Castellus, Bartholomew

, an Italian physician, who flourished about the end of the sixteenth century and the commencement of the seventeenth, published two works which have been often reprinted, and long held in high estimation; the first was “Totius artis medicae, methodo divisa, compendium et synopsis,” Messana, 1597, 4to, and, after many other editions, reprinted at Geneva, 1746, 4to. The other was his “Lexicon medicum Groeco-Latinum,” first published at Venice in 1607, 4to. After being often reprinted as the author left it, it was enlarged and improved by J. P. Bruno, and published at Nuremberg, 1682, 4to. The last edition is that of Geneva, 1748, 4to. 2
