Bibliotheca Medico-Historica & Mathematica, Consueto Auctionis more publice dividenda in Aedibus Lohmeierianis Berolinensibus, quae noviter sunt constructae in ... Heil. Geist-Strasse. Initium auctionis die xv. Berlin: Johann Lorentz, 1708.
Small 8o (154 x 95 mm). (Hole on title with loss of a several letters, some browning and staining.) Disbound.
An apparently unrecorded early Berlin sale catalogue, not in Loh. It is not clear whether the name of the owner or auctioneer was Lohmeier; only three other book sales were held in Berlin in 1708. The printer, Lorentz, had started his career by acquiring the printing house of David Salfeld in 1704. This was an interesting medical and scientific library of important texts, many of them printed in Holland during the seventeenth century.
