17th-century Italian translation of De rerum natura by Alessandro Marchetti, a generally anti-Aristotelian teacher of philosophy and mathematics at Pisa. Publication of this translation was forbidden in Italy, so it was still being copied by hand in the 18th century. The translation breaks off early in Book 4 (4.265, f. 146v, with a dangling catchword), followed by a final page of text from slightly later in Book 4 (4.384-394, f. 147v).
