  • UC42.1: Aristotle [384–322 BC]
    L. Minio-Paluello in DSB 1. 267–81 (on tradition and influence). Indexing Aristotle's works presents difficulties at several levels. He wrote a great deal. The sources provide evidence at different periods for the Greek text, multiple Latin translations from Arabic and from Greek, groupings of individual works under familiar medieval titles, and a wide range of pseudonymous texts. The descriptions provided by the sources are often imprecise, especially as to which Latin translation was recorded. Since the sixteenth century scholarly interest has focused on the Greek text rather than on versions current in the middle ages. Only in recent decades has Aristoteles Latinus attempted to document the Latin versions current at different times, but its progress with editions has been slow. Recently Aristoteles Latinus Database (ALD) has provided complementary material. Since 1971 a separate series Aristoteles Semito-Latinus has aimed to edit translations from Arabic. Where neither is not available, one must have recourse either to major sixteenth-century printings of Latin (in cases where they print the medieval versions) or to the earliest printed editions that may themselves have been documented by our sources. The resulting index is inevitably uneven. Thanks to Pieter de Leemans for his advice.
    Libri naturales, a collection comprising Aristotle's Physica, De generatione et corruptione, De caelo, Meteora I–III, De plantis, and the pseudo-Aristotelian Liber de causis and De differentia spiritus et animae; in the late 13th cent. new translations from Greek were substituted for those from Arabic AL Codd. 1. 49–51 for analysis.
  • UC42.2: Aristotle [384–322 BC]
    Metaphysica I–IV 4, tr. James of Venice ed. G. Vuillemin-Diem, AL 25/1 (1970), 5–73. Other translations:– Translatio composita: ibid. 89–155. Translatio media (I–X, XII–XIV): ed. G. Vuillemin-Diem, AL 25/2 (1976), 7–275. Translatio noua (I–XIV complete), by William of Moerbeke: ed. G. Vuillemin-Diem, AL 25/3 (1995).
  • UC42.3: Averroes (Ibn Rushd) [1126–1198]
    Commentarium magnum on Aristotle's De anima, tr. Michael Scot pr. Aristotelis omnia quae extant opera, 11 vols. (Venice 1573–6), vol. 2; ed. F. S. Crawford, CCAA 6/1, Medieval Academy of America 59 (1953).
  • UC42.4a (`libri Senece xii'): L. Annaeus Seneca [4 BC–AD 65]
    Dialogi ed. L. D. Reynolds, OCT (1977). [The itemization of the Dialogues in a manuscript such as BA1.1613 is misleading; De otio (dial. 8) and Consolatio ad Polybium (dial. 11) were no doubt present but subsumed under the preceding dialogues, as in the extant copies, since the starts of both texts were already missing in the archetype.]
  • UC42.4b: M. Tullius Cicero [106–43 BC]
    De officiis ed. M. Winterbottom, OCT (1994).
  • UC42.5–6 (2 vols) = UC43.109: Ranulf Higden OSB [†1364]
    Polychronicon ed. C. Babington & J. R. Lumby, RS 41 (1865–86); J. Taylor, The Universal Chronicle of Ranulf Higden (Oxford 1966).
