        Histoire générale des plantes, contenant XVIII livres également départis en deux tomes: Tirée de l'exemplaire latin de la bibliothèque de M. Jacques Dalechamps, puis faite françoise par M. Jean Des Moulins. Dernière édition corrigée.

      - Lyon, P. Borde, L. Arnaud & C. Rigaud. 1653. 2 volumes. Folio (360 x 235mm). pp. (8), 960, (36); (120), 758, (30), with 2752 woodcuts. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments. The second and last French edition of Dalechamp's famous herbal. The first Latin edition was published 1586-87 followed in 1615 by the first French edition. The present edition is the most complete one in the French language. "Dalechamp is considered by some authorities to have been one of the most erudite of the French botanists of the 16th century. His book is a compilation of the botanical knowledge available at that date, and is important as it shows another grouping attemp at a classification of the plants which he described. A number of woodcuts were especially made for the book from plants sent to the author by Lobel, l'Ecluse, and others, but for the most part were taken from previously published works" (Hunt 154). Dalechamp was a student of Rondelet and among his regular correspondents were Conrad Gesner, Joseph Justus Scaliger, Robert Constantin and Jean Fernel.First two leaves of each volumes have the outer margins somewhat browned, else a fine copy.Nissen BBI, 447.

Full calf binding skillfully rebacked retaining the early 18th century blind-ruled boards. Text browned, very minor spotting, few underlinings in text, otherwise clean. Good copy. ---- Carli-Favaro 52 (241); Cinti 301 (155); De Caro 82; Wing G291A, Houzeau-L. 9225; Caspar, Kepler 92. - SECOND EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF SCIENTIFIC WRITINGS (first edition of the collection in this form and 2nd edition of the Institutio Astronomica overall). Gassendi's Institutio astronomica, first published in 1647, outlines the various competing models of the cosmos, notably the Ptolemaic, the Copernican, and the intermediate system invented by Tycho Brahe. This is followed by Galileo's Sidereus nuncius, in which he outlined his observations made by telescope; first published in 1610, this constitutes the third edition of this seminal work. The volume is completed by Kepler's Dioptrice, first published in 1611, which is an effective companion piece to the Sidereus nuncius: Kepler had been researching optics since 1600 but it was the publication of Galileo's work which spurred him to complete his treatise on lenses. It contains the first explanation of myopia and the first design for an inverted astronomical telescope. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Historiarum, et Observationum Medico-physicarum, Centuria prima [-Centuria secunda] In qua, non solum, Multa utilia, sed & rara, stupenda ac inaudita continentur

      12 p.l., 240 pp. Small 8vo, 18th-cent. mottled calf (a few headlines very slightly shaved), flat spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Castres: A. Colomer, 1653. First edition of one of the greatest rarities in the history of medicine and microscopy; I have been looking for a copy for many years. As a testament to the book's rarity, it should be noted that Haskell Norman was never able to acquire a copy, settling only for the second edition of 1656. This is "the first work to apply microscopy to medicine. Borel probably saw the blood corpuscles and Sarcoptes scabiei."-Garrison-Morton 260. The use of the microscope in medicine revealed another world for physicians and scientists. There are also a number of dental and ophthalmological observations. Borel (1620-71), was born at Castres, studied medicine at Montpellier, and began his practice at Castres in 1641. In 1653 he went to Paris and about 1654 was appointed physician to the king. During his whole life he ardently pursued the study of natural history, chemistry, optics, astronomy, antiquities, philology, and bibliography. Among his other works are the first bibliography of chemistry (1654) and the first history of the telescope (1655). Besides practicing medicine, Borel collected rarities, plants, antiquities, and minerals from the town itself and countryside surrounding Castres. The learned dealer Ernst Weil, in his Cat. 16 described a copy of the present book and wrote "a most important work, and of singular rarity." Fine copy. With a note in a late 18th-century hand on the free front-endpaper: "Provenant de la Bibliotheque de l'abbé Sepher (?). 12 Mai 1786." ❧ D.S.B., II, pp. 305-06. .

      Schnurrer 79; Smitskamp, Philologia orientalis 314; De Nave 91; Willems 723; cf. Vrolijk & Van Leuwen, Arabic studies in the Netherlands, pp. 47-48. First edition of Golius's ground-breaking Arabic lexicon, which remained the most important dictionary in European Arabic studies until Freytag's dictionary appeared. Golius based his dictionary on a variety of Arabic lexicographical texts, the most important being al-Jawhari's Sahah and Firuzabadi's Qamus, but he also used geographical and zoological sources such as al-Damiri's book on animals. His dictionary included, moreover, Arabic words derived from other languages, most notably Turkish and Persian, which he translated directly from the source language, using Turkish and Persian glossaries. "The manner in which Golius arranged his dictionary, according to the Arabic root letter and the verbal and substantival forms with all their derivates, is still the fundamental criterion of Arabic dictionaries in European languages" (Vrolijk & Van Leeuwen).Slightly foxed and browned, with marginal restorations and reinforcements in a few leaves (especially the last leaf) and some small worm holes on the fore-edge of the first few quires, but still in good condition. Spine restored at head and foot and with a stain on the front board, but binding also good. A ground-breaking Arabic dictionary.

        De Monarchia Hispanica . Editio novissima, aucta & emendata ut praefatio ad lectorem indicat

      Amsterdam: Louis Elzevir, 1653. 24mo., engraved title, all edges gilt; a very attractive copy in nineteenth-century full red morocco, gilt arms of Henry J.B. Clements on front cover , spine banded and gilt. Attractive small Elzevir edition of this utopian work by the famous Dominican friar Campanella. Chapter XXXI (pp. 274-288) is explicitly concerned with discoveries and settlements in the New World, and he recommends building forts at the mouths of all rivers and harbours "lest the English should break in and bring heresy." Written in 1598 or 1599, and rewritten soon after, this work prophesies the coming of a universal Christian monarchy (said to be the fifth such great monarchy in history) by the Spanish King. Curiously, it was first published in German in 1620, translated, probably by Besold, from Campanella's original manuscript: such an involved publishing history is not unlike many books in Campanella's oeuvre, testament to his unfailing trouble with ecclesiastical authorities; orthodoxy was not his strong point. The first English edition was published soon after this Elzevir edition as A Discourse touching the Spanish Monarchy (London, 1654); an Italian edition did not appear until 1840. Campanella's most famous work is his "City of the Sun", which was first published in 1623 but had been written during his long imprisonment by the Inquisition for sedition and heresy. The City of the Sun was a 'regimented, highly centralised, theocratic society characterized by breeding of human beings in accordance with science, subordination of individuals to the state, and absence of private property' (Gibson, St. Thomas More). It was an early and highly influential text in the development of the utopian genre, written by an author whose twenty-seven year stretch in prison seems to be a record for utopian writers. As Simon Ryan points out in The cartographic eye, although published 'long after many voyages south of the equator, Campanella's story can still utilise the easy transference from antipodes as opposite to antipodes as perverse…'.

Trevor Hall states that this is the third book in English to contain conjuring tricks (page 208, Old Conjuring Books): 'As the author is chiefly remembered as a writer on agriculture it is curious that in the first section a number of conjuring tricks are described and The Art of Memorie'. See Toole Stott, A Bibliography of English Conjuring Books, 1581 - 1876, Volume I page 190, No. 572. Though mentioned in the conjuring bibliographies there are very few obvious conjuring tricks: "A Perspective ring that will discover all the cards that are neareth him that weareth it on his finger", how to hold a hot iron bar without burning one's flesh, secret of invisible ink.

His exploits are known through the posthumous publication in Lisbon of his memoir "Peregrinacao" (Pilgrimage) in 1614, of which our book is a translation of the French version. In the course of his travels in the Middle and Far East, Pinto visited Ethiopia, the Arabian Sea, China (where he claimed to have been a forced laborer on the Great Wall), India and Japan. He claimed to have been among the first group of Europeans to visit Japan and initiate the Nanban trade period. He also claimed to have introduced the gun there in 1543. It is known that he funded the first Christian church in Japan, after befriending a Catholic missionary and founding member of the Society of Jesus later known as St Francis Xavier. At one time Pinto himself was a Jesuit, though he later left the order. (Wikipedia).

This collection includes poems on various subjects, ranging from a Hymn to Bacchus to a description of Venice, a verse on the marriage of the scholar J.F. Gronovius, and an elegy on the waters of Spa, Also in this volume is Italia, inspired by his voyage to Italy, and Christina Augusta, which praises Queen Christina of Sweden, who had invited Heinsius to Stockholm to curate her library.

A good tight copy. Containing recipes and notes on manures, brewing, mnemonics, moulding and casting of metals, distilling (especially of essential oils), fishing etc., and with a description of his mechanical inventions. Trevor Hall states that this is the third book in English to contain conjuring tricks (page 208, Old Conjuring Books): 'As the author is chiefly remembered as a writer on agriculture it is curious that in the first section a number of conjuring tricks are described and The Art of Memorie'. See Toole Stott, A Bibliography of English Conjuring Books, 1581-1876, Volume I page 190, No. 572. Though mentioned in the conjuring bibliographies there are very few obvious conjuring tricks: "A Perspective ring that will discover all the cards that are neareth him that weareth it on his finger", how to hold a hot iron bar without burning one's flesh, secret of invisible ink.
