A revised edition of Dutch polymath Herman Boerhaave's (1668-1738) collection of succinct pronouncements concerning the diagnosis of and treatment of diseases. First printed in 1709, under the title Aphorismi de cognoscendis et curandis morbis, Boerhaave's work went through many editions and was widely translated; the extensive commentary present here was first printed at Padua in 1718. The London imprint is false; this edition likely being printed in the Netherlands.
