- Parkinson 915; USTC (7 copies); cf. Hagelin, Old and rare books on materia medica, p. 70; Marland, The task of healing, p. 59; not in Durling. Rare edition, the first to be published in Basel, of a work on the proper compounding of medicines by the famous German physician and botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501-1566). "In 1531 he published his Compendiaria, a work intended to help students to appreciate the works of Hippocrates and Galen properly. Revised and greatly enlarged, this work went through some ten editions under the new titles of first Methodus, and later on Institutiones Medicinae." (Hagelin). The book opens with a dedicatory letter, followed by an index of ailments and diseases in both Latin and Greek. The main text is divided into two parts, the first describing the ailments and referring to and explaining texts by Galen, Hippocrates, Plinius and others, while the second part describes the ingredients and recipes for medicines.Binding rubbed, damaged and partially cracked at hinge. Browned, some marginal water stains and frequent marginal annotations. Overall a good copy.
