Capello, Gio. Battista
Lessico Farmaceutico-Chimico Contenente Li Rimedi Piu Usati d'Oggodi
Venezia: Domenico Lovisa, 1754. 6th Ed.
Hardcover. Large 8vo. Original parchment binding. (4) + xxvii + 252 pp. 6th edition, corrected and augmented by the author. Includes his "Trattato delle Droghe" and an Index. Soiled covers inscribed by contemporary hand; text block partially detached from covers but holding very firmly by one of the original sewings; a couple of ink names on front free endpaper; numbers on front pastedown, and sketch on rear; some damp stains; soiling to margins; but for all that, still a pretty tight copy, and a quite presentable example of this historic stand-by of 18th century pharmacology. At least this copy appears to have had a lot of the use it was intended for. Laid in is what looks like a medical bill in contemporary hand and on contemporary paper. Text in Italian.
