And as tuitching the futeball and the golfe, to be punished by the Baronnis un-law, and gif he takis not the un-law, that it be taken be the Kingis officiares." This volume also contains the 1491 re-confirmation by James IV: "Item, It is stature and ordained that in place of the Realme there be used fute-ball, golfe, or uther sik unprofitable sportes, for the commoun gud of the realme & defense thereof."

        Trois livres appartenans aux infirmitez et maladies des femmes. Pris du latin de M. Jean Liébaut.

      Lyon, Jean Veyrat, 1597 - Lyon, Jean Veyrat, 1597 ; 1 vol. pet. in-8 (16 x 10 cm), (8) ff., 923pp., (8) ff.; vélin souple d'époque à rabats, titre manuscrit sur dos ; ancienne mouillure au niveau de la tranche inférieure, avec tache brune dans la marge intérieure, en pied ; petite galerie de ver marginale, sans gravité, au niveau de 10 feuillets (pp. 909-928) ; ex-libris manuscrit ; papier légèrement bruni ; bon exemplaire. Remarquable traité de gynécologie-obstétrique de la Renaissance et seul exemplaire connu de cette édition ; aucun exemplaire napparaît recensé dans les bibliothèques publiques (ne figurant ni dans le CCFr, ni dans OCLC). V. Worth-Stylianou n'a pas retrouvé cette édition, décrivant une édition chez le même éditeur l'année suivante (1598), en indiquant qu'il s'agit de la première édition à paraître en dehors de la capitale.La collation est identique et le bois gravé du titre est similaire. Bien que cet ouvrage eut un énorme succès, avec un grand nombre d'éditions entre 1582 et 1674, même les exemplaires des autres éditions du XVIe siècle sont devenus rares. Jean Liébault [ou Liébaut] (vers 1535-1596), né à Dijon, se fit recevoir docteur à Paris, où il s'installa. Il épousa la fille de l'imprimeur Charles Estienne. Il devint, à la fin de sa vie, premier médecin de Catherine de Bourbon, soeur d'Henri IV. Cet ouvrage est divisé en 3 livres : la gynécologie est traitée dans les livres I et II, l'obstétrique dans le dernier livre. Cest à tort qu'il a été souvent considéré comme une traduction de celui de Marinello, intitulé "Le Medicine partenenti alle infermita delle donne". Certes, Liébault s'est beaucoup inspiré de Marinello sans le citer et en s'attribuant la paternité d'un texte original latin (qui n'a jamais été retrouvé). Mais, comme l'a bien montré V. Worth-Stylianou, Liébault a considérablement augmenté le nombre de chapitres (de plus du double) ; il traite notamment de sujets non abordés par Marinello : nature de la femme, santé et maladies des vierges, semences, conceptions monstrueuses, allaitement. Et dans les chapitres aux titres similaires, Liébault a fait "des ajouts systématiques majeurs". A la différence de Marinello, Liébault cite ses sources et n'hésite pas à remettre en cause des idées reçues ou à participer à des débats controversés (il défend par exemple la théorie des deux semences). Il agrémente aussi son texte d'observations et d'anecdotes, et veut toucher un très large public (médical et non médical, féminin et masculin). E. Berriot-Salvadore qualifie Liébault de "précurseur de la gynécologie", et estime que ses publications "sont l'illustration la plus remarquable de cette modifications des comportements", présentant une autre image de la femme, suite à la remise en question des concepts galéniques et aristotéliciens. Nous pensons aussi avec V. Worth-Stylianou que Liébault "faisait partie d'une petite série de 'vulgarisateurs' exceptionnels [avec Paré, Guillemeau et Louise Bourgeois]."

Auch die übrigen Teile wurden durchgesehen. Wiederum griff man zu der gehaltvollen, eingehenden Vorrede Leo Juds. Das Vorwort des Buchdruckers ist von Johannes Wolf neu bearbeitet, Der schöne, barocke Titelrahmen blieb der alte, von Jost Amman gezeichnete, nur die Büchermarke in der untern Bordüre änderte man entsprechend ab. An die Stelle des bisherigen Kopfholzschnittes zur Genesis trat ein neuer, von dem talentierten Zürcher Maler Christoph Murer entworfener. Die Zeichnung trägt den Stempel des Barock, zeigt aber nicht nur stilistisch, sondern auch dogmatisch eine Umgestaltung. Die evangelische Glaubenslehre gestaltete sich aber zusehends strenger und zurückhaltender, so dass man nunmehr dazu gelangte, das Bildnis Gott-Vaters durchwegs auszumerzen. Bei dem neuen Schöpfungsgebilde erschien die Person Gottes daher nicht mehr in der Darstellung. Dafür steht nunmehr das hebräische Tetragramm Jahve (Jehova) in einer Wolke, im Strahlenglanz der Sonne, in dessen Lichtschein die werdende Eva aus den Lenden Adams emporsteigt. Ferner kommen 184 Abbildungen vor, neu hinzugekommen sind 31 neue Stöcke, von denen 5 wiederholt abgedruckt werden, ebenfalls nach Zeichnungen Murers. Die abgenützten Formen Vogtherrs zum Neuen Testament wurden weggelassen. Bei den 21 apokalyptischen Darstellungen ersetzte man, soweit möglich, das Bildnis Gott-Vaters ebenfalls durch das Tetragramm. Die Bildinitialen sind verschwunden". - Es fehlt im AT das Blatt XXXIIII mit 1 Holzschnitt (Kopien vorhanden). - (Lederbezug berieben, am Rücken und Hinterdeckel eingerissen.

        The garden of health: containing the sundry rare and hidden vertues and properties of all kindes of simples and plants. Together with the manner how they are to bee used and applyed in medicine for the health of mans body, against divers diseases and infirmities most common amongst men.

      Preparing for a trip from England to Virginia or Massachusetts in the 1630s or 40s, one would have been well advised to make sure someone in the party was bringing a copy of Langham's work. Once in America, one would have made good use of the herbal remedies for some of the more common ailments the newly arrived would have suffered, and one would have had greater access to the "exotic" American sarsaparilla and guaiacum that Langham discusses. This precursor to the "Physician's Desk Reference" is a practical compendium of medicinal and other plants arranged alphabetically from "acacia" to "wormwood" with a strong emphasis on plants that "can be gotten without any cost or labour, the most of them being such as grow in most places and are common among us" (folio [2]). Langham's organization is this: "He devoted a chapter to each plant, describing its parts and their uses, the different processes such as distillation that could be applied to it, and how the resulting products could be used for particular diseases. To every item of information he added a number and at the end of the chapter there is an index or table of conditions with the numbers that were in the main text. The reader can thus see at a glance that one herb could be used in a wide variety of conditions, and whether a specific illness could be helped by a particular drug" (Wear, pp. 82-83).This is the second edition, "corrected and amended," the first having appeared in 1597. We are sure the reading public, which was sufficient to support a second edition, would have been helped rather more if the work had had illustrations, but that would have increased the cost of the work dramatically and a => wide audience was sought. The text is printed chiefly in gothic type while the end of chapter "indices" are in roman. This herbal was not printed during a period of good English typography, so the pages are dense with little white space or appreciation for making the text on the page easy on the eye rather than wearying.

Un mezzo eroe che iniziò come bancario in fuga per una grossa somma non contabilizzata; che fallì in un'impresa mercantile in Napoli; finalmente che fece carriera nel management militare del nuovo regime repubblicano di Firenze (1494), con brillanti intuizioni in merito all'inefficienza del sistema d'ingaggio dei capitani di ventura, al rivoluzionario utilizzo operativo delle milizie rurali, al geniale tentativo di deviare il corso dell'Arno per privare i pisani di acqua e transito. «Esemplare bellissimo appartenuto ad Apostolo Zeno» [Razzolini, nota ms.]. In stato molto buono e d'illustre provenienza.

      Alden & Landis 633/67; Hunt 224; Krivatsy 6665. Second edition of an English encyclopaedia of practical medical botany for household use as well as for doctors and apothecaries, discussing about 420 plants, first published in 1597. It describes the plant's parts and their uses, the preparation of medicines from the plant and their use in treating various ailments, and includes some American plants that had only recently reached Europe when Langham wrote. The books emphasis on common plants that "are gotten without any great cost or labour", suggests it is intended for household use and for those who cared for the poor, but it also gives instructions for distillation and other processes that an amateur would be less likely to attempt than an apothecary. While the title must have been influenced by the 1485 Gart der Gesundheit or 1491 [H]ortus sanitatis, the text is quite independent. With worm trails slightly affecting the text in about 15 leaves, damage to the lower outside corner of a few leaves, affecting a few words on Z4, a smudge around the date on the title-page and slightly browned, but otherwise in good condition. The spine and hinges show some cracks and the boards a few small worm holes, but otherwise also good.

And as tuitching the futeball and the golfe, to be punished by the Baronnis un-law, and gif he takis not the un-law, that it be taken be the Kingis officiares."

The court of requests was a minor equity court that flourished during the Tudor and Stuart periods. It was established in the reign of Henry VII as a low-fee appeal court intended to accompany the sovereign on progress around the country. Abolished during the Commonwealth, it is important as an ancestor of the small claims court. Also, its records offer a good deal of information about the function of law in non-elite circles. Caesar, later Sir Julius and master of the rolls, was extraordinary master (1591) and ordinary master (1596) of this court. Based on a notebook compiled around 1600, Caesar's study is the fundamental contemporary account of its work. The first edition was issued twice. Our copy matches the collation in Pollard and Redgrave and Sweet & Maxwell (which conjectures 1592 as the imprint date).

Rudella 1695?, reliure en parchemin souple d?époque, qqs taches brun, une lanière. Titre ms. au dos. Un des traités les plus populaires sur la vie à la campagne au 16e s., et édité tout au long du 17e et 18e siècle. Le premier ouvrage de ce type publié en langue française. Première édition publiée par Charles Estienne en latin à Paris en 1554, ouvrage ensuite traduit en français et augmenté par son beau-fils Jean Libault en 1564, depuis 1570 publié avec le traité de Clamorgan sur la chasse du loup. Au moment de la présente édition de 1597, l?ouvrage était devenu un véritable manuel encyclopédique sur l?économie du ménage à la campagne. Vers la fin du 16e et au 17e s. les gravures sur bois deviennent également plus abondantes. Surtout les 14 gravures sur la chasse du loup sont intéressantes. Avec des chapitres supplémentaires sur les différentes chasses entre autres celle au faucon. A la fin un traité supplémentaire sur les calculs de tonnage pour les tonneaux de vins.One of the most popular works on country-housekeeping of the 16th century, and still published during the whole 17th & 18th century, being the first of its kind published in French. First published by Charles Estienne in Latin, at Paris in 1554, then translated in French, and enlarged by Estienne?s son-in-law Jean Liebault, at Paris in 1564, and since 1570 published with Clamorgan?s treatise on wolf-hunting added to it. The work by now (1597) was growing into an encyclopedic practical manual on domestic economy of life in the country. The work also became more richly illustrated during the end of the 16th & 17th century, and especially the 14 large woodcut illustrations on wolf-hunting are very interesting. Extra chapters are added on the hunting of all sorts of games, including falconry. At the end the extra treatise on the calculation of tonnage is added, considered useful for the measuring of wine-casks.Wolf hunting: Woodcut device on title-page, woodcut headpiece and initial letters, 14 large woodcut illustrations in text. 43 pp. Later edition of this popular work on wolf hunting. Clamorgan first offers observations drawn from sources as diverse as Aristotle and Olaus Magnus on the natural history of wolves and the medicinal uses of preparations derived from wolf excrement and body parts. Later chapters address such topics as training bloodhounds for the hunt, how to distinguish wolf tracks from dog tracks, and various strategies for capturing wolves using traps, nets, and decoys. Each method is illustrated by one or more nearly full-page woodcuts. The chasse du loup was first printed in 1566 (Paris: J. Du Puys) to accompany the third edition of Charles Estienne?s L?agriculture et maison rustique. Both works were frequently reprinted in the seventeenth century and are often found bound together, though each also seems to have been published separately. An earlier Gabriel Cartier edition appeared in 1584, without place of publication. The 14 woodcuts in this edition are free copies of those in the earlier Du Puys editions. Clamorgan served in the French navy for nearly 50 years. Although La chasse du loup is his only published work, he also wrote an unpublished treatise on navigation and shipbuilding.

The present work, known as the Syntagmatis, consists of three separately published volumes (volume 1 and 2 second issue), each with a different title. In the first two volumes Libavius elaborates on his experiments in chemistry (illustrated with many woodcut illustrations of various sorts of glassware, vessels and other devices), followed by comments on the writings of Palmarius, Croll, Quercetanus (Duchesne) and many others. In the third volume, the appendix, he mentions controversies with Paracelsus, the Rosecrucians, Henning Scheunemann and Nicolas Guibert.Browned throughout and some small imperfections; boards slightly bowed.

Based on a notebook compiled around 1600, Caesar's study is the fundamental contemporary account of its work. The first edition was issued twice. Our copy matches the collation in Pollard and Redgrave and Sweet & Maxwell (which conjectures 1592 as the imprint date). We located copies identical to ours at Exeter College, Oxford, the Middle Temple Library and the Folger Library. The second issue has a title page with the title stated above in square brackets, five leaves of preliminaries and an errata leaf. Both issues are rare. OCLC does not list our issue and only 4 copies of the other issue (Bavarian State Library, Cambridge University, Huntington, Yale). Our issue is not in Beale or the English Short-Title Catalogue.

        The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes.

      London, John Norton, 1597 - Folio (320 x 205 mm), pp [xx] 1392 [72], with engraved title, woodcut coat-of-arms on verso of title, engraved portrait of Gerarde, and 2144 woodcuts in text; engraved title with some very faint marginal dampstaining, first leaf of dedication with a little dustsoiling, a few rust or other spots in text, last gathering of index with frayed margins and corners strengthened, generally a very fresh, crisp, clean copy in a very attractive binding of early eighteenth-century speckled calf, spine in six compartments with gilt panels featuring crowns, red morocco label, joints a bit rubbed. £14,500First edition of the most famous English herbal, and a very fine copy. This work is usually found in poor state, especially the title engraving, which is often damaged or badly rubbed. The title in this copy is in an excellent impression.The history of the production of Gerarde's Herball has not been entirely elucidated. It seems that the publisher had commissioned Dr. Robert Priest to translate into English Dodoens' Historiae pemptades sex (1583), but that Priest died before completing the task. Gerarde was then brought in, and finished the translation, while changing the system of classification from that of Dodoens (a pharmacological one) to that of Lobel (an attempt at a natural system), and adding notes and observations of his own. The woodcuts were hired from the Frankfurt publisher of Tabernaemontanus, and were somewhat haphazardly wedded to the text. At one point Norton brought in Lobel to correct some of Gerarde's more egregious errors (Lobel claimed to have discovered over 1000). Gerarde's own contribution may be no more than his appealing Elizabethan prose style and his description of the 'Virginian potato'. One of the few woodcuts that is original to this work is in fact the first illustration of the potato.The Tabernaemontanus cuts were based on the images of Fuchs, Brunfels, Mattioli, and the Flemish botanists published by Plantin (Dodoens, L'Écluse, et al). Interestingly, the portrait of Gerarde, who is depicted aged 53 holding a potato flower, is dated 1598. Both the engraved title and the portrait are by William Rogers, and the portrait exists both in an unsigned state, and signed 'WR' as here. I have heard of two copies in which the portrait, which should be printed on the verso of the second page of Gerarde's address to the reader, is absent, the page being blank.Henrey 154; Hunt 175; Johnston 143; Stafleu and Cowan 1993; STC 11750

'Spach's compilation of gynecological and obstetrical texts was the largest such collection of its day, reprinting most of the works collected in Caspar Wolff's Volumen gynaeciorum and Gaspard Bauhin's Gynaeciorum sive de mulierum affectibus (1586-88), and adding several other treatises. The collection includes works by Plater (whose anatomy of the female genitalia heads the collection), Moschion, Le Boë, Montanus, Paré and many others. Some of the anatomical woodcuts are taken from Vesalius's Fabrica, in particular his "masculinized" representation of the female reproductive organs; also illustrated are various surgical and gynecological instruments, including a speculum' (Norman catalogue).Adams S1517; Cutter and Viets pp 29-30; Durling 2254; Garrison and Morton 6013; Norman 1977 (this copy); Waller 9096; Wellcome 6030

        LE OPERAZIONI DEL COMPASSO GEOMETRICO ET MILITARE DI GALILEO GALILEI NOBIL FIORENTINO. Lettor delle Matematiche nello Studio di Padova. Terza edizione.

      Opera dedicata a Antonio Maria Orsato. Cm.21,6x16. Pg.(8), 80. Legatura in piena pergamena semirigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Al frontespizio marca calcografica raffigurante Minerva che tende il braccio destro verso un albero e con il sinistro sostiene uno scudo. Nella parte sinistra motto su nastro: "Pacis opus". Fuori testo la celebre carta raffigurante il compasso. Cartigli e capilettera incisi. Svariate figure nel testo. "Il compasso proporzionale o di proporzione è stato un importante strumento utilizzato dalla fine del XVI secolo sino al XIX che può essere considerato «... il primo vero strumento di calcolo della storia dell' umanità, dall'apparenza semplice, e tuttavia in grado di eseguire operazioni matematiche e geometriche complesse» (Vergara Caffarelli). Galilei descrisse lo strumento, da lui progettato e fatto costruire intorno al 1597 dal suo operaio Marcantonio Mazzoleni, nell'opuscolo "Le operazioni del compasso geometrico et militare", pubblicato a Padova nel 1606 e dedicato a Cosimo II. Il compasso geometrico militare, come lo chiamò Galilei, permetteva di compiere in modo più rapido e semplice complesse operazioni matematiche e geometriche per usi civili e militari. Col suo compasso si misuravano distanze, altezze, profondità e pendenze; si calcolava la balistica dei tiri d'artiglieria; si poteva ridisegnare una mappa con una scala diversa; si calcolavano cambi di monete e interessi. Lo strumento, a metà tra il goniometro e il regolo calcolatore consiste di due righelli di uguale lunghezza uniti su un disco (nocella) come cerniera che ne permette l'apertura a compasso. Su i due righelli sono riportate sette scale proporzionali (aritmetiche, geometriche, stereometriche, tetragoniche, poligrafiche, scala dei metalli e linee aggiunte) e un arco di cerchio graduato munito di scala dei gradi, scala delle pendenze e quadrato delle ombre. Lo strumento si fondava teoreticamente sulla proporzionalità tra i lati omologhi di due triangoli dimostrata da Euclide" (da wikipedia).

Title and each page of text within border of type-ornaments. Vellum, repaired. Illustrated. This work was printed by a variety of printers using the same woodcuts and ornaments. Although a good number of editions were printed in the sixteenth century, most did not survive their use in schools. The Czech National Library identifies a copy at the "Library of the ASCR - Praha, " with the same date and pagination, but without a printer's name. The Italian National Union Catalogue does not locate a copy, but it is conceivable that the 'Biblioteca Comunale Lorenzo Leonj, in Todi may have a copy.
