Yuhanna ib Masawaih was a 9th-century ancient Persian physician who is remembered for writing some of the earliest treatises on cures for fever, headache, leprosy, and melancholy. Though most of his medicinal theories are no longer valid, he did concern himself and his patients with the use of aromatics as a form of healing.

 

This 1623 Venetian edition of the works of Masawaih was published by Junta, who included commentary of various 17th-century doctors including Jacques Dubois. It also includes medical encyclopedia entries from Arab doctors Saladin of Ascoli and Albengnefit.
