Rare Antique German Medical Book published in 1595
Considering its age (423 years old), it is in amazingly good condition! 423 year old German medical book. Compiled by Dr. Oswald Gabelkofer of Wurtenburg. It was published in Saxony in 1595. The book is divided in two sections. The first 424 pages are devoted to general ailments and the second 434 pages are devoted to specialization of women's and children's diseases. Many remedies suggested which appear strange today, but were apparently subscribed by physicians of that time: Dried angle-worms, pulverized in wine; birds' eyes prepared in various ways; livers of wolves. The book is substantially bound in full calf leather with raised bands and blind-stamped boards. Front cover is stamped with the date of printing "1595." Included newspaper article published in the Sheboygan (Wis.) Press in November 1927. FREE U.S. shipping ($25 surcharge for AK, HI and PR). Shipping Insurance (domestic U.S. only) included.
