Luminare maius quondam elaboratissimis, Joannis Jacobi Manlii: MANILIO, Giovanni Giacomo,

About this Item: Durling 2943; ICCU 005328; USTC 840129. First edition to be edited by Durastante, with commentary by Nicolai Mutoni, of three important late 15th-century treatises on pharmacology and medical botany. The first work, Luminare maius by Giovanni Giacomo Manlio di Bosco, is a commentary on ancient Arabic and Greek pharmacological works, especially the Arabic treatises of Yuhanna Ibn Masawayh known in the West as Mesue the elder (ca. 777-857). It gives instructions for preparing numerous medicines, indicating the quantities of the ingredients and describing each ingredient. The second work, Lumen apothecariorum by Quirico de Augustis de Tortona of Milan (fl. 1486-1497), complements it with descriptions of hundreds of medicinal preparations, including many oils and syrups. The third work, Thesaurus aromatariorum by Paulus de Suardis (fl. 1479-1481), gives recipes for about 500 aromatic medicines, oils, syrups, etc. The three together formed what was probably the most extensive pharmacological encyclopaedia of its day.With early owner's inscriptions on title-page. First few leaves heavily browned and foxed and the second part of the work with water stains, but otherwise in good condition. The binding has been recased, but retaining the original endpapers and in very good condition. Seller Inventory # HCHAFJODW4GG

Spine with raised bands forming six compartments; ink manuscript label on two; all edges speckled brown; endpapers watermarked. , Text in Latin. The first work is a commentary on what were basically works of great ancient physicians of the Near East and Mediterranean, the nature and preparation, and measurement of plants used in their medical practice as ingredients in antidotes to heal certain conditions, thereby mainly focusing on the ?Antidotarium? and practices of the great ?Ioannis Mesue? as mentioned in the title, or Mesue the Elder, or Yohanna-Ibn-Masaway. The second work is by the physician Quirico de Augustis de Terthona or Certhona; it provides scores of recipes with detail on dosage for the preparation of medications; the work addresses physicians and apothecaries critically, accusing them of professional incompetence and malintent. The editor of this work has depth of knowledge of Arabic and Greek and provides meticulous translation of names of ingredients and preparations, a rare thing among medical works of the time. It is a foundational work for modern posology, pointing to the need of dosage against the casual administration of drugs by apothecaries.

A note by him on leaf 73 73v refers to previous works he had prepared for the press, including the second edition of Galenus? collected works, just published.

Luminare maius. Cinthius ut totum radiis illuminat: MANILIO, Giovanni Giacomo

About this Item: Goff M210; GW M20651; Klebs 662.4 (mis-dated "[1499]"); WorldCat 30979532 (no location); cf. E. Sordano, Il Luminare maius di Manlio del Bosco, thesis, University of Torino (2010), p. 40. Rare early post-incunable edition of two important treatises on pharmacology and medical botany, apparently the first edition to combine the two and the first edited by Hieronymus Surianus (fl. 1458?, d. 1522?). The first work, Luminare maius by Giovanni Giacomo Manlio di Bosco (fl. 1490-post 1500), is a commentary on ancient Arabic and Greek pharmacological works, especially the Arabic treatises of Yuhanna Ibn Masawayh (ca. 777-857), a Nestorian Christian physician from Assyria who was the personal physician to four caliphs. It gives instructions for preparing numerous medicines, indicating the quantities of the ingredients and describing each ingredient. The second work, Lumen apothecariorum by Quirico de Augustis de Tortona of Milan (fl. 1486-1497), complements it with descriptions of hundreds of medicinal preparations, including many oils and syrups. Little is known about either Manlio or Augustis. Surianus edited their treatises and prepared the first two editions of the two together for Lissona/Vercellensis in Venice.With an early manuscript note and shelf-mark on the title-page and a few early manuscript paragraph marks in the margins. Lacking leaf B4, but otherwise in good condition, with small worm holes in the first 5 leaves, some mostly marginal water stains, minor spotting and an occasional sheet slightly browned. Rare edition of two important pharmacological treatises. Seller Inventory # H83F7C91Q5X2
