  • Rubrication: Initials supplied in alternating red and blue. Large initials at the beginning of each book supplied in blue, with decorative red penwork. Large initial and margins of leaf pi2 are elaborately decorated in Florentine style in gilt and black, blue, green, and pink ink.
  • Foliated in ms.
  • Provenance (1): This work bears the ownership inscription of Giorgio Antonio Vespucci (1434-1514) beneath the text on the colophon. Initially bequeathed to the Duomo, Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence, in his 1497 will (item 29), Vespucci donated it to the cathedral on March 6, 1500. In the 16th century, it may have passed to Giaimo Valguarnera, Bishop of Malta. The Valguarnera family coat of arms (Argent two bars gules) has been painted over two black ink stamps, probably of the Duomo seals, at the bottom of leaf A1r. At the bottom of leaf pi2r, part of the paper has been expertly excised and replaced by a seal with a bishop's mitre and two infulae over two feathers (sable and or). A few letters of the text have also been replaced in ms.
  • Provenance (2): Pasted on the inside front cover is a bookplate of the Huth Library ("Ex musaeo Huthii"). Henry Huth (1815-1878) probably acquired this volume on his travels through Europe. He bequeathed his library to his son Alfred, whose heirs sent the collection to auction after his death. On June 5, 1912, Sotheby's sold this edition to the London bookseller Bernard Quaritch. A Quaritch catalogue entry, ca. Dec. 1912, is pasted on the front endleaf. It bears the pencilled inscription to S. Weir Mitchell from William Osler: "This is a superb copy. Why not bleed the Fellows of the College? I will go $25. W.O." In another hand: "Ordered at request of Dr. Wilson, Jan. 4, 1913."
  • Purchased for the College of Physicians of Philadelphia with funds donated by 14 Fellows: Mitchell, Osler, J.M. Anders, T.G. Ashton, G.F. Baker, J.G. Clark, J.B. Deaver, R.H. Harte, W.W. Keen, E.E. Montgomery, J.B. Roberts, G.E. deSchweinitz, J.C. Wilson, and S.L. Ziegler.
  • Bound in red Morocco in a Harleian style, with gold stamping; signed by J. Clarke.
