About this Item: Christiani Kirchneri - Joh. Gabr. Güttneri, Lipsiae, 1670. In-4° (200x150mm), pp. (18), 112, (8) di indice, legatura coeva p. pergamena rigida con titolo e fregio manoscritti in antico al dorso. Vignetta xilografica con teschio al frontespizio. Testatine, capilettera e finaletti ornati o istoriati in xilografia. Dedicatorie, versi latini preliminari di vari autori a lode dell'autore ed errata in principio. Antiche note di possesso. Diffuse bruniture, tipiche dei libri tedeschi del secolo barocco ma buon esemplare. Prima edizione questo raro e significativo trattato fisico-medico sui fenomeni che si accompagnano alla morte e al processo di decomposizione, ricco di dissertazioni in merito: De capillorum augmento, De cadaveribus sonantibus, De faciei mutatione in cadaveribus, Dentium singularia, De cordis augmento et in igne duratione, De abdominis crepatura, De penis in cadavere erectione, De maculis cadaverium, De cadaverum contagio, etc. L'opera è uno dei primissimi testi organicamente dedicati alla medicina legale ed è uno tra i testi fondanti della moderna tanatologia e pare, a detta di taluni studiosi, che avesse influenzato perfino Mary Shelley per la stesura di Frankenstein (anche se non sempre le sue osservazioni erano suffragate dal dovuto rigore scientifico); la presente edizione originale comprende la sola prima parte, poi ampliata notevolmente nelle successive ristampe. L'auteur ne laisse échapper aucune occasion de déclamer contre l'Eglise Romaine, en lui attribuant toutes les superstitions et croyances populaires relatives aux reliques vraies ou fausses (Chamberet, voce Garmann in Michaud, Biographie Universelle, XVI, 478-79). L'autore, nato a Merseburg nel 1640 e deceduto a Chemnitz nel 1708, fu autore anche di un Discursus physico-medicus de gemellis (Lipsia, 1667), di una De ovo humano dissertatio (Chemnitii, 1672) e di una Oologia curiosa (Zwickau, 1691). Graesse, III, 29. Wellcome, III, 90. Krivatsy, 4551. Gnudi / Webseter, pp. 295-297. Hirsch, I, 71. Garrison-Morton, 1723. Latino. Seller Inventory # 47173

About this Item: Printed by Johann Wolf for Johann Jacob Porsius, [Frankfurt], 1610. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. First Edition. Small octavo. A-Y8 (Y8 blank); [352] pp. Contemporary limp vellum, manuscript spine title. 18th or 19th-century printed and manuscript library bookplate, later monogram book label. 17th-century inscriptions, including ex dono inscription of George Keith, in title page. Modern bibliographical inscriptions in front free endpaper. Vellum worn and moderately soiled but sound. Early repair to front free endpapers, title leaf, and first leaf of text, with some resulting glue stains, occasional minor worming. After the first few leaves, contents clean. Overall very good. "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: Christian Kirchner, (Kirchneri). Leipzig:, 1670. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First edition thus. Garmann, L. Christian.(Garmanni) De Miraculis Mortuorum. 4to. [16], 112", [8]pp. Vellum with leather label,Very good copy. To a large degree a repertoire collected from extensive reading in the magic and pseudo-science of the 17th century. Garmann was an influence on Mary Shelley according to some scholars influencing the writing of Frankenstein. He along with Conrad Dipple (disciple of Athanesius Kicher) were the archetypal blueprints for the mad scientist ( Dr Frankenstien). Garmann's "Mortuary Miracles" was not entirely without scientific sense. For example, the Chemnitz physician gave an accurate citation from Tagliacozzi and discussion of restoration techniques far in advance of his contemporaries for whom plastic operations continued to be the butt of literary satire until the 19th century (see Gnudi & Webseter, pp. 295-97). Garmann also provided an early discussion of blood transfusion, referring to Lower's experiments of 1665-67. See G-M 1723, Garmann's pioneering work on the medico-legal aspects of multiple births.

About this Item: Lipsiae, Weidmann, 1670., 1670. Couverture rigide. Condition: Bon. Jaquette. Edition originale. in-4. 8ff. 112pp. 4ff. Cartonnage moderne genre ancien. Edition Originale de ce recueil de curiosités naturelles, médicales ou mystérieuses observées sur les cadavres (croissance des cheveux, transformations de la figure, accouchements post mortem, érections péniennes, etc.). Un chapitre de cet ouvrage est particulièrement important pour l'histoire de la Chirurgie Plastique et la restauration du nez. Il a pour titre: "De Nasi Insititii Sympathia" (pp. 16-25) et passe en revue les techniques connues à l’époque, notamment les travaux du célèbre Tagliacozzi avec une relation enthousiaste de son procédé, fondée sur le témoignage de l'un de ses patients opéré du nez. Christian Friederich Garmann (1640-1698), auteur d’un remarquable traité de médecine légale (cf. Garrison-Morton, 1723), fut l'un des rares auteurs de son temps à saluer les travaux de Tagliacozzi. Ses positions étaient également en avance sur son temps pour ce qui concerne la transfusion sanguine, qui est également assez longuement évoquée. Bel exemplaire, malgré le papier bruni caractéristique des papiers allemands de cette époque. Seller Inventory # 38056
