"Many of the recorded works by Kräutermann were issued after Hellwig's death in 1721, the latest 1793. Most of these are new eds. but some do not appear to have been published previously. Despite the existence of prefaces signed Kraütermann and dated 1723 and 1733, most authorities from Jöcher and Seguier onwards have assigned the works to C. von Hellwig and a note by his son Johann Gottlob on p. 87 of 'Nosce te ipsum' (1744) supports the attribution ('in meinem seel. Vaters Comp. Medicinae Renunciatur). (Wellcome III: p. 240). - This edition not in Wellcome. - Waller 4286 (1710-edition). Not in Simon and Vicaire.
