Manuscript SummaryCollection of recipes for preparing medicines. The form in which the recipes are presented ranges from a list of ingredients to more or less detailed texts including information about the preparation as well as the use of the medication. In the index, the recipes are divided into 10 chapters according to dosage form (pp. 456-479). At the end of each chapter there are several pages that have been left blank for additional recipes. The manuscript, which was created in 1739, is from the pharmacy of the former Capuchin Convent of Wattwil. It contains numerous 18th century additions in various hands. Since the dissolution of the Capuchin Convent St. Mary of the Angels of Wattwil in 2010, the manuscript, as part of the convent pharmacy, belongs to the Foundation Kloster Maria der Engel Wattwil.
