Paracelsus [1493-1541] was the German-Swiss physician and alchemist who established the role of chemistry in medicine. He was born the only son of an impoverished German doctor and chemist. His father taught chemistry at a local school affiliated with mining operations in gold, tin, mercury and other metals. He also attended school there, where he learned about metallurgy and chemistry. This experience no doubt laid the foundation for his later writings in the field of chemotherapy.
His medical achievements were outstanding. He wrote the best clinical description of syphilis available in 1530. He was the first to declare that, if given in small does, "what makes a man ill also cures him." He was the first to connect goiter with minerals, especially lead, in drinking water. Jung called him a pioneer in the domain of chemical medicine.
John Ferguson (1837-1916), who was Regius Professor of Chemistry at Glasgow University, is well known among scholars for his bibliographic survey of alchemical books the Bibliotheca Chemica published in 1906.
This bibliography trades very infrequently. Originally published in six parts from 1877 to 1896, only 100 to 150 copies of each of the six parts were printed. To our knowledge it has never been available before in reprint. In all, 162 books are described. Bestermann 4434. Co-published with Krown & Spellman, Booksellers
