Supplementary information 

The text in part 13, pp. 545-7 is known.  See J. Ellies Du Pin, Jo. Gersonii opera omnia (Antwerp, 1706), iii, 597-600.  3 MSS are known, as well as two or three German incunabula.  See Jean Gerson, Oeuvres complètes de Gerson, Vol.1, introduction, texte et notes par Mgr Glorieux (Paris, 1960), pp. 72, 75, no. 15, 32, 32a.  The ascription to Gerson is almost certainly spurious.
