Amsterdam, Hendrik Gartman, 1790.xvi, 190, ii pp. halfvellum over marbled boards. In fine condition.
A rare work for the army surgeon at the battlefield. D.S.B. XIII p. 181 :" At various times Boerhaave stated that van Swieten would be the most suitable person to succeed him as a professor. The empress of Austria Maria Theresa, invited him to become court physician in 1743, at which time van Swieten declined and in 1745 he accepted her proposal and was put in charge of all court physicians. He reorganized the medical Faculty of Vienna, taking Leiden as a model.... Thus he laid the foundation for the Vienna school of medicine, which became world famous at the turn of the century. ... Van Swieten's activities were mainly organizational and political; but his role in establishing the great Vienna school of medicine and his dissemination of Boerhaave's ideas ... entitle him to a place in the history of science. " This is the sixth edition of the very scarce book by van Swieten on diseases in the army camp. Originally published in German this is the Dutch transl by J. d. Haar.
