Dealer Notes
van Almeloveen was a 17th century Dutch physician.
Aphorisms are short phrases or propositions written to help with diagnoses or treatments. Some, like “When sleep puts an end to delirium, it is a good symptom” are brief and to the point, others are longer and more detailed.
Published around the time the University of Glasgow was establishing and formalizing its Medical school, modernizing the education of physicians. Though its first chair of medicine had been established in 1713, and lectures held, its first modern course of medical studies, including chemistry and materia medica, as well as the earlier courses in botany and anatomy, started in 1746.
