5.0 out of 5 stars greatest book
The Signatura Rerum - Signature of all things - is one of the greatest books ever written. Almost totally
unknown, it is written by the almost totally unknown 16th century German cobbler, Jacob Boehme. Boehme was
self educated and studied the contemporary alchemist Paracelsus, and his language and terminology is very
obscure and difficult. Boehme...

5.0 out of 5 stars greatest book, 13 Aug 2010
The Signatura Rerum - Signature of all things - is one of the greatest books ever written. Almost totally
unknown, it is written by the almost totally unknown 16th century German cobbler, Jacob Boehme. Boehme was
self educated and studied the contemporary alchemist Paracelsus, and his language and terminology is very
obscure and difficult. Boehme influenced many subsequent philosophers, scientists and writers, including
William Blake, William Law, Isaac Newton and, I believe Jung and many others. I have an old Everyman hardback,
and for years I sought for extra copies to give to friends but to no avail. It is extremely rare. It repays
the closest study.

3.0 out of 5 stars a locked treasure chest, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Signature of All Things (Kindle Edition)
I found this book impenetrable to one at my stage of insight. A previous text by Boehme I had found very difficult. It does start by saying that it is open only to those of advanced spiritual knowledge. My disappointment is in myself rather than any criticism of the writing of which I cannot be the judge.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointment with hard-cover edition, 3 Mar 2014
By 
Matthias Runar (Reykjavik, Iceland) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly I have not read the book. I just received it today and was disappointed. The paper is thin office paper and will not endure handling. It's very sensitive and thin. The quality of the "binding", cover and paper is none. I could just as well have downloaded and printed the text using my own printer and cheap office paper, then photocopy it for good measure. I think it is disrespectful to have this book published like this. Why is the book printed and bound in such a way that it will at most endure two readings before it is damaged or destroyed? Why is the cover so ugly? Where is the respect? Why print it on cheap office paper? I do not recommend that anyone buy the hard-cover edition from Kessinger Publishing. Hopefully this will help you find an edition of the book that is worth keeping.
