[p. 135] Ad hvmanvm lectorem.

Hipocrates vniuersalia quædam præcepta breuia & pauca, in medicina scripsit. Etenim ex vniuersalibus scientia est. Versari verò circa particularia, (quorum etiam ars non est) nullus est finis. Quicunque igitur ita scribere poterit vniuersalia præcepta, eaq́ue singularibus & indiuiduis accomodare, hic in scribendo laudandus est. Idcirco canones 57. vniuersalesq́ue regulas, de lapide, & opere physico in medium attuli, quibus depictam artem facilè conspicies, modò acri iudicio & diligentia meditaberis. His in laudem Iesu Christi fruere. & vale.

To the human reader, Hippocrates wrote some universal, brief, and few precepts in medicine. Indeed, knowledge comes from universals. But to dwell on particulars (which do not even constitute an art) has no end. Therefore, anyone who can write such universal precepts and apply them to specific and individual cases is to be praised in their writing. For this reason, I have presented 57 universal canons and rules concerning the stone and the physical work, through which you will easily see the depicted art, provided you meditate on them with sharp judgment and diligence. Enjoy these in the praise of Jesus Christ. Farewell.
