Aristotle's De Animalibus has been a very important source of zoological knowledge both for the ancient Greeks and for the medieval Arabs and Europeans. The work has twice been translated into Latin, once direct from the Greek by William of Moerbeke and once by Michael Scot from an existing Arabic translation. Of these, Scot's translation is the oldest. The De Animalibus is composed of three sections: 'History of Animals' (10 books), 'Parts of Animals' (4 books) and 'Generation of Animals' (5 books). The present volume contains the first critical edition of Scot's translation of the second section. The edition of the third section is already available (1992), the first section is in preparation.

In the years 1961-1972 Marie-Thérèse d'Alverny published in Archives d'Histoire Doctrinale et Littéraire du Moyen Age 11 fascicles of a study of the codicological tradition of the Latin Avicenna. In these she identifies and describes more than 150 Latin manuscripts of the Avicennan corpus preserved in European libraries, thus laying the foundation for work later published in the Avicenna Latinus series. These fascicles are photomechanically reprinted here, together with hitherto unpublished material concerning another 30 manuscripts compiled from Professor d'Alverny's papers by Simone van Riet and Pierre Jodogne. The compilers have also added a list of corrigenda as well as an index of manuscripts discussed and an index of names and works.
Liber primus naturalium
Series:  Avicenna Latinus
Editors: van Riet and Verbeke
This is the first volume of a new trilogy, which will deal with that part of the Shifā’ which concerns physics and natural philosophy, in Latin the Liber primus naturalium.
One part of the Liber primus naturalium, which was translated into Latin towards the end of the 12th century, gave rise to the Tractatus primus de causis et principiis naturalium and to the Tractatus secundus de motu et consimilibus, whilst another part translated towards the end of the 13th century produced a Tractatus tertius de his quae habent naturalia ex hoc quod habent quantitatem.
The Tractatus primus de causis et principiis naturalium, now published, contains like all the other volumes in the series, a doctrinal introduction by Professor G. Verbeke, and an historical and critical apparatus, all prepared by Simone van Riet.
The Arabic-Latin and Latin-Arabic lexica will be published separately in a single volume, after publication of the three Tractatus has been completed.
