About this item

Content

A copy of Galen's Τέχνη ἰατρική ( Ars medica ) in the Arabic version thought to be by Ḥunayn ibn Isḥāq al-‘Ibādī. In Arabic, the text is called الصناعة الصغيرة ( Ars parva ). The text is accompanied by a commentary by Abū al-Faraj ‘Abd Allāh Ibn al-Ṭayyib (أبو الفرج عبد الله بن الطيب). The copy is dated Dhū al-Ḥijjah 448 (February-March 1057; see colophon Section at the end of a manuscript text. fol. 114v, line 16, transcribed below), just 14 years after Ibn al-Ṭayyib's death in 435/1043.

Begins (f. 2v, lines 2-6):

أطال الله بقاه لكتاب جالينوس الموسوم بالصناعة الصغيرة

التعليم الأول

لما كانت الأبدان الغير بقية كلما عددناها ودناها شدًا كما

قال بقراط ...

Ends (f. 114, lines 8-11):

صداعًا والحلو لعلظه يولد عدًا غليظًا وأصناف الحمر

وإنها نافع وموافق لمزاج الإنسان وإنها لا (!) قد

شرحت من كتاب تدبير الأصحاء وهاهنا ينقضي تعليمنا

وبانقضائه ينقضي الكتاب بأسره

Colophon Section at the end of a manuscript text. (f. 114v, lines 11-16):

... تم تفسير

أطال الله بقاه لكتاب جالينوس الموسوم بالصناعة الصغيرة

والحمد لله كثيرًا (؟) وصلى الله على خير به (؟) من خلقه محمد وآله وسلم تسليمًأ (؟)

A note in English written about AD 1773 and bound into the volume as folio 1 gives a brief history of the manuscript, mistakenly claiming that Ibn al-Ṭayyib was a Jew; he was a Nestorian Christian.
