About this work


Collection of medical receipts, the second half written mainly by Lober: in German. His script and spelling are very illiterate, as shown in an inscription on the second leaf in German and dog-latin beginning 'Ista liber', and apparently making a threat to punch anyone who steals it.


mid-18th century
