The Spanish scholar Diego Hurtado de Mendoza possessed the second volume of Aristotle’s editio Erasmiana, printed in Basel by Johann Bebel (1531; Real Biblioteca del Monasterio de El Escorial, Escor. 25.III.11). This printed book contains some Greek variants and Latin notes added in the margins by Hurtado de Mendoza, principally on the text of Eth. Nic. I and Polit. I-II. Three other contemporary Greek hands appear in the margins of this book at a various extent; one of them can be tentatively attributed to Arnoldus Arlenius. The content of Hurtado’s notes reveals an attention to some of the principal Aristotelian subjects and a particular interest in the more traditional Latin exegesis (Cicero, Thomas of Aquinas).
