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.

HANDS – THE WINDOWS TO THE SOUL BUÉ, Hector-Joseph dit Alphonse.

La main: Essai physiologique et psychologique.

First edition of this rare curiosity devoted to the physiognomy of the hand, in which Bué advocates the careful study of the hands as the key to a person’s true character and nature. Starting from the premise that the hands are the most expressive part of the body, Budé examines the conclusions to be drawn from the colour, texture and temperature of an individual’s hands, the thickness, shape and size of their fingernails, their hands’ overall size and proportion, and the form of each individual finger. The work concludes with twelve aphorisms under the heading ‘Ma philosophie’. Bué followed La main with a similar work devoted to Le nez (1872), but returned to the hand in his 1889 analysis of La main de Général Boulanger.

The five sections deal with the diagnosis and symptoms of the disease, its treatment, preventive measures (including advice on diet and regimen), the prevention of contagion, and finally a list of the objects that every household should have during an outbreak, including woollen blankets, clean hand towels, a bottle of good wine, and camomile tea.
