Content A massive lemmatic commentary on Books III-IV of the Quadripartitum on the basis of the Greek text and Plato of Tivoli’s Latin translation (A.2.1), which are both given in full. The commentary is preceded by Books I-II in both Greek and Camerarius’s Latin translation (A.2.9) (ed. Lyon 1583, vol. I, sig. 49-108).

Origin This commentary was published in the first volume of the second edition of Giuntini’s Speculum astrologiae (1581, 1583). The first edition, published in 1573, does not contain Ptolemy’s text. Giuntini studied the Quadripartitum with Giuliano Ristori in Pisa in 1548.
