Original vellum covers. Gift presentation inscription on title. Very good. . "With his observant mind, breadth of knowledge, and new attitude toward his profession, Fernel was a man of the Renaissance." [DSB, IV, p. 585]. "In medicine Fernel gave early descriptions of appendicitis and endocarditis. His ranking in the history of medicine, however, rests mainly upon his role as a reformer fighting to replace magic, sorcery, and astrology with observation at the sickbed." [DSB, IV, p. 586]. A collected edition of his works, including his therapeutics, to which are appended his treatises on fever, syphilis, and epilepsy. See Sherrington 71.J15.
