1631. Frankfurt, Matthias Merian, (1631), (with:) Apparatus Plantarum primus: tributus in duos libros. I. De plantis bulbosis. II. De plantis tuberosis... Frankfurt, Matthias Merian, (1632). 2 vols in one. 4to (205 x 155mm). pp. 196, with engraved title and 29 full-page engraved plates (with blank conjugate to plate 21), 6 of which are printed in the text; 168, with engraved title and 36 engraved plates in text; small tear to preface of 'Apparatus' touching woodcut ornament and a few letters on verso, a very nice copy in contemporary vellum, spine a bit discoloured. First edition of one of the best of the early 17th-century gardening manuals, scientific in its detail and approach. It is known to have influenced John Evelyn who quotes it in his unpublished 'Elysium Britannicum'. Morton describes the work as 'typical of the experience and ideas that began to flow into botany from horticulture' and goes on to recount how Lauremberg rejected the idea of the 'plant soul' having a specific location, because 'horticulturalists knew that plants could live and reproduce themselves from very small pieces cut from the roots (i.e. rhizomes, stolons, etc.) as well as from branches, stems, seeds, and even leaves (as in the case of the Indian fig). Therefore the soul or vital force (vigor vitalis) is not in one part more than another, but diffused through the whole plant body... Lauremberg describes his own experiment, lasting three years, in which two hundred vine cuttings were grown in close association with two varieties of cabbage in order to test an ancient belief, mentioned by Pliny … [Click Below for Full Description]

SWEERTS, E.
1631. Amsterdam, Johann Jansson, 1631. Two vols in one. Folio (410 x 271mm). pp. [xxviii including frontispiece and portrait]; [xii, including terminal blank], with engraved frontispiece-title and portrait to part one, and 110 engraved plates with 560 figures of plants; some occasional marginal staining, several leaves with some browning, generally a very good copy, in contemporary yapped vellum, lettered in manuscript on spine, fore-edge worn. A large copy in its original binding, a later edition (first 1612) of one of the most attractive and popular of the early florilegia. The first part of the work is devoted to bulbous plants, and the second to miscellaneous beautiful and sweet-smelling garden plants. 'The first two editions were essentially catalogues for the selling of plants and bulbs, while the later editions were true florilegia intended for the connoisseur and the scientist... Sweerts was born in Zevenbergen, Holland, in 1552, but spent the greater part of his life in Amsterdam, where he worked as an artist and as a merchant in objects d'art and rare or curious natural specimens... His inventory included a wide variety of cultivated and bulbous plant species. His coupling of professions was an auspicious one, for rare flowers were considered prized items by collectors, but unlike the other objects in the connoisseur's collection, their beauty was transient and could only be captured on paper or canvas... Sweert's fame as a floriculturist spread far and wide, and a white iris was even named after him (the Iris sweertii). His name often appears in the correspondenc … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Galilei, Galileo, Astronom und Mathematiker (1564-1642)]. - Antonio del Turco, Goldschmied zu Florenz (fl. um 1630).
[Florenz], 10. VIII. 1631.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt (mit Adresse). Gr.-4to. Mit einem Schuldnerverzeichnis (7 SS. auf 6 Bll. Folio).. An den Florentiner Patrizier Alessandro Caccini mit der Bitte um Gewährung einer Pension an seinen verdienten Mitarbeiter Niccolaio Martinetti. Del Turco fügt nicht nur ein Verzeichnis der wichtigsten von seiner Werkstatt ausgeführten Arbeiten (mit Preisen) bei, sondern auch ein ausführliches Schuldnerverzeichnis ("Lista di Debitori del Faglio levata ad di 11 di Luglio 1631"). Gleich der erste aufgeführte Schuldner ist kein Geringerer als Galileo Galilei, dessen epochemachender "Dialogo sopra i due Massimi Sistemi del Mondo" eben zu dieser Zeit in Florenz in Druck ging, das Werk, für das ihm schon 1633 der Prozeß gemacht werden sollte. Welche Arbeit Galilei bei Caccini in Auftrag gegeben hatte, geht aus der Aufstellung nicht hervor; die Schuld ist mit 26,12.8 Scudi aber eine vergleichsweise geringe, wenn man sie etwa vergleicht mit den 300 Scudi, die der Großherzog Ferdinand II. schuldete, oder den offensichtlich schwer einbringlichen 1330 Scudi, mit denen die Erben nach dem Florentiner Theologen Giovanni Bandini belastet waren, der bereits 1628 als Domherr zu St. Peter in Rom gestorben war. - Durchgehend stärkere Wasserränder bzw. Feuchtigkeitsspuren sowie Randläsuren, jedoch durchwegs gut lesbar.

Selden John, Esquire
London by William Stansby for Richard Whitakers 1631 - The second edition of the work which earned Selden the praise of Ben Jonson, with expanded discourses on England that carried contemporary political ramifications. With the engraved bookplate of Theophilus Desbrisay. With engraved title in red and black, engraved initials and illustrations within the text. Thick 4to, bound in contemporary full calf, the boards framed with a double-rule in blind, the spine with raised bands and with a red morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt. a1-a4, 1-39; [2], 1-24; 1-131 pp. Very well preserved, the text surprisingly clean and still unpressed, minor edge wear to the title-page and endleaves, the binding sturdy and strong but with minor age to the extremities and evidence of earlier expert sophistication. THE FIRST MAJOR WORK OF HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE BY THE MAN JOHN MILTON CALLED "THE CHIEF OF LEARNED MEN REPUTED IN THIS LAND." It is also work for which Seldon was also praised as the "monarch of letters" by his friend Ben Jonson. Jonson's three page verses to his friend Selden are printed in the preliminaries. First published in 1614, this treatise on the titles of nobility, peerage law, heraldry and genealogy remained the most comprehensive work on the subject for centuries. This second edition is expanded by the author and includes further discourses on England. But the work goes well beyond England and Europe and includes Islamic lands and China. Revising the second edition created political ramifications for Selden. In investigating the origins of England’s political structu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Old calf a trifle scratched, and very slightly worn at corners; spine a little rubbed at head, with slight wear to extreme edge of lettering-piece; blank lower-margin of title-page (but not the verso) a little embrowned (apparently by contact with the turnovers of the calf); A5 with two short marginal tears not approaching the borders, and a trifle dusty on verso; blank lower fore-corner lacking to leaf F4; minute, barely visible, restorations to extreme lower fore-corner of last two leaves; otherwise a nice, unpressed, copy.

[16], 291, [13] pages. 17 cm. First edition. Text in Latin and Hebrew. Imprint date in Roman numerals. 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. ” (Entry 91, ‘Christian Hebraism: the study of Jewish culture by Christian scholars in medieval and early modern times, proceedings of a collo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Selden John, Esquire
London: by William Stansby for Richard Whitakers, 1631. The second edition of the work which earned Selden the praise of Ben Jonson, with expanded discourses on England that carried contemporary political ramifications. With the engraved bookplate of Theophilus Desbrisay. With engraved title in red and black, engraved initials and illustrations within the text. Thick 4to, bound in contemporary full calf, the boards framed with a double-rule in blind, the spine with raised bands and with a red morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt. a1-a4, 1-39; [2], 1-24; 1-131 pp. Very well preserved, the text surprisingly clean and still unpressed, minor edge wear to the title-page and endleaves, the binding sturdy and strong but with minor age to the extremities and evidence of earlier expert sophistication. THE FIRST MAJOR WORK OF HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE BY THE MAN JOHN MILTON CALLED "THE CHIEF OF LEARNED MEN REPUTED IN THIS LAND." It is also work for which Seldon was also praised as the "monarch of letters" by his friend Ben Jonson. Jonson's three page verses to his friend Selden are printed in the preliminaries. First published in 1614, this treatise on the titles of nobility, peerage law, heraldry and genealogy remained the most comprehensive work on the subject for centuries. This second edition is expanded by the author and includes further discourses on England. But the work goes well beyond England and Europe and includes Islamic lands and China. Revising the second edition created political ramifications for Selden. In investigating the origins of England's p … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Anonymous] [San Salvador de Bahia]
 Magnificent view of S. Salvador being attacked by the Dutch. c.1631. [Frankfurt]. Fine colour, wide margins and strong impression, a lovely example. 455 mm x 372 mm; 442 mm x 293 mm. Of great iconographic value, this a large, handsomely engraved and detailed view of the city being sieged by Dutch forces, with a numbered key and their explanation underneath. Salvador was the centre of the economic power in Portuguese Brazil. In late 1623, a force of 26 ships was sent to attack, raid and take Salvador from the Portuguese; the mission was successful, but for a short while, as the next year it was retaken by the Portuguese. This later attack was also successful, again only for a while, as the Dutch went at it again in 1627; the succession of events was well graphically represented by Visscher and Gerritsz [cartographer to the Dutch East and West India Co.].As a result of the Dutch attack and raid of Salvador, a series of broadsides and prints, this is one of the largest and more appealing. The view shows the city of Salvador under Dutch siege; the city is well represented and is of great iconographic value, it includes a numbered key to the city´s most important monuments and defences. An inset map of the Brazilian coast is found on the lower left side. The Portuguese presence in Salvador was long standing, as early as the second half of the 16th century; the city swiftly became one of the most important in the region; in 1624, a strong Dutch invasion put the Low Countries on the map of Brazilian history. Salvador was retaken the year after the invasion by the Portuguese and a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coppia di incisioni originali, eseguite all?acquaforte, 1631. Tratte dalla serie ?Capricci di Varie Figure?, rarissima suite eseguita dall?artista milanese nello stile di Jacques Callot. La serie sembra realizzata tra il febbraio 1630 e l?ottobre 1631, anno della morte del Cardinale Federico Borromeo, al quale è dedicata. Magnifiche prove dell?unico stato, particolarmente nitide e contrastate, impresse su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilate al rame e complete della linea marginale, in eccellente stato di conservazione.La prima lastra (B. 49) raffigura una piazza con sullo sfondo il duomo in costruzione.Molto interessante la scenografia rappresentata nella seconda lastra (B. 48). La ?macchina del Monte Etna? fu eretta nella piazza per celebrare il compleanno del Principe Baldassarre, figlio maggiore del Re di Spagna. La montagna era ornata in cima da numerose piante e circondata da medaglie, emblemi raffiguranti le varie provincie spagnole.La scenografia fu il frutto della collaborazione dell?architetto Richini, dei pittori Genovesino e Nuvolone e degli scultori Prevosto e Lasagna. Etchings, 1631, without the artist?s signature. From the ?Capriccio of various figures?, a very rare set made in the style of Jacques Callot. Superb impressions of the only state, showing very good contrasts, on contemporary laid paper, trimmed just on the platemark, in perfect conditions.The first plate (B. 49) represents a square with the Duomo (cathedral) the construction phase in the background.

Frankfurt, Matthias Merian, (1632). 2 vols in one. 4to (205 x 155mm). pp. 196, with engraved title and 29 full-page engraved plates (with blank conjugate to plate 21), 6 of which are printed in the text; 168, with engraved title and 36 engraved plates in text; small tear to preface of 'Apparatus' touching woodcut ornament and a few letters on verso, a very nice copy in contemporary vellum, spine a bit discoloured. First edition of one of the best of the early 17th-century gardening manuals, scientific in its detail and approach. It is known to have influenced John Evelyn who quotes it in his unpublished 'Elysium Britannicum'. Morton describes the work as 'typical of the experience and ideas that began to flow into botany from horticulture' and goes on to recount how Lauremberg rejected the idea of the 'plant soul' having a specific location, because 'horticulturalists knew that plants could live and reproduce themselves from very small pieces cut from the roots (i.e. rhizomes, stolons, etc.) as well as from branches, stems, seeds, and even leaves (as in the case of the Indian fig). Therefore the soul or vital force (vigor vitalis) is not in one part more than another, but diffused through the whole plant body... Lauremberg describes his own experiment, lasting three years, in which two hundred vine cuttings were grown in close association with two varieties of cabbage in order to test an ancient belief, mentioned by Pliny, that … [Click Below for Full Description]

III, 251; Harry Friedenwald, Jewish luminaries in medical history, Baltimore, 1946, p. 170: "This book ranks as the most intense among those vilifying the Jewish physician". - Nicht bei Fürst. - Sehr seltenes antisemitisches Machwerk des Frankfurter Arztes Ludwig von Hörnigk (1600-1667), ein Rundumschlag gegen alle jüdischen Kollegen, dessen Anlass aber wohl der Streit mit dem Frankfurter Arzt Schlamm gewesen sein mag, der als ignorant und geldgierig gebrandmarkt wird. Angeblich stehen Koberer vor dem Frankfurter Ghetto, sprechen Passanten an und bringen deren Urin in die Praxen ihrer auftraggebenden Ärzte. Dort wird den überraschten und verängstigten Christen eine beängstigende Diagnose gestellt und somit eine neue, zahlungskräftige Patientenschar gewonnen. Vermutlich war die Praxis des Dr. Hörnigks für Privatpatienten nicht besonders attraktiv. - Der allegorische Kupfertitel zeigt einen jüdischen Arzt bei der Taufe. - Eventuell fehlt der typographische Titel, der Text beginnt mit a2; allerdings ist auch bei Bibliotheksexemplaren und den wenigen, in den letzten Jahrzehnten im Handel auftauchenden Exemplaren kein solcher vorhanden.
