LIEBAUT (Jean)
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, Li … [Click Below for Full Description]

LANGHAM, William.
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. A practical medical encyclopaedia describing about 420 medicinal plants and their uses, intended primarily for poor people..

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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

GERARDE, John
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.First 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 di … [Click Below for Full Description]

First edition under Spach's editorship, an assembly of gynaecological texts, both classical and 'modern'. '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 [Attributes: First Edition]

GALILEI Galileo.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. .

Prima edizione di questa fondamentale opera, la prima dedicata completamente alla chirurgia plastica. Il trattato dell'eminente chirurgo bolognese, allievo di Cardano e Aldrovandi, fu così apprezzato che lo stesso anno apparve a Venezia un'edizione pirata del Maietti, e l'anno dopo una non autorizzata a Francoforte. Tuttavia, la tecnica chirurgica per ricostruire nasi, orecchie e labbra di persone sfigurate da ferite o malattie veneree venne osteggiata dai medici del tempo, sia per il timore di complicazioni - la fase postoperatoria durava circa due mesi - che per l'avversione della chiesa, che la considerava un'ingerenza con l'opera di Dio, per cui la pratica cadde in disuso e solo agli inizi dell'Ottocento rinacque l'interesse per la chirurgia plastica.

Imprinted at London: By Peter Short, 1597. 8vo. (18 cm), [6], 22; [7], 81; [3], 22; [9], 87, [1] leaves (the second part with folios numbered from 1-81, lacks the two folios numbered 10 & 11). 4 parts in one; black letter, general and part titles within pictorial woodcut border, 53 full-page woodcuts of horse bits, several other illustrations including 2 pages of horse shoes, contents leaf with notes in a contemporary hand on reverse. Parts 2-4 have special title pages, all dated 1597. Part 2 is an abridgment and adaptation of Federico Grisone's "Ordini di cavalcare." Other parts include The Art of Riding, The Order of Dieting of Horses, and The Order of Curing Horse Diseases. Front and rear cover detached, flyleaves missing, the signature of an early owner (David Bateson) appears on the title page. The title page has a 1 in. x 2 ½ in. chip on the lower front edge; A.ii is a trifle brittle and darkened on the front edge; there is a small stain on page 29 of The Order of Curing. The same page shows a marginal hand-written notation apparently describing an additional formula for treating ill horses. The verso of the last page shows another hand-written note which apparently prescribes a remedy or medicine for treating a horse bitten by a "mad dog." Despite the foregoing imperfections this is a very clean copy of an edition more rare than other 16th-century editions (of which there were 3: 1566, 1570 & 1593). A similar copy sold at auction in 2012 for fifty-nine hundred dollars.
