Summary
First ed. of the first practical treatise on medical ethics by Gabriele de Zerbis, professor of anatomy and logic at Padua, Bologna, and Rome, and one of the most famous anatomists of his time. Following his opening remarks on the ideal conduct of the physician, and his duties towards his patients, their relatives, and his own colleagues while avoiding the perverse intentions of society in general, Zerbis systematically discusses six key areas in which the physician must seek to preserve himself from danger: his nature, character, and physical appearance; his training; his attitude toward God; and his attitude toward himself, and toward his patient; his relation to those present in the sickroom, the women, his disciples, ordinary folk, and druggists; and finally, the image he presents to the world at large outside the sickroom. Ironically, Zerbis, who had been sent by the Signoria of Venice to Constantinople to attend Skander Pasha in his illness, was forced to flee into Dalmatia upon the death of his patient, where he was hunted down and brutally murdered by Pasha's slaves
