A gem in the #danamedicallibrary Medical History Collection is this book published in 1595. It is the oldest book in our collection, was written by Brice Bauderon, an “expert physician”, and lists medicines for inner and outer treatments of the human body. It is bound in calf, rubbed and rebacked, sustaining some damage over time but is in remarkably good condition. Originally written in French, it was translated into German. #uvmlibraries #oldbooks #booksofinstragram #librariesofinstagram
