, originally of 29 leaves, of the Latin Epistles of Petrarch, in the handwriting of the same scribe. The first 16 leaves are missing, and in the Africa o... f Petrarch the writing stops abruptly one third down the right hand column of the last page (reverse) with the line Te quoque moderator maxime regni'. The copy, so far as I can from internal considerations only, does not appear to be of much value; but I may men tion, for the benefit of any students of Petrarch's Latin poems that there may be, that it arranges the poems in an unusual order, as has been noted by the compiler of the catalogue of the Holkham 11288. The well-known Renaissance scholar William Roscoe.
