I and lower dampstaining in vol. II, some uncut corners, Rr3 and Rr4 in vol.1, C3, CC3 corner in vol. II, overall good copy of this important medical set). Early owner’s inscription on title identifying him as a medical doctor, and given the purported use, this copy remains very good. Another inscription, a library number in an early hand, is on the rear blank. François Boissier de Sauvages’s Nosologia Methodica was a groundbreaking description of the world of diseases, defined in states, which used signs and symptoms as a method to understand illnesses. Sauvages, Professor of Medicine at Montpellier, was most interested in recording those states that would bring the attention of a physician’s care so that he and his contemporaries would better understand the nature of diseases. He looked to the model of taxonomy in botanical study to enact his classification work. Sauvages’s two-volume published work resulted in the division of medical conditions into 42 orders, 315 genera, and 2,400 different species, although it is important to note that exact coverage varies from editions. Under Thomas Sydenham and his influential concept of the natural history of diseases, Sauvages’s observations sought to understand diseases experientially, in terms of patterns and observable symptoms. In this work, he details an extensive range of patient complaints in symptomatic reports. Sauvages’s celebrated work was most influential with his audience of medical readers; it was the basis for subsequent clinical reference books and both paralleled and fueled the findings of his close contemporary physician William Cullen (1712-1790). Cullen’s edition on nosology continued with the Tournes brothers of Amsterdam in the year following this augmented edition of the Nosologia Methodica in 1768. The first edition of this work appeared in 1763 in five volumes and inspired several reprintings throughout the 18th century, although this edition remains earlier and less common.
