Scientific notes written by Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz, probably in Germany. The notes concern the secretion and separation of bodily fluids in animals and are closely related to a letter written by Leibniz in September 1715 to the Venetian mathematician and physician Pietro Antonio Michelotti on these subjects, which appeared as an appendix to a work published by Michelotti in 1721. The leaf is written in 51 lines, recto only, on the left half of the page, with numerous corrections, revisions, and additions, both interlinear and on the right half of the page.
