About this Item

Rotario, Sebastiano (1667-1742). Ragioni . . . contra l'uso del salasso . . . 4to. 8, 168, 10pp. Verona: per gli Fratelli Merli, 1699. 210 x 161 mm. Limp boards ca. 1699, a bit soiled and worn. Faint dampstains in outer margins of several leaves, but very good. First Edition. Our copy includes the separately paginated Lettera di Sebastiano Rotario . . . scritta all'illustri Sig. N. N. traduttore del libro francese intitolato Orophile en desordre . . . , not present in all copies. Rotario wrote his treatise against the use of bloodletting as a rebuttal to Stefani Piccoli's Medicina ventilate (1695), which argued for the practice. Included at the end is Rotario's letter to the anonymous Italian translator of Orophile en desordre (1686), another anti-bloodletting treatise originally published in French in 1686. Rotario was the author of numerous medical works, but he is best known today for his letter of 20 November 1716 to Antonio Vallisnieri concerning the many fossilized marine animals found on Monte Bolca in the Italian Alps; this letter inspired Vallisnieri to write his Dei corpi marini (1721), in which he supported Fracastoro's argument that the fossil shells found on this site were there because the land had once been under the ocean (Luzzini, p. 78). Luzzini, "Flood conceptions in Vallisneri's thought," in Kölbl-Ebert, ed., Geology and Religion: A History of Harmony and Hostility, pp. 77-81. Bookseller Inventory # 43487
