“History of the yerbas and plants, taken from Dioscoride Anazarbeo and other famous authors, with the Greek, Latin and Spanish names by Juan Xarava”, Antwerp, 1557.
History of Herbs and Plants taken from Dioscorides Anarzabeo, by Juan de Jaraba. Interesting and beautiful facsimile edition made by the publishing house Siloé in 2005 of a work that connects with the numerous paramedical bibliography of a particularly rich time in these matters. The original work, De historia stirpium, by the German Leonhart Fuchs, soon featured numerous translations and adaptations in an environment in which the great Flemish publishers rivaled in the popular language dissemination of the great scientific treatises. Juan de Jaraba was in his day who adapted and published this work in Spanish in 1557.
