Traicté du tabac, ou nicotiane, panacee, petun: autrement Herbe à la Reyne, Avec sa preparation & son usage, pour la Plus part des indispositions du corps humain, ensemble les diverses façons de le falsifier, & les marques pour le recognoistre. (...) Auquel avons adiousté un Traicté de la [thériaque et ingrediens d'icelle]. French translation by I.V. Lyon, Barthelemy Vincent, 1626, 2 parts in 1 vol., (8),343,(1); 313,(4)p., 9 (fold.) engr. plates, contemp. limp vellum w. orange letterpiece on spine.

- Both parts yellowed/ sl. browned; a few scattered foxed spots; erased stamp on title-p. (affecting the title of the second work) and crossed out shelf no. on verso title-p.; traces of red ticket at foot of spine.

= Two very rare treatises on tobacco and on the ancient medical concoction known as "theriac". The first title is present in the first edition of the French translation by Jacques Veyras. Arents 148: "The Tabacologiae consolidated much of the information (some of it inaccurate) provided by Liébault, Monardes, Gohory (....) and others. The long list of authorities cited indicates that the author made an intensive study of his subject, but his literary and scientific nourishment (common to his age) was derived chiefly from Hippocrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Galen. (...) The philosopher-doctor was opposed, as usual, to the use of tobacco except medicinally. On the subject of his therapeutic value he often became rhapsodic. (...) The little that is new in this treatise is of very definite value in the history of tobacco, and that little is rendered more impressive by the novel and accurate illustrations which decorate the work. Among them are the earliest representations known to us of American natives engaged in cultivating and curing tobacco, of curious pipes, and of the kalian of Persia." SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CLIII. The second treatise, written by L. CATELAN and probably first published in 1607 as "Démonstrations publiques des ingrédients de la Thériaque", was the first public demonstration of the making of theriac, a potent medicine for all sorts of diseases. Its ingredients were shrouded in secrecy for the public until Catelan demonstrated how it was made. Ferchl p. 88f.

= Rare first and only edition of a treatise on tobacco. Arents II, 414: "The original intention of the author was to refute Van Peima [Tabacologica] chapter by chapter, but he decided to write as a naturalist and treat particularly of the tobacco plant. All the elements or factors which affect plants are explained or discussed: the movements of celestial bodies, climate, parthenogenesis, etc. An account of the origin of tobacco, its nomenclature, species and varieties, physical characteristics, cultivation, preparation, curing, chemical composition (of tobacco and other plants), comparative medicinal values, etc., etc. are all fully given in separate chapters".
