De Bry, Johann Theodor
Frankfurt, Erasmus Kempffer, 1601, 1628. Folio (220 x 317 mm). 12 books bound in 4 volumes. With 10 engr. title pages, 252 engraved illustrations, 3 engr. views, 17 engr. maps, and 3 armorial engravings. Bound at the end are 5 extra maps and views (including a world map and a view of Jerusalem) from Marino Sanuto's 1611 "Liber secretorum fidelium crucis". Slightly later Spanish limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Ties. All twelve books of Théodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies and considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material on Africa, India, and South Asia. Notably, book seven includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Persian Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima. Balbi was the first to record the place names along the coa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Du LAURENS, Andre
1628. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Andre du Laurens was a French physician primarily known for his 'History of Anatomy'. As the personal physician to Marie de Medici and King Henry IV, du Laurens composed many of his treatises on medicine, most of which went through many variations and editions. He wrote extensively on tuberculosis and the lymph nodes of the neck, a disease that was very common during his time. Du Laurens wrote how the 'King's Evil' couldn't simply be cured by a 'royal touch' even though King Henry IV would regularly touch those inflicted with disease in hopes of curing them. Garrison-Morton also claims that Du Laurens provided one of the earliest records of the goiter, which he maintained as a contagious ailment. This rare 1628 printing of the works of Du Laurens was published by Durand and incorporates both volumes in one fine tome. The first volumes is the entire 'History of Anatomy' and the second volume is the rest of his known works. Many of the works in this printing feature a Latin translation from the original French including quotations in Greek. [Attributes: First Edition]

Scarce second edition of the first "Decade" volume of João de Barros Asia, a notable and one of the best historical compilation related with the first Portuguese world exploits and the "Age of Discovery" during the late 15th and early 16th centuries. The first "Decade" volume is crucial work for the study of the first Portuguese explorers and explorations (mainly in Africa and Asia). Barros' First Decade contains early descriptions of African tribes and kingdoms. It accounts for the Islamic presence in North Africa, and Asia and accounts for the military campaigns between the moors of north Africa and the Portuguese. Barros´s describes the first European sea voyage to India, the first European encounters in India, diplomatic negotiations and military campaigns, wars against Muslim states in Asia, the discovery of Brazil, Colombo's negotiations with the D. João II, the kingdom of Pegu (Birmania), Ormuz, and so on. João De Barros (1496-1570), was a scholar and erudite in various areas, but it was as a historian that he gained higher projection. Barros' Asia was a result of a life effort and constitutes his main work achievement. Using the same model of the great Roman historian Titus Livius, Barros' divided his "Asia" in three "Decades" (a fourth Decade was finished and published many years after João de Barros' death). The first Decade was published in 1552, the second "Decade" in 1553, third in 1563, and the fourth Decade, published in 1615 (many years after Barros' death and partly by a different author).

The play, which was divided into two days and ten acts, had a complicated plot and contained 5000 lines "[each day is divided in five acts in verse, with a preface by F. O. P., i.e. Franc ois Ogier Parisien]". It required an immense stage on which the two towns were represented, with a field in between, where the contests took place. Tyr et Sidon is noteworthy as an attempt to introduce the liberty of the Spanish and English drama into France, thus anticipating the romantic revolt of the 19th century. It is reprinted in the 8th volume of the Ancien Théâtre français. Schélandre was also the author of a Stuartide (1611), and of Les Sept Excellents Travaux de la pénitence de Saint Pierre (1636).

RANCHIN, François
Rouen, David Geuffroy, 1628. ______ Format : In-8. Collation : (16), 554, (22), (8), 691, (29) pp. Reliure : Vélin. (Reliure de l'époque.). ____ Dernière édition, plus correcte que les précédentes. Il ne s'agit pas ici que d'une simple traduction de Guy de Chauliac puisque François Ranchin, avec ses commentaires, traite de questions qui ne se posaient pas au XIVe siècle comme les plaies par arquebuse et la vérole. C'est selon Louis Dulieu, un excellent manuel pour les étudiants en chirurgie et Ranchin se distingue "en se déclarant par exemple partisan de la rhinoplastie de Tagliacozzi alors oubliée." François Ranchin (1564-1641), a été Chancelier de la Faculté de Médecine de Montpellier, pendant près de trente ans et dont il rénova complètement l'enseignement. Bon exemplaire. *-------*.

PARE, Ambroise
1628 Ambroise Pare MONSTERS Medicine Surgery Illustrated UNICORN Bestiary FOLIO Ambroise Paré was a French surgeon and biologist and is considered to be one of the founders of modern surgery and pathology whose techniques in surgery were especially important in the treating of battlefield wounds. He was known to practice bizarre medical treatments and techniques as well as implementing his extensive studies of animals on his patients. In his complete works, Paré covers human and animal anatomy, discovery and existence of monsters and cryptozoological creatures such as the unicorn! In fact, Paré states that the unicorn horn had healing properties for the plague! (Paré, p. 812). This edition of the works of Ambroise Paré is the first critical edition and features incredible illustrations of animals including giant ducks, fictional animals such as mermaids and unicorns (p. 796), and deformed humans and animals such as Siamese twins and three-headed sheep (p.1034). Other figures include elephants, rhinos, cheetahs, giant fish, and octopuses. This work reports Paré’s experiments that tested the effects of bezoar stones, which had, to this point, been thought to cure the effects of poisoning. Paré disproved that these stones had any effect. Final edition published in Paris. Illustrated with 373 woodcuts! HUGE & Incredible folio.

LAMBE, JOHN
Printed in Amsterdam, 1628 [but London: Printed by J. Barker for J. Sturt, circa 1810], 1628. A type-facsimile edition. See A. T. Hazen, "J. Sturt, Facsimilist" in The Library, June 1944, pages 72-79; noted under Lowndes, page 1301, who states "forty-four copies struck off.". Boards and edges rubbed; text a little foxed; very good copy.. 4to, modern half calf, marbled paper boards, gilt lettering. Woodcut pictorial title-page. One of several (Hazen records 17) type-facsimiles of old pamphlets and tracts produced by bookseller J. Sturt, in a manner popular at the time and famously practiced by antiquaries such as Joseph Haslewood and Egerton Brydges. This life of John Lambe (1545-1628) recounts his strange story as a sorcerer, magician and astrologer who was killed by a mob in June 1628. See the DNB. This copy, like many examples, does not have an imprint at the foot of the final page of text, which has led some cataloguers and booksellers over the years to mistake copies for the original of 1628. But there is a telltale sign in the type used in the text: it is Caslon. Early annotation about this volume on the front free endpaper.

Barcelona, Sebastian de Cormellas, 1628. 4º menor (20,4 x 14,9 cm.) 24 h. inc. port., 273 p., 19 h. sin num. Impresión a dos columnas. Pergamino de época, rotulación en lomo: Tratados delas Brujas. Última edición de este exto extremadamente interesante, inicialmente impreso en 1539, en el que se exponen distintas formas de rituales y magia negra que se practicaban en la época y cuya práctica, junto con la quiromancia, la nigromancia, la hechicería y la adivinación y la llamada “falsa astrología”, el autor –matemático formado en la Universidad de Salamanca– condena enérgicamente. Dirigido a los prelados, los jueces eclesiásticos y los magistrados laicos instándoles a perseguir las supersticiones con rigor. Ciruelo ofrece un recuento de rituales y costumbres considerados como supersticiosos a comienzos del siglo XVI. Preceptor de Felipe II, fue un hombre polifacético, escribió sobre aritmética, perspectiva y música, y su saber se extendió a la historia, la filosofía y las humanidades. “A comienzos del renacimiento la superstición era considerada un pecado severo que debía ser reprobado y combatido, por lo que tanto teólogos como clérigos e inquisidores se centraron en extirpar cualquier costumbre o idolatría que tuviera indicios leves de ser vana. En su Reprovación de las supersticiones y hechizerías [Ciruelo] considera que Dios mandó a su Hijo al mundo para que «combatiesse con el diablo y lo echasse del mundo como a tyrano y falso señor, y que no tenía justo título para reynar sobre las ánimas que Dios avía criado». Pero el diablo se negó a perder la batalla y, al ver que e … [Click Below for Full Description]
