Description:

Mit Holzschn.-Druckermarke a. d. Titel, blattgr. Holzschnitt-Porträt a. d. Titelrückseite und 32 großen Textholzschnitten. 8 Bll., 552 Seiten. Pergamentband der Zeit. Seltene zweite Ausgabe des zuerst 1588 in Neapel erschienenen kuriosen Kräuterbuchs, verfaßt von dem berühmten italienischen Occultisten della Porta. - Caillet, der nur eine Ausgabe von 1650 angibt, schreibt hierzu: "Un des ouvrages les plus curieux qu'ait écrits le fameux occultiste napolitain. Il traite de la ressemblance, des correspondances, des sympathies et antipathies aqui existent entre les plantes et les minéraux, les animaux et l'homme". - In diesem Werk ist Porta der Schöpfer der sogen. "Signatura rerum" in wissenschaftl. Gestalt, indem er versucht, aus der Ähnlichkeit mancher Pflanzen mit Teilen des menschl. Körpers oder dessen Säften Teilzusammenhänge herzustellen, z. B. Pflanzen mit gelbem Saft und gelbe Blumen sollen auf die gelbe Galle wirken. Oder Tierähnlichkeiten mit Pflanzen. Neu ist der geographische Standort und dessen Einfluß, auch wenn die Pflanze wandert. - Stellenw. fleckig, wenige Bll. im weißen Rand ausgebessert. Titel mit Spuren von altem hs. Besitzverm., zahlr. hs. Nummerierungen am Rand; Exlibris von Fritz Werle. - Adams, P 1939. Nissen 463. Arber, Herbals, p. 209. Stiftung für Botanik Liechtenstein 616. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Arber, pp. 208-210; BMC NH, p. 1598; Nissen, BBI 463; VD 16, P4331; Wood, p. 522; DSB XI, pp. 95-98; cf. Hunter 158 (first ed). Second edition of Porta's work on the doctrine of signatures and it is sometimes held that he was the real originator of this doctrine. Giambattista della Porta (1535-1615) believed that the external form of man indicates his internal qualities. Expanding this theory to plants, he maintained that the external form of plants reveals their internal healing powers. The plants that resemble particular parts of the body should be considered as suitable medication for illnesses in those particular body parts. "The back view of a human head with a thick crop of hair is introduced into the block with the Maidenhair Fern, which is an ancient specific for baldness; a Pomegranate with its seeds exposed, and a plant of "Toothwort," with its hard, white scale-leaves, are represented in the same figure as a set of human teeth" (Arber, p. 209). Porta also discusses the resemblance of plants and animal parts. A study of the character of the animal would provide clues to the medical qualities of the resembling plant. Phytognomonica was first published in Naples in 1588.In very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # S1408
