Anet (3 copies, 2 of which are incomplete); Blake, p. 348; Daems & Vandewiele, pp. 71-72 (6 copies); STCV (2 incomplete copies); Wellcome IV, p. 357. Rare third edition of the Brussels pharmacopoeia. Brussels had begun discussing plans to establish a Collegium Medicum ca. 1605, but failed to do so. A 1636 plague gave city magistrates the impetus to compile a pharmacopoeia, however, and they commissioned four leading city physicians to compile the present Brussels pharmacopoeia. No apothecaries were officially consulted in the compilation of the Brussels pharmacopoeia, reflecting the growing status of physicians and declining status of apothecaries. Amsterdam had produced the first official pharmacopoeia in the Low Countries in 1636, based in part on Valerius, but the Brussels physicians chose to take the 1638 Paris Codex medicamentarius Parisiensis as their principal model.Binding worn; several pages browned and with a few smudges; frontispiece with a small restored tear in the fore-edge margin; pp. 77-78 with a part of the outer margin torn out and pp. 79-80 with a tear; a good copy.
