Regiment der jungen Kinder.

Augsburg: Günther Zainer, 1473.

This work has very little originality, being mainly derived from the Arabic physicians of 500 years before, but is noteworthy as being the first book on pediatrics printed in German. It includes what is probably the first reference in medical literature to microcephaly. It was reprinted several times before 1500. Facsimile in Sudhoff’s Erstlinge (see No. 6355). The edition of 1497 is the first printed work on pediatrics to contain an illustration. Facsimile reproduction with commentary, Zürich, J. Stocker, 1976. English translation in Ruhräh (No. 6354). ISTC No. im00527000. Digital facsimile from the Bayerische StaatsBibliothek at this link.
