In the final, icy side-remark Sambucus refers to the affair of a missing rare manuscript of Dioscorides Pedianus’ De materia medica, a Greek encyclopedia about the medicinal uses of plants and animals. 75 Sambucus had borrowed it for his preparations of an edition of the text. 76 By then, the campaign for the librarianship had been going on for at least some months. For many reasons the emperor’s decision to appoint Blotius must have been a severe setback for Sambucus. In the first place, he must have felt betrayed, especially by Crato and Blotius.

For many reasons the emperor’s decision to appoint Blotius must have been a severe setback for Sambucus. In the first place, he must have felt betrayed, especially by Crato and Blotius.
