Opus posthumum, Medicinæ pariter ac Chirurgiæ Studiosis perutile [et] necessarium, In quo tot, tam Veterum ac Recentiorum Instrumenta ab Authore correcta, quàm noviter ab ipso inventa, ... Cum triplici ... Indice." "Schultes is famous for his illustrations of surgical procedures and instruments. The first edition (1655) was the only edition published in folio format. This was the most popular surgical text of the 17th century." "Schultes (1595-1645), born at Ulm on the Danube, was a pupil of Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (as was William Harvey) and Adriaan van de Spiegel at Padua where he received a doctorate in medicine, surgery, and philosophy.... His 'arsenal of surgery' was published a decade after his death by his nephew. The work contains accounts of surgical instruments, methods of bandaging and splinting, numerous operative procedures including amputation of the breast, obstetrical delivery by forceps, and one hundred case reports." Iowa 466 "The Armamentarium Chirurgicum, upon which the fame of Scultetus rests, is a remarkable book for its time.

ENGRAVED BOOKS). MOREAU, PIERRE
Paris: Jean Henault, 1656. Fifth Edition n. This is an especially charming engraved prayer book that belonged to a very prominent 17th century French family. Moreau (ca. 1600-48) was a calligrapher and writing-master who also published writing manuals. He designed a special cursive type called "lettres financières," which he dedicated to Louis XIII, who made him a printer in ordinary in 1643. The present item does not use his moveable type, but employs engraved prayers done on separate copperplates, which were then fitted with any one of 16 ornamental borders, featuring birds, mermaids, cherubs, fruits, and flowers. In addition to the borders, there are also a number of engravings of flowers or fruit, as well as images of saints, scenes from the life of Christ, royal arms, and portrayals of the Seven Deadly Sins personified (envy is particularly powerful as a Medusa-like creature accompanied by a mangy dog). According to Guigard, this copy was bound with the arms of Antoine de Buade, Comte de Palluau, counsellor of state for Henri IV, and first steward of the royal household. He had a substantial library, but he died in 1633 (and his son Henri died in 1622), so this must have been bound for his grandson Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac et de Palluau (1625-98), who was known as a bibliophile himself and who served as Governor General of New France from 1672-82 and from 1689-98. Roger Paultre was both a collector and respected scholar of French emblem books and other illustrated works; his collection was sold in 1993 at Drouot.. 164 x 109 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 1/4").

Colom, Arnold
Colom's is one of the earliest obtainable Dutch Sea Charts to show the Sea Coasts of South America. The map shows the coastal features of South America south of the Equator, with a large inset of Central America.  The chart is executed in the Portolan style, with rhumblines and fine coastal detail for the time period. Arnold Colom was the son of Jacob Colom, a well-regarded Amsterdam bookseller, printer, and chart-maker. Colom produced two sea atlases, a guide and pilot for the Mediterranean and a general sea atlas of the World. Colom's Zee Atlas, published between 1654-58, was one of the largest format sea atlases of the 17th Century, with each chart printed from an oversized copper plate. Koeman describes the atlas as "One of the most important atlases in the well known category of Dutch sea-atlases". Apart from its rarity, the Zee-Atlas was of importance for its inclusion of the earliest Dutch sea chart of the New Netherlands to appear in an atlas (Jacob Theunisz Lootsman's chart is believed to pre-date it, but seems not to have been regularly published until later), while the "three charts of the oceans are on the same scale (1:14mill.) as Portuguese and Spanish charts of that time. It marked the first time that such charts were published as atlas sheets" (Koeman IV, p.115).

Engraved title, depicting Martinus of Tours on horseback ready to cut his cloak in two for a beggar) (Condition: Binding slightly worn. Bookplate on the front pastedown. Paper slightly yellowing) (Note: The Latin historian Sulpicius (or Sulpitius) Severus was born in Aquitania ca. 360 A.D. He organized under the influence of Bishop Martinus of Tours a sort of monastic life on his own estate for himself and his friends. His extant works are a vita S. Martini Turonensis, 'which is an apology for ascetism'; and this Sacrae Historiae, a kind of universal chronicle to A.D. 402, 'which is an important source for the history of 4th-century events, (...). The whole book is an interesting attempt to present a 'breviarium' of history from the Christian point of view: it uses Christian chronographers, especially St. Jerome, but also Pagan writers. J. Bernays suggested that for the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D 70 Sulpicius followed the lost account of Tacitus. Sallust and Tacitus are his models in the matter of style'. (OCD, 2nd 3d. p. 983) After the text of the Sacrae Historiae follows the Continuation written by the humanist Johannes Sleidanus, 1507-1556, taken from his De quattuor summis imperiis. This treatise of 90 pages deals with the history of the chruch in the Middle Ages until Charles V. After the Continu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Seth Ward, English mathematician, autodidact, and astronomer, here expands upon Kepler's Second Law of Planetary Motion, one of three fundamental laws of astronomy and physics which is of threefold significance: 1). It describes elliptical orbits with the Sun at one of two foci; 2). Dictates equal areas and equal time intervals swept out by a rotating line segment, and 3). States that the square of the orbital period of a body is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit. The Astronomia Geometrica was essentially Ward's second, and more complete, response to Ismail Boulliau's "Astronomia Philolaica" (Paris: 1645), in which Boulliau attempted to remove some of the notorious difficulties that Kepler's Second Law had presented to astronomers in the thirty-six years since its introduction to science.

"The Lettres provinciales (Provincial letters) are a series of eighteen letters written by French philosopher and theologian Blaise Pascal under the pseudonym Louis de Montalte. Written in the midst of the formulary controversy between the Jansenists and the Jesuits, they are a defense of the Jansenist Antoine Arnauld from Port-Royal-des-Champs, a friend of Pascal who in 1656 was condemned by the Faculté de Théologie at the Sorbonne in Paris for views that were claimed to be heretical. The First letter is dated January 23, 1656 and the Eighteenth March 24, 1657. A fragmentary Nineteenth letter is frequently included with the other eighteen. In these letters, Pascal humorously attacked casuistry, a rhetorical method often used by Jesuit theologians, and accused Jesuits of moral laxity.
