Description

Bernard de Gordon taught in the medical faculty at Montpellier, which was a refuge for Jewish students from Spain. The Lilium Medicinae, written in 1303 and first printed in Naples in 1480, must have been well-known and well-used, as there were 7 editions printed before 1501. The text is notable for including one of the first descriptions of a truss for inguinal hernia. The De Phlebotomia is exceedingly rare, with only 4 manuscript copies known.

From the Prince Dietrichstein Library.
