I. Ferguson II, 63; Gardner 418; Kloss 2479; Caillet 6995; Wolfstieg 42294; Ackermann IV, 122; Rosenthal 570 ("tres rare"). - First edition, first issue (date not yet altered into 1619 by hand).

Erste Ausgabe und grosse Seltenheit der alchemistisch-rosenkreuzerischen Literatur, zumal wie hier im ersten Druck. Viele andere Exemplare haben die Jahreszahl 1616 handschr. in "1619" verändert. Maier, Leibarzt des dänischen Königs, gehört zu den frühesten glühenden Propagandisten des Rosenkreuzertums. Ein fiktiver Dialog zwischen auf S. 6 genannten Vögeln unter Führung der weisen Eule über die Führung der geistigen Welt. Die Titelvignette, von Ackermann de Bry zugeschrieben, aber auch im Stil des jungen Merian, zeigt Hermes mit einem Kollegium von Tieren.
II. Ferguson I, 119; Duveen p.89; Waller 15422; NLM/Krivatsy 1548; Wellcome II, 206. - First edition.

"His works on the history of chemistry are still of use." (Ferguson). - Visit our website for additional images and information.
