Description:

4to (225 x 165mm). [8], 220 pages. Woodcut printer’s device of putti singing music to title, historiated woodcut chapter head and tail-pieces throughout. Original paper wrappers, ms. title to spine "ZEVIANI del FLATO" (front hinge split and front cover falling away, some minor soiling). Good copy of a rare work on hypochondria and its influence on the psyche in its original form. Neapolitan physician Zeviani actively pursued medicine and a publishing career in Verona. This pioneering monograph on hypochondria was the first of its kind published in his native city in 1755; the second edition appeared shortly after in 1761. Zeviani’s publications remain rare in major medical bibliographies. Zeviani’s first edition work on hypochondria which tied hysteria to gastro-intestinal problems, specifically flatulence with sadness, the first real study and proponent of this subject. Zeviani believed the hypochondriac, or hysteric, had certain gastro-intestinal disorders, specifically bloating, which could be tied to their mental health. The fashion for being moody, extremely sensitive, and somewhat ailing (as opposed to unfashionably healthy) swept north from Italy in the 1500s. In the height of the Renaissance, a melancholic plague found artistic outlet in poems and plays, as well as, formed a veritable character type common to society. As part of this worldly image, the hypochondriac fulfilled the role of creative madness whose deep and sometimes violent emotions were capable of spreading inspiration. To come to understand the intricacies of those who were popularly gloomy, Zeviani debates the link between a distending, gaseous body and a miserable spirit in this work. He was particularly interested in the bodily phenomenon of the burp, in which the abnormal presence of extra gas is released. Zeviani recommends reasons for certain foods in the diet to temper the "passions of the soul." He notes, "Garlic and onions are not recommended because they are inclined to putrefaction." His study describes quite simply the merits of a good diet, exercise, and some other unusual therapies, including blood-letting. A distinguished physician, Zeviani remains, on the Italian branch, a celebrated father of psychiatry. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description a spese di Marco Moroni,, In Verona, 1761. Cm. 23, pp. (4) 208. Con bei capolettera istoriati. Legatura coeva in cartonato alla rustica con titoli monoscritti al dorso. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato, in barbe. Opera dedicata dall’autore a G.B. Morgagni. Seconda edizione (la stessa citata da De Renzi a V, 758), rara e non riportata dalle maggiori bibliografie. Vasta monografia su un soggetto che si presta curiosamente ad indagini che sconfinano nella filosofia e soprattutto nell’etica. Accanto ad una ricerca squisitamente scientifica l’origine della flatulenza viene infatti imputata anche a cause insospettabili quali la povertà di spirito. Con il celebre trattato di G.B. Careno "De aeris ingressu in ventricolum " e l’incompleto lavoro di G.L. Marugi "Sulle flatulenze " la presente deve dichiararsi come la migliore ricerca sullo strepito degli intestini.

Book Description A spese di Marco Moroni libraro, in Verona, 1761. In-8° (217x153mm), pp. (6), 208, (1) bianca, bella legatura coeva in p. pelle marrone marmorizzata con dorso adorno di titolo in oro su tassello, filetti, decori a catenella e fiorellini in oro. Unghie decorate in oro, tagli rossi, risguardi marmoreggiati. Segnacolo serico di colore verde. Dedica a stampa al Morgagni. Capilettera incisi figurati. Esemplare assai bello. Seconda edizione (la prima è del 1755), rara e non riportata dalle principali bibliografie mediche, di questa singolare monografia sul meteorismo, la cui origine viene imputata, oltre che a ragioni propriamente mediche o alimentari, anche a cause insospettabili quali la povertà di spirito. L'autore discetta sul nesso tra meteorismo, ipocondria e melanconia, del rutto, di fenomeni correlati alla cattiva digestione o all'abnorme presenza di gas nell'apparato gastrointestinale, della cura di detti fenomeni e della dieta da seguire, delle passioni dell'animo, dei purganti, ecc. Lo Zeviani (San Michele di Verona, 1725-Verona, 1808), illustre medico e scienziato, fu tra i primi a occuparsi organicamente in Italia di mortalità infantile. Egli riconobbe fra l'altro nell'uso di battezzare i bambini con acqua fredda una delle cause più importanti di malattie infantili. Blake, p. 499. De Renzi, V, 758. Laehr, II, p. 485. Bethesda, 499.
