The ninth book of Rhazes' 'Liber ad Almansorem', which was popular as a therapeutic guide, circulated in independent copies or editions in addition to being found with the work of which it was a part. Excerpts from it first appeared in print in Gianmatteo Ferrari's commentary, conventionally entitled 'Practica' (Milan before 29th October 1472), and the first separate edition was published in Padua on 8th June 1476. Sylannus de Nigris' commentary which in this edition is printed alternatively with sections of the text, was published also with the first edition. The second edition includes an additional text, the Receptae of Pietro da Tossignano, a textbook of therapeutics and materia medica following the order of the liber Almansoris.
