[Amsterdam: J. Janssonius], 1635. Small 12mo, pp. 403 [i.e. 405]; title page stained and with neat Japanese tissue repair on verso, else a very good, sound copy in contemporary full vellum, ink titling on spine. Boehme (1575-1624), shoemaker, glove-maker, Protestant mystic, and the founder of modern theosophy, published little in his lifetime, and what was published brought him endless trouble with the Church authorities. This title, The Signature of All Things, written in High Dutch in 1622, appears here in printed form for the first time 11 years after his death. Arguably it is the title for which he is most famous, and it is involked by James Joyce in the Proteus episode in Ulysses. Ineluctable modality of the visible. BM STC German, 1601-1700, B-1651. Item #26555
