These volumes represent the most comprehensive study of the Egyptian medical papyri.

"A full hieroglypic transcription of the most important medical papyri is to found in volume V. Paragraphs are arranged according to the parts of the body in which disease occurs and not sequentially as the papyrus was written. Thus sections of different papyri appear together, particularly for parallel passages. Any section of a particular papyrus may be found by reference to the concordance at the back of Volume V;  this also indicates page number for the corresponding German translation in Vol. IV.1. The commentary is in volume IV.2. Egyptian-German vocabulary for names of drugs is in volume VI, while all other Egyptian words are treated in volumes VII.1 and VII.2, which include citations for the more important appearances of the words in the various medical texts. The system is inevitably cumbersome to use, but the wealth of information is incomparable and unlikely to be surpassed in the foreseeable future" (Nunn, Ancient Egyptian medicine (1996) p. 25).
