De conservatione sanitatis. With additions by Johannes Philippus de Lignamine.

Rome: Johannes Philippus de Lignamine, 1475.

This medieval guide to health and hygiene is sometimes misattributed to Hugo Benzi. It was one of the earliest medical or health texts to appear in print, and is unusual in that the printer, who was not a physician, indicated that he contributed to the text. ISTC No. ib00313000.
