TOSI GIOVANNI (Tonsus Ioannes).
Io. Dominicum Tarinum, 1596. Cm. 32, pp. (16) 235 (1). Grande stemma sabaudo inciso al frontespizio, ogni pagina inquadrata in un filetto. Testate, bei capolettera e fregi tipografici nel testo. Bella legatura seicentesca in piena pergamena molle con fregi in oro centrali e filetti in oro ad inquadrare i piatti. Titoli ms. al dorso. Qualche piccola mancanza alle estremità dei piatti, ma bell'esemplare fresco, genuino e marginoso, a carte perfettamente candide. L'autore fu scrittore e uomo politico, grande erudito del suo tempo, nato a Milano nel 1528 e morto nel 1601. Prima edizione di un'opera significativa nell'ambito dell'editoria piemontese del '500, dedicata alla vita di Emanuele Filiberto (1528-1580). Come la gran parte degli esemplari censiti, anche il presente è privo (verosimilmente dall'origine) del ritratto. Non comune, soprattutto in tale stato di conservazione ed impreziosito da una legatura affascinante ed assai decorativa.

VAN FOREEST, Pieter
Leyde, Ex Officina Plantiniana, 1596. ______ Format : In-8. Collation : (32), 521, (15) pp. Reliure : Vélin rigide, plats très ornés. (Reliure de l'époque.). ____ Première édition. Pieter van Foreest (1522-1597), appelé l'Hippocrate néerlandais, a été élève, puis confrère de Vésale. Il a publié, durant vingt ans, une trentaine de livres de ses observations médicales. Son oeuvre est considérée comme un résumé complet des connaissances médicales au XVIe siècle. Le présent ouvrage, en première édition, concerne le système urinaire. Il est illustré par un bois gravé, assez sommaire, montrant des calculs. Ex-libris manuscrit de l'époque sur la page de titre : Bartholomeus Merelmi. (?) qui a rédigé quelques notes savantes dans les marges. Très bel exemplaire joliment relié et de toute fraîcheur. *-------* First edition. Pieter van Foreest was a pupil and colleague of Vesalius. Because of his thoughtful therapeutic approach to patient care, Pieter van Foreest is often considered the Dutch Hippocrates. He began publishing his Observationes et curationes in 1588, usually issuing three or four books at a time. Ultimately his books became a comprehensive series on disease, which ultimately included more than thirty-two volumes. The series reflected an extensive summary of sixteenth century medical knowledge, and was frequently cited by later authors. Very fine contemporary binding.
