Paracelsus: Selected Writing.

London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1951. First British Edition. Hardcover. Originally published in German in 1942. "The enigmatic sixteenth-century Swiss physician and natural philosopher Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, called Paracelsus, is known for the almost superhuman energy with which he produced his innumerable writings, for his remarkable achievements in the development of science, and for his reputation as a visionary (not to mention sorcerer) and alchemist. This illustrated anthology is a selection of the moral thought of a man who was not only a self-willed genius charged with the dynamism of an impetuous and turbulent age but also in many ways a humble seeker after truth, who deeply influenced C. G. Jung and his followers."--Wiki. Very Good. No Dustjacket. Bumped corners, rubbing, slight dampening to cloth, date stamp to title page verso, else tight, bright, and unmarred. Bound in green cloth and gilt titling. 8vo. 346 pp. with 148 reproductions of woodcut illustrations throughout, some full-page, and frontispiece portrait of Paracelsus. Item #10382
