    More Information:

    Cohausen (1655-1750) was a physician in Hildesheim who was noted for his satiric sense of humor. He wrote works against the use of snuff, coffee, and tea. This is a rare parody on the vanity of the clergy. One of the illustrations in this book depicts a "Monsieur L'Abbe, Prenant du Tabac" who is using snuff. {Not in Arents}. "Seine Schriten sind polemisch-satirischer Natur und tragen in ihrer wUusten Gelehrsamkeit und dem Mangel jeder Kritik den Stempel des 17. Jahrhunderts. "[Hirsch]. STCN 000008. Bayle/Thillaye Ii, 120-1. Hirsch II, 49. OCLC 32803337. (two copies-- one in US another in Scotland.) Not in RLIN.
