He is world renowned for his 'Neues Arzneybuch', originally published in Heidelberg in 1568. It was first translated into Dutch in Dordrecht in 1589. Wirtsung was one of the first to investigate pancreatic fluid. His book was translated by C. Battus [Carel Baten], medicial doctor of the city of Dordrecht, born in Gent. He also translated Guillemeau and Paré. Baten was one of the first skilled doctors and pioneers who published translated medical works in Dutch, although this did not always meet with approval from those surrounding him who had more to gain by a status quo. With extensive Latin and Dutch indices. The cookery book at the end [following the 3 indices, in 13 leaves folio] is titled 'Eenen seer schoonen/ ende excelenten Cock boeck/ inhoudende alderleye wel gheexperimenteerde cokagien/ van ghebraet, gesoden/ Pasteyen, Taerten/ Toerten/ Vlaeijen/ Saussen/ Sopen/ en dier-gelijcke: Ooc diversche Confeytueren ende Drancken/ etc.'
