A medical doctor, Broekhuizen owned Vesalius De humani corporis (1555), the Anatomiae Epitome (1642), Harvey's De motu cordis (1628), etc., and many botanical works, all necessary to his profession. Despite the erratic collation and pagination, the present copy matches that cited in ESTC on-line. Munby & Coral, p. 5; Wing (2nd ed.) B-4840.
