The Summum Bonum by Fludd (or Frizius) is now available in a German translation:

That is interesting. I note this publisher  has issued a number of titles, some on alchemy, but many on 19th and 20th century occultism and esotericism. They are also using a number of my coloured images for the covers of their books, without my permission. I cannot understand how people are getting hold of high res scans of my images. They can only do this by illegally cracking the encryption of the pdf file I supply on my emblem discs. It is rather depressing because I am quite happy to allow these to be used for a very small fee. Perhaps someone is even distributing these files to unsuspecting publishers.

There is, of course, an English translation of part of the Summum Bonum in Paul Allen's Rudolph Steiner Anthology.

I noticed that a copy of  Fludd's

Utriusque Cosmi maioris scilicet et minoris metaphysica, physica atque technica historia in duo volumina secundum cosmi differentiam divisa [and] Tractatus secundis de naturae simia seu technica macrocosmi historia... Oppenheim; Hieronymus Gallerus for Johan-Theodor de Bry, 1617-18.

is currently (April 2008)  for sale on Abebooks from a UK  dealer for £13,500.
