Both treatises, which form part of a series of studies dealing with the local medical history of Zurich edited by Dr. Wehrli, offer a vivid picture of medieval medicine and the gradual development of state control of epidemics and public health in general. The treatise of Baas is particularly rich in material relating to the guild organization of the surgeons, the regulation of midwives and the development of the city hospitals. Both studies will form an interesting addition to the medico historical library.
