         Observationum medicarum rariorum, libri VII. In quibus nova, abdita, admirabilia, monstrosaque exempla, circa anatomen, aegritudinum causas, signa, eventus, curationes, a veteribus recentioribusque sive medicis, .

      Huguetan, Lyon 1643 - Folio. Pergament der Zeit mit handgeschriebenem Rückentitel und einfachen Kordelschließen (abgetrennt), 21 Bll., 892 S., 23 Bll. Mit Kupferstich-Porträt des Autors. Es fehlt das Titelblatt. ADB 31, 58. Eloy IV, 208. Vgl. Garrison/M. 2272 (Ausgabe Frankfurt, 1600). Letzte Ausgabe des Hauptwerks von Schenck (1530 - 1598), die erste erschien als Folge der einzelnen Teile in Basel und Freiburg von 1584 bis 1597. Nach Studium in Tübingen war Schenck kurz als niedergelassener Arzt in Straßburg tätig, bevor er Stadtphysicus in Freiburg wurde. Er gilt als einer der angesehensten Mediziner seiner Zeit. Bedeutend ist sein kasuistisches Sammelwerk vor allem durch die Einbeziehung der pathologischen Anatomie und die Vielzahl genauer Beobachtungen von Krankheitsbildern. - Interessant an der vorliegenden Ausgabe ist die handschriftliche Kennzeichnung ("Auctor damnatus") derjenigen medizinischen Autoren in Schenk's Register, die zur damaligen Zeit auf dem Index der katholischen Kirche standen. Diese Fleißarbeit wurde offenbar durch einen Mönch namens Vincentius Pons vorgenommen, der die damals gültigen Indexausgaben auf dem Vortitel vermerkt hat. - Der Pergamenteinband altersgemäß fleckig, mit schmaler Fehlstelle am unteren Rand des Vorderdeckels, sonst gut. Die Vorsätze mit Spuren eines Wasserschadens (etwas wellig/fleckig) und mit einzelnen Wurmlöchern. Innen teils gebräunt und stockfleckig. Einige weitere Seiten am Anfang bzw. Ende mit kleinen Löchern am Rand, darunter auch das Porträt. Insgesamt ein noch ordentliches Exemplar. 3010 Gramm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Orbis Maritimi sive rerum in Mari et Littoribus gestarum generalis historia . Opus unica Centuria contentum, quae in duos Libros divisa & partita est

      Petrum Palliot, Divione (Dijon) 1643 - Folio, (24) p., 725, (9) p. de índice, 9 grabados calcográficos con monedas, 23 mapas dentro del texto, y 11 grabados con embarcaciones. En la pág 66 grabado a toda página con la representación de una columna con trofeos navales incrustados coronada por una figura, grabada por Palliot; entre las págs. 194-195, espectacular lámina plegada con una bellísima representación de una batalla naval. Mancha en el margen superior e inferior de varias páginas, que no afectan al texto. Páginas 161 a 201 puntos de polilla en el margen inferior, convenientemente restaurados, sin afectar al texto. Por un error de encuadernación, la 1ª pág. del prefacio está mal colocada. Falta, al principio, una portada calcográfica. Pergamino reforzado, lomo con letras pintadas. Primera y única edición de la primera historia naval, marítima y de los descubrimientos. Obra muy importante, que interesa tanto por la personalidad de su autor y por el carácter enciclopédico del texto, con todos los conocimientos sobre asuntos marítimos de la época, como por la cantidad de ilustraciones, que al principio son casi exclusivamente mapas, mientras en la parte final figuran un buen número de grabados con representaciones de diversos tipos de embarcaciones. El color tostado del volumen es debido, casi exclusivamente, a la mala calidad del papel, propia de muchas obras del siglo XVII. Historia de América. Historia universal. Historia naval. Descubrimientos. History of America. Universal history. Naval history. Discoveries.

         Magnes, sive, de arte magnetica opus tripartitum, quo praeterquam quod universa magnetis natura, eiusque in omnibus artibus & scientijs usus nova methodo explicetur … Edito secunda post romanam multo correctior

      Coloniae Agrippinae [i.e. Cologne]: apud Iodocum Kalcoven. 1643. Small 4to, pp. [28], 797, [39]; engraved title-p., 29 engraved plates, numerous interesting woodcut illustrations in the text; a number of leaves with early ink marginalia; contemporary, if not original drab paste-paper boards; worn and soiled, even uniform toning of the text, occasional mild dampstains; a good, sound copy. Merrill 4, citing the first edition of 1641: "Kircher's Magnes is filled with curiosities, both profound and frivolous. The work does not deal solely with what modern physicists call magnetism. Kircher discusses, for example, the magnetism of the earth and heavenly bodies; the tides; the attraction and repulsion in animals and plants; and the magnetic attraction of music and love. He also explains the practical application of magnetism in medicine, hydraulics, and even in the construction of scientific instruments and toys … The book contains the first use of the word … 'electro-magnetism' p. 640). Kircher's Magnes contains all that was known in his day on electricity and magnetism, forces that even today baffle scientists." Hoover Collection of Mining and Metallurgy, 481.Graesse IV, 21.

      Jodocus Kalcoven,, 1643.. 17th c. English calf with blind tooling, rebacked with title on red morocco label, some offsetting from leather turn-ins, some minor paper darkening, a very good copy; Contemporary ownership inscriptions: "Robert Pierrepont 1652; and "ex dono Dni Georgii More Liber Guilielmi Cartwright" on f.f.e.p. [See Below.]. 29 (of 30) engraved plates, lacks frontis. , as often, 178 text cuts.. 4to.. Second Edition. ...one of the most interesting works of father Kircher's wonderful and all-embracing scientific genius (or at least industry) and most valuable as a storehouse of all that was known of the magnet at the time...It contains moreover several original observations, i.e. the influence of volcanic eruptions on the magnetic needle, numerous experiments...the first use of the term 'electro-magnetism." Zeitlinger 'Kircher's Magnes is filled with curiosities, both profound and frivolous. The work does not deal solely with what modern physicists call magnetism. Kircher discusses, for example, the magnetism of the earth and heavenly bodies; the tides; the attraction and repulsion in animals and plants; and the magnetic attraction of music and love. He also explains the practical applications of magnetism in medicine, hydraulics, and even in the construction of scientific instruments and toys. In the epilogue Kircher moves from the practical to the metaphysical -- and Aristotelian -- when he discusses the nature and position of God: 'the central magnet of the universe.'...Kircher's Magnes contains all that was known in his day on electricity and magnetism.' Merrill. Kircher's fame was international but he was particularly famous in England where he had several close friends. The contemporary inscriptions and binding of this copy show that it must have passed immediately after printing to his enlightened readership there. The William Cartwright could well be William Cartwright, 1611-1643, dramatist and divine. " The king, who was then at Oxford, being asked why he wore black on the day of Cartwright's funeral, replied that 'since the muses had so much mourned for the loss of such a son it would be a shame for him not to appear in mourning for the loss of such a subject.' Fell said of him, 'Cartwright was the utmost man could come to;' and Ben Jonson declared 'My son Cartwright writes all like a man.' Langbaine gives him this character: 'He was extremely remarkable both for his outward and inward endowments; his body being as handsome as his soul. He was an expert linguist, understanding not only Greek and Latin, but French and Italian, as perfectly as his mother-tongue. He was an excellent orator, and yet an admirable poet.'

".one of the most interesting works of father Kircher's wonderful and all-embracing scientific genius (or at least industry) and most valuable as a storehouse of all that was known of the magnet at the time.It contains moreover several original observations, i.e. the influence of volcanic eruptions on the magnetic needle, numerous experiments.the first use of the term 'electro-magnetism." Zeitlinger 'Kircher's Magnes is filled with curiosities, both profound and frivolous. The work does not deal solely with what modern physicists call magnetism. Kircher discusses, for example, the magnetism of the earth and heavenly bodies; the tides; the attraction and repulsion in animals and plants; and the magnetic attraction of music and love. He also explains the practical applications of magnetism in medicine, hydraulics, and even in the construction of scientific instruments and toys. In the epilogue Kircher moves from the practical to the metaphysical -- and Aristotelian -- when he discusses the nature and position of God: 'the central magnet of the universe.'.Kircher's Magnes contains all that was known in his day on electricity and magnetism.' Merrill. Kircher's fame was international but he was particularly famous in England where he had several close friends. The contemporary inscriptions and binding of this copy show that it must have passed immediately after printing to his enlightened readership there. The William Cartwright could well be William Cartwright, 1611-1643, dramatist and divine. " The king, who was then at Oxford, being asked why he wore black on the day of Cartwright's funeral, replied that 'since the muses had so much mourned for the loss of such a son it would be a shame for him not to appear in mourning for the loss of such a subject.' Fell said of him, 'Cartwright was the utmost man could come to;' and Ben Jonson declared 'My son Cartwright writes all like a man.' Langbaine gives him this character: 'He was extremely remarkable both for his outward and inward endowments; his body being as handsome as his soul. He was an expert linguist, understanding not only Greek and Latin, but French and Italian, as perfectly as his mother-tongue. He was an excellent orator, and yet an admirable poet.' Lloyd is still more enthusiastic in his praise: 'To have the same person cast his net and catch souls as well in the pulpit as on the stage! 'A miracle of industry and wit, sitting sixteen hours a day at all manner of knowledge, an excellent preacher in whom hallowed fancies and reason grew visions and holy passions, raptures and extasies, and all this at thirty years of age!

         Voyage de Lybie au Royaume de Senega, le long du Niger, avec la Description des habitans qui sont le lon de ce fleuve, leurs coûtumes & façons de vivres: les particularités les plus remarquables de ces pays.

      A Paris, chez Charles Roüillard, M. DC. XLVIII. (1643). 1643 - 1 vol. in-12° (165 x 105 mm.) de : [8] ff. (Titre avec vignette, Dédicace, Aux Lecteurs, Table des chapitres, Extrait du Privilège), 228 pp. 3 planches gravées in-texte. Veau marbré, dos lisse orné, pièces de titre de maroquin brun et fauve, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches rougies. (Petites erreurs de pagination sans incidence sur le texte, petits manques de papier angulaires comblés, ff. 95-6 et 227-8. Avec petite perte a une planche) Edition originale de cette rare relation du voyage d’exploration entrepris par Claude Jannequin, sieur de Rochefort, né à Châlons-sur-Marne au début du 17ème siècle, qui retrace la première implantation des Français à l’embouchure du Sénégal. De 1637 à 1639, il se rendit en Libye, c’est-à-dire sur la côte occidentale d’Afrique. Il s’intitule « ancien diplomate » pour avoir accompagné Pomponne de Bellièvre, envoyé par Louis XIII comme ambassadeur en Angleterre. À la requête de quelques marchands de Rouen, Jannequin et son associé dieppois Thomas Lambert, avaient obtenu de Richelieu un privilège de dix ans pour « trafiquer au Cap-Vert, au Sénégal et à la Gambie, y compris sur le cours des deux rivières ». Forcés de partir en raison de l’insalubrité du climat, ils reprirent la mer deux ans plus tard pour se rendre aux îles du Cap-Vert, avant de regagner Dieppe en 1639. Tous deux ont remonté le fleuve jusqu’à Terrier Rouge, à une centaine de kilomètres en amont, pour acquérir de l’ambre, de l’ivoire, du poivre, des plumes d’autruche et l’or de cet eldorado africain qu’étaient les régions aurifères du Bambouk. Un arrière-pays riche, dépourvu de concurrents européens, les engagea à fortifier une habitation fixe à l’embouchure, qui sera baptisée en 1658 île Saint-Louis. La date de la relation indique l’intérêt du témoignage sur « Les façons de vivre des Nègres », leurs coutumes et cérémonies, la pratique du ramadan et de la circoncision. Jannequin est le témoin oculaire d’un combat livré par un roitelet du pays qui, armé d’une sagaie, parvient à terrasser un lion. Curieuse notation sur l’origine du nez camus des indigènes, attribué aux pressions répétées du nez des enfants en bas âge portés dans le dos de la mère en train de battre le mil. Des chapitres traitent de la « Superstition des Nègres avec leur grigris » ; de la chasse du crocodile et de l’éléphant, sans omettre la description de l’autruche. Bel exemplaire. 1 vol. 12mo. 18th century calf. First edition of this account by Claude Jannequin who travelled in Libya from 1637 until 1639. In this expedition, the French set up for the first time in Senegal. « Lambert and Jannequin ascended the Senegal as far as Terrier Rouge, where they traded for gum, gold and pepper. Treaties were concluded with the brak of the Walo and the damel of the Cayor » (Howgego I, p. 604). Fine copy. Chadenat n°5388 ; Howgego I, p. 604 ; Boucher de la Richarderie IV, p. 84.

Title I i his major, groundbreaking work on runic inscriptions in Denmark. Ole Worm founded the science of runology, and tried with this work to give a full description of all know runic inscriptions and their location. In many cases this work is the earliest source of now lost inscriptions. The text is in latin and runic, and all the monuments described are reproduced in woodcuts. The book contains a large foldout woodcut reproduction of the one of the golden horns from AD 400-450 - found in 1639 but now unfortunately lost by theft in 1802. Title II discusses to royal Danish genealogical lines rooted in mythology
