In the later Middle Ages, various illustrated manuscripts were produced for a handbook of health, the "Tacuinum Sanitatis," probably based on the work of an 11th-century Arab physician. This book, translated from the original Italian, discusses five codices and presents 48 color and 243 B&W reproductions from the mss., with English translations of the original accompanying commentaries. With a table of concordance.
