Buchamer, Jacob; Johann Friedrich Schröter.  Orationes et quaestiones habitae, in promotione clarissimi & doctissimi viri, D.M. Jacobi Buchameri Halensis. Cum ipsi summus in arte medica gradus in academia Genensi decerneretur. [Jena]: Typis Donati Richtzenhan, 1584. 4to (18 cm, 7.08"). [24] ff.

The medical school at the University of Jena, one of the institution's four founding departments, was established in 1558. Roughly 25 years later, Jacob Buchamer of Halle received his degree in medicine with all due pomp and circumstance from Schröter (1513–1593, personal physician to the emperor and first rector of the university) — as documented in this testimony to Buchamer's knowledge and accomplishments. Schröter had previously been the moderator for Buchamer's thesis Agōnisma Iatrikon de calculo renum et vesicae urinariae, printed in 1583. Both that work and this doctoral dissertation presentation are now uncommon; a search of WorldCat finds => only two institutional holdings, both in Germany, of the present item.

VD16 ZV 30477. Later plain paper wrappers; outer edges speckled red, carrying over to outer margin of title-page. Early inked monogram in upper outer corner of title-page; two instances of early inked marginalia. Pages age-toned with occasional small spots. A nice copy.  (40416)   Please RESHELVE This.
