Commentarii in Sex Libros Pedacii Dioscoridis Anazarbei de Medica Materia, jam Denuo ab Ipso Autore Recogniti, et Locis Plus Mille Aucti. Vol. II


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This commentary on Dioscorides' De materia medica by Pietro Andrea Matthioli (1500–77), first written in Italian and subsequently translated into Latin, French, German, and Spanish, included new medicinal plants and detailed woodcut illustrations, as in this example of Thymelaea (Spurge-laurel). Matthioli's printed commentary was largely responsible for disseminating the writings and ideas of Dioscorides–in both word and image–across Europe.
