On the fly-leaf is this title, apparently in William Hunter's handwriting: "An Account of Celsus's operation for the Stone." Folio.
This MS. seems to be in a different hand from the previous one, but the matter is, for the most part, identical, except that the second MS. has an introduction, which the other wants. There are, also, additions and Latin notes in a third hand.
