Condition: Fine


Palermo: G. M. Mayda, 1576. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Two parts in one. 4to (203x147 mm). [8], 312, [32] pp.; 205, [15] pp., woodcut device of Justice on title and on QQ6r, printer's device on cc4r, 3 full-page engravings in part 1 on t4v, S2v, CC2v, very minor browning and spotting. Contemporary vellum. An excellent copy of a rare work. ---- Durling 2547; Waller 5068; Wellcome I, 3417; Hirsch-H. III, 374. - First edition. Important account of the outbreak of the plague in Sicily in 1575/76 and the medical countermeasures introduced by the author. Ingrassia (c. 1510-1580) was an important anatomist, teaching at Naples, and a clinician: his work in Palermo was of great value in containing the outbreak of plague there. A Pars quinta was published in 1577 (see Wellcome I 3417), but this is not present here, nor in the British Library copy. It is similarly neither in the Waller copy, nor that described by Durling.
