Condition Report

First and only edition. The illustrious doctor from Modena Francesco Torti responds to the criticism of his adversaries, and in particular of Ramazzini, regarding the usefulness of the use of China-China, introduced in the treatment of "pernicious" fevers, for which at the time it was used only Galenic remedies and purgatives. Garrison: "A reply to Ramazzini about the misuse of quinine, by the scholar who promoted quinine against malaria fever. He coined the word malaria for the disease." Esemplare appartenuto al Marchese Lanfranco Cortesi, membro dell'Accademia dei Dissonanti di Modena.
