About this Item

Dolaeus, Johann (1651-1707). Encyclopaedia chirurgica rationalis. . . . 4to. [32] 1602, [76]pp., irregularly paginated. Added engraved title. Frankfurt am Main: Friedrich Knoch, 1689. 204 x 168 mm. Vellum c. 1689, a little stained, gilt-tooled calf backstrip (a bit rubbed & chipped) glued over vellum spine. Light foxing & browning, a few edges frayed, but very good. Early ownership inscription of P. Denuce. Library stamp on title. First Edition. Dolaeus belonged to the iatrochemical school of Paracelsus and van Helmont. His immense surgical encyclopedia, as indicated on the title, is based on the principles of Galen, Paracelsus, van Helmont, Willis, Sylvius and Descartes; it discusses all manner of surgical diseases, including hernia, cancer, abscesses, ulcers, gangrene and afflictions of the sense organs, teeth, and genitalia. A physician to the German nobility, Dolaeus became rich and famous through his secret "liquor antivariolosus" (presumably a remedy for smallpox); he also anticipated Cheyne in his dietary treatment of gout. Dolaeus's encyclopedia of surgery was reissued several times, but the first edition is scarce-- when we checked OCLC cited only 4 copies in North American libraries. Krivatsy 3313. Hirsch. Wellcome II, p. 477. Bookseller Inventory # 34578
