"Paulus Aegineta was the most important physician of his day and a skillful surgeon. He gave original descriptions of lithotomy, trephining, tonsillectomy, paracentesis and amputation of the breast; the first clear description of the effects of lead poisoning also comes from him. His work first appeared in Greek from the famous Aldine Press in Venice in 1528" (Garrison-Morton). In Paulus Aegineta's 7 books he writes about the pulse, and cites Galen extensively. The translator of the 1542 title, Johann Winter von Andernach, provides commentaries in 7 appendices at the back of the text. The Adams translation, published in three volumes between 1844 and 1847, was the first English translation of the works of Paulus Aegineta. Garrison-Morton 36 and 8306; Heirs of Hippocrates 57 (first title).
