[Sefer ha-Ḳanon] ... [etc.]; [manuscript].

Title:
[Sefer ha-Ḳanon] ... [etc.] [manuscript].
Abstract:
Hebrew translation of Avicenna's medical encyclopedia; its division into 4 books is customary for Hebrew translations, but it also has unusual additional sections on drugs, the liver and intestines, and heart diseases. Short medical works in Judeo-Arabic precede Avicenna's work, and a Judeo-Arabic commentary on Galen follows it; these were written by Saʻīd Danūkh, who also wrote marginal notes alongside the Avicenna.
