[15--?]. On the body and sickness. Ends abruptly in Maqālah 7, faṣl 43 (of 60). Followed by short chapters on the description and preparation of medicines, pastes and drinks. According to most sources, Hippocrates did not write a work with this title; Dioscurides did, but the text differs from the present one.
The title-page (leaf 44 recto) bears the wrong title: Kitāb al-tadāruk li-anwāʻ khaṭāʾ al-tadbīr, attributed to Avicenna (cf. also Brockelmann, S II, p. 1028, Tadāruk al-khaṭāʾ fī tadbīr al-abdān by one Aḥmad al-Suhaylī). Small naskhī, in red and black. Loose in Islamic binding, in brown. Treatise on medicine.
Compared with Berlin catalog 6289, incipit, after the Ḥamdalah, somewhat different; but the explicit is the same. Good naskhī, in red and black. Islamic binding, covered with cheese-cloth. Manual of medicine.
[16--?]. Concise manual of therapeutics, abridged in part from al-Ḥāwī (treatise on medicine) of Muḥammad al-Rāzī. Fair modern (17th century?) naskhī, in red and black. Purchased from A. Ibrahim, London in August 1961 on the Russell Lord, Yale 1910 S, fund (established in 1928 by his mother Mrs. John Brackett Lord).
Commentary on al-Asbāb wa-al-ʻalāmāt (manual of medicine) of Najīb al-Dīn al-Samarqandī. Fairly modern (17th century?) naskhī; last leaf supplied by a later hand. From the library of Silvestre de Sacy (Catalogue, no. 74). Presented to Yale by Edward Elbridge Salisbury in 1870.
taʾlīf ... Ibrāhīm ibn ʻAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Abī Bakr al-Azraq. -- 1611. Medical treatise based on al-Kirmānī’s Shifāʾ al-ajsām and al-Ṣanawbarī’s Kitāb al-raḥmah. Marginalia in Arabic and Persian. Purchased from Oskar Rescher in 1970 on the Edwin J. Beinecke fund.
ʻAbd al-Qādir ibn ... Aḥmad ibn Ḥasan al-Muwaqqarī. -- 1618. Treatise on therapeutics, in several chapters (faṣl). Author and title, as above, are given in a later hand on leaf 1 recto. The same name occurs in the colophon as that of the owner of this copy, and the later owner’s ex-libris also seems to imply that al-Muwaqqarī was the owner. Both author and title are therefore highly suspect. Fair naskhī, in red and black, apparently by more than one hand.
Muḥammad al-mulaqqab bi-ʻAlāʾ al-Dīn al-ṭabīb. -- [17--?]. Dictionary of materia medica. Modern (18th century?) calligraphic naskhī, in gold, red, and black. In Arabic, with occasional lapses into Persian. Purchased from the Wellcome-Kraus collection in 1949.

Muḥammad ibn Ibrāhīm ibn al-Akfānī. -- [1700?]. Treatise on ophthalmology, presumably identical with Ibn al-Akfānī’s al-Risālah al-nūrīyah fī al-khḥl (Leyden catalogue, I, 22). Followed by an appendix (leaves 11 verso-53) by Nūr al-Dīn ʻAlī al-Mutaṭabbib. The work ends on leaf 53, and is followed by Dhikr al-awzān wa-al-makāyīl (on pharmaceutical weights and messures, leaves 54 recto-verso), and Maqālah fī al-faṣd (on bloodletting, leaves 54 verso-6

Ascribed by Ḥājjī Khalīfah (no. 7877) and in one of the Berlin manuscripts (Ahlwardt 6297) to Jalāl al-Dīn al-Suyūṭī, which is chronologically impossible, since some manuscripts are dated before his time.
