Since Littré’s edition…the texts of the Epidemics, with the exception of I, III and VI, had only appeared in an edition by Pournaropoulos, and this is the first complete English translation… It is thus of enormous value in making all the books of the Epidemics available to those without a sufficient knowledge of Greek or French—or without access to the Littré edition. It is also a welcome further step towards a complete Loeb Hippocrates, and therefore towards a much-needed available and affordable edition of the Hippocratic Corpus.—C.F.
