Johannes de Ketham can convincingly be identified as Hans von Kircheim of Swabia, fl. 1455-1470, professor of medicine in Vienna, who used this collection for his lectures and recommended it to his pupils. This collection of texts was in circulation by 1400.--see K. Sudhoff: The fasciculus medicinae of Johannes de Ketham, Alemanus. Milan, 1924.

First edition; first detailed anatomical illustrations ever printed.
