Fol. 2 Secreta Hypocratis. / Dixit Hypocras quando in die sexto... 2v ...Cui sudor assel / larum foetit lepram prognoscat. // EXPLICIVNT SECRETA HYPOCR / ATIS 3 Directorium Iuuenum in arte me / dicine nondum in practica exercitatorum. / [S]Ciendum quod pondera quedam sunt mul / tum in usum... 29v ...27mo ingressus in clisteriis. // Telos [sic] In profesto diui Michi / elis Anno 1509. // Simon Pernstich. 30 Short Latin-German glossary of herbs. There is a transcript of the 'Secreta', taken from the printed version found with Averrhoes 'De venenis' [Bologna. c. 1497-1500], in Sudhoff's 'Archiv' Vol. IX, pp. 104-106. The 'Directorium' mainly deals with pharmacy, and may possibly be a student's notes of an introductory lecture to a course on the practice of medicine.
