Alī ibn Mūsā ibn Ja‘far (766-818 AD), known as Imam Reza, is the eight of the Shiite Twelve Imam, an extremely respected and holy figure for Shiite Muslims. His medical epistle written to Abbasid Caliph al-Ma’moon was known as “The Golden Treatise of Medicine” (al-Risalat az-Zahabiyya), a classic Arabic medical text, has scarcely been examined in English literature. This book presents the first annotated English translation of this medical epistle, supplemented with a biography of the author and an explanatory introduction.  

Ibn Nafis on the Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves

Ibn Nafis (1213–1288) is known for his discovery of the pulmonary circulation long before Michael Servetus and William Harvey. Shedding light on the pulmonary circulation for the first time in the history of science, Ibn Nafis’ Commentary on the Anatomy in the Canon of Avicenna has been the subject of many studies, but these have all been limited to his notion on the circulation. It is equally important for the historians of science and medicine to scrutinize the remaining parts of this commentary, yet to be fully translated into English. This book is the first English translation of a section of Ibn Nafis’s commentary on the anatomy of the nerves and particularly, the cranial nerves. 

August Froriep: The Cranial End of the Notochord in Human Embryos

August Froriep (1849–1917) was a German anatomist at Tübingen and a student of the great Jacob Henle (1809–1885). Froriep is known for his studies on the morphology and embryology of the head and vertebrae, and his descriptions of the temporary aggregation of neurons at the root of the embryonic hypoglossal nerve, known today as Froriep’s ganglion. 

In 1882, Froriep and Henle’s former students gathered in Gottingen to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Henle’s doctorate and present him a gift, Beiträge zur Anatomie und Embryologie (Contributions to Anatomy and Embryology), a book composed of chapters written by his students. The book included the classic paper by Froriep on the development of the notochord, which contained six beautifully crafted illustrations of this developmental anatomy. The present book is the first English transla-tion of Froriep’s paper as it appeared in Contributions to Anatomy and Embryology as a Gift to Jacob Henle, On April 4, 1882, Presented by his Pupils. Froriep’s black-and-white illustrations of notochordal development are reproduced in color.

Changes in the Cerebellum, Pons, and Medulla Oblongata due to Congenital Hydrocephalus of the Cerebrum - 1st Edition

Herniation of posterior cranial fossa contents was almost unknown before the publications of the Austrian pathologist Hans Chiari. Although other earlier, scattered, and single descriptions of the various types of hindbrain malformations that he studied had been made, it was Chiari who comprehensively described and categorized these pathological entities. This book presents the first English translation of Chiari's 1896 masterpiece on hindbrain herniations. The importance of these works in the history of medicine cannot be overstated. It is this monumental publication that would go on to pave the way for a better understanding and the development of surgical techniques to treat what has appropriately become known as the Chiari malformations.

Contributing Editor: R. Shane Tubbs, Ph.D.

1455051306957-3.jpeg

Hypotheses are fundamental to all sciences, including medicine. They play a critical role in motivating the development of science, since interesting and important hypotheses foster the diversity and debate upon which the scientific process depends. It is necessary to learn and understand how to assess a process, realize and discuss details and consequently launch a hypothesis. This book offers a number of novel, non-mainstream hypotheses – in various states of development – from authors with relevant expertise and experience.
