Walter Pagel library (paperslip on pastedown). ---- Wellcome 4102; Garrison-Morton 2365; CNCE 60434. - FIRST EDITION, falsely dated 1507 in the colophon; another issue with the same false date has the imprint Parma, Francesco Ugoleto and Antonio Viotti.

"This early work on syphilis (the 4th after Grünpeck, Leoniceno and Lopez de Villalobos) includes a description of the neurological manifestations of the disease (Garrison-Morton). It is a comprehensive description of the symptoms and effects of syphilis. Massa believed that although usually contracted by sexual intercourse, syphilis could also arise spontaneously without contact. He discusses the role of diet, sleep and exercise together, and the use of drugs, bloodletting, leeches, and guaiac in the treatment of syphilis (Heirs of Hippocrates 195, describing the 1532 edition). Niccolò Massa studied at Padua and was professor of anatomy at Venice. He is best known as one of the earliest anatomists (with Benedetti and Berengario), to perform dissections, as he states in his Anatomiae liber introductorius, first published in 1536.
