Digitized Medical Books from UVA

The Claude Moore Health Sciences Library at the University of Virginia has digitized many medical works from their collection dating from the 5th century BCE through the 19th century.  Only a few pages from each book are available online, however.   Among over 40 authors whose works are included are Hippocrates, Albertus Magnus, Rene Descartes and Benjamin Rush.
