"Johannes de Ketham. Dieses Faksimile wurde im Auftrag des Instituts fur Geschichte der Medizin an der Universitat Leipzig nach dem Examplar der Zurcher Zentralbibliothek ... hergestellt und wurde den Teilnehmern am 6. Internationalen Kongress fur Geschichte der Medizin in Leyden und Amsterdam am 18. bis 23. Juli 1927 uberreicht vom Direktor des Instituts Henry E. Sigerist".

This is a facsimile of one of 6 different medieval medical treatises published by Johannes de Ketham as part of his "Fasciculus Medicinae", considered the first illustrated medical work to appear in print.

The German physician Johannes de Ketham, is identified by many to be Johannes von Kirchheim, a physician practicing in Vienna in 1460. He is thought to have lived in Italy at the end of the fifteenth century. Ketham is remembered for producing the "Fasciculus Medicinae", published in Venice in 1491, a collection of short medical treatises. The book is considered to be the first printed book to contain anatomical illustrations. This facsimile is of one of these treatises with an illustration portraying the anatomy of a pregnant woman.

The text is in German. First Edition.

Philadelphia, August 14, 1827. 1827. Good Signed
Philadelphia, August 14, 1827.. 1827.. Good. - sc - Over 30 words penned on a 6 inch high by 7-3/4 inch wide sheet of buff paper. Signed "James Mease". Folded for mailing, the top half of the page is darkened with some creasing to the top left corner. Good.

The Philadelphia physician James Mease (1771-1846) published articles contributing to medical knowledge. He served as a surgeon during the War of 1812. Mease's contributions to other fields, including numismatics and geology, are of even more significance than his writings on the subject of medicine. He is perhaps best known for his "Geological Account of the United States" (1807), a pioneering work on he subject and the first such treatise by an American. Mease served as an officer of the American Philosophical Society from 1824-1836 and was a founder and first vice- president of the Philadelphia Athenaeum.

According to the Publisher's note the "present reproduction of Linacre's translation of two treatises by Galen is issued as a specimen of early typography, being the sixth in order of the seven books printed by John Siberch, the first Cambridge printer, in 1521....The books printed by Siberch are all very scarce."
