the very rare enlarged and updated issue of the statutes of the medical faculty of Rome, a very rare and interesting document on its internal organization.
These statutes regulate the organisation of the College, demarcate the various branches and ranks of the medical profession (surgeons, obstetricians, protomedici, etc.), and regulate the procedures for the conferment of doctorates.
Our copy has three additional pages (pp. 117-119) at the end which are unknown to the library catalogues consulted. These pages are a continuation of the list of members of the Collegium, bringing it up to the year 1745.
