About this Item

Oh, this is a lovely thing -- beautiful as an object and accessible to the reader without a medical background. Bound in navy blue top grade pigskin with five raised bands to spine, gilt page edges on all three sides, and elaborate 22-karat gilding to both face and back boards. It's a hefty tome that feels grand to hold and is a bit oversized at 7"x9-1/2". The pages are pristine and the yellow satin bound-in marker clearly unused.A handsome black bookplate appears at front paste-down, beautiful against the paisley endpapers, and indicates copy number of the limited edition and the name of its original owner, all printed in gilt. Illustrations abound, the paper was specially made for this edition and and the typeface most handsome. Its only fault is a bit of gilt loss to face which, oddly, does not detract from it beauty, but rather lends an air of antiquity.Gaspare Tagliacozzi ranked among the most distinguished physicians of the Renaissance. Not only does the text relate his life story in an interesting fashion, but includes a documented study of the cultural and scientific life of Bologna in the sixteenth century. A gem of a book. 538 pages including index. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 22076

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
