(Kornmann, Heinrich)
Templum naturae historicum Henrici Kornmanni ex Kirchaina Chattorum in quo de natura et miraculis quatuor elementorum ignis, aeris, aquae, terrae, ita disseritur ut nihil de rerum principiis ... de aere ... de aqua ... de terra ... intactum praeteritum fiet.
334 S., 1 w. Bl. Prgt. d. Zt. Bräuning-Oktavio, Buchdruck in Darmstadt I, 15; Caillet 5831: "Curieux et recherché"; Graesse IV, 45; Rosenthal 8704; Thorndike VII, 280; vgl. Ferchl 283 (Ausgabe 1666). Nicht im VD 17. - Seltene erste Ausgabe. - "The work on the miracles of the four elements has the alternative title, Historical Temple of Nature, and is largely drawn from antiquated authors. Not only are the elements still four, but comets are still exhalations in the supreme region of air. Tides, however, are attributed to the moon... Besides miracles of each element, there are alphabetical treatments of birds, quadrupeds, mountains, bodies of water, forests, gardens, trees, herbs, flowers, fruits, cities, temples, towers, bridges, and so on, passing from the realm of nature to that of art" (Thorndike). - Leicht gebräunt. Mit dem gest. Wappen-Exlibris von Schloss Nordkirchen.
