Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS 322, fragmented sections from Books III (al-Amrāḍ al-juzʼīyah, diseases arranged by part of the body), IV (al-Amrāḍ allatī lā takhuṣṣu ʻuḍwan bi-ʻaynih, diseases not specific to particular organs), and V (al-Adwiyah al-murakkabah, compound drugs, ointments, and electuaries) of Avicenna's medical encyclopedia. Many marginal notes have been trimmed; some later marginal notes run from the manuscript leaves onto their modern paper frames.
