About this work


Treté des maladies des os. Below the title as given above the author writes: 'Je vous entretiendray de la différence des playes et des contusions, et de la manière de les traiter, en vous parlant des playes de la tête à l'ocation du trépan, je passe au doulleurs des os'. On pp. 212 et seq. the name of 'Silvestre' appears, and he is presumably the author of the MS., which may be notes of lectures given by him, and taken down by a certain 'Hieronimus', who has written 'Ex libris Hieronimi 1720' inside the upper cover.
