1653. [1], [1 blank], 105, [5 blank]; [20], 113, [1]; 62 pp.Second (volume 1) and fourth (volume 2) edition of a classic alchemical work on a miraculous remedy: a panacea for all diseases, infirmities and other ailments that Glauber calls his “Alkahest”. Some of Glauber's contemporaries such as Sir Robert Moray of the Royal Society, had a high regard for his “Alkahest”. Gugel lists the first edition with the imprint: Frankfurt am Main, Thomas Mathias Gutze, 1653, which is Vd17 12: Very fine condition H (1 copy, with a link to a scan), 1: Very fine condition B (1 copy, perhaps the same edition) or 23: Very fine condition E (3 copies, perhaps the same edition), but doesn't mention the present edition, which is a wholly new setting. Janssonius published a Latin translation of volume 1 in the same year 1653 with imprint: “impressum” Amsterdam “apud” Johannes Janssonius, and with what appears to be the same arabesque tailpiece on the title-page, and volume 2 has the imprint Amsterdam, “bey” Johannes Janssonius. Janssonius appears to have published all four early editions of the second volume (1657-1660).Ad 1 with some annotations, underlining and marks in the margins in pencil. Ad 1 somewhat soiled and ad 2 somewhat browned, both otherwise in good condition.l Ad 1: Stcn (6 & 4 copies); Vd17 14: Very fine condition H (7 copies) & 23: Very fine condition B (4 copies); not in Gugel. Ad 2: Ferguson I, 325; Vd17 23: Very fine condition Y (2 copies); not in Gugel."
