The "first" part includes a long series of mixed medicinal and culinary recipes, followed by a second sequence (with an index) of culinary recipes only. The "second" part mostly consists of medicinal recipes in 3 different hands (3 distinct series of recipes, one with an index written in the same hand as the index in "The First Part"), and one section of culinary recipes in a fourth hand. Each part concludes on facing pages with "ffinis Anno Domini 1687."
