After Zakaryaye Razi (author of Al-Havi) and before Avicenna (author of the Canon of Medicine), Ali-ibn Abbas-al-Majusi was one of the great physicians and best known for his Kitab Kamil as-sina a attibbiyyah (the perfect book of medical art), also called al-Kitab al- Malaki (the royal book). This book together with Al-Havi and the Canon of Medicine constitute the great medical encyclopedia of Islam and Iran. Working in Adhudi Hospital in Bagdad, Ali-ibn Abbas served as court physician and dedicated his book to king Adhud al-Dawlah Dailami (died in 983 A.D). In the Author’s critical view about old and new physicians, comprehensiveness of this book on diseases and their treatment, sensitivity of the author over education method and style of writing have made this book one of the pillars of traditional medicine, so that it had been the textbook of medicine for several centuries after being translated into Latin, and had been used widely in Persia, Arabic countries and also in many parts of Europe. Ali-ibn Abbas died in Baghadad or Shiraz in 994 AD. Three volumes of kamil as-sina a attibbiyyah had been translated into persian by the corresponding author of this article and published by Institute of Islamic Studies of Tehran University-Mc Gill University Press. This descriptive article is about kamil as-sina a attibbiyyah and its translation is useful to anyone interested in the history of medicine and traditional medicine.
Keywords: Kamil as-sina a attibbiyyah, HAVI, canon, Diseases, Treatment
