I. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST SYSTEMATIC TREATISE ON PATHOLOGY, a cornerstone of French Renaissance medicine, THE GREATEST MEDICAL TEXT OF THE PERIOD which profoundly influenced the practice of medicine throughout Europe. The first part is the earliest treatise devoted to physiology and using that term in its modern sense. The second part is the first medical work to be called a text of "Pathology." In this section the science is treated in its general and its special aspects, just as in a complete modern work. The book contains the only contemporary portrait of Fernel (1497-1558), court physician to Henri II and his queen Catherine de Medici; underneath the portrait is a couplet in Greek by Guillaume Plancy, the first biographer of Fernel.

II. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION. Contains excerpts in Greek and Latin from De flatibus and other works by Hippocrates as well as a dedicatory letter from the author to the consuls and senators of Arles. Francisco Valleriola (1504-1580) certainly practiced in Arles, as the dedicatory epistle of this book attests, nobilissimis atque prudentissimis inclytae urbis Arelatae consulibus, senatuique universo amplissimo [to the very noble and very wise consuls of the illustrious city of Arles, and to all his very ample senate]. Later, he taught and practiced in Valence in the Dauphiné, before filling one of the first chairs of the Faculty of Turin. He was a staunch follower of the doctrines of Galen. References: Adams V, 209; Osler 4153; Wellcome I, 6458.
*Isaac Schaller (died 1586) was a noted physician and astronomer in Nuremberg who attended the Universities of Wittenberg and Tübingen in the 1540s and later served as the physician to Augustus the Elector of Saxony (1526–1586) in Dresden, where he died. Schaller may have been quite a book collector and scholar: his ownership signature has been found on a copies of the landmark works of Andreas Vesalius' De Humani Corporis Fabrica, 1543, and Nicolaus Copernicus' De Revolutionibus, also printed in 1543. There were numerous ties between Schaller's family and Philipp Melanchthon: Schaller's uncle, Caspar Schaller, was a minister and early follower of Melanchthon; Caspar's brother, Hieronymus Schaller, also a physician, married Melanchthon's grand-daughter; both Hieronymus and Isaac's father Bartholomeus Schaller attended the University of Wittenberg in the 1520s; and at least ten letters written between 1520 and 1545 survive between Melanchthon and Schaller's father (see, Michael J. North and Laura Hartman, National Library of Medicine, online blog, Dec. 16, 2014).
