Nicolaas Fonteyn (1589-1667), Dutch physician, anatomist and poet dedicated this collection of medical studies to King Louis XIII. He is considered the first to have studied the amyloid substance whose accumulation is considered today decisive in the appearance of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease.
The work consists of 46 medical texts describing rare, difficult or extraordinary surgical and clinical cases, including neurology cases, some in the form of letters exchanged with doctors and personalities of the time (Zacutus Lusitanus, famous Portuguese Jewish physician (1575-1642), Paul Bodot, bishop of Arras, Gisbertus ab Isendoorn (1601-1657), professor at the University of Harderwijk, etc.).
Bound with the coat of arms of J. Gomez de la Cortina (1808-1868), one of the greatest Spanish bibliophiles of the 19th century. With the motto "Fallitur Hora Legendo" (Reading makes you forget the time).
