Paul Moore (Iter Psellianum, p. 326, see internet resources) quotes a communication from the Biblioteca Nazionale Universitaria that was presumably made in response to his enquiries about the Psellos texts in this ms: “il ms. B.VI.45 (già b.I.38, Pasini n. 367) consta oggi di 65+53 carte. Le prime 65 sono l’edizione a stampa del De Anima di Aristotele (Basileae, per Thomam Platternum, 1538); le altre 53 carte, manoscritte, sono delle note sparse che si riferiscono probabilmente al testo a stampa. Le carte contenenti le opere da Lei cercata [viz. Pasini cat. item III et item IV] devono oggi essere considerate perse.”  

In other words: there seems be no Psellos in this ms in its current state due to the fire of February, 1904.

According to Moore, the ms. did once contain PHI.167 and MISC.35. (See Iter Psellianum, p. 742)

Present on folios 1r-65v are the Swiss edition of Aristotle with handwritten notes and (the foliation begins again) on folios 1r-53r, the handwritten text seems to refer mostly to Aristotle’s work. The edges of the manuscript are badly burnt.
