Aren't these two separate books? The Clangor Buccinae which appeared in the Ars Auriferae, and was translated (as Der Thon der Schalneyen) in the German Turba Philosophorum of 1613, does not sound at all like the Clangor Buccinae Propheticae of 1620. On WorldCat the full title of the 1620 work is:

Clangor Buccinae Propheticae De Novißimis temporibus, Das ist: Trommetenschall wie der Eyver unnd Zorn Gottes werde rauchen/ unnd wie der Name deß Antichristi unter dem Himmel werde außgetilget werden/ unnd solches für dem letzten Gericht/ oder Allgemeinen Tag der Aufferstehung der Todten: In dieser jetz angehenden Zeit der grossen Erndte/ da der Tempel Gottes mit dem Rohr einem Stecken gleich abgemessen wirdt ... Zu Christlichem Unterricht/ un[d] erweckung warhafftiger Buß ... /


There are two quotes from the Clangor, both on the same page towards the end of the book. Here they are. Perhaps someone recognises the quotations?

 

OK, on the basis of that, it's certainly NOT the Clangor of 1620, which focusses instead on matters prophetic! Apologies for any confusion!

I have not heard of a printed version of this work. It would be important to source a copy. Unfortunately this link is to some Google book title database, set up, I suspect, to direct people to buy items from amazon and abebooks, so it must have extracted this entry from some source. This source is, however, not identified, which is rather frustrating. When I get back to to Glasgow tomorrow, I will have a look in Bruening's Bibliography and see if it is mentioned there. He usually cites a library that holds a copy.

 


I believe the University of Wrocław has a copy,

I have just learned that there is a copy of the 1616 Schrammius edition in the Moravská Zemská Knihovna in Brno with shelf-mark ST1-0024.576

Here is a complete list of authors cited by Bonacina in his Compendiolum:

To that list add Mundus (contributor to the Turba Philosophorum).


And also Maximus. I assume this is the philosopher decapitated in 370 by order of the Roman Emperor Valens.

Obtaining a copy of the Schramm edition has cleared up another mystery. T.P. obviously stands for 'Theophrasti Paracelsi', as these are the arms of Paracelsus (much clearer in the Schramm edition!!!)

Just for the record, it would seem that extant copies of the first edition of the Bonacina are not as rare as I had thought. Using the excellent search engine provided by the University of Karlsruhe:

http://www.ubka.uni-karlsruhe.de/kvk/kvk/kvk_en.html

I have managed to track down at least one more, e.g.:

Argent, on an inescutcheon Or between eight crosses formy
couped in orle Azure, a bend sinister of the last, charged with three plates!!!!

The "Christmas Party" hat with the feathers is fun. I assume these are his own arms as granted to him and not those of his family. Any significance in the crosses formy (Templar crosses?) and why eight?
