Jan. st. v. An. 1732. auf einer gefrornen Fenster-Scheibe wahrgenommen. Frankf./ Leipsic, n.publ., 1732, 46p., etched frontisp., later boards, sm. 8vo. - Sl. yellowed/ browned; sm. hole in frontisp.; a few contemp. scribblings/ underlinings. = Christian Ludwig Liscow (1701-1760), considered the first German satirist of the Enlightenment, who "verlachte mit treffendem Spott die geschmacklose hochmütige Schulweisheit der Gelehrten, die fanatische Orthodoxie der Geistlichkeit und die kriechende Schmeichelei der Fürstendiener" (Goed. V,1, p.35), directs this writing against the theologician and physician Heinrich Jacob Sivers, who had recently published a somewhat farfetched and rashly published theory on the supposed existence of musical notes on stones which he had found along the Ostsee coast. In the parody Vitrea Fracta Liscow, employing the 'Sieverian method', claims to have discovered a knight's writings to a learned dog in the ice flowers on a window pane. Liscow's literary qualities have been considered quite equal to those of the important 18th century poet Gotthold Ephraim Lessing. Rare.

The Turkish authorities eventually ordered him to be killed by strangulation). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXIII.

Description: [Occultism]. (Pluche, N.-A.). Histoire du ciel, ou l'on recherche l'origine de l'idolatrie, et les méprises de la philosophie, sur la formation des corps célestes, & de toute la nature. Paris, Frères Estienne, 1757, 2 vols., new ed., XXXVII,(3),518,(2); (4),515,(1)p., engr. frontisp. and 25 plates by J.P. LE BAS, contemp. unif. green vellum. - Foxed. = Bibliotheca Esoterica 3691; cf. Rosenthal 2273; cf. Caillet III, 8755; cf. Barbier, Anonymes et pseudonymes I, 2916. Noél Antoine Pluche (1688-1761) was director of the French College at Lyon until his refusal to adhere to the 'Unigenitus Bull' (published on September 8th 1713). Condemnation of 101 theses from the book 'Réflexions morales sur le Nouveau Testament' by Quesnel, forced him to resign. "Pluche restated his opposition to the cosmologies proposed by the physicists. He also attempted to demonstrate that monotheism preceded polytheism" (DSB IX, p.44). The first volume is devoted mostly to Egyptian mythology, and seems based on Wharburton's studies of hyroglyphics. The second volume is a chronologcal review of creation theories. "Ouvrage utile à toute personne s'occupant de l'occulte; on y trouve des renseignements précieux. Il est ainsi divisé: le zodiaque, l'écriture symbolique, les céremonies symboliques, la théogonie, la divination, les principes d'alchimie" (Caillet). "De priester-leraar abbé Pluche is een representant van de fysico-theologie. Hij ontdekt overal de uitwerking van een 'byzonderen wille', niet het resultaat van enige door mensen te achterhalen algemene wetmatigheid, noch het effect van een toevallig gebeuren, maar 'eene uitdrukkelyke Schepping, en eene Schikking vol voorneemens, oogmerken en voorzorgen'. Hij verwerpt alle systeemdenken om des te eerder aan de palen van zijn menselijke vermogens te geraken en God des te eerder te kunnen prijzen om zijn wijze Voorzienigheid." (J. Bots, Tussen Descartes en Newton. Geloof en natuurwetenschap in de 18e eeuw in Nederland, 99. 89-9).
