"Miracles of the Dead" is one of the four works by German lawyer Heinrich Kornmann (ca. 1580-1620) published between 1610 and 1614 on magic and marvels. "Magical bits from the Miracles of the Dead are that the owl is a fatal omen and the peacock a presage of disease, that suffumigation with the tooth of a dead man expels witchcraft and impotency, that the herb betony protects cemeteries, and that if a mother kisses her dead child, the other children will soon die too. Astrology enters in the question why thousands of persons with different horoscopes die on the same day in the same battle, and divination in the question what dreams about the dead signifiy, the discussion of presages of death, and the prophecies of those about to die. The problem is argued whether the witch of Endor really resuscitated Samuel. Joan of Arc’s heart was unburned at the stake. Cases are listed of the teeth of corpses growing and a dead woman impregnated. A corpse is heavier than the living body because it is without the levitation of the vital spirits and heat. The size and weight of resurrected bodies is discussed, how men who have been eaten and the cannibals who ate them can both be resurrected in the body, whether abortions will rise again, and whether monsters will be resurrected. The corpse bleeding before the murderer is treated, and if inextinguishable and ever-burning sepulchral lamps are not, they are about the only thing connected with funerals and burials which is omitted" -- Thorndike. Caillet 5827 ("Curieux et recherché"). Thorndike VII, pp. 278-80. Seller Inventory # 406

About this Item: Darmstadt Porssius, 1611. (16,5 x 10 cm). 334 S. Pergamentband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - "The work of 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. According to the tradition of the Magi, there are three kinds of spiritual beings: supercelestial who are very close to God, celestial intelligences for the spheres and stars, and demons for each of the four elements. There are also fiery men and aerial men, and four animals who feed on a single element: the mole on earth, the 'alec' on water, the chameleon on air, and the salamander nourished on fire. 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). - Der aus Kirchhain in Hessen stammende Kornmann (1579-1627), ein Jurist und Polyhistoriker, verhalf durch sein Werk "Mons Veneris" dem Brocken als Hexenberg zu großer Popularität. - Der Benzing unbekannte Drucker J. J. Porssius in Darmstadt müsste nach Benzings Datierung der zweite Drucker der Stadt sein. - Exlibris. Stellenweise etwas gebräunt. Insgesamt schönes und wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. - VD 17 23:254716L; Thorndike VII, 280 (ausführlich); Caillet 5831; Jöcher II, 2148; Rosenthal BMP 8704. Seller Inventory # 104426-01
