Adams C-1249; Wellcome I, 1405; NLM/Durling 921; Waller 1851; Garrison-Morton 20 (for 1st ed.) -"The De Medicina is the oldest medical document after the Hippocratic writings. Written about AD 30 it remains the greatest medical treatise from ancient Rome and the first Western history of medicine. Celsus's superb literary style won him the title of Cicero medicorum. De medicina deals with diseases treated by diet and regimen and with those amenable to drugs and surgery. The manuscript... was lost during the Middle Ages and re-discovered in Milan in 1443." (Garrison-Morton, 20). Celsus' work has gone through many editions, translations, expansions, and adaptations since its first appearance in print in Florence in 1478. This is the first Plantin edition of De re Medica with the commentary of Thriverius or Jeremias De Drijvere, professor of anatomy at the University of Louvain and one of the most productive medical authors in the Low Countries. The last two books with the commentary by one of his students, Boudewijn Ronsse, who became a doctor in Gouda. - Visit our website to see more images!
