Summary expansion
When Scoto printed the text edited by the Augustinian Ambrosius de Padua, he provided the only scholarly version yet in print. In his prefatory note, dated Sept. 1521, two months after the date of imprint in colophon, Ambrosius tells the dedicatee, the famous philosopher and Aristotelian commentator Egidio da Viterbo, that the work suffered from the sloppiness of the printers whose printed texts were so confused that they could hardly be read. For this edition, he divided the work into chapters, added marginal notes to organize the argument of the text, and reorganized the text; He also provides a long 26-page analytical table of contents
