In Garrison-Morton 14 this original is referenced: 'Francis Adams, surgeon of Banchory, Scotland, prepared this partial translation to acquaint his contemporaries with "the opinions of an author, whom I verily believe to be the highest exemplar of professional excellence which the world has ever seen". It was the last English edition of the Hippocratic writings intended to serve as actual medical instruction.'
