The contents of the manuscript are varied, but include fairly extensive sections devoted to alchemical recipes. Other topics represented include medicine, such as treating diseases of the eye and bloodletting; recipes of a domestic, household nature, including various recipes for inks, how to erase things from parchment, and how to get rid of vermin; cosmetic recipes related to caring for the hair and face; agricultural recipes, including a lengthy section of wine; and recipes for treating disease in animals.
