About This Item

Basle: [apud] Henricum Petri & Petrum Pernam, 1562. (xvi); 573; (blank verso); (xviii) pages. Minor worming towards the rear. Rebound red morocco. With the bookplate of the educational reformer and founder of the Dartington Trust L. K. Elmhirst. This is a comprehensive and rare treatise on toxicology in the first (and sole?) edition, 'by many hitherto desired', the work of a doctor, Santis de Ardoynis, originally written at Venice c.1426. Drawing on a wide range of classical (especially Galen) and later authorities as well as his own experience, Ardoynis presents in 8 books general definitions, particularizing types of poison e.g. metallic, natural (air and water), plants, animal (especially reptiles and fish, to which Book 6 is devoted), and even man himself, with the twin aims of preservation and cure. His work is followed by a short treatise on the same subject by Cardinal Ponzetti, originally published 40 years before and now much improved. Adams,1546. First Edit. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio. Book.
