On Rules Regarding the Practical Part of the Medical Art had been
labeled a copy of On Asthma by bio-bibliographer Moritz
Steinchneider, but a closer examination of the manuscript by Gerrit
Bos and Tzvi Langermann has revealed the treatise to be a
previously unrecognized work of the great philosopher-physician
Moses Maimonides. The publication of this translation marks the
first time the Arabic manuscript with English translation has been
available to a modern audience in any form. It is in Maimonides'
favored aphoristic format and contains some unique advice on
serious abdominal wounds, which is most likely a reflection on
Maimonides' own experience with battlefield casualties.
