About this Item: Valentiae: apud Michaelem Sorolla, 1626., 1626. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1626 Dioscorides Materia Medica Greek Medicine Herbal OPIUM Wine Pharmacopeia Pedanius Dioscorides was a 1st-century AD Greek physician most known for his important medical treatise “De Materia Medica” – a large work describing known drugs, medicines, and herbs, used for healing and cures. Dioscorides, as he was known, wrote on the health and healing benefits of aloes and opioids. This work is one of the most important ancient medical texts because it formed the basis for future herbal treatises. It is still considered the prime historical source for information on medicines used by ancient Greeks and Romans and records the names of 600 plants, many of which are obsolete or extinct. (Nutton, p.177) There also are inclusions of wine making and the health benefits of wine consuming, grapes, raisins, and mandrake. This book was the first Greek medical text to be translated into Arabic, because of this, it made long-lasting and important impacts on Arabic medicine.

Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1553 1st ed Materia Medica by Greek Dioscorides HERBAL Medicine Woodcuts Herbs Extremely Rare FOLIO 2v SET circa 375 WOODCUTS Pedanius Dioscorides (c. 40 – 90 AD) was a physician, pharmacologist and botanist, the author of De Materia Medica—an encyclopedia about herbal medicine and related medicinal substances (a pharmacopeia), that was widely read for more than 1,500 years. Dioscorides wrote De Materia Medica in Greek, his native language. De Materia Medica (Latin for "On Medical Material") is a pharmacopoeia of herbs and the medicines that can be obtained from them. The five-volume work describes many drugs known to be effective, including aconite, aloes, colocynth, colchicum, henbane, opium and squill. In all, about 600 plants are covered, along with some animals and mineral substances, and around 1000 medicines made from them.
