Description

The short work is made up of two sections: the Italian translation of a passage from Aristotle's Rhetoric, book 2, on friendship is followed by a thorough commentary which draws on Aristotelian sources as well as biblical ones. Some Greek passages are quoted from the Vettori edition (cf. f. 77r: 'Questo luogo emendato in uno antiquissimo essemplare Vittorio così legge'). The work is written by the same hand which copies the Lezione del coito in the same manuscript (cf. relevant record).
