The paper analyses some series of marginal notes which occur in twelve manuscripts containing Bracciolini’s translation of Diodorus Siculus’s historical work (books I-V), completed in 1449. A first group of eight manuscripts shows exactly the same set of 750 marginalia, while the other four manuscripts (group 2) have a slightly expanded version of those notes, all copied at the same time and by the same scribe as the text: this circumstance suggests that the twelve manuscripts – whose provenience is proved to have been either Rome or Florence – could be connected one to each other. This hypothesis, based on paratextual elements, is strengthened by textual evidences, which not olny demonstrate the mutual relationship between the twelve manuscripts considered, but also justify the existence of the two groups.

Abstract

The paper analyses some series of marginal notes which occur in twelve manuscripts containing Bracciolini’s translation of Diodorus Siculus’s historical work (books I-V), completed in 1449. A first group of eight manuscripts shows exactly the same set of 750 marginalia, while the other four manuscripts (group 2) have a slightly expanded version of those notes, all copied at the same time and by the same scribe as the text: this circumstance suggests that the twelve manuscripts – whose provenience is proved to have been either Rome or Florence – could be connected one to each other. This hypothesis, based on paratextual elements, is strengthened by textual evidences, which not olny demonstrate the mutual relationship between the twelve manuscripts considered, but also justify the existence of the two groups.
