    More Information: This seems to be Peccetti's only work which went through several seventeenth century editions. Nothing seems to be known of him save for this volume. He is also called by one on-line source Francesco Peccetti Celestino and said to be Florentine. This work has a historical excursus that should be more closely examined.     NLM/Krivatsy 8727.  Wellcome I, 4882. BL 17th (Ital.) II,665. Piantanida 2000 (note).Gurlt, 3:590.
