Script: Humanistic
Language: Latin
Folio Number: ff. 77v-78r
Original Year/Month/Day: 1444
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Opening with end of text and scribe's signature
Notes: This opening contains the end of On the first Punic War by Leonardo Bruni (ca. 1370-1444). Bruni was a humanist, an historian, and also the Chancellor of Florence from 1410-1411 and 1427-1444, the year that he died. This manuscript was written in that same year, a fact that is known from the note written by the scribe wrote at the end of the book that gives his name and the date of completion, which can be seen here at the top of the right-hand page, "Laus Deo per milanum burrum 1444" (Praise be to God [written] by Milano Borro 1444).
