Le livre de l’art du traitement de Najm ad-Dyn Mahmoud: Texte, traduction, glossaires, précédés d’un essai sur la pharmacopée arabe par Pierre Paul Emile Guigues.

Beirut: chez l'Auteur, 1903.

Arabic text, with a French translation, of parts 4-5 of “Al-Kitab al-hawi fi ‘ilm al-tadawi” by Najm al-Din Mahmud. Najm al-Din Mahmud ibn Ilyas al-Shirazi was a Persian physician from Shiraz. His major composition was a large Arabic medical compendium, “Kitab al-Hawi fi ‘ilm al-tadawi” (The Comprehensive Book on the Art of Curing), whose title often caused confusion with the better-known “Kitab al-Hawi” written four centuries earlier by Rhazes.


Also published as a dissertation, dated 1902.
