This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: The prevention and cure of disease and the treatment of injuries were major concerns in ancient Egypt. Poorly understood in Egyptian society, illness informed much of their art. Featuring works from The Metropolitan Museum's collection, this fascinating book examines this relatively unexplored and underappreciated aspect of Egyptian art. It includes two introductory essays on Egyptian medicine, descriptions and photographs of sixty-four objects, and the first color reproduction of the Edwin Smith Papyrus in its entirety, accompanied by a full translation. One of the world's oldest scientific documents, the fifteen-foot-long Smith papyrus (now housed in the New York Academy of Medicine), discusses both practical and magical treatments of wounds and other maladies.

Inhaltsangabe: If the average Egyptian survived birth and infancy they then had to face the perils of living and working in ancient Egypt. It is perhaps not surprising that physicians were prominent in Egyptian society - seeking to prevent and treat illness and injury. In association with an exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York from 2005-6, this volume is dedicated to the art of Egyptian medicine. Following short introductory essays by James Allen and David T. Minniberg (The Legacy of Ancient Egyptian Medicine) is a catalogue of more than sixty objects that reflect some of the medical concerns in Egyptian art and in more practical terms. The volume also includes a full colour reproduction of the Edwin Smith Payrus written in Thebes in c.1600 BC as a practical guide for physicians treating wounds of the head and torso. The papyrus also contains a series of magic spells, against mental and emotional disorders, pestilence, and against a fever amongst others, as well a potions for skin ointments, haemorrhoid cream and for 'making an old man into a youth'! An English translation appears on the facing page.
Diseases and injuries were major concerns for ancient Egyptians.
