XI, p.604ff; Nissen ZBI 3514; Garrison-Morton 285; Osler 918; Mortimer Italian 448; Wellcome 5625. - RARE SECOND EDITION of the first book devoted exclusively to the anatomy of an animal, and the first monograph on horses. "Besides being one of the foundation-stones of modern veterinary medicine, it contains a description of the lesser circulation. The admirable woodcuts were inspired by those in Vesalius' De humani corporis fabrica (1543)" (Garrison-Morton). "The fine engravings and fluent text detail the anatomy and physiology of the horse, with the eye, ear, intestines, kidneys and bladder being especially well treated. The heart and the lesser circulation are described but it is stated that left ventricle sent blood and vital spirits to all parts of the body but the lung (which prompted the Veterinary School in Bologna to honor Ruini with a tablet proclaiming him the discoverer of the circulation!) In exactness and beauty of treatment, Ruini's book has been favorably compared to Vesalius' treatment of man (Dibner 186). "One of the finest achievements of the heroic age of anatomy. its truly magnificent figures need not fear comparison with those of Vesalius or Eustachius" (C. Singer, The Evolution of Anatomy, p.153). Of the woodcuts Cole writes "it is impossible to avoid the conclusion that Ruini's work is the direct and logical outcome of the Vesalian tradition, since it resembles, if it does not equal, the masterpiece of the founder of anatomy in almost every detail" (Cole, Hist. of Comparative Anatomy, pp.83-97). The first part deals with horse anatomy, the second part with horse diseases.The second edition was issued one year after the first and differs only in title-page and name of dedicee. It is even rarer than the first edition with only two complete copies recorded at auction in the past 20 years. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Hippostologie, c'est a dire, discours des os du cheval.

      Mamert Patisson, Paris 1599 - PIONEERING ANATOMY OF THE HORSE IN FRENCH FIRST EDITION. 4to. ff. (iv), 23, (i). a? A-F? Roman letter, preface in Italic, some Greek. Foliated woodcut initials and headpieces, engraved architectural title page, with royal arms of Henry IV at head, with his Monogram H at sides, horses at base of columns, six large engravings in text, plus one full page of the complete horse skeleton, early manuscript shelf mark on fly. Light age yellowing, very light marginal spotting, the odd mark or spot. A very good copy, crisp clean on thick paper and with good margins, excellent impressions of the plates, in contemporary vellum over thin paste boards, remains of ties. Extremely rare and important first, and only, edition of this treatise on the anatomy of the horse, beautifully illustrated with seven exceptional engraved plates by J de Weert, some of the finest and most accurate engravings of horse anatomy of the C16th. This work describes the anatomy of the horse in great detail and with great rigor. The engravings are of such detail that it is even possible to make out the joints of the skull, which are abundantly described. Remarkably it was the first work dealing specifically with horse anatomy published in France; the only other to touch on the subject was the translation into French of Vegetius’ work on horses of 1563, which, whilst dealing with the horse in general, barely touched on its anatomy, not even distinguishing between bovine and equine. Heroard wrote the work in 1579 and the manuscript was preserved in the library of Château de Chantilly, but it was not published until 1599, a year after the publication in Italy of Carlo Runi’s celebrated ‘L’Anatomia del Cavallo’. Heroard was not aware of Runi’s work. Heroard, a doctor, was given the title of ‘Médecin en l’Art vétérinaire’ in 1574, the first in France, before becoming physician to Charles IX. He most probably owed this role to the passion that Charles IX had for hunting and horses, and the king's determination to raise the standard of veterinary medicine, particularly in respect to horses. In his dedication to Henry IV, Heroard justifies his project by arguing for the benefits of presenting farriers with a horse anatomy written in French that they would be able to understand. He also implies Charles IX's instigation who took "un singulier plaisir à ce qui est de l’art Vétérinaire, duquel le subject principal est le corps du Cheval". It is probable that the work was intended as the forerunner to a much larger treatise on the anatomy of the horse or a full ‘Traite de tout l’art Veterinaire’ that never appeared. Heroard’s training was in medicine, and wherever applicable he used the language of human anatomy to describe that of the horse. Forced to invent new terms that were specific to the horse, he initiated the vocabulary of equine anatomy in France. The work was overshadowed by Runi’s anatomy and later ignored. However its importance in the history of veterinary science has now been recognized. "L’étude approfondie de l’Hippostologie d’Héroard montre que celui-ci mérite une place de choix dans l’histoire de l’anatomie vétérinaire. Il est le premier à avoir décrit un squelette entier de cheval en se fondant sur l’étude directe sur squelette. Il fut le premier à donner aux os du cheval des noms français raisonnés." Aurélien Jeandel "Jean Herouard premiere ‘Veterinaire Francais’. A very good copy of this beautifully illustrated and important work. BM STC Fr. C16th p. 223. Renouard 192:1. Mortimer French 273.

        MILICIA Y DESCRIPCION DE LAS INDIAS

      Madrid, 1599. Small quarto. Early mottled calf, spine gilt, leather label. Minor wear to hinges and corners. Some soiling and wear on lower corners of last few index pages. Earlier library ink stamps. Very good. One of the most important Spanish works on the Indies and New World military organization in the 16th century. It is a tactical manual by a Spanish veteran of the colonial South American frontier and the brutal wars against rebellious native Americans, as well as a rich source of ethnographic and military detail. "The first manual of guerilla warfare ever published....he advocated for the Americas the creation of commando groups to carry out search-and-destroy missions deep within enemy territory for up to two years at a time" - Parker. This work served as both a guide to aid new arrivals in conquest, as well as a sometimes testy address to King Phillip II detailing Vargas Machuca's many services to the Crown, whom he felt never recognized him adequately for his service. The text is divided into four books, followed by a description of the Indies. The parts cover the following subjects: the qualities needed to lead, the preparation of soldiers and necessary materials, the duty of the soldier, and the settling of the land after conquest. It includes significant chapters on military medicine and natural history, though the real significance lies in the fact that "scattered throughout MILICIA INDIANA are unwitting fragments of indigenous and rural Spanish colonial history. Perhaps the main gap that this book helps to fill, if only partially, is the story of early and unconquered 'backcountry' New Granada" (Lane). Bernardo Vargas Machuca (ca. 1555-1622) was a Spanish soldier, born in Simancas. He took part in several campaigns in Old Granada and Italy before setting off for the Caribbean in 1578 to help chase down the famed pirate, Francis Drake. His first services in the New World are obscure, until he arrived in New Granada, present-day Colombia, in 1585, one of many re- conquistadors still hoping to find the golden city of El Dorado. While settled in New Granada he participated in many campaigns against rebellious natives, becoming known for his ruthless and quick-striking tactics, explained in this text. These included campaigns in present-day Peru and Bolivia, and Colombia. In 1595 he returned to Spain, hoping to capitalize on his service to obtain promotion. Despite his best efforts, including the publication of this book, Vargas Machuca was unable to secure an ENCOMIENDA or any other titles or appointments from King Phillip II. What positions he did manage to secure were in out-of-the-way locations relatively ignored by the Crown: one as paymaster of the three forts of Portobelo in Panama and later as governor of Margarita Island in the Caribbean. Both appointments were short-lived and ill-starred, and in the end, Vargas Machuca, both broke and indignant, made his way to court once again to seek another appointment. In keeping with his bad luck, he died suddenly in Madrid of an unknown illness, shortly after being appointed governor of Antioquia, one of New Granada's declining gold districts. The MILICIA INDIANA is thus a manual of Indian warfare, an appeal for promotion based on services, and a picture of the colonial New World at a time far less documented than the original conquest. The multiple bankruptcies of the Spanish Crown and the decline of bullion production from the Americas were leading the New World empire into a long, slow decline. It is this period of entropy, balanced by violent frontier conflict, that Vargas Machuca documents. The book is also a proposal: the Indian uprisings in colonial Chile, long a thorn in the side of the Spanish, had broken out again, and he hoped to be appointed governor-general there, to suppress the rebellion with the tactics described in the book. He did not get the appointment. Besides this book Vargas Machuca wrote COMPENDIO Y DOCTRINA NUEVA DE LA GINETA, SECRETOS Y ADVERTENCIAS DE ELLA, SENALES Y ENFRENAMIENTOS DE CABALLOS, SU CURACION Y BENEFICIO, a manual on horsemanship printed in Madrid in 1619; and DEFENSA DE LAS CONQUISTAS DE LAS INDIAS, an attack on Las Casas, which only survives in manuscript. This is the only copy of the present work to appear for sale since a copy sold at auction in 1967; Maggs asked £250 for a copy in 1927. As is usually the case, the final leaf with printing ornament is lacking, as is the portrait. A rare and interesting work on early warfare tactics against the natives of South America. Accompanied by the modern scholarly translation.

Cast in dialogue form, it demonstrates that the common law was the oldest and most reasonable legal system in Europe. It also compares the common and Roman systems and extols the superiority of a constitutionally limited monarch to an absolute monarch. De Laudibus was written around 1470 and first published (in Latin) in 1537. "Fortescue was a favorite among the old lawyers, and will be read with profit in modern times by those who are interested in the origin and progress of the Common Law" (Marvin). This was the first work to examine trial by jury and the Inns of Court at length. Marvin, Legal Bibliography 321. Beale, A Bibliography of Early English Law Books T359.

        The First Part of the Life and Raigne of King Henrie IIII. Extending to the end of the first yeare of his raigne

      London : John Wolfe, 1599 A good copy of this scarce work. The first edition of this work was published in 1599, and incurred the anger of Queen Elizabeth I, who had the work assessed by Francis Bacon to establish treasonous intent. John Hayward was imprisoned and second edition copies were destroyed. It was republished with the original 1599 title page in 1629 and it is likely that this copy dates from 1629 because it was published without frontispiece (which features in the late 1630's edition) and has an inverted 'e' in Teucer on the page following the title page. The half leather binding has marbled boards which look contemporary. The spine and leather corners are very worn but the book is currently sound. Page edges red. Internally: a neat ink handwritten history of the work has been written on the front pastedown (possibly 1700-1800's); free endpaper clean; title page; page entitled 'Illustrissimo & honoratissimo' (dedication to the Earl of Essex) with decorative initial capital; page of 'Faultes escaped in the Printing'; 'AP to the Reader' 4pp with decorative headpiece and initial capital; Text pp 1- 149 with decorative headpiece and tailpiece and initial capital; colophon; blank with small ink note to top - R644; free endpaper. Text is generally in good to very good condition - there is the occasional small mark and very light toning to paper. Size 18.6 x 14.5 cm. A nice copy.

      Venice, Gaspare Bindoni, 1599 - 2 vols in one, folio (338 x 230 mm), pp. [xxxvi] 295; [iv, including blank] 386 [30, including terminal blank], woodcut devices on titles, titles printed in red and black, with 64 full-page woodcut illustrations, manuscript correction on m1 recto (vol one) as in Mortimer; wormhole in blank margin of several gatherings, only occasionally touching a letter, a few gatherings very slightly browned, overall a very fresh, crisp, unpressed copy in contemporary parchment over pasteboards, spine worn. £30,000First edition, second issue, one of the great rarities in the history of medicine and zoology. It is the first book devoted exclusively to the anatomy of an animal, and is considered comparable to Vesalius' Fabrica, the illustrations of which strongly influenced those of Ruini. 'In thoroughness of treatment and beauty of illustration, Ruini's study of the horse set a pattern in zoological anatomy' (Dibner).'Occupying an isolated position is the splendid monograph on the Anatomy of the horse by Carlo Ruini of Bologna, published posthumously in 1599. It is the product not of a physician, nor of a professional veterinary surgeon, but of a lawyer. Nevertheless, it does for equine Anatomy a similar service to that which the Fabrica of Vesalius had done for human Anatomy; its truly magnificent figures need not fear comparison with those of Vesalius and of Eustachius, by the side of which they may be placed. The text is no less admirable than the figures; the description of the eye, ear, intestines, kidneys, and bladder being especially good. Ruini gives a clear account of the structure of the heart and of the mechanism of the pulmonary circulation. His book is the first devoted to the anatomy of an animal, and is one of the finest achievements of the heroic age of Anatomy' (Singer, The evolution of anatomy, p 153, with three plates reproduced).'At the hands of Ruini the subject of equine anatomy jumped at a single bound from the blackest ignorance to relative perfection, the degree of which it is difficult to exaggerate' (Sir Frederick Smith, The early history of veterinary literature).A total of 15 editions appeared between 1598 and 1769; the original blocks were only used for this first, and were then recut for the 1618 and subsequent editions. This issue differs from the first in having cancel titles dated 1599 and cancel dedication leaf. The remainder comprises the sheets of the Bologna 1598 printing. Bindoni changed the dedicatée from Cardinal Aldobrandini to César, Duke of Vendôme, natural son of Henri IV.Provenance: ownership inscription (crossed out) on title dated 1634; pencil annotation on front pastedown optimistically attributing the illustrations to Titian or Leonardo!Bird 2111; Dibner 186; Durling 3991 (all this issue); Garrison and Morton 285; Mortimer 448; Norman 1858; Cole, History of comparative anatomy p 83 et seq.

      Louvain, Gerardus Rivius, 1599.. circa 21 x 16,4 cm. 10 ff., 101 pp., 7 ff.; 102-374 (recte 393) pp, 9 ff. Contemporary full calf with richly gilt spine and gilt armorial supralibros on both covers. Adams D-242; Caillet no 2967; De Bakker-S. II-1898. Rare second edition of one of the most influential works on magic, demons and witchcraft and their repression at the end of the 16th century. The Jesuit, Martin Delrio (1561-1608) took part as a judge in the dreadful "Bloedraad" (Blood Council) created by the Duke of Alba in the Netherlands to impose Catholicism and watch over the right execution of religious duties. Delrio was well informed about occult sciences and supposed witchcraft as part of his profession was to establish criteria by which to decide if an individual accused of necromancy or black magic was guilty. - This is the first volume only, containing the books 1 and 2. - From the famous library of the French historian, politician and great bibliophile Jacques-Auguste de Thou (1553-1617) with his arms and those of his first wife Marie Barbancon on both covers. The spine shows the combined initials "I A" with "M" for Jacques-Auguste and Marie. - Some browning, only few quires heavier browned, mostly clean, just little spotting. Binding rubbed and apparently with few, older, well executed repairs to the covers that were probably rubbed and are coloured in few parts. Very decorative.

        Philostrate de la vie d’Apollonius Thianeen par B. de Vigenere, Bourbonnois.

      Chez Abel L’Angellier, Paris 1599 - First Blaise de Vigenère edition. Small 4to. ff. [4], 299. With an engraved vignette profile of Apollonius of Tyana on the title page. Text is decorated with woodcut initials. Bound in original full period calf with a gilt oval medallion center piece stamped on both front and rear covers. Re-backed preserving large portions of the original spine. The binding is well rubbed and shows lumpiness, discoloration and general wear. The leather contains areas of modern restoration and patching; the corner tips of the boards are carefully repaired. The gilt border lines (running along the edges of the front and rear covers) are also partially restored. Interior pages are generally clean but show occasional light spotting and toning; some periodic minor worming in the lower and inner margins is also present. The inside front cover displays the book plate of bibliographer Roger de Quiriele (1848-1924). This is the first French edition of Flavius Philostratus’s biography of Apollonius of Tyana, a first century CE neo-Pythagorean philosopher and wandering mystic. Apollonius’s extensive travels to Nineveh, Babylon and India are described as well as his studies with the Magi and the Brahmans. Apollonius was renowned for his prophesying and healing powers. In Rome he supposedly raised the body of a noble woman from the dead. Many supernatural stories are recorded concerning wizards, demons and spirits – i.e. in Corinth Apollonius saved his friend Menippus from marrying a demoness (empusa). Utilizing surviving sources, Philostratus produced his work at the request of Julia, wife to the Roman emperor Septimius Severus (ruled 193-211 ce). Although Apollonius is mentioned by several ancient authors, Philostratus’s work remains the only surviving full biography. Translated from the Greek (into French) by Blaise de Vigenère (1523-1596), a French diplomat, cryptographer, alchemist and translator. Uncommon edition. [BM STC French, p. 350; Cioranesco 21751; Not in Adams. Caillet, De Guaita, Dorbon-Aine and Schweiger only mention the 1611 edition]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
