Summary

This manuscript is a fifteenth-century copy of Johannes de Rupescissa's De consideratione quintae essentiae rerum omnium. It was written in Italy in Gothic rotunda script in a single column on parchment with alternating red and blue initials and paragraph marks. The first leaf of the preface is missing and the following four leaves (fols. 1-4) are badly rubbed, affecting text. Rupescissa's work is divided into two books, with the second comprising twenty numbered remedies. The final leaves of the volume contain a selection from Michele Savonarola's De arte conficiendi aquam vitae (fols. 50r-51r) and an unattributed remedy for catarrh titled Remedium notabile contra passionem Catharri (fol. 51r-51v). Corrections contemporary to the text are in the margins, as are notes by a sixteenth- or seventeenth-century reader marking correspondences to a printed edition of the text and sections of the manuscript not present in that printed edition.
