Breslau und Hirschberg, J. F. Korn der Ältere, 1792. - 6 Kupfertafeln, LXXVIII, 416 S. Pappband der Zeit (berieben). Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe. - Hirschberg II, § 396, S. 136, Nr. 3 Anm.; Albert/Norton 1967 (zur engl. Orig.-Ausg. London 1790): "One of the most intriguing volumes in the historic ophthalmic literature. Ostensibly written by Rowley, the book was jugded in England to be an important ophthalmological work at the time. Almost half a century later, it gradually dawned on the ophthalmic intelligentsia that the book was in fact a plagiarism. Rowley's book was an unacknowledged translation of Joseph Jacob Plenck's Doctrina de morbus oculorum. The full story of the deception was published in 1910 by the great historian, Julius Hirschberg' (Albert, The Classics of Ophthalmology Library, 1988). - Titel mit Bibliotheksstempel, Abgabevermerk und Besitzerstempel.
