NLM/Durling 2482; Wellcome 3277; USTC 170037 and 170045. FIRST EDITION, very rare. USTC lists but two libraries (Paris and Yale Univ.) for the second work. Posthumous collection of treatises of the French doctor Houllier (c. 1498/1504-1562) edited by Antoine Valet (+ 1607). The first work "De morbis internis" deal with various diseases (plague, fievers, phtisis, asthma...) and the way to cure them, the "Materia chirurgica" is about drugs to use to avoid surgery and the last "De rhemediis [...] in Galeni libros" is a summary of remedies extracted from Galenus (129-c. 200/216). Houllier became professor of medicine in 1538 and collaborator of Jean Tagault (+ 1560) who asked him in 1543 to complete his "Institutiones chirurgicae". He was also dean of the Medicine Faculty in 1546 and 1547 and was the teacher a.o. of Louis Duret.
