Other notes:Note in The Book Collector, v.57, no.3 (Autumn 2008), p. 428: "Bontius De medicina Indorum 1621, the first modern account of cholera, is listed in William Poole LVIII (£900), with Robert Hooke's copy of Saluste du Bartas [should be Salustius; correction made by Mr. Poole] De diis et mundo, Leiden, 1639 (£600)."
The latter book is on Hooke's list of desiderata on the bottom half of f. 143v of British Library, MS Sloane 1039. The list can now be identified to be referring to the auction of Thomas Jacomb's library, and the book matches lot 272 on p. 46 of Edward Millington's Bibliotheca Jacombiana…quorum auctio habebitur...31 die Octobris 1687, available online via EEBO.
