Title:
[Alchemical-pharmaceutical notebook] [manuscript].
Abstract:
Contains remedies, experiments and extracts on "poudre universelle" (f. 12v); "misterio filosofico della segreta preparatione della pietra, e nella materia del sale" (f. 35v); "nitro detonato e conservato" (f. 64v); etc. Also includes more extensive sections toward the end: "Opus Photum a Friderico Gualdi descriptum" (f. 81r-92r); "La Maniè€re de faire le sel et soulphre d'antimoine" (f. 93r-95r); "Metodo occultissima all'universal medicina" (f. 107r-109v); etc. Also includes a second set of notes beginning from the opposite end of the manuscript, among them a "Sonetto di Federigo Gualdi." This section begins imperfectly, since there is a stub after f. 133 and some text appears to be lost. Folios 66v-94v and 105r-106v are blank. There are stubs after f. 114, 129 and 133.
