Summary:
Alchemical work. In two separate sections, ff. 105r-152r and ff. 165r-167r.
This appears to be an excerpt from a work by Geber, though the Zacour-Hirsch Catalogue does not attribute it to Geber or anyone else.
Notes:
Title from explicit on f. 152r and from Zacour-Hirsch Catalogue.
Heading on f. 105r: In dialogo primo Damogorgonis et Gebri dicitur. The Zacour-Hirsch Catalogue indicates that "Damogorgonis" is a misspelling for "Demogorgonis."
Heading on f. 165r: In principio dialogi Demogorgonis et Gebri.
Incipit and explicit: (f. 105r) Geber quamvis nostrum sulphur ... (f. 167r) auro ex aurum appellatur.
