The Public Library of the Manisa Province has a fairly rich collection of medical manunscripts some of which are unique copies. Two examples that may be cited in this connection are Tarvih al-Ervah by physician and poet Ahmedî (1334(?)-1413) and the Persian translation of Beyrunî's Kitab-al-Saydala. Another unique manuscript is an abridged translation of Zahravî's work, which I intend to introduce here briefly.
