The manuscript contains shorthand notes from a number of Fordyce's lecture series split up throughout the volume.

Shorthand notes of lectures on the practice of physic comprising lectures 1-92 can be found on the recto of ff.1-244 and upside down on the verso of ff.195-242. Longhand versions of Fordyce's practice of physic lectures can be found in MMM/2/3/1/1, MMM/2/3/1/2 & MMM/2/3/1/3.

Notes found upside down on the verso of ff.4-192 appear to be taken from materia medica lectures, although this cannot be said for certain of all of them.

Shorthand notes of lectures on the materia medica comprising lectures 79-90 can be found on the recto of ff.329-359 and upside down on the verso of ff.353-359.

On both the recto and verso of ff.360-369 can be found a list of medicines by classification in longhand.
