Buch der Cirurgia, Hieronymus Brunschwig's handbook of surgery, was first printed in 1497 by Johann Grüninger. The work was intended for aspiring barbers and surgeons, and includes compiled knowledge of past surgeons along with the experiences of Brunschwig himself. Many of the woodcut illustrations are only loosely related to the text, consist of composites, and reappear throughout the text and in other works printed by Grüninger.
