Medieval manuscripts on medicine and pharmacy

© Institute of Manuscripts of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (IMANAS)

The present collection of medical manuscripts is unique. Some of these manuscripts are available only in this collection. Only a few manuscripts of other books have been recorded in the manuscript depositories of the World. However, all of these books are fundamental works and once were widely used all over the Muslim World. With time many manuscripts were lost. Therefore, the present collection is unique and irreplaceable. It is kept by the Institute of Manuscript of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (IMANAS) named after Mahammad Fuzuli. Read more on the UNESCO Memory of the World website.
