Condition Report

The work is far more than art surgical strictly speaking, art cerusica as was practiced in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. So, next to basic knowledge of anatomy and surgery, is especially electuaries and remedies for all sorts of infirmities, the virtues of herbs, the "secrets" of various kinds; a large part is dedicated to Alchemy. The first edition appeared in Venice in 1582, simultaneously with Physics.
