About this Item: Basileae, apud Mich(aelis) Isingrinium, 1539., 1539. in-8. 24ff. 578pp. 54ff. Veau brun, dos à nerfs, décor à froid sur les plats, étiquette manuscrite au dos (Reliure de l'époque Première traduction "moderne" du célèbre ouvrage de Dioscoride, due au médecin français Jean Ruel. Elle fut constamment réimprimée pendant la Renaissance. Né à Soissons en 1479, mort en 1537, Ruel fut médecin de François Ier et régent de la Faculté de Médecine de Paris. Dioscorides, médecin grec du Ier ou II siècle avant J.C. s'occupa essentiellement de botanique et de pharmacie. Il avait fait des collections de plantes recueillies au cours de voyages en Grèce, en France, en Italie et dans l'Asie Mineure. Dans son traité, dont les éditions se multiplièrent pendant plusieurs siècles, il décrit plus de 600 plantes avec leurs propriétés. Jean Ruel, né à Soissons en 1479, mort en 1537, était médecin de François Ier. Il était également botaniste et composa un inventaire des connaissances botaniques de l'époque sous le titre de "De Natura Stirpium libri tres". Charles Plumier donnera en son honneur, son nom à une plante (Ruellia). Ex-libris manuscrit sur la marge supérieure du titre : "Ex Biblioth. Gaspar Fromentii, 1600". Il s'agit probablement de Gaspard Froment, docteur régent à l'Université de Valence, auteur d'un texte contre les jésuites intitulé : "Avertissement pour les Universités de France contre les Jésuites. Au Roy" (1624). Bon était intérieur. La reliure de l'époque, solide, est frottée, les coins émoussés, avec des manques aux charnières. Seller Inventory # 92042

De medica materia libri sex.Lyon, Thibaud Payen: DIOSCORIDES, Pedanius.

About this Item: USTC 149757 (1 copy); cf. T. Glick, Medieval science, technology and medicine: an encyclopedia, p. 152; not in Baudrier; Durling; SUDOC; WorldCat. Extremely rare pocket edition of Jean Ruel's translation into Latin of Dioscorides's standard work on pharmacology, the most important botanical book up on to the 16th century. This is the first issue with the date on the title-page saying 1546, colophon 1547. Dioscorides (ca. 40-90 AD), a Greek in the service of the Roman Empire, assembled all that was then known concerning the medicinal uses of plants, animals and minerals, adding information from his own experience accompanying the Roman army to Spain, the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere, where he came to know many Persian, Indian and other exotic medicines. Though his work appeared in Latin from 1478 and in the original Greek from 1499, the present translation by Jean Ruel was first published at Paris in 1516. "Often considered a herbal, [it] deals with all three natural kingdoms: plant, mineral and animal. It describes all the substances known to Dioscorides that were used as primary ingredients for medicines, and constitutes an encyclopedia on the topic" (Glick).With owner's inscription on title-page and paste-down. Some minor water stains in the gutter and in the margins of some of the first and last leaves, otherwise in good condition. Binding rebacked, as noted, and in very good condition.
