Rare first edition of this epitome of Daniel Sennert's works edited by Claude Bonnet, a professor of medicine at Avignon. Bonnet reduced Sennert's tomes to one volume and expurgated them for use by Roman Catholics. Sennert had been accused of heresy by Johannes Freiburg, professor of medicine at Helmstaedt, because he had held that the souls of animals as well as men were created by God out of nothing, but in the end he had been acquitted from all charges.

Daniel Sennert was a German physician, alchemist and chemist. He held the position of professor of medicine at the University of Wittenberg for many years, serving six times as dean of the medical faculty. He also served as personal physician to many rulers, including John George I, Elector of Saxony. He died of the plague in 1637 in Wittenberg.

Sennert is notable for his contributions to the development of an early version of the atomic theory, for giving one of the earliest accounts of scarlatina, for his contributions to the knowledge of scurvy, dysentery and alcoholism, as well as for his chemical and alchemical experiments. Among his publications are the Institutiones medicinae (1611), the Epitome scientiae naturalis (1618), the De chymicorum cum Aristotelicis et Galenicis consensu ac dissensu (1619), the six volumes of the Practicae medicinae (1635), and the Hypomnemata physicae (1636).
