In Catalan, decorated manuscript on paper, dimensions 290 x 204 mm, 24 folios, complete, unidentified watermark, horizontal catchword, written in a formal cursive gothic bookhand in two columns of thirty-two lines, openings of each section in angular capitals with some ascenders, two blue initials (7-line and 2-line), some rubrics with calligraphic penstrokes. BINDING: CONTEMPORARY LIMP PARCHMENT ENVELOPE with flap and leather ties. TEXT: the present volume contains texts from the Ars Medicinae used for the study of medicine in medieval universities in a Catalan translation, including a synthesis of essential texts by Galen. Only four copies of this translation survive, the other three in insitutions; this one is unrecorded, and there is no modern edition.
