Physica subterranea profundam subterraneorum genesin, e principiis hucusque ignotis, ostendens. Opus sine pari, primum hactenus et princeps, edito novissima. [...] et Specimen Beccherianum, fondamentorum documentorum, experimentorum, subjunxit Georg. Ernestus Stahl, D.

The last edition, the first having appeared in Frankfurt in 1669. Very fine engraved allegorical frontispiece.

The work is in five parts, called “Physica Subterranea”,  “Experimentum Chimicum Novum quo Artificialis et instantanea Metallorum Generatio et Transmutatio ad oculum demonstrator”, “In Physicam Subterraneam demontratio philosophica seu Theses Chimica” and “Experimentum novum ac curiosum de Minera Arenaria Perpetua”.
Contemporary vellum, ink title to head of spine, all edges speckled red. A few leaves a little browned or with light dampstaining, otherwise a fresh copy.
A collection of chemical, alchemical and mineralogical texts, with a preface by Georg Ernst Stahl, a disciple of Johann Becher.
A very good copy of the key texts of one of the finest German chemists.
