About this work
Also known as
Regimen contra pestilentiam
Regimen contra epidimiam sive pestem
Colophon title: Tractatus de regimine pestilentico
[Cologne] : [Johann Guldenschaff], [1490?]
4 unnumbered leaves ; 4to (21 cm)
Title from incipit of leaf .
Although often attributed in incunable editions to Benedictus Kamisius, Kamintus, Canutus or Kanuti (i.e. Bengt Knutsson, bishop of Västerås), the author is probably Johannes Jacobi (i.e. Jean Jasme or Jacme)--Cf. Wickersheimer.
This edition is perhaps the Regimen contra morbum epidemiae announced on the title page of Goff R-74, with which it is sometimes found. Two settings are known of the title page. One setting reads "Regimen contra epidimiam siue pestem"; the other reads: "Regime[n] [con]tra epidemia[m] sive peste[m]".--Cf. Klebs. Pestschriften, no. 25-26.
Imprint from Goff.
