Francisci Valleriolae Doctoris Medici Observationum Medicinalium lib.vj. Denuo editi, & emendatiores quam Antea inlucem emißi: In quibus multorum grauissimorum morborum historiæ, Eorundem causæ, symptomata atque euentus, tum Etiam curationes miro, vtili & compendioso Ordine describuntur. Adi&ctlig;tis duobus Indicibus, quorum priorem Obseruationum ipsi operi Præfiximus: posteriorem rerum & verborum ad finem Remisimus ad faciliorem studiosorum vsum.

pp.[xvi (not paginated)]+399+[xxix (not paginated)]; *, a i, k t, v, x a, Aa Cc8, Dd6; wood-engraved decorated initials throughout, wood-engraved head-pieces and some tailpieces to the chapters; side-notes throughout, no half-title called for. Early but not contemporary, stippled paper-covered boards, with hand-written paper label, sprinkled edges, title-page laid down and lower half lacking, but supplied in good pen facsimile, foxing and browning throughout, mostly fairly light, a good copy with large margins nonetheless.

*An updated edition of a work published originally in 1573, and apparently rare in any printing: WorldCat locates only one copy of the 1573 edition, in Lyons, and none of this; no copy on COPAC. From the library of Docteur Cordes, with his ownership stamp, dated '22 Sept. 89' on the facsimile portion of the title-page.
