JOANNES AGRICOLAE P. & M. D.


Commentaries, Notes, and Observations


Regarding, the CHYMICAL MEDICINE


of JOHANNES POPPIUS



Wherein all processes are carefully examined, corrected of errors, and augmented and illustrated by several hundred new processes and secret manipulations taken from his own experience,



Where also the right use of medicines is verified by several hundred case histories,in addition to a complete revelation of what is to be done with them in surgery, and alchemy, or the transmutations of metals.For all persons of respectability, physicians, surgeons, chymists, barbers, army-surgeons, horse-doctors, goldsmiths, and all householders most useful to read and use. Oportet sapietiam transferre ad medicinam, & medicinam ad sapientiam. Medicus enim Philosophus est Deo aequalis.

Quote of the Day

“Every body is dissolved with the spirit that is joined to it, and doubtless also becomes spiritual. And every spirit is modified and coloured by bodies, to which spirit is thus added a tinging colour which stands the test of fire.”
