Maria Chiara Succurro
The Liber Compostelle is an alchemical encyclopedia associated with the name of Bonaventura of Iseo, a friar of great reputation and an esteemed preacher around the middle of the thirteenth century. It is one of the first works to show an interest in medicine and pharmacology among the Friars Minor. Despite its importance, the Liber Compostelle has never been published. This article investigates the textual history of the treatise, and the problems of its authorship and dating, examining the eight manuscripts that contain the Liber...

The Polish alchemist Michael Sendivogius is best known for the influential Novum lumen chymicum, a work composed of three separate texts. Sendivogius's authorship was questioned in the mid-seventeenth century, and these reservations are still held by some modern historians. On the other hand, other early modern and modern readers not only accepted his authorship of all three texts, but also ascribed as many as eleven texts to him. This paper discusses the key works published under the anagrammatised name of Sendivogius with the aim of resolving the authorship question...

Isabella Whitworth, Zvi C Koren
A two-century-old archive relating to a Leeds dye manufacturer emerged a number of years ago from a Devon attic. Most items in the archive date from the mid-nineteenth century to the first quarter of the twentieth, a period of dye history when natural dyes overlapped with and were gradually replaced by synthetics. The archive contains material relevant to three generations of the Bedford family's manufacturing and research successes, as well as its close connections to the family of William Henry Perkin. A major portion of the archive's contents is connected to the trade in orchil, a purple-producing dye from a lichen on which the early fortunes of the company were based...

Sébastien Moureau, Nicolas Thomas
The article aims to show how experimentation can help us understand historical texts, by focusing on the specific case of cupellation in Arabic scientific literature. It also provides new information about cupellation in the Arab-Muslim Middle Ages. The article consists of translations of three of the most detailed accounts of cupellation: Hamdānī's Kitāb al-jawharatayn al-'atīqatayn (first half of the fourth/tenth century), Maslama b. Qāsim al-Qurṭubī, Rutbat al-ḥakīm (339-342/950-953), and Manṣūr b...

Nils-Otto Ahnfelt, Hjalmar Fors
Historians of science and medicine have rarely applied themselves to reproducing the experiments and practices of medicine and pharmacy. This paper delineates our efforts to reproduce "Swedish Bitters," an early modern composite medicine in wide European use from the 1730s to the present. In its original formulation, it was made from seven medicinal simples: aloe, rhubarb, saffron, myrrh, gentian, zedoary and agarikon. These were mixed in alcohol together with some theriac, a composite medicine of classical origin...
