A course of Metaphysics in Latin, on the lines of Aristotle and the Schoolmen: beg. 'An Metaphysica consideret rerum omnium quiditates in particulari. Praemissis alibi illis quae de scientiarum diuisione et vnitate diximus': a few supplementary chapters are at fol. 78.

The fly-leaves are apparently two leaves of an early 13th cent. MS. of the poem De vetula, once attributed to Ovid, giving the preface of Leo protonotary and of Ovid, the latter beginning 'Queritur unde mihi quod opus processerit istud'. See MS. Bodl. 610.
