Woodcut printer's device on titles, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Full page engraved portraits of the author and his son on *4. Printed in double columns. Contemporary full red vellum, with the original tabs marking the various parts; interior excellent.

First edition of the Ortus medicinae, together with the complementary edition of the Opuscula medica inaudita normally found bound with it. The Ortus medicinae is the masterwork of one of the most original geniuses in the history of science. Van Helmont is celebrated as one of the first to conduct quantitative biological experiments; one of the founders of biochemistry; one of the first to recognize that there are several air-like substances and the originator of the word "gas" (from the Flemish pronunciation of the Greek word "chaos") to describe them; and the author of the modern ontological conception of disease. Van Helmont was, like Paracelsus, an alchemist and a mystic, but above all he believed in experiment and empiricism as the path to true knowledge. "In medicine, he introduced the examination of the specific gravity of urine for diagnostic purposes. He investigated the fluids in the human body and advanced the study of digestion in the stomach, coming close to identifying gastric acid with hydrochloric acid s … [Click Below for Full Description]

NARABAYASHI, Chinzan
A richly illustrated manuscript, important and influential in the history of medicine and surgery in Japan, revealing the introduction of European medical knowledge in Japan, through Ambroise Paré's Chirurgie, Scultetus's Armamentarium Chirurgicum, and Spigelius's Opera. This is a luxury copy (only one similar set survives, at Nagasaki), in oblong folio format, and written and finely illustrated on fine thick mulberry paper. Our manuscript contains 134 exquisitely drawn and richly hand-colored illustrations. Chinzan (or Eikyu) Narabayashi (1648-1711), belonged to a family of professional interpreters in Nagasaki and became proficient in the Dutch language. He had contact with several Dutch physicians on the island of Dejima and their influence inspired the young Japanese to forsake his profession to study medicine. By 1691, the shogunate offered him a position of "official physician." Narabayashi learned Western medicine from the Dutch doctors on Dejima and from them he acquired an edition of Paré's Chirurgie in 1688. That very copy remained in the family until 1891 when it was presented to Tokyo University Library. It was destroyed during the 1923 earthquake and fire. "Geka Soden" is based on the masterworks of Paré, Scultetus, and Spigelius and also took into consideration oral instructions given by Dutch physicians to Narabayashi, along with his own theories derived from his own surgical experiences. The text also reflects Chinese influences including the explanation of in-yo (the positive and negative) and applying prescriptions used in Chinese medicine. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Authorship of the Eikon Basilike was originally attributed to Charles I, but according to Madan (pp. 125-33) it was written by John Gauden who probably included some authentic writings of the king.; The text was suppressed by Parliament, so it was illegal for printers to print it and for booksellers to sell it. Most editions therefore give very little information about their production on the title page, where one would usually expect to see the place of printing, the printer's (and occasionally publisher's) name and address. Given the secrecy with which copies of the text had to be produced, establishing the order in which the various editions appeared and by whom they were printed is not an easy task. Consequently the identification of printers with particular anonymous editions has often been achieved by comparing their … [Click Below for Full Description]

COEHOORN, Menno van.
Jähns, p. 1383; Jordan 745 (3 copies); cf. Sloos, Warfare 8076. First German edition (second issue) of one of the greatest classics of the art of fortification, by the Inspector General of Dutch fortifications and Master General of the artillery, Menno van Coehoorn. While the Dutch had established themselves as the greatest masters of fortification during the Eighty Years' War for Dutch independence from Spain, the art did not stand still after peace came temporarily in 1648. Although a few Dutch engineers spoke out for reform, the Frenchman Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) was to dominate the field with his fortifications, defensive and especially offensive strategies, and publications on the subjects from the 1670s. Van Coehoorn (1641-1704), Vauban's only major rival, took a very different approach, more practical than theoretical, with his great fortification manual in 1685. He deployed troops more actively in the defence of fortifications and tailored his designs and strategies to the particular features of the site. This made them especially important for fortifications and siege warfare in the marshy flat lands of the Low Countries, circumstances less familiar to Vauban.With library stamp. With a blank leaf pasted over the instructions to the bookbinder on )(4v. The plates are quite lightly inked, so that they show a great deal of detail. Lacking 1 folding plate, with a small tear and some wrinkles in 1 folding plate (fig. I) and an occasional minor spot, but otherwise in very good condition.

SANSON D'ABBEVILLE NICOLAS.
1648. Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca ai confini, mm 415x560. Sanson, geografo del Re Luigi XIII è considerato il fondatore della cartografia francese, tra i primi ad applicare la trigonometria nelle misurazioni geodetiche; infatti Nicolas Sanson e i suoi collaboratori realizzarono nuove proiezioni geografiche e pubblicarono numerosi atlanti, mentre si affermava l'impiego dei sistemi di misura indiretta mediante i procedimenti trigonometrici applicati in Olanda da Snellius fin dal 1617. Il rilevamento geodetico-topografico basato sulla triangolazione prese rapidamente piede dando alle carte geografiche un aspetto sempre più aderente alla realtà che rappresentavano.Buon esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione.

Frontespizio rimontato scontornato fuori dal testo, ritratto rimontato refilato al vivo, note di possesso a china d'epoca al frontespizio. Copia con nota originale a china datata 6 luglio 1902 alla sguardia: "Mi furono regalate dal mio amico Don Luigi Villotti, Cappellano Esposto di Piazzo di Segonzano, morto lì 22 febbraio 1888. Vi mancano però le pagine 19 20 21 22 119 120 295 e 296 che io ho sostituito con copie, valendomi d'un originale, messomi a disposizione dalla biblioteca Comunale di Trento". Le pagine mancanti sono reintegrate nel 1902 in bella grafia a china. Stemma dei Madruzzo al frontespizio. Carattere romano e corsivo. Dedica di Carlo Zanetti a Carlo Emanuele Madruzzo. I quattordici libri che compongono l'opera, come nelle prima edizione stampata nel 1546 a Mantova da Venturino Ruffinelli, sono dedicati ad Aliprando Cles, a esclusione del primo e del quarto non dedicati e del secondo dedicato a Cristoforo Madruzzo. L'incisione in rame a piena pagina raffigurante Carlo Emanuele Madruzzo è probabilmente opera di Francesco Curti. La traduzione del testo del Pincio, opera del francescano Agostino Barisella, a causa di alcune difformità dal testo originale che davano luogo a pericolosi fraintendimenti di carattere politico, incorse nelle ire del vescovo Carlo Emanuele Madruzzo che impose di allegare alla pubblicazione un foglio di correzioni: "[...] Scoprendosi dalla lettur … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Touchstone is the earliest work devoted to the theory of conveyancing. Each chapter opens with a definition of a type of conveyance followed by an outline of the rules, principles and legal maxims that govern it. Sheppard's comments are supported by textual authorities and case examples, and he includes variations, specific conditions and limitations. Sheppard's claim of authorship has been a point of controversy since the eighteenth century. Many scholars believe that the Touchstone was written as a manuscript for personal use by Sir John Dodderidge, a judge during the reign of Charles I. According to this theory, Sheppard purchased the manuscript at auction, then edited it for publication. Whet … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sheppard, William
1648. London, 1651. 2nd ed. The First English Treatise on Conveyancing Sheppard, William [fl. 1660]. The Touch-Stone of Common Assurances. Or, A Plain and Familiar Treatise Opening the Learning of the Common Assurances or Conveyances of the Kingdom. London: Printed for W. Lee, D. Pakeman, And Gabriel Bedell, 1651. [xii], 348, 353-529, [7] pp. Final leaf blank. Text complete. Quarto (8" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary calf, rebacked in period style, blind rules to boards, raised bands to spine. A few scratches to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, corners bumped and somewhat worn, front pastedown loose, rear pastedown removed. Very light browning to text, annotations in contemporary hand to a few leaves, light foxing in a few places, offsetting and minor wear to edges of preliminaries and final few leaves, light soiling to title page. $450. * Second edition. The Touchstone is the earliest work devoted to the theory of conveyancing. Each chapter opens with a definition of a type of conveyance followed by an outline of the rules, principles and legal maxims that govern it. Sheppard's comments are supported by textual authorities and case examples, and he includes variations, specific conditions and limitations. Sheppard's claim of authorship has been a point of controversy since the eighteenth century. Many scholars believe that the Touchstone was written as a manuscript for personal use by Sir John Dodderidge, a judge during the reign of Charles I. According to this theory, Sheppard purchased the manuscript at auction, then edited it for publication. Whether the author was Shep … [Click Below for Full Description]

GODEAU (Antoine)
Paris, veuve de Jean Camusat, et Pierre Le Petit 1648 - fort vol. in-4, [9] ff. n. ch. (titre, préface, privilège), 614 pp., [5] ff. n. ch. de tables, maroquin noir, dos à nerfs orné de doubles caissons et fleurons à froid, double encadrement de triple filet à froid avec fleurons d'angle sur ls plats, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Une mouillure angulaire aux premiers ff., mais bon exemplaire, à grandes marges. Edition originale de l'intégralité de cette élégante paraphrase, soigneusement imprimée dans une typographie aérée, et qui avait été précédée par de nombreuses versions de psaumes particuliers (nombreuses plaquettes in-4, sorties de 1637 à 1640). L'ouvrage connut un succès étonnant, et fut le plus pratiqué des nombreuses paraphrases de l'abbé Godeau (1605-1672, bientôt évêque de Grasse et de Vence), dont la figure mériterait d'être vraiment redécouverte de nos jours.

Walker, Clement]
1648 (first part and appendix) and 1649 (second part); small 4to, pp [vi], 174, 18, [viii], 254, [i, being an errata leaf]; full calf, worn and both boards detached; internally sound and clean although generally somewhat browned; faint library stamp at foot of title page of first part; errata leaf torn across without loss of text and now carefully repaired; occasional decorative initials and headings. Walker, an English lawyer, was a member and an outspoken critic of the Long Parliament (1640-1648 and then 1658-1660) until his death in the Tower of London 1651. Initially hostile ot the Puritans he latterly sided with William Prynne, another Somerset lawyer and a Puritan hostile to Archbishop William Laud. Walker was strongly hostile to what he saw as the corruption of parliament and argued strongly for the rights of MPs against the House of Lords and against arbitrary government. Although not in the best condition as regards its binding this is a good copy of an important historical and political work complete with the two parts and the appendix to the first part. Walker later published in 1651 a third part to his "History of Independency" titled "The High Court of Justice, or Cromwell's New Slaughter House in England". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

NARABAYASHI, Chinzan
1648. A richly illustrated manuscript, important and influential in the history of medicine and surgery in Japan, revealing the introduction of European medical knowledge in Japan, through Ambroise Paré's Chirurgie, Scultetus's Armamentarium Chirurgicum, and Spigelius's Opera. This is a luxury copy (only one similar set survives, at Nagasaki), in oblong folio format, and written and finely illustrated on fine thick mulberry paper. Our manuscript contains 134 exquisitely drawn and richly hand-colored illustrations.Chinzan (or Eikyu) Narabayashi (1648-1711), belonged to a family of professional interpreters in Nagasaki and became proficient in the Dutch language. He had contact with several Dutch physicians on the island of Dejima and their influence inspired the young Japanese to forsake his profession to study medicine. By 1691, the shogunate offered him a position of "official physician."Narabayashi learned Western medicine from the Dutch doctors on Dejima and from them he acquired an edition of Paré's Chirurgie in 1688. That very copy remained in the family until 1891 when it was presented to Tokyo University Library. It was destroyed during the 1923 earthquake and fire."Geka Soden" is based on the masterworks of Paré, Scultetus, and Spigelius and also took into consideration oral instructions given by Dutch physicians to Narabayashi, along with his own theories derived from his own surgical experiences. The text also reflects Chinese influences including the explanation of in-yo (the positive and negative) and applying prescriptions used in Ch … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vasari, Giorgio
Per gli Eredi di Evangelista Dozza, 1648. La prima edizione delle «Vite» del Vasari, come noto, uscì nel 1550 a Firenze, per i torchi del tipografo ducale Lorenzo Torrentino, e fu dedicata al Granduca Cosimo I de' Medici. Vasari però, di lì a poco tornò sul testo arricchendolo notevolmente, e soprattutto corredandolo con i ritratti degli artisti trattati, da lui stesso disegnati: dal grande lavoro di revisione e ampliamento nacque così la seconda edizione, tanto monumentale quanto celebre, apparsa a Firenze nel 1568 presso Giunti. L'opera, per quasi un secolo, non godette di ulteriori ristampe. Si deve all'intraprendenza di Carlo Manolessi, importante libraio (o meglio, "bibliopola", secondo quanto riportato da un registro del tempo) attivo a Bologna nel XVII secolo, la prima stampa seicentesca, uscita nel 1647, che ebbe come modello proprio la giuntina: Manolessi, infatti, acquistò i legni dell'edizione del 1568, ne aggiunse alcuni altri, e curò la stampa presso gli Eredi Dozza. Il risultato fu splendido, il successo notevole: e così, l'anno successivo si impresse la seconda edizione Dozza, che qui presentiamo, in tutto identica alla prima. Graesse VI, 264.

(n. p.): Printed in the Yeare, 1648. 1st edition (Wing D138). Early brown full leather binding. No eps. General wear to binding, with chip to leather at top of spine. Fairfax bookplate. Age-toning to paper, and some thumbing throughout. An About VG copy.. [16], 142, [2 (including Errata)] pp. Head- tailpieces. 4to: A - V^4. 7-3/8" x 5-5/8" [18.7 cm x 14.5 cm]. "Sir Charles Dallison was an officer in the Royalist army during the English Civil War. He was also a serjeant-at-law and in 1648 he published an often cited work justifying his reasons for supporting the Royalist cause." 'The most expansive and cogently argued of all Royalist self-vindications'. In it he explains that he initially took up arms because of the Militia Ordinance which he considered an illegal act because the king did not give his royal assent to it. In the opinion of Dallison no new law can be passed without the assent of the king, so those who marched under the authority of the Militia Ordinance were committing high treason, and it was the duty of all loyal subjects to defend the king against those who break the law and commit high treason." From the library of a descendent of the famous Parliamentary military commander during the English Civil War.
