ANON.
Onomatologia Medico-Practica.
0. 1783. Encyklopädisches Handbuch für ausübende Aerzte in alphabetischer Ordnung ausgearbeitet von einer Gesellschaft von Aerzten. Three volumes [Volumes I, III & IV only, of four], Nürnberg, Raspe, 1783 - 1786; [viii] pp. 2846, 2106, 1576 columns, [xx pp. index, also printed in double columns]; contemporary half sheep, spines with raised bands and printed labels; bindings very worn and rubbed, although tight and firm, two small pieces of leather, and a numbering-label, missing from spine of Volume III, two-thirds of the leather spine of Volume IV are missing; the blank margins of a few pages are creased at the top in the outer corners. A rare encyclopaedic compendium of medical practice for German-speaking general practitioners of the time: "Wir haben bei seiner Abfassung hauptsächlich ein .. Bedürfnis practischer Aerzte, und zwar solcher zu befriedigen gesucht, denen die Vorsehung nichr Glücksgüter genug zugeworfen hat, um den zu einer nach Begriffen unsers Zeitalters eingerichteten Büchersammlung, erforderlichen Aufwand machen zu können." Sadly our set lacks Volume II. The remaining three offered here are firmly-bound and internally clean. The original owner, 'J.Nielsen', has entered his name neatly on the front free endpapers. The volumes are thick and would cost more in postage than is automatically allowed.
