VERBRUGGE, Johannes.
Examen chirurgicum, oder vollkommene praxis chirurgico-medica in welcher nebst einer kurtzen, iedoch vollständigen anatomie alle chirurgicalische fundamenta ...Dresden, Johann Christoph Zimmerman, 1704. 8vo. With title-page printed in red and black. Contemporary boards, spine covered with white paper.
[16], 608, [32] pp.First edition in German of a surgical work by the Dutch surgeon Johannes Verbrugge (ca. 1633-1681). Verbrugge regularly refers to Hippocrates (in the Islamic world known as Boqrat) and Galen, mainly on the principles of surgery. The work covers surgeries both on land and at sea, starting with the more basic information, where to find specific organs and what surgical tools there are available. It also deals with more practical matters: how to fix things like broken ribs or a broken nose, and how to cure specific diseases. The text was used by the Dutch VOC (East India Company) and the WIC (West India Company) on their voyages, and includes diseases that could be found on "foreign coasts", like Greenland and New Guinea. The original Dutch edition, entitled Examen van land- en zeechirurgie..., was first printed at Amsterdam in 1674, and was reprinted many times during the following era. The text is translated by the Dresden based physician Martin Schurig (1656-1733).With owner's inscription on title-page and some manuscripts annotations in the margins. Browned throughout with some occasional spots. Binding rubbed along the extremities, slightly soiled. Overall a good copy.l VD18, 1038717X; cf. Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC, 821 (second edition in German); BMN I, p. 297 (second edition in German); not in: Blake.
