London, Wellcome Library MS 5262 is a late medieval vernacular medical recipe collection. The manuscript was copied in the early fifteenth century, in the area of Worcestershire. It is rather small in size, and still in its original fifteenth-century binding. The manuscript contains medical recipes which tell its reader how to cure common diseases ranging from tooth aches to stomach aches or headaches....

MS 5262 contains several marks of ownership, all of which date to the post-medieval period. ‘H. Henri Dingley’ added his name in the ruling on top of folio 12r. Palmer identifies him as ‘Henry Dyneley/Dineley or Dingley, d. 1589, of Charlton, Worcs’. The fact that Dingley’s Worcestershire origin fits in with the manuscript’s place of production, Worcestershire, suggests that MS 5262 circulated in the Worcestershire area till at least the end of the sixteenth century. 7

According to one researcher, said manuscript was a copy of 'Fuchs (Leonard) De Historia Herbarum'.
