This study focuses on the manuscript fragment of one of the earliest and most influential surgical handbooks printed in Germany, the Feldtbuch der Wundarzney by Hans von Gersdorff (1517), transmitted in Luzern, Zentral- und Hochschulbibliothek, Pp 27 4o (early eighteenth century), which represents one of the latest examples of the reception of the field surgery manual and which will, therefore, allow investigating not only the reasons why some 200 years after its first publication this compilation of authoritative sources still deserved some interest, but also the textual and discursive modifications undergone by the text in this time span. In this, particular attention will be paid to the philological, linguistic, and terminological analysis of the fragment, in order to highlight any evolution and modification in the medical discourse across these two centuries and, specifically, in the passage from the printed medium to the manuscript form.

Abstract

This study focuses on the manuscript fragment of one of the earliest and most influential surgical handbooks printed in Germany, the Feldtbuch der Wundarzney by Hans von Gersdorff (1517), transmitted in Luzern, Zentral- und Hochschulbibliothek, Pp 27 4o (early eighteenth century), which represents one of the latest examples of the reception of the field surgery manual and which will, therefore, allow investigating not only the reasons why some 200 years after its first publication this compilation of authoritative sources still deserved some interest, but also the textual and discursive modifications undergone by the text in this time span. In this, particular attention will be paid to the philological, linguistic, and terminological analysis of the fragment, in order to highlight any evolution and modification in the medical discourse across these two centuries and, specifically, in the passage from the printed medium to the manuscript form.
