Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference articles and books relevant to the book The Dispensatory of Ibn at-Tilmīḏ. The dispensatory of Ibn at-Tilmīḏ already stands near the end of a relatively long chain of inventive pharmacological development in the Arab world, and insofar as clinical pharmacology is concerned undoubtedly marks the apogee of this genre of scientific literature. According to the Arabic historiographical tradition, it was Ibn at-Tilmīḏ's dispensatory which soon after its appearance became the pharmacological standard work in the hospitals and apothecs of Baghdad if not the Arab East, replacing, after almost 300 years, the hitherto indispensable dispensatory of sābūr ibn Sahl; it turned out to be the most renowned and widely circulated of all his writings, and for at least the following 200 years, possibly longer, it was considered in medical circles to be the final say on the matter.

Keywords: Arabic historiographical tradition; dispensatory; Ibn at-Tilmīḏ; sābūr ibn Sahl
