MIZAULD, Antoine (1510-1578) . Artificiosa methodus comparandorum hortensium, fructuum, olerum, radicum, vuarum, vinorum, carnium & insculorum . Paris: Fédéric Morel, 1575. The first edition of one of the most interesting works by Antonio Mizauld, the prolific Paris astronomer and physician . He taught medicine in Paris, and was a close friend to Oronce Finé, as well as the personal physician and astrologer to Marguerite de Valois, Queen of France. The first part of this work deals with vegetable purgatives; the second part is devoted to the use and preparation of aromatic and medicinal wines including treatments for venereal diseases such as ‘morbus hispanicus.’ The use of the book is made easy thanks to a very detailed index. Rare: according to ABPC only one copy has appeared at auction in the last 35 years. Adams M1494; Dumoulin, 243; NLM/Durling, 3191; see Bitting, p. 327 (second edition only). Octavo (160 x 94mm). (Some pale staining and soiling to title, some shoulder notes cropped, minor light browning throughout.) Contemporary sheep-backed marbled boards (worn). Provenance : Cornelius J. Hauck (1893-1967).
