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.
1 volume 181 ff. 8vo. 161/2 x 91/2 cm. Original vellum binding, with two leather ties, defective. There is a pagination 1-113, with 6 unnumbered leaves preceding, to the first part which is by an anonymous compiler. Lober has foliated the whole volume 1-181, which includes the two first leaves, before the 6 ll. mentioned above.
