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. There is no index. The manuscript, which was written in 1755, is from the chapter of the noble secular canonesses of Schänis (fol. Br). Several recipes are later additions. The numerous blank pages indicate that it had been planned from the beginning to leave room for additional recipes. It is not known when the manuscript became part of the pharmacy of the former Capuchin Convent of Wattwil. 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.
