Summary

This manuscript contains a number of Latin texts. English Glosses: Names of Herbs and Medical Texts are added across the different parts of the manuscript, giving names of herbs, diseases and parts of the body, and glossing herb-recipes. Manuscript not localised, but Ker notes that it 'formed a single volume with a later medical manuscript of English provenance, now Dresden MS. C. 309' (1957, p. 143).
