Fructus itineris
ad Septentrionales

De naturlium mixtu-
ris et operationibus
in humani corporis affectibus
in septentrione cons(?)uetis
my translation effort:

Fruit (herbs) travel
to the North

The natural recipes
and operations (treatments?)
In the human body, effects
in the common North

During those days writers wanted to prove that herbs and fruits from the North are as good as Southern herbs and treatments (from Arabia/Africa).
