Known in Europe as Mesue, Yuhanna Ibn Masawayh was the chief physician at the ninth-century medical school in Baghdad and wrote prolifically in Syriac and Arabic. Best known for his expertise in ophthalmology, gynecology, and anatomy, his were among the earliest Arabic medical texts available in Europe. This copy of his works, published with additional medical texts by other authors, is bound in contemporary blind stamped leather and features fine Lombard rubrication.
