Heirs of Hippocrates 449; Waller 8890; Garrison-Morton 2273 (first edition); NLM/Krivatsy 11055; Norman 1932 (first edition). - The second, enlarged edition (the first contained only 12 engravings) and almost as rare as the original edition printed in Naples 11 years earlier. "The first textbook of surgical pathology. It treats of all kinds of swelling under the 'abscess' and describes neoplasms of the genital organs and sarcomata of bones. Tumours of the breast are classified into four groups, the section devoted to them being one of the most important in the book. This was also the first book to include illustrations of lesions with the text" (Garrison-Morton).
Severino's tumor pathology was perhaps the best: He described tumors of the male and female genital organs and gave accounts of massive neoplasms of the bones. He classified breast tumors under four headings and his section on `mammarum strumae`contains one of the best early discussions of malignancy and benignancy in breast tumors." (Norman).
"The book's twenty plates are among the first to depict pathological lesions and to include diseased organs as well as complete views of the individual with the tumor. He includes all manner of tumors and swellings under the term 'abscessus' and describes their surgical treatment in detail. In the chapter on breast neoplasms he delineates four types and differentiates quite clearly between the concept of benign and malignant tumors" (Heirs of Hippocrates 449).
