Dot Porter, Curator, Digital Research Services at the University of Pennsylvania Library, offers a video orientation to Penn Library’s LJS 25,  Aristotle’s Metaphysics and Nicomachean ethics, written in Italy ca. 1275-1299, in Latin.

It contains Aristotle’s Metaphysics and Nicomachean ethics, in the Latin translations by the Dominican William of Moerbeke from the Greek, followed by the first page of the Oeconomica, a work commonly attributed to Aristotle, in the Latin translation known as the translatio Durandi, attributed to Durand of Auvergne.
