This is the manuscript of Shifii Al-Asqaam by Shifii who died in AH 1159 (AD 1746). The manuscript is written with red and green ink in the Turkish language.

It consists of three chapters. The first explains physical diseases such as trembling and convulsion, how to protect oneself against them, and how to cure them. The author explains each disease separately, protection against it, how one is exposed, and how to cure it, whether by herbs or drugs.

The book contains a beautiful collection of flower illustrations, such as carnation and red anemone. It also has illustrations of fruits with a simple explanation for each flower.
For example, the author mentions that the Indian basil helps with the flowing of the urine and cures urinary system inflammations.
