GID: 2_5
Designation: Ms Middleburg 1627-28 (Beeckman)
Description: These diagrams show that Descartes had a profound logarithmic understanding of pitch and interval size at the end of 1618, if it is assumed that the manuscript copy made for Beeckman is accurate. The original of the Compendium musicae is lost. The Middleburg Ms is the oldest extant copy.
