Very rare second edition of Concoregio's Practica noua medicine (the first was published in Pavia in 1485, under the title Opus de aegritudinibus), here with the first printing of De curis febrium. Born in Milan around 1380, Giovani de Concoregio seems to have entered the academic world in Bologna in 1404 or 1405; later he most likely taught at Montpellier and Pavia. Practica nova medicine begins with a discussion of childhood diseases and their remedies, before progressing to diseases of the eye, nose mouth and stomach. De curis febrium examines various aspects and causes of fevers, and their relevant treatments, according to the methodologies of the time. Overall the two works reveal little originality or knowledge of anatomy, and are heavily based on the text of Mondino, as well as Arabic models including Mesue, Serapion, and Rhazes.
