patrimonit.jpg PATRIMONiT
PATRIMONiT is a database of rare or unique sixteenth-century Italian popular editions held today in the British Library (i.e. not surviving in any Italian libraries). It is modelled on the Material Evidence in Incunabula (MEI) database and constructed using international standards for describing the material, textual, and visual characteristics of sixteenth-century Italian popular books and their provenance history'.

This database, created by Sabrina Minuzzi, focusses on materia medica. This is the body of knowledge concerning the medicinal properties principally of plants, but also of animals and minerals that formed the basis for making medical remedies. The research is being carried out on Italian manuscripts and printed books of the early 16th and 17th centuries pertaining to two genres - herbals and recipe books - with the aim of tracing the actual circulation of knowledge about local and exotic healing plants in Early Modern Italy.
