Brevis tractatus de meteoris [manuscript] / Stephanus Quercetanus. Quaestiones in tres libros De anima Aristotelis Stagiritae / Jacobus Zati. De meteor ac De anima
Two Aristotelian works by two Dominican professors of philosophy of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Pisa, recorded by the same scribe. The first is a treatise on meteors by Stefano Quercetano; the second is a commentary on Aristotle's De anima by Giacomo Zati. The opening of the first work suggests it was a supplement to other lectures on Aristotle's De generatione et corruptione. In this three-chapter work, the second and third chapters, although titled "Meteors which occur in water" and "Meteors which occur on earth," do not mention meteors. The water chapter covers the names of different-sized bodies of water, tides, and salinity. The earth chapter covers subterranean fires, earthquakes, metals, and fossils. The second work, on the soul, discusses the nature of the soul according to Aristotle's divisions into vegetative, sensitive, and intellective. Stain from a finding tab remains on f. 44.
