Dot Porter, Curator, Digital Research Services at the University of Pennsylvania Library, offers a video orientation to Penn Library’s LJS 311, a collection of two Arabic medical texts translated into Hebrew, written in Italy in the 15th century. This manuscript contains books 1-3 and the beginning of Book 4 of Avicenna’s 11th-century comprehensive medical work, translated into Hebrew from Arabic. At the end of the volume is Maimonides’s 12th-century treatise on poisons, a much shorter work, which is also lacking the end of the text and was also translated from Hebrew to Arabic, by Mosheh Ibn Tibon. Marginal notes in Hebrew, with at least one in Italian (f. 44v).
