[12] 318, [14] pp.Rare first combined edition of two medical works by Jacob Horst (1537-1600), professor of medicine at the Julius University in Helmstadt, first published separately by the same publisher in 1593 and appearing here for the second time. The first work is of special interest, being a rare early treatise on dentistry. In it Horst tried to solve the famous mystery of the golden tooth. The second work is on sleepwalking, a subject which from old seems to have greatly concerned parents and teachers, since much attention was given to it in early medical and educational literature. There current publication however seems to be largely overlooked in the literature.With an owner's inscription on title-page dated 1598. Browned throughout, with some water stains, and a small hole in the gutter of 10 leaves in the second part; a fair copy. Binding in good condition, worn spine with a small tear.l Crowley 7; Poletti, p. 105; cf. Adams H-997-998; Durling 2460.
