        La première partie de l'oevre minerale, ou est enseignée la separation de l'or des pierres à feu, sable, argile, & autres fossiles, par l'ésprit de sel, ce qui ne se peu faire par autre voye...

      Chez Jean d' Houry, 1659. (11 x 18) Piena pelle coeva con dorso a 5 nervi e fregi in oro e tit., abilmente restaurato. Sei opere ciascuna con proprio frontespizio, 5 delle quali in PRIMA EDIZIONE. (20), 7-64 pp; 48 pp.; 111 pp.; 22, (2) pp. bianche; 61, (3) pp., 64 pp. Glauber (1604-1670) fu un vero precursore della chimica moderna. Quantunque non avesse avuto un'educazione formale, egli viaggiò intensamente incontrando filosofi, alchimisti e farmacisti, in Germania, Austria e Paesi Bassi, dove finalmente si stabilì, ad Amsterdam. Qui, in un periodo di circa 40 anni, scrisse oltre trenta opere, che rappresentano solo in piccola parte, le sue scoperte e le sue sperimentazioni. Glauber fu influenzato dalla tradizione metallurgica, molto più di altri suoi contemporanei, ma fu l'alchimia a determinare i suoi obiettivi e la sua personale percezione di questo lavoro. Assiduo sperimentatore ed inventore di successo, gli viene attribuita l'invenzione di apparecchiature d'avanguardia, e una moderna concezione dell'importanza degli acidi minerali come reagenti chimici. In queste opere egli si occupa della trasformazione "universale" e "particolare, la prima effettuata per mezzo della pietra filosofale, la seconda con l'uso dei sali, nella quale era ritenuto un maestro. Ferguson I-323/327/328; Dorbon 1878; Krivatsy 4810; Wellcome III-123-125.

Illustrés et augmentés de plusieurs commentaires et manuscrits, tant Lettres, Instructions, Traittez, qu'autres pieces secrettes et originales servants à donner la vérité de l'Histoire des règnes de François II, Charles IX et Henri III, et de la régence et du gouvernement de Catherine de Médicis. Avec les éloges des rois, reines, princes et autres personnages illustres de l'une et l'autre religion sous ces trois règnes, et l'histoire généalogique de la maison de Castelnau, par J. Le Laboureur.

Première édition commentée avec des pièces justificatives par Jean Le Laboureur enrichie des généalogies de la Maison Castelnau que ne contenait pas l'édition originale de 1621 publiée par Jacques de Castelnau, fils de Michel. Portraits hors texte de Jacques et Michel de Castelnau (ce dernier répété), vignette de titre gravée et plus de 300 blasons gravés en taille-douce dans le texte : au tome I, Histoire généalogique de la Maison de Castelnau, au tome II Généalogies de plusieurs maisons alliées à celle de Castelnau. Après avoir pris part aux négociations de 1559, Michel de Catselnau (1520-1592) fut envoyé en Ecosse, en Allemagne et en Angleterre où il fut ambassadeur de 1575 à 1585 ; il participa aux événements survenus entre 1559 et 1570 ceux-là mêmes qu'il consigna dans ses mémoires pour l'instruction de son fils, sans idée de publication. « Le rôle joué par l'auteur, ses relations avec les principaux personnages, enfin sa réelle modération donnent à ses jugements une certaine force. » (Hauser). Exemplaire réglé à grandes marges, aux armes du comte Charles-Henri d'Hoym, ambassadeur en France d'Auguste II, électeur de Saxe et roi de Pologne, et aux fers de la maison Rohan-Chabot (macle et chabot couronnés en écoinçons). La réunion de ces deux provenances sur une même reliure est inconnue à Olivier-Hermal-Roton. « Le comte d'Hoym fut l'un des bibliophiles les plus célèbres, qui forma avec passion de 1717 à 1735, une collection riche et surtout en lettres et en histoire. Il faisait relier ses volumes par Boyet en veau fauve ou en maroquin, avec ses armes sur les plats et l'aigle de Pologne au dos ».

        North America antique map - Sanson.

      ONE OF THE EARLIEST MAPS TO DEPICT ALL 5 GREAT LAKES - Amerique SeptentrionaleAll of North America, with California depicted as an island. Engraved by Pierre mariette, published by Nicolas Sanson in 1659. First map to name Lakes Superior and Ontario. Burden calls this a "landmark map of North America. It was drawn, with his usual care, using the sinusoidal projection which is sometimes known by the name Sanson-Flamstead.It is, perhaps, most important for being the first printed map to delineate the five Great Lakes in a recognizable form... To the west, S Fe, Navajo, Apache, Taosij and others all appear for the first time. The first is incorrectly placed on the west bank of the Rio Grande, here again flowing to the south-west. These were the first advances in the geography of this region for some time. The information was derived from the travels of Father Alonso de Benavides in the late 1620's...California as an island is of the Briggs type with some important alterations; Sanson introduces four placenames from the de Laet map of 1630, C. de Fortune, C. de Pinos, C. de S.Martin and C. de Galera..." There were three states of the map, of which this is the third. The first state, of which only two examples were known, had no land to the north-west of California; the second state, also quite uncommon, added coastline at that point, and eliminated a few placenames north of California; the third state is the same as the second, except that Lake Ontario has been shaded to match the other Great Lakes. Size: 39,8 x 57 cm. Literature: Philip Burden, The Mapping of North America (1996), nr. 294 Price: ?3.350,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

Goedeke III, 29, 28; VD17 14:084320E - Georg Greflinger (Pseud. Celadon), 1620 in Neunburg vorm Wald - 1677 in Hamburg, gilt als erster deutschsprachiger Zeitungsredakteur im heutigen Sinne, der für den Nordischen Mercurius, ein seinerzeit modernes Publikationskonzept entwickelte. Er besuchte das evangelische Gymnasium in Regensburg, liße sich 1646 in der Hansestadt als Schriftsteller nieder. Schon 1654 wurde er von seinem Freund Johann Rist zum poeta laureatus gekrönt und in den Elbschwanenorden aufgenommen. Als Dichternamen gebraucht er Seladon und Celadon. In Hamburg war Greflinger sowohl als Übersetzer wie auch als Gelegenheitsdichter ungemein produktiv. Literarhistorischen Ruf erlangte seine Übersetzung des Cid von Pierre Corneille (die erste in Deutschland). In den Jahren 1663/65 begann Greflinger mit der Herausgabe der Zeitung Norddeutscher Mercurius, die von seinen Söhnen bis 1730 fortgeführt wurde. Hier ordnete er die Nachrichten schon nach thematischen Rubriken, behandelte relevante Themen ausführlicher und baute sogar lokale Nachrichten mit ein. Er verwendete verschiedene feuilletonistische Elemente. Als erster Zeitungsroman erschien Die Entdeckung der Insel Pines, welcher zwar utopisch war, jedoch zu der Zeit von den Lesern als wahrer Bericht verstanden wurde. Greflinger zählt zu den frühesten deutschen Journalisten. Das heute übliche Ressort-System geht im Wesentlichen auf ihn zurück. (Siehe auch: ADB IX, 625)

        Astrolabium, Das ist: Gründliche Beschreibung und Unterricht... De usu Astrolabii, Posterior Pars, Das ist: Gründliche Beschreibung und Unterricht ...

      Nuremberg, Germany: Christoff Gerhard for Paul Fürst No date but about 1659-1660. Text in German. Two parts in one: 1) Astrolabium, Das ist: Gründliche Beschreibung und Unterricht, wie solches herrliche und hochnützliche Astronomische Instrument, auff allerley Polus Höh, so wol auch nach eines jeden selbst gefälligen Gröss auffgerissen, und verfertigt werden soll. Darnach wei dasselbe vielfältig zu gebrauchen: Mit Kupferstücken verfertiget; 2) De usu Astrolabii, Posterior Pars... Full vellum binding, possibly contemporary but likely somewhat later. Vellum age-faded and with occasional pinpoint splotches. Remnants of label to spine, with handwritten title and author. Roman numeral IV appears at spine tail. Moderate chipping at spine head and tail. Front corners moderately bumped and abraded. Hinges cracked and binding threatening to detach from text block. 7 x 5.75 inches (18 x 14.5 cm.) On rag content, laid paper. With 136 and 64 numbered pages, additional engraved title-page by P. Troschel, woodcut initials and tailpieces, and 21 engraved plates in first part, as called for. All 21 plates remarkably clean, apart from light age-toning. Note that this copy lacks the 15 large folding engraved plates that appeared in the second part of some issues. The signatures comprising the text block appear soundly bound together, except that the front title pages are loosening and the signature comprising pp. 27-30 is loosening. A few names and dates in neat ink hand to front pastedown and opposite FEP. Age toning at the very edge of all pages. Age darkening to the preliminaries, especially the last several pages. Of uncertain provenance but illustrated title page and final text page with inscription, "Coll. Sue. Jesse Bamberg" [?]. Else a rather clean copy.

Watson Antiquarian Books for the following: "Illustrated treatise on the construction and use of astrolabes. The two parts were first published separately in Nuremberg in 1613. There appear to be numerous variant editions. This one conforms to that of Yale and Brown, which they date to the 1640s, but other authorities give 1659 and 1660 as the dates of publication. The plates in the first part are printed from the same coppers used in the 1613 edition. The second part of the 1613 edition was unillustrated. Franz Ritter was an astronomer and innovative cartographer, famous for his 'sundial' world map. Ritter specialized in the design and manufacture of astrolabes, sundials, and other astronomical, horological and cartographical instruments.". Vellum. Good Plus. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

        North America antique map - Sanson.

      ONE OF THE EARLIEST MAPS TO DEPICT ALL 5 GREAT LAKES - Amerique SeptentrionaleAll of North America, with California depicted as an island. Engraved by Pierre mariette, published by Nicolas Sanson in 1659. First map to name Lakes Superior and Ontario. Burden calls this a "landmark map of North America. It was drawn, with his usual care, using the sinusoidal projection which is sometimes known by the name Sanson-Flamstead.It is, perhaps, most important for being the first printed map to delineate the five Great Lakes in a recognizable form... To the west, S Fe, Navajo, Apache, Taosij and others all appear for the first time. The first is incorrectly placed on the west bank of the Rio Grande, here again flowing to the south-west. These were the first advances in the geography of this region for some time. The information was derived from the travels of Father Alonso de Benavides in the late 1620's...California as an island is of the Briggs type with some important alterations; Sanson introduces four placenames from the de Laet map of 1630, C. de Fortune, C. de Pinos, C. de S.Martin and C. de Galera..." There were three states of the map, of which this is the third. The first state, of which only two examples were known, had no land to the north-west of California; the second state, also quite uncommon, added coastline at that point, and eliminated a few placenames north of California; the third state is the same as the second, except that Lake Ontario has been shaded to match the other Great Lakes. Size: 39,8 x 57 cm. Literature: Philip Burden, The Mapping of North America (1996), nr. 294 Price: ?3.350,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

      A Rouen, chez François Vaultier, 1659. - in-8. 3ff. 506pp. Plein vélin souple du temps. Initialement paru en 1614, cet ouvrage réédité à plusieurs reprises à Rouen dans le courant du 17e siècle, constitue un jalon important dans l'histoire de la langue espagnole. "En la historiografía lingüística Ambrosio de Salazar es uno de los tratadistas menos conocidos e incluso peor tratados por la crítica; sin embargo, su obra Espexo General de Gramática., publicada en Rouen, 1615, ha sido sin duda la que más ha trascendido no tanto por su postura y planteamientos gramaticales sino por tratarse de un manual de enseñanza y aprendizaje de nuestra lengua a extranjeros, concretamente a franceses ( ). Los investigadores de la Historia de la Lingüística no han prestado atención a ciertos principios fundamentales que Ambrosio de Salazar va incluyendo a lo largo de los siete días de la semana que servirán de marco para su exposición, a modo de diálogo, mezclados con historias, anécdotas. de nuestra lengua ( ). Nos interesa, sobre todo, dar a conocer la transcendencia de la teoría de Ambrosio de Salazar, al contrastar sus reflexiones con las emitidas por otros tratadistas contemporáneos, consecuentemente podremos valorar su aportación en el ámbito de la historia de la lingüística; habida cuenta que algunos de estos conceptos se han olvidado durante el desarrollo histórico de nuestra disciplina para resurgir en la actualidad configurándose como pilares sobre los que se asientan varios de los fundamentos de la lingüística general contemporánea" (Hernández et López). Auteur de plusieurs ouvrages en espagnol imprimés en France, Ambrosio de Salazar, historien, linguiste et grammairien originaire de Murcia, résidait à Rouen où il enseignait l'espagnol. Il fut notamment interprète à la Cour de Louis XIII et plusieurs études lui ont été consacrées depuis le début du 20e siècle, en particulier une biographie par Morel Fatio. La présente édition fut peut-être donnée en écho au Traité des Pyrénées signé la même année. Portrait de Louis XIV dans un médaillon gravé sur bois au verso du titre.

Gemeinsam mit Torquato Tasso, nach dessen "Aminta" er seinen "treuen Hirten" bildete, schuf Guarini am gegen Ende der italienischen Renaissance ein neues literarisches Genre, das pastorale Drama und inspirierte so nicht nur den Schäferroman, sondern auch die Musikszene der späten Renaissance und des frühen Barock, da viele seiner Texte von Komponisten zu Madrigalen verarbeitet wurden.

        Mosaicall Philosophy

      1659. First Edition . FLUDD, Robert. Mosaicall Philosophy Grounded upon the Essentiall Truth or Eternal Sapience. Written first in Latin, and afterwards thus rendered into English. London: Printed for Humphrey Moseley, 1659. Small folio, contemporary full blind-ruled brown sheep, raised bands. Housed in custom half morocco clamshell box. $24,000.First edition in English of Fludd’s “grand synthesis of knowledge,” based on intricate, interwoven theories of mysticism, natural magic, Neoplatonism, alchemy, hermeticism and Paracelsianism, featuring numerous woodcut engravings.A controversial Rosicrucian and physician, Robert Fludd (1574-1637) first encountered occult circles during his time at St. John’s College, Oxford. “The chief English representative of that school of medical mystics which laid claim to the possession of the key to universal science” (DNB), Fludd traveled extensively through Europe after graduation, a period in which it “seems likely that he was exposed to hermeticism and Paracelsianism,” and on returning to London, began his life’s work amidst almost immediate and continuing controversy (ODNB). “Remembered for his connection with the fraternity of the rosy cross… [and] his position that all true natural science is rooted in revelation” (DNB), Fludd preceded his Mosaicall Philosophy with only one other work in English, Doctor Fudd’s answer unto M. Foster (1631). It was there that Fludd defended his belief in the efficacy of a weapon-salve based on the Paracelsian doctrine of curing a wound by anointing it with the weapon that caused it—in this instance with a mixture of the patient’s blood, moss grown on a human skull, and flesh from the body of a hanged man. In Mosaicall Philosophy, Fludd offers an “explicit, detailed and highly organized Neoplatonist—Cabalist—alchemical interpretation of the universe… Fludd was a devoutly Christian Neoplatonist, or as he would call himself, a Mosaicall Philosopher, since he begins with what he believes to be infallible principles delivered from God directly to Moses and his followers. Since Fludd made some unique contributions to his grand synthesis of knowledge over and above what was formulated originally by the Renaissance Florentine Neoplatonists, he felt justified in calling his philosophy ‘Fluddean’ as well as Mosaicall… This concept of using natural magic to investigate the mysteries of the unified, sympathetic harmony of the universe precisely described Fludd’s approach to exploring natural phenomena.” Fludd chronicles a number of experiments, including the fascinating Calendar- (or Weather-) Glass and those dealing with magnetism. The Weather-Glass, a combination of barometer/thermometer, was used to show the effects upon the natural world of the dichotomies of light/dark or heat/cold. Fludd believed that the interplay of these opposites animated the universe and that the Weather-Glass demonstrated this. The other major experimental evidence Fludd offers herein is said to “confirm the loving Micro-cosmicall Attraction, or sympathetical Coition, and anti-patheticall Expulsion or hatred, by the magnetick, and expulsive property of the Macrocosmicall Loadstone.” Just as the Weather-Glass could be considered a miniature universe, the mineral lodestone could be said to demonstrate its principles of attraction and repulsion on a macrocosmic scale, while also demonstrating “how these properties work in the animal kingdom, and can thus be used for medical cures” (Huffman, 104-5, 118, 124).

        Rélation Véritable de ce qui s'est Passé au Royaume de Sophie, depuis les Troubles excitez par la Rhetorique et l'Eloquence. Avec un Discours sur la Nouvelle Allegorique.

      Paris: Charles de Sercy, 1659. Duodecimo, contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt between raised bands. Very scarce: first edition of this description and history of an imagined kingdom, an allegorical satire on French court and society.Sorel (1597-1674) novelist and historian, wrote a vast array of works, many issued anonymously or pseudonymously: he 'professa toute sa vie pour les lettres une ardeur indefatigable' (NBG). This tremendous output has made a complete bibliography of his works a difficult undertaking, but even a brief overview shows his astonishing diversity: satires, histories, fables, etc. The Rélation Véritable is a satire on French mores, followed by Sorel's Discours sur la Nouvelle Allégorique, an approving comparison of Sorel's invented kingdom of Sophie and Antoine Furetière's earlier Nouvelle Allégorique, ou Histoire des derniers troubles arrivez au royaume de l'eloquence. Slightly browned but a very good copy.

        Geometriae Speciose Elementa.

      Bologna: Giovanni Battista Ferroni, 1659. First edition, and a fine copy from the library of Pietro Riccardi, of this very rare and highly original work in which Mengoli "set up the basic rules of the calculus thirty years before Newton and Leibniz. Both of these were influenced by his contribution, in the case of Leibniz the influence was direct as he read Mengoli's work, while in the case of Newton he knew of it indirectly through studying Wallis" (MacTutor History of Mathematics). Mengoli develops here a new method of quadratures, i.e., finding the areas of geometrical figures, based on François Viète's symbolic, or 'specious' algebra, and on his own new theory of 'quasi proportions,' the first true theory of limits. Like the Geometria indivisibilibus (1635) of Mengoli's master Bonaventura Cavalieri, the Geometriae is an important precursor of the integral calculus. Cavalieri's method of indivisibles, which was entirely geometrical, had been much criticized by his contemporaries for having uncertain foundations, and Mengoli wrote the Geometriae in part as a defense of Cavalieri. Mengoli's 'specious geometry' is, however, an entirely new method with a largely algebraic basis. This is an extremely rare book: OCLC records just one copy in the US (New York Public Library), and we have located only one copy in auction records. In the first decades of the seventeenth century mathematicians began to assimilate the symbolic algebra introduced by Viète in his great work In Artem Analyticem Isagoge (1591). The first important consequence was Descartes' La Géométrie (1637), which used Viète's specious algebra to solve geometrical problems (essentially those that reduce to the determination of the points of intersection of two curves). Mengoli's work applies specious algebra to the summation of power series and a different class of geometrical problems, the quadrature of curves. "In his work Geometriae Speciosae Elementa, algebra and geometry are used in complementary ways in the investigation of quadrature problems. At the beginning of this work he claimed that his geometry was a combination of those of Cavalieri and Archimedes obtained using the tools that Viete's 'specious algebra' offered him ... His principal aim was to square the circle, a goal he achieved by means of his new method in a later work, Circolo" (Massa Esteve, p. 84). "Mengoli believed that the basis of Cavalieri's method of indivisibles was not sufficiently sound. He wanted to provide a solid foundation for the application of this method to square the given figures, new figures, and, especially, the circle ... First, using his own system of coordinates, he expressed geometric figures by algebraic expressions. Second, to classify these algebraic expressions he placed them in a triangular table. Third, he used these algebraic expressions as part of a method for the geometrical construction of coordinates of these figures, and finally, he used triangular tables and quasi proportions to find new quadratures and to produce general demonstrations of quadrature results" (ibid., p. 94). The Geometriae opens with a long introduction, the Lectio elementario, which provides an overview of the six chapters, or Elementa. The first two chapters contain the calculations of numerous summations of powers and products of powers, and the proofs of several identities. These calculations are based on three triangular tables. "Mengoli's originality stems not from the definitions of these tables but from his treatment of them. On the one hand he uses these tables and Viète's algebra to create other tables with letters expressing additions of powers and products of powers; on the other he employs the relations between these summations and the combinatory numbers of the arithmetic triangle to prove one of the most important results of his book, namely the sum of the pth powers of the first t - 1 integers" (Massa, pp. 261-2). This formula had been stated earlier by Fermat and Pascal, but without proof. The third Elementum introduces Mengoli's theory of 'quasi proportions.' In this chapter, "Mengoli set out a logical arrangement of the concepts of limit and definite integral that anticipated the work of nineteenth-century mathematicians. In establishing a rigorous theory of limits, he considered a variable quantity as a ratio of magnitudes and hence needed to consider only positive limits. He then made the following definitions: a variable quantity that can be greater than any assignable number is called 'quasi-infinite'; a variable quantity that can be smaller than any positive number is 'quasi-nil'; and a variable quantity that can be both smaller than any number larger than a given positive number a and greater than any number smaller than a is 'quasi-a.' "Using these precise concepts of the infinite, the infinitesimal, and the limit, and working from simple inequalities valid between numerical ratios, he demonstrated ... the properties of the limit of the sum and the product, and showed that the properties of proportions are conserved also at the limit. The proofs obtain when such limits are neither 0 nor &infinity;; for this case Mengoli set out the properties of the infinitesimal calculus and the calculus of infinites some thirty years before Newton published them in his 'Principia'." (DSB). In the fourth and fifth Elementa, Mengoli developed "a rigorous basis for the logarithm on the model of the Eudoxian definitions of equality and inequality for reals" (Whiteside, pp. 192-3). He "set out a purely arithmetic theory of logarithms; having given a definition of the logarithmic ratio similar to Euclid's definition of ratio between magnitudes; he then extended Euclid's book V to encompass his own logarithmic ratio. Mengoli also did significant work in logarithmic series (thirteen years before N. Mercator published his 'Logarithmotechnia')" (DSB). The series expansion for the logarithm was apparently included at the last minute, as it appears in the introduction (appendix: pp. 73-75). "Finally, the sixth Elementum, De innumerabilibus quadraturis, involves calculating the quadratures of curves that correspond to functions represented by y = xs(1 - x)p-s [where p and s are non-negative integers]. Mengoli does this by using the theory of quasi proportions explained in the Elementum tertium" (Massa, p. 260). "The triangular table of quadratures that Mengoli constructed could be extended indefinitely. He knew the value of these quadratures and looked for a rule that allowed him to associate any geometric figure to an algebraic expression. Putting these expressions in the table with the appropriate coefficients, the quadratures of the new curves were given. He classified the curves that determine them into three types and studied the properties of each group, again using the theory of quasi proportions" (Massa Esteve, p. 110). "In spite of these innovations, Mengoli was scarcely understood. In a letter to Collins, Isaac Barrow said that Mengoli's style was harder than Arabic, and that if Mengoli had found something new, he did not have the time to investigate it. Even though his reputation was strong during his lifetime, it seems that Mengoli died isolated and ignored. The reasons for this are not clear. It is possible that his complex and confusing writing style and the complicated nature of his notation made his works too hard to read; perhaps, for this reason, he had no followers. It is equally possible that his introduction of algebra into geometry failed to accord with the prevailing mathematical practice of the 17th century" (Massa, p. 278). Riccardi I (2), 150 (this copy).

Goedeke III, 29, 28; VD17 14:084320E - Georg Greflinger (Pseud. Celadon), 1620 in Neunburg vorm Wald - 1677 in Hamburg, gilt als erster deutschsprachiger Zeitungsredakteur im heutigen Sinne, der für den Nordischen Mercurius, ein seinerzeit modernes Publikationskonzept entwickelte. Er besuchte das evangelische Gymnasium in Regensburg, liße sich 1646 in der Hansestadt als Schriftsteller nieder. Schon 1654 wurde er von seinem Freund Johann Rist zum poeta laureatus gekrönt und in den Elbschwanenorden aufgenommen. Als Dichternamen gebraucht er Seladon und Celadon. In Hamburg war Greflinger sowohl als Übersetzer wie auch als Gelegenheitsdichter ungemein produktiv. Literarhistorischen Ruf erlangte seine Übersetzung des Cid von Pierre Corneille (die erste in Deutschland). In den Jahren 1663/65 begann Greflinger mit der Herausgabe der Zeitung Norddeutscher Mercurius, die von seinen Söhnen bis 1730 fortgeführt wurde. Hier ordnete er die Nachrichten schon nach thematischen Rubriken, behandelte relevante Themen ausführlicher und baute sogar lokale Nachrichten mit ein. Er verwendete verschiedene feuilletonistische Elemente. Als erster Zeitungsroman erschien Die Entdeckung der Insel Pines, welcher zwar utopisch war, jedoch zu der Zeit von den Lesern als wahrer Bericht verstanden wurde. Greflinger zählt zu den frühesten deutschen Journalisten. Das heute übliche Ressort-System geht im Wesentlichen auf ihn zurück.
