‘<Q>uidam princeps nomine Albuguafe in libro suo quem scientiarum electionem et verborum nominavit… (1v) <B>onum scire fuit quod sapientibus non deviantibus visum est cum partem speculationis a parte operationis diviserunt, que sunt due sapientie partes — et abreviationem arrogantiam et collaudationem. Tunc iam sequitur et honestum est ut ponamus hic finem libro etc. Expleta est dictio 13a libri Ptholomei et cum ea completur liber Almagesti de disciplinalibus. Deo gratias.’
