About this Item: Francesco Bindoni & Maffeo Pasini, Venice, 1527. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 4to (194 x 136 mm). Signatures: A-L4, 44 unnumbered leaves. [Colophon:] Venetiis in aedibus Francisci Bindoni, ac Maphei Pasini summa dilige[n]tia impressus. Anno domini millesimo quingentesimo septimo. Mensis Iulii. Roman letter with title in gothic on A1r. 8-line white on black initial on A2 and one other small initial. Recent vellum boards. A carefully washed copy, some light browning, a few wormholes filled, mostly marginal but affecting a few letters. Provenance: No early ownership marks; old underlining on f3r -f3v. Walter Pagel library (paperslip on pastedown). ---- Wellcome 4102; Garrison-Morton 2365; CNCE 60434. - FIRST EDITION, falsely dated 1507 in the colophon; another issue with the same false date has the imprint Parma, Francesco Ugoleto and Antonio Viotti. The edition of 1532 was previously thought to be the first, and further editions were printed in 1536, re-issued in 1559, and 1563 and a French translation was published in 1565. "This early work on syphilis (the 4th after Grünpeck, Leoniceno and Lopez de Villalobos) includes a description of the neurological manifestations of the disease (Garrison-Morton). It is a comprehensive description of the symptoms and effects of syphilis. Massa believed that although usually contracted by sexual intercourse, syphilis could also arise spontaneously without contact. He discusses the role of diet, sleep and exercise together, and the use of drugs, bloodletting, leeches, and guaiac in the treatment of syphilis (Heirs of Hippocrates 195, describing the 1532 edition). Niccolò Massa studied at Padua and was professor of anatomy at Venice. He is best known as one of the earliest anatomists (with Benedetti and Berengario), to perform dissections, as he states in his Anatomiae liber introductorius, first published in 1536.
