Item Description: Sebastiani - Arché, Milano, 1976. In-16°, pp. 128, (2), brossura editoriale. Perfetto stato. Ristampa anastatica di questo trattato esoterico secentesco del Croll (Marburgo, 1560 ca.-Praga, 1609) sulla paracelsiana dottrina delle segnature (De signatura rerum), costituente la terza parte della sua opera maggiore, la Basilica chymica. Eliphas Levi scrisse a proposito di questo trattato che Crollius cherchait à établir que Dieu et la nature ont en quelque sorte signé tous leurs ouvrages, et que tous les produits d'une force quelconque de la nature portent, pour ainsi dire, l'estampille de cette force imprimée en caractères indélébiles, en sorte que l'initié aux écritures occultes puisse lire à livre ouvert les sympathies et les antipathies des choses, les propriétés des substances et tous les autres secrets de la création. Les caractères des différentes écritures seraient primitivement empruntés à ces signatures naturelles qui existent dans les étoiles et dans les fleurs, sur les montagnes et sur le plus humble caillou. Les figures des cristaux, les cassures des minéraux, seraient des empreintes de la pensée que le Créateur avait en les formant. (Histoire de la Magie). Francese. Bookseller Inventory # 49135

Oswald Croll [c. 1560 - 1609] was a professor of medicine and alchemy at the University of Marburg in Hesse, Germany. A strong proponent of alchemy and of using chemistry in medicine, he attempted to influence thinkers of his day towards viewing chemistry and alchemy as two separate fields. He published one volume in 1609, the year of his death, containing two books "Basilica Chymica" (La Royalle Chymie) and "De signatura rerum" (Traicte des Signatures) plus a long preface in which he expounds the ideas of Paracelsus to whom he was devoted. The Royalle Chymie is a comprehensive summary of his researches, methods of preparation, and studies into chemical medicine or iatrochemistry. He pushes for the understanding and recognition of chemical compounds and the medicinal value of herbs and other processes first advanced by Paracelsus. It also discussed matters such as compound remedies, chemical organisation and acted as an introduction to chemistry in later years. The Traicte des Signatures covered the relation of alchemy and chemistry to other fields of science, especially botany, suggesting the use of the doctrine of signatures to determine the medical property of plants.
