MEYER (Sébastian).
Fribourgi Brisgoiae, Typis Meyerianis 1627. - petit in-12. 24ff. 323pp. (1). Vélin de l'époque Edition Originale. Cet ouvrage curieux est une description du corps humain à travers 140 phénomènes dignes d'admiration, que l'auteur appelle "miracles", concernant sa structure ou ses fonctions. Ces phénomènes touchent aux organes des sens, à la neurologie, aux os et aux muscles, etc. Plusieurs d'entr'eux concernent les dents. Sébastian Meyer était médecin à Fribourg en Brisgau et a publié deux autres ouvrages de médecine. Celui-ci manque à toutes les bibliothèques consultées et aux bibliographies habituelles. A ce moment-là Meyer avait peut-être une imprimerie car l'ouvrage porte la mention "Typis Meyerianis". Papier uniformément roussi, marge extérieure du dernier feuillet doublé.

MAYNWARING, Roger
London: Printed By I.H. For Richard Badger, 1627. First Edition. Quarto. [2], 33pp, [1], 56pp. Nineteenth-century morocco backed marbled boards. Rubbed, with loss to head of spine and corners. Soiling/spotting to title and final leaf. Original stab-holes to gutter margin. Nineteenth-century institutional blind-stamp to title, A2 and final leaf. Roger Maynwaring (1589/90-1653), bishop of St. Davids. Following a promising academic career at All Souls, Maynwaring, patronage ensured a perpetual curacy at St Katherines Cree, Aldates in the City of London, and other clerical positions in the capital before proceeding BD and DD in 1625. Appointed a royal chaplain in the same year, his loyalty was proven beyond doubt in the wake of protest at Charles I's imposition of forced loans in 1626/7 when he preached two sermons especially supportive of absolute divine right. In promoting the rights of a King above the rule of common or statute law, and advocating absolute obedience to the King's rule in the particular circumstances of forced loans rather than in a general sense, his thought was verging on contemporary political extremism. Charles, in delight at his young chaplain's words, ordered the publication of both - hence the inclusion of 'By His Majesties Special Command' on the title - against the better judgement of Laud. Public and parliamentary reaction ensued: Maynwaring and his works were investigated by a committee on religion in 1628, he was charged in the strongest terms with insulting parliament, fined, imprisoned, disbarred from holding ecclesiastical o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henry Peacham
London - Francis Constable, 1627 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The scarce and important second edition of Henry Peacham's The Complete Gentleman. Bound in contemporary pigskin. The Second Impression, Much Inlarged. The full title of this work is: The Compleat Gentleman, Fashioning him absolute, in the most necessarie and commendable qualities concerning minde or bodie, that may be required in a noble gentleman. Whereunto is annexed a description of the order of a maine battaile, or pitched field, eight severall wayes: as also certaine necessarie instructions concerning the art of fishing, with other additions. The Complete Gentleman (1622), which Peacham finished after his return to London, is probably his best-known work, and it occupies a significant place in the history of courtesy literature. Its immediate inspiration was Peacham's conviction, arising from his continental tour, that the education of young English gentlemen was markedly inferior to that afforded to European gentry. . . The Complete Gentleman offers advice over a wide range of topics with humour and sagacity, and reflects many aspects of Peacham's experience -ODNB. Henry Peacham, 1578 - d. in or after 1644, was awriter and illustrator. Condition: The textblock binding is generally tight and firm. The inner hinges are held by two cords only. There is wear to the extremities, including bumping and foxing, with creases, and with marks and discolouration. There is slight loss. Internally the pages have browning with intermittent spots.

Ray, John (1627-1705)
Printed for John Martyn 2 parts in one volume: [18]+499; [title Catalogus Stirpium in Exeris Reginibus A nobis Observatarum, Quae vel non omnino vel parce admondum in Anglia Sponte proveniunt]+[6]+115 pages with 4 plates (2 folding). Small octavo (7 1/4" x 4 3/4") bound in original decorative leather with four raised spine bands. First edition.John Ray (29 November 1627 ? 17 January 1705) was an English naturalist, widely regarded as one of the earliest of the English parson-naturalists, and sometimes referred to as the father of English natural history. Until 1670, he wrote his name as John Wray. From then on, he used 'Ray', after "having ascertained that such had been the practice of his family before him". He published important works on botany, zoology, and natural theology. His classification of plants in his Historia Plantarum, was an important step towards modern taxonomy. Ray rejected the system of dichotomous division by which species were classified according to a per-conceived, either/or type system, and instead classified plants according to similarities and differences that emerged from observation. Thus he advanced scientific empiricism against the deductive rationalism of the scholastics. He was the first to give a biological definition of the term species. When Ray found himself unable to subscribe as required by the ?Bartholomew Act? of 1662 he, along with 13 other college fellows, resigned his fellowship on 24 August 1662 rather than swear to the declaration that the Solemn League and Covenant was not binding on those who had taken it. In the spring of 16 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Con 73 silografie a piena pagina di strumenti chirurgici (pinze per estrarre palle d'archibugio, trapani per interventi alla testa, tenaglie per cavar denti ecc.), e alambicchi. (32), 565, (3 bianche) pp.; (16), 86 pp.; freschissimo esemplare. Quarta e migliore edizione (prima: 1596) di questa interessante e non comune opera medica. E? divisa in quattro parti: la prima tratta la cura di varie malattie, infermità e indisposizioni; la seconda è dedicata alla distillazione; la terza riguarda gli strumenti utili alla chirurgia (molti sono nuovi e descritti qui per la prima volta); la quarta, che compare per la prima volta in questa edizione, è sulla peste. L'autore, apprezzato chirurgo attivo a Milano nella seconda metà del '500, si distinse anche per una particolare tecnica d'intervento al cervello. Il libro si distingue anche per le numerose e interessanti figure: sono infatti poche le opere del periodo sulla chirurgia e la distillazione con così tante illustrazioni. Wellcome 2224. Krivatsy 4029. A scarce medical work, noteworthy also for the 73 fine woodcuts of surgical instruments and apparatus for distillation. It was first published in 1596, but the fourth part on the plague and its remedies has been added for the first time to this fourth edition. A particularly fresh copy in a good period style vellum binding.

SIMLER, Josias - LAET, Johannes, de.
Ex officina Elzeviriana, Lugd[uni] Bat[avorum], 1627. Josias Simler (Kappel, 1530-Zurigo, 1576), pastore protestante e teologo, fu autore del primo libro dedicato unicamente alle Alpi, De Alpibus commentarius, e curatore della riedizione della Bibliotheca universalis del Gesner. Dal 1552 professore di esegesi neotestamentaria al Carolinum di Zurigo, dal 1560 occupò la cattedra di teologia. L’autore, aveva risposto inoltre in maniera affermativa alla domanda se la Svizzera fosse uno Stato o meno; la sua riflessione si basò su modelli concettuali analoghi a quelli del federalismo. Nella sua opera De republica Helvetiorum libri duo sostenne che, sebbene la Confederazione fosse priva di un organo esecutivo supremo, uno degli elementi distintivi dello Stato, essa era composta da membri il cui livello di coesione permetteva comunque di parlare di uno Stato svizzero. Nel 1691 Franz Michael Büeler definì la Svizzera uno Stand confederale, ossia come uno Stato, secondo la terminologia di quel tempo. Quando nel 1735 Johann Jacob Leu pubblicò un’edizione rivista dell’opera di Simler, riprese l’idea di Confederale quale Stato federale; la sua presentazione introduttiva della Svizzera costituisce un primo esempio di dottrina federalista.

BRAMER, Benjamin [INSTRUMENTS / GEOMETRY]
Kassel, 1627. Very rare first and only edition of this separately published broadside, describing an instrument for drawing conic sections invented by one of the most prolific architects and mathematicians of early seventeenth-century Germany. The broadside, dedicated to William, Landgrave of Hessen, as a New Year’s gift on the eve of the year 1628 is divided into three sections. The first contains the dedication to the author’s patron and a brief introduction explaining the need for such an instrument in the fields of optics, mechanics, “and other mathematical guilds.” The central section consists of an engraved plate depicting the instrument with a small inset showing a right and an oblique cone. The bottom third is divided into two columns of text, the first giving instructions for the construction of the instrument, the second describing its use. The broadside could have functioned as an advertisement for the instrument as well as a set of instructions to owners. Bramer’s instrument is essentially an instrument for drawing conic sections. The instrument consists of a vertical structure which is affixed at right angle to a level plane with a circle on it (the base of the cone), with an adjustable arm holding an angled board over the circle. The angle and height at which the board is suspended above it determine the cross section that is to be studied or drawn: in a right cone, the board is parallel to the circle. From the arm, a thin rod juts up marking the point of the cone. The study of conic sections had been a preoccupations of artists as wel … [Click Below for Full Description]

[2],43,[1],plate,239,[1],[8];[18],47,[1],[8],12 7,[3];[8],180,[blank]pp. 12mo. 19th century diced calf, spine gilt extra, morocco labels, later neatly rebacked, with much of the original backstrip laid down, a.e.g. With the piscatorial bookplate of Dean Sage, and another. An imperfect copy (see below), properly deaccessioned as an institutional duplicate, with bookplate bearing requisite withdrawal stamps. First collective edition, though parts two through four have separate dated title leaves, paginations and registers. According to the editor's conceit, the original text of the work was found in the belly of a fish. On June 23, 1626, scholar and theologian Dr. Joseph Mede (or Mead) of Christ's College, Cambridge, was walking through Cambridge's market, when a fishwife found a book wrapped in sailcloth inside the stomach of a codfish caught at King's Lynn. These texts were attributed to protestant reformer John Frith (1503-1533), who was imprisoned in a fish- cellar in Oxford and later burned at the stake. "Attributed as a whole to John Frith in part 1, which is sometimes attributed to Thomas Goad. Part 2, 'The preparation to the Crosse and to death,' is a reprint of 'Of the preparation to the Crosse, and to deathe,' 1540 (STC 11393), translated by and sometimes attributed to Richard Tracy as well as to Frith. Part 3, 'A mirrour, or, glasse to know thy selfe' and 'A briefe instruction, to teach a person willingly to die, and not to feare death,' is a reprint of Frith's 'A letter wryten unto the faythful folowers … [Click Below for Full Description]
