About This Item

Lisbon, Na Impress‹o Regia, 1815.. FIRST EDITION. 4¡, contemporary calf (label missing, some slight wear), spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments. Occasional slight marginal dampstaining and soiling, mainly to first and last few leaves. In fine condition. Early two-line ink ownership inscription on flyleaf: "HŽ de Luiz da Costa Calheiros // da Villa da Povoa de Varzim." (3 ll.), 354, xix, 50 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. A textbook on symptoms, prognosis, surgical operations, medicines, and so on, with an etymological dictionary of medical terms and an appendix on surgery and the law. It appeared again in Ouro Preto (Minas Geraes, Brazil) in 1839. The three preliminary leaves (not mentioned in the collation of actual copies in OCLC) contain the title page, dedication (to JosŽ Antonio da Costa Ferreira, among whose many titles is Physico M—r da Bahia), and prologue. The text covers all organs and systems of the body: chapter headings mention inflammation, abscesses, mortification, wounds, ulcers, carbuncles, tumors, aneurisms, hernias, hydroceles, concussion, cataracts, ear cancer, nasal problems, problems with the digestive system, dislocation, fractures, urological and genital problems, hemorrhoids, syphilis, and amputation. The pharmacological section, with 150 or so listings, is organized alphabetically from acetato de ammoniaco liquido to unguento ophthalmico. The author states the properties or uses of each item, gives recipes when the item is compounded, and notes the dosage. The final 50-page section is a handbook for those who must declare to a judge the cause of a death or disease. After an introduction on the duties of such medical examiners, chapters are devoted to how to open and examine cadavers, how to identify wounds of different types (including sections on wounds to the head, spine, neck, chest, and belly); how to confirm that someone has been poisoned, drowned, suffocated; and how to test for virginity, recent sexual intercourse, impotence, sterility, and pregnancy. Born in Trafaria, across the Tejo from Lisbon, Sousa Pinto (1777-1853) became a pharmacist in Lisbon when he was barely twenty, and eventually was regarded as one of nineteenth-century Portugal's principal pharmacists. He was also director of the Hospital of S. Lazaro, and served on a commission tasked to draw up a legal pharmacopoeia to replace the existing code. *** Innocncio I, 181. Lisbon, Faculdade de Medicina, Cat‡logo da colec‹o portuguesa I, 247: calling for only 2 preliminary leaves. Not in Pires de Lima, Cat‡logo da Bibliotheca da Escola Medico-Cirurgica do Porto. Wellcome Catalogue IV, 391: some defects. Porbase locates a single copy, at Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal (collation not given). Copac repeats the Wellcome Library, with a digitized copy whose collation matches ours, although the sections are bound in a different order. NUC: DNLM.
