Description

Niccolò Leoniceno (1428–1524) was a professor of medicine at Ferrara, a close friend of Aldus’s, and one of the editors of the Aldine Aristotle. In this short treatise he describes the outbreak of a disease in the French army during the siege of Naples in 1495 (hence morbum Gallicum), and determines that the disease is not new, but one that recurs throughout history and often accompanies armies on the march. Bound by Charles Hering for George John, Lord Spencer (1758–1834).
