About This Item

Antuerpiae: Ex officina Christophori Plantini, 1568. Quarto. 167, [1], 110, [2]pp. Later calf, rebacked. Bound with: Wolff, Hans Kaspar. Gynaeciorum ... With the Latin text of: "Libellus Hipp. Peri eptam?nou, hoc est, De septimestri partu …" and of "Libellus Hipp. De medicamentis purgantibus ..." Both works are attributed to Hippocrates but in fact are by an unknown author. A lovely copy. Additionally, this item has an intriguing entry that points to a wonderful provenance. On one of the front free endpapers, the name 'Sir James Y. Simpson' is boldly inscribed. I cannot ascertain whether the inscription is in Sir James Simpson's hand, or whether he signed his name as 'Sir James Y. Simpson' in later years. Signatures of his that I have seen on-line look rather different. It is possible, however, that this was a simple acknowledgement by Sir James Y. Simpson of his ownership of the item. Secondly, this book came from a collection of other medical books containing the bookplate of Sir Alexander Russell Simpson in memory of Sir James Young Simpson, so that the association with the Simpsons is undeniable..
