On a half sheet of note-paper attached to i, 4 verso is a table of contents in Dr. Wm. Hunter's hand: Inter alia | Metra de Regimine sanitatis. | Regimen tempore Pestilentie. | Aristoteles ad Alexandrum. Tractatus de Pulsu. | in fine finit de Pulsu. | Tractatus de Judicio Urinæ | In fine Explicit tractatus de judicio urinæ | translatus per Frerum Album | I think it is | Medicina Physica | In fine Explicit tractatus de Medicina phisice artis translatus | de barbai'ca [for barbarica] lingua | Medicina Mortis et Vite; Ex Ipocrate | et Galieno, ut videtur | Cyrurgica | Medicin Divitum ypocratis mgri eximii ysaac | In fine Explicit hoc... | Indicium mortis et Vite | Medicina pauperum. | Medicina metrica | Antidotarius viri eximii d. y.

1, 1 recto contains an index to No. 9, under which in Dr. Hunter's hand: Index Medicinæ Physicæ Incipit Tracta- | tus ipse fol 14to. The verso contains in a contemporary hand two prayers under this heading: Discretus medicus hanc orationem dicat antequam alicui det medicinam. | [space for initial D] eus qui mirabile hominem creasti. et mirabilius reformasti. et dedisti | medicinam ad restaurandam sanitatem humanorum corporum . da bene | dictionem de celis super hoc antydoto elementario (?) et recrea | ut in quorum corpore intrauerit sanitatem mentis et corporis accipere | mereat per christum. | [space for initial B] enedic domine cibos et potus istos sicut benedixisti quinque panes in deserto. | ut omnes ex eis gustantes accipiant tam animae quam corporis sanitatem per christum.
1, 2 recto contains an index to the works contained in the first 63 folios.
ff. 5 and 6 are loose.
On f. 11 recto are four contemporary medical receipts.
On f. 13 verso are three Low German medical receipts in a contemporary hand, which occurs also throughout the volume in marginalia, especially ff. 64-81, and on f. 62 verso and 63 recto, ff. 82 recto-83 verso, 87 recto-88 verso. Another Low German hand (contemporary) is found on f. 27 verso. Between ff. 41 and 42 is inserted a smaller leaf covered with (contemporary) additions.
On f. 46 recto is a long medical receipt (14 lines) in a contemporary hand headed thus: ... tis Argyrophora.
From the conclusion of 23, it would appear that the contents of f. 56 verso headed respectively: 'oleum benedictum' (rubric) and 'virtutes aque vive metrice' (rubric) belong to the treatise immediately following (21).
Under the 'Explicit' on f. 104 verso (the conclusion of which had been so carefully erased that it is now hardly legible in spite of treatment) is an alphabet (contemporary) in which the vowels are replaced by the letter p with barred shafts, thus for 'a' p has one transverse stroke, for 'e' two, and so on. It ends: p (with five strokes) x y z & 3 9. (Query, a cypher?). The last three characters represent contractions for "et", "uncia", and "us".
On f. 88 recto: Expertum per Albertum (see above).
