Ah.. I have the HP3458 schematics, that's where my circuit comes from.
Maybe I should have made that more clear.

I got this so far. I understand that U110-U112 form an integrator
with U111 and U112 added to increase SR and GBW. U110 has been
choosen for its low I_bias and V_os TC and provides that to the
overall integrato (ie compensates V_os drifft of U111 and U112).
Q110 acts as a fast unity gain buffer to isolate U111/U112 from
the summing point. U140 acts as a simple amplifier. I included
it in my simulations just because it feeds back into the integrator
But I don't understand why the integrator has been done that way.
U111 seems redundant when adding U112. It feels like I am missing a key
point in what changes in SR and GBW when connecting two opamps.
It is upon moral qualities that a society is ultimately founded. All
the prosperity and technological sophistication in the world is of no
use without that foundation.
