18 x 12 cm.
Important Paris edition of the Latin translation (from Greek) of works related to Hippocrates, by the Saxon humanist and friend of Erasmus: Janus Cornarius (1500-1558).
In 1532 Cornarius held lectures at Rostock on Hippocrates and Aristotle, and in 1557 he was given the chair of Medicine in Jena.
This edition was published in the same year (1546) as the Basel edition by Froben and Episcopius.
Contemporaries of Erasmus I, 339/340.
Beautiful full leather binding, probably coeval or just posthumous.
Perfect joints and headbands.
Spine with 4 ribs, with burgundy label bearing the author and title in a square golden frame, with golden decorations and double line on the boxes.
Please note that the corners of the front board are slightly worn.
Preserved in excellent condition.
Generally well preserved sheets with many old notes near the text frame and various big decorated drop caps.
On the title page there is a small old professional restoration, with paper integration, near the removed stamp.
Original endpapers preserved.
A few words in the text of the colophon are faded.
However, a facsimile copy of the colophon is given (to allow better consultation of the page) on antique paper, which will be attached to the work (see photos).
Work preserved in good overall condition.
