The library of the Societat Castellonenca de Cultura (Castelló de la Plana) keeps a Catalan manuscript on menescalia (veterinary medicine) virtually unknown to the specialists. Here we provide a diplomatic description, a presentation of its content, and particularly a first linguistic analysis.

The manuscript is currently in the process of being edited.
