Evidenciae contra Durandum I-IV, Stegmüller, Rep. Sent. 191. Kaeppeli, SOPMA 923, citing this manuscript. Each distinctio and article divided into 4 sections denoted by the letters A-D for purposes of reference; the letters are not used in the subject index, which refers rather to the distinctio and article. Carefully corrected throughout; full marginal gloss in the hand of the writer on f. 1 only; thereafter sporadically.
Paper (several crowns of the type of Briquet, Couronne 4758, Namur 1463 and sim. var. Luxembourg, Metz and 2 incunabula printed in Lübeck; and of Piccard, Kronen I, 278, Erbach 1460-66), ff. 98; 398 × 280 (290 × 178) mm. 1-128 138(-2 through 8, +1 at the end). 2 columns of 62-67 lines, frame ruled in lead. Written in a poorly formed littera currens; the beginning words of each section in a somewhat more formal book hand. Opening initial, 16-line, parted red and blue with short tendrils; remaining book and secondary initials, 6-line, either parted red and blue, or red only. Running headlines; foliated in early form arabic numerals circled in red. Bound, s. XVex, in German stamped calf over heavy bevelled wooden boards, sewn on 7 bands; on front and back cover, perpendicular fillets form an outer border of small rosettes on either side of an upright leaf, alternating with large rosettes; in the central panel, repeated vine-like tooling whose resulting ogives enclose a thistle plant; remains of 2 fore edge clasps, back to front; 8 corner pieces; 4 bosses on the back, now missing; pattern of holes on front cover not clear; holes from the nails of a chain hasp on the upper edge of the back cover; spine missing and in poor condition overall. The same binding on RB 54171-72 (see below in this description), RB 102369 (separate description), and RB 104671 (see below in this description). Written at least in part at Paderborn between 1470 (?) and 1492 by Henricus Dazeborch of the Dominican house in Wartburg. Henricus also copied 7 leaves bound before Peter Lombard, Sententiarum Libri IV (Basle: Nicolaus Kesler, 1489), Hain 10196 and Thomas Aquinas, Scripta ad Hannibaldum (Basle: Nicolaus Kesler, 1492), Copinger 579, bound together as Huntington Library RB 54171-72. Henricus’ material contains mnemonic and study devices on the Sentences: 1. Res tres mens genuit essencia velle potestas/ Esse coevus amor uterque prius genitus dant…[also in Frankfurt, Stadts- und Universitätsbibliothek, MS Barth. 99, f. 364], signed “Et finit quartus liber sententiarum metrice per me hinricum dazeborch ordinis predicatorum Anno domini Mo cccc 91o in Paderborn pro tunc terminarius ibidem”; 2. Aut fruimur rebus cunctis aut utimur ipsis/ B<?> lege domini trinum necnon probat unum…[Walther, Initia 1878], signed “Finit hec Sententiarum metrice <?> 5a feria hora vesperarum per me fratrem hinricum dazeborch ordinis predicatorum Terminarius in Paderborn Anno domini Mo cccco 91”; 3. Cum difficultas verbalis multum impediat animum a speculatione veritatis…[Franciscus de Mayronis, De usu terminorum; Stegmüller, Rep. Sent. 1342, 1 and G. E. Mohan, “Initia Operum Franciscalium,” Franciscan Studies ser. 2, vol. 35 (1975) 75], signed “Explicit tractatus Brevis et utilis de terminis theoycalibus anno et cetera 90 Sabbato post festum beati dominici patris nostri per me fratrem hinricum dazeborch.” Possibly also in the hand of Henricus Dazeborch, although unsigned, are 3 manuscript leaves containing a questio of Henry of Gorichem (Stegmüller, Rep. Sent. 322) on the Sentences bound before Henry of Gorichem, Quaestiones in S. Thomam [Esslingen: Conrad Fyner, not after 1475], Hain 7806, Huntington Library RB 104671. Another printed book with manuscript material by Henricus Dazeborch is known through the bound Rosenbach typescript of Phillipps incunabula (in Rare Book Department files). In 1923 A. S. W. Rosenbach offered to Henry Huntington a copy of Johannes Herolt, Sermones discipuli super Epistolas dominicales [Cologne: Conrad Winters, de Homborch, ca. 1478], Copinger 2936, which contains a manuscript table copied by Henricus Dazeborch and dated 1481. The volume was returned or disposed of as duplicate (of RB 103500) at an unknown date; present location unknown. A Henricus de Dosburch is listed on the flyleaf of Berlin, Deutsche Staatsbibliothek, MS lat. 544 (th. fol. 145); that manuscript dated Leipzig, 1464; no medieval provenance given. In RB 104537, on the second leaf of the printed book, the initials of Leander van Ess (1772-1847) in pale red ink. Sold by him to Sir Thomas Phillips. Identified as n. 210 in the Catalogus Incunabulorum of former van Ess books in the Phillipps collection, although the upper part of the spine (the normal location for this number) is missing. In ink on f. i and on a square printed label on the lower spine, the number “29.” N. 62 in the bound Rosenbach typescript in Rare Book Department files; this number in pencil on f. i. The Phillipps incunabula acquired by Henry E. Huntington through A. S. W. Rosenbach in 1923.
