Silografia, coloritura coeva, mm 160x220. L’opera del medico senese, nata come commento a Dioscoride assunse, grazie alle numerose aggiunte relative alle nuove piante scoperte, notevole fama e fu una delle opere più importanti del secolo. Le belle illustrazioni derivano dall’edizione del 1555 e sono opera di Giorgio Liberale. "Mattioli's commentary on Dioscorides' text was aimed largely at the practical purpose of medicinal phytognosis and acquired intrinsic value both through the wealth of its descriptive details of each plant and through its accurate drawings. Mattioli may therefore be considered a member of the Vesalian school of morphological observation." (DSB). Antico restauro ad un angolo.
