€ 750
Very rare sixth edition of the Dutch translation of the Pharmacopoea Leovardiensis first published in Latin in 1687 and completely revised and expanded for the Dutch translation by Feyo Johannes Winter. The Dutch translation of this pharmacopeia proved very popular throughout the country, superseding those of Amsterdam, Utrecht and The Hague. The translation of the present edition seems to be altered in comparison with the third edition.
With the bookplate of Wilhelm F. Daems (1911-1994), a pioneer of anthroposophic pharmacy and an authority on the history of medicine and pharmacy. A restoration in the fore-edge margin of a leaf in the register and some occasional minor thumbing, otherwise in very good condition.
Daems & Vanderwiele, p. 146; STCN (3 copies); V. Eeghen & V.d. Kellen 835; WorldCat (2 copies, incl. 1 the same).
