HELMONT, F.M. v. Alphabeti vere naturalis hebraici brevissima delineatio. Quæ simul methodum suppeditat, juxta quam qui surdi nati sunt sic informari possunt, ut non alios saltem loquentes intelligant, sed & ipsi ad sermonis usum perveniant. Sulzbach, A. Lichtenthal, 1657 (recte 1667). (34), 107 pp. W. engr. front. by J. Franck & 36 engr. of the speech organs. 12°. Cont. cf. w. dec. gilt back & red label. (Rehinged, stamps on free endpaper & v° front. (not shining through), upper margin a bit stained in places, slightly browned, margins trimmed). Franciscus Mercurius v. Helmont (1618-99). - First edition. "... of most interest at the present day. The work not only attempts to expound the principal of a rational alphabet, but to explain the method of teaching deaf-mutes to understand what is said by the motions of the lips. Helmont asserts that the Hebrew language is the most appropriate language for this". (Ferguson I, 379-80); Hirsch III, 143; Osler, 2927; Waller, 19735; Caillet, 11015: "Traité peu commun".
