Bericht vom Bergwerck, wie man dieselben - LÖHNEYSEN, Georg Engelhard von [LÖH - 1660. [1279002]
[no printer]: [No place], 1660. 3rd Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (318 x 195 mm). [22], 343 (i.e. 363) [1] pp. Several mispaginations. Engraved title-page and 16 folding engraved plates bound at end. 18th-century half vellum over marbled boards (paper over boards heavily chipped at outer edges, extremities rubbed, corners scuffed). Text somewhat browned throughout, a few faint dampstains and occasional spotting. The engraved plates only little browned or spotted. The oversized letterpress tables on leaves pp3v to pp5r cropped at bottom affecting one line. Still a very good copy in an untouched binding. ----Koch 62; Darmstaedter, Probirbüchlein, 99; Libri rari 174; Ferchl 320; Lipperheide Pd 5; Partington II, 107. SECOND EDITION. Löhneyss gives the first description of the extraction of zinc at Rammelsberg" (Partington II, 108). Most copies of the first edition (1617) were lost when the printer's shop was destroyed during the Thirty Years War. The most notable sections of this work, which in its technical parts was on the whole a shameless plagiarism from Agricola and Ercker, are the contributions on economic aspects of mining. The work was originally illustrated with woodcuts by Moses Thym which were for this edition re-engraved in copper by J. Wichmann who executed them mirror inverted from the originals. Zweite Ausgabe des prächtig ausgestatteten Werkes, erstmals 1617 in Löhneysen's Privatdruckerei in Remlingen und Zellerfeld gedruckt (die meisten Exemplare wurden mit der Druckerei im Dreissigährigen Krieg zerstört). Der besondere Wert des "Berichts", dessen technische Ausführungen meist schamlos aus Agricola und Ercker abgeschrieben sind, liegt in den wirtschaftlichen Abschnitten: "Merkantilistischkameralistische Gedanken halten hier ihren Einzug in das bergtechnische Schrifttum" (Koch). Die Erstausgabe war mit Holzschnitten von Moses Thym illustriert. Diese wurden fur die vorliegende Ausgabe von J. Wichman seitenverkehrt kopiert und in Kupfer gestochen. [1660]. Very Good....
