The University of Iowa History of Medicine Society invites you to attend the first talk of the semester.
Jillian Linster, PhD candidate, English Department, University of Iowa
speaking on: Dr. Helkiah Crooke (1576-1648): The Historical and Literary Legacy of an Early Modern Physician.
Thursday, September 22, 2016, 5:30-6:30 Hardin Library for the Health Sciences, Room 401
Dr. Helkiah Crooke wrote the first comprehensive English anatomy manual. His book, Mikrokosmographia, was printed by William Jaggard, who also published Shakespeare’s First Folio. But both Crooke’s and Jaggard’s careers were endangered by their decision to produce this controversial text, which made detailed medical knowledge available to the general public. A close examination of Crooke’s career as an author and physician provides insight into shifting views on medical authority at a crucial point in the history of Western medicine.

AVICENNA (980-1037). Canon medicinae. 4 vols. in 3. Lyons: Johannes Trechsel, completed by Johannes Clein, 1498.
Known in the Persian world as the Chief or the Second Doctor (Aristotle having been the first), Avicenna (Arabic Ibn Sīnā) was an accomplished physician as well as a noted philosopher. He wrote widely on theology, metaphysics, astronomy, philosophy, law, and medicine, and it has been estimated that he was the author of more than one hundred books.
The Canon was his greatest medical compilation and “stands for the epitome of all precedent development, the final codification of all Graeco-Arabic medicine.” A large encyclopedic work on medicine, it is, for the most part, based on the writings of Hippocrates and Galen although Avicenna included many original observations and noteworthy clinical descriptions. Canon medicinae was a dominant force in medical thought, practice, and writing for more than five centuries.
This massive and beautiful incunable is the first edition of Avicenna to have been printed in France and is a landmark in the history of French printing.

University of Iowa Libraries’ Gallery will host the only stop in the state of Iowa for First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, a national traveling exhibition of the Shakespeare First Folio.
First Folio will be on display at the Main Library Gallery from August 29 through September 25, 2016. Location and hours
Organized by the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the tour is produced in association with Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association. First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare offers a rare glimpse of the Shakespeare First Folio, one of the world’s most significant books, as it visits all 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico.
Many of Shakespeare’s plays were not published during his lifetime. The First Folio is the first collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays. It was published in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare’s death. Two of Shakespeare’s fellow actors compiled 36 of his plays, hoping to preserve them for future generations. Without it, we would not have 18 of Shakespeare’s plays, including Macbeth, Julius Caesar, Twelfth Night, The Tempest, Antony and Cleopatra, The Comedy of Errors, and As You Like It. All 18 appear for the first time in print in the First Folio.
