Summary expansion
Steinitz includes this manuscript in Group E, "Manuscripts made after the printed edition;" she points out that "A great number of the 17th and 18th century handwritten copies of Leonardo's Treatise on Painting were made from the first printed editions by and for artists and art lovers who were not able to acquire the printed book." Belt MS 33 begins with Chapter I, but includes only selected chapters, ending with Chapter CCCLXV on the perspective of the horizon. Apparently the transcriber did not understand Leonardo's instructions here, and instead of copying the text of the chapter, simply wrote "Pas fort intelligible." In other chapters, the transcriber did not always copy word for word but used her own abbreviations and simplified wording to capture Leonardo's thought
