Conamen mappae generalis medicamentorum simplicium secundum affinitiates virium naturalium nova methodo geographica dispositorum . cum tabula aenea.Strasbourg, Bauer & Treuttel (colophon: Johann Heinrich Heitz), 1778. 4to. With a large folding engraved map (58 x 62 cm). Sprinkled brown paper on boards.
- Blake, p. 496; Pritzel 41369; Quaritch, De Belder collection II, 907; cf. Hirsch VI, p. 339 (on the author). First and only edition of an "eccentric" pharmaceutical work by George-Christophe Wu rtz (1756-1823), a French philosopher and physician. In this work he "attempts to create a map of mental and physiological functions with herbal simples arranged according to the localities they effect. This is illustrated by the plate with the herbs appearing as stars as in a celestial chart" (Quaritch). The text, divided into two parts, discusses the method used and the scientific nature of the relations he found. Due to the completely new approach the present work earned him a respected position within the French and German medical field. Foxed throughout, and with a water stain in the outer margin of the first 50 pages, otherwise a good copy. Binding rubbed along the extremities, spine damaged at the head and foot.
