[sig. (?)8v] Typographus Lectori S[alutem] D[icit].

Plura haberemus, amice lector, de quibus te certiorem libenter redderemus, & consilia nostra in Paracelsicis edendus tam Latinè quàm Germanicè pluribus explicaremus: quorum præter ea quæ vides hoc volumine prolata, partem bonam adhuc habemus: sed vt res humanæ sunt fluxæ & inconstantes, nihil affirmare audemus, nisi quæ præsens oculis vides.   Id autem vnum tibi de nobis certò polliceri potes, nos omnem operam, diligentiam atque sollicitudinem dare atque daturos esse, vt quò ad fieri poterit, nullis impensis parcentes nobiscum voti aliquando compos fias. Vale.

Greetings to the reader from the printer.

Dear reader and friend, we would have more to share with you, and we would gladly inform you of our plans for publishing Paracelsian works in both Latin and German. We have a good portion of these works still in our possession, in addition to what you see in this volume. However, as human affairs are fluid and unstable, we dare not make any definite claims, except for what you can see before your eyes at present.

One thing we can promise you is that we will spare no effort, diligence, or care to ensure that, to the best of our ability, you will eventually be satisfied with us, without sparing any expense. Farewell.
