        Szene mit Nymphen am Waldrand und am Ufer eines Flusses einer idealen Landschaft. Radierung nach Herman van Svanefelt (um 1600 Utrecht - 1655 Paris). In der Platte signiert, bezeichnet "Romae". Mit zweizeiligem Vers aus Ovids Metamorphosen unterhalb der Darstellung: "Constitit ad Ramos Mitis Lucina Dolentes, Arbor agit Rimas, et Fessa cortice vivum admovitque manus, et verba puerpera dixit reddit onus; vagitque puer". Gleichmäßiger, leuchtender Druck auf festem Velin. Meist mit Rand, am Unterrand auf die Plattenkante geschnitten oder mit winzigem Rändchen.

      2. Hälfte 18. Jahrhundert.. 43,5 x 73,4 cm (Darstellung). Vgl. B. (Swanefelt) 101. G. B. Volpato malt Landschaften in der Art des Lorrain, besondere Berühmtheit erlangt er jedoch durch seine Radierungen. Auch das vorliegende Blatt geht über die bloße Reproduktion hinaus. Als Vorlage dient Volpato hier eine Radierung Swanevelts aus der Geschichte des Adonis von 1654, doch schafft er eine eigenständige Graphik, bei der das Augenmerk auf die mythologische Szene gelenkt wird: Nymphen bereiten das Bad für den aus der Baumrinde der Mrthe geborenen Adonis, den sie aufziehen werden (aus: Ovids Metamorphosen X). - Minimale Knick- bzw. Quetschspuren im Textrand.

Nicola da Tolentino, die Villa Pamphili al Gianicolo und die Palazzi der Pamphili in der Via del Corso und auf der Piazza Navona. 1660 wurde Baratta zum Mitglied der Accademia di S. Luca ernannt.

        A BRIEFE EXPOSITION WITH PRACTICALL OBSERVATIONS UPON THE WHOLE BOOK OF ECCLESIASTES

      London: Printed by T[homas] C[hilde] for Ralph Smith, 1654. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 165 x 102 mm (6 1/2 x 4"). 4 p.l., 277, [3] pp. Published by Anthony Tuckney, D.D., Master of Saint Johns College in Cambridge. FIRST EDITION. Original unlettered rustic sheep, recently and expertly resewn, rebacked, and recornered. Brinley 560; Sabin 17049; Wing C-6413. A bit of rubbing to edges, boards slightly marked and stained, but the binding now very well restored and generally quite pleasing. Frequent light spotting and browning (but never severe, and noticeable in only a couple of gatherings), one small, dark rust hole, otherwise very satisfactory internally, and in a much better state of preservation than most early American imprints. This is a very scarce copy of an early Americanum, a work based on sermons preached in the Massachusetts Bay Colony by Puritan divine John Cotton (1584-1652), grandfather of Cotton Mather. In the words of ANB, the elder Cotton was "one of the most influential leaders . . . in the first generation of New England&#39;s settlement" and someone who "brought a scholar&#39;s erudition to his practice as preacher, biblical interpreter, disputant, and analyst of spiritual experience." Although his non-conformist views forced him to emigrate from England to America, he was known in New England for his opposition to dissent within the church and was one of the major opponents of Roger Williams, who was banished from the colony for his religious beliefs. The present exegetical text is the source for the wonderful phrase, "to every thing there is a season." The work is rarely encountered in the marketplace, ABPC listing just one copy at auction since 1975.

        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.

        COMARUM [then, in Greek:] AKOSMIA. THE LOATHSOMNESSE OF LONG HAIRE. WITH AN APPENDIX AGAINST PAINTING, SPOTS, NAKED BREASTS, &C

      London: Printed by J. G. for Nathanael Webb and William Grantham, 1654. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. Diatribe against Over-long Locks and Cosmetics, with Warnings of Bleeding Hair and Bodily Afflictions. 152 x 95 mm (6 x 3 3/4"). 4 p.l., 125 pp. FIRST EDITION. Recent unadorned polished calf in the style of the period, raised bands. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of Edward Astle, Esq. (see below). Wing H-429; McAlpin III, 72; Thomason E. 1489(3). Leaves somewhat browned, especially at edges (perhaps from fire?), occasional minor spots of foxing or rust, two pages with one-inch ink blot (one of these partially obscuring a sidenote), one sidenote just grazed by the binder, but still a very good copy of a book expected to be found in poor shape, with nothing approaching a fatal defect. With warnings of acute consequences for libertine expressions of both sexes, this is first and foremost a puritanical diatribe against the fashion for long hair among men, backed by scriptural arguments and the 17th century version of urban legends. Described by DNB as "a man who fought all his life against popular revels and pastimes," Thomas Hall (1610-65) warns here of a dire disease in which matted "snakes" of long hair become infested with vermin and bleed when pricked with a needle. Not lacking in imagination, Hall claims that sufferers in Poland who cut off the offending hair "lost their eyes" or had some other body part grievously afflicted. His aversion to long hair on men is extreme: he mentions approvingly his fellow Puritan William Prynne&#39;s attack on "love-locks," but fears Prynne does not go far enough in condemning the scourge of hirsuteness. After 95 pages of lecturing men on their hairstyles, Hall turns his attention to the fashion crimes of women. Make-up is "the badge of the harlot," and a bare decolletage an invitation to adultery. When Charles II ushered in the Restoration, Hall&#39;s parishioners ushered out their joyless minister, whose sentiments and world view suddenly ran contrary to those fostered by the monarch, and he died five years later. Former owner Edward Astle (1770-1816) was the son of famous antiquary and major manuscript collector Thomas Astle (1735-1803), and was a bibliophile in his own right. The elder Astle also had a library of around 1,500 printed books in addition to his early manuscripts, and it is possible that our volume was once a part of his collection. This is not a common book: OCLC finds just nine copies in U.S. libraries, and the Macclesfield copy is the only other one that appears in auction records since 1975.

      B. Deuersin, & Z. Masotti, Rome 1654 - Folio (8-1/2" x 12-1/2") bound in contemporary vellum; [xxxii (including engraved title-page)], 618, [24] pages. Title page printed in red and black with engraved printer's device; additional engraved title page; woodcut initials; head- and tailpieces; full-page engraved arms of the dedicatee, Ferdinand IV; about 50 tables and several examples of musical scores in the text; 215 woodcut illustrations; and 34 mostly full-page engraved plates. The last, best, and most valuable edition, as well as the first one in folio, of one of the major scientific works by the most famous German Jesuit scholar. Kircher examines all aspects of magnetism-from that of the earth to animals, music, and love--and presents some daring theories such as the positive effects of music on the victims of tarantula bites. He also describes his construction of a magnetic clock and how it functions. Ferguson I, 467; Merill 6: "This third edition of 'Magnes', the finest and most complete of the three editions, was greatly enlarged by Kircher. It contains many observations and experiments not in the two previous editions"; Ronalds 267; STC 461; Wellcome III, 394; Wheeler Gift 116a: "Celebrated work. It deals with electrics as well as magnetics, showing great versatility and encyclopaedic knowledge. He controverts Gilbert's theories in magnetism and those of Kepler in astronomy." Two small institutional stamps on the title page with an early annotation. Worming to the title and first few pages as well as the last few of the index and the binding, extensive on a few pages; the rest of the text fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

This a translation of Camus&#39; &#131;lise, ou, L&#39;innocence Coupable, which was first published in 1621. "Jean-Pierre Camus was one of the most prolific authors of the period 1620-1648. His prose is succinct, without the elaborate rhetoric of authors -- such as Antoine de Nerv&#143;ze -- from the previous generation. He also shows a vast knowledge of poetry. Camus&#39;s first works were strongly influenced by the Essays of Michel de Montaigne, albeit with more religious content. His spiritual works were directly inspired by Saint Fran&#141;ois de Sales; he was critical of mendicant orders and wrote extensively on poverty, grace and spiritual reflection. His fictional works encompass both novels and short stories. His dark and violent stories, often based on contemporary anecdotes or criminal incidents (he wrote over 1000 such works) were in the tradition of the horrific tales ("histoires tragiques") of Matteo Bandello, popular in France in the late Renaissance and early seventeenth century. His longer works show the influence of ancient Greek novels (such as the works of Heliodorus of Emesa and Achilles Tatius), with their scenes of tempests and kidnappings. Much of his fiction has a moralistic intention, showing human folly, the unruliness of passions, the dangers of illicit love, and the saving grace of divine love."

        Manuscript Family History and Autobiographical Writings

      Tall 8vo (10 1/4 x61/4), later half morocco and marbled boards, (60 pages with text) 160 pp. A complete index of names mentioned is included at the rear. Binding well worn, internally disbound with loose signatures, some aging and toning, but text pretty clean and easy to read. The first approximately 60 pages provide a detailed genealogy of the ancestors and descendants of Rev. Grant Powers of Goshen, Connecticut from the first Powers to come to America in 1654. His manuscript takes us to 1840. Following the genealogy there are about 60 pages of autobiographical writings of Rev. Grant, presumably unpublished. However, Rev. Powers was the author of "Historical Sketches of the Discovery, Settlement, and Progress of Events in the Coos Country and Vicinity, between 1754 & 1785." He also delivered an address to the people of Goshen, Connecticut in 1838, which were published. The Powers family included distinguished citizens from several New England states including Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Rev. Powers wrote this family record upon his being diagnosed with Angina Pectoris and in anticipation of his inevitable death. He died April 1, 1841.openlibrary.org.

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

      London: Henry Hills, 1654 Book. Very Good-. Hardcover. 1st Edition. The 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..
