About this work


De venenatis affectibus et eorum curatione. (38 ll.)

De febre quartana. (20 ll.)

The beginning of the work on Fever is inscribed 'De febre quartana annotata pulcherrima / Que ego Johannes franciscus Collus [sic] Murrensis D. Luce filius sub excellentissimo Domino Francisco Frigimelica diligentissime scripsi'.

There is a contemporary foliation 39-90, and this volume formed part of an original larger volume, which began with notes of the 'Discursus et consilia' by J. B. Montanus (MS.567) though this is written by a different hand. The vellum cover is also taken from the same 'Rotulus', mentioned above.

Produced in Padua.


c. 1535
