First edition and very rare; WorldCat lists one copy at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. Deodatus (fl. 1603-28), was a French doctor who served as physician to the bishops of Basel. In this work, he describes a number of illnesses including hernia, regional epidemics, gout, fevers, etc. He stresses the importance of diet.

Deodatus cites the writings of Albertus Magnus, Ryff, Braunschweig, Rösslin, Bock, Wirsung, Tabernamontanus, Mattioli, and Hantsch.

Good copy.
