Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS 479, leaves from a variety of works, mostly concerned with virtues and vices, previously part of a larger miscellany. Leaves from the same work are often not sequential and are not necessarily bound in order. Most of the volume consists of leaves from the early 14th-century Fiore di virtù (f. 1r-7r), including the end of the text, and a treatise on the cardinal virtues elsewhere titled Expositione sopra le quatro virtudi extracte del Maximo Valerio e d'altri decti de filosofi (f. 8v-16v), again including the end of the text. Bolognese physician Taddeo Alderotti's Libello per conservare sanita del corpo (a brief work on personal health and hygiene), an excerpt from Alderotti's translation of the Secretum secretorum (parole tracte de Regimine principum), and the beginning of the entry on the life of Christ from Robert Grosseteste's translation of the Suda lexicon are also present.
Written in Italy, probably Tuscany, after 1323.
