A Cat, In A Collection Of Medical And Herbal Texts
This manuscript lists herbs and other plants, animals, and birds, and their medicinal uses. Each is illustrated, but the representations were apparently copied from other manuscripts, rather than from life (it would usually be very difficult to identify the subjects of the miniatures without the aid of the text). This manuscript is related to several others, which seem to have been made in the north of England, perhaps Durham.
Cat dung could be used in the preparation of a variety of treatments, including one for hair loss (alopecia).
