First edition of Oddi’s rare commentary on book I, fen I of Avicenna’s Canon, with the Latin versions of Andrea Alpago and Jacob Mantino. Before practicing Medicine in Venice, Oddo degli Oddi (Padova 1478 - ivi 1558) taught classics (Greek and Latin) at the University of Padua. Eventually he went back to Padua, where he taught Medicine. He was a committed supporter of Galen's doctrines, whence we learn that he was called "the soul of Galen." As Siraisi explains, "although in the body of his work much of the time he treated Avicenna with nominal respect, this was apt to be achieved through a procedure of deducing Avicenna's 'real' opinion by consulting Galen. In addition, Oddo Oddi had a long-standing interest in the problem of securing a better Latin text of the Canon (he was on the academic committee that approved Alpago's work and he encouraged Graziolo many years later ); he based his exposition on Alpago's text, which he claimed to be in general use, and rather frequently compared the latter's renderings with those of Gerard of Cremona and Jakob Mantino."
