Books III (al-Amrāḍ al-juzʼīyah, diseases arranged by part of the body), IV (al-Amrāḍ al latī la takhaṣ bi-ʻuḍwīn bi-ʻaynih, diseases not specific to particular organs), and V (al-Adwiyah al-murakkabah, compound drugs, ointments, and electuaries) of Avicenna's medical encyclopedia. Extensive marginal notes on the first pages of the manuscript (f. 1v-3r), with frequent brief marginal notes in the rest of the manuscript. A somewhat later table of contents, arranged in a grid, has been added at the front of the volume (f. iii recto-xvii recto).
