About This Item

AMSTERODAMI: APUD LUDOVICUM ELZEVIRUM, 1652. Edizione del 1652 dell'“Ortus medicinae” il capolavoro del chimico fisiologo e fisico Jean Baptist Van Helmont (1580-1644). Van Helmont lavorò a fianco di Paracelso e a volte è considerato il fondatore della "chimica pneumatica". Van Helmont durante la sua carriera non pubblicò niente se non sotto forma di raccolte, "Opuscula medica", pubblicato l'anno della sua morte e "Ortus medicinae". Pagel (pp.13-14) sottolinea che "Ortus medicinae" non era la compilazione di una miscellanea di manoscritti da parte di suo figlio, Franciscus Mercurius van Helmont (1618-1699), ma venne concepita nella sua interezza da Van Helmont stesso. Il secondo volume con frontespizio proprio indipendente, è formato da quattro opuscoli di Van Helmont (De Lithiasi, De Febribus, De Humoribus Galeni and De Peste). Un'opera significativa nella storia della medicina, in questa seconda edizione considerata la migliore in quanto include la terza edizione degli Opuscula Medica e un nuovo indice. Antiporta con ritratto di Jan Baptiste Van Helmont (1580-1644) e suo figlio Franciscus Mercurius van Helmont (1618-1699). Presente in questo esemplare un altro frontespizio figurato dell'"Opera Omnia"di Van Helmont edizione di Francofurti, apud Hier. Christ. Paulli con numerosi simboli allegorici.

Edition of 1652 of “Ortus medicinae” the masterwork of the chemistry physiologist and physics Jan Baptiste Van Helmont (1580-1644) in which he elaborated his first ideas and studies about digestion. Van Helmont worked next to Paracelso and he is sometimes considered the establisher of "pneumatics chemistry Van Helmont published virtually nothing during his lifetime until the collection of medical treatises, the "Opuscula medica", published in the year of his death and again with the "Ortus medicinae". Pagel (pp.13-14) points out that the "Ortus medicinae" was not a compilation of miscellaneous manuscripts arranged by his son, Franciscus Mercurius van Helmont (1618-1699), but was conceived as whole by Van Helmont himself. The second volume, with indipendent title page, consists of Van Helmont's four Opuscula Medica (De Lithiasi, De Febribus, De Humoribus Galeni and De Peste).A significant book in the history of medicine, with this second edition considered the best of the two editions as it includes the third edition of Van Helmont's Opuscula Medica and a new index.
