About This Item

Allgua: Ediitions Mediicina Rara A fine full leather copy of just 500 so bound, this being number CDXC. Originally published in 1491 this is a fine coloured facsimile in a facsimile embossed leather binding, contained in the slipcase as issued. Johannes de Ketham, the German physician routinely associated with the Fasciculus, was apparently not the author nor even the original compiler, but merely an owner of one of the manuscripts. The topics of the treatises cover a wide spectrum of medieval European medical knowledge and technique, including uroscopy, astrology, bloodletting, the treatment of wounds, plague, anatomical dissection, and women's health. The book is remarkable as the first illustrated medical work to appear in print; notable illustrations include: a urine chart, a diagram of the veins for phlebotomy, a pregnant woman, Wound Man, Disease Man and Zodiac Man.. Limited Numbered Edition. Hardback. Fine/Slipcase. Folio - over 12" - 15" Tall.
