La pharmacopee. Qui est la maniere de bien choisir & preparer les simples, & de bien faires les compositions: despartie en trois livres .Lyon, Louis Cloquemin, 1580. 16mo (12.5 x 8 cm). With Cloquemin's woodcut device on the title-page. Recased in contemporary(?) sheepskin parchment.
- Durling 1248; USTC (8 copies); Waller 2588. Rare second French edition of a pharmacopoeia first published in Latin and reaching more-or-less its completed form with the Latin edition published at Lyon in 1548, but with predecessors going back to 1541. The present first French translation was first published at Lyons in 1574. The book was compiled by the Paris Galenist physician and professor of anatomy, Jacques Dubois or Sylvius (1478?-1555), teacher of Vesalius, and translated by the Lyons physician André Caille (1515-1580). The three "libri" cover collecting simples, preparing simples and preparing compound medicines. The 1548 edition introduced the title Pharmacopoeae, which many later pharmacopoeia followed. With 2 early owners' inscriptions and an occasional contemporary ms note (1 extensive). With a minor water stain at the head of the page, occasionally touching the running heads, but still in good condition. The binding has been extensively reworked but is structurally sound.
