Zacchia, Paolo.
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.

WORM, O.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

James Windet
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.

London: E. Tyler for John Crook, 1655. Folio. 2 engraved portraits, 2 maps, one folding, 1 plate. Contemporary paneled calf. Extremities rubbed, spine chipped at head and foot. A very good copy in an appealing period binding. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Alvarez Semedo (or Semmedo) served as Portuguese Procurado General for China for many years. First published in Latin in 1642, this work is based on the author's observations and is "as yet unaffected by the later racialist or colonialist mythologies" that pervaded the work of later authors (Lust). "Semedo gives more detailed information about the Chinese language than Gonzalez de Mendoza (1585) and Trigault (1615)" (Lowendahl). A splendid Jewish-American association copy from the library of Joseph Solomon Ottolenghe (1711-1775), ink stamp on title, marginalia. Ottolenghe, born Giuseppe Salomone Ottolenghi i Casale Monferratto in Italy in 1711, was invited to England by his uncle.

Later he was appointed as superintendent of the local silk industry and published a treatise on the breeding of silk worms. He served as a member of the Georgia legislature from 1761-1765.

Camoens, Luis de.
London, printed for Humphrey Moseley, 1655.. Folio. (22), 224 pp., plus full-page engraved portraits of Prince Henry the Navigator and Vasco de Gama. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Camoens with verses below. 20th-century red morocco, gilt with all edges gilt and gilt inner dentelles by Bayntun.. The first English-language edition of the epic poem of Portuguese exploration, a monument of Portuguese literature, and a work that gave a Homeric form to Renaissance-era travels and discoveries. "The 'Lusiads', as a synthesis of national sentiment and literary development, stands unchallenged as the epic of the Portuguese nation, and it celebrates more than anything else the voyage of Da Gama and the intrepid bravery of the Portuguese on land and sea" (Lach). Camoens' work was first published in Lisbon in 1572. In the early 1530s the great Portuguese historian, Joao de Barros, most famous for his "Decadas de Asia", called for an epic poem of Portuguese exploration and discovery. That call was answered later in the century by Luis de Camoens (1524-80). Camoens was educated in a monastic school in Coimbra, and produced poetry and plays at a young age. In his early twenties he was banished from Lisbon after producing a play thought to be disparaging of the royal family. He served as a soldier in the Portuguese forces besieging Ceuta in North Africa, where he lost an eye. Camoens returned to Lisbon in 1550, but found himself in more trouble, and was pardoned by the King on condition that he serve the Crown in India for five years. He arrived at Goa in late 1553 and stayed there brie … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAMÕES (CAMOENS), Luis de.
Alden & Landis 655/30; ESTC R18836; Howgego I, C27; Lach II.2, pp.149-60; Penrose, pp.72- 73, 289-90; Streeter 41. First English-language edition of the great epic poem of Portuguese exploration, a monument of Portuguese literature that gave a Homeric aura to Renaissance voyages of discovery and colonial conquests. In mythology Lusus, a son or companion of Bacchus, is said to have founded Lusitania, approximately corresponding to the modern kingdom of Portugal, so the Portuguese heroes of the epic are called Luciads. "The 'Lusiads', as a synthesis of national sentiment and literary development, stands unchallenged as the epic of the Portuguese nation, and it celebrates more than anything else the voyage of Da Gama and the intrepid bravery of the Portuguese on land and sea" (Lach).It gives a fine description not only of Portuguese exploits in the East, but also of the flora and fauna of Asia and India, the ethnographic details of the peoples there, and the geography of the region, informed by Camões's own experiences as well as his familiarity with Ptolemy and Barros.Slightly browned and with some mostly marginal tears repaired, otherwise in good condition. The binding has a minor surface crack at the head of the joint of the front board and an occasional tiny scuff mark at the extremities but is otherwise in fine condition. An epic poem forming a classic of Portuguese literature and of the literature of overseas expansion and the exploration of Asia, by an author with years of experience in Portuguese Asia.
