‘Abd al-Malik ibn Abi al-‘Alā Ibn Zuhr was a native of Seville and a highly regarded physician in Islamic Spain. The Teisir, his most famous work, describes preparations for medicines and diets, provides insightful clinical descriptions of many diseases, and discusses surgical procedures in considerable detail. Although the original Arabic version of the text is no longer extant, its content has survived through Hebrew and Latin translations. The second work included in this volume is the Colliget, or general rules of medicine of the medieval Andalusian polymath ʾAbū l-Walīd Muḥammad Ibn ʾAḥmad Ibn Rušd, also known by the Latinized name of Averroës.
