Praxeos medicæ idea nova.Amsterdam, Jan Claesz. ten Hoorn, 1685. With the engraved arms of the dedicatee Abraham Johannes Kuffler and 6 engraved illustration plates showing 10 numbered figures. (3) VIGANI, Giovanni Francesco. Medulla chymiæ, variis experimentis aucta, multisq; figuris illustrata."London", [= northern Germany?], "Henry Faithorne & John Kersey" [printer and publisher unknown], 1685. With 3 numbered engraved folding plates, with 6, 6 and 3 figures. 3 works in 1 volume. 8vo. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum.

      Ad 1: STCN (6 copies); Wellcome II, p. 201; ad 2: Krivatsy 1325; STCN (2 copies); ad 3: ESTC R227433? (2 copies); Ferguson , Bib. chem. II, p. 510. 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.

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. Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson 1647. English Short-Title Catalogue R15006.

        FABRIZI [FABRICIUS] d'Acquapendente (Girolamo)

      1647 1257 - Padoue, Franciscum Bolzettam, 1647-1648, , 2 parties en 1 volume in-folio, [32]-204-[2] pages ; et [4]-187-[17] pages 1 portrait et 11 planches (dont 1 en triple) h.t. gravés sur cuivre, basane fauve du XVIIIe siècle, dos à 6 nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre havane, Nouvelle édition des œuvres chirurgicales de l'un des plus grands anatomistes et professeurs de médecine de l'école de Padoue. Fabrizi d'Acquapendente (1537-1619) fut l'élève de Fallope et de Vésale à Padoue où il enseignera lui-même pendant 50 ans. Ses œuvres sont nombreuses et variées (anatomie, embryologie et physiologie), mais elles ont toutes en commun d'être richement illustrées de cuivres d'une grande beauté et d'une précision scientifique irréprochable. L'édition originale de ses œuvres chirurgicales fut publiée en 1617. Fabrizi y décrit des techniques opératoires d'une grande modernité pour l'époque. Ce texte, devenu classique dès sa parution, connut de nombreuses publications jusqu'à la fin du XVIIe siècle. L'ouvrage se divise en deux grandes parties : une première (Pentateuchum chirurgicum) qui aborde toutes les maladies du corps humain nécessitant une intervention chirurgicale (tumeurs et ulcères), et une seconde dont le titre parle de lui-même, Operationes chirurgicas. En tête de cette partie pratique, 9 planches, gravées sur cuivre, représentent un modèle de prothèse pour le corps humain tout entier servant à rectifier des luxations (inventé par Angelus Carlescus), mais aussi des scalpels, des fistules, de nombreux instruments utilisés pour la trépanation, des forceps, des speculums, etc. L'ouvrage est orné en outre de deux portraits, l'un de Fabrizi d'Acquapendente et l'autre, hors texte, du chirurgien padouan Pietro Marchetti (1589-1673). Cette édition comprend aussi une dissertation sur les abus d'utilisation des ventouses dans le traitement des "fièvres putrides" (De Abusu cucurbitularum in febribus putridis). Étiquette ex-libris anciennement arrachée au premier contreplat. Étiquette ex-libris du docteur Maurice Villaret. Bel exemplaire, cependant un peu de court de marges. Une charnière légèrement fendillée. Petite déchirure sans manque à une planche. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(ex-libris gravé de la famille d'Ailly, sans doute de Jacques d'Ailly marquis d'Annebault 1640-1720) Seconde édition de cette coutume de Saintonge. Cosme Béchet était un juriste et écrivain saintongeais né dans la commune des Mathes, au lieu-dit de la Sablière, vers 1620, il est surtout connu pour « L'usance de Saintonge » qui recense les lois et coutumes de la région. La Saintonge ayant la particularité d'être coupée par la ligne de démarcation de la Charente qui sépare les régions de droit coutumier de celle de droit écrit. Le tiers nord étant de droit coutumier et les deux autres tiers de droit écrit. Ainsi la coutume de St jean d'Angély se rapproche de celle du Poitout, alors que l'usance du sud de la Saintonge jusuq'à la Gironde est différent. ¶ Dupin n°844.

Book 8vo. 16.5x 11cm, [xiv],272,[4]p. title page in facsimile, lacks map and frontis plates, bound in contemporary full vellum, incomplete copy of a rare book (cgc) T.P.L. 6322. Alden, Lande 1278, Rich, Sabin. cf. T.P.L. no. 21 for the first english translation; 1850. It is included in Recueil de Voiages au Nord, by J.F. Bernard. q.v. and a new English translation was printed in the Hakluyt Society's Publications no. 18. 1855. This relation, generally regarded as material on Greenland, is rather more an account of regions further west. It is written in the form of a letter to Monsieur de La Mothe le Vayez containing accounts of voyages by Frobisher, Hudson, and Munck. La Peyere secured his material in Demark while a member of the French ambassador's staff, 1644-45, but his work contains many inaccuracies. Captain Johan Munck, an early explorer of the north-west portion of Hudson Bay, is mentioned on the map in this edition. (Wanting in this copy). The unnumbered pages at the beginning of the book are an advertisement describing the map. .

        L'Alcoran de Mahomet. Translaté d'Arabe en François.

      Paris, Antoine de Sommaville, 1647. - 4to. (10), 648 [but: 598], (4) pp. Contemp. full French speckled calf with gilt tooling and title label on spine, dentelles on inner covers. Rare first edition of "the oldest complete translation of the Qur'an into a European vernacular" (Encylopedia of the Qur'an), in a handsome copy. Du Ryer's work served as the basis for further translations of the Qur'an into English, German, Dutch, and Russian, and was instrumental in introducing Europeans to the tenets of the Muslim faith. Du Ryer was a celebrated linguist and had lived in Egypt and Turkey, where he studied classical Arabic. His introduction briefly summarizes the Muslim religion for Christian readers, noting customs such as Ramadan, circumcision, the practice of having up to four wives, the significance of Mecca and Medina, Sufi brotherhoods and wandering ascetics, and finally the Islamic recognition of Jesus as a prophet but not the son of God. A prayer printed in Arabic is included on the verso of leaf e2. - "Du Ryer's translation of the Qur'an [.] became an unparalleled literary success [.] The easy availability of the Qur'an accompanied a newfound interest in the Orient; additionally, du Ryer's translation lacked the polemical tone of previous editions, an orientation which arose mainly in ecclesiastical contexts. Du Ryer used Islamic commentaries such as al-Bayawi's Anwar al-tanzil, the Tafsir al-Jalalayan by al-Mahalli (d. 864/1459) and al-Suyu i (d. 911/1505), or an excerpt from al-Razi's (d. 606/1210) great commentary made by l-Raghi l-Tunisi (d. 715/1315) entitled al-Tanwir fi l-tafsir, quite casually in his translation, merely noting them in the margins. The deprecatory tone present in the introductory chapter, 'Sommaire de la religion des Turcs,' can be understood as an attempt at camouflage (cf. Hamilton and Richard, André du Ryer, 94f)" (Encyclopedia of the Qur'an). - Extremities and joints professionally repaired. Internally fresh and clean, a very good copy with 19th-c. engr. bookplate of Sir Robert Sheffield, Bart., on front pastedown (one of the Sheffield baronets, likely the 4th, 1786-1862).

         [ Watercolour of a wallflower and a double hyacinth, with inchworm moths, larvae and pupae].[Amsterdam, ca. 1700]. Watercolour drawing (38 x 29 cm) on extremely fine white parchment, said to be uterine lamb, showing a wallflower and a double hyacinth with two inchworm moths in the air (2 different species) and two inchworms and two pupae on the leaves and flowers. Framed.

      Reitsma, Maria Sibylla Merian & dochters, ill. 110 (p. 147; a nearly identical drawing of the same wallflower specimen with 1 butterfly); Wettengl, Maria Sibylla Merian 1647-1717, kunstenares en natuuronderzoekster, no. 120 (ill. 44 on p. 85; a similar watercolour including the same wallflower specimen, with no insects). Characteristic original watercolour botanical drawing by Johanna Helena Herolt (1668-post 1721), the eldest daughter of Maria Sibylla Merian and Johann Andreas Graff. It shows a wallflower (Cheiranthus cheiri) and double hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis) with two inchworm moths (Geometriae) in the air, two inchworms and two pupae. She probably drew it in Amsterdam around 1700. Though she still remains in the shadow of her mother, she was a fine flower and insect artist in her own right and there is growing appreciation of her work. Her watercolours, more baroque than her mother's and often with brighter colours, radiate vigour and vivacity: the flowers, painted with intensity in every detail, really come to life. Reitsma, p. 135, notes that the prices for the flower watercolours increased with the number of insects, so the present watercolour must have been unusually expensive. Most of Herolt's work is numbered and the present watercolour is numbered "145"[?] on the back. The published catalogues rarely note the numbers, but we understand the highest number known is 164.Characteristic watercolour in fine state of preservation, with certificate of authenticity from Dr. S. Segal, Amsterdam. Herolt herself may have revised the upper part of the hyacinth.

It "depicts in sixty [here 72] delicately and finely coloured plates exotic leaves flowers, blossoms and fruits, explored by hovering butterflies and moths. Her artistic grouping of the insects amidst the tropical flora, makes this book one of the most beautiful and unusual in the whole range of natural history" (Landwehr). The Dutch-German artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) travelled through Surinam from 1699 to 1701, collecting specimens and making drawings of indigenous insects and plants. Upon return in Amsterdam she elaborated her drawings and notes into the Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium.Ad 2: French translation of the most extensive edition, published in the same year as this edition in the original Dutch, of a pioneering work on the insects of Europe. The work appeared in different forms, the earliest with 100 plates in 1679-1683, following by two with 150 plates, and finally the present one with 184 plates (published in both Dutch and French in 1730). While the plates are much smaller than those of the previous work, they show the same combination of plants and insects and are rendered with the same finesse and beautiful colouring.With bookplate of the Brynkinalt library of Arthur Hill-Trevor (1763-1837), 2nd viscount Dungannon. A few occasional smudges and thumbing in both volumes, and ad 1 with a 2 small tear in the lower margin, some defects in the paper of one leaf and a tiny hole in the lower margin where a quire signature should be.
