Titre : Methodus Studii Medici emaculata & ...
Éditeur : Leiden: Jacob a Wetstein, 1759.
Date d'édition : 1759
2 volumes and the index in 1 volume, 4to, pp. (xviii), 572, engraved frontispiece by Wandelaar and 3 folding plates; 2 leaves, pp. 573?1118, (6) errata; 48. Two half-titles, two titles printed in red and black, woodcut ornaments. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked preserving the original gilt spine (but the gilt rubbed), new morocco label, corners neatly repaired, red edges. Fore-edge of upper board rubbed, and paper slightly browned, but a good copy. First edition of this title, an important work in medical history and bibliography. Boerhaave?s introduction to medical literature, Methodus discendi medicinam, 1726, is here completely re-worked and much improved and enlarged by his pupil Albrecht von Haller. The classified bibliography of medical books has been brought up from the original 500 to about 10,000 titles, and ?is remarkable for those sententious critical aperçus for which Haller is so justly famous? (Garrison). The usefulness of this enormous publication is greatly enhanced by the addition of Pereboom?s index of authors and subjects which appeared several years later and is seldom found with the main work. See G&M 6746: ?The edition of 1751, including the additions of Haller, is the best.? Fulton, The great medical bibliographers, p. 60. Lindeboom, Bibliographia Boerhaaviana, 98 and 101. Osler 1116.
