Manuscript SummaryThe exact origin of this manuscript is unknown; the script and the language suggest that it was created in the Southern Alemannic region. The contents covering astrology, grafting trees, bleeding, advice regarding health, urology and recipes for the most part are taken from well-known sources and mostly correspond to Codex 102b of the Zentralbibliothek Zurich. The author probably did not come from an academic background, but must rather have been a medical practitioner. In this sense, the volume can be characterized as a “house book of folk medicine”, probably the oldest of its kind. It is also considered the oldest source for the so-called “iatromathematical corpus”.
