H.P.Kraus booklabel. Fourth Edition of this famous work, which long remained the standard authority on the subject. Mercuriale’s systematic study of gymnastics and related games as practised by the ancient Greeks and Romans also examines the therapeutic value of exercise. A physician and professor at Padua, Bologna, and Pisa, Mercuriale was one of the first therapists to remark that exercise could have both beneficial and harmful results depending on a variety of factors, including technique, intensity and duration. The first edition, printed by Giunta in 1569, was illustrated by a single folding engraved plan. To the second edition of 1573 was added an attractive series of fine woodcuts, showing boxing, wrestling, dancing, discus throwing, weight lifting, balancing, &c. The same blocks were used for subsequent Giunta editions, as here, as well as for the 1672 Amsterdam edition printed by Frisius. On the title-page of the latter, the woodcuts are attributed to Christoforo Coriolano, a craftsman from Nuremberg, who is further described in the preface to the reader as the illustrator of Vasari’s Vite de’ piu eccellenti pittori, scultori, e archit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Asklepiades von Bithynien (Asclepiades of Bthynia) =
Icon. med. philosoph., 4. - Joh. Sambucus. - Antwerpen, C. Plantin, 1601, Folio, 320 x 216 mm etwas beschnitten, feiner Abzug. Asclepiades of Bithynia (124-56 B.C. - "After the fall of Corinth (146 B.C.), Greek physicians migrated to Rome. There, before the advent of Asclepiades, the Greek physicians were despised. He was born at Prusa of Bithynia in Asia Minor, and travelled much when young, and seems at first to have settled at Rome as a rhetorician. In that profession he did not succeed, but he acquired great reputation as a physician. Asclepiades may be said to have established Greek medicine in Rome on a respectable footing. His remedies included change of diet, friction, bathing, and exercise. Gumpert hat preserved what is left of his writings in the Greek edition "Fragmenta. Digessit et curavit C.G. Gumpert" (Vinariae 1794). The medical writers Galen and Aretaeus, both of whom lived in the second century A.D., credit Asclepiades of Bithynia with being the first individual to perform an elective (non-emergency) tracheotomy.His pupils were very numerous, and the school formed by them was called the Methodical. He is said to have died at an advanced age. See R.M.Green, Ascleiades, his life and writings, New Haven, 1955, which includes a translation of Gumpert's Fragmenta. Asklepiades von Bithynien, "ein im ersten Jahrhundert v. Chr. in Rom lebender hochberühmter Arzt, ist der Begründer des "methodischen" Systems. Vereinzelte Versuche, z.B. die des ARCHAGATHUS, der Medicin bei den Römern Eingang zu verschaffen, waren an dem Hasse der rauhen Republikaner vom Schl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Calderón, Melchor:
[Np, but likely Madrid. nd, but ca. 1601].. [2],24pp. Folio. Dbd. Dampstained and soiled, top and bottom edges worn. Worm holes throughout, affecting a few words on each page. Contemporary underlining and marginal lines throughout, contemporary handwritten folio numbers on each recto. Still a good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. An extremely rare treatise which considers the question of whether rebellious Indians in Chile should become slaves. Addressed to the Viceroy and Audiencia of Peru, the work discusses whether slavery of conquered Indians is just or not, reviewing arguments on both sides of the question. Calderón approaches the problem in an intriguing manner by providing separate justifications, each in its own individual section of the text, for enslaving the Indians from the various points of view of the King, the Kingdom, and the Church. In turn, the author then provides responses to these various assertions, promoting the view that such slavery would be unjust. The last pages of the text consist of final responses and commentary. Calderón, the Canon of the Cathedral of Santiago, also served as Commissar of the Holy Office and the Holy Cross, and the General Vicar of the Bishopric of Santiago. He addresses the TRATADO... to the Viceroy of Peru, as well as numerous representatives of the royal government and the Catholic Church who have convened to consider strategies for waging war against the Araucanian Indians of Southern Chile. The campaign to conquer these Indians was one of the most difficult and drawn-out conflicts between Europeans and American Indi … [Click Below for Full Description]
