Critique: 'An extraordinary contribution to our medical and surgical history! There is no question that the collaboration of an Egyptologist and a neurosurgeon has clearly made this translation a better result and a clear improvement on Breasted's original brilliant accomplishment, bringing this remarkable historical document back to new life. The addition of the illustrations will help the nonmedical reader understand what the various injuries represent-as always a "picture is worth a thousand words." A landmark work!' (James T. Goodrich, (Hon) Director, Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Children's Hospital at Montefiore. Professor of Clinical Neurosurgery, Pediatrics, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Albert Einstein College of Medicine) 'Sanchez and Meltzer have performed a minor miracle, producing a new edition of Papyrus Edwin Smith that surpasses all previous efforts at translating and understanding this difficult and fascinating text. Meltzer has taken full advantage of this opportunity to test the Standard Theory of Egyptian grammar against a text that is perfect for the task. His translation remains lucid for a beginner while the grammatical notes are thought-provoking for professionals. This book is truly an important accomplishment in the history of translation and our understanding of medical history.' (Edward Bleiberg, Curator of Egyptian Art, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY) 'This eloquent volume brings a cascade of new insights and breathes fresh vitality into the ancient Edwin Smith Papyrus. The eminent scholars, Gonzalo M. Sanchez, a distinguished Neurosurgeon and strong contributor to the field of Egyptology, and Edmund S. Meltzer, a noted Philologist, have teamed up to bring modern neuroscience and sophisticated advances in the interpretation of ancient Egyptian texts to bear on new case translations and commentaries. Remarkably, they have also brought to light the notes of Edwin Smith himself, which are published here for the first time. A visual index in color at the start of the volume makes the basic nature of the injuries clear to all, specialist and nonspecialist alike. Black and white photographs demonstrate the particular injuries in the cases. The authors convincingly demonstrate that the approach to treatment of trauma in ancient Egypt was very much in keeping with modern concepts of medical-surgical care. Not only will this sumptuous Lockwood Press volume fascinate clinical neuroscientists, Egyptologists, and historians of science, it will bring new audiences to this remarkable document.' (John Booss, Professor Emeritus, Departments of Neurology and Laboratory Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine; Former National Director of Neurology, Department of Veterans Affairs) 'This new edition of the Edwin Smith papyrus should stand for a long time as the definitive study of a very important text, and-thanks to the very successful and happy collaboration of Edmund Meltzer and Gonzalo Sanchez-as a model for future studies of ancient Egypt's technical literature. This is a complete publication, which provides students and scholars with a facsimile of the original hieratic text, an accurate transcription of the hieratic, a modern translation and exhaustive philological commentary, and-particularly important for non-Egyptologists-an expert medical commentary by an experienced neurosurgeon. This is a milestone not only for Egyptology, but for the history of science and of medicine.' (Stephen Vinson, Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, Indiana University)

Description du livre Lockwood Press, Atlanta, Georgia, 2012. Hardcover. État : NF. Glossy grey/black boards with color image and red/putty lettering. 379 pp. with XVII color plates, 42 figure (mostly bw) and the manuscript reproduced in bw. "This volume contains the original hieratic text, complete transcription into hierglyphs, transliteration, English translation, philological apparatus and copiously illustrated medical commentaries for the 48 clinical cases of the Edwin Smith Papyrus.

Includes a note on transliteration, note on column and line numbering, list of abbreviations, visual index, a General and Medical Introduction (Gonzalo M. Sanchez) and Philological Introduction (Edmund S. Meltzer), 5 appendices, a general and medical index, and a philological index. The color plates are of the original Edwin Smith Papyrus. A few of the 48 case studies are: Scalp Contusion Laceration Penetrating to the Bone; Head Injury with Open, Comminuted, Depressed Skull Fracture; Fracture of the Nasal Septum; Necrotic Maxillary Stab Wound; Cranio-Facial Injury with Comminuted Maxillary-Zygomatic Fractures and Basilar Skull Fractures of the Anterior and Middle Fossae; Slashing Wound of the Ear; Mandibular Dislocation; Anterior Neck Wound with Esophageal-Tracheal Fistula; Cervical Burst Fracture with Spinal Cord Injury and Brain Contusion; Traumatic Costochondritis; Possible Kertinous/Epidermoid Cyst of the Chest Plate. (Heavy on the slashing wounds, probably because of the use of bladed objects in battle and dispute-settling.) The authors are specialists in medicine/neurology and in Egyptology and ancient civilizations. Excellent illustrations and diagrams used for the medical examples. One incredibly amazing book!.
