Wellcome Arabic Medical Manuscripts - now online

The Wellcome Library’s collection of over 1,000 Arabic medical manuscripts will be fully online over the summer.  Over 120 manuscript records are currently available to view.

Arabic medicine was once the most advanced in the world and complete digital facsimiles of some of its most important texts are now freely available online. 

The manuscripts can be searched or browsed, and compared side-by-side on the screen to highlight any differences.
