Earliest extant copy of the prose version of Gautier's encyclopedic treatise discussing cosmology, astronomy, meteorology, geography, natural science, and religion. This work is followed by 3 others: the Elucidarius, a dogmatic explanation of Catholic doctrine in the form of a dialogue between a schoolmaster and pupil; the Moralites (des philosophes); and a brief unidentified obstetrical text, perhaps based on De secretis mulierum, attributed to Albertus Magnus. Many of the headings in the first work, which are generally just the incipits of the sections that follow, have been crossed out, with a correction added in the margin. The signatures of the gatherings and one early folio number (77, f. 4r) suggest that this manuscript is a piece of a larger manuscript.
