Second edition. Minor loss from corners, small paper remnant on spine head. 1719 Full-Leather. [xxiv], 765, [37] pp. Full calf, red morocco spine label, gilt titles, gilt tooled compartments, marbled endpapers. Latin text. A medical work by the Venetian physician and botanist whose descriptions of coffee and banana plants are the earliest written records in European literature. Prospero Alpinus oversaw the botanical garden at Padua, and wrote the first significant history of Egyptian medicine (see Garrison-Morton 6468). This work advocates the Methodic School of medicine of ancient Greece and Rome, which focused on treatment based on generalities of disease rather than history of individual patients.
