De prandii ac cenae modo Libellus.
Roma: Paulum Manutium, Aldi F. Cum privilegio Pii IIII Pont. Max, 1562. in-4. 4ff. 90pp.First edition.Very rare treatise on dietetics by the famous Italian professor of anatomy and medicine Matteo Corti (1475-1544); he was the personal physician of Cosimo de Medici and of Pope Clement VII. The name of Mathaeus Curtius is also known in the history of medicine because he had been visited by André Vesale in 1538 about two works published by Curtius on bleeding, a subject which Vesale himself was working about. In 1539, Vesale went again to Bologna to attend Curtius' anatomy lessons on Mondino and Galen, and participated in them by illustrating them with dissections of corpses (cf. Garrison-Morton, 372.1).Vicaire, Bibliographie Gastronomique, 240: "Rare book".Good copy (trace of a collectors stamp on the title and the last leaf).
