The book combines two works: Argellata’s "Libri sex chirurgiae" and the Tasrif by the Andalusian Abū l-Qāsim Khalaf ibn ʿAbbās al-Zahrāwī (known in Europe as Albucasis), in Gerard of Cremona's Latin translation (1112-87). Argellata's "Chirurgia," first published in Venice in 1480, draws heavily on the work of his famous teacher, Guy de Chauliac (which in turn drew on Albucasis'), but also on Lanfranc, Mondeville, Saliceto and others. Pietro Argellata of Bologna (d. 1423), who was hailed in his own day as an outstanding surgeon, is one of the most prominent examples of the influence that Albucasis' work had on the evolution of Western surgery. Abulcasis’ work is illustrated with woodcuts of surgical instruments originally derived from an Arabic manuscript. See Monica H. Green, “Moving from Philology to Social History: The Circulation and Uses of Albucasis’s Latin Surgery in the Middle Ages,” in Between Text and Patient: The Medical Enterprise in Medieval and Early Modern Europe, ed. F. E. Glaze and B. Nance (Florence, 2011), pp. 331-72.
