VMs: Another ms from the Villa Mondragone lot?

Back in July ('04), when we were discussing Trotula, Larry found what seemed like a copy of 'Trotula Minor' at the Huntington Library’s Digital Scriptorium.

While looking closer at Larry’s HM 64 (ASTROLOGICAL and MEDICAL COMPILATION, England, s. XVex) and HM 65 (PTOLEMY, ALMAGEST, Southern France, 1279) catalog entry in that same collection, this came up about HM 65:

“Probably belonged to the Jesuit College in Rome, some of whose books passed to the Vatican Library in 1912. At the same time approximately 27 of their manuscripts were sold to the bookdealer W. Voynich, including HM 65.”
