"This is a peaceful 'obrezilla' and of pleasure, art manual as well as being very useful for many excellent gentlemen; and approved and passed by many male doctors'."

The book contains information on so many things: "to take away tooth ache," "to that of the heads, faces, painted on paper," sneezing, to see whether a woman is pregnant with a boy or girl (there are over 59 different situations).

This is a curious collection of popular and comic recipes that were translated by the Italian Juan Ramón de Transmiera and signed here as Juan Agüero de Transmiera.

The Spanish text of this edition was printed in Valencia and is a copy of an edition form Salamanca, whose whereabouts now are unknown.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
