Description

np (1770), Np, 1770. "DAS GEHEIMNISS VON DEM SALZ, als dem Edelsten Wesen der Hochsten Wohlthat Gottes in dem Reich der Natur, beides in Seinem Wesen und in Seinen Eigenschaften aus eigener Bemuhung Untersucht. Gottlicher Weissheit zum Lobe und den Begierigen Forschern zum Vortheil Geschrieben und Herausgegeben von Elias Artista Hermetica." bound in leatherette. photocopy of the 1770 publication. 142pp. The Mystery of Salt is a foundational classic of mystic German natural philosophy by the great Pietist figure Oetinger, and an early work in the anti-Cartesian German tradition of intuitive science, which would later come to full flower in Goethe. This photocopy comes from the library of the South African alchemist and homeopathic doctor Leonard F. Pembroke with a few very neat penciled notes in the margins and his small library number at back and tiny bits of glue residue at the foot of the spine. Some of his photocopies were poorly done but this one is clear and perfectly legible. The binding is an odd pastiche of a fine binding with gilt lettered spine, laid paper ep's and blind rules on the covers. According to his receipt book he paid $55.00 just for the binding, most of his copies were made himself at either the British Library of the London Library or Dr. Williams' Library. The book is rare, only one copy in WorldCat.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us. He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with that all-important business contact."
