Medieval Medical Recipes

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This composite manuscript consists of two 14th-century volumes of medical works. The presence of a list of the contents of both volumes, written by the hand of physician Roger Marchall (fl. 1436-1477), shows that the two portions were bound together by this time.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The parchment flyleaves at the beginning have been taken from two other manuscripts. The first comes from a 15th-century English account book. The next two comprise a bifolium, including an empty leaf to which the aforementioned table of contents was added, and the opening of a 14th-century copy of <i>De miseria condicionis humanae</i> by Cardinal Lotario dei Segni, later Pope Innocent III.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Clarck Drieshen<br /> Project Cataloguer<br /> Cambridge University Library</p>
