SUMMARY: This manuscript, which is of mediocre execution, is probably the product of a Parisian professional shop specializing in the writing of standard texts for university students. There are no traces of Pecia
markings, but these are in any case uncommon in copies of classical texts.Not located by Georges Lacombe in his Aristoteles latinus. Though the Nicomachean Ethics, a genuine work of Aristotle, is certainly not an
alchemical or occult work in any sense, it represents in the Melloncollection Aristotle's immense influence on the thought of Western Man fromthe Middle Ages, through the Renaissance, and beyond. Aristotle was
constantly referred to and quoted as the universal and undeniable authorityin both practical and speculative alchemies for centuries; and one cannot help thinking that he was particularly important to alchemists and early
scientists as an acceptable pagan authority.
