520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc This work is the prototype of most of the later editions in Latin and other languages. It is often regarded as a translation of the German Herbarius or Ortus Sanitatis, printed by Peter Schöffer at Mainz early in 1485 (and possibly compiled by Johann de Cube), but is larger and consists of the following parts: (1) Prohemium; (2) a treatise on herbs in 530 chapters; (3) a treatise on land animals in 164 chapters; (4) a treatise on birds in 122 chapters; (5) a treatise on fishes, etc., in 106 chapters; (6) a treatise on stones and minerals in 144 chapters; (7) a treatise on urines; an index of diseases referring to each division of the book separately; an alphabetical index to each part; and concludes with an epilogue by the printer, Jacob Meydenbach. The work contains 1066 chapters. The chapters begin with a description of the plant/animal/bird/etc., its synonyms, and often something about its geographical origin, taken from various authors. The medicinal properties are described in a separate section headed "Operationes"
