The De medicina libri octo contains the following: Book I, historical review and general dietetics; Book II, pathology and general therapy; Books III & IV, special therapy; Books V & VI, pharmacology; Book VII, surgery; Book VIII, bone diseases. This work was written about A.D. 30 by the first important medical historian. Celsus left the best account of Roman medicine. See: Garrison and Morton 20 (1st printed edition, 1478). Of Celsus, Fridolf Kudlien writes in the DSB, "Celsus, therefore, even as a non-physician - whether one classifies him, following Luigi Castiglioni, as a ‘scholar’ or, following Meinecke, as an ‘artifex medicinae’ - fits very well into the medical world of imperial Rome: an aristocratic, Greek-educated Roman who, within the framework of a general education, was very strongly interested in medicine and who held a completely individual point of view that was nevertheless typical of the time; one might call him a Hippocratic eclectic." DSB, III, pp. 174-175. Theodore Jannson van Almeloveen (1657-1712) was a Dutch physician and classical scholar and the nephew of the celebrated printer, Jansson Almeloveen. He became successively professor of history, Greek, and medicine at the University of Harderwijk. He was a member of L’Academie des curieux de la nature, under the name of "Celsus secundus." Among his extensive writings were his work on medicine, particularly the works of the ancient physicians and historians of medicine: Celsus, Hippocrates, Sereni Sammonici, Casaubon, and others. Blake, NLM, p. 82; BM Readex, V, p. 282; Waller 1856; Wellcome, II, p. 319. See: Hirsch, I, pp. 686-687. First Edition.
