A supplementary commentary on Hermann Boerhaave's 1709 work Aphorismi de Cognoscendis et Curandis Morbis spread across three volumes. Whilst Boerhaave's student Gerard van Swieten (1700-1772) is most famous for writing a commentary on the Aphorisms the source and creator of these three manuscripts is not certain. As the title suggests the content is set out in a series of numbered aphorisms and further divided following the original structure laid down by Boerhaave.
The three volumes were allocated the reference F 109 viz. the Manchester Medical Society's 1890 library catalogue.
