SKU: 3034 Category: Tag:


8vo, pp. ‘121’ [recte 112]. Title-page printed in red and black. Later sprinkled paper wrappers. Poor-quality paper rather browned, corners worn. Wrappers rubbed and a bit worn at extremities.


A scarce polemic against travelling medical charlatans, equated to carnival hustlers. The imprint is likely fictitious - Freising, then a major religious centre, would have been an odd place to publish such a satire. The author, supposedly a Veronese doctor, is probably also fictional. COPAC locates copies in the BL and NLS; outside of Germany Worldcat adds only BNF, Strasbourg, NLM, and the Royal Danish Library.
