About this Item: Juxtà Exemplar Londinense. Ludgduni [Lyon], Sumptibus Dominici Bellegattae., 1720. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 12mo; pp. [xii], 192. EXCEPTIONALLY SCARCE LYON IMPRINT OF THIS FAMOUS MEDICAL WORK. No date but circa 1720, recorded in a single copy (US National Library of Medicine; WorldCat lists further copies but research reveals that none are the Lyon imprint). Jackson was an English (Amsterdam-based) medical practitioner; his encyclopaedic little textbook Enchiridion Medicum, first published in London in 1695, went through numerous editions across Europe through the 18th century, this perhaps being the most scarce. Good condition: original leather covers scuffed and worn, spin panels coming loose; binding holding firm; pages clean and bright throughout. Seller Inventory # 536

Nel 1793, a causa di una forte siccità e di una serie di errori economici del Governo, Palermo e tutta la regione circostante si trovarono in piena carestia. Dalle campagne, masse di poveri si riversarono nelle città, complicando ancora di più la situazione. Per alleviare la fame, numerosi signori si dedicarono alla beneficenza. Nella sola Cefalù il vescovo Francesco Vanni e il barone Giuseppe Agnello si prodigarono per salvare il paese dalla carestia e due iscrizioni ricordano il loro operato. La carestia portò una gravissima epidemia, che il Candiloro descriveva in questo libro, suggerendo anche metodi di cura. [Mira I p.165 questa ediz. e dell'Aut.: "nacque in Cefalù nel 1761, ove compì i suoi studi e ancor giovine da m. Castelli venne eletto a professore di eloquenza. Abbracciò lo stato ecclesiastico e già sacerdote si stabilì a Palermo, ove fece il corso intiero di medicina e ottenuta la laurea col dott. Berna proseguì la clinica. Nel 1811 ebbe la cattedra di etica in questa università. Fece un viaggio in Napoli e in Francia, tornato ricco di nuove teorie, morì addì 4 gen.1829".

About this Item: Apud Gulielmum Rouillium, London, 1550. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. MEDICAL TREATMENTS IN MEDIEVAL TIMES WITH EXTENSIVE ANNOTATIONS 8vo. pp. 910 (i.e. 920), (xvi). a-z8, A-Z8, 2a-2l8, 2m4, *8. Roman and Italic letter, Rouille’s woodcut eagle and serpent device on title, white on black woodcut crible and historiated initials, "Ex biblioth. D. Brix de Wahlberg architat, Furstenberg" at head of title (Bonifacius Brix de Walhberg doctor to the Furstenberg family), Joh. Jac Hertebach (‘and friends’ in Greek) 1622 with price, and, "Ex libris Michaelis Capits Medici ** 1680," beneath, "Georgius ** **" crossed out in earlier hand beneath, extensive marginal annotations throughout in a near contemporary hand, further notes and references on fly leaves and table. Light age yellowing, very light marginal waterstain on a few leaves, the occasional mark or spot, small single worm hole in last section of work. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in contemporary pigskin over bevelled wooden boards, covers triple blind ruled to a panel design, outer panel of upper cover filled with blind roll of biblical figures, central panel with blind acorn tools, lower cover with blind saints roll in outer and central panels, remains of clasps, brass catches, spine with three raised bands ruled in blind. The wooden boards have expanded vertically over time pushing through the upper and lower edges, covers rubbed. A most interesting copy, heavily annotated in an early hand, of this compilation of texts by the Montpellier physician Bernard de Gordon, including his most famous Lilium medicinae and five other shorter treatises. One on prognostication illustrates the importance of astrology and especially the concern of earlier physicians to predict the course of an illness. An encyclopedia of diseases with their symptoms, causes, effects, and treatments, the Lilium gained wide circulation in scores of manuscripts, in translations from Latin into French, Hebrew, Irish, and Spanish and, from 1480 on, in a dozen printed editions. It was cited for three centuries, as an authoritative text on ailments ranging from headache to gout, from epilepsy to leprosy, from insanity to impotence. Bernard de Gordon flourished in the late Middle Ages in the era when university education first evolved in the training of European physicians. Fragmentary details of his life and medical influence are known from seven books, particularly his extensive text Lilium Medicine and from Chaucer's reference to him in the Canterbury Tales. Chaucer lists Bernard de Gordon as one whose writings were part of the core curriculum of the best-trained European doctors of medieval Europe. He was one of that small group of medieval physicians who reverently followed Galenic lore which had endured for a thousand years yet who began to challenge its details and to experiment clinically with new methods of treatment. In his writings, Bernard de Gordon made the first reference to spectacles and to the hernial truss. His writings also contained detailed desiderata for the ethical best practice of medicine of his day, extending the principles of both Hippocrates and Haly ibn Abbas. Unlike many of the surviving writings of other medieval medical teachers, his texts have within them a tone of humility and acknowledged fallibility. A most interesting copy having belonged to a series of physicians until the eighteenth century, one of whom made extensive notes. Gordon’s origins are a matter of contention. Initially held to be Scottish, a French origin has been claimed and Italian inferred. BM STC Fr. C16th. Adams G 871. Durling 542. Baudrier IX 169. Wellcome 1 801. Shaaber G352. Latin.

About this Item: Lyon, Guillaume Rouillé, 1550. Couverture rigide. Condition: Très bon. Edition originale. 8vo, 910 (ie 920) and (16) pages ; XVIIe calf (spine restored). Exceptionnal copy of this influencal medieval medical works from the library of one of the earliest paracelist, Adam von Bodenstein, early editor and translator of Paracelcius's corpus. The copy bears his autograph signature on title page, different mottos in latine and greek ("Discendo ac ducente deo", "Nihil sine numine faustum prosperumque" and "anerou kai aperou"), and the date of 1557. "Following a stay in Vienna in 1551 Bodenstein was, at least until 1559, in the service of Count Palatinate Ottheinrich, a sovereign favorably disposed toward alchemical Paracelsianism. He appointed Bodenstein in 1553 to the position of “servant by order of the house” and “admonished” him several times around 1556 to read Paracelsus. In part because of certain successful therapies with Paracelsian medicine in Basel in 1556, Bodenstein became, about this time, receptive to the medicina nova of Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (Paracelsus). Whether he was already disseminating “Paracelsian thinking and writings” in the “1550s” (Nutton, 1995, p. 112) remains uncertain; there are no testimonies or proofs of documents. However, undoubtedly Bodenstein’s “Paracelsian turn” combined with an orientation toward transmutational alchemy. Encouraged by an itinerant alchemist (possibly Denis Zecaire) and two friends from Basel, the councillor of the margrave Ludwig Wolfgang of Habsburg and the university mathematician Johannes Acronius. Bodenstein made himself out to be an expert on the philosopher’s stone (1559–1560) and published Paracelsian writings from 1560 until his death." (Complete Dictionary of Scientific Biography) In 1557, Bodenstein came back at Basel where he influenced Alexander von Schuten and Michael Towites at the revolutionnary Paracelsism. The date of 1557 is especially interesting since at this time Bodenstein is not yet entirely Paracelsist as proves some of his handwritting annotations in margins which are still galenic, and sometimes Paracelsist. Indeed, at the pages 334-335, Bodenstein notes in latine about the dolor at the teeth : "Ardigenis remedium. Pyrenbrum (?) acerrimo aceto ad dies 40 condito, terito & reponito, usu (? igente reliquis cera obduratis et probe munitis, ipsum dolentem praemundatum, hoc pharmaco integito et hora interposita digitis extrahito, aut scalpello exigito. Tithymali radices in vino ad dimidias coquito & bis in mense collinito ac numquam dolebis. hec Ardigenes ut Galenus testatur" [The remedy of Ardigene. Dissolve pyrembrum (?) In very acidic vinegar for 40 days, crush it and let it rest, the rest having been wax-hardened and well prepared, coat the painful tooth that has been previously washed and afterwards One hour, remove the medicine with your fingers or take it out with a scalpel. Cook tithymal roots in wine until half and apply them twice in the month, and you will never suffer. Of this, Ardigenes as Galen testifies.]Nev However, Bodenstein seems have interest in some diseases treated by Paracelsus like epilepsy (page 224 citing Avicenne) and kidney stone. At the page 580 on "De lapide renum", Bodenstein notes « Calorem imprimum idem praestare significant herniae » (Hernias announce the same thing as too hot heat), and page 585 :« Mn 143 de Trall. testatur melancholiam calculum et causare passim ». (Mn 143 Alexandre de Tralles attests that melancholia sometimes also causes a kidney stone). We can note also a very long marginal note at the page 639 on an extraordinary case of a dead fetus in her mother's womb whose skeleton was expelled at the birth of a second pregnancy, 20 additional manuscript references at the final table of contents and some overlinings at pages 306/309, 344, 356, 367, 620-621, 630, 671, 687, 723-726. Thus, if Bodenstein is still largely influenced by Galen, we note that he is interested in a new therapeutic and several diseases studied by Paracelsus. The Gordon's Lilium is a very important/key medica. Seller Inventory # ABE-1488718087875
