Title: Fasciculus dissertationum medicarum selectiorum.
Description: Basel, Joh. Ludovici Koenig, 1710, in-8vo, 6 unn. leaves (including title-page in red & black, loosening) + 649 p. + 8 leaves (last blanc), illustrated with three and half pages of engraved music, contemporary vellum. ¶ First edition of this interesting and very rare collection of medical (and psycological) thesis written under Zwinger and some of his great assistence. Noteworthy the paper on home-sickness by Johann Hofer 'De Pothopatridalgia. Vom Heim Wehe' with the engraved music 'der Kühe-Reihen'. Hofer writes, that especially Swiss legionaries (from Gruyère) in foreign services were worried by home sickness (le mal du pays). Singing their native songs like the 'Ranz des Vaches' had a sootheing affect on them, and it happened more than once that they returned home after hearing this song, often sung by swiss soldiers in both, opposite armies. Theodor Zwinger was professor at Basel; it is due to him that modern medical and natural scientific perceptions were accepted at Basel and that future generations could build on the results he and his contemporary fellow scientists had achieved.
