'Catalogue Plantarum quibus utuntur medici', in alphabetical order, with references to the following leaves, which contain a hortus siccus, specimens of each plant being pasted in, with its name written beneath. This appears to be by dr. William Howlet, and is a companion to nos. 27839-41, but there does not seem to be any evidence that this volume belonged to dr. Rawlinson.
