ALPINO Prospero
1627. Title within engraved border with figures of Greek naturalists Theophrastus and Dioscorides, and medallions above and below. 145 etched and engraved plates of exotic plants (unsigned). Woodcut initials, and woodcut and typographic ornaments throughout. 4to (210 x 150mm). [16], 344pp. Vellum over pasteboard, shelf number inked at foot of spine, faint inked title at head (worming to upper board). First edition of this descriptive catalogue of exotic plants by Italian physician and botanist Prospero Alpino (1553-1617), edited by his son and published after the author's death; with a fascinating botanical provenance. A key example of pre-Linnaean botany, it is an expansion of Alpino's first and best-known botanical work, De Plantis Aegypti Liber (Venice, 1592) in which he described Egyptian plants, some - the coffee bush, baobab and banana - for the first time, after his travels there as doctor to the Venetian consul to Cairo (1580-83). De Plantis Exoticis was published at a time when engravings, with the detail they afforded, were starting to supersede woodcuts in botanical illustration (Arber, 155; Roylance, 107). Accordingly, where Alpino's first work, De Plantis Aegypti, made use of woodcuts, De Plantis Exoticis here contains 145 copperplate engravings, in some cases of the whole plant, including roots, while in others just representative portions of leaves and branches. The depiction of the Hyosciamus Virginianus on p.324 is the first illustration of the species, and the earliest record of its introduction into Europe. The original drawings on which the engravings ar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hippocrates
France: Philippes Gaultier, 1627. See description. Les aphorismes d'Hyppocrate, avec le commentaire de Galien sur le premier Livre. Traduite de grec en francois, par M. I Breche. Avec annotations sur ledit premier Livre: ensemble certaines Paraphrases servans de brief commentaire, depuis le second Livre iusques a la fin du septiesme, par ledit Breche. Ou a este adiouste les Aphorismes de de Damascene, Medecin Arabe: Ensemble une Epitome sur les trois Livres des Temperans de Galien Author: Hippocrates - Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician of the Age of Pericles (Classical Greece), and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He is referred to as the father of western medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of Medicine. This intellectual school revolutionized medicine in ancient Greece, establishing it as a discipline distinct from other fields that it had traditionally been associated with (notably theurgy and philosophy), thus establishing medicine as a profession. However, the achievements of the writers of the Corpus, the practitioners of Hippocratic medicine, and the actions of Hippocrates himself were often commingled; thus very little is known about what Hippocrates actually thought, wrote, and did. Hippocrates is commonly portrayed as the paragon of the ancient physician, credited with coining the Hippocratic Oath, still relevant and in use today. He is also credited with greatly advancing the systematic study of clinical medicine, summing up the medical know … [Click Below for Full Description]

MONTAIGNE (Michel de)
(1627) Édition partagée entre plusieurs libraires, reproduisant avec quelques différences le texte de l'édition de 1617, qui fut la première à contenir l'importante traduction des citations latines et grecques de Montaigne faite à la demande des éditeurs, par Mlle de Gournay, assurant ainsi une plus large compréhension aux Essais. La page de titre - entièrement gravée - et le feuillet suivant, comportant le portrait de Montaigne, sont abimés et partiellement détachés ; mouillures claires anciennes sur quelques feuillets, sans gravité ; le dernier feuillet de table comporte des traces de restauration ; petites rousseurs éparses. L'exemplaire reste, malgré les défauts signalés, désirable et dans un état général correct.

Lucini Antonio Francesco
Florence [i.e., Paris?], F. L. D. Chartres excud. [i.e., François L'Anglois, dit Chartres], 1627. Twenty-three of twenty-five numbered etchings and engravings, including the title image (78-81x117-120 mm), all with large margins (each leaf measuring 198x141 mm). Lacking plates nos. 13 and 24. Unidentified blason watermark. Loose sheets, matted and preserved in a modern half-calf box. Minor fingermarks and other stains in outer blank margins of some leaves; pale waterstain or discolouration at the outer margin of some prints; minor bleeding at outside border of print no. 18, not affecting image; print no. 6 includes very minor staining within image. Most prints have a very slight amount of wash colour – always at the headgear and often barely noticeable – the casual 'doodling' of an early collector. Plate no. 2 includes the inked inscription, in an early hand, 'Les Incroyables', now slightly faded, in margin above image.Exceedingly rare suite of prints showing armed caramogi, i.e., dwarfs, engaged in duels or carrying a variety of weapons, a satire of the macabre jousts held in seventeenth-century Florence during Carnival, and a 'little known' (Viatte) addition to the corpus of Florentine caricature or grotesques which Baldinucci termed "invenzione bizzarrissima". Lucini (or Luccini) is said to have been in the circle – perhaps as a disciple – of the outstanding French engraver Jacques Callot, first in Florence (1616), and subsequently in Nancy. He is famous for his engravings after Stefano della Bella, and for all the engravings in the great sea atla … [Click Below for Full Description]

The first scientific study of the lymphatic system and the first book with anatomical illustrations printed in colour, in a fine copy in its original binding. A Cremona-born professor of anatomy working in Pavia, Aselli discovered the lymphatic vessels of the small intestine (which absorb digested fats and control their entry into the lymphatic system) while engaged with experimental research, and called them 'lacteas, sive albas venas', owing to the fact that, if incised, these vellels released a fluid similar to milk. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moscherosch, Johann Michael (1601-1669), S. de Vries (translator)
1627. Parchment binding (with small stains and discoloration), engraved frontispice of ""helsche geesten saater"", red pen underlining of author of title page. Text in Dutch. The six visions are: A la Mode, Vrouwen-Lof, Wyven-heerschappij, Helsche-Geesten, Tover-Beecker en 't Koop-Huys.With fullpage engravings for every chapter: between p 8-9, p. 144-145, p. 272-273, p. 380-381, p. 456-457 and p. 574-575. With this book about Visions Moscherosch initially set out simply to translate and somewhat rework the Dreams (1627) of Don Fransisco Gomez de Quevedo y Veillegas (1580-1645). The first of the visions are reasonably faithful to the original, but subsequent visions and later editions not only continually rework the language, making it more German, but add new material. The satirical visions hold a mirror up to the world with the intention not only of pointing out its errors but of demonstrating how it ought to be.

Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini o rifilata al rame, piccola mancanza nell'angolo inferio destro, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione. Esemplare appliacato su antico supporto di collezione. L'opera raffigura il martirio di 23 monaci francescani che furono crocifissi in Giappone, circa nel 1627. Proprio per questa ragione l'incisione viene datata al 1627 circa. Martyrdom of twenty-three Franciscan monks crucified in Japan, with crowd attending the torture, and soldiers piercing the monks with spears; St John the Baptist and angels appear in the sky, throwing laurel wreaths, palm leaves and flowers at the martyrs. c.1627 Example of the first state of two, before the imprint of Israel Silvestre. Etching, signed at lower left. A great impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, tirmmed to the platemark and laid down on antique paper, an old restore at the lower right corner, otherwise very good condition.

Ferdinand Iii, Holy Roman Emperor.
Ferdinand I I I , Holy Friedrich Wilhelm II, King of Prussia. (Estate of John F. Lewis). Ferdinand III, Holy Roman Emperor. Document Signed. 5 September, 1627.1 piece. Folio, docketed. The manuscript above is one among many important manuscripts which John Frederick Lewis, a highly regarded philanthropist, lawyer, and early 20th-century collector, used as primary source material for a comprehensive genealogy of his forbears. His chronological narrative was meant to chart the various world-historical developments and circumstances which ultimately led to the confluence of Mr. Lewis' Continental ancestors and those of the Mayflower Colony, and it extended even to his own lifetime. Housed in altogether fifteen portfolio volumes, the project was the culmination of decades of painstaking research and discerning collecting of the highest order. Most of the manuscripts in Mr. Lewis' collection have not appeared at auction for a century, or more, as evidenced by the clipped catalog descriptions which accompany them; Signed by Author

Rossi/ Sanson Giacomo Giovanni/ Nicolas (1627 - 1691) Rome
Artist: Rossi/ Sanson Giacomo Giovanni/ Nicolas ( - 1691) Rome; issued in: Rome; date: ca 1677, 1627. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 40 x 56; - description: Decorative and detailed map of total Asia and Southeast Asia with a title cartouche. The map provides an excellent depiction of the Philippines and China and it provides a fine detailed treatment of Asia, based upon the work of Nicolas Sanson.The region north of Japan portrays Hokkaido as a part of a large, boot-shaped peninsula attached to the mainland. The name Ieco, which usually is associated with Hokkaido, is here identified with a large landmass to the east that is separated from the peninsula by the St. d'Vries. Korea is shown as a long thin peninsula in the manner of the Mercator-Hondius version. Asia is Earth's largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the Eastern and Northern Hemispheres. The history of Asia can be seen as the distinct histories of several peripheral coastal regions: East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, linked by the interior mass of the Central Asian steppes. The coastal periphery was home to some of the world's earliest known civilizations, each of them developing around fertile river valleys. The civilizations in Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley and the Yellow River shared many similarities. These civilizations may well have exchanged technologies and ideas such as mathematics and the wheel. Other innovations, such as writing, seem to have been developed individually in each area. Cities, … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Aselli ..., who had been a pupil of Fallopius, practiced as a surgeon in Milan. There he continued his anatomic research and wrote in a more dynamic manner and with greater physiologic insight than has his predecessors, whose approach had been essentially teleologic and descriptive. Although Aselli's notebooks and jottings for lectures have never been published, he is renowned for this small volume, which was published two years after his death at the age of forty-five. 'The book records his chance discovery of the lacteal vessels in 1622 while he was displaying the mesenteric nerves of a dog at an anatomic demonstration. In this fed animal, he noted a network of mesenteric vessels that contained a whitish fluid. Because such engorgement was absent in a fasting animal … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERRARI, Giacomo; GARZONI, Tommasso
Aurelio e Lodovico Osanna. I. FIRST EDITION II. LATER EDITION Woodcut printer's device on title, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Later cloth-backed marbled boards, some wear to boards and edges; repair to second title. Ferrari's work with contemporary annotations. I. First edition, rare. Ferrari (fl.1619-1627), chief physician of Mantova, dedicated this work to Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua. He here examines the distinctions in philosophical approaches to many aspects of life through happiness and laughter. His main reference points are the two ancient philosophers, Democritus (the "philosopher of laughter") and Heraclitus (the "weeping philosopher"), due to their opposing philosophies. In the first of three dialogues Ferrari investigates the theme of laughter through the opinions of his two proponents, Alessandro Guerini and Cesare Cremonini, on a series of questions raised by Cicero, including what laughter is, where it comes from, and if it is appropriate for an orator. He references the works of ancient writers from Hippocrates to Aristotle. Ferrari states that laughter arises from the heart, and that it expands not only itself but the muscles of the face and chest. The second part is a dialogue about tears between two well-known physicians, André Du Laurens (1558-1609) and Joseph Duchesne (1544-1609). Ferrari, who translated Duchesne's work on pharmacology from Latin to Italian, explores the nature of tears, pointing out the obvious: some are sincere, other false. He treats the origin of tears, the different theories propounded by the ancient writers and phi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Begun in 1633 by his father Giuseppe (1570-1639), the press passed firstly to Giacomo and to his brother Giandomenico (1619-1653), and then later to Lorenzo Filippo (1682-?); in 1738 it became the Calcografia Camerale, from 1870 until 1945 the Regia Calcografica, and today it is known as the Calcografia Nazionale. Here are conserved, amongst many others, the plates of Giambattista Piranesi (1720-1778). Giacomo De' Rossi was the most involved of all the various family members who ran the press, and he worked between 1638 and 1691, and was to take the company to the height of its success.
