This is the first English translation of one of the lesser known Hippocratic works. Although most scholars agree that it was not written by Hippocrates of Cos but was probably written by someone in the Cnidian school, it is agreed that it was written in the fifth century B.C. The book gives a clear statement of the current theories of reproduction, embryology and heredity. The author applied the scientific method and described in detail his experiments in chick embryology. The translation is scholarly and clear. The value of the book is enhanced by an Introduction and a series of Notes
