About this Item

Mynsicht’s esoteric ‘Thesaurus’ is one of the most reprinted works of chemical pharmacy. [24], 490, [68]; [6], 58, [2]; [6], 37, [2] pages. 8vo (160 x 100mm). Contemporary vellum boards; (some foxing, minor worming in lower corners). Extensive early annotations in Italian scattered throughout, some trimmed or faded, but adding to the overall feeling of use and appreciation. Mynsicht, of Magdeburg, was a Rosicrucian alchemist and esotericist. His remedies were widely used by European pharmacists from the 18th-century. Mynsicht is frequently cited as part of a "new science" in pharmacy as he introduced the idea of free medical practice. Mynsicht, also publishing under the name Henricus Madathanus, was best known for an allegorical text, Aureum saeculum redivivum, which communicated his alchemical philosophy in symbolic language. Like many of his contemporary alchemists, Mynsicht also made contributions to scientific chemistry and especially Paracelsianism, the medical movement based on the esoteric theories and therapies of Paracelsus. This Mysnicht’s thesaurus, first published in 1631, contains information on pharmaceutical remedies in this tradition with and appendix on the philosopher’s stone. This edition was supplemented with the additions of Carlo Musitano and Andrea Battimelli. A rare and important thesaurus of alchemy and pharmacy. Bookseller Inventory # LD8463
