Bodleianus Baroccianus 87.  (Madan Summary Catalogue no. 87 = old Bodley no. 1243.)  Paper, mid-15th century, 353 folios.  Works by and about Aristotle, including Psellus on his Categories (TLG 2702.010).  Includes a drawing of John Argyropoulos (for whom see Sathas in the Bibliography and Online Resources).

For detailed list of contents, see Coxe's entry in Bibliography. This is untouched by Barbour & Wilson, except at §7 (fols. 35sqq.), where they note that the picture of Argyropoulos is "engraved as frontispiece to Hody's De Graecis Illustribus, 1742", though we do not see him there, either in the front of the book nor of his chapter (Liber II, Caput 2; see Bibliography and Online Resources).

Fol. 1  Introduction to Aristotle's Organon.

Fol. 2  Excerpts from his Physica.

Fols. 3v-5r  Psellus' Paraphrase of the Categories (Iter Psellianum no. 730 (PHI.7, pp. 234sq.)).

Fols. 5r-13v  More of Psellus on the Categories: Περὶ τῶν πέντε φωνῶν· Ὁμώνυμα· Διατί δέκα κατηγορίαι· Διαίρεσις τῆς φιλοσοφίας (all in Iter Psellianum no. 735 (PHI.12. pp. 237sq.)).

Iter Psellianum no. 735 is available in the Google Books preview (see Online Resources), but no. 730 is not.
