1. Vol.I appears to be written in Venetian dialect, and Vol.II appears to be written on Venetian paper, so it seems likely that they both originate in the Veneto. 2. 19th-century: bound as two volumes in matching bindings. 3. Morris S. Wickersham (1815–1883) (cf. 10a. 132), who apparently received his M.D. in 1835, but whose occupation is recorded in Philadelphia City directories in 1861 as “stockbroker”, and in 1865 as “gentleman”; he appears never to have been a Fellow of the College. 4. College of Physicians; rebound as a single volume after acquisition by the College, but before the publication of de Ricci; with the College bookplate (upper pastedown) depicting a lamp on a pedestal above “Non sibi sed toti”, enclosed within a belt bearing the legend “Ex libris Coll. Med. Philad. Instit. A.D. MCCLXXXVII”, below which is printed “Class [space] No. [space] / Presented by [space]”, the spaces filled-in by hand with “10a”, “131” and “M. S. Wickersham, M.D.”, respectively; the top right corner inscribed with the accession number “54851”, corresponding to the (re) accession register, vol.8, for October 4, 1910; the former pastedown of Vol.I (now fol.iii verso) with the torn remains of an older variant of the College bookplate, with “Class” not printed, and “N o .” on a line by itself with superscript “o”.
