        Anatomia hepatis

      London: Du-Gard for Pulleyn, 1654. "Glisson's Capsule"GLISSON, Francis (1597?-1677). Anatomia hepatis. Cui praemittuntur quaedam ad rem anatomicam universe spectantia. . . . 8vo. [48] 458 [14]pp. 2 folding engraved plates, engraved text illustration, text woodcuts. London: Du-Gard for Octavian Pulleyn, 1654. 165 x 111 mm. Vellum c. 1654, author's name in ink in a later hand on spine. Very fine, crisp copy. Long neat marginal note in pen in an early hand, a few pencilled notes in the same hand. Minute early owner's signature (?) on front free endpaper, along with gift inscription dated October 9, [19]23 from Harry Friedenwald (1864-1950), author of The Jews and Medicine (1944-46; G-M 6501.1), to Louis P. Hamburger.First Edition. Garrison-Morton 972. The first book printed in England to present a detailed account of a single organ based on original research, and the most important book to date on the physiology of the digestive system. Glisson used advanced anatomical methods, such as casts and injection of colored fluids, which enabled him to illustrate the vessels of the liver (portrayed in the two engraved plates). He described the passage of blood from the portal vein to the vena cava, and proved that lymph flows not to the liver, as was then believed, but from it, passing to the recently discovered capsula communis. This fibrous capsule, which Glisson was the first to describe accurately, is now known as "Glisson's capsule." "Educated at Cambridge, where he later served as Regius Professor of Physic, Glisson was part of the extraordinary ferment in medicine and the life sciences that occured in the two English universities in the earlier seventeenth century. Like his influential colleague and friend, William Harvey, Glisson epitomized the English style of biological research: he was theoretically conservative and non-dogmatic; and at the same time he was committed to a rigorous program of experimentation, precise observation, and accurate description. His principal publications, especially the Anatomia hepatis, join an experimental exactitude and direct observation of the particular with a felt concern to preserve basic Aristotelian and Galenic traditions of natural philosophy. . . . Glisson's classic work on the liver . . . was based on dissections that Glisson had done over a decade earlier. It was the first work to recast fundamentally the physiology of the abdominal organs, to delineate the structure and function of the liver, and to identify and describe the fibrous tissue encasing the liver (Glisson's capsule). It also introduced Glisson's important concept of 'irritability,' in which he argued that irritation was the organism's way of recognizing substances to be expelled. The property of irritability was thus basic to the health of the organism" (Grolier Club, 100 Books Famous in Medicine, 29). DSB. Lilly, p. 67. Norman 911. Russell 322.

        Pleasant Notes upon Don Quixot

      London: William Hunt, 1654. First edition. Woodcut initials, head-and tail-pieces. [14], 136, 139-290 pp. ?1 [*]4, [**]2; B-2O4. 1 vols. Folio. Modern full brown calf in the style of the period, raised bands. Occasional foxing or browning; small tear from lower corner of D1, not affecting text. An very attractive copy, handsomely bound. 1654 Commentary on "The Shakespeare of the Mancha" First edition of this commentary on Cervantes, with three early references to Shakespeare. Gayton's Pleasant Notes Upon Don Quixote constantly departs from its ostensible subject to introduce colorful anecdotes of contemporary London. One of the "Sons of Ben," the group of poets and playwrights that gathered around Ben Jonson, Gayton was well-informed about the playwrights of his day The book is especially valued as an early source of three early references to Shakespeare. Shakespeare is named in a list of admirable English writers on p. 21; on p. 95, Don Quixote is called "The Shake-speare of the Mancha"; and on p. 150, in a discussion of poets and mistresses, includes Shakespeare among those English poets who amorous inclinations were restrained by matrimony: "Our Naton also hath had its Poets, and they their wives: To passe the Bards: Sir Jeffery Chaucer liv'd very honestly at Woodstock, with his lady ... and wrote against the vice most wittily, which Wedlock restrains. My Father Ben [Jonson] begate sonnes and daughters; so did Spencer, Drayton, Shakespeare ..." The English translation of the first part of Don Quixote (by Thomas Shelton) appeared in 1612; the second part, also by Shelton, in 1620. Shakespeare died in 1616, and the first edition of his collected plays appeared in 1623.

Se publican varios documentos que sustentan la posición del obispo, entre ellos títulos, provisiones, patentes, cartas,

      1654 - 37 ff. 1654. Impresos numerados, pequeñas manchas de humedad en algunas páginas sin afectar la lectura del texto. En general en aceptable estado de conservación. Este valioso impreso permite adentrarnos en el conflicto que surgió entre Fray Bernardino de Cárdenas, obispo de Asunción, y los padres de la Compañía de Jesús del Paraguay, quienes expulsaron hasta en tres oportunidades al obispo a fuerza de armas para evitar que visitará las misiones del Paraná, Uruguay e Itati. Este conflicto durará cerca de 20 años, extendiéndose desde 1640 hasta 1660 Natural de la Paz, Fray Bernardino de Cárdenas, es quizás el obispo boliviano más famoso de todo el periodo colonial, polémico personaje sobre el cual se ha escrito mucho. Nació en Chuquisaca el 20 de Mayo de 1579, siendo sus padres Don Celestino Félix de Cárdena y Doña Teresa Ponce. Cuando apenas contaba con 15 años de edad, fue enviado a estudiar en Lima, en el Colegio San Martín, considerado entonces el mejor colegio de humanidades del virreinato. Hacía 1600 aproximadamente, cuando apenas contaba con 21 años, Fray Bernardino profesa como sacerdote en el convento San Francisco de Jesús de Lima, y desde entonces se dedica a la labor misionera. Fue guardián de los Convento de Chuquisaca y Lector e Teología de Prima, Visperas, (1614) y Potosí (1620); misionero entre los lecos y chunchos de Apolobamba (1621-1627). Intervino eficazmente para lograr la pacificación en un levantamiento de indígenas en Songo, Challada, Chcapa y Simaco en el departamento de La Paz (1625). Hacía 1628, lo encontramos destinado a la doctrina de Camata, lo que le brindó la oportunidad de recorrer como misionero itinerante gran parte de los actuales territorios del Perú y Bolivia, destacándose como predicador en quechua y aymara. Al año siguiente fue nombrado por el Concilio Provincial Platense delegado para la extirpación de la idolatría. En 1634, publica el Memorial y relación verdadera de las cosas del Reino del Perú”. El 18 de mayo de 1640 Fray Bernardino es nombrado Obispo de Asunción en la Gobernación del Paraguay. Desde el comienzo empezaron los conflictos con los padres jesuitas, quienes cuestionaron su nombramiento, y Fray Bernardino sólo pudo tomar posesión de su diócesis el 20 de mayo de 1642, iniciando entonces una visita a las reducciones jesuitas. Poco tiempo después, un nuevo conflicto surgió a raíz de la diferente visión de Fray Bernardino sobre el servicio personal de los indios. Los jesuitas no aceptaban que los indios de sus reducciones trabajaran para los españoles, punto de vista que no compartía el obispo. Mientras que en las Audiencias de Lima y Charcas la mayor parte de las doctrinas de indios se encontraban en tierras bajo el mando de los españoles, en el Paraguay la situación era completamente diferente. Por otra parte, Fray Bernardino dio oídos a la leyenda de la existencia de minas de oro en las reducciones e informó en ese sentido a Chuquisaca, Lima y Madrid, afirmando que los jesuitas se enriquecían en perjuicio de la corona. La desavenencia más grave se dio sin embargo, por su oposición al catecismo guaraní usado por los jesuitas. Los acusó de herejía, por usar palabras no adecuadas. En realidad, ese catecismo era el de Fray Luis de Bolaños, franciscano, aprobado por dos sínodos diocesanos. Su obispado en el Paraguay dura desde 1640 a 1649 en que es expulsado y mandado preso a un convento de la orden. Comienzan largos años de vida errante dedicándose nuevamente a la predicación de los indios a la vez que se lleva adelante su defensa ante las autoridades para poder lograr nuevamente su obispado. El franciscano Fray Juan de San Diego y Villalón quien firma estos escritos, fue quien se ocupó de redactar los memoriales respondiendo a las acusaciones planteadas por los jesuitas. Recién en 1665 obtiene de la Santa Sede la aprobación de su nombramiento sin las bulas papales y se le ofrece nuevamente la sede episcopal que no acepta por su avanzada edad.

        The Combate between the Flesh and Spirit: as also the wofull with-drawing of the spirit of God, with the causes thereof, and walking in, and after the Spirit, together with the blessednesse thereof, being the summe and substance of XXVII. sermons preached a little before his death ... to which is added The Christians directory, tending to direct him in the various conditions that God God may cast him into, in XV. sermons

      London: Printed by T.R. & E.M. for J. Rothwell, 1654. First edition. Modern cloth. A very good copy; rebound in cloth with new endpapers, faint institutional blind-stamp to title page, tiny deaccession stamp to rear endpaper, occasional faint dampstain or foxing, but quite clean. 8vo. Does not contain 'The Christians directory' (Wing L3145) which may have been issued separately in 1653. Christopher Love (1618?"1651), clergyman, converted to evangelical Christianity in 1633 when he heard William Erbury preach. Later he was appointed chaplain to the regiment at Windsor Castle; but from 1646 on believed that heretics in the army were the greatest threat to Presbyterianism and so became a central figure in an attack on the republic. In 1649 Love became involved in a plot to return the exiled Charles II to the throne of England, for which act he was condemned to death and beheaded three years before this volume was printed. "The volumes of posthumously published sermons show that Love was an able preacher whose method was to apply Calvinist doctrine to both comfort and humble his flock before God," (DNB). This volume was the property of Rev. William De Loss Love, Jr, most probably of Hartford, CT. ESTCR202772. Wing (2nd ed.) L3149 (Variant?).

Wherein the kingdome of nature, & the kingdome of grace, are expounded. For the better understanding of the Old and New Testament. . . .

      . Simmons for H. Blunden,, London: 1654 - Folio [xx], 605, [1] (blank), [4], [23] (index), [1] (blank), [48], [22] pp. With 2 engraved plates on either side of one sheet. Both Durand Hotham’s Life of the Author and the four tables have separate title pages. Full calf in a contemporary style, gilt decorations on covers, spine in compartments with gilt title and decorations; signature of James Bidell on title dated 1827, some browning and spotting, but overall a very good copy. First Edition in English of Boehme’s masterpiece, a mystical interpretation of Genesis. As a young man, Boehme experienced a mystical vision revealing the spiritual structure of the universe as well as the relationships between good and evil and God and man. His focus on the vision of the spiritual universe supports his detailed discussion of the first book of the Old Testament. Now quite rare, Boehme became highly influential in intellectual circles of Protestant Europe, especially in England and Holland.His interests in Paracelsus, the Kabbala, alchemy and the Hermetic tradition are clearly part of the foundation of his writing. His first written work, Aurora, went unfinished, but drew to him a small circle of followers. He has since influenced major figures in philosophy, especially German Romantics such as Hegel, Baader, and Schelling. His influence can be also be traced to the work of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Heidegger. Martin Buber drew heavily from his work, as did Carl Jung, who made numerous references to Boehme in his writings.An intuitive genius, Boehme was one of the great mystical mind of the Rosicrucian period (1610-1625). Boehme (1575-1624) completed this work in 1623, and died the following year. He was highly influential on generations of mystics, especially of the English school. Societies of Behmenites were formed in England (he was referred to Behmen in England); many of them were later absorbed by the Quakers.

        Heresiography, Or a Description of the Heretickes and Sectaries Sprang up in these latter times....

      William Lee, London, 1654, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Poor, Fifth EditionSize: 5¾" by 7¾", Scarce early edition of this important book, first published in 1645, an early catalogue of, at best, variant Christianities, which were then rife in England; this edition is the first to include "the Quakers or Shakers, and the Ranters", though it is not clear who wrote these additions, as Pagitt died in 1647. Other sects described include the Anabaptists, Jesuits, Divorsers, Familists, Antinomians, Seekers, Adanites, Antisabbatarians, Arminians, Nestorians, Robinsonians, Traskites, many others. Later (mid 1800s?) binding, which has failed; the boards are both detached. Title pages (one engraved) both edgeworn, chipped, mended; missing at least one leaf of the 'Epistle Dedicatory': the extant text begins "themselves in holes; now lift up their heads, and vent openly their errors....". Based on an old review in Book-Lore, Volume 1 (1885) quoting some of the content, we believe the missing leaf to have contained a list of the heretic sects described and the dedication to the Lord Mayor et al.; the main body of text is intact. Generally edgeworn, chipped, some staining, paper tanned; close-trimmed, losing the margins of some of the marginal summaries; minor pencil marginalia; ink name (W. H. Daubney, once Vicar of Harlington, Bedfordshire, and Rector of Leasingham, Lincolnshire, author of at least one book) inside front cover.

        Ephemeris Parliamentaria; Or a Faithfull Register of the Transactions

      1654. An Important Source Relating to the Origins of the English Civil War F[uller], T[homas] [1608-1661], Compiler. Ephemeris Parliamentaria; Or a Faithfull Register of the Transactions in Parliament, In the Third and Fourth Years of the Reign of Our Late Sovereign Lord King Charles: Containing the Severall Speeches, Cases, and Arguments of Law Transacted Between his Majesty and Both Houses. Together with the Grand Mysteries of the Kingdome then in Agitation. London: Printed for John Williams and Francis Eglesfield, 1654. [xx], 136, 121-269, [3] pp. Text continuous despite pagination. Folio (10-1/2" x 7"). Recent calf, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Negligible light rubbing to boards. Title page printed in red and black, woodcut head-piece and decorated initials. Moderate toning and wrinkling to text, occasional faint dampspotting. Later tick marks in light pencil to margins, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. A landmark in historical research, this was the first printed collection of Parliamentary addresses. Published during the Commonwealth period to help elucidate the events of the recent past, it records the tumultuous debates between Crown and Parliament during the early regnal years of Charles I. Fuller's preface, considered by some to the best of its kind ever written, "convincingly justifies the concept of viewing recent and current events as historically significant, and studying them in the same manner" (Wing). It is certainly a vivid collection, one that gives you a sense of presence as England moved toward civil war.

        A Choice Manuall, or Rare and Select Secrets in Physick and Chyrurgery [with] A True Gentlewomans Delight. Wherein is contained all manner of Cookery

      London: G.D., 1654. Fourth Edition. Hardcover (rebound in leather). Good Condition. Rebound in plain modern calf. Lacking the portrait, soiling to first title, last few pages chipped at edges, scattered mostly minor stains and creases. (viii), 206; (xviii), 140pp. Cagle 786/788 (1653 eds.), Bitting 201 (1659), Notaker 531.4. First published in 1653, the Choice Manuall was compiled (at least by convention) from The Countess of Kent's receipts by "W.J." (who signed the preface). It's likely that W.J. also compiled the second part, but it's unclear from where. The True Gentlewoman's Delight collects 232 recipes with no real organizing principle. It includes the first recipe for a "fricassee" (frigasie of chickens, lamb) and a wide array of sugar cookery and preserves, including some advance in marmalade technology (see: jelly of pippins and jelly of marmalet). Unlike continental recipe books of the period, this, like a number of others from the same period, was aimed directly and exclusively at (upper class) women. Size: 24mo. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000139.

Sotto il nome di "Sale di Glauber" ancora oggi si indica spesso il solfato di sodio idrato che i medici del tempo di Glauber, chiamarono anche "sale mirabile" per le sue proprietà terapeutiche". Così Diz. Treccani,V, p. 461. Con antiche postille e sottolineature a penna; fiorit., lievi aloni margin. e arross. per la qualità della carta, ma complessivam. discreto esemplare.

        Lothian and Linlitquo

      Amsterdam 1654 - Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) 'Lothian and Linlitquo' from "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” published in Amsterdam, 1654. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Paper size:24"x19 1/2". Condition: Generally good with some minor aging along margins. A map depicting the region around Edinburgh in Scotland notice the exquisite cartouche in the upper right corner. Willem Janzoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was the founding father of the single most important cartographic publishing company in the Netherlands for nearly one hundred years. Blaeu’s firm was based in Amsterdam, the center of European cartography at the time. Blaeu was also the hydographic expert for the famous East India Company and the chief cartographer of the United Republic of the Netherlands. Willem, along with his son Johanne, published the first two volumes of "Le Théatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas” in 1635 by 1672, however, the atlas had expanded into 12 volumes, the "Geographia Blaviana”, depicting in about 600 maps the entire known world with most up to date cartographic exactness of the time. The Bleau-atlasses, meant for the wealthiest Europeans, were produced using exceptionally high quality standards of engraving, typography, paper and hand-coloring, not to mention being expertly surveyed within the company. The maps are among the most beautiful ever made, embellished in the baroque style with ornamental cartouches and marvelous staffages so that the viewer is struck by the decorative value his eyes see.***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***

        His Highness Speech To Parliament in The Painted Chamber, At Their Dissolution, Upon Monday the 22d. Of January, 1654

      Henry Hills, London, 1654, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good-, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 1st EditionThe prior owner, as was his occasional habit, has penciled the items Wing Listing #C7171 at the margin of the first title page, above this a trace of old/mild erasure is evident. The sum of the printing information,"Published To prevent Mistakes, and false copies. LONDON, Printed by Henry Hills Printer to His Highness The Lord Protector, and to be sold at the sign of Sir John Oldcastle near Py-Corner. MDCLIV." The pamphlet has been bound in navy cloth boards and numbers 36 pages (last page is note from Jessop forbidding reprint). Size is 7 3/8 X 5" collation quarto. Spine is neatly labeled in gilt on black. The listed grade may be thought of as a compromise between the restoration, newish and nicely done, and the text which has age darkening and edge chip and other issues which will be specified. Specfically, the title page has a mild crease which may or may not be visible in foto to accompany listing. The first page of text has lower corner piece missing (1/2 postage stamp size) and the last 2 pages have tinier chips out at their lower edge. The lower edge has the sort of unevenness of finishing and consistent darkness that I associate with a natural cutting at time of the books making, the same is the case with the fore-edge. The top edge has micro dog ear and tiny chip coming out at upper corner of 13th page. The later pages, in some cases, have partial number cropping at top, I supect this is as made, as this edge is darkened and surely was not altered to fit the modern reworking. Text is complete and has some fox, wrinkle and so forth, all seeming quite legible even where the typography is imperfect as is the case with the first page, Book

He further discusses incubi and succubi, astrology and the colour of women's cloths (preferably blue, pink, green and white).

He is now remembered mostly for his speculative support for the atomic theory, in chemistry. - Since the times of Hippocrates, physicians had been talking about "convulsions," particularly with reference to children, without clearly defining the meaning of the term and its relation to epilepsy. From the end of the fifteenth century on, when pediatric literature increased considerably, special attention was paid to epilepsy in infancy, and some attempts were made to draw the line between convulsions and epilepsy in children- Sennert for example, believed that in the former the 'materia peccans' aggregated around the spinal cord and the origins of the muscles, and that, therefore, the general commotion was slighter and disturbance of psychic functions absent.

        Guiljelmi Amesii de Conscientia et Eius Jure. vel Casibus. Libri Quinque.

      Amstelodami Apud Ioan. Ianssonium 1654 - Small 12mo, 133 x 68 mms., pp. [x], 450, [20], including engraved title-page, later calf (early 18th century); bookplate removed from front interior board, but a very good copy. The English-born theologian, university lecturer, and Puritan divine William Ames (1576 - 1633) studied at Christ's College, Cambridge, but his non-conformity led him to an academic and clerical career in the Dutch Netherlands. He became Professor of theology at the University of Franeker in 1622 and remained there until his death in 1633. During this period, he produced his so-called magnum opus, Medulla Theologiae as well as the present book, both of which made him famous. His biographer, Keith L. Sprunger records in his ODNB entry,that De Conscientia "pleaded for less doctrinal wrangling and more zeal for 'life and practice conscience and its concerns'. Franeker needed more daily puritanical 'observance'. During his years as professor Ames often called for a 'reformation' to deliver professors and students from love of stage plays, oaths, dicing, masking, swearing, heavy drinking, and Sabbath breaking; instead, they would all work for personal godliness. He warned: unless the godly party acted decisively, the university motto might just as well be changed from Christo et ecclesiae ('for Christ and church') to Bacchus et Bacchantibus ('for Bacchus and the Bacchants')." Sprunger, in his various works on Ames and Puritanism, especially in New England in the 17th century, underscores the importance of Ames's writings in the emigration of English Puritans to and in America.

"Nothing in known respecting this author [Gratius], except that Ovid speaks of him as a contemporary. The poem is heroic, and consists of 536 lines: its style is hard and prosaic; it describes the weapons and arts of the chase, horses and hounds; but the science is rather Greek than Italian, and the information contained in it is principally derived from Xenophon."
