It contains 180 chapters dealing with astrology of Hippocrates, alchemy, the essential rules of good health, and a text on the quintessence and the four elements which control the four humours of the human body. The complete text is illustrated with 35 emblematic woodcuts (E. Cockx-Indestege, Postincunabula and their publishers in the Low Countries, 1978, pp. 110-1).
