Maoheny's festschrift for Paul Oskar Kristeller has an article on Leonicerno's influence on humanist medical education. It would be hard to find a Sixteenth Century medical doctor or student of medicine who did not carry this small book with him. Bound in brown cloth, green spine label. Cloth worn through corners and edges of boards, spine label chipped, one tiny worm hole through all lower margins not affecting any text. Small contemporary owner’s name in brown ink. A very good, clean copy.
