About this Item

24 cm. xiii, 101 pp. 5 plates (including frontis.) with fine printed tissue guards, leading engraved initial, bibliography; title embossed with previous owner's small blind stamp (Columbia University Medical Library), as are pp. 3, 27. Original gray on white marbled boards with gilt and black-stamped strip lines and text; spine somewhat tanned; rear pastedown with mounted envelope, small rubber ink stamped date. Bookplate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons with ink and ink-stamped markings; slight ink offsetting. Very good. Scarce. First English edition, dedicated to the Charaka Club by Wood, who used the 1474 edition in his translation. Although there were presumably earlier manuscripts, Garrison & Morton (5816) cite the 1474 edition as the "earliest printed book on ophthalmology". Bookseller Inventory # M12998
