On i, 2 verso in Dr. Wm. Hunter's handwriting: Magistri Iohannis Arderow | Opusculum de judiciis urinarum | per colores et contenta (a) | A collection of Receipts or Cures for various disorders. English. | in the inscription is di regis illustriss | principis Henrici quarti, so that we | may presume this writer lived about | the year 1400.
A late XVII. or early XVIII. Cent. hand has written in the lower margin of fol. 1 recto: The Latin verses in this Book are | those of Egidius de Urinis (W3) [a monogram for (?) W B]. The same hand writes, on the verso of f. 44, in the lower margin: "The end of the Treatise of Urines."
Aegidius Corboliensis, or Gilles de Corbeil, descended from the Counts of Corbeil, was a member of the Benedictine Order, and devoted himself to the study of medicine at Salerno.
He is said to have taught medicine at that school, and afterwards, from the end of the XII. to the beginning of the XIII. Cent., to have lived in Paris as the Major-domo and Physician of Philip Augustus.
The monogram . ihc . occurs at the top of ff. 1 recto and 62 verso (in the latter case with . archippus . (left), and . ypocrates . (right), all in red ink.
