This volume is more correctly a reflection of the medical references in the Old Testament. The author has carefully culled these references and has added to them definitions, excellent notes and Talmudic references. His work appears to be authentic and contains much of interest, not only for the scholar but for the general reader. There are a few attractive illustrations and a useful index.
