TAPIN, Richard (tah-pang), Flemish physician, born in the duchy of Luxembourg about 1515 ; died there in 1590. He received his education in Flanders, and early entered the Portuguese service, being employed as surgeon on board ships that sailed to the Indies. At the time of the invasion of Admiral Villegaignon, he was in Brazil as surgeon of the king, and he practised his profession afterward with great success, holding several important offices in the colony. After his return to Europe he published a curious work, "Colloquios dos simples e drogas do Brazil" (Coimbra, 1566), which enjoyed a great reputation for about a century in a revised and completed French version, " Histoire des drogues, espiceries, et de certains medicaments et simples qui croissent es Bresil, province de l'Amerique" (Paris, 1590).
