Porter, Dot, "Facsimile of LJS 25, Liber metaphisice ; Liber ethicorum" (2015). Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies (SIMS): EBooks. 166.
Aristotle's Metaphysics and Nicomachean ethics, in the Latin translations by the Dominican William of Moerbeke from the Greek, followed by the first page of the Oeconomica, a work commonly attributed to Aristotle, in the Latin translation known as the translatio Durandi, attributed to Durand of Auvergne. The Aristotle texts are preceded by a table of contents for the Nicomachean ethics. The outer bifolium of the first gathering (before f. 1 and after f. 10), containing the beginning of the Metaphysics, a gathering after f. 22, and two leaves after f. 72 are all lacking. Many early marginal notes, some affected by cropping, and occasional manicules.
