Summary

Leaf from a 14th-century copy of a mid-13th-century French treatise on diet and health, supposedly written at the request of Beatrice of Provence. The text on the leaf is from Book 2 of the Régime du corps, which addresses care for various parts of the body: it runs from the end of the chapter on the eyes, through chapters on the ears and teeth and gums, to the beginning of the chapter on the face. References to Aristotle and Avicenna appear in the manuscript. Written in a rounded Gothic script in 50 long lines, ruled in brown ink, with rubrics and a 2-line initial in blue or red at the beginning of each chapter. The long line layout for this manuscript is unusual; the text usually appears in 2 columns. The leaf was later used as a binding for another volume.
