        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.

        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).

        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.

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.

        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.

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. .
