CONDITION OF THE BOOK:

Complete work
Collation (2b) + (16) + 286 + (2) + 32 + (2b).

Work in relatively good condition, some acidified pages especially in the middle of the book, otherwise it has hardly any problems, some sporadic stain and little else. The last 2 pages of the end have been restored as they had minor gaps on the edges.



ABOUT THE WORK:

On disease prediction, the work tries to leave behind the prediction of diseases. This work is true to its time and a good example of how modern science is being born. It reflects well the attempts to break with some beliefs rooted since ancient times as ancient methods of predicting disease and death considered by Hippocrates.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Alpini was born in Marostica, near Vicenza, in the Republic of Venice. In his youth he served in the Milanese army, but in 1574 he decided to study medicine in Padua. After taking his doctor's degree in 1578, he settled as a physician in Campo San Pietro, a small town in the Paduan territory. But his tastes were botanical, and to extend his knowledge of exotic plants he travelled to Egypt in 1580 as physician to George Emo or Hemi, the Venetian consul in Cairo.

De medicina egyptiorum (Venice, 1591) contains the first reference to the coffee plant published in Europe.
