A scarce mid 16th century edition of Galen’s De arte curatiua ad Glauconem, libri duo, as interpreted by Nicholas Leonicenus Vincentinus.
Greek physician, surgeon and philosopher in the Roman Empire, Galen was considered to be one of the most accomplished of all medical researchers of ancient history and influencing Western medical science for more than 1300 years. Many of his anatomical reports remained uncontested until Vesalius’ De humani corporis fabrica.
