Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS 426, the first book of Avicenna's medical encyclopedia, comprising an introduction to general knowledge of medicine, anatomy, temperament, and the effect of environment on health and disease. Frequent marginal annotations, some affected by trimming. The first 40 leaves and the last 10 are later replacements.

Item is undated, but based on the paper, probably copied in Persia in the late 14th century.

Digital copies and a full record are available through Franklin: https://franklin.library.upenn.edu/catalog/FRANKLIN_9958617143503681
