PLAT, Sir Hugh.
London: Peter Short dwelling at the signe of the Starre on Bredstreet-hill, 1603. First edition, the superb Macclesfield copy bound in contemporary vellum gilt, of this important work by “Elizabethan London's most curious student of nature” (Harkness, p. 8), which first introduced the process of making coke from coal, a technological innovation that proved crucial in the industrial revolution. This is an extremely rare book – indeed, this is probably the only surviving perfect copy (see below). “The technique of making coke from coal [was] suggested in 1603 by Hugh Plat as a process similar to making charcoal from wood” (Osborne, p. 234). “Coke's superior crushing strength allowed blast furnaces to become taller and larger. The ensuing availability of inexpensive iron was one of the factors leading to the industrial revolution” (Newgera, p. 89). “Plat's approach to his many collaborators and the natural knowledge they shared with him was rigorous, and prefigures in significant ways … the scientific method” (Harkness, p. 214). “Plat's work should not be interpreted as a weak anticipation of [Francis] Bacon but as a very strong stimulus to Bacon's philosophy of science” (Conner, p. 300). ESTC locates copies at British Library [lacks A1], Bodleian [lacks A1, ex Juel-Jensen], Birmingham University [lacks A1]; Marsh's Library Dublin [missing], Glasgow University [apparently lacking one leaf – presumably A1 - as pagination is given as 30 pp.], Folger [sheet A frayed, affecting title & text; ex Sion College], Huntington [lacks A1]; no other copy located in auction records.

1603. Antique print, titled: 'Novissima et Accuratissima Totius Americae Descriptio per I. Danckerts.' - Striking map of America. California is shown as an island, based upon Sanson's model. The Great Lakes are shown with an open western coastline. No Northwestern Coast beyond 40 degrees. The seven cities of Cibola appear in the Southwestern US. The conception of the Mississippi River is still very vague and pushed far west of its true mouth. The large lake in the Southeastern US first seen on Le Moyne's map is still present. South America retains its excessively wide format. A hopeful extension from Button's Bay is shown portending a possible Northwest Passage. The map is richly embellished with two cartouches, 9 sailing vessels and elaborate vignettes of native villages, native warriors and indigenous animals. While the Visscher and De Wit editions of this map appear on the market with some frequency, this Danckerts edition is quite scarce.

PARACELSUS (AUREOLI PHILIPPI THEOPHRASTI BOMBASTUS VON HOHENHEIM)
Straßburg; in Verlegung Lazari Zetzners Buchhändler, 1603. in 4° (33 x 21 cm. ca.); pp. (8), 691, (13); solida leg. in mezza pergamena con piatti marmorizzati; illustrato con 62 xilogr. e numerosi simboli e sigilli astrologici. Rara e non comune edizione sulla magia e l'alchimia del noto medico svizzero. Paracelso (1493 - 1541), alchimista, astrologo e medico, fu una delle figure più rappresentative del Rinascimento; si laureò all'Università di Ferrara. Personaggio controverso e controtendenza (dal suo nome Bombastus è derivato in inglese l'aggettivo bombastic, che indica una persona piena di sé ed arrogante). Fu il primo a raccomandare l'uso di sostanze minerali e di prodotti chimici per la cura delle malattie dell'uomo diversamente da quanto esposto nelle precedenti dottrine dove ci si limitava all'uso di piante ed estratti vegetali. La maggior parte delle opere fu dettata al suo pupillo prediletto, Johannes Oporinus, il quale si occupò di pubblicarle dopo la morte dell'autore

POMODORO GIOVANNI.
Appresso Giovanni Martinelli. In-folio (cm. 334), cc. (57). Con bel frontespizio interamente figurato e molte tavole incise in rame a piena pagina. Legatura strettamente coeva in piena pergamena floscia. Esemplare con qualche gora chiara marginale, una firma ms. di possesso al margine basso del frontespizio, perraltro esemplare piuttosto genuino e ben conservato. Prima edizione, seconda tiratura, di questo trattato di geometria applicata alla scienza militare, scritto dal matematico e astronomo veneziano Pomodoro e poi, su istanza del di lui fratello, completato e riveduto dallo Scala. Ancorché il frontespizio rechi la data del 1603, il volume fu stampato nel 1599 ed è una cinquecentina; la presente è semplicemente un'emissione con nuovo frontespizio dell'edizione originale. Cfr. Olschki: "C'est l'édition originale de 1599 avec un nouveau titre - frontispice et une nouvelle dédicace"; Riccardi: I, 300: "La geometria pratica del Pomodoro con le aggiunte dello Scala è un trattato di agrimensura che per cognizioni topometriche e per esattezza di figure rappresentanti gli oggetti e gli strumenti di misurazione, trovo assai ben fatto pel tempo in cui venne la prima volta pubblicato".

BOSSCHE, Willem vanden.
, . . Krivatsy 1603; Nissen, ZBI 481; STCV (5 copies). Rare first and only edition of a well-illustrated handbook on medicinal uses of animals and animal products, by Willem vanden Bossche in Dendermonde (East Flanders). The wild and domesticated animals are arranged in four sections: birds and other winged animals (including a bat, eagle, falcon, vulture, owls, swan, goose, peacock, pheasant and parrot), mammalian quadrupeds (including a camel, horse, lion, elephant), fish and other marine animals, edible and inedible (including an eel, turtle, snails, frogs, otter and beaver), and insects, arthropods, reptiles, worms, etc.. The lice are shown with their host scratching his head and the leeches in use for bloodletting on a woman's arm. The beaver looks rather like a wolf with a fish body for a tail. The woodcut of a hedgehog is reused to illustrate the sea urchin! Bossche gives a description of each animal, quoting sources from antiquity to the seventeenth century, and then discusses its medical uses.With owners' inscriptions, owner's stamp and an occasional marginal manuscript note. The woodblock of locusts is damaged in all copies we have seen. With one quire slightly browned, a water stain running into the text in 3 quires and an occasional marginal defect, but still in good condition. The binding is wrinkled with a few small holes and with only remains of the ties, but otherwise good. A fascinating medical-zoological work.

Fabricius, (Hieronymus) ab Aquapendente
Patavia [Padua]: Lorenzo Pasquati, 1603. First Edition (with the printing permission on p. 22).. Twentieth century three quarter tan leather.. Good. The margins of those pages with plates have been unevenly folded. Small portions of blank margins have been unevenly trimmed to facilitate folding on three plates. Generally a copy with good margins. The double page plate is close along the top horizontal margin as is plate four along the lower horizontal margin. There are two marginal tears with old repairs to the double page plate; at one point plate three has an old repair (paper flaw?) touching the engraved cross hatch shading at an extreme edge of the illustration but well within the margin. Plate five has a small old ink smudge to a blank portion of the plate. There is a 4 x 2 inch "crescent" of moderate damp mildew to the paper in the blank gutter at the base with an old repair to four leaves in the blank margin.. Folio. [2], 1 - 23, [1] pp.,with 7 full-page engraved text illustrations and one double-page illustration. Fabricius was one of William Harvey's teachers and credibly the inspiration for Harvey's conceiving his idea of the circulation of the blood (see the noted comment to Robert Boyle referred to in Grolier, Medicine, p. 104). The book offered here is the first publication of the discovery and demonstration of the valves in the veins; the investigation of which had been accomplished prior to Harvey's attendance at Padua (Fabricius claims to have noticed them in 1574 and demonstrated the fact in his lectures). Though Fabricius had re-discovered these valves … [Click Below for Full Description]

SUAREZ DE SAINTE-MARIE (Jacques), DUVAL (André)
1603. 2 ouvrages reliés en un volume in-8, plein vélin de l'époque à petits rabats, lanières de cuir conservées. Edition originale de ces deux ouvrages, réfutation des théories exposées par Pierre Du Moulin, pasteur de Charenton, dans 'Les eaux de Siloé pour éteindre le Purgatoire...' (1603) où il niait l'existence du purgatoire. La première réfutation est due à un franciscain portugais, Suarez, confesseur de Henri IV et Évêque de Séez, qui rencontra Du Moulin. Les titres témoignent de la passion qui animait les auteurs et de la violence de cette controverse. (Caillet, 10418 pour le premier. Desgraves, 'Ouvrages de controverse entre catholiques et protestants', n°543 et 503. Pannier, 'L'Eglise réformée de Paris sous Henri IV', p.215 et p. 237). Ex-libris anciens et côtes de société de franc-maçonnerie (petit cachet). Bel exemplaire, très frais, dans sa reliure d'origine.
