Compendio de los Boticarios

The Compendio de los Boticarios or “Compendium of the Apothecaries” was published on November 25th, 1515, but some typographic details indicate that it was not put on the market until a later date. Some elements appear to have been printed at a later time, specifically after the arrival of Charles V (1500-58) in Spain in the autumn of 1517. The identity of the translator remains unknown, although he is believed to be a doctor from Tudela who was also responsible for translating the Servidor by Albuchasis. The treatise, concerned with the manufacture of remedies, contains the names and details of many plants found in Spain and explains several of the chemical processes involved.
