<p style='text-align: justify;'>This medical manuscript consists of six independent parts: <ul><li>Part 1 (pp. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(3);return false;'>[i]-[vi]</a> and pp. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(425);return false;'>[vii]-[x]</a>)</li><li>Part 2 (pp. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(9);return false;'>1-172</a>)</li><li>Part 3 (pp. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(183);return false;'>173-210</a>, <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(225);return false;'>213-226</a>, <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(365);return false;'>353-354</a>)</li><li>Part 4 (pp. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(223);return false;'>211-212</a>)</li><li>Part 5 (pp. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(239);return false;'>227-242</a></li><li>Part 6 (pp. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(255);return false;'>243-352</a>, <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(367);return false;'>355-412</a>)</li></ul> Although the six parts were produced separately in England, they were probably joined together at a relatively early stage. This is suggested by the recurrence of the name and monogram of a sixteenth-century owner (Francis Rolleston) in different parts of the manuscript. Parts 1 and 4 both both have connections with Darley Abbey in Derbyshire, suggesting that the manuscript may have been brought together in whole or in part at this monastery. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Clarck Drieshen<br /> Project Cataloguer<br /> Cambridge University Library</p>
