This is the fifteenth volume of IRCICA’s bio-bibliographies on the History of Ottoman Scientific Literature. The preceding volumes were related to astronomy, mathematics, geography, music, military arts, and natural and applied arts, respectively. The main body of the book lists the medical works in chronological order under the names and biographies of their authors. The last section lists the books of which the authors and/or translators are not known. The first three volumes have illustrations at the end, such as reproductions of manuscripts, drawings or photographs of hospital buildings, laboratories, etc., and the fourth volume ends with indexes of personal names, book titles, place names, names of institutions, names of copyists, names of places mentioned in colophon, book ownership registers and waqf registers. The book covers 5607 treatises and articles on medicine, dentistry, pharmacology and veterinary sciences by 1430 authors. It is estimated that this publication adds considerably to the data available on medical literature in the Muslim world.
