        Quaestiones medico-legales. Opus, IVRISPERITIS apprime necessarium, MEDICIS perutile, cateris non injucundum.

      Avignon, J. Piot, 1655.. Editio quarta [4]. In-folio. 16 nn. leaves, 127, 788 p., 42 nn. leaves (pages A-M = 6 additional leaves bound in after p. 324). With engraved vignette on title and engraved portrait-plate. Contemporary full calf on 6 raised bands, gilt title on spine, panels and leading edges gilt; little bumped and rubbed, rear cover inkstained, front hinge partially cracked.. Fourth edition of the magnum opus of "one of the founders of medical jurisprudence" (Garrison/Morton 1720, ed. 1621-61). "Paolo Zacchia (1584-1659) was the personal physician of the popes Innocent X and Alexander VII, legal advisor to the Rota Romana and head of the health system in the Papal States. His most important work, written in Latin, is entitled "Quaestiones Medico-Legales" and was published in 9 volumes between 1621 and 1651. Even after Zacchia's death comprehensive reprints were published at several places up to the late 18th century. Zacchia covered all the medicolegal issues of his time including the problem of "malpractice" and medical ethics. He is rightly considered an outstanding representative of his profession, whose "Quaestiones Medico-Legales" gave legal medicine its name." (K. Händel in: Arch Kriminol. 2003 Sep-Oct;212(3-4):65f). - Browned, partially with weak waterstains in the margins, index with traces of worms in inner margin, not affecting the text.

        Museum Wormianum, seu Historia rerum Rariorum, tam Naturalium, quam Artificialium, tam Domesticarum, quam Exoticarum, quae Hafniae Danorum in aedibus authoris servantur.

      Lugduni Batavorum, I. Elsevirium, 1655. Folio (350 x 220mm). pp. (12), 389, (3), with woodcut title-vignette and 139 woodcuts and 13 engravings in the text. Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments, hinges split but firm (label on spine partly gone, a bit rubbed). First edition but without the portrait and the engraved double-page plate of the 'Museum Wormianum. The complete text with all the woodcuts and engravings of this beautifully produced catalogue of the most important North European 'Wunderkammer'. The first four chapters of the work are devoted to mineralogy. "Worm's collection took shape between 1620 and his death in 1654. His last great work was the folio volume 'Museum Wormianum' printed in Leiden and Amsterdam and issued the year after his death. It has secured his name as one of the founders not only of Danish but of European museums. The typographical model of the book was Piso and Markgraf's publication of the 'Historia Naturalis Brasiliae' from which some of the illustrations were also taken ... but the best of them were made in Copenhagen from drawings made under his own supervision... The arrangement of the material followed the principles of Imperato and Calceolari (Impey & MacGregor, The Origins of Museums, p. 123). /"There were some mouth-watering items in this early museum, including a Great Auk which Worm had once kept as a pet... The year after he died a folio volume describing his treasure was published and ten of its pages are devoted to shells, his nomenclature and classification being taken from the works of Gessner, Aldrovandi and Rondelet, the principal divisions of univalves, bivalves and turbinates being fundamentally Aristotelian" (Dance 14). The editing of the present work was done by Worm's son Willum and the collection passed, on Worm's death, to the Danish royal cabinet. One leaf with small loss of paper at the outer margin. A fine copy.//Dance 358; Nissen ZBI, 4473; Wilson, The history of mineral collecting p. 199.

        [In Greek]: OMEROU ILIAS KAÍ ODYSSEIA. [and] HOMERI ILIAS & ODYSSEA, ET IN EANDEM SCHOLIA & INTERPRETATIO DIDYMI

      Lugduni Batavorum: Apud Franciscum Hackium, 1655. First Schrevelius-edited edition n. Hardcover. 248 x 171 mm (9 3/4 x 6 3/4"). [16], 716; 536, [44] index pp. Two volumes. Edited by Cornelius Schrevelius. First Schrevelius-edited edition. HANDSOME 18TH CENTURY RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, covers framed by lovely Neoclassical roll enclosed by double gilt rules, rosette cornerpieces, raised bands flanked by plain gilt rules, spine panels with central gilt medallion containing a narcissus, gilt titling, turn-ins with gilt Greek key roll, purple endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved allegorical title in volume I; woodcut printer's device on title in volume II. Text in Greek and Latin. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of Joannis Petri de Villeneuve. Lang A-17; Willems 1202; Brunet III, 272-73; Moss I, 486; Schweiger p. 158; Dibdin II, 53 (4th ed.) Spines uniformly a bit darkened (with slight dulling of some gilt), a hint of rubbing to extremities, very minor spotting to covers, but the original handsome unrestored bindings generally in fine condition, the leather lustrous, and with no significant wear (the joints almost entirely unworn). Vague browning in the (ample) margins, isolated trivial rust or wax spots, other minor imperfections, but the text fresh, clean, and generally quite pleasing. This is an excellent bilingual edition of Homer's "Iliad" and "Odyssey," attractively printed and offered here in elegantly restrained period red morocco. Moss declares that this edition "is in great request among the curious, and fine copies are very difficult to be procured." Lang tells us that the printing "is notable for its fine layout and presentation of text, translation, and scholia." The Greek text dominates the page, with the smaller Latin translation to its right, and the notes and commentary by pseudo-Didymus and Schrevelius in smaller Greek type below it and clearly marked by line number. As Dibdin and Moss note, Harwood calls this edition "beautiful and correct." That this layout was enviable is evidenced by subsequent imitations (i. e., the Joshua Barnes edition of 1711 and Samuel Clarke's of 1729-32). The scholia of the "Iliad" are reprinted here for the first time since the Aldine edition of 1517. A physician as well as a classical scholar, the Dutch linguist Cornelius Schrevel (1615-84) edited a number of Greek and Latin authors and is best known for his "Lexicon Manuele Graeco-Latinum et Latino-Graecum," published in 1654. That dictionary was printed by Hackius, who, as Lang notes, printed "some copies" of this present edition of Homer under his own imprint, with the bulk of the printing issued simultaneously by the Elzevier family in Amsterdam. The Neoclassical motifs on the attractive binding are in harmony with those of the engraved title, both complementing the enduring ancient Greek narratives.

        La fortificatione, guardia difesa et espugnationdelle fortezze, esperimentata in diverse guerre.

      Francesco Brogiollo, Venetia 1655 - [Figurato Fortificazioni] (cm.40x28) ottimo cartonato originale, sguardie posteriori. -- cc. 7 nn., pp. 83, pp. 83,pp. 128. Magnifico frontis figurato inciso da Filippo Sadeler, con 47(di 48) tavv. f.t. finemente incise in rame da O. Fialetti, con battaglie, fortezze, strumenti bellici ecc. Opera insigne e uno dei più bei figurati del '600 italiano, che contiene quanto di meglio era conosciuto all' epoca in fatto di fortificazioni. L' autore (1579-1638) nativo di Crema, fu uno dei più grandi ingegneri militari del suo tempo, ricco di pratica e di cultura, morì barbaramente trucidato e si pensa per l' invidia che suscitò il suo singolare ingegno. Splendida edizione, la stessa della prima del 1624, in quanto come spiega Riccardi e Marini "Biblioteca Di Fortificazioni" le edizioni del 1630 e 1655 hanno solo al frontis le date e i tipografi cambiati, ottenuti raschiando la lastra di rame. Molto rara, manca alle bibliografie che di seguito elenchiamo e alle quali rimandiamo per confronti: Bm. Stc XVII Cent. Italian, Gamba, Cokle, Choix, Piantanida, Pollak, e michel-Michel. Manca purtroppo il ritratto all' inizio e la tavola 18. Ben 11 incisioni sono a doppia pagina, tutte sono numerate la prima è datata 1624 e firmata da odoardo Fialetti pittore e acquafortista bolognese scolaro di G.B. Cremonini e studiò in Venezia sotto il Tintoretto. Esemplare veramente bellissimo, nitido e a grandi margini con barbe e incisioni in ottima tiratura. * Riccardi II 515; * Marini p.71; * Manzi "Architetti e Ingegneri Militari" n° 119; * Dayala p.123.[f72] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Jus Feudale Tribus Libris Comprehensum: Quibus Non Solum.

      1655 - First Edition of the First Systematic Work on Scots Law Craig, Sir Thomas [1538-1608]. Jus Feudale Tribus Libris Comprehensum: Quibus Non Solum Consuetudines Feudales & Praediorum Jura, Quae in Scotia, Anglia, & Plerisque Galliae Locis Obtinent, Continentur; Sed Universum Jus Scoticum, et Omnes Fere Materiae Juris Clare & Dilucide Exponuntur, Et ad Fontes Juris Feudalis & Civilis Singula Reducuntur. Edinburgh: [s.n.] Impressum Anno. Dom. 1655. [xii], 383, [1 blank] pp. Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards, recent lettering piece to spine. Rubbed with some loss to spine ends, some worming to rear board and head of spine, joints starting at ends, front hinge partially cracked, about half of front free endpaper lacking, recent armorial bookplate (of the Baron de Spon) to front free pastedown, early wax seals to verso of front free endpaper. Light toning to text, internally clean. A solid copy of an important work. * First edition. Unlike previous compilations, Jus Feudale is an original work. "Indeed Craig was the first systematic writer on law in Scotland. The Jus Feudale is not a mere textbook of the law of land rights, but is a learned disquisition upon a great social system. The opening chapters are devoted to an examination of the sources of law in general, and trace the history and development of the Civil, Canon and Feudal laws. If Craig had accomplished no more than that he would have been entitled to a foremost place amongst our jurists, for unquestionably the form of his book not only exemplified the philosophical outlook of the learned Scots lawyer, but provided a model of construction and treatment for his successors" Black, The Institutional Writers 62-63.

        Japonia Regnum

      Amsterdam:: Blaeu,. 1655.. The first map ever to show Korea as a peninsula. This map was the standard form of Japan until the 18th century, and is in it's outline, truer to the shape of Japan than any printed map before the 19th century. It was compiled by Father Martino Martini, an Italian Jesuit, and appears in Blaeu's Atlas Sinensis, the first European atlas of China. It is the first map to correctly show Korea as a peninsula. - Campbell 21; Cortazzi, plate 63; OAG 28. 23 x 16 3/4" and margins.

        Romae Ruina Finalis Anno Dom, 1666

      At the Sign of the Pelican, Little Britain: Johannem Sherlaeum, 1655. The first edition, 1655, of Windet's celebrated rant against Rome and Catholicism, written entirely in Latin. A small quarto tract originally issued as a pamphlet presumably, this has at some time in the distant past been bound into boards covered with marbled paper - paper which had already been printed on, and some text in English is discernable beneath the marbling. All before title page and after Finis missing - if there ever was anything, which is far from certain. Two pages extolling the virtue of the publication; A two page preface dated 25 July 1655; 5 pages of introduction; Followed by the full text of the tract, paginated 1 to 70. A rambling, largely incoherent rant predicting the fall of Rome in 1666, closely printed with extensive marginal references. James Windet's life before he graduated as an MD at Leiden in 1655 is largely unknown - he became a member of the College of Physicians in 1656, and was, according to Wood (Ath. Oxon.) "A good Latin Poet, a most excellent linguist, a great rabbi, a curious critick, and rather shaped for the faculty of divinity than for that facutly he professed" A friend of Sir Thomas Browne, Wilkin, who examined Windet's letters to Browne, states that "they are most tedious and pedantic....utterly destitute of interest". Windet died in London on 20th November 1664 and was buried there on November 24th, thus narrowly avoiding the need to explain away the failure of his prediction! TEXT ENTIRELY IN LATIN.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Fair/No Jacket.

Indeed it is the first full representation of it in print. It is one of the earliest to name "Nieu Amsterdam" (Burden). Publication of this New World Atlas, or "Atlas Novus" was originally begun by Joannes's father Willem Blaeu with the publication in 1635 of two volumes (consisting of The World, Europe, Arctic, Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Europe, Germany and the Low Countries; and France, Spain, Asia, Africa and America), and published in four languages (German, Dutch, Latin and French). After succeeding his father, Joannes Blaeu progressively expanded the "Atlas Novus" to six volumes by 1655, and this formed the first half the "Atlas Maior," extending to 11 or 12 volumes by 1662.

        The Illustrious Hugo Grotius, Of the Law of Warre and Peace

      1655. The First English Translation of Grotius Grotius, Hugo [1583-1645]. [Barksdale, Clement (1609-1687), Editor and Translator]. The Illustrious Hugo Grotius: Of the Law of Warre and Peace, With Annotations. III. Parts. And Memorials of the Author's Life and Death. London: Printed by T. Warren, For William Lee, 1655. [lxxx], [ii], 660, [82 of 92] pp. Lacking index. Two-page list of biblical references misbound at beginning of text after [p. lxxx]. Copperplate portrait frontispiece. Eight-page publisher catalogue. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, early rebacking with raised bands and gilt title, repairs to corners, hinges mended. Some rubbing to extremities, corners bumped, a few minor scuffs to boards, hinges partially cracked. Moderate toning to text, some edgewear and minor tears to preliminaries, repair to fore-edge of frontispiece (with no loss to text). Underlining and annotations in a few places, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Bookplate to front free endpaper. A scarce title. * Reissue of the first English translation, 1654, one of two from 1655, the other with a cancel title page identifying the author as "C.B." First published in 1625 De Jure Belli et Pacis, this momentous work describes situations in which war is a valid tool of law enforcement and outlines principles for the use of force. Though based on Christian natural law, Grotius advances the novel argument that his system would still be valid if it lacked a divine basis. In this regard he points to the future by moving international law in a secular direction. Barksdale's annotated translation, the first in English, appeared in 1654. It includes an original biographical sketch of the author. Barksdale edited this work considerably and added numerous annotations to add a stronger Christian component. These editorial changes reflect contemporary debates about the nature of foreign policy and the roles of civil and ecclesiastical authority. English Short-Title Catalogue R16252.

Il Della Chiesa intese raccogliere nel libro tutte le possibili informazioni sugli Stati governati dal principe Carlo Emanuele II (1634-1675), in modo da formare idealmente una "corona reale" da deporre sul capo del proprio sovrano. Il volume, raro e ricercato, conobbe una riedizione nel 1777. ll Della Chiesa, vissuto fra il 1593 e il 1662, fu Vescovo di Saluzzo, sua città natale, nonché storiografo e consigliere di Vittorio Amedeo I, noto anche per la "Relatione dello stato presente del Piemonte" del 1635.
