Folio (290 x 195mm). [8], 215pp., 57pp., [1]. Engraved woodcut printer’s device of Cavallum with compass under motto "Labore et constantia" (device also used by Freemasons). Title printed in red and black. Double column. 18th-century vellum (title browned, some dampstaining throughout, marginal worming lightly worn). Early ownership inscriptions on front endpaper dated 1724, 1731 and 1744 and dated 1749 on verso of final blank. "Ex Libris Prosperi Selli Medicinae et Chirurgiae" above pictorial wood-engraved ex-libris by Leo Wyatt for Lord Norwich on pastedown. Polverino sought to find accurate cures for diseases. Giovanni Girolamo Polverino was an influential professor of medicine and philosophy in Naples. This work, originally published in 1600 in Venice under the title De curandis juxta hodiernum usum. sought to find accurate cures for diseases and improve medical practice. This volume with its ample 18th-century inscriptions and some scattered annotations above printed marginalia gives the book a valued sense. Good, solid book within the tradition of 17th-century medicine coming out of Italy during the waning of the Renaissance, Polverino’s ideas were contemporary to Galileo and Descartes.
