The prevention and cure of disease and the treatment of injuries were major concerns in ancient Egypt. Poorly understood in Egyptian society, illness informed much of their art. Featuring works from the Metropolitan Museum's collection, this fascinating book examines this relatively unexplored aspect of Egyptian art. It includes two introductory essays on Egyptian medicine, descriptions and photographs of sixty-four objects, and the first colour reproduction of the Edwin Smith Papyrus in its entirety, accompanied by a full translation. One of the world's oldest scientific documents, the fifteen-foot-long Smith papyrus (now housed in the New York Academy of Medicine), discusses both practical and magical treatments of wounds and other maladies. Exhibition schedule: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 12 September 2005 to 15 January 2006.

I had only read about the Edwin Papyrus before, never seen it. The way the text and translation were put on facing pages was fascinating, but the text itself is only of historic interest. As someone in the healing arts, I would imagine this papyrus was used as a textbook because the "cases" did not really appear to be case histories so much as instructions. If they had, in fact, been case histories, I would have expected some follow up testifying to benefits of the treatment. The organization of the cases from relatively simple to more and more complex and from head to neck and so on truly suggest that the book was used for teaching purposes, and the only pity is that some of the minerals and herbs were evidently not recognized by the translator so we are left wondering about many details.
