Huuß-Apoteek och Läkie-Book, hwar utht allehanda hälsosamma Rådh och på många Meñiskior offta proberade Läkedommar.Visingsborg, Johannes Kankel, 1675. Small 8vo. Contemporary (?) vellum.
Collijn, col. 522 (8 copies); Wellcome, p. 522; KVK (2 copies); WorldCat (2 copies); not in Arents. A Swedish guide to home remedies for all imaginable illnesses, injuries and complaints, with very brief sections on various body parts and organs, and on various ailments. There is a brief note on tobacco (pp. 230-231). Lindh was surgeon to Per Brahe the younger (1602-1680), Count of Visingsö, made use of the Count's library for the "best authorities," and honours him with a six-page dedication. The Count was also patron to Johannes Kankel, who established the first printing office in Visingsborg ca. 1667, for he calls it the Count's printing office in the imprint of the present book. The inking is inconsistent. With extensive annotations in the margins and endleaves, at least one arly owner's name, and a later armorial bookplate. Somewhat browned and with some marginal stains. Binding rubbed and dirty. A good copy of a very rare guide to household pharmacology and medicine, especially interesting as a thoroughly local production (author, patron, library and printer).
