I. VD 16 H 362; Heirs of Hippocrates 74. EDITIO PRINCEPS, AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE, of Hildegard von Bingen's treatise on natural history and medical treatments (written in the mid twelfth century). Alongside this the printer Johann Schott included other medical works with various misattributions: of the five books allegedly by Oribasius, only book 4 contains the second book of his Euporista : books 1-3 are excerpted from Apuleius' De herbis and the so-called Dynamidia Hippocratis, while book 5 is an alphabetical reworking of material from Dioscorides. The Dieta Theodori is not by Theodorus Priscianus. The Esculapius text, dating mostly from the 6th century A.D., is a compilation containing sections of Caelius Aurelianus' Responsiones.
II. VD 16 T 840. EDITIO PRINCEPS of the medical writings of Theodorus Priscianus (though attributed on the title-page to Octavius Horatianus), a 4th-century physician in Constantinople, together with three sections on surgery from Abu Al-Qasim's encyclopaedic and influential Method of Medicine, written in the late 10th century, relating to cauterisation, phlebotomy and orthopaedics, with numerous illustrations of surgical devices, amputations and other medical procedures. The Latin text of Al-Qasim on surgery (translated by Gerardus Cremonensis in Toledo) was first printed in 1497 and then 1500, and the present edition follows the illustrations from the 1500 edition. However, some of the blocks were previously used by Schott in his edition of Gersdorff's, Feldtbuch der Wundtartzney (1517). - Visit our website for additional images and information!
