 152 [+1]. This copy lacks the blank leaves at the front and back. This is an elegant full leather binding with all edges gilt. The covers and spine are geometrically decorated, that is with all straight lines. The endpapers are marbled. This copy has one slight defect on pages 145-146. A smallish piece of this leaf was missing and has been skillfully been made whole. Ten words that were missing have been supplied in manuscript (printed in black ink). Nine of the words which have been supplied are clear, but one is obscure. The pages are a bit browned, but not seriously so. There is very little foxing. This is the very rare first English edition. It is Osler 2457 and Wing D1435. Osler has a long annotation and was fascinated by the rarity of this work. The DSB speaks of Digby's cure as follows: "In 1657 his increasingly poor health led Digby to take the waters at Montpellier, where he gave his famous account of the 'powder of sympathy,' which cured wounds by being rubbed on the weapon that inflicted them. It was a strong solution of vitriol (copper sulphate) in rainwater, which could be imnproved by drying in the sun and by mixture with gum tragacanth. It worked by a combination of occult and natural powers, that is, by attraction and by the small material particles given off by all objects." (DSB4.95b) Size: 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall.
