Hippocrates: Collected Works, v.1, 26 June 2008.

Hippocrates of Cos (ca. 460 BC – ca. 370 BC) Collected Works.
Translated by Dr. Francis Adams (1796–1861).

There are about 70 works in the Hippocratic corpus. Many of them are actually by his students. This translation, by a Scottish doctor collects the ones most likely to be by Hippocrates himself. It includes the Hippocratic Oath.

From the Aphorisms:
‘Life is short, and Art long; the crisis fleeting; experience perilous, and decision difficult. The physician must not only be prepared to do what is right himself, but also to make the patient, the attendants, and externals cooperate.’


Contents:
On Airs, Waters, and Places
On Ancient Medicine
Aphorisms
On the Articulations
The Book of Prognostics
On Fistulae
On Fractures
On Haemorrhoids
On Injuries of the Head
Instruments of Reduction
The Law
The Oath
Of the Epidemics
On Regimen in Acute Diseases
On the Sacred Disease
On the Surgery
On Ulcers

It is perhaps worth noting that the mid 19th century ideas about which books in the Hippocratic "corpus" were and were not written by Hippocrates himself have been pretty much "de-bunked" by modern techniques of textual analysis. It's generally admitted today that perhaps none of the works we have were written by him or, if they were, we haven't a clue which ones. All we can say is that the books originated from the Hippocratic "school" between about the 4th and 2nd centuries.
