The work of a Persian doctor, philosopher, scholar, known in Europe as Avicenna (Abu Ali Ibn Sina, 980–1037). The Canon of Medicine was written at the beginning of the 11th century, but served as a manual of medical knowledge in the West even up to the 17th century, while in the East it is sometimes used up to this day. The work consists of five books; each of them is devoted to a different medical issue.
The Canon had numerous translations and editions. The later editions, including the presented Venetian issue from the 16th century, contained additionally Avicenna’s biography based on al-Juzjani’s original composed by Niccolo Massa, translated by Marek Eadell (Fadlallah) from Damascus and published by Paweł Alpago, son of Andrzej.
