This chapter discusses a Middle English treatise on the seven liberal arts, written around 1475. The hand of the manuscript belongs to the scribe of two copies each of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and Thomas Hoccleve's Regiment of Princes, as well as of minor works of Chaucer and John Lydgate. The treatise is included with the material on astronomy and devotes the most space over to geometry. Based primarily on Robert Grosseteste's De artibus liberalibus, the treatise also deals with grammar and rhetoric.
