Note 1

Medical treatise on gout (and arthritis), followed by a lecture on syphilis, held in Louvain on 15 December 1557 or 1558. The latter is studied by L. Elaut, 'Over de syfilis: een aktuele "Declamatio" te Leuven in het jaar 1557 gehouden' in Scientiarium Historia, 2, 1960, pages 9-16.

Note 2

According to the colophon the printing was finished on 11 March 1565.

Note 3

The cost-accounting note in Arch. 4, folio 77, gives the following details about 'Sylvius de morbo articularis à 800 (= meaning that 800 copies were printed)': the wages for composing and printing amount to 10 florins Carolus guilders 10 stuivers; for printing the 800 copies 13 reams 5 'mains' of 'papier petit bastard' were used, which, at 1 florins Carolus guilders 4 stuivers per ream, came to 15 florins Carolus guilders 7 stuivers, bringing the overall costs to 25 florins Carolus guilders 17 stuivers

Note 4

A number of copies have on the title-page the imprint of Plantin's Antwerp colleague, G. Silvius, who must have taken quite a large part of the edition.
