Small 15th-century collection of advice and prescriptions for the plague, likely abridged from other manuscript sources. The recommendations address diet, exertion, avoiding public gatherings, and bloodletting. The text of this manuscript is related to that of Paris, BNF lat. 7138, ff. 109-110 in order, vocabulary (except for the use in this manuscript of the term impedimia for plague, rather than the more common epidimia), and references to 14th-century Montpellier physician Joannes Jacobi (f. 3r, 4v).
