PRIMERA EDICION. El autor, Francisco Colin, era un misionero jesuita español que nació en Cataluña en 1592 y murió en Manila, en el año 1660. Historiador y educador, que pasó muchos años en las Filipinas . De sus obras merecen destacarse una Historia de las Filipinas cerca del año 1640 ; su Labor Evangélica, 1663 y la que presentamos, Vida, Hechos y Doctrina 1652. La obra trata de la vida de Alonso Rodríguez (1532-1617), Jesuita que ejerció una gran influencia sobre otros miembros de la Orden , especialmente en San Pedro Claver, quien fuera en misión a Sudamérica, donde tuvo intensa actividad proselitista. En su honor, una de las casas de los Jesuitas en Bogotá (Colombia), se llama San Alonso Rodríguez. Esta obra de Colin, detalla exhaustivamente la vida del Santo Alonso Rodríguez, que fue beatificado en 1825, por León XII y canonizado en 1888, por León XIII. "Life and Work of an Influential Spanish Jesuit Who Advised Peter Claver on His Trip to Colombia, Written by Another Jesuit, President of the College of Manila". 4to; missing 2 leaves (4pp) of index. Some copies were printed with a portrait; some without it, such as this copy. We have checked about a dozen library holdings and roughly half are missing the portrait. FIRST EDITION. The author, Francisco Colin, was a Spanish Jesuit missionary who was born in Catalonia in 1592 and died in Manila in 1660. A historian and educator, he worked for many years in the Philippines. Of all of his works three are especially noteworthy: a history of the Philippines from c. 1640; a monograph on evangelical work published in 1663; and the present biographical work from 1652. This monograph focuses on the life of Alonso Rodríguez (1532-1617), a Jesuit who was highly influential among his peers in the Society, especially for Saint Peter Claver, a missionary who carried out intensive proselytizing work in Cartagena de Indias in the Kingdom of New Granada (present-day Colombia) and became known as the Apostle of the Slaves. One of the Jesuit residences in Bogotá Colombia bears the name San Alonso Rodríguez, in his honor. This work by Colin provides an exhaustive account of the life of Saint Alonso Rodríguez, beatified in 1825 by Pope Leon XII and canonized in 1888 by Leon XIII. * WorldCat: 2 copies in US Libraries (JCB (without portrait, like ours) & IU) Medina, J.T.

Horn's On American Origins "traces the supposed original sources from whence the North American Indians were derived."

Horn proposes a diffuse settlement of the Americans and ultimately suggests a land bridge from Asia over the Bering Strait. Horn references early travels to and accounts of America.

Frise d'encadrement à froid sur les plats avec petits fleurons angulaires. Frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Bel exemplaire. La première défense du peuple anglais contre le libelle de Claude Saumaise, érudit protestant français, rédigé en opposition au régicide de Charles Ier, fut commandé à John Milton par le Conseil d'état d'Angleterre. Cette défense (pamphlet à la fois politique et religieux) vise à légitimer l'éxécution de charles Ier, et la possibilité pour le peuple anglais de s'autodéterminer. Cette première défense deviendra célèbre et fut essentielle pour les relations européennes. Il fut ensuite rédigé un écrit par Pierre du Moulin préfacé par Alexandre More et qui attaquait personnellement John Milton, accusé de relations sexuelles douteuses et d'immoralité. John Milton fit donc un portrait vertueux de son existence en réponse à ses calomnies. Il pensait par erreur que Alexandre More en était l'auteur, c'est pourquoi son troisième libelle porte en titre "contre Alexandre More". L'ensemble des critiques et attaques contre l'Angleterre provinrent d'auteurs protestants. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

Langlois, dit Chartres, 1652; 1651 - Two parts in one vol, folio (343 x 230 mm), pp [xvi, including frontispiece and portrait] 191 [1]; [xii] 134, with engraved frontispiece, portrait, and 50 plates, one double-page; a fine copy in contemporary French calf, gilt fillets on sides, gilt panels on spine, head and tail of spine a little worn.Third editiion (first 1638) of Niceron's work, and first edition of Mersenne's treatise on optics and catoptrics.Niceron's book on perspective and anamorphic projection is divided into the traditional three divisions of optics, concerning direct light, catoptrics, dealing with reflected light, and dioptrics, dealing with refracted light. 'Although aware of the latest theoretical developments, Niceron concentrated primarily on the practical applications of perspective, catoptrics, and dioptrics, and on the illusory effects then traditionally associated with natural magic. The first [book] presents briefly the fundamental geometrical theorems that are necessary for what follows; it then develops a general method of perspective collineation, borrowing heavily from Alberti and Dürer. Book II, which is addressed to the problem of establishing perspective for paintings executed on curved or irregular surfaces (for example, vaults and niches), presents a general technique of anamorphosis; that is, the determination of the surface distortions necessary to bring a picture into perspective when viewed from a given point. Niceron showed, for example, how to construct on the interior surface of a cone a distorted image which, when viewed end on through the base, appears in proper proportion. Book III discusses the anamorphosis of figures that are viewed by reflection from plane, cylindrical, and conical mirrors. He explained how to draw on a plane surface a distorted figure which, when viewed by means of a cylindrical mirror standing perpendicular to the plane, appears in normal proportion. Book IV deals with the distortions created by refraction. Here Niceron abandoned any effort at general treatment and concentrated instead on constructing an optical device consisting of a polyhedral lens that gathers elements of one figure and unites them into another, totally different figure. The discussion contains perhaps the first published reference to Descartes' derivation of the law of refraction (1638) and thus gains some historical significance' (DSB). 'The classic phase of anamorphosis, during which it came to relate vitally to a series of scientific and theological concerns, occurred in France and Rome in the 1630s and 1640s. The theorist at the centre of the Paris-Rome developments was Jean-François Niceron, whom we have already characterised as a geometrical theorist of some note in the Mersenne circle. The second part of his [Perspective curieuse] is dedicated to a comprehensive treatment of anamorphic images using a perspectively distorted grid, of the kind that had probably underlaid the most optical of the earlier images, such as those by Schön and Holbein. He also gives mathematical instructions for the design of other forms of anamorphosis: on surfaces which are pyramidal or conical; and curvilinear images which are designed to be viewed in cylindrical or conical mirrors' (Martin Kemp, The science of art pp 210-11, q.v. for a detailed discussion of the relationship between Niceron's anamorphic work, his religious beliefs, and the philosophy of Mersenne and Descartes).The original title of this work was: La perspective curieuse ou magie artificiele des effets merveilleux. De l'optique, par la vision directe. La catoptrique, par la reflexion des miroirs plats, cylindriques & coniques. La dioptrique, par la refraction des crystaux. Oeuvre tres-utile aux peintres, architectes, graveurs, sculpteurs .Niceron studied under Mersenne in Paris and then entered the Order of Minims; he was appointed professor of mathematics at their convent in Rome. He was also an artist of some note and executed a large anamorphic wall painting (now lost) in the

        A Lapidary or, the History of Precious Stones: with Cautions for the Undeceiving of all Those That Deal with Precious Stones.

      Cambridge: Thomas Buck, 1652. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (179 x 137 mm). [10], 239 [1] pp. Includes folding table, but without the initial blank. Bound in later half calf over marbled boards, blind-stamped and gilt-lettered spine (repair to spine, hinges and corners). Text little browned throughout, light dampstaining to preliminary leaves and title and faint to several signatures near the end, occasional minor spotting, top margin trimmed closed but not affecting headlines, old repaired tear at fold of table. Provenance: F. B. Lorch (leather bookplate); Henry & Carol Faul (bookplate). Still a very good and unmarked copy. ----Wing N1145; Hoover 610; Wheeler-Gift 136 (cites 15 leaves of prelims, in error). - FIRST EDITION of the first book written in English on gemstones and important also from the perspective of the development of geological science. "Nicols follows De Boodt closely and quotes him frequently. He adopts his classification of gems and his views concerning the occult powers which certain of them possess, as derived from the divine Being, acting through good or evil spirits, the stones being intermediaries, and thus they are "Oft times the habitacles of daemones and intelligences which Johannes Langius in his epistle calleth syderum & orbium motores" The introduction to his chapter entitled Of the Emerauld or Smaragde is an interesting example of the quaint phraseology of the time : The Emerauld is a precious gemme or stone of so excellent a viridity, or spring-colour, as that if a man shall look upon the Emerauld by a pleasant green meadow, it will be more amiable than the meadow, and overcome the meadows glorie, by the glory of that spring of viriditie which it hath in itself: The largeness of the meadow it will overcome with the amplitude of its glory, wherewith farre above its greatnesse it doth feed the eie: and the virescencie of the meadow it will overcome with the brightnesse of its glory, which in it self seemeth to embrace the glorious viridity of many springs. This stone is known by its apparent coldness in the mouth, by its gravity being weighed; and in this, that being cast into a fire, it will not burn, nor send forth any flame, and that in the brightnesse of the Sunne, it will keep its excellent viridity and greenness." Frank Dawson Adams. Medieval Mineralogy. In: Mineralogical Record, 1995, vol. 26, no. 4, p.38). Very Good.

        Insularum Sardiniae et Corsicae antiqua descriptio-Insular aliquot Aegaei maris antiqua descrip

      Incisione in rame, mm 430x488. Piacevole carta di Sardegna, Corsica e isole dell'Egeo, nella edizione senza testo del 1652, arricchita da vari bei cartigli. Tratta da "Accurata Orbis antiqui Delineatio" l'atlante storico, curato da Hornius ed inserito da Janssonius come volume VI del suo "Atlas Novus". La carta è una copia di quella originariamente edita da Ortelio nel "Parergon" del "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". Janssonius, genero di Jodocus Hondius e cognato di Henricus, collaborò alla pubblicazione di atlanti, dopo l'acquisizione delle lastre di Mercatore da parte di Jodocus e dal 1638 fu in effetti colui che guidò l'impresa editoriale, mentre Henricus Hondius lentamente abbandonava l'attività (dal 1646 il suo nome non apparirà più su alcun frontespizio); risultò così divenire il grande avversario della famiglia Blaeu nel secolo d'oro della cartografia olandese. Perfetto esemplare marginosissimo. Copper engraving, mm 430x488; classic map of mediterranean islands. From "Accurata Orbis antiqui Delineatio", Janssonius' historical atlas with text by Hornius, published as volume VI of his Atlas Novus. Johannes Janssonius (1588 - 1664) was born in Arnhem, Holland. He was the son of a printer and bookseller and in 1612 married the daughter of Hondius. In 1616 Jansson produced his first maps influenced by Blaeu. In the mid 1630s Jansson partnered with his brother-in-law, Henricus Hondius, to produce his important work, the eleven volume Atlas Major. About this time, Jansson's name also begins to appear on Hondius reissues of notable Mercator/Hondius atlases. Georg Horn (1620 - 1670) german historian and professor, composed a number of historical essays but is best known for composing the text to accompany Johannes Jansson's historical atlas.

Seltene zweite Auflage des berühmten Grundlagenwerks der Physiologischen Optik, mit den ersten Berichten seiner Versuche am menschlichen Auge!

Von dem Verfasser Christoph Scheiner, der Ges. Jesu". Die wichtigsten Forschungen Scheiners liegen auf dem Gebiet der physiologischen Optik, auf dem wir ihn in gewissem Sinn als Vorläufer von Helmholtz ansehen können. -cf. M.v. Rohr Scheiner beginnt mit der eingehenden anatomischen Beschreibung des Auges, so wurde seine schematische Darstellung des Auges auf Seite 17 mit der ersten exakten Darstellung der Teile des Auges und dem exzentrischen Sehnerveneintritt ein Meilenstein der wissenschaftlichen Darstellung des Auges. Die Netzhaut ist nach Scheiner und nach Kepler, entgegen früheren Meinungen, welche die Wahrnehmung des Bildes in den Glaskörper oder gar in die Linse verlegten, der eigentliche Sitz des Sehvermögens. Er entfernte die Häute an der hinteren Wand eines Ochsenauges bis auf die Netzhaut und brachte eine Kerze in einiger Entfernung vor dem präparierten Auge an. Das umgekehrte Bild der Kerzenflamme konnte dann auf der Netzhaut von einem hinter dem Auge befindlichen Standpunkt wahrgenommen werden. Später (im Jahre 1625) stellte Scheiner den gleichen Versuch mit demselben Ergebnis am menschlichen Auge an. So gelang Scheiner der Nachweis, daß die Netzhaut das eigentliche Empfindungsorgan des Sehens ist und so bewies Scheiner die Ähnlichkeit des Auges mit der Camera obscura. Da er nun wusste, daß die Netzhaut eine Verzweigung des Sehnerven darstellt, erkannte Scheiner, auf welche Weise das Sehen dem Gehirn vermittelt wird. Scheiner ließ sich bei der Beschäftigung mit optischen Fragen von dem Gedanken leiten, daß das Auge ein nach den Prinzipien der Optik gebautes Organ und deshalb besonders geeignet sei, die Grundlehren der Optik zu entwickeln. So entstand dies Werk, es führt den, jenen Gedanken Scheiners zum Ausdruck bringenden Titel "Oculus, hoc est fundamentum opticum", 1619 in Insbruck zu erst erschienen Scheiner zeigte, daß das Brechungsvermögen der wässrigen Feuchtigkeit mit demjenigen des Wassers und dasjenige der Linse mit dem des Glases nahezu übereinstimmen, während das Brechungsvermögen des Glaskörpers zwischen dem der erstgenannten Medien liegt. Der Gang des Lichtstrahls wird dann vor seinem Eintritt in das Auge, bis er die Netzhaut trifft, verfolgt. Die entsprechenden Kapitelüberschriften (Lib.III. Pars I. Cap.VI-XI) geben am besten einen Überblick über den Gang und die Ausführlichkeit der von Scheiner unternommenen Untersuchung. Sie lauten: Brechung des Lichtstrahls beim Übergang aus der Luft in die Hornhaut, Brechung beim Übergang aus der Hornhaut in die wässerige Feuchtigkeit, Vergleich der das Auge zusammensetzenden Medien hinsichtlich ihrer Dichte, Brechung des Lichtes beim Übergang aus der wässerigen Feuchtigkeit in die Kristalllinse, Brechung an der Grenze von Kristalllinse und Glaskörper und Netzhaut. Scheiner gab ferner die erste zutreffende Antwort auf die Frage, wie es kommt, daß das Auge nahe und entfernte Gegenstände deutlich zu sehen vermag. Dieses als Akkommodationsfähigkeit bezeichnete Vermögen erklärte Scheiner daraus, daß die Gestalt der Linse sich ändert, indem die Linse sich für nahe Gegenstände stärker wölbt, für entferntere dagegen sich abflacht. Neben dem Vergleich des Brechungsvermögens durch Immersionsmethoden, der Akkommodation, des Studiums des Strahlenverlaufs im Auge durch den noch heute nach ihm benannten "Scheinerschen Versuch" zeigte er eine Reihe weitere geistreicher Experimente, wie die Messung der Hornhautkrümmung durch Vergleich der Größe der Reflexbilder von Hornhaut und verschieden großen Glaskugeln, die Probleme Gesichtswinkel und Blickwinkel und die damit verbundene Änderungen der Perspektive beim direkten und indirekten Sehen seien nur kurz zur Charakterisierung des Inhalts herausgegriffen. Einige Versuche Scheiners können wir als Vorstufen heute wichtiger optischer Prüfungsmethoden betrachten: In Lib. I Pars II, Kap.2 bringt er einen Schirm mit sehr kleiner Öffnung vor das Auge. Um die Strahlenkreuzung in dieser kleinen Blende zu zeigen, führt er zwischen Auge und Schirm eine Schneide ein. Von dem durch die Öffnung zu sehenden Objekten werden dann zuerst jene abgedeckt, die sich auf der der Schneide gegenüber liegenden Seite befinden. Umgekehrt ist es, wenn die Schneide vor der Blende in den Strahlengang geführt wird. Beim "Focaultschen Schneideverfahren" tritt an die Stelle der materiellen Blende der Fokus bzw. die Kaustik des zu prüfenden Objekts. In Lib. I Pars II, Kap.5-9 bringt Scheiner einen Schirm mit mehreren kleinen Öffnungen (Abstände kleiner als Pupillendurchmesser) vor das Auge und betrachtet ein kleines leuchtendes Objekt. Es erscheint nur dann einfach, wenn es scharf auf der Netzhaut abgebildet wird. Bei Abstands- und Akkommodationsänderung oder bei Fehlsichtigkeit erscheint es in der Anzahl der Blendenöffnungen vervielfacht. Später in Lib. III Pars 1, Kap. 13 variiert er diesen Versuch, in dem er anstelle des Auges eine Linse und einen Auffangschirm verwendet und die Linse bis auf mehrere kleine Öffnungen abblendet. Auch hier wird nur bei scharfer Abbildung ein kleines leuchtendes Objekt einfach abgebildet, sonst in der Zahl der Blendenöffnungen. Wir haben hier das Prinzip der "Hartmannschen Prüfmethode", die seit Anfang unseres Jahrhunderts häufig angewendet wird. Seine Methode, die Refraktion eines Auges mit objektiven Meßmethoden erfassen zu können, ist der älteste Versuch, die Koinzidenz zweier Strahlenbüschel zu zeigen, welcher sich heute im Refraktometer von Hartinger noch wiederfindet. Ferner waren die Realisierung und Einführung der Projektionsmethode, die Anwendung des Fernrohrs mit positivem Okular und mit Umkehrlinse, die Verbindung eines Fernrohrs mit einer parallaktischen Aufstellung wichtige Verbesserungen der optischen Beobachtungstechnik, die wir Scheiner zu verdanken haben. Scheiner verfügte über manuelle Geschicklichkeit. Er gibt an, seine Linsen selbst hergestellt zu haben, und hielt als erster eine Vorlesung über das Fernrohr in Ingolstadt (1612-1614), wobei je eine Konkavlinse und Konvexlinse erwähnt wurde, und es ist ihm in erster Linie zu verdanken, daß das von Kepler angegebene astronomische Fernrohr endlich gebaut wurde. Unter dem späteren Namen "Heliotrophium Telioscopium" benutzte er es zur objektiven Vorführung der unabhängig von Galilei von ihm entdeckten Sonnenflecken. Scheiner leitete aus seinen Beobachtungen die Umdrehungszeit der Sonne und die Lage ihres Äquators ab er erkannte auch bereits die Eigenbewegung der Flecken und erfand den Pantographen bereits 1603.

        Cyprus insula laeta choris blandorum et mater amorum

      Incisione in rame, mm 345x475. Piacevole carta di Cipro, nella edizione senza testo del 1652, arricchita da vari bei cartigli. Tratta da "Accurata Orbis antiqui Delineatio" l'atlante storico, curato da Hornius ed inserito da Janssonius come volume VI del suo "Atlas Novus". La carta è una copia di quella originariamente edita da Ortelio nel "Parergon" del "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". Janssonius, genero di Jodocus Hondius e cognato di Henricus, collaborò alla pubblicazione di atlanti, dopo l'acquisizione delle lastre di Mercatore da parte di Jodocus e dal 1638 fu in effetti colui che guidò l'impresa editoriale, mentre Henricus Hondius lentamente abbandonava l'attività (dal 1646 il suo nome non apparirà più su alcun frontespizio); risultò così divenire il grande avversario della famiglia Blaeu nel secolo d'oro della cartografia olandese. Perfetto esemplare marginosissimo. Copper engraving, mm 345x475; classic map of Cyprus. From "Accurata Orbis antiqui Delineatio", Janssonius' historical atlas with text by Hornius, published as volume VI of his Atlas Novus. Johannes Janssonius (1588 - 1664) was born in Arnhem, Holland. He was the son of a printer and bookseller and in 1612 married the daughter of Hondius. In 1616 Jansson produced his first maps influenced by Blaeu. In the mid 1630s Jansson partnered with his brother-in-law, Henricus Hondius, to produce his important work, the eleven volume Atlas Major. About this time, Jansson's name also begins to appear on Hondius reissues of notable Mercator/Hondius atlases. Georg Horn (1620 - 1670) german historian and professor, composed a number of historical essays but is best known for composing the text to accompany Johannes Jansson's historical atlas.

Most of these are dated: 1689 (the Prince of Orange when crowned King William III of England) and 1697-1704 (including the radical theologian Balthasar Bekker, with a caricature medallion portrait), so the series was probably issued in that year or very soon after. The plates were engraved by his son, the draughtman and engraver Jacob Schynvoet (1685-post 1733), and by Jan Goeree (1670-1731), the most sought after engraver and book illustrator at the beginning of the 18th century.With the title-print somewhat foxed, but otherwise in good condition and untrimmed, preserving the deckles. A splendid series of garden art prints.

Edition originale de la seconde et troisième Défense de Milton. Reliures en plein veau glacé tabac ca 1820. Dos à nerfs ornés de 4 feurons, de filets et de roulettes. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin chocolat. Frise d'encadrement à froid sur les plats avec petits fleurons angulaires. Frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Bel exemplaire. La première défense du peuple anglais contre le libelle de Claude Saumaise, érudit protestant français, rédigé en opposition au régicide de Charles Ier, fut commandé à John Milton par le Conseil d'état d'Angleterre. Cette défense (pamphlet à la fois politique et religieux) vise à légitimer l'éxécution de charles Ier, et la possibilité pour le peuple anglais de s'autodéterminer. Cette première défense deviendra célèbre et fut essentielle pour les relations européennes. Il fut ensuite rédigé un écrit par Pierre du Moulin préfacé par Alexandre More et qui attaquait personnellement John Milton, accusé de relations sexuelles douteuses et d'immoralité. John Milton fit donc un portrait vertueux de son existence en réponse à ses calomnies. Il pensait par erreur que Alexandre More en était l'auteur, c'est pourquoi son troisième libelle porte en titre "contre Alexandre More". L'ensemble des critiques et attaques contre l'Angleterre provinrent d'auteurs protestants. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

      Ferguson, Bib. Chem. II, p. 138 note; Sinkankas 4757; VD 17, 3:302273B. First edition of the German translation of A lapidary , first published in English in 1652 and compiled by Thomas Nicols: ''the first independent gemological book by a British author ... based firmly upon Boetius de Boodt'' (Sinkankas). Nicols lists all the true gems, but also covers fossils, coral, pearls, amber, etc. For each he discusses the forms, appearance, properties (diligently but somewhat sceptically reporting magical, mystical and medical claims), origins, classification, uses, prices, engraving on gems, etc. For pearls he informs us that "the best are found in the Persian Gulf" (English edition), especially near what is now called the Strait of Hormuz (Ormus). He also mentions several other spots in the Arabian Peninsula and Egypt where various gems can be found. Nicols makes an intelligent synthesis of the earlier literature, as well as original contributions primarily in practical aspects related to jewellery, such as enhancing stones with reflective foils or dyestuffs, hardening softer stones, and the related subjects of falsification and adulteration.Browned throughout, otherwise a good copy.

        Sylva, or a Discourse of Forest-Trees, and the Propagation of Timber in His Majesties Dominions

      Third edition of "Evelyn's most important horticultural work" and the first official book publication of the Royal Society. In 1652 the diarist and translator John Evelyn (1620-1706) "began to create the garden at Sayes Court, a project that signaled the beginning of his serious interest in botany and garden history" (ODNB). He developed an extensive correspondence with gardeners throughout Britain and devoted much of his intellectual energy to horticulture, particularly that of trees. The outcome was this pioneering work, written in part as a "protest against the destruction of England's forests being carried out by her glass factories and iron furnaces. The work was influential in establishing a much-needed program of reforestation that had a lasting effect on the British economy" (Norman 745). Sylva also introduced the term "avenue" into English landscape gardening. Published with this edition is the second edition of Terra, A Philosophical Discourse of Earth; the third edition of Pomona, a collection of treatises on fruit trees and cider-making, and the fifth edition of the Kalendarium Hortense, a gardener's calendar that was frequently published separately and proved to be Evelyn's most popular work. As it was deliver'd in the Royal Society the XVth of October...Terra, A Philosophical Essay of Earth... to which is annexed Pomona: or, an Appendix Concerning Fruit-Trees in Relation to Cider... also Kalendarium Hortense; or, the Gard'ners Almanac... All which several Treatises are in this Third Edition much Inlarged, and Improved. Folio (296 x 185 mm). Late 18th-century tan half calf, red morocco label, marbled sides. Main title and Kalendarium title printed in red and black, 8 engravings within the text, 8 pages of typographical tables. Complete with the errata leaf, indexes, dedication, 16-page note to the reader, 2-page advertisement, and 12 pages of poems. Early 19th-century ownership inscription to front free endpaper, occasional contemporary marginalia. Tiny wormhole at head of spine, joints discreetly repaired, minor worming in gutter of early leaves, small spots of dampstain to lower corners of early leaves, three very short closed splits to lower edge of title, professionally repaired tear of about 10cm to first leaf of the index to the Kalendarium Hortense, contents toned with occasional light spots. A well-margined copy in very good condition. Bibliography: Norman 745; Wing E-3518; Garrison-Morton 145.51 (for first edition).
