      31.4 x 21cm. Paper covered boards with leather back with partial gilt titles and leather corners.(i Title Page), (i blank), (ii The Printer To The Reader), (i Contents), (vi To the Worshipfull Company of the Barber Chyrurgeons - H Crooke 1615), (i To the Younger Sort of Barber Chirurgians - 1630), (i blank), (i Ambrose Fisher verse), 60pp. Numerous woodcuts throughout.

Additionally the title page is inscribed by Fleming: ''The Army Medico-Chirurgical Society, Portsmouth, from J W Fleming F.R.C.S.' Fleming was a noted collector of militaria. This is the first appearance in English of An Explanation of the Fashion and Use of three and fifty Instruments of Chirurgery, which was not fully published in English until 1634. Paré (c1510-1590) was a pioneer in surgical techniques and battlefield medicine (in particular the treatment of wounds) and inventor of several surgical instruments, notably the "crow's beak" to control haemorrhaging during amputation. The boards are worn, having loss to the paper covering the boards, loss of most of the spine, very rubbed edges and corners. The binding is firm and square. Internally, there is a 10.5 x 6cm label to the front pastedown as detailed above. The prelims from 'To the Worshipfull Company of the Barber Chyrurgeons' to p1 are lightly stained to the top half of the page as is the top 2cm or so of the remainder of the pages. There are occasional spots, small stains, ink and finger marks throughout occasional ghosting of woodcuts. There is a 2cm repaired closed tear at the fore edge of the title page, a 1.5cm closed tear near the fore edge of the contents page and one other to p ix of the prelims. In all, a very presentable copy of a rare volume in its first English translation.

        Davids hainous Sinne. Heartie Repentance. Heavie Punishment

      London, Printed by Tho. Cotes, for John Bellamie 1631. - Small 8vo., pp. 78, wanting the terminal blank; tiny restoration to blank upper corner of title-page and lower corner of A4-5, A2 shaved at outer margin with the loss of a few letters, else a handsome copy in early nineteenth-century straight grain olive morocco, joints slightly rubbed; Thomas Thorpe's pencilled note ('fine copy, extremely rare 8/8/0'), the Bute copy with his Cardiff Castle bookplate; bookplates of J. O. Edwards and Robert S Pirie.First and only edition of Fuller's first book, and his only volume of verse. It is a three-part poem written in a variation of rhyme royal, recounting King David's adultery with Bathsheba and its consequences.Shunning the tale's opportunities for erotic (and later military) description, Fuller instead 'anticipates Milton's method of appropriating the matter of Biblical narrative: he interiorises epic action by making internal moral deliberation the sphere of heroic accomplishment' (Raymond-Jean Fontaine, in The Sacred and Profane in English Renaissance Literature). When David catches sight of Bathsheba bathing, Fuller is careful to remind his readers that however beautiful she may be, she is surpassed by God's creation:   Her skinne, as is the skie not halfe so cleare,   Her curious veines, for colour come not neare   Those azure streaks, that in the Heavens appeare.Lest any have been inadvertently titillated, Fuller warns 'let no lustfull thoughts lodge in thy minde they must be kill'd'. The story goes on to relate how David had Bathsheba's husband, Uriah, killed, how he was reproved by 'plainedealing' Nathan the prophet, and how dire consequences fell upon him and his children. Rare. ESTC records only ten copies: six in the UK, four in North America (Folger, Huntington, Harvard, Yale).STC 11463; Gibson and Keynes I. Language: English

The first to support Harvey's De motu cordis in print. Fludd was trained anatomist and had watched Harvey cary out dissections at the Royal College of Physicians. In his later writings he referred to those dissections, and he was the first to support Harvey's De motu cordis in print, thinking that the views of his friend confirmed his own cosmological concept of the circulation of the blood publihed in 1629. The Medicina catholica summarizes Fludd's cosmological views and then goes into the weapon-salve problem and magnetism at great length. Restauration en marge de la page 301/302, nombreuses galeries de vers avec atteintes au texte dans la première moitié du volume, taches d'encre sur une double page, toutefois un exemplaire attractif dans sa première reliure.

In the first, the author offers to prove, and by example to show, that felicity consists not in pleasure; - in the second,not in riches;- in the third, not in honour and glory;-in the fourth, not in moral virtue, after the academicks and peripateticks, nor in philosophical contemplation; - in the fifth, he declares his own opinion of happiness of this life; - and in the sixth, he shows wherein consists the true felicity and Summun Bonum of man, and the way to attain it."

Pace's introduction to Lull dates from his time at the university of Valence in the south east of France. Hillgarth describes Pace's work as being somewhat exceptional among seventeenth-century interpreters of Lull in avoiding digressions into alchemy, cabalism and magic, and in sticking more closely to Lull's traditional interests (Ramon Lull and Lullism, p. 294).Palau 208041; Rogent and Duran 203.

Title page in red and black. Published in Leiden. Commentaries on Isaiah 30, by Isaac Abravanel (1437-1508) and Moses Alshekh (1507-1600) . Translated by Constantijn L'Empereur (1591?1648) , a promiment Dutch Hebraist. The translation ?is coupled with an attempt at refuting the positions and views of Abravanel and Alshekh. The goal is ?to give a complete understanding of the satisfaction of Christ. ? Both Abravanel and Alshekh deal extensively with the nature of the Messiah and the messianic era. Their commentaries were extremely well-known to both Jewish and Christian audiences. Alshekh, in his Bible commentaries, resorted to many allegorical and spiritual interpretations. Moreover, Alshekh himself had been influenced by Abravanel, the statesman, philosopher, and exegete, who fled Spain for Italy in 1492. Abravanel?s lucid style, influenced by Renaissance literary trends, and his elaborate treatment of issues of common concern to both Christians and Jews, together with his citation of Christian views, made him, from a Christian Hebraist perspective, possibly the most significant of Jewish authors, apart from Maimonides. ?

        De praefecto Urbis liber

      Tip. Rev. C. Ap. 1631 In - 4°; 1 c. di tav. (frontespizio figurato inciso su rame che raffigura un prefetto al cavallo), pp. (8), 96, completo delle 5 tavole incise su rame, alcuni legni tipografici (tra cui le api barberini); la dedica è a Taddeo Barberini. Manca pp. 33 - 34, che dovrebbe essere bianca. Legatura in piena pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Felice Contelori scrive questo trattato storico sulla figura del Prefetto della città, nell?occasione in cui Taddeo Barberini viene insignito dallo zio Urbano VIII della carica di Prefetto di Roma, carica che per lugna tradizione fu attribuito alla famiglia Della Rovere; l?investitura avvenne nella cappella Paolina al Quirinale. Contelori era custode della Biblioteca Vaticana, e come indica prima del sommario attinse a molti manoscritti inediti della Biblioteca e dell?Archvio. DBI: ?Nel 1631, in occasione dell?assunzione alla carica di prefetto di Roma di Taddeo Barberini, il C. dette alle stampe, a Roma, il primo dei suoi lavori, nati dalla consultazione e dallo studio dei fondi archivistici dell?Archivio Vaticano, il De praefecto Urbis, che egli dedicò al Barberini. Si occupava di questa tematica almeno dal 1629, quando aveva risposto ad un quesito sul diritto di precedenza goduto dal prefetto dell?Urbe e probabilmente già in precedenza, da quando cioè se ne interessava Urbano VIII, che nel 1624 aveva concluso la convenzione della devoluzione del ducato di Urbino alla S. Sede alla morte di Francesco Maria Della Rovere, il quale deteneva la carica di prefetto dell?Urbe?. I capitoli: De urbanae praefecturae origine et antiquitate, De urbis praefecti indumentis et ritu, De praefecti officio, De urbanae praefecturae potestate ac iurisdictione, Urbanae praefecturae praerogativae, Series praefectorum a Tomulo rege, usque ad ac tempore. Restauro a p. 71 con porzione di testo reintegrata. Leggere fioriture.

Dopo una dettagliata descrizione del contagio, rapidamente propagatosi, il Fiochetto ne espone l'eziologia, la diagnostica, la terapeutica, le regole per la purificazione della città. Wellcome, 2289. Krivatsy, 4078n. Vinciana, 2093. Canavesio, Seicentina, p. 307. Hirsch, II, p. 368. Bonino, I, 376: "Il Fiochetto non nega l'influsso degli astri nella produzione della peste, ch'egli dice propagarsi per contatto mediato, o immediato, e per sola inspirazione dell'aria, corrotta, che circonda l'inferno". Non in Manno. Sono censite 5 copie in SBN / ICCU. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
