Lyon, Bonhomme, 1551.
Eine von 2 seltenen Lyoner Ausgaben aus dem Jahr der Erstausgabe. - "The Parisian surgeon Antoine Mizauld (1510-1578), who served as adviser to Marguerite de Valois, is perhaps the most well-known of the French medical humanists who attempted to harmonize the movement of celestial bodies and the health of specific patients. Mizauld's medical philosophy fused the teachings of Galen, Plato, and Aristotle with knowledge that he thought to be even more ancient - the writings of the so-called Hermes Trismegistus, a spurious pre-classical figure who served as the unifying point of many fields of knowledge in the Renaissance... The 'Planetologia' combined Mizauld's own dialogues and treatises on astronomy and medicine with the key classical authorities known to sixteenth-century cosmographers, translated and excerpted by Mizauld's contemporaries. The short tracts in the 'Planetologia' would be put to equally industrious use by those who encountered them, and would even appear in more general works of prose by the end of the sixteenth century" (Archaeology of Reading). - Stellenweise leicht gebräunt bzw. stockfleckig. Die ersten 3 Blätter mit restaurierten Randläsuren. Titel mit radiertem Stempel, sonst wohlerhalten. - Adams M 1513; Houzeau-Lancaster 5866 (fälschlich: Planetographia)
