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'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).

Wherunto is added, A rare and excellent Discourse of Minerals, Stones, Gums, and Rosins (sic); with the vertues and use thereof. By D.B. Gent.

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.

Pieter van Foreest, also called Petrus Forestus (Alkmaar, 1521 Alkmaar, 1597), was one of the most prominent physicians of the Dutch Republic. He was known as the Hollandic Hippocrates. During his practice years in Alkmaar, Forestus began to take notes on the maladies of his patients, and how he treated them. Later he arranged the data and eventually collected over 1350 Observationes with appropriate Scholia. The Observationes were personal perceptions of patients and diseases, and formed the basis for the subsequent Scholia, initially dedicated as a separate monograph to personal acquaintances such as Prince Maurice of Orange, and city governments, like those of Alkmaar, Delft, Leiden, Amsterdam and Enkhuizen. In 1609 all his monographs and the treatise on urinalysis were bundled and published in Frankfurt as the Opera Omnia. Numerous reprints followed, of which this work is one.

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 (fist 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..

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).

        [Title in Greek] VETUS TESTAMENTUM GRÆCUM EX VERSIONE SEPTUAGINTA INTERPRETUM, JUXTA EXEMPLAR VATICANUM ROMÆ EDITUM, ACCURATISSIMÈ & AD AMUSSIM RECUSUM

      Londini: Excudebat Rogerus Daniel: prostat autem venale apud Joannem Martin & Jacobum Allestrye, sub signo Campanæ in Cometerio D. Pauli, 1653.. [8],1279,[1]; 186,[2] pp. plus terminal blank. Quarto (signed in 8s), 195 X 143mm. Old vellum, titled and dated in manuscript on the spine. Terminal leaves slightly soiled, two ownership inscriptions on front endsheets, and small Lincoln's Inn release/sale stamp, vellum a bit handsoiled, occasional modest foxing and dusting along upper margins, but a very good copy. The first edition of the Septuagint printed in England (with the Scholia), the scarce printing in quarto format. The text is derived from the Sixtine text, and edited by John Biddle (1615-1662), the Unitarian controversialist who was imprisoned by the Parliamentary Commissioners for his religious views. THE SCHOLIA ... has a separate title- leaf, register and pagination. The same setting was imposed in both quarto and octavo formats, the latter with rules separating the columns of text. In regard to institutional representation, the edition in quarto is much more uncommon than that in octavo: ESTC locates 4 copies of the quarto printing in North America, as opposed to 19 of the octavo printing. Occasionally, Daniel's reprint of the New Testament is bound up with the octavo printings to form a complete Bible. Brunet cites that format, but notes the sale of a copy on “Gr. Pap.,” presumably a copy in this format. Over the last 35 years, ABPC records sale of one copy in quarto (1999) and four in octavo. ESTC R12599 & R236817. WING B2718 (octavo edition only).

        The Holy Bible: containing the Old Testament and the New: newly translated out of the originall tongues, and with the former translations diligently compared and revised

      London: Evan Tyler for a Society of Stationers, 1653. 12mo (14.8 cm, 5.8"). [936] pp. This "authorized" Bible (i.e., King James Version) was printed by Evan Tyler, the King's Printer for Scotland in 1641–52 and 1660–72, for "a" society of stationers; "not," as NUC Pre-1956 notes, "'the' society, but a body who pretended that they possessed the ma[nuscript] of 1611, and claimed the copyright." The text, which in this edition does not include the Apocrypha, is printed 66 lines to a full page => ruled in bright red with the dedication's text additionally surrounded by an ornamental type border of small fleurs-de-lis. The title-page, engraved by W. Marshall, is => beautifully hand-colored in shades of red, green, yellow, brown, grey, and purple. A separate woodcut title-page, elaborately red-ruled but uncolored, introduces the New Testament. Binding: 18th-century full mottled crimson morocco, covers tooled in gilt with a rope and coin roll border, framing a single stamp of a Saracen ducally crowned, the => gilt supra-libros of Albemarle Bertie at the center of each board, gilt along the board edges and turn-ins in a floral roll pattern; spine gilt extra with a leafy flower tool in each of six compartments divided by gilt rolled raised bands; all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, and a green silk marker. Provenance: Ownership signature of Albemarle Bertie, 9th Earl of Lindsey (1744–1818), British general and sometime member of Parliament for Stamford (front fly-leaf verso), with his supra-libros as above and his armorial bookplate (front pastedown). Small circular booklabel above Bertie's on front pastedown with initials “M.A.H.” beneath a crown, likely for the M.A. Huntley who signed the front fly-leaf in ink. Presentation inscription on front fly-leaf of the Rev. Payne Edmunds, the earl's cousin, to a “much valued & esteemed freind” [sic] whose name (M.A. Pegus?) cannot quite be made out, dated 14 March 1840. The coat of arms for => Bertie County, North Carolina, incorporates the same shield, helm, and crest, as the arms of our Albemarle Bertie, whose relatives James and Henry Bertie acquired that land from the original Lord Proprietors before 1729. This Bible is => scarce: Just two copies were found in U.S. libraries via WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956. Wing (rev. ed.) B2237; Herbert 631; ESTC R229989 (bound with Sternhold & Hopkins' Book of Psalms); L. Wilson, Bibles . . . in English, I, 183. Not in Darlow & Moule. On Bertie County, see: "James & Henry Bertie, Namesakes of the County," in The Bertie Historical Association, vol. II, no. 2 (Oct. 1954). Binding as above; leather darkened more or less evenly all over to a rich russet, lightly worn along the front joint with an old inch-long repair at the top, board corners lightly bumped, front supra-libros rubbed from use, at the spot, imaginably, where Bertie put his thumb. One small tear to a later leaf, the very lower outer corners of a few leaves torn away to no adverse effect, and a minute chip to the edge of the title-page; text remarkably clean with instances of off-setting from the hand-coloring the only "stains.

        The Compleat Angler or the Contemplative Man's Recreation,

      London: By T. Maxey for Rich. Marriot,, 1653. Being a Discourse of Fish and Fishing, Not unworthy the perusal of most Anglers. Octavo (136 × 85 mm), without final blank R4. Early 19th-century half calf, spine gilt-lettered direct, divided in compartments by decorative rolls with gilt roundels between, marbled sides, sprinkled edges. Early 20th-century morocco backed slipcase and chemise by James Macdonald Ltd, New York. Engraved title vignette, 6 engraved vignettes of fish, 2 pages of music. Blank flyleaf inscribed "Robert H. Meyricke from his Mother Mary Meyricke Octr. 28th 1882"; book label to front pastedown. Short tear without loss in I7, a few headl.ines cut close and very rarely shaving a letter (M3), fore-margin of the leaf of music at page 216 shaved with slight loss, light waterstains affecting a few leaves, overall a very good, honest copy of a work that is often found defective or made-up. First edition of the most famous work in angling literature. "A first Walton confers distinction upon its owner " (Westwood & Satchell). There are various typesetting errors in the first edition, although corrected and uncorrected sheets seem to have been issued indiscriminately, with little significance to the priority of issue. In the present copy "contention" (a mistake for "contentment") is uncorrected on page 245; the bass voice of Henry Lawes' "Angler's Song" (p. 217) is printed upside down, the idea being for two singers to stkand opposite each other sharing the score (this idea is abandoned in other copies). The second edition was heavily revised and expanded by more than one third, "which gives to [the first] edition an importance other than that due [to] its priority" (Pforzheimer). "The Compleat Angler was conceived as dialogue between men travelling on foot who each represented a different recreation. In the first edition there were two, Piscator (fisherman) and Viator (traveller) … By this means the art of fishing was introduced, defended, and expounded: its strong precedent in the fishermen apostles of the New Testament was established, the detail of baiting for, catching, and cooking different kinds of fish was catalogued, and the whole was accompanied by aphorisms which would show the reader what it might mean to live well … [The work] has commanded huge popularity: it has been reprinted almost as many times as A Pilgrim's Progress" (ODNB).

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.

        An Humble Apologie for Learning and Learned Men,

      First (and only) Edition, viii, 263, [1]pp, 8vo, a good copy in recent panelled calf old style, London, T.M. for M.M., G. Bedell and T. Collins, 1653. Wing W.1048. Madan, Oxford Books, A Bibliography of Printed Works Relating to The University and City of Oxford, III, p.23 (item 2212): "Chiefly an appeal [for learning] on general grounds, but there is an historical section on pp.43-72..." Edward Waterhouse (1619-1670) was educated at Cambridge University but spent some years at Oxford in order to pursue his studies in the Bodleian Library. He later moved to Sion College London and it was during this period that he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society; eventually he became a preacher.Waterhouse's Humble Apologie for Learning and Learned Men was his first work. "My emulation is to propose Learning & Learned Men, as the Horsemen and Chariots of any Nation, and to discover that without them a People can expect nothing but Barbarity and Bestial Vulpinariness.. the More men are sunk in ignorance, and estranged from Arts and Sciences, the nearer come they to the life of Beasts and Savages: for unless the power of the mind, by which we are distinguished from Brutes, be by liberal sciences ordered and modified, all their virtue and nobility will degenerate into not only a likeness to, but into a degree of rudeness beyond beasts" (p.7) Waterhouse gives a survey of learning in Britain from the earliest times to his present, listing the colleges of the two Universities (Oxford and Cambridge) and giving historical notes (p.67ff). He goes on to defend the university and the scholar, particularly against the charges of unmanliness:"It is a vanity for men to hope to manage war well without learning, or Conduct from learned men, as grosse an one as for a blind man to boast of discerning the least imaginable Atom, without Organ or Medium thereto. I know there are many conclusive, that books Effeminate the mind, and by a kind of softness so Incandorate it, that no good look is reserved for Manly Acts.. But this is rather a Calumny, than a just Charge on Learning.. Experience tells us, that the greatest Actors and Actions that have ever been on this stage of earth performed, have been by learned men..." (p.126). Photograph available on request.

Some offsetting or show-through from the plates and 4 pages with some soiling, other pages very clean and crisp (possibly washed but print & plates entirely dark and crisp). Now lacks 2 leaves (Vv 3-4): 2 leaves were removed from this place when it was rebound (binder's note in German) but these pages obviously came from ANOTHER edition as they do not complete the sense of the missing pages. The removed pages are tipped in to the rear endpapers. These are NOT the two pornographic pages (Pp6 & Bbb4) which are often taken out but are here present. *An extensive, well illustrated work on lamps using examples from the museum of Joan. Galvani engraved by Jo. Georg. The text includes how fire is used in religious and other ceremonies, and gives inscriptions, symbols and with elucidatory side notes. The first edition was less than half the size (small 4to) and had many fewer pages and only 17 woodcuts. The folio editions are thus prefered and are nearly a new work.
