A great text on gynecology and obstetrics written 14 centuries ago is presented in modern form, having been translated and annotated by the eminent gynecologist-historian, Dr. Ricci. The contents represent the sixteenth or last book of an encyclopedia of medicine by AETIOS of AMIDA, who was a renowned Byzantine physician and medical author. In this fascinating book one finds detailed descriptions of disease, therapeutic principles and substances, and operative technics in vogue in the sixth century A.D. Obstetricians, gynecologists and medical historians will find pleasant and instructive reading in this volume.
