Friedrich Hoffmann (1660-1742). Heirs of Hippocrates 456. ‘. Hoffmann was a prolific writer and in this work provides a comprehensive view of the medicine of his day. He was the chief designer of the mechanico-dynamic system, in which health is conceived of as normal movement and disease as disturbed movement. Hoffmann based his treatment on the use of sedatives, tonics, alteratives and evacuants, according to the condition responsible for causing the disease. Apart from his system, Hoffmann was one of the premier practioners of his day and one of the first to give good description of appendicitis, chlorosis, rubella, and convulsive asthmas with dropsy. He also wrote treatises on such subjects as pediatrics, physiology, pathology, medical ethics, and personal hygiene.’Welcome III, p.285; G & M 72 ‘Hoffmann of Halle was the most important of the Iatromechanists. He believed an ether-like "vital fluid" to be present in the nervous system and to act upon the muscles, giving them "tonus".’ Additional postage may be necessary US$572. Seller Inventory # 217677

About this Item: Ex Typographia Adriani Vlacq, Hagae, 1661. Full Leather. Condition: Very Good binding. First Edition. Folio. Important work by French Astrologer Jean Baptiste Morin, who was the royal astrologer to the House of Bourbon. He was present at the birth of Louis XIV in order to observe the exact time of his birth for casting his horoscope. Consisting of 26 books of complex Latin text, and covering natal, judicial, meterological, and other aspects of astrology, it is considered by some to be the most important astrology book ever written. Red and white title embellished with a woodcut device. Diagrams in text. This copy seems to be lacking a portrait of Morin as well as the "Syllabus Capitum Huius Operis" (I believe a 12 page table of contents typically bound at the end)--there is no evidence of its removal, so probably not bound in. Additionally, there appears to be a missing leaf preceding the "Vita" in the preliminaries. Everything else seems to be in order -- a complete statement of collation is available upon request. Bound in 17th century speckled calf with raised bands and gold tooling in the compartments; contemporary spine label present; some loss to the leather at the head and tail of the spine; edges of the textblock are nicely sprinkled in red and perhaps brown or faded green. Previous owner has stamped his name insignia (an encircled owl in style of Ancient Egypt) a number of time throughout the book including twice on the title page. Very Good binding.

About this Item: PRIMERA EDICION (?).- In Trento, Per Gio: [Giovanni] Antonio Brunati, Con Licenza de' Superiori, [ca. 1716].- [6 h.], 200 p., [1 h.]: letras y viñetas capitulares grabadas en madera; 8º menor (15,7 cm.); Enc. en Pergamino época con título manuscrito en lomera, cinco nervios.- El libro tiene dos anotaciones antiguas en la hoja de cortesía y portada, sin afectar texto; por lo demás se encuentra en MUY BUEN ESTADO, con el papel blanco y sin manchas. CONTIENE: Introducción; Discorso I: Essere meglio star senza medico, che non averne un buono; Discorso II: Esservi la Medicina, ma poter ogni uno esser Medico di sè Medesimo; Discorso III: Della difficoltà della Medicina, e dell'inganno delle più famose sette de Medici, e particolarmente de gli Dommatici, e seguaci de gli Antichi; Discorso IV: Nel quale si contengono alcuni avvertimenti per vivere, e conservare molto tempo la salute; Discorso V: Se sia meglio valersi de Medici Moderni, o Galenisti. El autor (1661-1715), médico veronés y fundador de la Accademia degli Aletofili, fue un adelantado a su tiempo, anticipando el espíritu de la ilustración en su defensa de una medicina científica en contraposición a la clásica griega; según Gazola, proliferaban en su tiempo numerosos curanderos, autoproclamados médicos, que prácticamente mataban a sus pacientes en vez de curarlos. El texto está escrito con una fina ironía y no muestra compasión alguna, algo especialmente comprensible al ser una edición póstuma que probablemente el autor mandara imprimir justo tras su muerte, un año antes; el revuelo que causó fue considerable, existiendo hasta 24 ediciones distintas de esta obra, con sus correspondientes contestaciones y defensas varias. El libro que ofrecemos no tiene fecha impresa, pero sabemos que el editor, Giannantonio Brunati, publicó un par de contestaciones a esta obra ya en el 1717, y otra más en el 1718; es probable, por tanto, que el texto que ofrecemos sea del propio 1716, año en el que vio la luz la primera edición. Acerca de la misma, siendo éste un libro tan prolífico, existe sin embargo un notorio desconocimiento: algunos toman como tal la impresa en Venecia por Marino Rossetti, pero el fallecido Christian Wilhelm Kästner aduce en su Bibliotheca Medica, pág. 178, § 7, que la primera edición de la obra fue impresa en Praga, en tamaño 8º; sin embargo, no hemos encontrado evidencia de esta edición ni en la Bibl. Nacional de la República Checa, ni en la Bibl. Municipal de Praga, ni tampoco en los fondos del Inst. Checo de Literatura, siendo un completo misterio. Por último, el Prof. B. E. Durante cita en su bibliografía ésta de Trento cuando se refiere a la obra de Gazola, bien pudiendo ser nuestra edición la primera, aunque no nos atrevemos a asegurarlo. En cualquier caso, tanto en la edición veneciana como en esta trentina se incluye la misma introducción, escrita por "un iluminado" y en la que puede leerse sobre los discursos: "después de la muerte de su autor, me he propuesto sacarlos a la luz". Libro in italiano. Seller Inventory # 35341

De venenis libri due. Gallice primum ab: GREVIN, J.

About this Item: Antweriae, ex officina Chistophori Plantini, 1571. 4to (223 x 155mm). pp. (20), 332, (10), with 92 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum (some damage to right upper corner of the frontcover). First Latin edition of this important work on toxicology. The first French edition was published by Plantin in 1568. The present Latin edition was translated from the French by the Augsburg physician Hieremias Martius. Jacques Grevin (c. 1539-1570) was a French poet and dramatist and disciple of Ronsard. "Grevin was originally educated as a physician, and wrote several works on medical and scientific topics. His two books on poisons, while adding nothing new to toxicological knowledge, showed a distinctively skeptical and realistic attitude towards the writings of both classical and modern authors, with whom Grévin often disagreed. He also casts doubt on several superstitious beliefs, such as the efficacy of amulets against poison, or the turquoise's power to detect the presence of toxic substance. Two books on poisons was published with Grevin's verse translation of 'Theriaka' and 'Alexipharmaka', two didactic poems on poisonous plants and animals by the Hellenistic physician Nicander of Colophon (b. ca. A.D. 275)" ('The Haskell F. Norman library of Science & Medicine' 439, quoting the French edition).The excellent woodcuts show snakes, amphibia, scorpions, fish, a dog suffering from rabies, poisonous plants etc.Durling 2174; Nissen ZBI, 1713.

Luminare maius lumen apothecariorum, & aromatariorum thesaurus: MANILIO, Giovanni Giacomo,

About this Item: Durling 2942; ICCU 005425 (5 copies); USTC 840124 (7 copies, incl. 5 the same). First edition to be edited by Giovanni Marinelli and with commentary by Nicolai Mutoni, of three important late 15th-century treatises on pharmacology and medical botany. The first work, Luminare maius by Giovanni Giacomo Manlio di Bosco (fl. 1490-post 1500), is a commentary on ancient Arabic and Greek pharmacological works, especially the Arabic treatises of Yuhanna Ibn Masawayh known in the West as Mesue the elder (ca. 777-857). It gives instructions for preparing numerous medicines, indicating the quantities of the ingredients and describing each ingredient. The second work, Lumen apothecariorum by Quirico de Augustis de Tortona of Milan (fl. 1486-1497) complements it with descriptions of hundreds of medicinal preparations, including many oils and syrups. The third work, Thesaurus aromatariorum by Paulus de Suardis (fl. 1479-1481), gives recipes for about 500 aromatic medicines, oils, syrups, etc. The three together formed what was probably the most extensive collection of pharmacological recipes of its day.Spine chipped. Water stains in the first half, some spots throughout and the title-page slightly soiled. A good copy. Seller Inventory # HCGG5XFG2RQP

About this Item: Simon Silvius ( Du Bois ), 1528. Rilegato. Condition: molto buono. prima edizione. [10], 31, [5] leaves ; in-folio; full leather binding with gold ornaments and raised bands on the spine. First, very rare, edition of the only book by Emperor Claudius' famed physician, Scribonius. It contains the first reference to the Hippocratic Oath and mentions many remedies used for the most various sanitary purposes by members of the imperial family. Very interesting are the three different recipes for toothpaste (vinegar, honey, radish and salt are used, but also fine grains of glass) and the extensive use of opium in a wide range of drugs, from eyesalve to nasal polyps treatments (a section about opium poisoning is also present). Another prominent ingredient found in many medicaments is wine, and particularly the famed "Falernum" variety. Other curious insights at the Roman-era medicine show a rigorous scientific approach, with some occasional concessions to popular beliefs and to magical and fantastical remedies (like the purificatory rite of drinking one's own blood). Very broad in scope, it covers many diseases and a lot of tested cures, making it one of the most important medicine treatise of his era, along with Celsus' De re medicina and the 'Hippocratic collection'. "Scribonius was the first to describe accurately the preparation of true opium, and the first to reccomend electrotherapy (as provided by live torpedo-fish) for headaches and other nervous afflictions. He was also the earliest known author to mention the Hippocratic oath" (Norman) Norman 429, Adams C-1243, DSB GM 1984.1, Garrison-Morton 1785 Bound with Fernel's "De Abditis" ([16], 181, [3] pp.) and Turini's Opera ([6], 153, [1] leaves), which contains various essays on the cardiovascular system and the urinary system, one about the qualities of spring water and tank water, and one attributed to Dino Del Garbo ("Quaestio Famosissimi Dini De Florentia De Coena et Prandio") about dietary habits. Also present, at the end of the volume, is Turini's "Defensio contra Marcum Antonium Montisinum Geminiatensem, quod non in omni febre putrida conueniat missio sanguinis" (15, [1] leaves). ( KEYWORDS: medico medical doctor medicina medicine salute health sanità recipes ricette prescriptions medicaments medications medicine drugs ointment collirio unguenti celso ippocrate hippocrates celsus falernian wine vino dentifricio toothpaste oppio opiate opium cartolari dino fiorentino blood circulatory heart compositiones ).

About this Item: Viuda e hijos de Ibarra, Madrid, 1790. Condition: Muy bien. 1 Edición. Materia: Libro antiguo del siglo XVIII sobre plantas medicinales encontradas en México (Nueva España) Publicación: Matriti, ex Typographia Ibarrae Heredum, 1790. Primera edición. Descripción física: Cuarto mayor (27 cm.) 3 volúmenes. Primer volumen: Portada, XVIII páginas, 3 hojas, 452 páginas, 1 hoja. Segundo volumen: Portada, 562 páginas, 1 hoja. Tercer volumen: Portada, 571 páginas (error paginación 573 páginas reales) Encuadernación plena piel pasta española decorada con ruedas doradas en planos y lomo con nervios, tejuelos rojo y verde, y dorados. Conservación: Perfecto estado de conservación, amplios márgenes y papel muy limpio. Revisado completo. Magnifica encuadernación de época. Notas: Primera edición de este tratado de plantas medicinales de México, por Francisco Hernández de Toledo, médico, ornitólogo y botánico. Elegido por Felipe IIpara dirigir una expedición científica a América centrada especialmente en el territorio de Nueva España. La expedición contaba con un geógrafo, pintores, botánicos y médicos indígenas. De estos estudios por diferentes motivos solo se pudo publicar parte entre 1635 y 1651. Un siglo después una nueva compilación hecha por el médico Casimiro Gómez Ortega, basada en material adicional encontrado en el Colegio Imperial de los Jesuitas de Madrid yrelacionando las expediciones científicas del XVIII con la del famoso médico de Felipe II Francisco Hernández dan lugar a esta obra. Otros datos: Esta obra de Francisco Hernández impresa en el taller de Ibarra en 1790, perteneció a José de Ezpeleta y Galdeano, que entre otras cosas, fue virrey de Nueva Granada de 1789 a 1796, La firma que aparece en el volumen primero ha sido cotejada con la de varios escritos que custodia el archivo del Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid. Ezpeleta fue un virrey admirado por todos, aún hoy se le ensalza en medios colombianos. Fué aficcionado a la botánica y amigo y protector de Mutis, que le dedicó el género Espeletia. Es muy probable, casi seguro que Ezpeleta adquiriese el libro siendo virrey de Nueva Granada. Las fechas y las anotaciones hechas por el del precio en rústica y con encuadernación asi lo indican. La encuadernación es, desde luego, palaciega. Palau: 113529. PSSS1. Seller Inventory # L2639
