About this Item: sumptibus Clementis Schleichij & Consortum, typis Caspari Rötelij, Frankfurt, 1636. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo (159 x 99 mm). [32], 528, [16] pp., including index at end. Large printer's woodcut device to title-page. Signatures: (cross)-2(cross)8 A-Z8 Aa-Ll8. Contemporary full vellum with yapp edges. Internally little browned only, a few pencil markings, final 4 leaves with single wormtrack affecting a few words of index. Otherwise a fine and unstained copy. ---- VD17 39:113722S; Wellcome I, 5928. - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (without errata), of exceptional rarity (only one copy recorded at auction in the past 50 years). The physician and scholar Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) united various atomistic theories in the early 17th century and advocated the spread of atomism. Jungius further developed the ideas he published. In his Hypomnemata physicae (Notes on Physics), Sennert summarized his theories, emphasizing the imperceptibility of the 'minima', but referring to observations that suggest their existence. When water evaporates, its particles do not disintegrate, but become undetectably small. His efforts to unite corpuscular theories with the Aristotelian theory of matter brought him recognition in the course of his life, but was later criticized. The assumption that the original atoms are linked to hardly divisible prima mixta influenced the teachings of Robert Boyle (1627-91) and Joachim Jungius (1587-1657) "(see NDB XXIV, 262 f.). Some issues include two leaves of errata which are not present in our copy (as absent from the Wellcome and VD17 copies). Visit our website for additional images and information.
