After the death of J. Scaliger, to whose inner circle he belonged, he held the chair of Greek, from 1609 till 1647. He is best known for his edition of Aristotle's treatise on poetry (1611), which he studied in connexion with the 'Ars Poetica' of Horace. This edition is 'the only considerable contribution to the criticism and eludication of the work that was ever produced in the Netherlands. (.) In his pamphlet 'De tragoediae Constitutione', published in the same year (1611), he deals with all the essential points in Aristotle's treatise, giving proof that he has thoroughly imbided the author's spirit. (.) It was through this work that he became a centre of Aristotelian influence in Holland. His influence extended, in France, to Chaplain, and Balzac, to Racine and Corneille; in Germany to Opitz; and in England to Ben Jonson (.)'. (J.E. Sandys, 'A history of classical scholship, N.Y., 1964, vol. 2, p. 314) Heinsius was a representative of the great age of Neo-Latin in the Low Countries, which encompasses the 16th century, and a good part of the 17th century. Here the Anacreontic-Petrarcan love poetry in Latin was kept alive. (J. IJsewijn, 'Companion to Neo-Latin studies', vol. 1, Leuven 1990, p. 154). The first part of this collection of Heinsius' poetry opens with early work, the 3 books of Sylvae, followed by Hipponax, 3 books of Elegiae, and Monobiblos. Then Heinsius' Epigrams and some occasional poetry; 125 pages with Greek poems, inspired by Theocritus and the Anthologia Graeca. The part with Greek poems starts with 'Peplus' (Gown), a series of epigrams which Heinsius composed on Greek authors and philosophers. This part is followed by 40 p. of Greek poetry in Latin translation, 'Elegiarum iuvenilium reliquiae', and is concluded with the 'Liber adoptivus'. The second volume contains Heinsius' last long Latin poem 'De contemptu mortis' (1621). It is a didactic poem, the finest of its time, in 4 books, wherein arguments, Platonic, Stoic and Christian, are set forth which explain why man should not fear death) (Collation: Pagination sometimes confusing. *4, A-2G8 (Gathering P begins with p. 223, in stead of 225, i.e. doubling p. 223 & 224; gathering Q begins with 237 in stead of 239, i.e. doubling 237 & 238 dubbel). +4, A-L8, M4 (In gathering I the pagination 129 & 130 is skipped) (Photographs on request) 1000 gr

        Spieghel der eyghen-kennisse, ... in-gheknoopt Het conterfeytsel des wereldts, ...Brussels, Lambert de Grieck, 1643. 4to. With engraved title-page, engraved portrait of the author (after P. de Backer), both by Antoine van der Does ("AVD"), and 3 nearly full-page engraved illustrations in the text, probably by Van der Does. 18th-century vellum.

      Bibl. Belg I, p. 319; BCNI 9630; Funck, pp. 282-283; STCV (8 copies incl. 4 incomplete). First edition, in Flemish Dutch, of a didactic satire, mostly in verse, by the Flemish poet and lawyer Willem van der Borcht or Guilelmus a Castro (1621/22-1668) in Brussels, with elegies and epigrams alternating with prose passages. It allegorically presents a mirror of self-knowledge and knowledge of the world, intended to improve the faults of the age and show the foolishness and vanity of the world. The fine plates by Antoine van der Does, showing scenes of rich and frivolous society, are of interest for the costume and morals of the time. The "Toe-ghifte", an integral part of the edition, but with its own title-page on 2D1, represents the world as a capricious woman. The portrait shows Van der Borcht at age 21 with the motto "nosce te ipsum", and a 2-line verse by Ericus Puteanus below. The 3 illustrations show realistic genre scenes, influenced by Rubens. Half the copies listed by the STCV lack the portrait and/or the engraved title-page. One illustration was printed over a crease in the paper, leaving a white line through part of the scene. In very good condition, with a minor water stain in the head margin of the engraved title, just touching its border. Binding lacking ties, with 1 sewing support broken at the back hinge, slightly wrinkled and a bit dirty, but still good. First edition of a satire of society, with plates made for it by Antoine van der Does.

        Observations sur la structure des yeux de divers insectes, et sur la trompe des papillons, contenuës en deux lettres au R.P. Lamy, ... Lyon, Leonard Plaignard, 1706. 8vo. With 3 folding engraved plates with 16 figures (original-size and microscopic views), woodcut cipher-monogram (JC for Jean Caffin?) on title-page, woodcut head- and tailpieces, decorated initial letters, and cast fleurons. Contemporary French calf, richly gold-tooled spine.

      Blake, p. 365; BMC NH, p. 1621; Cole Library 1190; Hagen, p. 54; Horn & Schenkling 17511; for Puget and Lamy: NBG XLI, col. 177 & XXIX, cols. 298-300. First and only edition of well-illustrated observations on the structure of insect (and crayfish) eyes and a butterfly proboscis by a pioneer of French microscopy. It begins with two letters written by Puget to the Benedictine scientist François Lamy (1626-1711) in 1704, followed by 59 pages explaining the figures in the plates in great detail. The figures include original-size and microscopic (about 300x) views of the eyes of a crayfish, dragonfly and butterfly, as well as a butterfly proboscis and its interior structure.Although Robert Hooke had published his microscopic views of insects and other things in his 1665 Micrographia , little progress was made in the improvement of the microscope until the introduction of achromatic lenses in the mid-18th century. Puget (1629-1709), like Leeuwenhoek in Holland, therefore had to compensate for the limitations of his equipment with a keen sense of observation, insight and natural curiosity, experimenting, for example with a candle flame and other images reflected in the compound eyes. Unlike Leeuwenhoek, he came from a wealthy family and was able to acquire microscopes and devote his leisure time to scientific studies, and he helped to establish the Lyon Académie des Sciences. The present work forms his most important contribution to science.With some contemporary manuscript corrections. In very good condition, with only an occasional minor spot in the text and a few faint marginal water stains, not approaching the text. The binding is skilfully rebacked, with the original back-strip laid down. A pioneering work of microscopy and entomology, especially interesting for the microscopic views of compound eyes.

        Design for Home Savings: Bay Area Finance and First Federal in Santa Monica, CA

      Santa Monica, CA.: ca. 1960s. Watercolor painting. 15.5 x 40 inches. Design for the building at 1621 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA. Subsequently Continental Shop/ Nawab of India. Adam Arenson: "a delicately curving building at 1619-1621 Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica. The color logo tiles and the terrazzo floors being the best hints at this building's Mid-Century Modern past -- given that the inside spaces were long since gutted. Note also the alley-side view in the picture above: for a building not on a prominent corner, the marble siding stopped when the facade did. 1957, photo 2012 The tile logo letters show an attempt, contemporaneous to the Home Savings work, to find a quick, recognizable way to mark the business with a colorful, artistic icon -- closer to the style of abstracted corporate icons for franchise recognizability.

B00KLE0EG0 In Latin. 1621 first edition, three parts in one volume, Petrum & Ioannem Belleros [House of Peter and John Beller] / Hieronymum Verdussium [Verduss] (Antwerp, Belgium), 4 5/8 x 7 inches tall x 2 1/4 inches thick full leather bound, gilt lettering and design to spine, marbled endpapers, [22], 636, [4], 183, [39], 127, [1] 1 pp., complete.

Three works by three authors, all with separate title pages, all published together in 1621 and all relating to Thomas a Kempis (circa 1380-1471), presumed author of the immortal 'Imitation of Christ.' The works are: (1) 'The Chronicle of Windesheim,' by John Busch, a history of the Augustinian religious order - known as the Brethren of the Common Life - in what is now the Netherlands, of which both Kempis and Busch were contemporaneous members; (2) The Chronicle of Mt. St. Agnes, by Kempis, a history of the monastery, located near Zwolle, in which he served most of his long life as monk, priest, copyist and author; and (3) 'Vindiciae Kempenses,' a work by Jesuit hagiographer Heribert Rosweyde (1569-1629) regarding the dispute about Kempis' authorship of the Imitation, together with two brief biographies of Thomas Kempis (one anonymous and one by Rosweyde) and a biography of Thomas' older brother, John, also a priest/monk in the Brothers of the Common Life, as well as a brief life of Gobelini a Kempis, and finally a one-page, 1617 approbation by De Witte. All three publications, with the the exception of the Chronicle of Mount St. Agnes, which was published by Verduss of Antwerp, are from the celebrated House of Peter and John Beller of Antwerp. Note that this is a heavy book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~KMP~ The Brethren of the Common Life was a Roman Catholic pietist religious community founded in the Netherlands in the 14th century by Gerard Groote, formerly a successful and worldly educator who had had a religious experience and preached a life of simple devotion to Jesus Christ. .

        M. Val. Martialis Ex Museo Petri Scriverii

      Amsterdam: Apud Guihelm Ianssonium, 1621. Very good antiquarian condition. 32mo. (113 x 58 mm). 318 pp. including engraved title-page depicting cupids and satyrs. Contemporary Parisian binding by the Atelier Mace Ruette: red morocco elegantly gilt with superb assurance, centers inlaid with olive morocco, five raised bands on spine (beautifully rebacked), comb-marbled endpapers and pastedowns (marbling abraded inside front hinge; inscription on verso of front endpaper erased), ruled in red throughout, a.e.g. Fine contemporary Parisian binding, securely attributable to the Atelier Mace Ruette. Our example is gilt with the same tools and identical design as Esmerian (2nd sale) no. 8 (Smith, De Republica Anglorum, 1625) and No. 11 (Emmius, Graecorum Respublicae, 1632), both of which were printed by Elzevier, and bound by Ruette for H.-L. Habert de Montmort, Conseiller au Parlement de Paris. Mace Ruette (1584-1638) apprenticed to Dominique Salie and by 1606 he had opened his own shop. In 1629 he was appointed "administrateur de la Confrerie des libraires, imprimeurs et relieurs," which he served until 1634, at which time he succeeded Clovis Eve as "relieur ordinaire du Roi." Ruette was also a publisher of equal distinction, but he is best known as a binder who began experimenting with pointille tooling ca. 1620, a style of decoration that was to become a major feature of French bindings for decades. Upon Ruette's death in 1638 the post of "relieur du Roi" passed to his son Antoine. This volume has a very significant provenance: "Stanley 1813" (pencil inscription on first blank leaf), i.e. Col. Thomas Stanley (his sale, London, Evans, 30 April 1813, lot 195). Stanley (1749-1818) was an early and important English collector of bookbindings who was one of Roger Payne's main patrons. -- Purchased from the Stanley sale by W. Clark -- Chas. Bain Hoyt (leather armorial bookplate inside front cover). Hoyt (1889-1949), of New York City, was a great collector of Oriental pottery and porcelain, paintings, and prints; he was a major benefactor of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. -- Irving Halpern 1988 (pencil inscription on final blank).

        DE RE METALLICA. LIBRI XII. QUIBUS OFFICIA, INSTRUMENTA, MACHINAE, AC OMNIA DENIQUE AD METALLICAM SPECTANTIA...

      Basil: Ludovici Regis, 1621. Third Latin Edition. Hardcover. Very Good in a serviceable binding. Folio (8" x 12-1/2") bound in library buckram; irregularly paginated: [10], 502, [58] pages. Illustrated with 273 woodcuts, many full and half page, some signed with the monogram "RMD," and generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl.1525-1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring. Previously published in 1556 and 1561, this edition seems scarcer than either of the previous. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 79: "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times." Herbert Hoover, who first translated this book into English, described this title in his autobiography as "the first important attempt to assemble systematically in print the world-knowledge on mining, metallurgy, and industrial chemistry. It was the great textbook of those industries for two centuries and had dominated thought and practice all that time. In many mining regions and camps, including the Spanish South America, it was chained to the church altar and translated by the priest to the miners between religious services." The book combines a profound technical and financial knowledge of mining with an underlying interest in the health and daily routine of mine workers. The woodcut impressions are strong and dark. As customary with this title, there is browning throughout, occasionally heavy. Small piece of title page repaired with no loss of text or illustration; ink names of David Stuart dated 1771 and Joseph Robertson dated 1830 on title page. Library bookplate on front pastedown and small ink number on the title page illustration; no other library markings except for numbers on the spine. An important and richly illustrated title.

        Kocho ruien [A Library of Chinese Classics by Courtly Scholars]. By Shaoyu Jiang [in Japanese: Ko-Shogu]

      78 parts plus table of contents bound in 15 vols. (full collation supplied in the Hyde catalogue). Large 8vo (286 x 215 mm.), paper wrappers, new stitching. [Japan]: Chokuban or Chokuhan [privately published by the Emperor's order], 1621. First edition and a fine set of one of the very few surviving "imperial editions" printed with movable type in Japan. This enormous publication, by far the largest of the eight surviving "chokuhan" (imperial printings) and the only surviving "gen'na chokuhan" (imperial printing during the reign of Emperor Gomizunoo) is of very great rarity. The production of this large work was a very complex and difficult project, employing the recently imported technology of movable type from Korea. The author Sahoyu Jiang (active 1360-68), compiled this collection of the writings of Chinese courtly scholars. Encouraging the preservation of Chinese traditions long valued by aristocrats, Emperor Gomizunoo continued his father's project of printing volumes of literary classics with the present work, a collection of Confucian texts which were considered both an ethical and a literary legacy of the court. Today, this edition is the earliest record of the this collection as earlier Chinese printed editions are now lost. "The earliest surviving books printed [in Korea] with movable type date from the late fourteenth century…During the invasion of the Korean peninsula undertaken by Toyotomi Hideyoshi in the closing years of the sixteenth century…large numbers of printed books were looted, and printing type was removed from the Printing Office and taken to Japan…It appears that Korean type was immediately put to use to printed the text of the…Kobun kokyo (Classic of Filial Piety) in 1593, although no copies of this appear to have survived. In 1597, in the postface to another work printed in Japan with movable type, a monk who was present at Hideyoshi's headquarters acknowledged that typography in Japan had come from Korea. It was not clear whether any Korean printing artisans came to Japan as well as a result of the invasion, but in any even the impact on Japan of Korean typography, both technologically and intellectually, was far greater than that of the Jesuit Mission Press, principally because the imported Korean typography was much closer to the centres of power in Japan than the increasingly precarious Jesuit missions."-Kornicki, The Book in Japan, p. 129. Emperor Go-Yozei, who nominally ruled Japan from 1586 to 1611, "displayed great enthusiasm for the new process, and not content with the original type brought back from Korea, ordered a new set of wooden type to be made. This was engraved between 1597 and 1602, and the books printed from this new type are generically known as choku-han, or 'imperial printings.' Indeed 'imperial' is a fitting description of these works, for they are among the finest unillustrated books ever produced in Japan. Not only was the typeface larger, but the best-quality paper and the finest ink were used to achieve effect. Very few choku-han works were actually printed between 1597 and 1603 [actually he means 1621], and if we exclude the 1593 edition of Kobun kokyo, almost all the titles were copies of Chinese philosophical classics…One other choku-han is known to have been printed by order of Emperor Go-Mino-o in 1621 [the successor to Emperor Go-Yozei], and that is the Horuien [the present work], although one or two other titles were printed and have been lost. All these works are considerable examples of the printer's art and show how quickly the Japanese were able to make full and aesthetic use of movable type."-Chibbett, The History of Japanese Printing and Book Illustration, p. 69. At the time of the writing of the Hyde sale catalogue, it was believed that the present work was printed with copper type; the latest research has suggested that wooden type was used but there is no definitive conclusion. Minor worming, carefully repaired. From the Rokuoin Temple in Kyoto and the library of Donald and Mary Hyde (their sale, Christie's NYC, 7 October 1988, lot 87). Preserved in two boxes.

        Collection of the History of England

      Printed at London Cum Privilegio. 1621. Second Edition. Hardcover. 20th century three quarter sheep over marbled boards with contrasting spine label bearing gilt titles, spine ends and corners a little rubbed, imprimatur leaf present, title within ornate woodcut architectural border, title trimmed at outer edge to just within border, a few small marks or stains including a small burn hole to foredge margin of leaf C5 just touching a couple of letters; A4 B-T6 V3 (lacks final blank V4); STC 6249. Samuel Daniel (1562-1619) was a poet and historian whose family origins are somewhat obscure, although it is thought he was born in North Somerset. It is known that in the early 1580s he was educated at Oxford from where he left without taking a degree. His poetry appears in print from 1591 and by 1594 he was recognised as one of the foremost poets of his day. Spenser in 1595, in Colin Clout's Come Home Again, described him as surpassing everyone in sight, and Shakespeare had begun to borrow from him freely, especially for his narrative poems and sonnets. Daniel turned to writing history in prose much later in his career, although he had written epic historical poems. In 1612 he published a prose history of the Norman conquest, this work became the first part of his Collection of the History of England, the complete edition of which was published in 1618. The work is significant because of way in which Daniel broke free from the historical writing of the past, writing that had sought evidence of divine providence or to support a political orthodoxy. Daniel examined sources in detail and cited them for his reader, he studied history with a disinterested eye and reported his findings in lucid prose. He was perhaps the first modern historian and such was the success of this work that Daniel would be most widely remembered as a historian rather than as a poet. , Small folio, [10] 222 pp .

      - Mechelen, Hendrick Aye, 1621. Folio. [xxiv],327-lxii (= lxviii),[4] pp. Met gegraveerde titelpagina, gegraveerd acrosticon op Maximiliaen vander Gracht, 1 blad met muzieknoten, 16 platen met blazoenen, 3 dubbele platen van inkomsten, 1 tekstgravure, en een titelgravure in het tweede deel; tot besluit het drukkersvignet van Hendrick Iaey. Gemarmerd kalfsleren band, vergulde rug met vijf ribben, centraal bloemmotief op voor- en achterkant, in een kader van dubbele fileten met hoekfluerons, golvende bordures, vergulde hoekranden, snee blauw gemarmerd (hoekjes en onderkant van de rug zeer vakkundig gerestaureerd; latere groen marokijnen titelschild; lichte vlek op laatste blad van het hoofdwerk; vier ex-libris, van o.a. Isaac Meulman, en bibliografische vermelding ingeplakt op binnenkant voorplat) - EEN HEEL FRAAI EXEMPLAAR. ZUIDELIJKE EN NOORDELIJKE NEDERLANDEN VERENIGD IN HET LAATSTE LANDJUWEEL. De Mechelse Rederijkerskamer "De Peoene" had de rederijkers in Noord en Zuid uitgenodigd voor deelname en bijdragen aan dit 'blazoenfeest'. "Niet minder dan achtentwintig genootschappen en negen particulieren uit Brabant, Vlaanderen, Holland, Zeeland en het prinsbisdom Luik hebben met één of meer bijdragen op de uitnodigingskaart gereageerd; samen dongen zij met een drietal intreden, zestien blazoenen,een honderdtal refreinen en ongeveer evenveel liederen mee naar de uitgeloofde prijzen." (Van Vaek, p.75). Met 'const-rijke Blasoenen' werden op houten panelen geschilderde rebussen bedoeld die een vierregelige tekst uitbeeldden. Deze tekst is onder het blazoen afgedrukt. ("Door de afbeelding van de 16 rebusblazoenen met hun verklaring is 'De Schadt-Kiste' en handboek voor het oplossen van rederijkersrebussen geworden." (H.Meeus in Nederlandse Letteren in de Leuvense Universiteitsbibliotheek, p.66) De volgende rederijkerskamers deden mee: Maria-crans, Den Boeck en de Corenblom, alle uit Brussel; De Violier, De Goudtblome, Den Olyftack, alle uit Antwerpen; Den Vierighen Dooren, S.Catharina en De Jonghe Lauwerieren, alle drie uit 's-Hertogenbosch; De Ienette uit Lier, De Goudbloeme uit Vilvoorde, Christus ooghe uit Diest, Het Terwenbloetsel uit Aaarschot, De Ongheachten uit Halle, De Vlasbloem uit Helmont, De Ionghe Vreuchenden-Blomme uit Bergen-op-Zoom, De Heyblom uit Turnhout, Het Lindenbloemken uit Mol, De Bremblomme uit Geel, 't Heylich Groytselle uit Arendonk, De Heylighen Gheest uit Brugge, S. Barbara uit Assche, De Goudsbloem uit Gouda, De Balsemblom uit Haastrecht, De Wyngaert Rancken en De Witte Angieren, beide uit Haarlem; De Orangie Lely uit Leiden, De Neardusbloem uit Goes. De meeste prijzen werden volgens de 'Verclaringhe van 't geheel Iugement, waer ende wie de Prijsen by de onpartijdighe oordeelders zijn toegewesen' (p.lxx) toegekend aan de kamers in Antwerpen en Brussel. De dubbele platen tonen de intocht van de kamers Mariencrans uit Brussel, Goudt-Blom uit Antwerpen, Gout-Blomme uit Vilvoorde. Veel gedichten en liederen drukken aan het einde van het Twaalfjarig Bestand de hoop uit dat de vrede bewaard zal blijven, b.v. de Balsemblom uit Haastrecht: "Comt, Apolo, speelt, Mars, een liedt / Met u snaren gheluydt / Comt Iuno ende hem ghebiedt / Phaebus maeckt een besluyt / Tussen, Troyen, seer rijckelik / Ende Griecken practijckelijck / Wilt u hasten ghelijckelijk / Overstemt, Mars te saem / En kiest vrede bequaem." "Hoewel het feest van 'De Peoene' de luister en de heerlijkheid van de zestiende-eeuwse rederijkersbijeenkomsten niet evenaarde, mag het toch als het laatste hoogtepunt van de rederijkerskamers in het Zuiden worden beschouwd." (H.Meeus in: Nederlandse letteren in de Leuvense Universiteitsbibliotheek, Tentoonstellingscatalogus 1982, p.66).

      Lisbon: Pedro Craesbeck, A custa de Thome do Valle Mercador de livros, 1621. Recent vellum, new end papers.. 19th century manuscript annotations on back free end-paper. Title p. slightly discoloured, top right-hand corner of title p., last f. and lower margin of ff. (1 - 6) repaired, faint water stain in top inner margin, small ink stain on f. 17 recto, short tear repaired in top margin of f. 74, faint staining in ff. 65 - end.. This classic work was first printed in 1549 and frequently reprinted, for the last time in 1824. When Portugal came under Spanish rule, many Portuguese had to travel to Madrid to have their cases heard, and the confusion caused by the existence of two codes of official legislation, in which many laws in the second contradicted those in the first, led Philip II to reorganize the legal system early in his reign. João Martins da Costa, a lawyer and professor of jurisprudence, states in the preface that as the previous edition of 1592 of the work was outdated, he wished to present a more up-to-date version. Martins Caminha was jurisconsult and lawyer to the Casa de Suplicação in Lisbon. Innocêncio III, 164. Pinto de Mattos 380.

      - BMN I, p. 377; Krivatsy 12484; KVK & WorldCat (2 copies); STCN (2 copies). Fourth(?) edition of a very rare anonymous medical guide with 639 numbered entries, most of them discussing a particular ailment and recommending a medicine and/or other treatment. At the end is an alphabetical index of the ailments. All editions are rare.The Dutch title can be translated as "Princely gift, or: A medicine book" and the title-pages give some information about its origin. They say the book has been held in esteem by the House of Nassau in general and the Prince of Orange in particular. The printer's note to reader in 1621 says that "respected professors" provided these recipes for the noble houses of the Princes of Nassau, who have found them highly beneficial and preserve them as precious jewels.With the corner of one leaf burnt off, affecting a few words of text, and ink marks or dirt on an occasional leaf, but otherwise in good condition, with only an occasional minor marginal defect. The binding is rather dirty, with a small chip at the head of the spine and the sewing somewhat loose.

        Historia animalium sacra in qua plerorumque animalium praecipuae proprietates in gratiam studiosorum theologiae & ministrorum verbi ad usum eikonologikon breviter accommodantur.

      In Academia Wittebergensi ante annos aliquot dictata à Wolfgango Franzio. Editio Tertia. Wittenberg, Zachariae Schureri & Johan Gormanni, 1621. 8vo. (48),+ 888,+ 32 pp. Light foxing and some small stains. A few old underlinings and margin notes. Contemporary vellum. Blind tooled ornation on spine and boards. Blue edges. From the library of bishop Eric Waller (1732-1811), with its bookplate. VD17 14:690435D (only one copy). Originally published in 1612. Although it calls itself "editio tertia" this is at least the 4th edition. Wolfgang Franzius (alt. Franz el. Frantze) (1564-1628) var en luthersk teolog, prost i Slottskyrkan i Wittenberg samt professor i historia och i teologi. Hans "Historia animalum sacra" var ett vida spritt och inflytelserikt arbete som utkom första gången 1612, och sedan i talrika nya upplagor ända in på 1700-talet. Boken är en genomgång av naturens djurarter. Dess målgrupp är teologistudenter och präster. Ett centralt syfte med boken är att ge korrekt information till de som önskar använda sig av paralleller ur djurlivet i sina tal och predikningar. Därför fokuserar Franzius inte huvudsakligen på de aspekter av djurlivet som vanligen behandlas i lärda skrifter om faunan; storleken på djurens kroppar, deras inre och yttre organ och fortplantning osv. utan han tar fasta på djurens moraliska och estetiska egenskaper. I en artikel om boken i "Early Modern Zoology: The Construction of Animals in Science, Literature and the Visual Arts" skriver Vibeke Roggen att Franzius trots sitt onaturvetenskapliga syfte är med tidens mått förvånansvärt källkritisk i sina framställningar. I sina diskussioner om olika djurs existens kommer han visserligen fram till att enhörningen är ett i naturen förekommande djur, detta baserat på att den refereras i bibeln, men också på vad han bedömde som trovärdiga ögonvittnesuppgifter. Fågel Fenix däremot avfärdar han, eftersom den så som den beskrivits i alltför hög grad avviker från hur resten av naturen fungerar. Drakar, anser Franzius, finns i verkligheten men är i själva verket inget annat än mycket gamla och mycket stora ormar. Tvärt emot alla samtida auktoriteter går Franzius när han ifrågasätter teorin om "uralstring" eller den spontana uppkomsten av liv ur död materia, och till exempel menar att larver inte nödvändigtvis uppstår ur ruttet kött, utan möjligen ur ägg som lagts där av insekter som man inte sett, och att möss inte uppstår spontant på skepp utan förmodligen omärkta kommit ombord med lasten. Visserligen hänvisas till spontant uppstått liv i bibeln, men detta menar Franzius beskriver mirakler och inte naturliga händelser.

        Zinnebeelden, getrokken uit Horatius Flaccus, naer de geestrijke vinding van den geleerden Otto van Veen, op de zeden toegepast; en met bygedichten, op nieuws gerijmt.Amsterdam, Justus Dankerts, 1683. 4to. With engraved portrait of Horace on title-page, and 103 engraved emblems by A. Loeimans and A. Seil after Otto Vaenius. Contemporary vellum.

      - Landwehr, Emblem and fable books 383; Praz, p. 523; De Vries, Emblemata 38. First edition of an emblem book by the Dutch poet Anthony Jansen (ca. 1621-1696). The work is based on Otto Vaenius's Quinti Horatii Flacci Emblemata, an emblem book illustrating the Horace's poems. The emblems of the present edition were newly engraved at Amsterdam, most of them in reverse after Vaenius's engravings, with a few signed by A. Loeimans and A. Seil: little-known artists who probably worked in direct service of the Amsterdam publisher. The emblems, however, are as beautifully done as those by Vaenius himself, achieving a fine play with light and darkness by the use of various engraving techniques. All emblems have a motto in Latin engraved below on the copper-plate and a French letterpress quatrain below, with on the facing page an extensive Latin quotations from Horace and poems in Dutch and French written by Anthony Jansen, each with their own caption.Browned and slightly foxed throughout, with a few small stains. Binding slightly stained. Overall a very good copy.
