        Vipera Pythia. Id est, de viperæ natura, veneno, medicina, demonstrationes, & experimenta nova.

      Padua: Frambotti. 1650. Small 4to. Contemporary vellum binding, later red morocco gilt labels to spine, yapp edges; pp. [xii] + 522 + [xxii], including several engravings and engraved head- and tail-pieces, illustrated half title; circular scratch marks to sides, some loss to labels, discreet repairs to pp. 99-102 and 179-80 without loss, corner of pp. 217-8 repaired with loss affecting final word on p. 217/ occasional browning, generally very good. First edition. Text in Latin. Very scarce; a copy of this edition last came to auction in 1988. A 1651 second issue is far more common. This is a fascinating work on snakes, dealing not only with their anatomy, venom, medicinal properties and the treatment of bites but also with the folklore surrounding serpents. The plates depict not only snake anatomy but also mythical representations of serpents. This reflects the intellectual approach of the author: "[his] works presented a blend of empirical scientific observations and spiritual beliefs and speculations. He believed, for example, that studying anatomy would allow one to understand not just the natural world, but also the divine will and workings of the world's creator. (His mysticism also caught the eye of the Inquisition, who brought him in for questioning, although he was eventually acquitted)" (Timothy D. Murray, Alexander C. Johnston, and Curtis Small, catalogue of University Delaware's Animal Vegetable Mineral exhibition, August - December 2014). Severinus (1580 - 1656) was an Italian surgeon who rose to become professor of anatomy in Naples, where he died of the plague. Osler 3961; OCLC records only three copies of this edition, in the British Library, the University of Glasgow and the Frisian Historical and Literary Centre.

        L'entrata degli animali nell'arca.

      - Acquaforte, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra "GB CASTILIONE GEIEP (Genovese Invenit et Pinxit)", eseguita su carta vergata con filigrana ovale non identificata, mm. 207x403 (lastra). Stato unico. Bella prova, impressa su foglio assai marginoso. Uno dei pi? celebri soggetti dell'incisore genovese, databile, secondo Percy attorno al 1650-55 per via di un uso denso e controllato di un chiaroscuro di origine rembrandtesca. Il tema biblico Ë accennato in secondo piano mentre il Grechetto sembra dedicarsi con maggiore attenzione al soggetto animalistico come spesso nelle opere del periodo genovese. Abile incisore, Castiglione fu il primo in Italia ad apprezzare ed imitare le stupende acqueforti del Rembrandt. Esemplare appartenuto alla collezione Georg Denzel, come testimoniato dal timbro di collezione riportato sul cartoncino di supporto. Bellini 61; Bartsch 1 grafica d'autore.

        Der Affenchirurg. (Auch: Die Affenbarbierstube / La boutique du singe perruquier / The Monkey's Barber Shop). Original-Kupferstich nach David Teniers II.

      Um 1650.. Ca. 24,5 x 31,5 cm. Mit schmalem, umgehenden Rändchen um die Einfassungslinie, etwas nachgedunkelt, leichte Knitterspuren im Mittelfalz, verso mit sauber hinterlegtem Einriß in der Mittelfalte (ca. 2 cm) und wenigen winzigen, kaum sichtbaren Löchlein. Rückseitig mit älterem Sammlerstempel (Initiale 'CD'). An beiden oberen Ecken auf Trägerkarton gefalzt. Schöner, gratiger Abzug. Le Blanc 52; Hollstein 42. Papier mit WZ Schellenkappe. - Wie alle Radierungen von Coryn Boel und besonders jene, die in der Zusammenarbeit mit Tenier entstanden, sehr selten! Darstellungen von Barbieren, Zahnbrechern (von Zahn-Ärzten mag man nicht nur aus der komfortablen Position des Nachgeborenen kaum reden) und Alchimisten in Affengestalt waren im 17. Jahrhundert besonders populär, galten diese der Bevölkerung doch zumeist als Scharlatane. Teniers bediente dieses Genre mit vielen, detailreichen Bildern und gilt zu Recht als einer der herausragendsten Künstler des Genres.

        Den Reghel van Sinte Benedictvs.

      Manuscript: 1650. 8vo (15,8 x 10,5 cm). (11), 128, (5) pp. Manuscript. Text in 1 column within a frame; 21 to 24 lines to the page. Flexible vellum, spine with 4 raised bands, covers with holes for ties. Calligraphed title-page. The manuscript, written in Dutch, follows the Dutch editio princeps of the Regula S. Benedicti, but, due to several variations, the manuscript can be considered as a Cistercian version of that book. The first edition of that work in the Low Countries was printed by Guillaume de Neve from Bruges in 1625 (a copy of that title-page is joined). Saint Benedict, father of Roman-Catholic monastic life, was born in Nursia (ca 480) and died at Monte Cassino (543). His Regula Benedicti has been important for the development of church and society in Western Europe, as well for its culture and art. The Regula has not been written to regulate the monastic order, but was intended for laymen to guide them through a life in the spirit of the Holy Scripture. Until now, the Regula has been reprinted innumerable times. A well-kept manuscript, very legible, covers wrinkled and several leaves with waterstains (first and last leaves mostly). .

        Globum huiusmodi, terraqueum [& coelestem] Gulielmo III. invictissimo, ac potentissimo Magnae Britanniaem etc. ...[Dedication signed:] London, Vincenzo Coronelli, 1696. A pair of globes (47 cm diameter), terrestrial and celestial, each with 12 engraved gores and 2 polar calottes. Each globe coloured by a later hand and varnished. Each with a wooden meridian and horizon ring, the horizon ring covered with a reproduction of an engraved sheet and the meridian ring painted in yellow and red with manuscript notes. Each globe in a wooden stand in 17th-century style.

      Dekker, Globes at Greenwich, pp. 312-316 ( GLB0124-125); Stevenson, Terrestrial and celestial globes, pp. 115-118. A pair of beautiful globes, in their first state, by the celebrated Venetian globe maker Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718), who worked extensively for the French and British markets. “His reputation in the field was established in 1681 with the production of the so-called ‘Marly globes' ... made for the French king, Louis XIV. Coronelli seems to have sensed that the nobility of Europe wanted grand globes. These, then, he would provide!” (Dekker, p. 112). One of them is the present pair of globes dedicated to William of Orange, Stadholder of The Netherlands and King of England as William III.“In geographical names the map records are very full, these being given either in Italian, Spanish, Latin, Dutch, English, or in the native language of the country in which they appear. ... Legends are exceedingly numerous, many of them recording incidents relating to certain expeditions or to certain discoveries, such as the expedition of Magellan; early expeditions along the west coast of North America, including reference to Cortes, Ulloa, Alarçon, Cabrillo, Guzman, Drake, expeditions to the East Indies, including that of Le Maire, Hoorn, Van Diemen, Chaumony, and others. Boundary lines of local regions, in both the Old and the New World are exceedingly numerous, which fact in itself gives a somewhat unique value to the map as of geographical and historical value. California appears as an island, and a great stretch of ocean appears between northwest North America and northeast Asia wherein is located land with indefinite outline marked, 'Terra de Jesso ó Jeco, Yedco, Esso et Sesso Scoperta dagli Hollandesi 1'anno 1643. The map of North America is particularly of interest and value, especially for the region of the United States” (Stevenson).“Thirty-eight constellations are designated in the northern hemisphere, twelve in the zodiac, and thirty-three in the southern hemisphere, thus adding thirty-five to the number as given by Ptolemy. Instead of Ptolemy's 1022 catalogued stars, including fifteen of the first magnitude, forty-five of the second, two hundred and eight of the third, four hundred and seventy-four of the fourth, two hundred and seventeen of the fifth, forty-nine of the sixth, and forty which were nebular and indistinct, Coronelli gives the number as 1902, including eighteen of the first, sixty-eight of the second, two hundred and thirty-seven of the third, four hundred and ninety-six of the fourth, four hundred and eighty-nine of the fifth, five hundred and sixteen of the sixth, and seventy-eight which were nebular and indistinct. Five of the latter, having been discovered in the previous one hundred and twenty-five years, had wholly or in part disappeared in Coronelli's day, of which, that making its appearance in the constellation Cassiopeia in the year 1572 disappeared in the year 1574, that discovered in the year 1596 in the Whale was rapidly diminishing in size, that discovered by Tycho Brahe in the Swan in the year 1600 ceased to be visible in the year 1629 to reappear in the year 1659, that in the Serpent larger than the planet Jupiter which was visible but thirteen months, that in the head of the Swan discovered in the year 1670 and still visible” (Stevenson on the 1688 celestial globe, largely matching the present vesion).One of the celestial globe's cartouches has some minor damage and another's left side doesn't align exactly with its right. Some restorations to the paper and with the printed horizon rings in facsimile. A beautiful pair of globes.

He was the first to introduce Cartesianism into medical science and one the first scientific and empiricist physicians. With bookplate and with an occasional pencilled note or mark.
