A black sun - from 'Splendor solis'

Print Description

A Black Sun - from 'Splendor Solis' , a 16th century German alchemical manual attributed to Splendor Solis (The Splendour of the Sun) attributed to 'Salomon Trismosin'. This edition (probably 19th century ) is in the Wellcome Collection.

Based on an original watercolour illustration from Splendor Solis ('The Splendour of the Sun'), a German alchemical manual dating from around 1582.

The original of Splendor Solis, which contained seven chapters, appeared in Augsburg. The author of the manuscript was considered to be the legendary Salomon Trismosin, allegedly the teacher of Paracelsus, though the name is believed to be a pseudonym. The work consists of a sequence of 22 elaborate images, set in ornamental borders and niches. The symbolic process shows the classical alchemical death and rebirth of the king, and incorporates a series of seven flasks, each associated with one of the then-known planets. Within the flasks a process is shown involving the transformation of bird and animal symbols into the Queen and King, the white and the red tincture. Although the style of the Splendor Solis illuminations suggest an earlier date, they are clearly of the 16th century.

    The Concourse of the Birds

    Print Description

    "The Concourse of the Birds", Folio 11r from a Mantiq al-tair (Language of the Birds). 



    Painting by Habiballah of Sava (active ca. 1590–1610) , Ink, opaque watercolor, gold, and silver on paper 
Folio from an illustrated manuscript. 
Author : Farid ud-din Attar. circa 1600 CE; Safavid Iran
'The illustration on this folio depicts a scene from a mystical poem, Mantiq al-tair (Language of the Birds),written by a twelfth-century Iranian, Farid al-Din 'Attar. The birds, which symbolize individual souls in search of the simurgh (a mystical bird representing ultimate spiritual unity), are assembled in an idyllic landscape to begin their pilgrimage under the leadership of a hoopoe (perched on a rock at center right). The careful, harmonious composition is consistent with that of the late fifteenth-century Timurid miniatures also in the manuscript, but three factors indicate that this image is later: the presence of the hunter, who has no place in the narrative; his firearm, a weapon that gained currency in Iran after the mid-sixteenth century; and the signature of the late sixteenth- to early seventeenth-century artist Habiballah' - From the website of The Metropolitan Museum , NYC.

        Device for Keeping Eyes Shut by Georg Bartisch - c. 1583

        Print Description

        Images from Ophthalmodouleia - 1583 by by German physician Georg Bartisch (1535–1607).

        This Greek word means 'the service of the eyes', literally 'eye-service', although it can also be translated as 'when the eye is upon you', as in Ephesians 6:6 when it is usually read in the sense of 'under observation'.

        Oφθαλμοδουλεια is an important work for several reasons. At a time when most scholarly works were still written in Latin, and the lingua franca of scholars all over Europe, rather than the vernacular, it was written and published in the author’s native German. The work was printed in 1583 by Matthes Stockel of Dresden at Bartisch’s own expense. It was the first systematic work in ocular disease being logically arranged, beginning with the anatomy of the head and eye and progressing to more specific treatments for strabismus, cataracts (distinguishing between the six different types), trachoma, external growths on the lids, injuries and foreign bodies. It is extremely well illustrated, containing 91 full page wood cuts, produced by Hans Hewamaul but thought to be based on Bartisch’s own watercolours. The illustrations cover eye defects, surgical instruments and methods of curing diseases and injuries of the eye. They are very detailed and in several cases use an overlay technique which enables the reader to 'dissect' parts of the head or eye by lifting up successive flaps. The book was intended for the information of both laymen and surgeons and as Daniel M Albert has suggested, its very completeness documents George Bartisch’s right to be styled 'the founder of modern ophthalmology'. - College of Optometrists

        Death's Head by Jan Saenredam - c. 1598

        In a time of rampant disease and war with higher mortality rates than today, the image of a skull or skeleton, called a memento mori, offered a reminder to be good in the face of death and eternal damnation.

        Two quotations in Latin and Greek surround the central picture: “Perhaps there is a safe place against all threats, but there is no fortress safe from death’s rule. Whether we merit the scepter or plow the earth with the hoe, all of us must pay death its due,” and “Each should remember that he stretches out mortal limbs.” - Philly Museum of Art

        Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527–1593) - The allegory of Fire

        The allegory of Fire combines objects that are related to fire. The cheek is formed by a large firestone, the neck and chin are formed by a burning candle and an oil lamp, the nose and ear are contoured by firesteels; a blond moustache is formed by a crossed bundle of wood shavings for kindling, the eye is an extinguished candle stub, the forehead area is a wound-up fuse, the hair of the head forms a crown of blazing logs. The breast is composed of fire weapons: mortar and canon barrels together with the respective gunpowder shovel and a pistol barrel. Prominently positioned in the picture is the collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece, beneath which the imperial double-eagle can be seen: a clear reference to the Habsburg House and the beneficiary of the series, Emperor Maximilian II.

His definitive work on the subject was the Gemmarum et Lapidum Historia (1609).

        De Boodt was also a gifted draughtsman who made many natural history illustrations and developed a natural history taxonomy.
