About this item


Anonymous handbook of surgical practice.

The title appears on the cover of the volume (f. 1r) as the Book of Surgical Operations (كتاب العمليات الجراحية), but is given in table of contents (ff. 1v-4r, on f. 1v, line 1) as Blazes of Success Concerning the Surgeon’s Operations (كتاب غرر النجاح في أعمال الجراح). The latter title belongs to a work by Muḥammad bin ʻAlī al-Baqlī (محمد بن علي البقلي, d. 1876), but a comparison between that work (Baqlī, Kitāb Ghurar al-najāḥ , 1263/1846) and the present manuscript proves that they are in fact not identical.

Many leaves have been left blank. F. 89 is formed of four leaves pasted together. The manuscript is bound and held within a chemise. Both the front and back boards have been foliated as though the chemise itself were the cover.

Begins (f. 4v, lines 2-5):

في عمليات التي تفعل على المجموعه العظمي

هذه العمليات إما أن تكون أصلية لاستئصال جزؤًا عظمي مريض

أو أنها تفعل لأجل أحداث سبيل لعمل آخر كفتح الجيب الفكي لأجل

شفاء ما كان فيه وأنهذه العملية تكون جذؤًا من عملية أخرى كما البتر

Ends (f. 204r, lines 25-28):

ويترك للالتحام فيما بعد والمرضى التي بهذه الحالة لا يعطى لهم إلا

إلا (!) غذية الحقيقة مدة زمن طويل فإذا تولدت أعراض التجمع

السفلى مع هذا الاحتراس فتشق الشرة (؟) الالتحام ثانيًا ويترك الشرج (؟)

للطيفة وبذالك يحكى أنه غير قابل للشفاء تمت
