Woodcut port. of Paracelsus on verso of title & two woodcuts in the text. 36 unnumbered leaves. 4to, cont. blind-stamped pigskin over boards (recased with new endpapers, final leaves with some mostly marginal dampstaining). Munich: A. Berg, 1570. First edition of these four tracts by Paracelsus which were also added to the new edition of his Archidoxa, published later in the same year. Of particular interest is the first tract which deals with the magnet and its use in the treatment of different diseases; the second tract, on occult philosophy (including a chapter on imagination and one on possessed people) is of interest for medical psychology; the third one deals with the administration of medicines, and the last one with snakes and other poisonous animals. Edited by Johann Albert von Wimpenaeus (fl. 1568-70). Good copy. Rare. Sudhoff 128.
