ii, 37, ix' ff.
195 × 155 mm
Print title: ‘ ΑΠΟΦΘΕΓΜΑΤΑ ΤΩΝ ΦΙΛΟΣΟΦΩΝ, seu Breviter et acute dicta philosophorum, maximam partem, ex Laertio Diogene collecta, in gratiam auditorii privati edidit Georgius Wallin’. The printed text is interfoliated. There are handwritten notes in the blank pages, but also in the margins and between the lines of the printed text.
After p. 37, the annotations in the interleaved pages are less dense, and more pages are left blank. pp. 59–60 have annotations that point to academic controversies in Sweden on ancient and Christian ethics. pp. 35, 38–39, 41–43, 46–47, 50–52, 54–56, 58, 61–73: blank pages.
+ 25 printed pages. The interfoliated leaves, including the flyleaves at both ends, are paginated separately in pencil: 1–74
Note:Bound interfoliated. Usually the printed double leaf is set in-between two blank double leaves, so that from pastedown to pastedown there are nine ternions (printed leaves reckoned in, although they are paginated separately). In the first ternion the outer singulion is used for text-hook endleaves. The last printed leaf is attached with paste to p. 57. The last leaf of last ternion not visible but perhaps present under RCI.
Signatures:None in the handwritten pages. The printed edition has signatures A–E on first recto of each text gathering.
Catchwords:Only in the printed edition; none in the commentary.
Martin Georg Wallenstråle, displaying a neat 18th-century hand writing with brown ink throughout.
Paper boards covered with floral brocade paper in bronze and orange-red. Bookblock, including added interfoliated leaves, sewn all-along on three flat tape supports made out of strips of parchment. The thread passes around the supports. Two paper labels on spine: the one at head with the handwritten numbers (uncertain reading), the one at tail is damaged but would have featured the present shelfmark.
