"The Most Excellent Works of Chirurgerye, Joannes de Vigo, Da Capo Press, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Ltd., Amersterdam, 1968. Facsimile reprint of 1543 edition in Old English. Vigo's exceptional ""Cirurgie"" is justly considered to be the most complete system of surgery after that of Guy de Chauliac. Vigo was a pioneer of modern surgery, and was one of the first to provide a coherent treatise for the discipline. ""It was a book which especially suited a practitioner who knew nothing of anatomy and feared or dislike to make use of the knife"" Although he is generally known today only for his mistaken treatment of gunshot wounds, Vigo's first book on surgery was enormously successful. It was translated into English, Latin, Italian and French and reprinted dozens of times in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries making him one of the best known surgeons of his day. VG condition, some shelf wear. "
