Greek manuscripts at the Wellcome Library in London: A descriptive catalogue. By Petros Bouras-Vallianatos with contributions by Georgi R. Parpulov.

Medical History, 59, 275-326, 2015.

Detailed bibliographical descriptions of the 16 manuscripts then owned by the Wellcome Library, including several from the collections of Anthony Askew (1722-1774), who acquired his in the dispersal of the library of Richard Mead (1673-1754). Most are medieval and fall into the category of Byzantine and post-Byzantine iatrosophia, a "type of physician's handbook consisting of simple recipes for use in daily practice."
