The medieval surgery by Tony Hunt ( )
16 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The medieval origins of current medical practice continue to be a subject of great interest. Tony Hunt has undertaken pioneer work in this field, and now presents, for the first time, the complete set of illustrations which accompany a 13th-century Anglo-Norman translation of Roger of Parma's Surgery (c. 1180), which was the first original treatise on surgery to be written in the medieval West. His commentary on the illustrations relates the drawings precisely to the sections of text they illustrate and thus provides more accurate identification of the different medical treatments depicted by the artist than has previously been the case. These distinctive drawings, almost without parallel in 13th-century England, show a consummate medical illustrator at work, uniquely combining technical, aesthetic and psychological interests. While the illustrations, which were added after the manuscript had been executed, performed a useful function as guide-marks to the contents of the surgical treatise, they are above all an intriguing and delightful monument to an anonymous artist of rare technical accomplishment. It is not only students of medicine who will find much of interest in these early pictorial representations of the medieval pharmacy and the range of therapeutic treatments covered by the surgeon in an age which had not yet produced any clear demarcation between surgery and general medicine

Les cantiques Salemon : the Song of Songs in MS Paris BNF fr. 14966 ( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first edition of one of three Old French commentaries on the S̀ong of Songs' (the other two published). It is notable for its inclusion of contrafacta of courtly, secular lyrics and by its fervent lyricism. Its character and allusions to the Beguines link it to female piety in Northern France in the 13th C. There is a very full introduction on the tradition of the Song of Songs and Beguine writing in Old French. A detailed summary of the text is provided, along with a very full glossary, notes, and a study of the language of the text. No edition has ever been made before despite the cultural significance of what is a most original text very much in the Cistercian tradition
