Pietro Mattioli was an important 16th-century Tuscan physician whose medical and botanical treatises were reliable and accurate for centuries after first published. Perhaps his most famous treatise, ‘Kreutterbuch’ is one of the most important illustrated herbal and horticultural books to ever be published. According to ‘Heirs of Hippocrates,’

“In this commentary on Dioscorides, Mattioli prepared what many authorities now regard as the encyclopedia of Renaissance pharmacology. He studied hundreds of plants, examined and described them fully, added many new species, and provided excellent illustrations which were far superior to those of any previous work in the field.” (HoH 141)

 

Mattioli included descriptions of other scientific studies such as fluid and water distillation all of which are illustrated with nearly 1500 woodcut figures throughout!
