Argentinae (Strasbourg): Lazari Zetzneri, 1597. First edition. Hardcover. Folio. [36], 28, 1080 [ie1082], [34]pp. Contemporary full vellum with gold-lettering on title-label. Title-page in red and black lettering with woodblock vignette. Decorative initials, head- and tailpieces. This first edition under Spach's editorship of this touchstone of medical competence on obstetrics, is a collection of gynaecological texts, both classical and 'modern'. 'Spach's compilation of gynecological and obstetrical texts was the largest such collection of its day, reprinting most of the works collected in Caspar Wolff's "Volumen gynaeciorum" and Gaspard Bauhin's "Gynaeciorum sive de mulierum affectibus" (1586-88), and adding several other treatises. The collection includes works by Plater (whose anatomy of the female genitalia heads the collection), Moschion, Le Boë, Montanus, Paré and many others. Some of the anatomical woodcuts are taken from Vesalius's Fabrica, in particular his "masculinized" representation of the female reproductive organs; also illustrated are various surgical and gynecological instruments, including a speculum' (Norman catalogue).Adams S1517; Cutter and Viets pp 29-30; Durling 2254; Garrison and Morton 6013; Norman 1977 (this copy); Waller 9096; Wellcome 6030.

Water staining on outer margin of the first 30 leaves (not affecting text). Minor to heavy age-toning throughout. Text in Latin. Binding and interior in overall good to good+ condition. g to g+.
