I believe I found a latin copy here (and made a photocopy):

Scheler, Auguste, John, Alexander Neckam, and Adamus. 1867. Lexicographie
latine du XIIe et du XIIIe sieÌcle: trois traiteìs de Jean de Garlande,
Alexandre Neckam et Adam du Petit-Pont : publieìs avec les gloses
franc&#807;aises. Leipzig: F.A. Brockhaus.

Since it is out of copyright, I could make a pdf and share?
