West or southwest France (probably Aquitaine) : mid-11th century.
Archive/Manuscript — 1 leaf, 41 x 29 cm, in print box
Contains text of II Samuel 24: 9-25 (end) and beginning of I Kings 1:1-3. Incipit: "Dedit ergo Ioab numerum descriptionis populi regi..." Explicit: "...et calefaciat dominum nostrum regem. Quaesierunt igitur" There are some textual variations, for example "mortui sunt ex populo a Dan usque ad Bersabee sexaginta [instead of the canonical septuaginta] millia virorum" in II Samuel 24:15.
The text begins with calligraphic letters "KL", some textual additions in several different hands, as well as 19th century notes on the text in red ink. Among the feast days for January two obits have been inserted by a contemporary hand. The first states, following the obit symbol, that Nicholas the parish priest ("plebanus") left a legacy of ten solidi under a pledge/pawn. The second indicates that another Nicholas, the treasurer ("sacellarius") and his legal wife made a bequest to the parish priest under pledge/pawn. [from dealer description]
The pages contain the end of the entries P and the opening of the entries Q. Comparison with the 1971 reprint of the Mainz 1460-edition shows that there are a large number of textual disagreements between this manuscript and the printed edition; but other manuscripts also vary considerably from it...

The words discussed are underlined in red. Among the ones on the recto are propinquus and a number of terms derived from prope, in column 2 we have among others prosaice and various words derived from protos and from pseudo. The verso begins with Psallo and the P entries conclude with ptisanarium. The Q entries begin with Quatuor, and the last entry: quadriiugis. [dealer description]
