Rarissima edizione. L’opera, indirizzata ad Andrea Ghini Malpighi all’epoca vescovo di Arras, è suddivisa in cinque parti: la prima, a carattere introduttivo, ne illustra le finalità e analizza il concetto di sanitas, mentre le successive sezioni espongono le regole per il mantenimento della sanità e i diversi ‘instrumenta’ a disposizione dei medici. Di notevole interesse la seconda parte, che contiene capitoli dedicati all’igiene sessuale. Il medico e astrologo milanese Maino de Maineri, conseguì la laurea in medicina a Parigi e divenne Maestro reggente della facoltà medica: tornato a Milano, divenne medico e astrologo di corte della Casata dei Visconti. Proctor: “It is made clear that Maino and his patrons viewed the role of physician as much more than doctoring to the sick, a view echoed throughout in other contemporary sources. The good physician sought to preserve and conserve the health of his household, acting as dietician, moralist and guardian to his clients. Through the creation of his writings, Maino sought to reflect and perfect these roles, to ensure the centrality of prevention within medical education and so to future generations of practitioners.” Goff M52; H 10484*; Klebs 640.2; Proctor 7869.
