CROON, Petrus.
STCV 3151545 (3 copies); Verberckmoes, Laughter, jestbooks and society in the Spanish Netherlands, p. 189 Rare first and only edition of a book with entertaining riddles in prose and verse, for use within the family or at social parties, by the popular author Petrus Croon IV (1634-1682). He states in his preface, that because his earlier published book Moy-al was so graciously received, he presents his readers with another collection of riddles and epigrams, to feed both their lust for pleasure and their lust for learning. All riddles are presented to Philoxenus, a lover of guests, and are told by Conviva, an invited friend. The riddles are given in verse and the answers are afterwards discussed in dialogues, with the solutions hinted at but not bluntly given, because Croon believed it would keep interest when the answer was not fully known. Included at the end is a section containing the solutions to all riddles and emblems of the Moy-al.With library stamps and bookplate. Frontispiece and title-page closely trimmed, but without loss of the image or text. Rebacked, lacking last flyleaf. Overall in good condition.

HONDIUS, JODOCUS
ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MAPS OF CHINA "China" Copper engraving made by Gerard Mercator published in Amsterdam in 1634 by Jodocus Hondius. Verso Dutch text. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 34 x 47 cm. Of the lands in the Far East, China was seen as the wealthiest and most mysterious and the Jesuit missionairies were among the first to make the dangerous journey. Geographically the map is an interesting array of fact and fiction. The map contains rudimentary geographical information, as there was very little actually known of the region during the early part of the seventeenth century. The two most prominent features of this survey are the portrayal of the peninsula of Korea and the charming illustration China's great wall, a wonder of both ancient and modern worlds. There is also a note porporting to be the location of the palace of the emperor of China. Despite the odd elongation of the country, there are attemps to show various provinces, and seven great cities such as Canton are marked. The interior of China is dominated by several large lakes and the mythical Chiamai Lacus forms the headwaters of five large rivers in northeastern India. The northwest coastline of America appears in the upper top corner with a notation that refers to the Tartar hordes (and the deer) that inhabit the region. As ever in these early maps seamonsters stalk unwary ships and Hondius shows a Dutch merchant sailing on what is labeled as "Chinensis Oceanus". This ocean is portrayed with an elaborate and beautiful pattern which attempts to portray the movement of the waves. The isl … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALILEI GALILEO GALILEE - MERSENNE (Marin)]
Paris, Henry Guenon, 1634 ; in-8 de (16), 240 [ie 242] pages ; brochage XVIIIe. Rare première édition de la première défense, en France et en langue française, du Dialogo (1632), et première narration, en France, du procès de Galilée. Exemplaire de première état à la date de 1634 mais expurgé avec les questions XXXIV, XLIV et XLV corrigées. « In 1629, after some earlier approaches, Mersenne wrote to Galileo, offering his services in publishing “the new system of the motion of the earth which you have perfected, but which you cannot publish because of the prohibition of the Inquisition”. Galileo did not reply to this generous offer—nor, indeed, to any of Mersenne’s later letters to him. But Mersenne was not put off. He had come to see in Galileo’s work a supreme illustration of the rationality of nature governed by mechanical laws and, so far as these laws went, of the true program for natural science. In 1633 he published his first critique of Galileo’s Dialogo (1632) in his Traité des mouvemens et de la cheute des corps pesans et de la proportion de leurs différentes vitesses, dans lequel l’on verra plusieurs expériences trés exactes. His first response to hearing of Galileo’s condemnation in that year was to agree with the need for the Church to preserve Scripture from error; yet he came forward at once with a French version (with additions of his own) of Galileo’s unpublished early treatise on mechanics under the title Les méchaniques de Galilée (1634), and with a summary account of the first two days of the Dialogo and of the trial in Les questions théologiques, physiqu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Visscher, N. J.
[Amsterdam, N. J. Visscher], 1634. Oblong folio (20.1 x 30.3 cm). Engraved title page or frontispiece with title in cartouche, and 19 finely engraved plates [together numbered (1)-20], each with a print-size of 12.5 x 19.0 cm. Bound without covers. A fine suite of fishes, marine mammals and several crustaceans, engraved by the Dutch engraver, mapmaker and publisher Claes Jansz Visscher (1587-1652), after Adriaen Collaert. Visscher (Fisher) was also known as Nicolas Joannes Piscator-an apt name, given the subject of this work. A coherent suite with strong impressions. Often such suites are found trimmed to the border and mounted; this one, however, has fine, broad margins, even wider than those of the copy in the British Museum (see the British Museum Research Collection online). In contrast with Collaert, who placed his fish in landscapes-as if stranded-Visscher "freed" his subject from picturesque settings and clutterings of irrelevant artefacts, and made the images more suitable for comparison and identification. The individual fishes, whales, crabs, turtles, and other animals (including a crocodile, and hermit crab), have captions with their Latin and Dutch names. The title page shows a fisherman in an allegorical setting, and the text "van Godt alleen" (from God only). Dean reports a copy with 26 plates and "without descriptions": evidently this is at odds with all other sources (e.g. OCLC). We found only two auction records in the last 70 years. Old ink inscription in the left margin of the title; title leaf and last plate edges slightly soiled, frayed, and partly chip … [Click Below for Full Description]

HO, Chun (or HEO JUN or XU JUN)
Woodcut illus. in the text. 25 vols. Small folio (340 x 227 mm.), orig. wrappers (rubbed, occasional minor staining), orig. stitching. [Hanseongbu], Korea: [colophon in Vol. 2 is dated 1634].Second edition (1st ed.: 1613) of a very great rarity; this is "the greatest of all Korean medical treatises, [which] devotes it last chapters to acupuncture and moxibustion."-Lu & Needham, Celestial Lancets, p. 263n.Heo Jun (1539 or 1546-1615), was a court physician of the Yangcheon Heo clan during the reign of King Seonjo (1568-1608), of the Joseon Dynasty in Korea. During the Japanese invasion of Korea (1592-98), Heo faithfully accompanied the King through numerous difficult battles. Following the conflict, the King commissioned Heo to write a medical book for his citizens, who suffered from post-war famines and epidemics. In 1610, Heo completed his masterwork which was first published in 1613 (an even rarer book).The Dongui Bogam is divided into five broad chapters: internal medicine, external medicine, miscellaneous diseases, remedies, and acupuncture. In the first section on internal medicine, Heo describes the interdependence of the liver, lung, kidney, heart, and spleen. The section on external medicine explains how the skin, muscles, blood vessels, tendons, and bones allow for movement and maintenance of posture. The chapter on miscellaneous diseases describes the symptoms, diagnoses, and treatment methods of various diseases. Heo's remedies rely on readily found medicinal herbs and plants, and he provides impressively detailed instructions on how to extract, maintain … [Click Below for Full Description]

GODARD, Benjamin 1849-1895
Folio (330 x 255 mm). Title + 7 pp. Notated in ink on systems with 3 staves, one for solo voice ("Chant") and two for piano, on 16-stave paper with small octagonal blindstamp of Lard-Esnault, Paris to upper inner corners. With autograph dedication to head of title: "à Madame La Comtesse Mercy d'Argenteau." With text in French. A fair copy. Slightly browned, a bit heavier at margins; some show-through; occasional smudges. Closely trimmed at lower edge, just affecting notation in several instances. Published as a separate piece by Durand & Schœnewerk in Paris [PN D.S. & Cie. 1634], [1873]). "Godard composed works in most genres with the exception of church music, but ultimately he made his reputation as a composer of salon pieces for piano and of songs, albums of which were translated into English... His early promise did not really develop in his later works, although his early death from consumption meant that he had no chance to mature fully as a composer... His songs have considerable charm and one or two numbers from his operas have survived in the repertory in their own right." Richard Langham Smith in Grove Music Online. Louise Mercy d'Argenteau (born Marie-Clotilde-Elisabeth Louise de Riquet, 1837-1890), the dedicatee, became famous for her championship of Russian nationalist composers, especially Alexander Borodin and César Cui. Auguste de Chatillon (1808-1881) was a painter and poet.

SALA, ANGELO (ANGELUS).
Güstrow (Rostock), Johan Hallervords, 1634. Small 8vo. Later, modest clothbacked marbled boards. (16),223,(20) pp. Very light browning and a few scattered brownspots. One leaf (pp. 143/44) loosing part of margins, but no loss of text. ¶ Scarce first edition of an importent work on the borderline of chemistry and medicine. Osler states that he "was one of the founders of modern chemistry"."Sala (following Paracelsus) defined the Spagyric Art as that part of chemistry which has for its subject the natural bodies, vegetable, animal, and mineral, and such operations as tend to the end of rendering them useful in medicine.... its principal operations are separation, subtilisation, and sublimation." (Partington)."He was an able physician and an excellent chemist, an admirer and to some extent a follower of Paracelsus, an advocate of chemical remedies, an opponent of quackery, and he was able to judge fairly the merits both of the chemical and Galenic systems of medicine then in conflict. Concring calls him the first of the chemists who was free from triffling;... (Ferguson)."Considering his work as a whole, it is evident that Sala was above all a practitioner. In his view, demonstrations could be carried out only through manual operations (inventionibus manualibus), that is to say, only with the aid of experimental examples, which he clearly distinguished from argumentation. For him, chemistry was still a handicraft (ars)."(DSB).Ferguson II, p. 316. - Partington II, p. 277 (the second edition 1637). - Not in Neville, Not in Duveen.

Assarino Luca.
Lodomiro della Tortorella, pp. 213 danneggiate le ultime due carte (conservati il testo e la piccola xilografia in fine). Stratonica è l'opera più nota di Luca Assarino (Siviglia, 1607-Torino, 1672). I due libri narrano le vicende di Stratonica, figlia di Demetrio e di Fila, amante di Antioco; stanno a sé. Solo successivamente (1637) si aggiunse la 3° parte ed ancora una 4° (apocrifa, in Viterbo, nel 1644). Il romanzo ebbe un successo davvero straordinario, decine di ristampe, numerose traduzioni in inglese, francese, tedesco. Non abbiamo trovato traccia della nostra edizione datata 1634; seppure con titolo lievemente diverso, sembrerebbe essere la prima (non nota e certo rara). Cfr. Piantanida, 3173, che cita un'edizione della Stratonica del 1635 quale originale e non menziona la nostra. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

SCULTETUS, ABRAHAM
Francofurti, Jonae Rhodii, 1634. (20) 1336 (16) p. Origineel Leer met ribben, 4° (Rug iets slijtage. Abr. Scultetus 1566-1624, was predikant en professor in Heidelberg en afgevaardigde naar de Dordtse Synode 1618-1619. In dit werk analyseert hij de theologie en de werken van de meest bekende Kerkvaders. Abraham Scultetus was a Calvinist. He held to the doctrines of predestination and agreed with the Synod of Dort and their doctrinal deliverances. Scultetus was a Superlapsarian, and taught that from his position as professor at Heidelberg. Scultetus denied the imputation of the active obedience of Christ following the teaching of Piscator. Scultetus was chosen as a representative of the Palatinate for the Synod of Dort. Scultetus was a prominent member of that body. He preached a sermon on 122 Psalm on 15 December, an early honor given to him by the Synod. He also gave an address on the "Certainty of Grace" that apparently showed him to be a gifted speaker. Some of held that Scultetus was the most prominent foreigner at the Synod along with George Carleton, Bishop of Llandaff from England. He agreed with the condemnation of the Remonstrants and the doctrinal decrees of the Synod.).
