Publisher

Venice: Aldus Manutius and Andrea Torresani,

Date

May 1526.

Description

The mid-1520s brought an uncharacteristic spate of medical works from the Aldine Press, especially the five-volume folio Galen of 1525. The Heirs of Aldus then published this editio princeps of the Hippocratic corpus, a collection of medical treatises assembled in the third century BCE and traditionally attributed to Hippocrates. Gian Francesco Torresani based this edition on a comparison of two manuscripts, which survive in the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Biblioteca Marciana in Venice. This first edition in the original Greek marked a substantial improvement on a Latin translation published the prior year in Rome. Note the warning to counterfeiters at the foot of the titlepage.
