Sections from Book I of Avicenna's medical encyclopedia al-Qānūn fī al-ṭibb. Some leaves missing at the beginning; the first full chapter (fann 1, doctrina 3, chapter 1) is entitled: amzijat al-aʻḍāʼ and the manuscript ends near the beginning of fann 4, chapter 3. One leaf has 13th-century marginal transliterations into Hebrew of Arabic terms in the text (f. 50r-50v); other marginal notes in Arabic throughout. Worm damage, stains, and tears in margins throughout; two loose folia that belong to the beginning and end of the manuscript.
