        A Late Discourse Made in a Solemne Assembly of Nobles and Learned Men at Montpellier in France; Touching the Cure of Wounds By the Powder of Sympathy; with Instructions How to Make the Said Powders; Whereby Many Other Secrets of Nature are Unfolded.

      London: R, Lownes and T. Davies, 1658. [10] 152 [+1]. This copy lacks the blank leaves at the front and back. This is an elegant full leather binding with all edges gilt. The covers and spine are geometrically decorated, that is with all straight lines. The endpapers are marbled. This copy has one slight defect on pages 145-146. A smallish piece of this leaf was missing and has been skillfully been made whole. Ten words that were missing have been supplied in manuscript (printed in black ink). Nine of the words which have been supplied are clear, but one is obscure. The pages are a bit browned, but not seriously so. There is very little foxing. This is the very rare first English edition. It is Osler 2457 and Wing D1435. Osler has a long annotation and was fascinated by the rarity of this work. The DSB speaks of Digby's cure as follows: "In 1657 his increasingly poor health led Digby to take the waters at Montpellier, where he gave his famous account of the 'powder of sympathy,' which cured wounds by being rubbed on the weapon that inflicted them. It was a strong solution of vitriol (copper sulphate) in rainwater, which could be imnproved by drying in the sun and by mixture with gum tragacanth. It worked by a combination of occult and natural powers, that is, by attraction and by the small material particles given off by all objects." (DSB4.95b). First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall.

Whereunto is added one book containing philosophical and prudential rules how man shall become excellent in all conditions, whether high or low, and lead his life with health of body and mind. Fit for the use of those that practise physick, and all others that desire to search into the hidden secrets of nature, for increase of knowledge. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION 1658.

A very good tight copy of the scarce English first edition. First published in Latin in Antwerp in 1559 in two books, it was reissued in 1564 enlarged to 4 books. It was enormously popular on the continent of Europe translated into Italian in 1560 and into French and German in 1567 and 1575. Although it continued to be reissued in Latin well into the 17th century it was not translated into English until 1658. Levinus Lemnius or Lemmens (1505 - 1568) was born at Zirickzee in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. At first he studied theology, then medicine under the famous anatomist Vesalius. He graduated at Padua in 1525 and then practised medicine successfully in his native town. He was a friend of Dodoens and Conrad Gesner. This work was his most famous and important, a Book of Secrets with large sections on medical matters and natural history: procreation and birth, medicinal plants, influence of the moon on plant growth, epilepsy, sleepwalkers, sleeping with an open mouth, the benefits of wine drinking, alcoholism, healing power of gemstones. In addition he is very interested in the occult and extraordinary natural phenomena, miraculous happenings, monsters and monstrous births.

      Breslau, Johann Lischke und Jakob Trescher, 1658. - Titelauflage der im Vorjahr unter dem Titel 'Teutscher Gedichte, Erster Theil' erschienenen höchst seltenen ersten Sammelausgabe der Werke des größten Dichters des deutschen Barock. Den Orig.-Bogen des Drucks von 1657 wurde nur ein neues Titelblatt vorgehängt und der sehr seltene erste Druck des 'Peter Squentz' wurde beigegeben. Dem vorangegangen war lediglich die Sammelausgabe von 1650, die nur den 'Leo Armenius', 'Oden' und 'Sonnette' enthielt. Diese wesentlich erweiterte Ausgabe enthält in den 10 für sich paginierten Teilen folgende Dichtungen, darunter mehrere Erstdrucke: 'Leo Armenius', 'Catharina von Georgien', 'Carolus Stuardus', 'Felicitas', 'Cardenio und Celinde', 'Majuma', 'Kirchhoffs-Gedancken', Oden (Teil I-III), Oden (Teil IV) und Sonette. Die Widmung datiert vom 1. Januar 1657. "War je ein Dichter bei reicher und umfassender Begabung und hoher menschlicher Würde, Spiegel des wahren, des inneren Zustandes seiner Epoche, so ist dies Gryphius" (Wolfskehl). Er markiert in mehrfacher Beziehung einen Wendepunkt in der Geschichte der neueren deutschen Poesie: Gryphius ist nicht nur Pionier einer neuen Formwelt, sondern vollendeter Träger eines – selbst erlittenen – neuen Weltbildes. "Wenn man von einem Barockdramatiker sagen darf, er trage das Leid, den durch Leidenserfahrung emporgewachsenen Pessimismus, die Tragik eines aus tausend Wunden blutenden Volkes und infolgedessen das bittere Wissen um die Fassadenhaftigkeit der Welt und ihrer Schönheit in sich und in seinem Werk, dann ist das der Schlesier Andreas Gryphius" (Kindermann). Schon zu Lebzeiten galt Gryphius als eine der bedeutendsten Dichterpersönlichkeiten der Epoche. Unter dem Gesellschaftsnamen "Der Unsterbliche" wurde er 1662, zwei Jahre vor seinem plötzlichen Tod, in die Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft aufgenommen. "Seine Tragödien und Lustspiele wurden von den Zeitgenossen nicht weniger bewundert als die über 650 lyrischen Dichtungen (darunter ca. 270 Sonette), deren großartige Sprachgewalt noch heute überwältigt" (Dünnhaupt). – Durchgehend gleichmäßig leicht gebräunt. Wenige Flecken. Schönes Exemplar. Seit über 50 Jahren nur ein defektes Exemplar im Handel nachweisbar. – VD17 23:233369H und 23:276899F (Peter Squenz); Dünnhaupt 2.2; Faber du Faur 628; Szyrocki 44.

        Novissima et Accuratissima Totius Americae Descriptio

      Amsterdam, 1658. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Rare first state of Visscher's map of North and South America, one of the most influential mappings of the western hemisphere in the 17th century. "Although the map did not provide much in the way of cartographic advances, it had a large influence, future cartographers drawing upon either its geography or the distinctive cartouches. One of the most recognisable features is the large open lake in the place of the western Great Lakes ... The title is decorated with a scene showing the panning of gold or silver, with a native standing by under an umbrella. The cartouche top left bears a dedication to Cornelis Witsen, and depicts three angels helping a native Indian to heaven while the devil is fading away" (Burden). Cartographically, the map follows Blaeu's mapping from his world map of 1648, though depicts California as an Island as per the Briggs model. The map would be reissued after 1677, that second issue bearing a privilege line at the bottom of the map not present on the first issue. This map would prove influential to many future mappings of the western hemisphere, with similar maps issued by De Wit, Danckerts, Allard, and Ottens to the end of the 17th century.

        Imperii Sinarum nova descriptio. Auctore. Joh van Loon

      [Amsterdam: Jansson, 1658. Hand-coloured copper engraved map. Extensively and expertly restored where image had been cut. A good copy of this rare early map of China. This attractive and important map was first published in Jansson's Atlas Novus in 1658, but remains relatively rare as it appeared in only a few editions of the atlas. It was re-issued from the 1690s onwards by Valk & Schenk who added their imprint to the plate just under the sea-battle between the two western ships off the coast of Hainan. The map was drawn by cartographer Jan van Loon who managed to improve on earlier maps with greater accuracy and more detail: in particular, the coast around Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou is very carefully mapped. The two charming vignettes are particularly attractive: merchants and scholars support the title cartouche, whilst putti and winged mer-children frolic around the scale panel. Jan van Loon was a mathematician, astronomer and chart maker, who worked on the Pilot Books for Jansson and published two sea atlases on his own. Van der Krogt 8410:1C.

        Smegma orientale: sordibus barbarismi, contemtui praesertim linguarum orientalium oppositum.

      Heidelberg, Adrian Wyngaerde, 1658. - 4to. (12), 549, (1) pp. With woodcut device to t. p. Slightly later half calf with giltstamped spine title. A principal and rare work by the theologian Hottinger (1620-67), a founder of oriental linguistics (cf. Fück 91f.), written during his stay in Heidelberg, where he had been summoned by the Elector Palatine. "In almost all his publications Hottinger repeatedly defends the historical and theological utility of the Arabic language [.] This he does most pointedly and systematically in the publication to which he gave the programmatic title 'Smegma Orientale', the word 'smegma' referring to Jeremiah 2:22 and meaning 'soadsuds' as opposed to the 'smut of barbarism'. The 'barbarism' in question refers to this supposed Roman Catholic ignorance of, and contempt for, the study of oriental languages. [.T]he 'Smegma Orientale' is a systematic account of the utility of oriental studies in general and of Arabic studies in particular, and as such is an exceptional Christian appraisal of Arabic culture and learning" (J. Loop, Hottinger: Arabic and Islamic Studies in the 17th Century [Oxford 2013], p. 80f.). In this work, Hottinger "quotes from his copy of the original Arabic version of Maimondies's 'Guide of the Perplexed', occasionally from the Syriac lexicon by Isho' bar 'Ali, from the Jacobite 'Responses' of Abu 'Ali 'Isa ibn Ishaq ibn Zur'a (943-1008) [.], and in particular from the Book of Joshua and the Arabic chronicle of the Samaritans which he had found in Scaliger's legacy. The long quotations from this curious source in the 'Smegma Orientale' are printed in the Arabic types obtained by the Dutch printer Adrian Weyngard much to Bodmer's distress in Zurich [.] One of the most famous pieces of evidence confirming the theological significance of oriental philology [.] is the [.] Arabic source extensively quoted [.] - the 'Annals' of Eutychius (Sa'id ibn Batriq), a universal history from the creation to the tenth century AD" (ibid., p. 92f., 95). One of three impressions in the same year. - Slightly browned, but well-preserved altogether. Half-title trimmed and re-mounted on a blank leaf. Withdrawn from Leipzig University Library with cancellation mark on t. p. VD 17, 23:232560W. Fürst I, 414. Graesse III, 377. Ebert 10307.

        [FOUR CONTINENTS] Europa delineata et recens edita; Asiæ nova delineata; Africæ accurata tabula; Nova et accuratissima totius Americæ descriptio

      [Amsterdam: Visscher, 1658. Four hand-coloured copper engraved maps. A set of the four continental maps from the Golden Age of Dutch cartography The Dutch were especially well equipped for the role they played in the European discovery and colonization of the wider world. Unencumbered by any desire to impose their religious or political beliefs, they simply wanted to trade commodities and profit thereby. The ascendancy of the Dutch in global trade lasted only as long as they could withstand the English and French, who, with much larger populations, ultimately overwhelmed them, but for a considerable portion of the 17th century, the Dutch were supreme. The outlines of the world the Dutch merchantmen discovered was conveyed to the rest of Europe (as Spain and Portugal did not) in beautifully engraved and coloured maps that resonated with authority. In these four maps by Visscher, with only a few exceptions (Hokkaido, Australia, New Zealand and the mythical Anian), the continents are delineated and defined in a remarkably accurate way. This was the accumulation of the day to day observations of sea captain / tradesmen, who at this time gave the world the first comprehensive sea charts. The Dutch were tradesmen and seafarers, not conquerors or settlers, so the fundamental advancement in geographical knowledge was in coastlines and rivers, as if in preparation for the great movements of peoples to come. The interiors derive from other, less reliable sources, some of them ancient as the Ptolemaic interior of Africa. The four maps form a balanced composition and an aesthetically appealing portrait of the newly discovered World. Visscher's cartouches are light, optimistic and exuberant, happily implying a bright future. Each of the four maps bears a dedicatory cartouche to a prominent Dutch statesman and illustrates his coat of arms, usually surrounded by gods, goddesses and angels. Betz, 87; Norwich 55; Burden, 332.

        Briefve Histoire de l'institution des Ordres Religieux. Avec les figures de leurs Habits, gravées sur le cuivre par Odoart Fialetti, Bolognois.

      chez Adrien Menier, A Paris 1658 - Habiti delle Religioni con le armi e breve descrittioni loro. Opera di Odoardo Fialetti Bolognese. In Parigi. 1680. 2 parties en 1 vol. in-4 (16 x 22 cm) de (8) pp. (titre-frontispice, titre, dédicace et table) 45-(1) pp., 1 titre gravé, 1 frontispice et 72 planches numérotées, veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Suite gravée de costumes religieux avec les armes de leur confrérie et leur description en italien au verso de chaque feuillet, par l'artiste bolonais Odoardo Fialetti : 1 figure allégorique et 72 portraits en pied numérotés. Deuxième tirage parisien de 1680 à l'identique de l'original vénitien de 1626 : la suite fut imprimée une première fois en France en 1658 augmentée d'un historique des ordres religieux établi par Raphaël Trichet du Fresne - bibliothécaire érudit et bibliophile de Christine de Suède, il était le fils de l'avocat du Parlement de Bordeaux Pierre Trichet connu pour son cabinet de curiosités. Chaque partie est précédée d'un titre gravé : il apparaît ainsi que notre exemplaire est composé de la première partie historique à la date 1658 et de la suite gravée de 1680. L'épître dédicatoire est adressée à Pierre de La Porte, premier valet de chambre de Louis XIV. « Odoardo Fialetti de son vrai nom Edouard Viallet né à Bologne le 18 juillet 1573, mort à Venise en 1638, est non seulement d'origine française mais savoyarde, ce qu'il faut noter car c'est peut-être le seul artiste de valeur qu'ait jamais donné cette province. Son père, né à Beaufort sur Dozon descendant d'une famille de robe, fut professeur à l'Université de Padoue, puis à l'Université de Bologne, où il mourut comme doyen-recteur. Edouard Viallet, dit Odoardo Fialetti, fut d'abord élève de Cremonini à Bologne se rendit à Rome et à Venise où il entra dans l'atelier du Tintoret. Il convient de rappeler que selon les termes même du grand vénitien, Fialetti fut son « élève chéri » et qu'il le nomma son exécuteur testamentaire. Boschini mentionne trente-huit tableaux de cet artiste, dispersés dans les différentes églises de Venise. Bartsch décrit 243 planches gravées d'après ses propres dessins et d'après d'autres maaîtres, en réalité il faut en compter plus de trois cents dont entre autres une série de costumes des différentes nations et des différents ordres religieux et des motifs décoratifs qui furent recherchés en France par les faïenceries de Nevers qui s'en inspirèrent largement (?) » (Benezit). Bon exemplaire, restaurations aux coiffes. Ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre du temps « Guilliere ». Brunet II, 1241 ; Colas 1061-1062 ; Cicognara 1649 ; Benezit, III, 739. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
