He was the first and still one of the most famous Arab philosopher-scientists. He wrote on many sucbjects, of which some were translated into latin during the Middle ages. De medicinarum compositatarum is one of his most important works. Latin translations of Al-Kindi┬┐s work are very rare. This book is a collection of early medical text from the middle ages and early 16th century. A good to very good copy. Boards worn and somewhat soiled. Old handwritten title vignette on spine. Internally very good, except for the title page where some paper loss has been very professionally restored. The paper loss affects the final "m" in Mareschallum in the imprint, as well as 4 of the lines of the text on the verso. Title page with a an ink number in a very old hand. There are a few instances of old ink underlining and cross-outs to the text, and several marginalia, else very good. In all, still a nice copy of an extremely rare work. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
