        Pharmacopaea Amstelredamensis, of d'Amsterdammer apotheek, in welke allerlei medicamenten, zijnde tot Amsterdam in 't gebruik, konstiglijk bereid worden. Als ook des selfs krachten en manier van ingeven. Den vierden druk ...Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1690. 12mo. With an engraved title-page by Jan Luyken, showing the interior of an apothecary. Contemporary vellum.

      Daems & Vandewiele, Noord- en zuidned. stedelijke pharmacopeeën, p. 58 (1 copy); V. Eeghen & V.d. Kellen 486; STCN (same copy, lacking frontispiece). Rare fourth edition of a Dutch translation of the 1636 Amsterdam Pharmacopoea. Unlike the original Latin edition, the Dutch translation not only lists ingredients, but also provides recipes to prepare the medicines. The numbers for quantities, as the publisher notes in the foreword, are spelled out to avoid any (fatal) problems arising from typesetting errors. A list of medical titles printed and sold by the publisher appears on the final page.The original Latin Pharmacopoea Amstelredamensis, the first Dutch pharmacopoeia, with recipes for nearly 200 medicines, was compiled anonymously by Nicolaes Tulp (1593-1674) by order of the city of Amsterdam, to serve as an official legal standard for the correct preparation of numerous medicines. Several cities in the southern Low Countries and Germany, and even London, had produced pharmacopoeias before any Dutch city and Tulp based his on those published in Augsburg, Cologne and London, primarily on the 1622 edition of the Pharmacopoea Augustana (providing about 85% of the content), with some material from the 1627 Dispensatorium Coloniense and the 1627 edition of the Pharmacopoea Londinensis.Browned and spotted throughout, with a few small holes and with a large water stain in the lower margin. The binding soiled, with a water stain at the foot of the boards and a crack at the foot of the spine. Quire F loose in binding. A fair copy.

Second edition of one of the earliest, if not the first, of maxims of the English Law (Rees 1: 20). CBEL 1: 870. We have here but twenty-five out of three hundred Rules which [Bacon] had collected: 'I thought good, before I brought them all into form, to publishsome few, that by the taste of other men's opinion...I might receive eitherapprobation in my own course, or better advice for the altering of others which remain. ' The excellence of that which we possess makes us grieve that we have so small a proportion of that which the author designed: 'Though some great masters of the Law did outgo him in bulk...yet in the science of the grounds, and mysteries of the Law, he was exceeded by none'--Preface to Blackstone's Anal.

        Greece. "????s. Graecia Sophiani

      Greece: A Paris " "Chez N Langlois rue Saint Jaques àla Victoire" c1640-60. Copper engraved map of Greece after Ortelius by Henri Le Roy. Original outline colour; verso blank. Decorative title cartouche and scale. The map by Henri Le Roy seems to have first been published by Michel Van Lochom in 1636 and then by J Boisseau in 1643 in his " Tresor des Cartes Géographiques". Thereafter the plate seems to have passed through a number of hands including that of Pierre Mariette who was stepfather to Nicolas Langlois the present publisher. Dark impression; signs of former framing, leading to toning and tape to edges on verso; dampstain to lower margin; centrefold split, due to removal of guard, repaired to verso. Henri Le Roy (1579-1652) was a Parisian engraver. Little is known about Le Roy, however the British Museum have a set of plates by him depicting insects "Le Jardin de Sauterelles et Papillons," France, c1650 which they believe were intended to serve as a pattern for craftsmen working in the decorative arts such as embroidery or metalwork. The Victoria and Albert Museum also have a further series of engravings" this series of seven frieze designs, which could have been put to use as designs for architectural ornaments, textiles or other objects" Both of these fit with the publisher Michel van Lochom "Graveur et Imprimaeur du Roy" who published a number of works on design and ornamentation and may well have asked Le Roy an engraver known to him to copy Ortelius map as interest increased in cartography in France. "The practice of plagiarizing prints or maps seems to have been common in the seventeenth century,and it does not seem to have been dishonorable: consider, for example, the copies of Dutch maps from the Nether- lands (of Artois and Boulonnaise, Hainaut and Cambrésis, Luxembourg, and Savoy) signed by Pierre Duval, the nephew of Nicolas I Sanson d'Abbeville, in 1646 and published by Pierre I Mariette." [Pastoureau",Les Atlas Français" ,pp497?500."] Langlois, François (1588-1647) French. was a painter, publisher-printseller,and bookseller who lived on rue Saint-Jacques "AuxColonnes d'Hercules." his widow married Pierre Mariette II in 1655. In 1637, only 5 percent of his stoc kconsisted of topographical plates or blocks. The rest was composed of ornamental engravings In 1644, he bought part of Tavernier's stock. In 1655, eight years after Langlois's death, his son Nicolas I Langlois distributed the maps of French geographers, such as Tassin, Sanson,and Duval, as well as those of foreign cartographers, suchas Nicolaas Visscher and Vincenzo Coronelli. His own son was another Nicolas (c.1670-1707) who took over his father's shop in 1703.

        Prodromus Coptus sive Aegyptiacus cum linguae Coptae

      Woodcut vignette on title, woodcut illus. in the text, & many exotic type fonts used. 12 p.l., 338 pp. 4to, late 18th-cent. half calf & marbled boards (some browning as is usual with this book), spine gilt, black morocco lettering piece on spine. Rome: Propaganda Fide, 1636. First edition. This present work is "the first Coptic grammar to appear in the West, [it] was for centuries the basis for Coptic studies, along with Kircher's later work Lingua aegyptiaca restituta (1643). Kircher had encountered hieroglyphs during his tertianship (a one-year period of religious study in preparation for the ministry) in Speier, and he was convinced - correctly - that Coptic was a late vestige of ancient Egyptian. While at Avignon he was given several Coptic manuscripts by his friend and patron Nicolas Claude Fabri de Peiresc. Later in Rome Kircher acquired an Arabic-Coptic vocabulary brought from Egypt by Pietro della Valle. On the basis of these, and with Peiresc's encouragement, Kircher compiled the Prodromus. As the title reveals, it was to be a precursor of a later work on the Egyptian language, perhaps the Lingua aegyptiaca restituta. In both works he stresses the importance of Coptic for interpreting hieroglyphics. Because 'things Egyptian' were the rage in seventeenth-century Europe, the Prodromus attained immediate popularity and firmly established Kircher's reputation as a scholar… "Type fonts include Greek, Syriac, Arabic, Hebrew, Estranghelo, Samaritan, Armenian, Chaldean, Rashi, Amharic, 'Saracen,' hieroglyphic, and of course Coptic - a tour de force of seventeenth-century typography."-Merrill, Athanasius Kircher, 3. This book is virtually a type specimen of the fonts possessed by the new established (1626) Press of the Propaganda Fide. Very good copy. Stamp on free front endpaper of the "Biblioteca Privata Pasquale Regina" and a signature on blank portion of title. Dunnhaupt notes two settings of the title-page (no priority): 1. with the insignia of the dedicatee, Francesco Barberini, and 2. a medallion of Christ and Apostles (as in our copy). ❧ Dunnhaupt, II, pp. 996-97.

The only collected edition, containing the two important works "Récepte véritable" (first 1563) and "Discours admirables" (first 1580), all of great rarity. "Palissy first became famous through his technique for making a 'rustic' enameled earthenware, a skill which gained him the appointment of 'inventeur des rustiques figulines du roy'. His 'Discours admirables' gives Palissy's views on a wide array of subjects, the most significant being those on hydrology and paleontology. He recognized the relation between fossils and both living and extinct species, and was one of the first to hold a reasonably correct view of the process of petrification" (Norman 1629 for his "Discours"). Very Good.

        Elementa Jurisprudentiae, Definitionibus, Regulis & Sententiis.

      1636 - The First English Writer on Jurisprudence Zouch Richard [1590-1661]. Elementa Jurisprudentiae, Definitionibus, Regulis & Sententiis Selectioribus Juris Civilis, Illustrata; Accesserunt Descriptiones Juris & Judicii, Sacri, Militaris, Et Maritimi. Amsterdam: Sumptibus Joh. Nevilsoni, [1652]. [x], 439 pp. Four parts with continuous pagination and divisional title pages. 12mo. (5" x 2-3/4"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, lettering piece and gilt ornaments to spine. Light toning to text. A Handsome copy. * Third edition, an issue of the Elzevier edition of 1652 with a cancel title page. One of England's greatest civilians, Zouch was an advocate of Doctors' Commons, Judge of the High Court of Admiralty and Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford. He published treatises on a broad range of legal topics and is best known for his contributions to international law. He is equally important as the first English writer to publish works on jurisprudence. Elementa Jurisprudentiae is an ambitious general study that lays out a general theory of general principles applicable to all branches and systems of legal science. The second, third and fourth parts, Descriptio Juris et Judicii Sacri; Ad Quam Leges, Quae Religionem, Et Piam Causam Respiciunt, Referuntur, Descriptio Juris & Judicii Militaris; Ad Quam Leges, Quae rem Militarem et Ordinem Personarum and Descriptio Juris et Judicii Maritimi; Ad Quam quae Navigationem et Negotiationem Maritimam Respiciunt, Referuntur are distinct essays on topics in English ecclesiastical law, the laws of war and military discipline and laws concerning ships and sea-borne cargo. The latter two essays also deal with international law. The first two editions were published in Oxford in 1629 and 1636. The following two editions, with different additional contents, were issued in Holland in 1652 and 1665. According to Willems, some copies of this title were printed by other printers, some with cancel title pages, others with counterfeit Elzevier title pages.

        De morbo strangulatorio opus.

      Rome, L. Grignanus, 1636 - 8vo (165 x 103 mm), pp 160 [16, including terminal blank]; some thin wormtracks and small marginal wormholes, touching occasional letters, otherwise a very attractive, crisp copy in contemporary vellum.First edition of this extremely rare work on asthma and related bronchial diseases. Cleti discusses the history of 'the strangulating illness', its symptoms, and different means of alleviation and treatment.Cleti was a Roman physician, but is unknown to the standard medical biographies. He is the author of at least three other medical books, one of which is on pleurisy, so he evidently took a special interest in respiratory illnesses.BL 17th-century Italian Books p 241; Wellcome 6859 (Supplement); Piantanida et al., Autori Italiani del '600 1880; OCLC records Wellcome, University of Chicago, and National Library of Medicine

        Kitab ‘Aja’ib al-Maqdur fi Akhbar Timur.) Ahmedis Drabsiadae Vitae et Rerum Gestarum Timuri, qui vulgo Tamerlanes Dicitur, Historia.

      Lugduni Batavorum, Leiden 1636 - 448 pages of Arabic text + 4 pages (foreword in Latin), contemporary full vellum, slightly soiled cover, occasional mild foxing in the text. Two small closed marginal tears not affecting the text. Lacking half title. Title in Latin and Arabic printed in red and black with nice woodcut border by C. van Sichem. Editor’s foreword with border printed in blue, text within borders. Extremely rare. First Arabic edition (not translation) of this historical work by Ahmad Ibn Arabsah (1392-1450), describing the conquests of Timur (Tamerlane) in the 14th century and the conditions under his successors. The Syrian author (died in Damascus 854/1450), who was captured with his mother and brother by Timur’s forces in Damascus in 803/1400, was deported to Samarqand, where he studied theology and philology and gained a thorough knowledge of Turkish and Persian (he translated Arabic books into Persian at the court of Sultan Muhammad Othman). He completed this work in 841/1437-8 when he returned to Damascus. It contains first hand observations of unparalleled frankness, showing Timur as an oppressive tyrant - a depiction which contrasted vividly with European views of his character prior to this work. In the 16th century, Timur was made famous in the English-speaking world through the English playwright Christopher Marlowe’s play "Tamburlaine" (1590). Like other Renaissance writers and scholars, Marlowe’s information on Timur derived indirectly from a letter by the Italian humanist, Jacopo Poggio, published in his Oratoris et Philosophi Opera in Basel in 1538. Poggio’s admiration for Timur derived from and supported the notion that not only classical figures, such as Alexander, but also contemporary leaders were capable of great achievement and conquest. The origin of this work is based on an Arabic manuscript which was completed in 1437-1438 and is still preserved at Leiden University library, Holland, and contains many notes in Golius’s hand. The work was edited and prefaced by Jacob Golius who used this text extensively for his lectures and intended to publish a supplementary volume with a translation and commentary, but the notes found among his papers at his death thirty years later were not ready to be published. "An interesting feature of the book is the use of blue ink for the printing of the word 'Tamerlanis' (between two red lines) on the half-title, as well as for one typographical ornament on leaf 3 recto" (Smitskamp). A French translation by Pierre Vattier appeared in 1658, after he had also translated Erpenius’s edition of the Historia Saracenica.

        Thesaurus Arabico-Syro-Latinus.

      Typis Sac. Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, Rome 1636 - [6], 447 pp, [1], [43], [1], 2 blank leaves, 70 [i.e. 65] Index Alphabeticus; handsomely printed in Roman, Syriac and Arabic fonts throughout. Fitted in Slipcase. An Arabic-Syriac-Latin word list arranged by subject, based on the Arabic-Syriac vocabulary compiled in the 11th century by Elias bar Shinaya, metropolitan of Nisibis (see Haywood, p.122). Obicini, (or Obizzino) 1585– 1632, was head of the Franciscan convent in Aleppo between 1613 and 1619. On his return to Rome he successfully proposed that a college be established in the convent of St Peter in Montorio for missionaries preparing to evangelise in the East to learn Arabic and he was appointeteacher of Arabic by the Propaganda Fide. Obicini was also responsible for the supervision of the Propaganda Fide’s type. His Thesaurus Arabico-Syro-Latinus was prepared for publication after his death by Dominico Germano de Silesia. It was a rather carelespiece of printing, with some words printed upside down and the errata list occupying 17 pages. ‘The Syriac types are the 20pt Maronite types, and the Arabic Granjon’s arabe du Kitab al-Bustan. In the headings the Arabic Bible types are used’ (Smitskamp). The Propaganda Fide press printed alphabets of most of the languages spoken by those whom the catholic church saw as potential converts. Alphabets soon led to missals, grammars and dictionaries. An early book by the Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide (OCLC lists only 6 earlier ones). OCLC lists 5 copies but only 3 in the U.S. (Harvard, N.Y.P.L., and St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Overbrook, Pennsylvania). Ebert 14920. Not in the Blackmer sale and not in the Atabey sale.

        SOURCE FOR BROWNE'S PSEUDODOXIA EPIDEMICA: Farfalloni de gli antichi historici. Notati dall'abbate don Secondo Lancellotti da Perugia Accademico Insensato, Affidato, et Humorista. Autore dell'Hoggidi'. Dal sig. dottore Ottavio Lancellotti suo fratello mandati in luce.

      Venice: Giacomo Sarzina 1636 - FIRST EDITION. Octavo; 8, 512pp. In contemporary full limp vellum (spine somewhat darkened, binding lightly worn with minor loss to foot of spine), lacks free endpapers, small obliterated contemporary ink inscription to title page, small paper flaw to title page affecting three letters, otherwise clean with ony the lightest of sporadic spots and stains. Printer's device to title page and occasional decorative capitals and headpieces. Attractively produced first edition of Lancellotti's "Whimsies of the Ancient Historians" debunking the more fanciful assertions and beliefs of the ancients. The work is listed in the early 18th century auction catalogue for the sale of Sir Thomas Browne's library, and Browne cites Farfalloni as a source in his Pseudodoxia Epidemica or Vulgar Errors (see image 5). The concept and purpose of both works - making "enquiries into very many received tenets and commonly presumed truths" - are unsurprisingly similar. Very good copy of an attractive edition.

      Amsterdam: Jodocus Hondius, 1636. unbound. very good. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 14" x 15.75" Map of the Danish island of Fyn, as well as Langeland and Ærø. English text on back describes the area. From the "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae" (Mercator-Hondius Atlas). Plate was originally made by Mercator and later added to by Hondius. Some aging around margins and minor chipping to left edge and corners. Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

      - Den Zeusen Beesem 1062; Knuttel 5221. Two dialogues discussing Dutch warships capturing Dunkirk privateers and merchant ships. Dunkirkers, serving the Spanish Navy, were a major threat to Dutch trade and shipping, taking hundreds of ships during the Dutch revolt. The present pamphlet discusses several commanders of warships, including the Zeeland captains Jacob Pense, Gerrit Verhagen, Jan Evertsen de Jonge and Jacob Verhelle, who captured no fewer than 30 Dunkirk ships in just one year. Jan Evertsen de Jonge was the son of the famous admiral Jan Evertsen, who had captured the infamous Duinkerk privateer Jacques Colaert in 1636 and later fought several battles in the first and second Anglo-Dutch war. The pamphlet concludes with a list of captured ships mentioned in the text. It seems to have been written to advocate the fitting out of more warships to protect Dutch (or more particularly Zeeland) trade.Spine damaged, otherwise in very good condition.

The engraver Jacques de Bie (1581 - 1640) published a number of dictionaries, checklists, or anthologies of various of medals, coins, portraits etc. In an online paper entitled "Collection, conviction, and contemplation; or, Picturing coins in early modern books, ca. 1550-1700," Professor Brian W. Ogilvie comments, "De Bie wanted to do for the French monarchy what sixteenth century antiquarians had done for the Roman emperors: produce a series of metallic portraits and reverses that would illustrate the kings of France, from Charlemagne to the present, and their noble deeds. Faced with a distinct lack of such medals, especially for the Carolingians and early Capetians, De Bie made them up, covering up his inventions (not entirely successfully) by emphasizing the research he had conducted to find them. De Bie's text told one story, but his engravings sometimes told another: he was honest enough to include the real source of a picture (for instance, a tomb completed centuries after its occupant's inhumation) while portraying it in the form of a medal."

        Traduccion latina que ha hecho el Doctor Señonqui en Lengua Castellana, de un tratado que compuso en Latina Guillermo Vandevoy. E. C. D. D.

      Impressa en Valanson (Madrid?), por Jacome Corifio, 1636. - in-4. 99ff. (dont 98 numérotés). (1f.blanc). Plein vélin souple de l'époque. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage curieux de Juan de Quiñones, magistrat madrilène de la cour de Philippe IV. Ce violent réquisitoire contre les Français est présenté sous la forme d'un traité historique qui disserte sur les mœurs françaises, les relations de l'Espagne et de la France depuis le 14e siècle, ainsi que sur la supposée alliance des Français avec les Turcs pendant le siècle d'or. C'est un livre obscur à plusieurs égards. D'une part, le lieu d'impression et le nom de l'imprimeur ne sont répertoriés nulle part et paraissent avoir été inventés. D'autre part, certaines sources attribuent l'ouvrage au médecin hollandais Guillaume Van Den Bossche, mais cette hypothèse semble être erronée et le nom de Vandevoy indiqué au titre paraît n'être qu'une fantaisie. L'ouvrage contient deux curieuses gravures à l'eau forte de Francisco Navarro, graveur espagnol au sujet duquel Bénézit indique qu'on connaît de lui "des planches d'armoiries parues en 1632 à Madrid et le titre pour un ouvrage militaire publié en 1642. Il a également gravé des titres pour divers ouvrages d'architecture et des portraits d'Horace, Perse et Juvénal". Juan de Quiñones a laissé plusieurs ouvrages remarquables, tous écrits en espagnol, parmi lesquels un traité sur les sauterelles (1620), un discours contre les gitans (1631), une relation des éruptions du Vésuve (1632) et un curieux traité de minéralogie sur le charbon (1634). Le présent volume est une véritable rareté. Nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'un seul exemplaire dans les collections américaines (à l'Hispanic Society of America de New York, cf. N.U.C.) et seulement deux exemplaires dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (Biblioteca Nacional et Biblioteca de Oviedo). Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 245389.

        Gemmarum et Lapidum historia.

      Leyde, J. Maire, 1636. ____ Seconde édition; la première augmentée des commentaires d'Adrian Toll. Ouvrage de la plus grande importance pour l'histoire de la minéralogie et de la gemmologie. Boodt a tenté la premier de classer les minéraux. Il en connaît près de 600 et décrit leurs propriétés, leur valeur et leur usage médical. Illustré par 43 bois gravés dans le texte et 2 tableaux dépliants. Les gravures montrent des pierres, des cristaux, des machines pour tailler et polir les pierres précieuses et même des fossiles. Provenance : signature de l'époque sur la page de titre : "Ex catalogo librorum Eberbardi (?)". Quelques passages soulignés par la même plume. Coins usés, quelques feuillets légèrement brunis. Bon exemplaire dans l'ensemble. DSB 2, 293. Ward, Carrozzi 252. ***** Second edition. Published after De Boodt's death, this is the first one with Leiden physician Adrian Toll's commentaries. Illustrated by 43 woodcuts in text. "In his Gemmarum et Lapidum Historia, Boodt made the first attempt at a systematic description of minerals, dividing the minerals into great and small, rare and common, hard and soft, combustible and incombustible, transparent and opaque. He uses a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). Boodt criticizes some of the views of Aristotle, Pliny, Paracelsus, and others. He also mentions atoms. He enumerates about 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations, and medical applications. There are also tables of values of diamonds according to their size and a short description of the polishing of precious stones. Boodt cites nineteen authors and, besides the minerals known to him, gives a list of 233 minerals whose names he knows from Pliny and Bartholomeus Anglicus, among others." D.S.B. 2, 293. Contemporary vellum. In-8. [177 x 108 mm] Collation : (8), 576, (22) pp., 2 tabl. dépl. hors-texte. Vélin à rabats. (Reliure de l'époque.).
