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).

On mortality and the causes of death according to occupations. IN: Transactions of the 15th International Congress on Hygiene Demography, pp. 336-339.

Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1912.

Bertillon, brother of Alphonse Bertillon, was Chief of Statistical Services for the city of Paris. His classification of diseases was based on the principle, adopted by Farr, of distinguishing between general diseases and those localized to a particular organ or anatomical site. This became the basis for the International Classification of the Causes of Sickness and Death. Digital facsimile from the Internet Archive at this link.

Catalogue of medical books, for the use of students attending lectures on the principles and practice of medicine; with an address to medical students, on the best method of prosecuting their studies.

Glasgow: Printed by James Heddewick & Co...., 1812.

This is the catalogue that Watt prepared of his own very carefully chosen medical library, and published for the use of his students. Because Watt chose the roughly 1000 books with great care the library is representative of the best information available to medical students in Scotland at the beginning of the 19th century. Reprinted in A bibliography of Robert Watt, M.D., author of the Bibliotheca Britannica. With a facsimile edition of his Catalogue of medical books and with a preliminary essay on his works: A contribution to eighteenth century medical history, by Francesco Cordasco (Detroit: Gale Research, 1968).

Bibliotheca Britannica, or, A general index to British and foreign literature. 4 vols.

Edinburgh: Archibald Constable & London: Longman, Hurst..., 1824.

This bio-bibliographical encyclopedia of English and foreign literature includes many articles on physicians from the ancient world up to Watt's time, and is an extraordinary achievement for one man. Typically the first sentence summarizes the author's life and death, followed by listing of writings more or less detailed. Watt's comments on specific editions and translations indicate a remarkable familiarity with the history of medical literature, and occasionally with the rarity of certain editions. The work has been estimated to include citations of more than 200,000 books, pamphlets and periodicals on the widest range of subjects. The first and second volumes contain an alphabetical listing of over 40,000 authors and their biographical details. Full length titles of works, date and place of publication, and information on translations and subsequent editions are provided for each author. The entries covering the earliest printed texts contain details of British and foreign printers. Volumes three and four provide an encyclopedic index to volumes one and two. The works are listed within 30,000 subject areas, in chronological order of publication. Subjects, authors and titles are fully cross-referenced using an ingenious indexing system. Robert Watt devoted 25 years of his life to the Bibliotheca's compilation. He studied classical languages and philosophy at Glasgow University. Later he became a student of anatomy and theology at Edinburgh, and practised as a physician. His interest in the history of medicine led him to begin compiling the Bibliotheca, which he extended to include works on law, history, language, philosophy, science, technology, travel and geography, and classical literature. Digital facsimile from the Hathi Trust at this link.

The social basis of health and healing in Africa. Edited by Steven Feierman and John M. Janzen.

Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1992.

The essays in this book concern disease, health and healing practices on the African continent. The contributors all emphasize the social conditions linked to ill health and the development of local healing traditions, from Morocco to South Africa and from the precolonial era to the present. The editors provide introductory overviews explaining why and how health and disease are related to historical, economic and political phenomena. Several chapters illustrate how the most basic facts of everday life encourage the spread of disease and shape the possibilities of survival. Others discuss a variety of healing practices: drums of affliction in Bantu-speaking societies, Muslim humoral medicine and bio-medicine as practiced in hospitals and dispensaries.

Index Hippocraticus Cui elaborando interfuerunt sodales Thesauri Linguae Graecae Hamburgensis. Edited by Joseph-Hans Kühn and Ulrich Fleischer.

Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 1989.

There have been several supplements, etc. "This index contains the entire vocabulary (with the exception of the article and a few particles) of the complete writings constituting the Corpus Hippocraticum. Quotations are in agreement with the edition by E. Littré, which still is the most important edition to date and has frequently been reprinted. Also incorporated were several texts not included in Littré’s edition and those lemmata from the glossaries of Erotianus and Galenus which are not preserved in the Hippocratic writings. But most importantly the material has been supplemented and corrected by means of a systematic evalution of the most recent critical editions and a re-examination of the original manuscripts. This approach combines two advantages: A standardized form of the quotations in accordance with Littré’s edition is coupled with abundant information on the tradition of all the writings, especially those which, until now, have not been republished in a critical edition. – With regard to the presentation of the material the index maintains a balance between a rigid concordance and a dictionary. Organizational principles of primary importance are the grammatical categories and varitations in the meanings of the words; additionally characteristic word combinations ans noteworthy dialectal forms are given particular attention while uncommon words are furnished with a Latin translation. The work is prefaced with an objective introduction in German containing, among other data, a complete list of the Hippocratic writings together with information on their tradition, their different editions, and where possible, their chronology."

Thesaurus Linguae Graecae: A digital library of Greek literature.

Irvine, CA: University of California, Irvine, 1972.

http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/tlg.php

"The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG®) is a Special Research Program at the University of California, Irvine. Founded in 1972 the TLG® represents the first effort in the Humanities to produce a large digital corpus of literary texts. Since its inception the project has collected and digitized most texts written in Greek from Homer (8 c. B.C.) to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453. Its goal is to create a comprehensive digital library of Greek literature from antiquity to the present era. TLG research activities combine the traditional methodologies of philological and literary study with the most advanced features of information technology....

"In spring 2001 the TLG-team developed its own search engine and made the corpus available online. Today the Online TLG contains more than 110 million words from over 10,000 works associated with 4,000 authors and is constantly updated and improved with new features and texts. The full corpus is available to more than 2,000 subscribing institutions and thousands of individuals in 58 countries worldwide. As of 2004, the project has been focusing its resources on web dissemination and is no longer licensing the corpus in CD ROM format.

"A subcorpus (Abridged TLG®) together with the extensive bibliographical database developed by the TLG (Canon of Greek Authors and Works) is open to the public. The Abridged version contains close to 1,000 works from 70 authors and uses the same search engine as the full Online TLG version. It provides access to the most important classical authors and a large number of patristic texts.

"As part of its efforts to lemmatize the Greek corpus, the TLG has digitized and made available a number of lexica, most notably the Liddell-Scott-Jones Greek-English lexicon, Cunliffe's Lexicon of Homeric Greek, Powell's Lexicon of Herodotus and more recently the Lexikon zur byzantinischen Gräzität(LBG)."

Plinii Secundi quae fertur una cum Gargilli Martialis medicina: Nunc primum edita a Valentino Rose.

Leipzig: B. G. Teubner, 1875.

Fragments of Martialis's work (probably called De hortis), which treated of the cultivation of trees and vegetables, and also of their medicinal properties, survived, chiefly in the body of and as an appendix to the Medicina Plinii (an anonymous 4th century handbook of medical recipes based upon Pliny the ElderNaturalis Historiae, xx–xxxii). Extant sections treat of apples, peaches, quinces, citrons, almonds, chestnuts, parsnips, and various other edibles, with an emphasis on the medical effects they have on the body (quoting Dioscorides sometimes). (Adapted from Wikipedia article on Quintus Gargilius Martialis.) Digital facsimile of the 1875 edition from Google Books at this link.

Medicinae Pliniae libri quinque finiunt foeliciter.

Rome: per magistrum Stephanum Guillireti Lothoringum, 1509.

The Medicina Plinii was an anonymous compilation of remedies dating to the early 4th century CE ."The excerptor, saying that he speaks from experience, offers the work as a compact resource for travelers in dealing with hucksters who sell worthless drugs at exorbitant prices or with know-nothings only interested in profit.[1] The material is presented in three books in the conventional order a capite ad calcem (“from head to toe,” in the equivalent English expression), the first dealing with treatments pertaining to the head and throat, the second the torso and lower extremities, and the third systemic ailments, skin diseases, and poisons. The book contains more than 1,100 pharmacological recipes, the vast majority of them from the Historia naturalis of Pliny the Elder. Other sources include Celsus, Scribonius Largus, and Dioscorides.[3] Materials may be botanical, animal-derived, or metallic; processes include decoctionemulsificationcalcination and fermentation. Preparations may be applied topically, or consumed. Magic, perhaps to be compared with faith healing,[7] was a regular feature of the manuals. Most of the recipes contain a limited number of ingredients, and in contrast to more expansive and thorough collections such as the De medicamentis liber of Marcellus Empiricus, precise measurements in drachmaedenarii or other units are specified for only a few formulations. Perhaps because Pliny's name was attached to it, the book enjoyed great popularity and influence. It was frequently copied during the Middle Ages, and was often used as a handbook in monastic infirmaries" (Wikipedia article on Medicina Plinii, quoted with a few minor changes, 1-2017).

The standard version of the text is Plinii secundi iunioris qui feruntur de medicina libri tres. Corpus Medicorum Latinorum 3 (Berlin, 1964) edited by Alf Önnerfors. A digital version of this text is available from Biblioteca digitale di testi latini tardoanchi at this link.

Basel: Conrad Waldkirch, 15891591.

First edition of Paracelsus's collected works. Though all the autographs of Paracelsus's writings were later lost, Huber, who was born shortly after Paracelsus's death, was able to collect a great number of autographs and early copies, so he was able to edit a complete edition of the medical and natural philosophic works of Paracelsus in 10 volumes. Huber's edition of Paracelsus's surgical writings (Chirurgische Bucher und Schriften) was issued after Huber's death, in Strasbourg in 1605. Links to facsimiles of the 10 vols. plus the 1605 edition at the Bayerische StaatsBibliothek from the Zurich Paracelsus Project at this link.
