Book ID: 5569, 5569
5569 Croll, Oswald. BASILICA CHYMICA. Continens Philosophicam propriam laborum experientiam confirmatam descriptionem et usum Remediorum Chymicorum Selectissimorum e Lumine Gratiae et Naturae desumptorum. In fine libri additus est Auctoris ejusdem Tractatus Novus De Signaturis Rerum Internis. Frankfurt: Gottfried Tampach,  (1609), 12+448+8pp, renowned D.O.M.A. engraved title page by Aegidius Sadeler. Rare undated reissue of the first edition two years previous, contemporary limp vellum, ms title on spine, browned as usual, otherwise a very good copy, no defects, collates complete but lacks the folding plate, (Duveen 150, Ferguson I, 185, not in the Young Collection, not in the Ferguson catalogue, Gilly 14a). Klossowski de Rolla reproduces and explains the engraved title on p.157 of The Golden Game. According to Ferguson some copies were issued without the plate. Croll famously defends alchemy and the doctrine of signatures. He gives details on many alchemical processes, including ones he tested himself. According to Ferguson, "The "Basilica chymica" became the standard scientific work of iatrochemistry. In sharp contrast with Paracelsus' vagueness, Crollius describes in detail the individual preparations, their composition, and their application. This explains why the book became such a great success, running to many editions and occasionning many commentaries." $4,400.00
