Sieben Bücher Anatomie des Galen: ... zum ersten Male veröffentlicht nach den Handschriften einer arabischen Übersetzung des 9. Jahrh. n. Chr. / ins Deutsche Übertragen und Kommentiert von Max Simon. 2 vols.

Leipzig: J. C. Hinrichs, 1906.

First printed edition of the final six and one-half books (the second half of book 9, and books 10-15) of Galen's De anatomicis administrationibus, which were lost in the Greek original. In 1714 the Bodleian Library acquired a 9th century Arabic version of the complete work in 15 books, and in 1860 the British Museum received another. From these manuscripts Max Simon published an Arabic text (vol. 1) with German translation (vol. 2). English translation of Simon’s German text: Galen on anatomical procedures. The later books. A translation by the late W.L.H. Duckworth. Edited [and compared with the Arabic] by M. C. Lyons and B. Travers, Cambridge: Univ. Press, 1962.
