Careful restorations in some upper corners or margins affecting text only on S4 but without loss, a few small stains in lower margin, faint trace of an old library stamp removed from last page. Modern dark red calf, inner gilt dentelles. FIRST COMBINED EDITION of the author?s De urinis and De pulsibus, both of which had been published separately once before (in 1483 and 1484 respectively). This edition was edited by Venantius Mutius, with a commentary by Gentilis de Fuligneo. The twelfth century French physician Gilles de Corbeil transplanted Salernitan medicine to Paris and gave expression to its most important achievements in attractive form. He was a pupil at the medical schools of Salerno and Montpellier, and later went to Paris where he was physician to Philippe Auguste of France (1165?1213). He wrote two works in verse form on the two principal diagnostic tools available to physicians of the time, the pulse and the urine. The Liber de urinis constitutes a compendium of uroscopy mainly on the lines of the Regula urinarum of Maurus. It remained the authoritative textbook on uroscopy until the sixteenth century.
