      1653. 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..

He became a monk in 1610 and later was abbot of Villeloin (16261674). He was the author of many translations of Latin poets and was part of many salons, notably that of Madeleine de Scudery. He is best known for having collected 123.000 engravings (bought from him in 1667 by Colbert for Louis XIV for 28,000 livres) - this acquisition is considered the foundation of the cabinet of engravings in the royal library, though it was only constituted as a department in 1720.- Barbier III, ii 925 d

It was reprinted in numerous editions; after 1583, these were appended with a treatise on the Muses by Geoffroi Linocier. By the end of the 17th century, his name was virtually synonymous with mythology: a French dictionary in defining the term mythologie noted that it was the subject written about by Natalis Comes".

        Moyen universel de pratiquer la perspective sur les tableaux ou Surfaces Irregulieres. Ensemble Quelques particularites concernant cet Art, & celuy de la Graveure [sic] en Taille-Douce.

      Paris, chez ledit Bosse, en l'Isle du Palais, 1653.. Petit in-4, pleine basane de l'epoque, dos a nerfs orne de caissons fleuronnes, tranches rouges (accrocs aux mors, coiffes usees, dos frotte), (8) p., 79, (1) p., 31 planches gravees hors-texte dont une depliante (plus le frontispice et la dedicace gravee compris dans la pagination). Edition originale de premier tirage. L'iconographie se compose d'un frontispice allegorique, d'un feuillet grave de dedicace au grand collectionneur Everhard Jabach, d'un titre grave portant : "Explication par figures et par discours par A. Bosse", et de 31 planches hors texte, dont une depliante, gravees sur 17 feuillets, l'ensemble grave par A. Bosse. C'est dans cet ouvrage qu'A. Bosse livra le resultat des recherches approfondies entreprises avec Robert Nanteuil, sur la question de la representation de la perspective sur des surfaces non planes ("tableaux ou surfaces de diverses situations & differemment courbes en voute, en angle"). "C'est a A. Bosse que revient l'approfondissement de la question de la perspective atmospherique, peut-etre en vertu de sa pratique d'aquafortiste, ou le travail des morsures necessite une grande maitrise de la differenciation des valeurs et des plans dans l'espace. La volonte de s'adresser aux peintres conduit Bosse a vouloir faire de ce principe rationnel une procedure qui s'inscrit dans la meme logique operatoire, numerique donc, que le devis arguesien, comme elle le pousse a penser la question non plus en termes seulement graphiques, mais en termes de couleurs" (cf. BnF, 'Exposition virtuelle', Abraham Bosse). (Brunet, I, 1127). Provenance: le graveur Nicolas-Jean-Baptiste de Poilly (1712-1780) avec sa signature autographe au verso de la garde blanche ("N.-B. de Poilly") et ex-libris du comte d'Haussonville, grand-louvetier du Roi.

      Oxford, printed for Tho: Robinson, 1653.. Whereby the value of lands may be much improved, in a short time, by small cost, and little labour. Also discovering some dangerous errors, both in ye theory and practise of ye art of planting fruit-trees. With the alimentall and physicall use of fruits. Togeather with The Spirituall use of an orchard: held-forth in divers similitudes betweene naturall & spirituall fruit-trees: according to Scripture & Experience. By RA: Austen. Practiser in ye art of planting. FIRST EDITION 1653, in two parts, small 4to, approximately 180 x 135 mm, 7¼ x 5½ inches, engraved title page with large illustration of an orchard and formal garden signed I. Goddard sculp., at the top of the title page are the words: &#39;Profits&#39; and &#39;Pleasures&#39; joined by 2 arms clasping hands, a few decorative head- and tailpieces and initials, pages: engraved title page, [24], 29, 32-97; [13], 32, 35-41, [1], jumps in pagination in all copies, register and text continuous, collation: (pi1), ¶-¶¶¶4, A-M4; *4, **2, P-T4, the second part "The spirituall use, of an orchard; or garden of fruit-trees" has separate divisional title page and pagination, register is continuous although curiously signed on the prelims, handsomely bound in modern ornately gilt panelled red morocco, raised gilt bands and gilt rules to spine, no lettering or label, all edges gilt, new endpapers. Title page faintly browned, small neat repair to lower outer corner, 8 mm (3/8") light brown spot on subtitle, no loss of legibility, small closed tear to lower margin of D3, neatly repaired, small light brown ink smudge to lower corner of page 95, no loss of legibility, showing faintly also on page 96 and 97. A very good clean copy. Ralph Austen (d. 1676) was a proctor of Magdalen College Oxford and devoted his life to gardening and writing on the subject. "Although the beginning of the work is interspersed with texts from the Bible, and is typical of the puritanical style of the day, the Treatise as a whole contains much useful information on the planting and care of trees. Of particular interest is a section headed &#39;Errors discovered&#39;. Here the author exposes a number of the old superstitions to be found in garden literature and also draws attention to some of the errors practised by gardeners." Blanche Henrey, Volume I, page 170 and page 229, No. 5. Austen&#39;s sequel to his book on fruit trees is concerned wholly with divinity although he brings in analogies and examples from fruit growing. Austen was active within the Calvinistic circle surrounding Samuel Hartlib, whose members saw spiritual, as well as practical significance in agricultural and horticultural practice. (Wikipedia).

Quarto, [26], 274, [12] pages, engraved pictorial title and second text title, beginning "All clearly demonstrated...", two folding engraved plates and three full-page woodcut illustrations. Third Edition. "Blith wrote two books on husbandry which surpass all others of their time for their practical good sense, their evidence of his own and others&#39; farming experience, the candour of the author&#39;s judgments and opinions, and the care given to describing new farming practices and making textual changes as time and improved knowledge permitted. His The English Improver, or, A New Survey of Husbandry (1649), offering six pieces of improvement, was dedicated to both houses of parliament and the &#39;ingenuous reader&#39;. In the same year another edition appeared. A so-called third impression was &#39;much augmented&#39; (1652) and was, in fact, a thoroughly revised work. It was entitled The English Improver Improved, or, The Survey of Husbandry Surveyed, and its second part contained Six Newer Pieces of Improvement" - Oxford DNB. Fussell stated that "for really practical advice, [Blith&#39;s] English Improver is probably the best of the bunch." and Ernle mentions that Blith is thorough on the issue of field drainage.

Significant chipping around the edges of the engraved title page, few small early ink marks throughout, but otherwise generally clean and tight. in worn, brown calf board, simply rebacked in brown calf, with gilt titling to spine.

SEE PHOTOS- More photos available on request.- Jean Daillé [Dallaeus] -He was born at Châtellerault and educated at Poitiers and Saumur. From 1612 to 1621 he was tutor to two of the grandsons of Philippe de Mornay, sieur du Plessis Marly. Ordained to the ministry in 1623, he was for some time private chaplain to Du Plessis Mornay, whose memoirs he subsequently wrote. In 1625 Daillé was appointed minister of the church of Saumur, and in 1626 was chosen by the Paris consistory to be minister of the church of Charenton. Works:- Of his works, which are principally controversial, the best known is the treatise Du vrai emploi des Pres (1631), translated into English by Thomas Smith under the title A Treatise concerning the right use of the Fathers (1651). The work attacks those who made the authority of the Fathers conclusive on matters of faith and practice. Daillé contends that the text of the Fathers is often corrupt, and that even when it is correct their reasoning is often illogical. In his Sermons on the Philippians and Colossians, Daillé vindicated his claim to rank as a great preacher as well as an able controversialist. He was president of the last national synod held in France, which met at Loudun in 1659 (HM Baird, The Huguenots and the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, 1895, i. pp. 412 if.), when, as in the Apologie des Synodes d&#39;Alençon et de Charenton (1655), he defended the hypothetical universalism of Moses Amyraut. He wrote also Apologie pour les Eglises Réformes and La foi fondée sur les Saintes Écritures. His life was written by his son Adrien, who retired to Zürich at the revocation of the edict of Nantes.

        The Anatomical Exercises?concerning the motion of the Heart and Blood. With the Preface of Zachariah Wood Physician of Rotterdam. To which is added Dr. James De Back his discourse of the Heart?

      Printed by Francis Leach, for Richard Lowndes,, London 1653 - First edition in English of the Exercitatio Anatomica De Motu Cordis (1628) in which was described the discovery and proof of the circulation of the blood. ?The most important book in the history of medicine. Harvey proved experimentally that in animals the blood is impelled in a circle by the beat of the heart, passing from arteries to veins through pores (i.e. the capillaries, seen by Malpighi with the microscope in 1660)? (G&M). It should also be regarded as ?the first record of a complete biological investigation, giving a clear and accurate description of the methods employed to recognise the laws governing an important vital process, a knowledge of which had till then been befogged by mistaken conceptions?? (H.P. Bayon in Keynes).The translation is from the Rotterdam edition and includes the additional commentaries by Zachariah Wood and James De Back. This edition also contains the first English translation of Exercitio anatomica de circulatione sanguinis (of which the first edition had appeared in Latin at Cambridge in 1649) again taken from the Rotterdam edition. This is an important text in its own right, providing a restatement of Harvey?s hypothesis concerning circulation supported by further experimental proof.Harvey?s hypothesis, like almost all revolutionary hypotheses, was initially very unpopular and was widely refuted. Harvey himself admitted that his career was nearly destroyed by the publication of De Motu Cordis. However, it is interesting that Harvey was quickly vindicated and that the circulation of the blood became accepted as irrefutable medical fact within his own lifetime, albeit towards its end. This lifetime edition in English reflects that vindication. Keynes wrote of the text ?It gives a vigorous if unpolished, rendering of Harvey?s book in contemporary language.?This is an unusually tall copy. In most copies the headlines, and sometimes even the top lines of the text, are shaved. In this copy none of the headlines is shaved, and on some leaves the lower edge is uncut. This copy has 11 of the 13 misprints (to pagination and signatures) listed by Keynes that were corrected as the book passed through the press. In addition, F3 is mis-signed F5. It is complete with the first blank leaf. 3 parts in 1 volume, 8vo (157 × 94 mm), pp. [xl] leaves (including the first blank); [xx], 123, [ii], 86. Title a cancel as in most copies, divisional titles to the second and third parts. Upper corner of the front free endpaper and the first blank leaf torn away, some very minor worming in upper inner corner towards the end touching a few letters, some light foxing and minor soiling. Original publisher?s sheep, a little cracked and marked. Expertly rebacked preserving almost all of the original blind-ruled backstrip, two small lacunae in the leather of the lower cover and tip of one corner worn. Preserved in a modern cloth box. Early signature of Robert Apsley at top of title. A very good copy. [Wing H1083. See G&M 759, Printing and the Mind of Man 127, etc. (the first edition of 1628).

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. Katherine Bitting , Gastronomic Bibliography, page 373; Sotheby's Craham Collection, No. 71. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.
