Description

This manuscript version of Isaac Israeli’s treatise on urine is part of a larger compilation of texts which was probably used by a German medical student (the binding is typical of German craftsmanship and materials). The lack of embellishment or illumination, as well as the small hand and margins, suggest that this codex was meant for use by a student.

The text of De Urinis begins just under the circle and the words ‘S[an]ta maria’: “In the name of Christ begins the book of urine translated by Constantine the African into the Latin language from the Arabic …”
