HISTORY: This volume focuses on medical uses of herbs and plants. This monumental work is credited to Bartolomeo Montagnana (1450–1523) Montagnana worked as an artist, and an engraver. The series is believed to be published in Madrid by Johannes Pruess, in 1497. The text pertaining to nutmeg is divided into two brief sections. Under the first section, "Capitulum.cceiiii" ~ {N}Ux Muscata (translates to nutmeg) provides derivational knowledge of the spice, which is traced back in time through India. Within the second section "Operationes," nutmeg is described useful to "do good and improve smell" and in the "reduction of flatulence, the aide to digest food, to settle the stomach, and cleanse the liver."
