Brief des Klausenburger Apothekers Tobias Mauksch aus 1750 an den Nürnberger Stadtarzt und Gelehrten Christoph Jacob Trew
Physician and scientist Christoph Jacob Trew (1695-1769) is regarded as one of the most important knowledge
steward and communicators of science during the eighteenth century in the German-speaking countries. He
founded his professional commitment on his extensive correspondence and rich collection of letter (>19.000)
that closely connected him and anchored in to the contemporary European world of scholars. This study
presents a short letter (1750) that was sent him from his former guest the well-known pharmacist Tobias
Mauksch (1727-1802) at Klausenburg (Cluj-Napoca in Romanian). Both men are introduced and the contents
of the letter are critically commented.
