      I.C. Vterverivs ... collegit, & recensuit. H. Tambvrinvs in lucem edidit ... Cum indice copiosissimo. Bononiae, V. Benatius, 1616. Folio (350 x 238mm). pp. (8), 495, (33), with 1 elaborately engraved title, 13 (some full-page) woodcuts and 1 woodcut printer's device. Contemporary vellum, spine in 7 compartments with gilt lettering. First edition of this work on quadrupeds, which was published posthumously as many of his other works. The volume is devoted to 'solid-hooved' quadrupeds, such as horses, zebras, elephants, centaurs, etc. and features several fine woodcuts, many from drawings by Jacopo Ligozzi. Included among the illustrations are cuts of a unicorn horn and a remarkable one of petrified elephant's catarrh. "Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplacable cultural patrimony earns him a place among the fathers of modern science. Perhaps most importantly he was among the first to attempt to free the natural sciences from the stifling influence of the authority of textbooks, for which he substituted, as far as possible, direct study and observation of the animal, vegetable, and mineral worlds" (D.S.B. I, pp. 108-110). A crisp and attractively bound copy, engraved title with small old paper repair at outer corners.//Nissen ZBI, 72.

Written by the Thrice Noble, Illustrious, and Excellent Princess, Margaret, Duchess of Newcastle, His Wife.

      Printed by A. Maxwell. First edition.. Binding a little rubbed; a few minor stains and tiny flaws; a very good, large copy.. Wing N-853; Wither to Prior 151; NCBEL I, 2252. Folio, contemporary blind-ruled sheep, rebacked with later endpapers, gilt rules and lettering. The famous biography of William Cavendish (1616-1684), the Earl of Newcastle, by his famous literary wife, Margaret Lucas Cavendish (1623-1673), the first English woman to publish extensively. Cavendish’s biography was widely read and admired when first published, and its details and descriptions of the English Civil War and the Cavendishs’ life in exile in Europe have held up to historical scrutiny. Deletions in ink on two pages, but text legible; a neat manuscript correction to the name "Banaum" on page 60, which is also present in other copies and has been attributed to the author herself. Cavendish’s biography is occasionally accompanied by a portrait, but the portrait was engraved after this book was published and is not called for.

      Basel: Ludwig König, 1615; 1607; Oppenheim: Hieronymus Galler for the Heirs of Johann Theodor de Bry, 1614;, 1616. Second Edition of the first work, FIRST EDITION of the second and third works; First Latin Edition of the fourth work y. This is an important and fascinating collection of works from the man sometimes called the father of German surgery, Wilhelm Fabry von Hilden (1560-1634). Fabry was the first well-educated German surgeon and a prolific author, whose applied research (like that of his contemporary, Antoine Paré) transformed early modern medicine. Norman notes that "although he did not reject traditional humoral doctrine, Fabry was ahead of his time in his attempts to explain disease and injury in terms of localized physical causes." This volume begins with the second edition of the first published description of the contents (and their applications) of a medical field chest for military use. Although he never served in a military campaign, Fabry made numerous innovations in battlefield surgery, notably in amputation. He was the first to successfully amputate at the thigh as well as the first to recommend amputation significantly above the line of gangrene. The second item is the first work devoted to the study of burns; Fabry was the first to classify burn severity into three degrees, and to describe how different heat sources resulted in different types of burns. He also set forth the first reasonable treatments for burns that specified the regular cleaning and treating of blisters, loose bandaging, and how to deal with conglutination (a particular problem with severe burns to fingers). The third item, while not the first published work on gunshot wounds, sets out Fabry's revolutionary approach to treating such wounds. Unlike his contemporaries, Fabry correctly understood that the greatest threat from a bullet was severe bleeding and tissue trauma. The second priority was removal of foreign objects from the body (including bone splinters) without causing undue additional damage to the patient (many other surgeons advocated digging around until the bullet could be extracted). Fabry designed minimally invasive (and easily portable) tools to extract bullets and other objects as well as devices to allow wounds to heal from the inside out, so as not to trap infection deep inside the body. Finally, the fourth item is Fabry's important work on dysentery. A plague survivor himself, Fabry was a keen epidemiologist who witnessed several plague and dysentery outbreaks in Germany and Switzerland. Through observation and patient interviews, he realized that dysentery could have a variety of causes, requiring different treatments. He also recognized that many dysentery cases were transmittable and emphasized the need to keep patients isolated until symptoms abated. Considering the contents--medical chest, burns, gunshot wounds, dysentery--this collection could well have been assembled by or for a military field surgeon; it clearly anticipated the numerous editions of Fabry's collected works that started appearing in the mid-17th century and were reprinted and used as medical manuals until the end of the 18th century. The present works are all of considerable rarity in these first and early editions.. 165 x 102 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). 16 p.l., 674 (i.e. 676), [8] pp., [2] leaves (blank) (lacking three preliminary leaves of text); 8 p.l., 107, [1] pp., [2] leaves (blank); 77, [1] pp., [1] leaf (blank); 22, [2], 157, [11] pp. Four works bound in one volume. Second Edition of the first work, FIRST EDITION of the second and third works; First Latin Edition of the fourth work. 18th century stiff vellum with blind-tooled fillets on covers, flat spine with faded ink title (older repairs to hinges). With a total of 25 full-page and 16 smaller illustrations within text; first work: 18 full-page, three in text; second work: three full-page, three in text; third work: two full-page, eight in text; fourth work: two full-page, two in text. Title page of first work printed in red and black. Front pastedown with bookplate of Dr. Kohlrausch; verso of title page with two ink stamps; third work with occasional ink annotations in a contemporary hand. First work: Garrison-Morton 2142; Krivatsy 3857; VD17 23:239593U; Second work: Garrison-Morton 2245; Krivatsy 3850; VD17 23:279196H; Third work: Norman 753; Krivatsy 3858; VD17 12:193224F; Fourth work: Krivatsy 3852; VD17 23:293027V. Joints starting to crack at head and tail, but still strong, vellum lightly soiled, front cover with single wormhole, rear with two wormholes, creases to spine and a tiny closed tear at tail, but the binding entirely sound and not without appeal. Five leaves of first work with small tears at outside margin (no text affected), occasional light browning or foxing throughout (due to poor paper quality), but a pleasing copy of a book often found in rough shape. This is an important and fascinating collection of works from the man sometimes called the father of German surgery, Wilhelm Fabry von Hilden (1560-1634). Fabry was the first well-educated German surgeon and a prolific author, whose applied research (like that of his contemporary, Antoine Paré) transformed early modern medicine.

        De Laudibus Legum Angliae, Written By Sir Iohn Fortescue.

      1616 - First Selden Edition of Fortescue's De Laudibus Fortescue, Sir John [1394?-1476?] [Selden, John (1584-1654), Editor]. [Mulcaster, Robert, Translator and Editor]. De Laudibus Legum Angliae Writen by Sir Iohn Fortescue L. Ch. Iustice, and After L. Chancellor to K. Henry VI. Hereto are Ioind the Two Summes of Sir Ralph de Hengham L. Ch. Iustice to K. Edward I. Commonly Calld Hengham Magna, And Hengham Parva. Never Before Publisht. Notes Both on Fortescue and Hengham are Added. London: Printed [by Adam Islip] for the Companie of Stationers, 1616. [ix], 132, [3] ff.; 56, [12], 35, 34-159, [3] pp. Last leaf blank. Two parts, each with title page and individual pagination. First part in parallel columns; Latin with running English translation. Texts of Summes in Latin with notes in English. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Contemporary calf with later rebacking, blind rules to boards, blind fillets along joints, raised bands and gilt title to spine, corners mended, endpapers renewed, "F&H" in early hand to top-edge of text block. Some rubbing to extremities, a few minor nicks and scuffs to boards. Light toning to text, negligible faint dampstaining in places, side-notes on several leaves trimmed with minor loss to legibility. Brief early annotations to title page and a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. * First Selden edition. De Laudibus Legum Angliae, a history of English law, was written for the instruction of Edward, the young Prince of Wales. 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 monarchy. De Laudibus was written around 1470 and first printed in 1567. Selden's was the first critical edition of this work, perhaps the first critical editions of an early English legal work. Aside from their value to the elucidation of Fortescue's text, Selden's notes interrogate aspects of Fortescue's text and offer rich insights into jurisprudence and the nature of the English constitution. As noted by Christianson, his conclusions disputed "the concept of immemorial custom argued by [Sir John] Davies and the anachronistic historical interpretations displayed by [Sir Edward] Coke." It was reissued in 1660, 1672 and 1737 with [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Resolutionum criminalium Petri Caballi ... centuriae tres.

      Caballo (d. 1616) was a Florentine judge and legal writer who saw his "Resolutionum criminalium" achieve great acceptance upon publication in 1606 and as attested to by the several later editions in the 17th century. This dense work on criminal law begins with a title-page in red and black with type in a great variety of point sizes of roman and italic. The text is printed in double-column format and each "century" begins with a large woodcut headpiece and ends with a small woodcut tailpiece. This edition, "Hac quarta editione pluribus mendis expurgatae," has several very good indices of "arguments," words, and "things."

        A commentarie of ... Martin Luther upon the epistle of S. Paul to the Galathians.

      London: Richard Field, Small 4to (18 cm; 7"). [4], 296 ff.. 1616 Fourth edition in English of Luther's In epistolam Sancti Pauli ad Galatas commentarius, which first appeared for the English monoglots in 1575, with second and third editions in 1577 and 1602. The Epistle to the Galatians held a special place in Luther's heart and mind; he lectured on it in 1519 and also in 1523. It is widely reported that in his table talks he is recorded as saying: "The Epistle to the Galatians is my epistle. To it I am as it were in wedlock. It is my Katherine [i.e., the name of his wife]." Provenance: Ownership inscription of Bryan Tompson, 1735 (fol. 166r); also on A2r, undated, family name spelled "Thompson" and with notation of cost of book as 5/3. Late 19th- or early 20-century ownership inscription on front free endpaper of G.P. Hesketh, of Beltrami Cty., MN; later given (1907) to Dr. Charles Schwartz. 18th-century English speckled sheep, recently rebacked; late 19th- or early 20th-century endpapers. Title-page cut down close to text (supplied from a different copy?), mounted to restore page size and expose type on verso; leaf soiled. Top margins throughout closely cropped, costing the top line of text on five of the eight preliminary pages and the running heads and folio numbers on many (not all) text leaves; staining in portions in margins and sometimes into the text of the upper outer sixth of a leaf; longitudinal hole on fols. 259 to 262 costing three words total. Not a perfect, but a decent copy of a Lutheran mainstay in an edition not often found on the market.

        The Surveyor in Foure Bookes

      London: Printed by W.Stansby for W.Burre, 1616. Hardcover. Very good. First edition of "the first comprehensive English textbook on Survey" (Singer, History of Technology, III, p. 541). Folio, 28.25 cm x 18.5 cm. pp. [10], 157, 152-175, 172-181, 186-228 pp. Copper-engraved pictorial title-page (surveyors at work with theodolite and plane-table) by William Hole; portrait of the author as frontis, numerous woodcuts in the text, but lacking the portrait of Prince Charles. Leaf O3 is a cancel (as in other copies). Early calf boards (worn at corners) with sympathetic modern leather spine, text very clean. Bookplate of W.C. Mylne--almost certainly the engineer and architect William Chadwell Mylne (1781-1863), who came from a long line of masons, surveyors, and architects--on front pastedown. This influential textbook addressed the practical everyday needs of surveyors more realistically and technically than had been done before, emphasizing the importance of maintaining professional standards and placing surveying firmly among the mathematical sciences.The first two books deal with the elements of geometry, the third book describes surveying instruments and their application, and the fourth discusses legal and manorial issues.

        De Laudibus Legum Angliae, Written By Sir Iohn Fortescue...

      , 1616 1616. First Selden Edition of Fortescue's De Laudibus Fortescue, Sir John [1394?-1476?] [Selden, John (1584-1654), Editor]. [Mulcaster, Robert, Translator and Editor]. De Laudibus Legum Angliae Writen by Sir Iohn Fortescue L. Ch. Iustice, and After L. Chancellor to K. Henry VI. Hereto are Ioind the Two Summes of Sir Ralph de Hengham L. Ch. Iustice to K. Edward I. Commonly Calld Hengham Magna, And Hengham Parva. Never Before Publisht. Notes Both on Fortescue and Hengham are Added. London: Printed [by Adam Islip] for the Companie of Stationers, 1616. [ix], 132, [3] ff.; 56, [12], 35, 34-159, [3] pp. Last leaf blank. Two parts, each with title page and individual pagination. First part in parallel columns; Latin with running English translation. Texts of Summes in Latin with notes in English. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Contemporary calf with later rebacking, blind rules to boards, blind fillets along joints, raised bands and gilt title to spine, corners mended, endpapers renewed, "F&H" in early hand to top-edge of text block. Some rubbing to extremities, a few minor nicks and scuffs to boards. Light toning to text, negligible faint dampstaining in places, side-notes on several leaves trimmed with minor loss to legibility. Brief early annotations to title page and a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. * First Selden edition. De Laudibus Legum Angliae, a history of English law, was written for the instruction of Edward, the young Prince of Wales. 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 monarchy. De Laudibus was written around 1470 and first printed in 1567. Selden's was the first critical edition of this work, perhaps the first critical editions of an early English legal work. Aside from their value to the elucidation of Fortescue's text, Selden's notes interrogate aspects of Fortescue's text and offer rich insights into jurisprudence and the nature of the English constitution. As noted by Christianson, his conclusions disputed "the concept of immemorial custom argued by [Sir John] Davies and the anachronistic historical interpretations displayed by [Sir Edward] Coke." It was reissued in 1660, 1672 and 1737 with

        Opera graece et latine quae extant.

      Works of the second-century Greek theologian Clement of Alexandria (ca. 150-215), reissued from the 1616 Patius printing and here handsomely printed by the French Royal Press. This edition was apparently also issued with the title-page in a different state, sporting the imprint as "Apud Matthaeum Guillemot, via Iacobaea, sub signo Bibliothecae." Set forth is Heinsius's edition of the text, with Greek and Latin in parallel columns, additionally offering the earlier revisions and alternate readings by Friedrich Sylburg; the title-page is printed in red and black, with an impressive sailing ship publisher's device, while the main text pages are ornamented with head- and tailpieces and decorative capitals. Provenance: Title-page with inked inscription "J.D. Michaeli," presumably Orientalist, biblical scholar, and Göttingen professor Johann David Michaelis (1717-91). Later manuscript notes as below in the hand of the early 19th-century scholar August Neander; his library sold to the Colgate (Rochester Crozer) Divinity School, properly deaccessioned. Evidence of readership: Three pages completely covered in Neander's hand with annotations in Greek and Latin, tipped in at the front; pencilled marks of emphasis, inked underlining, and inked marginal annotations in what appear to be two different early hands.

Pergamino estilo antiguo. Falta la portada y 4 hojas al final (una en blanco). La fecha está sacada de la Tassa. Nuestra edición no es Palau 356374 : que es también Alcala 1616, y Juan Gracian, pero con 320 folios y sin el grabado, y corresponde mas bien al CCPB000051348-2 del Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico Español.

Según el CCPBE hay tres ediciones de 1612 (una de Madrid y dos de Lérida). Dos de 1613 (Madrid y Lérida). Una de 1614 (Bruselas) y dos de 1616, una en ejemplar única, sin indicación de lugar por falta de portada y la nuestra de Lérida (con 3 ejemplares, uno con falta de portada).

        The Workes of Benjamin Jonson

      London: William Stansby, 1616. Lacks initial blank as almost always, title-page laid down with some loss at the margins (engraved image being principally unaffected), preliminaries thumbed, intermittent water staining; margins a little smaller than usual yet overall a very good copy of a book typically encountered in poor condition.. Thick folio, recent full calf with crimson label lettered in gilt. First collected edition of the dramatic works and poems of the master playwright Ben Johnson, a milestone in literary history that forms a direct precedent to Shakespeare's first folio printed shortly afterwards in 1623. By publishing his plays in such an advanced format, Jonson elevated the role of dramatic arts from transitory entertainment to serious literature, as noted by the bibliographer H. L. Ford: 'It is noteworthy that no finer printed folio of plays was issued in that century, and it is the first printed in that size; the designation of them as 'Workes' occasioned considerable criticism amongst his fellows, but time has vindicated that they are such, rather than dramatic ephemera for a hungry stage.'Jonson's career was extraordinary even by the standards of his time. Born into humble circumstances he was a brilliant student but worked as a bricklayer before establishing a role in the theatre (John Aubrey depicts him reciting Homer with a trowel in hand). Jonson also served as a soldier in the British force sent to expel the Spanish from Holland in 1591, and narrowly escaped the gallows for murdering a fellow actor in a duel. Never a brilliant actor, Jonson was manifestly a poet and playwright who regularly upset the status quo; he suffered incarceration in the Tower under Queen Elizabeth although later enjoyed the patronage of her successor James I. In addition to the nine major plays, the folio edition preserves the full range of Jonson's writing, including the court masques that secured Jonson's reputation as a master dramatist amongst the Royal household, the Panegyre written for James I, short poems or epigrams, and a collection of longer verse titled The Forest. Jonson's folio constitutes a definitive text edited by its author, in stark contrast to Shakespeare's posthumous first folio that contains ample textual inconsistency generating centuries of scholarship.This book has been the subject of much bibliographic enquiry - attempts to assign priority to the various states have filled many idle hours but borne little fruit. The catalogue of the great Pforzheimer collection laments that 'the bibliographical variations of this book are bewildering and all attempts to simplify them into categories have not materially reduced the confusion'. It was certainly a much loved book, indeed Jonson enjoyed a reputation on par with Shakespeare throughout much of the seventeenth century and the condition of remaining copies reflects this fact. This copy lacks its front endpaper; the title-page, though it has lost its blank margins and is mounted on plain paper, is virtually complete. However, in his extensive census H. L. Ford confidently asserts that 'an original copy unrestored or unrepaired is so rare as to be practically non-existent... the engraved title and four preliminary and two last leaves are rarely in pristine state; the original blank preceding the title is also so rare that it is not considered essential to a perfect copy' (Collation of the Ben Jonson Folios, Oxford 1932). Accordingly, it is not unusual for the title and other preliminary leaves to be absent altogether, making this a most desirable example.
