"Mainly an elucidation of part of the second book of the Prognostica of Hippocrates" (Durling). From fol. O1r onwards, this contains Emerich's treatise "an urinarum vel pulsum observatio certiores notas salutis vel mortis medico praebeat". The Verona physician Giambattista da Monte (1498-1551) was one of the most famous practical medical men of his time (cf. Hirsch IV, 271).

Insignificant edge defects to final leaf; a clean and wide-margined copy. Very rare; no copy in the trade since 1950 internationally.
