= From the library of Friedrich August von Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Oels (1740-1805). On Johann Heinrich Alsted (1588-1638): "The majority of Alsted's writings were on theology, and in them he displayed the same logical and encyclopedic approach found in the philosophical writings. (...) His writings covered the whole spectrum of natural philosophy: commentaries on the cabala, the Ars magna of Lull, mnemonics, traditional and Ramist logic, physics, mathematics, and astronomy." (DSB 1&2 p.125-127). Extremely rare. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXVII.
