About This Item

Parisiis,: Apud Guillelmum Cavelier,, MDCC.XXIII. [1723].. [ii blank], [xii], 352, [x], [x] pp. Small 8vo (10 x 16,5 cm.). Contemporary full marbled calf, spine with raised bands and in compartments gilt decorated with floral design; contemporary marbled end-papers; speckled edges (corners very slightly bumped and worn; hinges show some light traces of use, but a solid and attractive binding). With a few woodcut figures in the text. ¶ Lindeboom 315. First published at Leiden in 1917, this is the first edition printed in France but without Boerhaave's consent (all Cavelier Boerhaave imprints are pirate editions). "One of Boerhaave's pupils published an adaptation of his "Libellus de materie medica", greatly amplified from the lectures of his master. The succes of this spurious edition, followed by many reprints, show clearly how much Boerhaave's teaching on the medical treatement of diseases was valued" (Lindeboom p. 59). Nice copy with ample margins of a quite rare and early edition. Ancient owner's signature (Dr. Laperche) on title.
