Still tells of how highly regarded Boerhaave was, including to one of his former pupils, Haller. The first printing of the Aphorisms was in 1709. The present work is contained within that work, but this is the material relating to children's health. There were many edition and translations that followed. Still adds, "So important were the Aphorisms considered that Gerhard Van Swieten of Leyden, who was subsequently the leading physician at Vienna and physician to the Empress Maria Theresa, spent, as Garrison points out, more than thirty years in composing a commentary on them; and a portion of this work, the Aphorisms with his commentary relating specially to diseases of children (Traite des maladies des enfans. . . Avignon, 1759)." – Still, p. 327. The book also contains a materia medica list of treatments for sick children as well as the Appendix. Grulee 589. [FFrye C188]
