Catalogue Note

This set of the works of Duns Scotus seems to be deliberately lacking the final sections of each part, beyond the table for each part (indeed, ICCU records many copies without these sections). The collation of this copy is as follows:

volume 1: a-x8; aa-mm8 nn2; volume II: aaa-iii8 kk2; 4a-4x8 4y6; [Quaestiones] A-G8 H-I6 (last leaf blank). There is only one colophon, on H6, for the Quaestiones, which is complete.
