    First published in 2000. Due to the author’s ongoing interest in Ibn al-Jazzar's medical compendium, called Ziid al-musiifir wa-qiit al-/:la4ir (Provisions for the Traveller and Nourishment for the Sedentary) he would like to present to the reader a critical edition with translation and introduction of the section from Bk. 7, chs. 1-6 which deals with the different kinds of fevers. Such an edition is an urgent desideratum in the history of Islamic medicine, since so far none of the medical works of the Islamic physicians dealing with fevers has been published in a critical edition and translation.
