In medieval medicine, Astrology took centre stage.
Of each doctor it was expected that they were aware of the movement of the stars, and the impact they would have on the functioning of the body. Cures were almost always adapted to astrological theories, for example in determining the time for a phlebotomy or bloodletting. Astrology and medicine were related practices.

Here in the auction it comes with a beautiful figure indicating all the veins. On the back are various advice concerning bloodletting.
Added is a second page with notes to eight astrological constellations.

Fragment from an incomplete early post-incunable edition printed by Jacob Köbel (1462-1533) in Oppenheim in 1512.
Kalender : new geordnet mitt vielen underweisungen der himmlischen Leüff, der zeit, der Christlichen Gesatze
