Celsus' books on medical subjects have had mixed responses: in general their literary style is praised but the content regarded as "armchair science" written by a patrician layman rather than a practising doctor. Celsus was the renaissance printers' favourite medical author. This copy was presented to the University of Sydney Library to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the birth of Dante, and it at one time belonged to Dr Fiaschi, a prominent Sydney doctor.
