by GROENEVELT, Joanne [Johannes GROENEVELD; GREENFIELD] (?1647-1710).
London:: M. Flesher, Impensis Abeli Swalle, 1687., 1687. Small 8vo. , 70,  pp. With 2 large folding tables (both tables are torn, some archival tape repairs), 7 engraved plates (1 folding); title has two small sections excised in order to remove a prior ownership signature on title -- and yet there is no loss of text (title verso is also blank). "Groenveldt was a famous lithotomist, using the suprapubic technique. He also enjoyed a rather unsavoury reputation as a quack for his determination to promote the use of cantharides. He changed his name to Greenfield when he came to England from Holland." -- Garrison and Morton. Murphy writes that much of the text here is taken from François Tolet (1647-1724).
