De Universa Muliebrium Morborum Medicina, Novo Et Antehac a Nemine Tentato Ordine Opus Absolutissimum
Bibliopolio Frobbeniano 1628 - 3rd edition. 4to, contemporary vellum. Folding table. [24], 226, [22]; [4], 541, [41] pages. Internally toned, but clean and unmarked.Rodrigo de Castro (1546-1627) was a Marrano doctor who fled the Inquisition and settled in Hamburg. Friedenwald ('Jewish Luminaries in Medical History', pp 54-56) calls him "one of the foremost physicians in establishing gynaecology in the Renaissance period". The first part of this extensive work treats female anatomy, conception, obstetrics and breast-milk; the second part, describing female diseases, has a section on pregnant women. References: Krivatsky 2287. EJ V, 244. Wellcome II 312.Provenance: Contemporary signature of Olaus Rigelius. From the library of Alfonso Cassuto, a noted collector of books authored by Iberian Jews. Cassuto?s book plate on front paste down. An interesting thought is the impact of the loss of men like Castro on Spain and Portugal and its connection to the downfall of Iberian power in the forthcoming centuries. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
