£500.00

Product description

Amsterdam: Apud Iohann Ianssonium, 1632. 1st Edition in Latin. The back of the cover consists of the original leather binding. The rest of the cover has a later leather binding. The spine has gilded engraving. Engraved title leaf which is the only page that has been repaired. 'Bohme a German philosophical mystic who had a profound influence on such later intellectual movements as idealism and Romanticism. Born of poor parents in Goerlitz Germany, as a boy he tended cattle, later becoming a shoemaker, marrying & fathering 4 children. Boehme, at the robust age of 37 in 1612, wrote his first treatise Aurora, oder Die Morgenroete in Aufgang. In 1613, an unauthorized copy of the manuscript was copied and circulated by Karl von Ender. Its reception "raised him out of his homely sphere, and made him the centre of a local circle of liberal thinkers, considerably above him in station and culture." However, the local pastor primarius of Gorlitz, Gregorius Richter, leveled a charge of heresy. The local muncipal council administered an admonishment to no further "meddle in such matters." This charge Boehme [publicly] followed for 5 years. In 1618 Boehme again started writing expository & polemical treatises. The majority of his works were written, though not formally published, from 1619 - 1624. A second major work, Der Weg zu Christo, was published in 1624, and signaled a renewal of clerical hostility. Boehem, however, was destined to suffer but a short period of this second persecution; he died of an illness on 17 November 1624. Boehme has been said to have a "fertility of ideas" and a "trasncendent greatness of religious insight." Boehme was studied by Sir Isaac Newton and influenced the work Henry More, as well as [and especially] William Law [1686 - 1761]. "Poets such as Milton, Tieck, Novalis and William Blake found inspiration in Boehme's writings.. Hegel went as far as to say that Boehme was 'the first German philosopher.'" [Wiki].
