This collection of Persian medical manuscripts, being published in a facsimile form for the first time,should appeal to anyone interested in the history of Persian medicine. Its historical value is due to the fact that the collection covers almost all the classical period during which the Persian language wasused to write on medical subjects (beginning of the fifth to the end of the thirteenth century A.H.), and includes the works of the most prominent authors such as: Zarrindast, Islamil Djurdjani Mansur b. Muhammad b. Ahmad, Hadji Zain al-Attar, and Muhammad Arzani needless to add here that themanuscripts themselves are extremely rare and are housed in the museums of some limited number of universities, where the access to them is also quite difficult. The facsimile publication of thesemanuscripts, therefore, will afford a rare opportunity for the scholars to refer to these original works more readily. The manuscripts have been faithfully rendered in the print form keeping trueto the originals as well as the notes, remarks, and comments made thereon The original manuscripts being extremely old and rare are mostly in a very dilapidated state. The restoration of the pages forthe facsimile to be made possible has been a very painstaking work for the publishers. But the effort would have been amply rewarded by the ready access to these rare works of medical writingand its development in Persia, by scholars, libraries and medical collections.

An orphan leaves Dark Ages London, taking a dangerous journey and posing as a Jew to study medicine in Persia, in “an adventurous and inspiring tale” (Library Journal). A child holds the hand of his dying mother and is terrified, aware something is taking her. Orphaned and given to an itinerant barber-surgeon, Rob Cole becomes a fast-talking swindler, peddling a worthless medicine. But as he matures, his strange gift—an acute sensitivity to impending death—never leaves him, and he yearns to become a healer. Arab madrassas are the only authentic medical schools, and he makes his perilous way to Persia. Christians are barred from Muslim schools, but claiming he is a Jew, he studies under the world’s most renowned physician, Avicenna. How the woman who is his great love struggles against her only rival—medicine—makes a riveting modern classic. The Physician is the first book in New York Times–bestselling author Noah Gordon’s Dr. Robert Cole trilogy, which continues with Shaman and concludes with Matters of Choice.

The Encyclopedia of Ancient Natural Scientists is the first comprehensive English language work to provide a survey of all ancient natural science, from its beginnings through the end of Late Antiquity. A team of over 100 of the world’s experts in the field have compiled this Encyclopedia, including entries which are not mentioned in any other reference work – resulting in a unique and hugely ambitious resource which will prove indispensable for anyone seeking the details of the history of ancient science. Additional features include a Glossary, Gazetteer, and Time-Line. The Glossary explains many Greek (or Latin) terms difficult to translate, whilst the Gazetteer describes the many locales from which scientists came. The Time-Line shows the rapid rise in the practice of science in the 5th century BCE and rapid decline after Hadrian, due to the centralization of Roman power, with consequent loss of a context within which science could flourish.

The year A.D. 1010 saw the completion of the Shahnama, the great Persian epic. Its author, the poet Firdausi, spent over thirty laborious years in its composition, only to experience, when the task had been achieved, a heart-breaking disappointment well worthy of inclusion in any record of the calamities of authors. His work has survived the test of time, and by general consent is accounted to be one of the few great epics of the world. Geographically, and in some other respects, it may be said to stand half-way between the epics of Europe and those of India. In its own land it has no peer, while in construction and subject-matter it is unique. Other epics centre round some heroic character or incident to which all else is subservient. In the Shahnama there is no lack either of heroes or of incidents, but its real hero is the ancient Persian people, and its theme their whole surviving legendary history from the days of the First Man to the death of the last Sasanian Shah in the middle of the seventh century of our era. It is the glory of the Persian race that they alone among all nations possess such a record, based as it is on their own traditions and set forth in the words of their greatest poet. In another sense, too, the Shahnama is unique. The authors of the other great epics tell us little or nothing of their own personalities or of their sources of information. Their works are fairy palaces suspended in mid air; we see the result, but know not how it was achieved. The author of the Shahnama takes us into his confidence from the first, so that in reading it we are let into the secret of epic-making, and can apply the know-ledge thus gained to solve the problem of the construction of its great congeners.
