I am working on a bibliography of the alchemical works owned/read/cited by Isaac Newton. Many of the alchemical titles referenced by Newton were printed in the first half of the seventeenth century in Frankfurt; I am wondering if anyone is aware of scholarship on alchemical publishing in Frankfurt (or Germany, generally) during the early-modern period? Several of the texts, for example, were printed by Guilielmi Fitzeri in 1630.
In addition to this narrow query, I am more generally trying to track down previous scholarship on the print culture of alchemy. I am aware of the usual suspects, such as Ambix and Harrison’s The Library of Isaac Newton, of course; however, I have yet to encounter work that specifically deals with the history of alchemical printing. So, any general references in this vein would be much appreciated.
I'm not sure if references to German scholarship would be tremendously helpful, but this one certainly came to mind:
Kassell, Lauren, 'Secrets Revealed: Alchemical Books in Early-Modern England', History of Science 49 (2011), 61-87.
Please feel free to pass it along.
