Some foxing, though mainly marginal and 2 plates with some staining while towards the end there is a marginal brown stain not touching the plate area but for the last few text pages just touching the letters. The yellow glazed endpapers are brown mottled. Illustrations 1-80 show nature mostly as groups of animals and plants. Illustrations 81-241 depict trades incl. several cooking scenes, miners, textile weaving, wig-makers etc. 243-256 cosmography & geography showing different religions, virtues. 269-282 show children playing, men playing billiards, wrestling, circus & theatres, lessons in fencing, dancing, balloon rides, fireworks, bullfights, horse racing, a marvellous train with a postillion blowing a horn & open coaches and a chimney like a barber's pole, later we see deep sea diving bells being used to salvage cannons. There is an example of slave traders, a summer fair and Christmas celebrations, finally a few more trades, eg. forging steel, the file maker, carpets being made, nightwatchman, messenger and post with finally a grave-side scene. Each illustration is accompanied by a 5 language text - English, German, French & Latin and, newly added for the first time in this edition, Italian. These describe the animals and the trades etc. This Gailer reworking of the Orbis Pictus is nearly a new book and makes one of the most complete book of trades (cf. Seebass 398 Wegehaupt I 697).

Munich, Lucas Straub (first edition). 1652 Folding plate of veins and arteries (one only of 6 plates). . Small quarto marbled paper boards, spine re-backed in old leather on 5 cords with 19th century red leather gilt title label laid on. First edition of this important early work on melancholia, neurology and alchemy - [xviii] +524pp +[11]pp index & errata +3 leaves blank. Lacks engraved titlepage (supplied in facsimile) and all but one of 6 plates. Printed Title and following 340pp badly cropped at fore-edge with loss of last letter of each line of title and most of marginal guide notes, remaining pages affected by light marks of previous damp at fore-edge. *Damaged and defective copy of very rare first edition of this important work on melancholia and neurology. Geiger came from a prestigious dynasty of German physicians working in Bavaria & Munich. Melancholia was then generally considered to result from excess black bile, which Galen had earlier described as the culprit in cancer. Geiger's book sets the disease in early-modern scientific context: chapters include essays on medicine, alchemy, natural science, literature, and mythology (FASEB Journal June 2012, Graesse, III, 40).
