Fifth edition of the work Armamentarium Chirurgicum by Johnanes Schultes [latinized last name is Scultetus], first published 10 years before in folio format, which: “Contains a complete catalogue of all known surgical instruments of the period, of the methods of bandaging and splinting, and of a vast number of operative procedures […] amputation of the breast, reduction of dislocations, passage of sounds, forceps delivery of dead fetuses and neurosurgery […] Schultes’ work became the most widely published illustrated treatise on surgery of the seventeenth century” (Norman 1912).
Light traces of use to the binding. Occasional spots at some leaves. Untrimmed edges. Overall a very good copy.
Note the Natan Schleider Gallery Collection has a book of identical title but this is from 1889 and is a surgical supply catalog by George Tiemann & Co: https://antiquemedicalinstruments.com/antique_catalogs/the-american-armamentarium-chirurgicum-by-george-tiemann-co-new-york-n-y-published-1889-by-george-tiemann-co-in-new-york-rare-ex-libris-surgeon-general-office-with-hand-painted-colorful-out/
