    More Information:

    Wedel (1645-1721) physician, professor of medicine at Jena, "He was distinguished for his comprehensive learning, success as a practitioner, unceasing labour as professor and author, for his great modesty, recitude, and beneficence to the poor... he was a strong supporter of the iatro-chemical principles of De la Boe Sylvius. But he was also a staunch believer in alchemy, assigning it to great antiquity, and considering that it was concealed even in the myths of the ancients." [Ferguson] VD 17 1:1004773F. Bruning 2529. Ferguson II, 536. Duveen 614 (1st ed.)
