dc.description.abstract What may be the most reliable manuscript copy of the algebra of Master Dardi of Pisa has recently 1986 entered the public domain. This article describes the character and contents of the codex containing the copy. As such it complements an earlier article, “The Algebra of Master Dardi of Pisa,” by Warren Van Egmond (Historia Mathematica10 (1983), 399–421), which for the most part discusses the algebraic content of Dardi's text in other manuscripts. Attention here is paid to the author, scribe, and dating of the codex, mathematical expressions found therein, and the possibility that this codex was used by Mordecai Finzi for his translation of Dardi's algebra into Hebrew. en
