bey Rudolph Graffer und Compagnie, Wein [Vienna] 1787 - Medical Journal. Volume one only (of two: a second volume was published in 1801). Text in German. Quarto. LXXXII, 432pp., illustrated with an engraved frontispiece plate, vignettes, and 11 folding plates at the rear. Contemporary half leather and speckled paper-covered boards, gilt-stamped spine label. The joints are split but still snug, else a very good sound copy. The very scarce medical journal of the Viennese *Josephinum*, a military medical school established in 1783-85, and directed by the Italian physician Johann Alexander Brambilla (Giovanni Alessandro Brambilla), chief surgeon to Emperor Joseph II, and author of the *Instrumentarium Chirurgicum Militare Austriacum* (1782), the most complete survey of medical instruments of the day. This volume features two treatises by Brambilla: "Gliedschwamme am Knie," and "von der Bleykolik." Also included is "Tetanus von einer Verwundung," by Joseph Plenk, the leading dermatologist of the period, and "Beobachtungen uber die Samengange ihre Klappen," by the Viennese anatomist and physiologist Georg Prochaska. The engraved frontispiece: "Ratione et Experientia," vignettes, and folding anatomical plates (including two of a foetus), are especially fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
