De medicine claris scriptoribus in quinque partitus tractatus. In his: Libelli duo

Lyon: J. de Campis, 1506.

French physician and writer Symphorien Champier's biographical study of famous medical writers, De medicine claris scriptoribus in quinque partibus tractatus, issued as part of his Libelli duo, has been called the first history of medicine written after De medicina by the first century CE Roman writer Aulus Cornelius Celsus. The brief listing of the writings of these famous physicians which it includes is considered the first published bibliography of medical literature after Galen's bibliography of his own writingsDe libris propriis liber, which was written in the second century CE, but not printed until 1525, and the brief bibliography of Galen's writings which was first published in Articella seu Opus artis medicinae,edited by Franciscus Argilagnes (Venice, 1483). 

Breslauer & Folter, Bibliography: Its History and Development (1984) No. 10. A bibliographical study of Champier by P.A. Allut appeared from Lyons in 1859; a check-list of his writings was published by J.F. Ballard and M. Pijoan in Bull. med. Libr. Ass., 1940, 28, 182-88.
