Quaestiones medicinales (unfinished)
CCCC MS 516 contains an unfinished anonymous medical tract entitled Quaestiones medicinales. The manuscript, either German or Bohemian, dates to the fifteenth century and is part of the Elbing collection; a group of manuscripts which belonged to a Brigittine convent at Elbing (Elblag), near Gdansk. The collection was donated to Corpus Christi College by Richard Pernham (1583?-1628) or by his wife, Mary, whose signature is in many of the books. The book retains its contemporary binding.
