¶The Prologue of Laurence andrew the Translatour.

AFter dyuers & sondry small volumes & tryfeles of mytth & p••¦taūce / Som newly composed / some translated and of late finis¦shed / Now mynded to excercise my pen̄e in mater to the rede¦som what more {pro}fytable / I haue chosen amonge all other the booke of distyllacyon of waters / wrytten by the thyrty yere labour of master Iherom Beunswyke / to Translate into En∣glysshe. Not thinkynge (thoughe paraduenture some in that parte will take it) that my knowlege in these two tongues is suche that I of all other to this Translacion sholde be moste mete / but only beynge moued with na∣turall loue vnto my contre / whiche surely shold want if I were able to perform it / no profytablebooke for lacke of a Translatoure / that is in an other language wrytten. For me thynke where the masters in all Science expert wyll take no su¦che paynes / it is nat dyscomēdable for a man of more base lernyng to putte to his helpyng hande. It is na olde saynge / though power often doth fayle / A wyllynge harte is to be accepted. The whiche onys well remembred. Spare not fauourable reder to pursue and reuolue to thy synguler helthe / conforte / and lernynge / this booke of distyllacyon. Lerne the hygh and meruelous vertue of herbes / knowe how inestimable a preseruatyue to the helth of man god hath prouyded growyng euery daye at our hande / vse the effectes with reuerence / and giue thankes to the maker celestyall. Beholde how moch it excedeth to vse medecyne of efycacye na∣turall by god ordeyned then wicked wordes or charmes of efycacye vnnaturall by the dyuell enuented. whiche yf thou doste well marke / thou shalt haue occasy¦on to gyue the more louynges & praise to oure fauyour / by redynge this boke and knowlegyng his benyfites innumerable / To whose prayse / and helthe of all my crysten bretherne / I haue taken vpon me this symple translacyon / with all hum¦ble reuerence / euer redy to submit me to the correccion of the lerned rede

¶Here begynneth the fyrst part of this oe / wher in is comprehendyd the no∣ble scyence & the trewe dystyllacyons of waters / and other dyuers thynges arty∣••cyallys

¶The fyrste chaptre shewyth what dys¦tyllacyon is. Ca. i.

IN the fyrst it is nedefull to be expressyd and she∣wed what dystyllyng is for it belōgeth to all ma¦ner of people to vnder∣stande and knowe the cause of that thynge that they begynne or enterpryse to worke vpon / to the en∣tente that he maye haue a perfyt know∣lege of suche workes as he begynneth / how he maye brenge it to a good ende.

¶Wherfore it is to be vnderstande that dystyllyng is none other thyng / but one¦ly a puryfyeng of the grosse from the sub¦tyll / & the subtyll frome the grosse / eche seperatly from other / & to the entēt that the corruptyble shall be made incorrup∣tyble / and to make the materyall inma¦teryall / & the quycke spyryte to be made morequycker / bycause it sholde the soner perce & passe thrugh by the vertue of his great goodnes and strengthe that there in is sonke and hydde for the cōceyuyng of his helthfull operacyon in the body of man / for Dystyllacyon is an elementall thyng / for thrugh the mouynge of the na¦turall heuyns / eueryone muste be natu∣rally gouerned by the bodyes aboue ly∣kewise the body of man thrugh an exper¦te mayster in medecyne / and thrugh the waters that ther ben deuyded from the grossenes of the herbes eche in his substā¦ce / & that to be cōueyed to the place most nedefull for helth & cōfort / lyke as here af¦ter more dylygently shall be declared.

¶Wherfore dystyllynge is founde and ordeynened Ca. ii.

DYstyllynge is necessaryly founde and ordeined for many maner of necessytees / and specyally for the loue of man hym for to kepe in helth & strengthe and to brynge the seke and weke body agayne to helthe / and to the entent that the grosse and corruptyble body maye be agayn clensed and puryfyed / for who so euer taketh herbes / rotes / or other sub∣staunces and stampe them / the iuce ther of strayned and mynystred is not sightly whiche many one therfore dothe them ab¦horre / bycause of the inconuenyent syght

¶In howe many maners may be dystylled Ca. iii.

IT is nedefull with shorte cōclusyō to shewe the moste expecte & comō or lyghtyst way of dystyllyng / to the en∣tent that the reder or lerner shold vnder stande me without any murmuracyon or longe rehersyng. Wherfore I haue two maners of wayes wherin is cōprehēdyd in brefe the shortyst way of dystyllacion ¶The fyrst is how it may be done in fy∣ue maner of wayes without any cost.

The second waye with cost onely of fyre and that also in fyue maners

¶The fyrst without cost / is done thrugh a threcorned fylte / named per filrri distil¦lacionē The second maner of the fyrste way is this. A glas fylled vpon another glas tourned with the bottom vpward / & well stopped / set or so hāgyd in the son¦ne / is named per solis distillacionem

The thyrde of the fyrst waye is / A glas fyllyd & well stoppyd wrought in dowgh and so set in the ouen whan the brede is baking / & is named {per} panis distillacionē

The fourthe maner of the fyrste waye is / A glas the thyrde parte fyllyd / well stoppyd / and buryed in horse downge / & is named / per fim equi distillacionem.

The fyfte maner of the fyrste waye is A glas fyllyd well stoppyd buryed in an antehyll / named {per} formice distillacionē.

¶The fyrste maner of the seconde waye is of the dystyllynge with fyre / as thus. A glas reasonably fyllyd and set in wa∣ter / vnder it a fyre made / & ther vpō an helme or Alēbick set / named distillacio {per} balneū marie or distillacio in duplovase

The second maner of the seconde way is / ye shall put to the same water that the glas standeth in / horse downge / thā shall it be named / distillacio per ventrem equinum.

The thyrde maner of the second way is / Set your glas in a capell wher as syfted asshes be in / named distillacio per Sineres. The fourthe maner of the seconde waye is / ye shall put sande for as¦shes in the capell where as the glas shall stande in / & is called distillacio {per} arenam

The fyfte maner of the seconde way is / ye shall set boldely the glas vpō the fyre / & nothyng betweyn the fyre and it but onely an yron grate or an yron tre∣uet / and is named distillacio per ignem.

Thus yr haue the maners of the .ii. wayes of dystyllacyons with cost & with out cost. How be it many more maners ther be to dystylle / wayes out of nombre wherof the Alkemystes aparte can testy fye / and is to theym well beknowen.

¶How longe the waters may be kepte in substaunce.

Also the water of Ne¦nufar a flowre which is growyng in the ryuers hauyng a great rounde grene le¦fe / whiche flowres be somtyme yelowe / somtyme white / and whan the flowres fall the sede of them is closed in a roun∣de botton lyke a small gorde / or an vry∣nall / may endere in his colde operacyon to the fourth yere / the fyrst yere to be lay¦de withoute vpon the dysseases / for it is halfe poyson or venym thrughe his graet coldnes or stupefactyfe / the seconde yere it may be vsed withn the body for to cole In the thyrde yere his colynge is tempe¦rate / and in the ende of the thyrde yere it shall be cast out / but it must be wel kept and rectyfyed as before is specyfyed.

All suche to confort and supportacyon of theyr infyrmytees / tyll that they maye gette an experte and lerned physycyon / or maystar in medycyn / to whom the sekenes or dysseases be well be knowen / & also the cōmplexyons of the dysseased bo∣dyes / whether they come of hete / of drowght / of moystour / or of coldnes The whiche is farre from the know¦lege of the onlerned people. Also yf the people can gette no physycyons nor medicyns / yet I wyll shew som maner of wayes to be holpē thrughe the experyence that I haue founde by vsynge of the waters / whiche is nother heuy nor shadefull to be my∣nystred / for they haue not the appen¦dynge gowtes of laxatyfe medycyns or reseptes / lyke wyse the substaun∣ces of ther corpus be not mynistred in the body / but onely thrugh a loue¦ly & fayr maner well pleasyng to the pacyent / as I haue shewed before in the .ii. chapytre of the fyrste boke / but moch better it were and more {pro}fyta¦ble to folowe the lerned medycynes or physycyōs whā they may be gottē O good lorde how oftē haue I sene an onlerned physycion mynystre his medicines that knewe nor dysseases nor yet the complexyō but ministred hete to hete / thrugh the which the na¦turall moistour was spente / and the body dried away & cōsumed or moy∣stour to moystour / thrugh the which the body cotted awaye / or colde / by the which the naturall hete that shol¦de preserue the life of man is hole my nyssed and brought to nought / for the holy prohphet Iob sayth that the lyfe of man is plāted for to dye a na∣turall dethe with out any payne / yf he may attayne his naturall lyfe vn¦to the deth / the whiche may so well come to purpose / by an expert & ler∣ned maister or physycyon. Wherfore I maruell for that any wyse perso∣ne of vnderstondynge / can fynde in his harte to gyue hymselfe to fowlysh¦ly ouer into the handys of any suche onlerned mayster / that knoweth no¦ther begynynge / myddest / nor ende of medicynes not complexyōs. Thus I counsell you and instantly requy¦re you / that ye cast not away ignorā¦tely the p̄cyous yuwell of your natu¦rallyfe / that almyghty god had crea¦ted & planted in you naturally to be kept with suche graces as he therto had gyuen you / therwith to be pre∣serued.
