    THIS is a very welcome critical translation of the famous “Kitab-i-saidana”, referred to for the first time by H. Beveridge in 1902, which exists only in the Persian translation of Abu Bakr. It gives a mass of useful information about certain drugs and chemicals used in the early Middle Ages, and contains precious indications about the corresponding Greek renderings of these substances.
