The corpus is divided into five volumes dealing with different aspects of the human body and its cure: the first kitab talks generally about medical principles, anatomy and the effects of the environment on human health; the second volume lists alphabetically several medicines and simple drugs, with their properties and side-effects; the third one is divided into twenty-two funun (sections) and concerns specific pathology and diseases of various parts of the body, from head to toe; the fourth is on more general diseases which affect the whole body (for example fevers, leprosy and fractures), and the last kitab (which the present manuscript represents) deals with medical recipes and therapeutic drugs.
An ownership note reads that this copy was reviewed and edited by Ibn Abi-bollah Jalal al-Din Muhammed between Muharram and Safar 1023 AH/February and March 1614 AD.
