“The Baboon is an evil natured beast, and will imitate all human actions, they delight much to wear garments, are lustful as goats, and will attempt to lye with all sorts of women!”

– William Salmon, Seplasium

 

A very rare and important 17th-century book on medicine, pharmacology, minerology, zoology, and botany by William Salmon. Salmon, the self-proclaimed “Professor of Physick” as known for his plethora of medical texts, mostly pertaining to the use of classical medical techniques.

 

Salmon deviates from his norm in this work by exploring other natural sciences. While most of his writing comes from a medical understanding, he ventures into topics such as:

  • Making of white lead, brass, and silver
  • Making of beer and ale
  • Extracting phosphorus out of urine
  • Making gunpowder
  • Sugar refining
  • Sources of diseases; particularly rare gemstones and tobacco
  • Animal behaviors
  • Cryptozoology: Unicorns, satyrs and lycopanthers

 

However, because of his focus on medicine he does present an article on animals and plants and their medical properties and healing salves. According to Alden, this book is a good reference for West Indian plants and medicines.
