Pharmacopoea collegii medicorum Bergomi, rationem compenendi medicamenta usitatiora complectens. Altera editio .Bergamo, Comino Ventura, 1581. Folio. With woodcut device on title-page and colophon. Modern sheepskin parchment.
- Durling 989; G. Sonnedecker, Kremers and Urdang's History of pharmacy (1976), p. 424. Second edition of the first official pharmacopoeia of the Venetian Republic, compiled by the College of Physicians of Bergamo. "The title 'pharmacopoea' was not used in Italy until 1580 at Bergamo" (Sonnedecker), when the first edition, the Pharmacopoeia Bergamensis, was published. In 1601 the pharmacopoeia was replaced by the official pharmacopoeia of Bologna, after various delays to a revised edition.Since the appearance of the first pharmacopoeia, by Valerius Cordus (1515-1544), the authorities of several cities followed his example, compiling books with remedies and cures to various diseases and ailments. Their main goal was to enhance uniformity between the cities’ physicians, their prescriptions and their medicines. However, many private books of medicinal recipes were in circulation as well.With a restoration to title-page, not affecting the text, and one leaf detached. Heavily browned, with some water stains, small spots and thumbing. A fair copy.
