1659. 96; 76, [4]; [16], 96; 44 pp.Ad 1: First edition of the Latin translation of Glauber's Trost der Seefahrenten, which Janssonius published in the same year. A Dutch translation appeared in 1659 under the title Der zee-luyden gesontheydts-welvaren.Rewarding all the seamen for their essential contribution to Holland's prosperity, this small work is very interesting for Glauber's advice for preventing hunger, thirst and scurvy on ships, and for improving the conditions of the seafarer. He is able, he says, to ameliorate the supply of drinking water on board and to bake more tenable bread.Ad 2: First edition of the Latin translation of Glauber's German first edition, which was published a year earlier with the same title. It is a further promotion of his “invention”, a universal medicine: drinkable gold.Ad 3 & 4: Two works on the nature of salt and its cycle in the universe, not unlike the circulation of the blood. The last part discusses his “Sal mirabile Glauberi”, the sodium sulphate he also uses to produce his drinkable gold. In the additional book (“Tractatus de signatura salium”), Glauber expands on the occult etymology and secrets hidden in the names of the various substances.Binding slightly worn, spine a little damaged, but still in good condition.l Ad 1: Krivatsy 4814; Stcn (6 copies); cf. Gugel 10 (no translations mentioned). Ad 2: Krivatsy 4809; Stcn (4 copies); cf. Gugel 9 (not mentioning this Latin translation) & 2 (De auri tinctura.).
