Abstract:
Chemical manuscript with instructions for preparing several hundred substances, both pharmaceutical and alchemical. Entries for a few preparations include references to earlier authorities such as Paracelsus, Ruland, and Glauber. The entries in an alphabetical index in two columns at the end of the volume appear to be in Towneley's hand and to cover the whole volume, but page numbers were added later, both to the manuscript and to the index, only through 194.
