'Jean de Renou, latinized Renodaeus, of Coutances in Normandy, studied and graduated at Paris, became Royal Councillor and Physician, and was specially devoted to pharmacy. He did a good deal for it (...). His works were translated into French by Louis de Serres, who places him above all his predecessors in the same walk (...). He overturned a multitude of popular errors about the virtues of plants and minerals, though he himself was not devoid of some erroneous notions. Numerous editions of the 'Dispensatorium' are recorded: Paris, 1608, Frankfurt, 1609, 1615, Paris, 1623, Hanau, 1631. The works were printed with Josephus Quercetanus' 'Pharmacopoeia dogmaticorum', edited by Peter Uffenbach'.
