Institutiones Medicae In usus annuae Exercitationis Domesticos Digestae ab Hermanno Boerhaave
The lectures Boerhaave gave in 1701 were called "Institutiones Medicae" and this book is based on those lectures. Index indicates the book is divided into five sections: physiology, pathology, semeiotica, hygiene, and therapeutics. Dedicated to Abraham Drolenvaux, a city alderman whose daughter Boerhaave married in 1710. A later Dutch translation appeared in 1741 in Amsterdam, titled "Geneeskundige onderwizjingen." G&M 581 (first ed. 1708). One of Boerhaave's best works, especially the section on physiology with important observations upon digestion.
