Jacob Behmen London Printed for G. Robinson (publisher).

'The Works of Jacob Behmen', printed in London for G. Robinson, 1772. This work was published between 1764 and 1781 in four volumes. This is volume 3 - the one with the movable plates! According to The Ritman Library, "The theosophical ‘pop-up’ diagrams are astonishingly complex works of art, opening up to reveal deeper layers of meaning"

3 multi-layered moveable plates, which represent Man in his different threefold state: before his fall, in purity and glory: after his fall, in pollution and perdition: and the third rising from the fall, on the way of regeneration. All movables in excellent condition.

Quarto, recently re-bound in dark quarter calf over marbled boards with Modern grey endpapers. Spine retains two original morocco gilt lettering pieces. Contents in very good clean condition with slight toning and light foxing. Second plate with short closed tear, plates otherwise in excellent fine condition.

Leaves measure 28 cm x 21 cm - 11" x 8¼"
