Donati in the sixteenth century, this was the most complete and reliable work on the history of medicine to follow and may still be consulted with profit. The first edition was published in 1696 and, after the second edition had been exhausted. Le Clerc found it expedient to write a third edition, which he updated to the middle of the seventeenth century"].
