Opusculum aegritudinum puerorum.

Leuven (Louvain), Belgium: Johann Veldener, 14861487.

A work on disorders of pregnant women as well as on pediatrics. It describes 52 childhood diseases, providing the name, the causes, symptoms, prognosis and treatment of each, drawing on Greek authors, Arabs (especially Avicenna) and recent authors. Facsimile reprint in Sudhoff (No. 6355). Curiously almost all recorded copies lack the first 77 leaves, which apparently were not issued. In the 1980s six of the missing leaves were discovered as endpapers. See D.E. Rhodes, "A volume from the monastery library of Hayles," Trans. Camb. Bibl. Soc., 8 (1985), 598-603 & 9 (1987) pp. 205-207.  ISTC No. ir00241000. English translation in Ruhrah, No. 6354.
