<title> SUMMARY </title>New information is given on the life of Hubert Francis Hoefer, chemist at the Court of the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo of Lorraine, is given. Up to now, very little was known about his private life; even the date of his birth and death were unknown.Inquiring into this field it was observed that the Tabula affinitatum, now in the Florence's Museo di Storia della Scienza, was commissioned by Hoefer himself and hung in the Court pharmacy. The table, that originates from the one published by Geoffroy in 1718, is also discussed from the chemical point of view in consideration of contemporary knowledge.
