Also included are 400 observations by the author, approximately 250 communicated to him by fellow physicians, and finally, the Arcana, a collection of secrets giving the chemical formulae for a large number of preparations together with their medicinal properties. At the end, separately paginated, is added a treatise on the symptoms, cause and cure of respiratory problems by Fabrizio Bartoletti (1586-1630). Rivière was the first to introduce the therapy of using metallic compounds internally, known as the spagiric or paracelsian-specific method, and the first to note aortic constriction. Rivière’s work was instrumental in the French Renaissance of medicine. Bookseller Inventory # D6963
