What does "opusculo" mean? i found the word in a wikipedia article dealing with niccolo machiavelli:

Este último respondió contandole los aspectos toscos de la vida en el campo y hablando también de sus estudios, declara de haber compuesto un opúsculo intitulado "De principatibus".

A little etymology would be helpful too.

Thanks in advance for anything sent my way :)

    thank you nick and erasmo for the quick and helpful responses, and a second thank you for the warm welcome, erasmo. see you both around...

    opuscule is rarely used in english. i've never come across it before, neither in modern works nor in older ones--have you?

    but opus is very common.
