About the Book

Yperman wrote the first surgical treatise in the common language of his home in Flanders. It was the first by a northern European beyond France. His teacher was Lanfranchi and his contemporary was Henri de Mondeville, both of whom had carried into France the doctrines of the great Italian surgeons, they who had attended the rebirth of surgery in Europe in the High Medieval Era.


About the Author

Dr. Rosenman is a retired surgeon and Professor of Surgery in San Francico, CA. He has provided English translations of seven of the eight seminal treatises written between 1170 and 1330 AD which reintroduced the art into Europe before the epoch of the Great Plague. With this translation of a treatise by one of three great surgeons of the 16th C, we can see how the art of practical surgery came to be dominated by the barber-surgeons while the academics of medicine and surgery were wasting their energies in battles for turf.
