BOREL, Pierre
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: "Provena … [Click Below for Full Description]

[2], 54 [i.e. 94] pp., paginated irregularly: pp. 1-46, 27-50, 31-54. 1 vols. 12mo. Eighteenth-century sheep, red leather spine label, lovely copy, early owner's initials on title page and inscription marked through at top edge. First separate edition. Engraved frontispiece portrait by William Marshall. [2], 54 [i.e. 94] pp., paginated irregularly: pp. 1-46, 27-50, 31-54. 1 vols. 12mo. First published in 1648, as part of THE RETURNES OF SPIRITUAL COMFORT AND GRIEF IN A DEVOUT SOUL (Wing D2605). A "third edition" (Wing D2606), also of 1653, appeared under the title THE HOLY LIFE AND DEATH OF ..., but with an entirely different, expanded collation (see OCLC: 12730375). This (Wing D2606A) would appear to be the first separate edition of THE LIFE, and it is quite rare thus: ESTC locates only 2 copies in America (UCLA and the Clark Library). To add to the interest of this copy, the verso of the title leaf bears the engraved armorial bookplate of "John Newdigate of the Inner Temple London Esq: 1702".

London: William Hunt, 1653. Second Edition. Hardcover. Very Good copy of a most interesting title. Quarto (5-1/2" x 7-1/4") bound in early calf with a recent calf spine; [50 (of 52)], 559, [31] pages.

Illustrated with 174 woodcuts in the text. Pforzheimer 115: "The subject and abundant illustrations of this volume make it a desideratum in any collection of curiosa, for it describes and illustrates every conceivable alteration of the human body by man's design or by nature and is of equal interest to the anthropologist and the student of human credulity"; Welcome I, 270. Considered to be THE EARLIEST BOOK ON THE ART OF THE TATTOO AND OTHER FORMS OF BODY MUTILATION. It is a combination of fiction and fact, ancient and modern, brought back to England by early world travelers. The First Edition of 1650 was smaller (a duodecimo) and not illustrated.
