Antidotarium Medico-Chymicum Reformatum
Johann Daniel Mylius
Johann Daniel Mylius was an alchemist and chemist during a time, the early seventeenth century, when these two pursuits were often practiced simultaneously by those with an interest in chemical properties. As a result, his works on alchemy are studied today for their symbolic systems, while his works on medical chemistry
are well known for their use of chemical formulas. The work examined here, from 1620, is a compendium of work about the uses of chemistry in medicine. It appeared two years before the publication of his
Reformation of Philosophy that contains much of his work in alchemy. A popular two-volume pharmacopeia was published in 1665.
