        Le Vite de' più eccellenti Pittori, Scultori et Architetti. In questa nuova edizione diligentemente riviste, ricorrette, accresciute d'alcuni ritratti & accresciute di postille nel margine. Al Serenissimo Ferdinando II Granduca di Toscana

      presso gli Heredi di Evangelista Dozza, 1647. In - 4° antico (238x170mm), pp. (18), 432 (le prime due parti dell'opera in numerazione continua e in un unico volume), legatura settecentesca m. pelle con titolo, filetti e fregi floreali in oro su dorso a nervi. Antiporta allegorica incisa su rame da Bloemaert su invenzione del Canini (alla quale si ispira il Livaldini per il suo sonetto), mancante alla quasi totalità degli esemplari. La vita di ogni artista reca in principio, a tre quarti di pagina, un ritratto xilografico dell'artista in questione riprodotto fedelmente sugli stessi legni dell'edizione Giunti del 1568, per un totale di oltre 90 incisioni xilografiche. Finalini ornati e figurati su legno, iniziali ornate ed istoriate. Dedica a stampa (datata da Bologna, 21 marzo 1647) dell'editore del testo, Carlo Manolessi, al Granduca di Toscana, Ferdinando II, in principio del primo volume, ed altra avvertenza del Manolessi ai lettori. Al cominciamento dello stesso volume, l'ode di Giovan Pietro Bellori "Sopra l'Ara dell'Eternità" ed il sonetto di Giuseppe Livaldini "Sopra il Frontespizio del Vasari disegnato dal Signor Gio. Angelo Canini". Cerniere restaurate, mancanze marginali alla prima carta di dedica, alle pp. 37 - 38 e 373 - 374; numerose pp. posposte, aloni marginali ad alcune pp. In buono stato complessivo. Il solo primo volume della terza edizione in assoluto dell'opera, la seconda figurata (la narrazione giunge qui sino a Luca Signorelli). Importante riedizione secentesca ampliata, di una delle pietre miliari della storia della storiografia artistica. L'impressione, estremamente pregiata, riproduce la lezione testuale e le silografie (riutilizzando i legni originali) della prima edizione figurata, la giuntina del 1568 (la prima assoluta è del 1550), ma con l'aggiunta di centinaia di note marginali e di una mezza dozzina di ritratti del tutto nuovi, sempre incisi su legno e nello stile iconografico di quelli originali della stampa giuntina. "...The first modern history of art. It has made Vasari's name immortal...Vasari's excellent sense of narrative...and lively style combined with his wide personal acquaintance makes his "Lives" a vital contribution to our understanding of the character and psychology of the great artists of the Renaissance...It became a model for subsequent writing on the history of art and was the forerunner to the remarkable series of studies on the various Italian schools of painting produced in Italy during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries" (P.M.M.). Il capolavoro vasariano abbraccia la storia delle arti in Italia da Cimabue sino al manierismo tardocinquecentesco, costituendone la principale fonte documentaria, destinata a fissare le linee portanti della storiografia (con la preminenza conferita a Firenze rispetto agli altri centri di produzione) e della critica artistica sino a Bernard Berenson; le "Vite", scrive Benedetto Croce, "sono solcate da lampi quali non rifulsero giammai nell'antichità". Interessante osservare come qui ricorra per la prima volta il sostantivo "rinascita" riferito alla periodizzazione artistica. Manca alla Vinciana e al Cicognara. Cfr. Moreni, II, 430; Gamba, 1725 (cita indirettamente questa ristampa attraverso le parole di Luigi Lanzi); Brunet, V, 1096; Graesse, VII, 264, note; Sidney Churchill, "Bibliografia Vasariana", passim. Per la prima edizione, Schlosser Magnino, p. 332 e P.M.M., n. 88. Italiano

        VII Opera Misericordiae piis animis dicat Matthias Bolzetta de Cadorinis.

      1647. Patavii, Matthias Bolzetta De Cadorinis, 1647. Sette incisioni in rame più una di frontespizio. Rarissima collezione - completa - tratta da originali di Tiziano (perduti), indicato in lastra come autore delle opere da cui sono tratte le calcografie. Ogni scena, incisa in rame all'acquaforte, misura mm 154x120 circa, più ampi margini bianchi (mm. 320x215 i fogli). Maria Agnese Chiari nel catalogo "Incisioni da Tiziano", Venezia, 1982 attribuisce la raccolta a Hans Heinrich Schweitzer, anche se in due lastre a noi risulta leggibile la firma "Snizer f." e "Gio. Snizer f.". Anche il Museo Correr di Venezia - nel cui catalogo on - line siamo riusciti a rintracciare solo 3 delle 8 incisioni - le attribuisce a Schweitzer. A proposito di queste immagini cfr. l'asta Sotheby's "Arts of Europe", Londra, 3 dicembre 2013, lotto 138 (un boccale d'argento del Seicento) nella cui descrizione sono menzionate queste incisioni: "The barrel of the tankard is engraved with a continuous scene which skillfully combines at least two different images which are after lost works by Titian. The Titian - derived images: The clothing of the poor and part of the feeding scene, which straddle the tankard's handle are found with the same Latin inscription, in a 1647 Paduan publication by Mathias Bolzetta de Cadorinis, VII opera misericordiae piis animis dicat. A contemporary Swiss artist Hans Heinrich Schweitzer may have been the engraver of the images in the 1647 publication. See: Patricia Fortini Brown, Private lives in Renaissance Venice, Princeton, 2004, p. 211". Ottime condizioni di conservazione.

        Document signed ("Richard Lovelace"), appointing Isaac Hunt as Lovelace's attorney for the sale of Mungeam farm to John Mungeam of Smarden

      1647. Pen and ink on one parchment membrane (210 x 290 mm), parchment tag with armorial wax seal, three witness signatures on the dorse, including the poet's brother Dudley Lovelace. Tear in top left margin not affecting text, small portion of seal missing. In a custom red morocco-backed folding-box. Pen and ink on one parchment membrane (210 x 290 mm), parchment tag with armorial wax seal, three witness signatures on the dorse, including the poet's brother Dudley Lovelace. Rare Signature of Richard Lovelace. Extremely rare example of the signature of cavalier poet Richard Lovelace (1617-1657) - the only known privately owned example of his hand. Save for his "To Althea, from Prison", of which contemporary manuscript copies are known, Lovelace's work achieved limited popularity in his time and there is a corresponding derth of manuscript material in his hand. Only one complete manuscript in Lovelace's hand - a petition to the House of Commons - is known to exist. His signature appears on a series of 13 documents, of which this is one, relating to land transactions in Kent. CELM LoR 63.

        Christ Dying and Drawing Sinners to Himselfe

      London. 1st Edition. Very Good. FIRST EDITION (1647) IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING OF AN IMPORTANT WORK IN THE THEOLOGY OF SAMUEL RUTHERFORD. Rutherford's Christ Dying and Drawing Sinners to Himselfe was published in 1647, the last year he served in the London Assembly. "In th[o]se four years he participated fully in the Assembly's debates over church government and published a number of major works … Rutherford's main responsibility in London was to advance the presbyterian cause … In England, he earned a place in one of Milton's sonnets as a prime defender of Scottish presbyterianism (DNB)." "Rutherford's writings during the London years provide a significant commentary of the theology of the Westminster Confession and Catechisms. In Christ Dying and Drawing Sinners to Himselfe Rutherford elaborately scrutinizes the Antinomian notion that the law has no obligation for the Christian" (Dictionary of Scottish Church History and Theology). For Rutherford and the Puritans, "the stress [was] upon the individual's experience of faith. Later in Christ Dying, Rutherford seems to make just this point" (Guy M. Richard, in The Supremacy of God in the Theology of Samuel Rutherford). First edition, with handwritten ownership details of William Bernard Sears, master wood carver, on rear endpapers. London: printed by J[ohn]. D[awson]. for Andrew Crooke at the Green-Dragon in Pauls Church-yard, 1647. Small quarto (144x185mm), contemporary full calf. [38] 1-598 + errata. Owner signature on title. Rear endpapers and blank with early notations. Burn holes on B2, C2-D1, going through a couple of words on each page), one gathering (kkk) with uniform browning; ggg2 and ggg3 with marginal tear (affecting a few words on ggg2); some margins with light dampstaining. Binding with modest general wear including chip at base of spine. A handsome copy, complete and unrestored in contemporary binding.

        Relaçam verdadeira do alevantamento de Napoles, e de Sicilia, com a copia dos capitulos acordados entre o Visorey, & Povo de Napoles.

      (Lisbon), [Colophon] por D.[omingos] Lopes Roza, 1647?. - 4°, later plain grey wrappers (minor soiling), old manuscript title on front cover, text-block edges rouged. Caption title. Four-line woodcut initial. A bit rubbed on final page, but overall in very good condition. Engraved bookplate of Victor d'Avila Perez. (6 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this rare account of a 1647 rebellion in Naples led by Masaniello (Tommaso Aniello), a fisherman, against the rule of Philip IV of Spain. The rebellion briefly created an independent Neapolitan republic, which lasted only until 1648 but remains a celebrated moment in the history of Naples. Not surprisingly, few if any accounts of this rebellion were printed in Spanish dominions. This one appeared in Portugal, which had declared its independence of Spanish rule in 1640 and was still at war with Spain. The relevance of all this for the Portuguese war of independence is summed up on f. A4v.This @Relaçam begins with a recap of the history of Naples and Sicily under French and Spanish rule (including the Sicilian Vespers), briefly describes the recent rebellion in Sicily (ff. A1v-A2r), then moves on to a detailed account of the rebellion in Naples (ff. A2r-A4v). The central characters are Masaniello and the viceroy of Naples, Rodrigo Ponce de León, fourth Duke of Arcos, but the names and actions of many others are also included. On ff. A4v-A6v is the full text of the agreement between the viceroy and the people of Naples, dated Naples July 12, 1647. In it the viceroy grants Neapolitans limited self-government, promises restrictions on taxes, and exempts them from the crime of @lèse majesté. Masaniello and his companions promise to march to the church of Sta. Maria de Constantinopola and lay down their arms.In the 1640s, Spain was dealing with rebellions in Portugal, the Netherlands, and Catalonia, and was embroiled in the Thirty Years' War. In Sicily and Naples (Europe's second-largest city), the hefty taxes imposed to raise money for war expenses had caused much unrest.*** Arouca R395. @Exposição bibliografica da Restauração 1229.

        Annales des choses plus mémorables arrivées tant en Angleterre qu'ailleurs, sous les règnes de Henry VIII, Edovard VI & Marie

      1647 - de (VIII), 500, (2) pp. Paris, P. Rocolet, 1647, in-4, de (VIII), 500, (2) pp., plein vélin de l'époque, titre en manuscrit sur le dos, étui moderne, Première édition en français, traduite de l'anglais par le sieur de Loigny. La page de titre porte la signature de François de La Rochefoucauld, auteur célèbre des 'Maximes' (1665), dont Voltaire dira "C'est un des ouvrages qui contribuèrent le plus à former le goût de la nation, et à lui donner un esprit de justesse et de précision. Il accoutuma à penser et à renfermer des pensées dans un tour vif, précis et délicat." Inspiré par les oeuvres de son ami William Camden, surtout par la première partie de son histoire du règne d'Elisabeth 1er, et déçu par les ouvrages existants sur le sujet, Godwin décida d'écrire sa propre histoire du 16e siècle en Angleterre : "Calling for a complete national history based on the sort of erudition that had marked 'Britannia' [par Camden], he remarked that 'our antiquaries may justly be taxed of sloth'" (ODNB).

        GLI ARTIFICIOSI E CURIOSI MOTI SPIRITALI DI HERONE

      Bologna: Carlo Zenero, 1647. Second Edition in Italian n. Following the first edition of 1589, this is the second (and only obtainable early) edition in Italian of one of the most popular books on ancient technology of the Renaissance, highlighted with fascinating woodcuts of inventions that include the first steam-powered engine. "Pneumatics," as this book is commonly known, is the work of the first century Greek mathematician Hero (or Heron) of Alexandria, who here provides detailed instructions for building machines and practical scientific instruments to demonstrate his ideas. As Brittanica observes, the work "describes a menagerie of mechanical devices, or "toys": singing birds, puppets, coin-operated machines, a fire engine, a water organ, and his most famous invention, the aeolipile . . . . This last device consists of a sphere mounted on a boiler by an axial shaft with two canted nozzles that produce a rotary motion as steam escapes." Like other Greek classics, "Pneumatics" arrived in Europe in the 15th century via Constantinople the only major city of the ancient world to survive to the Middle Ages without being conquered and sacked. Its libraries, with their holdings of ancient GReek manuscripts, avoided the fate of other institutions in Alexandria and elsewhere. Hero's works were among those brought to Italy by the great Greek scholar Cardinal Basilios Bessarion (1403-72), who donated his substantial library to the Republic of Venice, the most stable Italian city-state, where it became the foundation of the Library of Saint Mark's. Aldus Manutius began printing Greek classics in the 1490s, but Hero did not make it into print until 1575, when Federico Commandino's Latin translation of "Pneumatics" was published in Urbino and, according to scholar James Bradburne, "the explosion of interest in Hero';s 'Pneumatics' begins in earnest. . . . Courts thirsty for innovation vied with one another in creating spectacles, pageants and gardens filled with hydraulic and mechanical wonders." While this book is not remarkably rare in one early edition or another, contemporary copies as inviting as the present one seldom appear in the marketplace.. 216 x 152 mm. (8 1/2 x 6"). 4 p.l., 103 pp., [4] leaves.Edited and translated into Italian by Giambattista Aleotti. Second Edition in Italian. Contemporary limp vellum, flat spine with ink titling, lower cover neatly ruled in ink with an enclosed initial "P" and the words "Scudi uno." Engraved armorial device on title page and 89 woodcut figures in the text. Title page with early inscription obscured by ink scribbles, occasional neat annotations in an early hand, pencil drawing of an heraldic device on rear free endpaper. Riccardi I, 21; Mortimer Italian 230, note; Brunet III, 129; Graesse III, 258. Vellum lightly soiled, two-inch tear to front pastedown, three leaves with a couple of small ink spots to text (nothing obscured), other trivial imperfections, but a fine copy--the text clean, fresh, and rather bright, and in a well-preserved binding. Following the first edition of 1589, this is the second (and only obtainable early) edition in Italian of one of the most popular books on ancient technology of the Renaissance, highlighted with fascinating woodcuts of inventions that include the first steam-powered engine.

        Arte de la lengua moxa, con su vocabulario, y cathecismo.

      The first printed grammar, dictionary, and catechism in the language of the Moxo Indians of the lowlands of south-central Beni, a region of Bolivia. The language is a member of the Arawakan family. Marbán (1647-1713), a native of Spain, was admitted to Society of Jesus in 1663 and sent to Peru in 1675, there to spend rest of his life among the Moxo Indians of Upper Peru (now Bolivia). 1701 is often given as the date of publication of this work, but since the last license to print is dated the middle of December, 1701, and the caption title of the "Cartilla, y doctrina cristina" is 1702, a publication date of 1701 is impossible.The notably variable and uneven printing here, sometimes very light and sometimes very dark, is typical of Peruvian printing's low-grade state in this era. Representing perhaps a particularly bad day, a compositor who had missed a phrase on p. 83 => inserted it in tiny type along the outer margin!

Handsome period-style quarter calf over cloth, lettering piece, blind ornaments and gilt-ruled raised bands to spine. Negligible light rubbing to boards, some fading to spine. Title page printed in red and black. Moderate toning to text, occasional faint dampspotting, faint dampstaining to margins in a few places, internally clean. A very nice copy. * First edition. The work by an anonymous author describes the practice of the courts, the forms of writs and an explanation of law terms as they existed during the reign of Edward I. Selden brought this ancient treatise to the public's attention and was instrumental in its publication. While Bracton earns the highest praise as the father of legal learning, Fleta earns a share of it for the illustrations he offered to some of the obscurities found in Bracton. Selden's appended dissertation (pp.453-553) contains many interesting observations about Bracton, Britton, Fleta, and Thornton "and shows what use was made of the Imperial law in England whilst the Romans governed here, at what time it was introduced into this nation, what use was formerly made of it, how long it continued, and when the use of it totally ceased in the King's Courts at Westminster": Bridgman, A Short View of Legal Bibliography 87.

      Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 308; Tiele, Bibl. 952. Second edition of Johann Saar's extensive account of his travels in the Dutch East Indies, the Moluccas and Ceylon. After living in Batam, Batavia and the Moluccas in the service of the Dutch East Indian army, Saar moved to Ceylon in 1647 and most of the descriptions refer to that country. The book was first published in 1662. Besides Saar's own account, the publisher included several contemporary accounts by Andersen, Iverson, Nieuhof, Mandelslo and others, to give Saar's account more credibility. The illustrations underline the diversity of the narrative, and depict besides some beautiful views of Ceylon, pearl fishery, elephant hunting, and a view of Middelburg (Zealand). Owner's stamp on back of portrait, severely browned (as usual), some leaves with faint waterstains, not affecting the text, otherwise in good condition.

        Syntagma anatomicum. Locis plurimis auctum, emendatum, novisque iconibus diligenter exornatum.

      P. Frambotti, Padua 1647 - 4to (250 x 195 mm). [16], 274, [14] pp, including additional engraved title page depicting the anatomical theater at Padua, and 24 engraved copperplates (one outside pagination). Contemporary half tanned leather (extremities worn, corners of boards heavily scuffed), paper shelf label to spine. Internally only very little browned, faded dampstain to gutter of a few leaves. Extensive ink marginalia in a neat early hand throughout. Provenance: D.G.Seidel (signature on title-page); Library of the Count of Solms-Wildenfels (armorial bookplate inscribed "Comes de Solms" to front pastedown). Internally a fine, crisp copy. ---- NLM/Krivatsy 12328; Waller 9931; Osler 4166; Choulant-Frank p.243; Roberts & Tomlinson, p.236-239. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION (after the octavo first edition of 1641) with plates by Giovanni Georgi. Remarkably, the first edition was not illustrated, reflecting the reality that it was still possible to sell books on anatomy at this time without reference to images. Notably, the copperplates in this first illustrated edition bear little or no relationship to the powerfully influential woodcuts of Vesalius' Fabrica. In spite of its aesthetic limitations, Vesling's book found a ready market, and was reissued numerous times and translated into the main European languages including English. The plates were "intended for the commonest needs but are mostly original engravings and represent some organs of the human body more correctly than their predecessors. They were very popular at the time of their appearance and have been frequently re-engraved" (Choulant-Frank, p.243). This true first edition is scarcer than previosuly assumed, as most copies belong to a generally unsuspected counterfeit edition printed by the atlas publisher Johannes Janssonius of Amersterdam (F. Oyens, Jan Janssen as counterfeiter and pirate, Quaerendo vol. IX, 1979, p.351). In December 1632, Johann Wesling (1598¿1649) was appointed professor of anatomy and surgery at Padua University. In 1638, he was appointed to the chair of botany, and left the chair of surgery but retained the chair of anatomy. Wesling was born in Minden, Westphalia. His Catholic family had probably left Vienna to escape religious persecution. (A. Porzionato et al., The Anatomical School of Padua. The Anatomical Record, Vol. 295, no. 6, 2012, p.908).

Ownership inscription ("William [?] Gable Altoona, Pa. June 1916") on front fly leaf. Light toning, minor soiling. Very good. "A prose satire of the times, which instantly became popular and will always associate [Ward's] name with early American literature..." - Church. Ward came to New England in 1634 and was appointed minister at Agawam, now Ipswich, Massachusetts. Soon after, he compiled the first code of laws established in New England, which was adopted but never printed in book form, as John Cotton's code was mistaken for Ward's. This was his next literary effort, containing many New England references. The work was extremely popular, going through five editions in the first year of its publication. Scarce. SABIN 101323.

        A pair of prints of early-16th century Tulip varieties

      [Frankfurt or Amsterdam, 1647. Copper engravings, with expert modern hand-colouring. A fine highly decorative pair of 17th-century tulip portraits from Sweert's 'Florilegium' The Dutch florist Emanuel Sweert produced his 'Florilegium' at the behest of the Emperor Rudolf II of Austria. Six editions were published in Frankfurt (1) or Amsterdam (5) between 1612 and about 1647. The present pair of Tulip prints are amongst the most beautiful of the images produced for the 'Florilegium': the flowers of 24 varieties are shown with brief explanatory text beneath each one, all beautifully arranged in ranks that echo the patterned precision with which they were grown by 17th-century gardeners. Tulips today are highly appreciated for the joyful range of colours and the elegant shapes they present in early spring. At the time when the present images were printed, Tulips were the main horticultural obsession. Their growing was essentially a pastime for the rich and powerful. The search for new varieties (particularly the bi-colour or 'broken' varieties) reached its zenith in Amsterdam in the 1620s and 1630s with a sort of 'dot-com' speculation and investment frenzy when individual bulbs fetched more than a medium-sized house.

        L'historia delle guerre civili d'Inghilterra tra le due case di Lancastro, e Iorc. Scritta in tre volumi, dal cavaliere Gio. Francesco Biondi, gentilhuomo della Camera privata della Serenissima Maesta della Gran Bretagna

      Carlo Zenero 1647 - 3 voll. in un unico tomo in-4 ant. (210x145 mm.), pp. 56, 230, 2; 44, 356; 16, 203, con 3 grandi marche tipogr. incise in calcogr. ai front. Iniz. xilogr. Testo di lingua. Fioriture e qualche alone secco. Legatura in piena perg. coeva con integrazione di pergamena antica al dorso per circa 1/4. Prima edizione italiana, definita dal Gamba molto rara. Questa storia doveva progredire oltre il regno di Enrico VII, ma l'autore, che l'aveva principiata dall'anno 1377, fu costretto ad arrestarsi all'anno 1509 poiché, avendo esaltato eccessivamente il potere regio (così riferisce Apostolo Zeno), fu espulso dall'Inghilterra. Giulio Strozzi definì quest'opera "assai elegante e ben tessuta, importantissima"; nel complesso, si può dire che piacque molto al suo tempo, tanto da valere all'autore una pensione annua di 200 lire sterline e il titolo di Cavaliere e Gentiluomo della Camera Privata del re d'Inghilterra.

        Die Vier Tage Einer Newen und Lustigen Schäfferey von der schönen Coelinden und deroselben ergebenen Schäffer Corimbo. (Kupfertitel:) Newe Hirten Lust von dem Schäffer Corimbo und der schönen Hirtin Coelinden. Gestoch. Titel, Titel, 131 nn Bl. Halbpergamentbd im Stil d. Z.

      Dresden, Gimel Bergen Erben, 1647. - Erste vollständige Ausgabe, vorher auszugsweise 1637 in 'Allerhandt lustige, trawrige . Gedichte' erschienen. Die frühen Schäferromane sind ein wichtiges Zeugnis der Entwicklung einer bürgerlich-weltlichen Kultur im 17. Jahrhundert. In ihnen geht es weniger um die Bestätigung eines idealen Seins, sondern mehr um Begründung eines konkreten Selbstverständnisses: Zum ersten Mal in der deutschen Romanliteratur ist privates Erleben für sich zum Gegenstand literarischer Beschreibung geworden. Den absolutistischen Idealen von Tugend, Standhaftigkeit, Größe und Märtyrertum, wie sie sich im höfisch-historischen Roman dokumentieren, wird in der privaten Liebesbegegnung und Lebensbeschreibung ein anderes Credo entgegengesetzt. Damit gehört dieser Roman zu den frühesten literarischen Dokumenten eines neuen Bewusstseins, das sich im 17. Jahrhundert zu entwickeln beginnt und den Roman des 18. Jahrhunderts mit vorbereitet. "Diese Romane erfüllen nicht eine rein gesellschaftliche Aufgabe, sie dienen nicht der Verherrlichung eines hohen Hauses. . Hier liegen die Anfänge der modernen 'Erlebnisdichtung'. Die Erhellung dieses Phänomens wird zu einer Vorgeschichte des bürgerlichen Romans" (Hirsch, Bürgertum und Barock im deutschen Roman, S. 89). Hirsch widmet sich in seiner Abhandlung Brehmes Schäferei gleich nach der etwas älteren "Jüngst-erbaweten Schäfferey" des Schlesiers Schindschersitzky. Beide Romane gehören zu den frühen Schlüsselwerken dieses Genres. Im Leipziger Dichterkreis war Brehme (1613-1667) als Bürgermeister seiner Vaterstadt eine der lebendigsten Erscheinungen. Die Vorrede ist mit seinem Pseudonym "Der Beständige" unterzeichnet, was dazu führte, dass als Autor lange der bereits 1629 verstorbene Friedrich von Drachsdorf angenommen wurde, der diese Bezeichnung als Gesellschaftsnamen in der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft führte (siehe auch die Fehlattributionen bei Bulling 25 und Kroker I 155). – Leichte Gebrauchsspuren, der Kupfertitel gebräunt und außen angeschnitten. Gutes, breitrandiges Exemplar. Sehr selten; kein Exemplar im JAP seit 1950. – VD17 23:281638E; Dünnhaupt 20; Goed. III 67, 20, 2; Hayn/G. I 436. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Three rare editions in one volume, two by Cartesian physicians on medicine and pharmacology, the third on practical chemistry, also with medical applications:Ad 1: First edition of a general introduction to medicine and pharmacology by the Dutch Cartesian physician Cornelis Bontekoe (1647-1685). It reflects the modern scientific method that had made Bontekoe a controversial figure, beginning with matters of chemistry before moving on to medicines derived from minerals, animals and plants, then discussing various ailments. Part 2 comprises a 58-page pharmacopoeia.Ad 2: First edition of a Latin adaptation of a Dutch handbook of practical medicine by the Dutch Cartesian physician, chemist, pharmacologist and entomologist Steven Blankaart (1650-1704). It discusses a wide variety of ailments and their treatment, giving recipes for medicines. Blankaart was an early user of Van Leeuwenhoek's new microscopes, and the blood vessels shown in one of the plates may have been based on microscopic views. Ad 3: Rare third edition of a Latin treatise on practical chemistry by Giovanni Francesco Vigani (ca. 1650-1712) from Verona, who apparently had no university education but was to become professor of Chemistry at Cambridge in 1703.With an early owner's name at the head of the title-page struck through and another written below it by the medical writer Jacob(us) l'Hommart (1666/67-post 1702). All three works somewhat browned, but otherwise in good condition, ad 2 with a small marginal tear in 1 leaf and the foot of the margin of the outer 2 bifolia of its last quire cut 1 to 6 mm short. The binding good. Rare editions spreading what were then considered radical ideas concerning medicine.

      1647. First Printing of Selden's Edition of Fleta and His Ad Fletam Dissertatio Selden, John [1584-1645], Editor. Fleta, Seu Commentarius Juris Anglicani Sic Nuncupatus, Sub Edwardo Rege Primo Seu Circa Annos ab Hinc CCCXL. Ab Anonymo Conscriptus, Atque e Codice Veteri, Autore Ipso Aliquantulum Recentiori, Nunc Primum Typis Editus. Accedit Tractatulus Vetus de Agendi Excipiendique; Formulis Gallicanus, Fet-Assavoir Dictus. Subjungitur Etiam Joan. Seldeni ad Fletam Dissertatio Historica. London: Typis M.F. Prostant Apud Guil. Lee, & Dan. Pakeman, 1647. [8], 64, 63-452, [2], 453-553, [3] pp. Pagination irregular. Complete. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Handsome period-style quarter calf over cloth, lettering piece, blind ornaments and gilt-ruled raised bands to spine. Negligible light rubbing to boards, some fading to spine. Title page printed in red and black. Moderate toning to text, occasional faint dampspotting, faint dampstaining to margins in a few places, internally clean. A very nice copy. $750. * First edition. The work by an anonymous author describes the practice of the courts, the forms of writs and an explanation of law terms as they existed during the reign of Edward I. Selden brought this ancient treatise to the public's attention and was instrumental in its publication. While Bracton earns the highest praise as the father of legal learning, Fleta earns a share of it for the illustrations he offered to some of the obscurities found in Bracton. Selden's appended dissertation (pp.453-553) contains many interesting observations about Bracton, Britton, Fleta, and Thornton "and shows what use was made of the Imperial law in England whilst the Romans governed here, at what time it was introduced into this nation, what use was formerly made of it, how long it continued, and when the use of it totally ceased in the King's Courts at Westminster": Bridgman, A Short View of Legal Bibliography 87.
