About this Item

Boerhaave, Herman (1668-1738). Methodus studii medici emaculata & accessionibus locupletata ab Alberto ab Haller [i.e. Albrecht von Haller (1708-77)]. 2 vols., 4to. [18], 572; 573-1118, [6, errata]pp. Engraved frontispiece by Wandelaar, 3 folding engraved plates. Amsterdam: Jacob Wetstein, 1751. 254 x 198 mm. Quarter morocco gilt, marbled boards in period style. Some foxing and toning but very good. Engraved armorial bookplate of John Manning M.D., later bookplate of the Norwich & Norfolk United Medical Book Society. 20th century owner's signature in both volumes. First Edition of Haller's enormously expanded revision of Boerhaave's Methodus discendi medicinam (1726), "resulting in a text perhaps triple or quadruple its original length. While Boerhaave frequently cited classic authors in his lectures, Haller added extensive bibliographical lists to each chapter, with some entries annotated, resulting in a subject bibliography of useful works to the student, including many 16th century books" (Garrison-Morton [online] 6830). Fulton, The Great Medical Bibliographers, p. 60. Bookseller Inventory # 43605
