      Amsterdam, Louis Elzevier 1648 - In-4 [201 x 153 mm] de (36), 800 pp. Vélin à rabats. (Reliure de l'époque.) Première édition. Van Helmont, (Bruxelles, 1577-1644) célèbre iatrochimiste, s'est appuyé sur la théorie des "archées" de Paracelse pour en finir avec l'enseignement d'Aristote. Il a créé le mot "gaz", démontré le mécanisme de la combustion et découvert l'anhydride carbonique. En physiologie, il a découvert l'importance dans la digestion du suc gastrique et a été le précurseur de la neuro-endocrinologie. Relié à la suite : VAN HELMONT. Opuscula medica inaudita. I. De lithiasi. II. De febribus. III. De humoribus Galeni. IV. De peste. Editio secunda multo emendatior. Amsterdam, Elzevier, 1648. In-4 de (8), 110 pp., 1 f. blanc. 115, (1) pp. 88 pp. Ces opuscules sont reliés habituellement à la suite de l'ouvrage précédent et forment les oeuvres de Van Helmont, publiées par son fils Franciscus Mercurius. Portrait gravé avec les portraits de l'auteur et de son fils dans un encadrement formé de huit écussons. "Helmont, who was himself an alchemist, marks the transition from alchemy to chemistry in the modern sense, and it is not surprising to find that he was much studied by Robert Boyle who adopted many of his ideas. Helmont therefore stands at the very beginning of the chemical revolution which was completed by Lavoisier in the eighteen century." (PMM). "Helmont was one of the founders of biochemistry. He was the first to realize the physiological importance of ferments and gases, and indeed invented the word "gas". He introduced the gravimetric idea in the analysis of urine. Helmont published very little during his life. The above work is a collection of his writings , issued by his son, Franz Mercurius." (G-M). Une restauration au dos de la reliure. Bon exemplaire.

        Eigenhändiger(?) Brief mit Unterschrift

      [Heiligenberg?], "Montags nach Margrethe" [19. Juli 15]07. Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier (Wasserzeichen: Ochsenkopf), ca. 26,5 × 22 cm, 1S. auf 1 Bl. Altersgebräunt, leicht angeschmutzt, kleine Einrisse an Faltstellen und Rändern.. An Bürgermeister und Rat von Überlingen in der Streitsache des Jacob Blaphart von Kierwang. Blaphart, ein Leibeigener von Hausens Dienstherrn ("meinen gnedigen Herren mit lybeigenschaft zuegehoerdt"), der Grafen von Werdenberg-Heiligenberg-Sigmaringen-Trochtelfingen, hatte vor Hausen über ein nicht eingelöstes "gehaiß" (Versprechen, Schenkung?) seines Vaters, des Häuslers (Kleinstbauer) Hans geklagt. Hausen schickte daraufhin den Amtmann Conrad Rainer nach Kierwang, um eine Einigung zu erreichen. Da dieser Vermittlungsversuch scheiterte, soll nun das Gericht in Überlingen in dieser Sache "Recht ergehn lassen". Sixt von Hausen stammte aus dem seit dem 12. Jahrhundert zu belegenden und 1648 erloschenen Rittergeschlecht von Hausen. Die Herrschaft derer von Hausen umfasste die Burg Hausen (heutige Ruine Hausen in Hausen im Tal, OT Beuron), Stetten am kalten Markt, Nusplingen, Ober- und Unterglashütte und Neidingen, im Lkr. Sigmaringen. - Sixt, Hofmeister des Stifts Buchau am Federsee, Obervogt von Scheer und zeitweiliger Verwalter der Vogtei Heiligenberg für die Grafen von Werdenberg-Heiligenberg, ist heute vor allem aufgrund seiner deftigen Rolle in der berühmten Zimmerischen Chronik bekannt. Diese ab 1540 von Graf Froben Christoph von Zimmern (1519-1566), einem persönlichen Berkannten Hausens, verfasste Chronik, die ebenso reich an Schwänken wie an historischen Details ist, zählt zu den wichtigsten Geschichtswerken des 16. Jahrhunderts, das einen einzigartigen Einblick in die deutsche Adelskultur jener Zeit vermittelt. Sixt wird in der Chronik als Haudegen und kraftvolle Ritternatur geschildert, mit Energie und Lebenskraft, die er auch noch kurz vor seinem Tod im hohen Alter aufwies. Dass er sich scheinbar nicht nur seine Lebens-, sondern auch seine Manneskraft lange bewahrte, unterstreicht die berühmte Episode von Sixts als "Schellenfünfe" bekannt gewordener Konkubine. (...Aber Sixt von Hausen ist biß in sein letzstes alter seins gemüets und auch seins leips ganz ufrecht gewesen, hat sich, biß die schweche und das abnemen gar überhandt genommen, nie wellen füren oder im selbs ein besondere pflicht thuon lassen. Bei wenig zeiten, darvor er mit todt abgangen, ist er noch so vermüglich gewesen, das er von Mösskirch geen Hausen und dann wider geen Mösskirch hat reiten künden. So man im dann uf das ross geholfen, hat er es gar ungern gehapt und sich erzaigt, als ob er keiner hülf bedürf. So er dann langsam und mit müeh uf das ross kommen, hat er im selbs kein schuld geben, sonder sein kittel oder reitrock zu wort gehapt, das er mehrmals in ainer ungedult gesprochen: "Das dich botz leicham schende allers kittels! ich kan nimmer mit nacher kommen" Aber er hat vil jar zu Mösskirch in ganz rüebigem wesen gelept und ist auch daselbs mit großer andacht gestorben und begraben worden...")

        Historia naturalis Brasiliae, ... in qua non tantum Plantae et Animalia, sed et indigenarum morbi, ingenia et mores describuntur...

      1648. Lugdun. Batavorum et Amstelodami, F. Hackium apud L. Elzevirium, 1648. Folio (397 x 248mm). pp. (xii, including frontispiece), 122, (2); (iv), 293, (7), with engraved frontispiece and ca. 500 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments, sides with large gilt English Royal coat of arms of James II and the motto of the English chivalric Order of the Garter 'Honi soit qui mal y pense', and 2 gilt borders (skilful repair to hinges and foot of spine). First edition and a very special copy from the famous John Roland Abbey collection in an English Royal binding of the first major survey of the natural history of Brazil and the most extensive documentation on the Brazilian flora and fauna of the 17th century. It is also a pioneering work on tropical medicine. Landis comments: "This magnificent book, the most noted work of science in seventeenth-century Holland, was a product of that century's Dutch conquest of a portion of Brazil. It remained the one great illustrated work on the natural history of Brazil until the major expeditions of the nineteenth century generated new publications". Willem Piso (1611-1678; Dutch physician) was sent by the Dutch West Indies Company as the leader of the scientific mission to Brazil, where he was accompanied by the German naturalist and traveler Georg Marcgraf (1610-1644). Marcgraf's contributions to the above work are the descriptions and woodcut illustrations of the natural history matter depicting fishes, birds, quadrupeds and serpents as well as insects, and for the larger part plants. The part on the northeastern region of Brazil and the linguistics and ethnography of its inhabitants is followed by an extensive Tupi vocabulary of the Tapuia Indians. The fine pictorial titlepage is engraved after a drawing by Matham, the original of which is in the Albertina Library in Vienna. Provenance: The coat of arms are of James II (1633-1701), as Duke of York. This means that the arms date from before 1685, when James became King, and would have adopted slightly different arms; Armorial bookplate of John Roland Abbey and bookplate of John Henry Gurney.

        Vida que el el Siervo de Dios Gregorio Lopez hizo en algunos Lugares de la Nueva Espana, principalmente en el pueblo de Santa Fe

      Early missionary work in New Spain. 1648. Madrid. Francisco Nieto. In 4to (207 mm x 145 mm). 8 ff. + portrait + 114 ff. + 2 ff. Contemporary vellum, soiled, endpapers made of waste. Browned throughout, expected for the paper used, some damp staining, wide margins, unsophisticated copy. Fourth edition. The first is virtually unobtainable, printed in 1613 in Mexico. Lopez (1542 ? 1596) was a Spanish missionary and something of a mystery; he travelled to Mexico in 1562, making port at Veracruz at the age of twenty. Shortly after arriving, he left for Mexico City, where he worked for a while before completing his plans to travel to the Zacatecas region and live amongst the Chichimecos Indians. He became a hermit and spent his life amongst Mexican natives in different regions, under suspicion of heresy, apparently not attending Masses and religious services. Overall, Lopez? experiences become one of the earliest accounts of missionary work in New Spain. Little is known, and much is speculated regarding his early life in Spain, some saying he was a member of the nobility, "one of the most successful of the many early missionaries among the Indians, of New Spain, was born at Madrid, July 4th 1542, and is said to have been an illegitimate son of Charles V. or Philip II. At the age of twenty he landed at Vera Cruz, and soon after pitched his tent alone among the Chichimecos Indians. He died on the 20th of July, 1596, at Santa Fé, six miles from Mexico city, where he had been visited in his hermitage by all distinguished visitors to Mexico." (Maggs, 1922, 139). Losa?s account of Lopez? life arose considerable interest, with the work being reprinted several times in the 17th and 18th century centuries; all editions are scarce. Provenance: last folio with ownership inscription "Soy de Pedro de Landa". Palau, 142526. Sabin, 42576. Salva, 3465. Medina, 1120.

        THE ARRAIGNMENT AND CONVICTION OF SR VVALTER RAWLEIGH, AT THE KINGS BENCH-BARRE AT WINCHESTER. ON THE 17. OF NOVEMBER. 1603 . . . COPPIED BY SIR THO: OVERBVRY

      London: Printed by William Wilson for Abel Roper, 1648. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 191 x 133 mm (7 1/2 x 5 1/4"). 1 p.l. (title), 38 pp. FIRST EDITION. Pleasant enough 18th or 19th century polished calf, rebacked (perhaps in the 1970s), flat spine with vertical gilt titling, new endpapers. Title page with early ink ownership inscription of W. Bayntun, Gray's Inn (see below) and with his ink initials "WB" at foot of last page. Rear pastedown with neatly pencilled notes relating to the purchase of the book at Sotheby's by William Stirling Maxwell in 1978: "Estimated at £80/120. I paid £200 + £20 ($436.50)." Wing A-3744; Sabin 67545. Extremities a bit rubbed, a hint of soiling and a handful of small scratches to the covers, faint darkening and minor fraying to edges of title, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent copy, quite clean and fresh internally, and in a solid, very satisfactory binding. This is a rare copy of a text relating to the accusation, in 1603, that Raleigh had conspired with fellow courtier Baron Cobham to facilitate a Spanish invasion to prevent James Stuart from inheriting Elizabeth's throne. Raleigh, never adept at politics, had alienated Elizabeth's powerful secretary, Sir Robert Cecil, and the influential Howard family of Norfolk. Cecil and the Duke of Norfolk lost no opportunity to malign Raleigh to James, and seized upon an unfortunate and characteristically impulsive remark Raleigh made about thwarting the succession to try him for treason. Our "Arraignment" comes from that trial, in which the silver-tongued Raleigh argued so persuasively that at least he won the public to his side. He was convicted in any case and sentenced to be executed, but was instead imprisoned in the Tower to avoid bringing down public ire on the newly-crowned king. An educated poet, courtier, explorer, buccaneer, and one-time favorite of Queen Elizabeth, Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?-1618) lived a life full of adventure and controversy. Among many other things, he had an important intersection with American history as the person who attempted to found Roanoke Colony in Virginia in 1587. After being released from the Tower in 1616, he conducted his second expedition to the New World, sailing in search of the fabled City of Gold, or El Dorado. The venture did not succeed, and, worse, his troops (under the direct command of Lawrence Keymis) attacked and burned the Spanish outpost of San Tomàs after strict royal orders to avoid conflict with the Spaniards. Although he was not directly responsible for the attack, he was nevertheless arrested--for the second time--for treason. As a gesture of appeasement to the Spanish, he was executed on 29 October 1618, becoming a martyred hero ever after to a public antipathetic toward the Spanish (and remaining with unusual immediacy in the loving memory of his wife, who was known to have kept his embalmed head in a red leather bag next to her bed). Although we could find no record of a sale of his library, there is a "Catalogue of Books in the Possession of William Bayntun of Gray's Inn" (said to be created ca. 1768-70) in the Bodleian Library (MSS. Eng. Misc. e. 80-1). Bayntun seems to have been a serious collector: in his "Biography and Typography of William Caxton, England's First Printer," William Blades records an anecdote of our owner Bayntun unwittingly purchasing in the 1770s the only surviving copy of a Caxton incunable (unfortunately from a thief who had taken the book from Cambridge University Library). This is a rare book: since 1978, ABPC records just one other copy at auction.

From the Heber library, noting purchase at the Pennicott Sale (Sothebys, 1811) with a 7 line inscription detailing the references within to William Bankes' performing horse Marocco. Displayed in Paris during 1601, the spectacle had such an effect on Montlyard as to provoke his mentioning of 'c'est incomparable cheval' in the first (1602) and all subsequent editions of his translation of the Golden Ass. This later formed lot 48 of the 10th portion of the Heber Sale (Sothebys, 1836), finding its way in the twentieth century into the Saltwood castle library of Kenneth Clark. BM STC French 616.

      Apud Arnaldum Colomerium, Regis, & Academiae Tolosanae Typographum, Tolosae [Toulouse] 1648 - A very rare copy of a city pharmacopoeia in possibly contemporary loose vellum wrap. The Pharmaceutical profession was subject to strict regulations from its earliest origins. Reference or formula books were required, guarded, and handed down.

        Original Warrant Signed "Warwicke" as Lord High Admiral of England (for Parliament) during the English Civil War addressed to the Commissioners of the Navy ordering the complete provisioning of the fleet "for the next summer's guard" listing all 44 ships by name beneath

      1648 Handwritten. Good. No Binding. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Warwick House, 6 February 1648. Four pages (two with text). Folio ca. 32,5x22,5 cm (13x9 in). Right margin ragged and soiled, but complete, and with original folds, otherwise in good condition. Warwick's blind stamp (a crown above an anchor) impressed upper left corner. "In 1642, following the dismissal of the Earl of Northumberland as Lord High Admiral, Warwick was appointed commander of the fleet by Parliament" (Wikipedia). Another of Warwick's titles was Lord of the Caribee Islands and he was active in colonial ventures becoming president of the New England Company and a zealous member of the Bermuda and Providence Companies. The warrant replaces an earlier order with this revised list of ships and requires the provision of boatswains' and carpenters' stores for the whole summer's campaign. From the Collection of the 5th Earl of Rosebery. "As the events of 1648 unfolded, some of the ambiguities of Warwick's position appear rather to have deepened than to have diminished. On 27 May 1648 the greater part of the parliamentary fleet in the Downs mutinied against the command of Colonel Thomas Rainsborough, appointed in place of the politically suspect William Batten. Two days later parliament reappointed Warwick to the post of lord high admiral, in the hope that his popularity would secure the fidelity of the sailors" (Oxford DNB)..

        Hermetis, Aegyptiorum, et Chemicorum Sapientia ab Hermanni Conringii animadversionibus Vindicata.Copenhagen: Sumptibus Petri Hauboldi, Reg. Acad. Bibl., 1674.

      First edition, and "one of the few copies having the folding plate illustrating three types of retorts, as well as the four-page dedication to Jean Baptiste Colbert. According to the Wellcome Library catalogue, 'this plate is a copy from a MS. Of Zosimus (ca. 500 A.D.) of the earliest known illustration of distilling apparatus.' In this work Borrichius answers Hermann Conring's <i>De Hermetica Aegyptiorum Medicina</i> (Helmstedt, 1648), wherein the extreme antiquity attributed to alchemy had been seriously doubted. Borrichius's book contains valuable information on the early history of alchemy. The substantial final portion supports Paracelsian theory as applied to medicine. No other editions except this one of 1674 exist. Although several works by Borrichius were reprinted in Magnet's <i>Bibliotheca Chemica Curiosa</i> (Geneva, 1702), this was not among them.<br/><br/> "Ferguson states that there 'were apparently two issues of this book, for I have seen other copies without the dedication and the plate.' Duveen confirms this, his copy being without the plate and dedication. The Wellcome Library catalogue states that this is the second issue, although on what authority I do not know. This issue is very rare." (The Roy G. Neville Historical Chemical Library)..

When he finally returned to England and converted to the Church of England, he wrote this book to urge British seizure of the Spanish empire in America. Since the Spanish had jealously guarded foreign access to their dominions, this was the first detailed description to reach Europe of the regions visited by Gage, and it was widely reprinted and translated.

        Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all The Incomparable Peeces, Written By Sir John Svckling. And published by a Friend to perpetuate his memory. Printed by his owne Copies

      1648  Octavo, 7 x 4.75 inches . Second edition.. A4, A-G8, H4, A-E8, F4, A-D8, A-C8, D4. A fine portrait of Suckling Engraved by William Marshall precedes the title.  The leaves are large and clean, with a crisp type impression. They have not been washed or pressed. It is bound in full contemporary sheepskin. Binding and contents are in very good shape. This volume is divided into four parts, each with a separate title-page and pagination. The first contains a medley of poems and songs, a number of letters, and an essay on religion; the other three are plays, "Aglaura," "The Goblins," and "The Tragedy of Brennoralt." At his best, Suckling writes with considerable charm; the song which begins, "Why so pale and wan fond lover" has a permanent place in the language of courtship. There is also a short "supplement" to Shakespeare"s Lucrece. "Sir John Suckling, a Cavalier poet, Suckling's short life was so crowded with activity that the amount of his literary output is remarkable. The son of an old Norfolk family, he seems to have taken his education none too seriously: he left Cambridge without graduating and spent a year at Gray's Inn. His father died when Suckling was 18, and this gave him freedom to seek what adventures he pleased. He was a member of the expedition to the Ile de Re (1627), was in the Netherlands (1629-30), and served under Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden (1631-32). He was knighted in 1630. "A staunch Royalist, Suckling took up arms on the king's behalf in 1639 and 1640 and is believed to have been active in a plot to free the Earl of Strafford from the Tower. It was to the Parliamentary party's advantage to make a 'plot' of the affair and Suckling fled to Paris, where he died in the following year-by his own hand according to John Aubrey. "Suckling was the author of three plays-Aglaura, The Goblins, and Brennoralt-which have never been revived but which contain some good lyrics, notably 'Why so pale and wan, fond lover?' His best work, indeed, is in the form of short pieces, occasional verses and songs, and in the delightful 'A Ballad upon a Wedding.' His expression is direct and robust, reflecting to some degree his lively, pleasure-loving, and tragically short life. His first published collection was A session of the Poets (1637). Fragmenta Aurea. A Collection of all the Incomparable Pieces, written by Sir John Suckling. And published by a Friend to perpetuate his memory appeared posthumously (1646)." (quoted from Stapleton's Cambridge Guide to English Literature)
