Although copied by several scribes, this seems to be a compilation organized, corrected and expanded by a single person specialized in pharmacology and medicine and interested in natural history, encyclopedical knowledge and history, living in Central Europe. At the bottom of f. 87r is written by a contemporary hand "Andreas Dei gratia".
Copied by various scribes, writing Gothica Cursiva Libraria or Currens in various sizes, often very small; ff. 127r-143r, 7 are in a markedly different, larger form of Gothica Cursiva Libraria. There are countless corrections, notes and additions, probably by one rapid hand (the "compiler"), who added also cross-references using the numbering systems he had introduced after the various parts were assembled. At many places the paper is deteriorated by the acidity of the ink.
Original limp parchment binding: a bifolium from a German manuscript in Gothica Cursiva, worn and stained, lined with a German document on parchment in Gothica Cursiva Antiquior/Recentior. Leather spine stiffener with ornamental stitching.
Scanning employs modern foliation in pencel, upper recto.
