Note
  • l. 63b: ... Explicit commentum tractatus [s]phæræ Ioannis de Sacrobu[s]to nuperrime com / po[s]itum per egregium Sacræ Theologiæ doctorem magi[s]trum Ga[s]parinũ / Borro Venetum regularis ob[s]eruantiæ Sacri ordinis [s]eruorũ Sãctæ Mariæ. /
  • Roman type; 31-41 lines. With initials and signature marks; without catchwords and foliation.
  • Signatures: a-g⁸, h¹⁰.
  • Text interspersed throughout commentary.
  • Probably printed for Octavianus Scotus or hsi heirs, not before 1494 and possibly after 1500. The type resembles that of Bonetus Locatellus and of Bartholomaeus de Zanis, both of whom printed for Scotus at times. The date 1494 occurs in the book (l. 23b: ... finis [s]it i[s]tius capituli & [s]uae expo[s]itionis ... / ... per me magi[s]trum Ga[s]parinum Borro uenetũ prio- / rem conuentus Venetiarum in. Mcccclxxxxiiii. die. xix. [s]eptembris ... ).
  • The diagrams, except for the printed legends, are the same as those of the edition of the Sacro Bosco text printed bo Locatellus for Scotus at Venice in 1490, and are apparently from the blocks cut by Hieronymus de Sanctis for his 1488 edition of the text.
