Tacuini sanitatis Elluchasem Elimithar Medici de Baldath, de sex rebus non naturalibus, earum naturis, operationibus, & rectificationibus, publico omnium usui, conseruandae sanitatis, recens exarati. Albengnefit De uirtutibus medicinarum, & ciborum. Iac. Alkindus De rerum gradibus.

Strasbourg, France: apud Ioannem Schottum librarium, 1531.

A Christian physician of Baghdad, Ibn Butlān traveled widely, eventually settling in Antioch. His treatise on hygiene and dietetics, Taqwām al-sihhah (The Almanac of Health) presented a guide to medical regimen in tabular form. It was probably the best-known of his treatises. The first edition in print includes 40 large woodcut borders by Hans Weiditz illustrating plants, animals, fruits, humors, diseases and cookery at the foot of page openings. Albengnefit (Ibn al-Wafid) was a pharmacist and physician of Toledo, where at one time he served as Vizier. He was noted for his rational methods of treatment, preferring to treat by diet, or, when necessary, by simple botanical remedies. This is one of his best known works, dealing with the properties of medicines and beverages. Al-Kindi’s work is on the preparation and dosage of medicines. In it he attempted to apply mathematics to pharmacology by quantifying the strength of drugs. Prioreschi called this the first attempt at serious quantification in medicine.[2] Al-Kindi also developed a system, based on the phases of the moon, that would allow a doctor to determine in advance the most critical days of a patient's illness.[3] De Gradibus was translated into Latin by Gerard of Cremona in the 12th century.

Die Corrosions-Anatomie und ihre Ergebnisse: mit 18 chromolithographirten Tafeln.

Vienna: Wilhelm Braumüller, 1873.

Hyrtl significantly enhanced the techniques of corrosion anatomy, a technique of preparing anatomical specimens invented by Frederik Ruysch. He built up a collection unsurpassed in Europe. In this work Hyrtl described a method that he invented in which he injected the blood supplies of the different organs, the adjacent parts being eaten away by acids, in order to show the finest ramifications. The technique of wax impregnation and later corrosion was also known to the Hunters. Digital facsimile from the Heidelberg University at this link

The fate of anatomical collections.

Farnham, Surrey, England: Ashgate, 2015.

A collective work, edited by Knoeff and Zwijenberg, which includes several chapters of great interest. Relevant to the history of John Hunter's museum see Andrew Cunningham, "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Or, what Richard Owen did to John Hunter's collection". Cunningham shows how Richard Owen (see No. 326), influenced by the new science of comparative anatomy developed by Cuvier in Cuvier's Leçons d’anatomie comparée (5 vols., 1800-05; No. 321) intentionally or unintentionally shaped Hunter's museum to fit the new paradigm.

The anatomist's instructor, and museum companion; being practical directions for the formation and subsequent management of anatomical museums.

Edinburgh: Adam and Charles Black, 1836.

"Dr Frederick Knox was the librarian of New Zealand's first public library. He emigrated from Scotland in July 1840 and within days of arriving in Port Nicholson became involved in establishing the country's first public library.

"The library lasted for just one year before winding up and handing over its contents to another organisation. But Knox continued to contribute to the cultural development of the country until his death in 1873....

"Records suggest that Knox did not practise as a medical practitioner in New Zealand until after he moved to the Hutt Valley, where he practised between 1851 and 1855. After this time he held various medical positions, including Resident Medical Officer to the Asylum (Karori) from 1855 to 1857, and Coroner at Porirua from 1861 to 1862. But on his death in August 1873 he was best remembered for his contribution as a scientist...." (https://nzhistory.govt.nz/people/frederick-knox)

Knox was the brother of Robert Knox, who became notorious as the client of resurrection men, Burke and Hare.

The history of the cholera in Exeter in 1832.

London: John Churchill & Exeter, England: Adam Holden, 1849.

Includes “Map of Exeter in 1832 Shewing the Localities Where the Deaths Caused by Pestilential Cholera Occurred in the Years 1832, 1833 & 1834.” This map used red horizontal bars to illustrate outbreaks in 1832, red diamonds (1833) and red dots (1834). The top map key numbered sites identified with the city’s response to the epidemic, such as places where contaminated clothes were burned and buried, convalescent homes, druggists, burying grounds, and soup kitchens. In the other legend box, the parishes of Exeter were listed by the percentage of their populations affected by the disease, and each was assigned an alphabetic letter on the map. For Shapter, the evidence in the map was irrefutable: cholera was most contagious in low-lying areas of dense habitation, near the river, where drainage was poor and waste and refuse accumulated—in others words, the disease was miasmatic.

Galen's psychological writings: Avoiding distress, Character traits, The diagnosis and treatment of the affections and errors peculiar to each person's soul, The capacites of the soul depend upon the mixtures of the body. Edited by P. N. Singer. Translated with introductions and notes by Vivian Nutton, Daniel Davies and P. N. Singer.

Cambridge, England: Cambridge University Press, 2013.

In 2005 a long lost treatise by Galen, entitled Περι αλυπιας (Avoiding distress), was discovered in the Monastery of the Vlatades (Moni Vlatadon) in Thessaloniki, central Macedonia, Greece. The manuscript, identified as Vlatadon 14, dates from the fifteenth century. In Peri ton idion biblio (De Libris propriis liberOn his Own Writings), Galen referred to Περι αλυπιας, but the last evidence of the text was preserved by the 13th century physician and writer Joseph ben Judah ibn Aknin, who paraphrased and/or translated extacts of it into Hebrew. Rediscovery of the complete text is considered one of the most spectacular finds ever in ancient literature.

Galen was motivated to write Περι αλυπιας in 192 CE after a large portion of his library, his supply of medicines and medical instruments, and wax molds for the casting of new instruments that he had invented, and other valuable items, were destroyed when a devastating fire burned the Temple of Peace (Forum of Vespasian) and nearby storehouses on the Via Sacra, the main street of ancient Rome, where his property was kept. Galen chose to keep his library there because the storehouse also held some of the imperial archives, and was kept under military guard. The fire that destroyed Galen's library also burned all the public libraries on the Palatine Hill.

Galen's Περι αλυπιας provides significant information on the use of the codex form of the book in the second century CE, on the general vulnerability of books and texts, and on the production, copying, dissemination and storage of information, including the operation of Rome's imperial public libraries and Galen's use of them. It also provides information on the "consolation genre" of writings in antiquity. For the 2013 edition Galen's Avoiding distress was edited and translated by Vivian Nutton.

One map showed the distribution of epidemic diseases. This was the first thematic atlas to include a disease map. Berghaus issued an enlarged second edition from 1849 to 1852.
