Second volume of the book by this famous Renaissance doctor.
Johann Schenck von Graffenberg (1530-1598) studied medicine in Tübingen (Bade-Wurtemberg) and graduated as a doctor in 1554. After practising for some time in Strasbourg, he obtained a position as pensioned doctor in Freiburg, where he would finish his career. He was well versed in the literary history of medicine and had begun, following Gesner’s example, a complete medical library that he never completed. Ses Observationum medicarum rararum, novarum, admirabilium et monstrosarum… Tomus unus et alter… [First and second volumes… of rare, new, admirable, and extraordinary medical observations…] (Francfort, J. Rhodius, 1600, 2 octavo volumes for the first complete edition) contains a large quantity of pathological facts excerpted from different authors and from the author’s own experience.
The book is in good overall condition. The period binding is very solid.
There are no missing pages.
There are some traces of dampstains and worming that aren’t serious.
Rare and important book on the history of medicine at the end of the 16th century.
