- Lacks the portrait; all vols. w. new endpapers; a few foxed spots; vol. 2 sl. waterstained. Top of spine of vol. 2, 3 and 4 chipped. = G. van Swieten was a medical student of H. Boerhaave. During Boerhaave's lectures, van Swieten adapted an existing shorthand system to medical language, so his lecture notes reflect Boerhaave's presentation closely. Their mutual respect led Boerhaave to show his most interesting private cases to van Swieten. At various times Boerhaave stated that van Swieten would be the most suitable person to succeed him as a professor. Due to their very close relation, van Swieten considered it his life-work as a medical writer to commentate on Boerhaave's Aphorisms. "The Commentaria, which greatly contributed to the dissemination of Boerhaave's ideas beyond the circles of his pupils, was reprinted many times and was translated into four languages."
