        Coacæ prænotiones, Graecè & Latinè

      Amsterdam: Elzevir, 1660. 12mo. 6, 577, [107] pp. Title printed in red and black. Text in Latin and Greek. Contemporary vellum. Provenance: L. J. W. Smit (bookplate). The notes were prepared by John Jonston, Polish scholar and physician. Louis Duret's 1588 translation remained the standard until this by French humanist Anuce Foës. While a student of the physcian Jacques Goupil, Foës was given access to a manuscript of Hippocrates at the Vatican, as well as three other manuscripts from the library at Fontainebleau. His copies of these sources provided the foundation of his research, which was dedicated to the rehabilitation of Hippocratic medicine and study of the ancients. Willems 1259. / From the Collection of Allan B. Kirsner, M.D.

Med det ?Odensehische Vertrag? från 1579 och tryckfelslistan, vilka saknas i somliga exemplar. Gunde Rosenkrantz (1604-75), son till Holger Rosenkrantz, var danskt riksråd. Från 1657 propagerade han ivrigt för att påbörja ett nytt krig mot Sverige och skrev ett antal mycket hårda skrifter mot det nordliga grannlandet och dess krigsförbrytelser mot Danmark, bl. a. denna som författades på danska regeringens uppdrag. 1664 hade han dock kreditorer efter sig och såg ingen annan utväg än att fly till Sverige, och 1670 ansökte den tidigare så ivrige danske patrioten om att bli svensk undersåte, men förgäves. I misär dog han i Helsingborg, inte välkommen vare sig i Danmark eller i Sverige. Vid sidan av politik bedrev han ivrigt teologiska och klassiska studier, och publicerade även en del uppbyggelselitteratur, som delvis även översattes till svenska.

The ninth, first posthumous, edition of De motu cordis, which Keynes places before the London edition with the same dates, the latter being the first edition published in England. 'Harvey's treatise is, in fact, more important as a demonstration of scientific method in biological research than as an annunciation of the fact of the circulation of the blood. From this beginning has flowed all subsequent biological knowledge in an ever widening stream. Harvey's De motu cordis is therefore justly considered to be one of the most fruitfull and important books ever published' (Keynes). 'Wilhelm Langley's (1616-1668) excerpts and comments on Harvey's De generatione animalium along with his own observations and experiments. The first six plates, depicting various stages in the development of the chick embryo, are the first illustrations of Harvey's text to be published' (Heirs of Hippocrates). Keynes flatly denies the last assertion, but others support it. Keynes however has this to say in his biography of Harvey: '[De generatione] was soon appraised at its true value by a few later workers in the field of embryology, notably Willaim Langley, physician of Dordrecht' (Keynes p. 360).

        FIDES-ANGELICANA. OR A PLEA FOR THE PUBLICK-FAITH OF THESE NATIONS . .

      London: s.n., 1660. FIRST EDITION. Written at the beginning of the Restoration period in England, this anti-imperialist pamphlet pleads for the fair compensation and equitable treatment of its citizens for the sake of the nation's honor. The author, no doubt, counted himself among those who were unjustly treated by Parliament; indeed, his financial problems seem to have been closely tied to the volatile political climate and his relative favor or unfavor. Although Wither (1588-1667) made his name as a poet and satirist, he became increasingly radicalized in his mature adulthood, associating with the progressive Levellers during the English Civil War. After Charles II's rise to power, Wither produced this and several other anti-imperialist pamphlets, for which he was sent to Newgate and then to the Tower under the charge of seditious libel. Despite his imprisonment, Wither continued to write and publish a number of works including "Paralellogrammaton" and "The Prisoners Plea" (both 1662). DNB speculates that the present work was probably published in 1661 (despite the 1660 imprint on the title) due to a reference to Venner's rising, which occured in January of that year. This work also contains a list of the author's publications on pp. 90-94, including a few works that are now lost.. 160 x 105 mm. (6 3/8 x 4 1/4)" [2], 94 pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sheep.

        De Insectis [Metamorphosis Naturalis]

      Overview Details & Condition The uncommon second Latin edition of this "extremely important and influential study" (Jorink, Reading the Book of Nature in the Dutch Golden Age, p. 201), the translation by Fellow of the Royal Society Martin Lister, with his notes and addendum on English species. Originally published in three volumes under the title Metamorphosis Naturalis between 1660 and 1669. The Dutch painter Johannes Goedart (also spelled Goedaert; 1617-1668) was the first European to "embark on a systematic study of the generation of insects" (Jorink, "Between Emblematics and the 'Argument from Design', Early Modern Zoology, p. 156). Beginning in the 1630s, he painstakingly traversed the countryside around his home in Middelburg, collecting caterpillars and other insect larvae, raising them in glass jars, and carefully observing their "strange transformations". Although Goedart did not make any major scientific advances in entomology or taxonomy - he interpreted his observations within the framework of his religion and was a strong supporter of spontaneous generation - his work is significant for the emphasis it placed on metamorphosis at a time when other natural historians focused on insect life stages in isolation from each other. Additionally, Goedart was innovative in his choice of subjects, including, among the 150-plus species he described, previously neglected groups such as flies, bumblebees, wood lice, and moths out of the conviction that none of God's creatures were to be "despised, but that they are all disposed well and with ineffable wisdom". Also appealing are his detailed and well-executed plates, which depict all the stages of each insect's life-cycle together. Though Goedart's work was criticised by scientists such as Swammerdam, it proved extremely popular among collectors and artists. "Metamorphosis was accessible, entertaining, and attractively illustrated... the work was very widely distributed and was often translated and cited. It was common in Dutch collections of books, but was also popular outside the Netherlands... Goedaert provided a particularly strong impulse for the study of other insects than the usual bees, ants, and butterflies. His accessible books conveyed the same message as the works of Hoefnagel and Aldrovandi, but the contents and distribution of the latter raised their threshold much higher... It is probably to a large extent due to Goedaert that the study and collecting of these creatures began to enjoy a rapidly growing popularity after 1660. Insects, which had been viewed ambivalently since time immemorial, were slowly but surely becoming acceptable in polite society" (Jorink, Reading the Book of Nature, pp. 208-209). This volume is a particularly nice, unsophisticated copy in contemporary vellum with an attractive hand-written title on the spine. in Methodum Redactus; cum Notularum Additione. Opera M. Lister, e Regia Societate Londinensi. Item Appendicis ad Historam Animalium Angliae, Ejusdem M. Lister, Altera Editio Scarabaeorum Anglicanorum quibusdam Tabulis mutis. London: S. Smith, 1685. Octavo (180 x 115 mm). Contemporary limp vellum folded over at the fore-edge, handwritten title to spine, edges of text block red speckled. 21 folding engraved plates depicting numerous insects on each plate. Marks, spots, and dulling of the vellum, spine may have been cleaned in the past, hinges a little cracked but holding firm, light spotting and toning at the edges of the leaves, closed tear to the final plate in the addendum which depicts mussels A very good, unsophisticated copy.

Il letterato ferrarese Daniello Bartoli (1608-1685) entrò a 15 anni nella Compagnia di Gesù, di cui nel 1650 fu nominato storiografo. Le sue opere sono numerosissime ma la più importante è la "Istoria della Compagnia.." (1653-73), divisa in sezioni (Asia, Giappone, Cina, Europa: Inghilterra, Italia), una delle più articolate e complete storiografie del Seicento, sui continenti e nazioni dove i Gesuiti avevano operato. Basandosi sulle dirette informazioni di questi intorno alle condizioni dei vari paesi (riti, usanze, costumi, leggende, cronache, fatti politici e notizie geografiche), trascende i limiti di una storia particolare delle vicende della Compagnia, per diventare una specie di storia universale. Purtroppo questa titanica impresa rimarrà incompiuta.

Library stamp on verso of title) (Note: This Latin grammar was commissioned in 1625 by the Provincal Governments of Holland and West-Frisia (Staten van Holland) for the use in local Latin schools in the Western part of the Dutch Republic. It was produced by the Dutch classical scholar Gerardus Johannes Vossius, 1577-1649, according to Sandys the greatest polyhistor of his age. In 1622 he was appointed professor of Eloquence at Leyden, and in 1631 he accepted the professorship of History at Amsterdam. His Latin grammar remained the standard grammar on Dutch schools untill the middle of the 19th century. In 1625 the 'Staten van Holland' decreed, that the same set of rules should apply to all public schools in their provinces. The schools should have the same order of classes and lessons, the same schedule, authors and exercises. It was decided that uniform schoolbooks, grammars and sound texts were needed. (E.J. Kuiper, 'De Hollandse 'Schoolordre' van 1625', Groningen, 1958, p. 80) The 'Staten of Holland' wanted to improve education at the Latin-schools, which prepared for the University, for the standard of education and discipline had got worse because of the Eighty Years' War. The grammar was first published in 1626, and found the next 2 centuries numerous new and revised editions. The first volume contains the latina etymologia, the second the latina syntaxis, the third the latina prosodia) (Provenance: Library stamp on verso of title: 'Grosherzogliche Bibliothek Neustrelitz'. 'Die 1796 gegründete Herzogliche, später Grosshezogliche Bibliothek Neustrelitz umfasste zunächt die private herzogliche Büchersammlung und enthielt 1829 etwa 50.000 Bände. Dieser Bestand wurde in den nächsten 50 Jahren kaum vergrössert. (...) Für 1875 werden sehr unsicheren Schätzungen - die Bibliothek war unterbesetzt - 60.000 bis 70.000 Bände angegeben, erst ab 1894 erhöht sich diese Zahl auf 100.000. Obwhol der Philologe Friedrich Latendorf (1831-1898) den Wert der Bibliothek für das geistige Leben des Landes immer wieder betonte (...) musste er feststellen, dass wichtige Werke fehlten, Disziplinen wie Medizin und Juristerei fast völlig vernachlässigt waren und der Bibliothek seit ihrer Gründung der Charakter des Zufälligen anhaftete' The schoolboy Heinrich Schliemann saw in the underpaid librarian Carl Andress, 'der offenbar kein abgeschlossenes Studium (Literatur, alte und neue Sprachen) besass', 'einer der gelehrtesten Männer Deutschlands'. (U. Hass-Zumkehr, 'Daniel Sanders: Aufgeklärte Germanistik im 19. Jahrhundert', Berlin/New York 1995, p. 307/08) The library had in 1920 132.000 volumes. In 1950 the library was 'aufgelöst und ihre Bestände auf acht Bibliotheken und Museen in Schwerin, Greifswald, Rostock und Berlin aufgeteilt worden. Mit dieser Aktion ging der betroffenen Region eine unersetzbare Quelle der kultur- und regionalgeschichtlichen Forschung verloren'. (B.

      Cordier, Indosinica, col. 827; ICCU 024 167; cf. Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 239-240, 385. First and only Italian translation of a work on the French mission to Siam, Cochinchina, Cambodia and Tonkin, originally written in French. It contains the story of three French Jesuits who left Paris around 1660 to go as missionaries to the Far East. One of them died on the journey, but the other two, Louis Chevreuil and Antoine Hainques, made it to Southeast Asia. Chevreuil arrived in 1664 in Siam, and within five months he traveled to Cochinchina, where he had to leave due to persecution of Christians, discussed in the second part of the book. Hainques arrived in Cochinchina in 1665. Chevreuil was sent to Cambodia, which is covered in the third part of the book. The book is based on their letters and reports. Each part mentions the journey the missionaries took and the places they visited, giving descriptions of Mosambique, the islands Madagascar, Réunion and Cape Verde and more.Some minor foxing throughout, the first two leaves and the last leaf slightly soiled, and a small restored tear in the second leaf, otherwise still in good condition.

Active in the Protectorate, where he was Cromwell's legal advisor, Sheppard aimed to reform the common law. Ahead of his time in many ways, some of his proposals anticipate changes that were adopted in the nineteenth century. His work was well-received and deeply influential. Some of his books, most notably The Touchstone of Common Assurances (1648), were standard authorities into the nineteenth century. A second edition of his JP manual was published in 1672. This is a very scarce work. Counting both imprints, OCLC locates 9 copies of the first edition, 7 in North America, 4 in law libraries (Northwestern, Southern Methodist University, University of Pennsylvania, Yale).

        Homer his Iliads Translated, Adorn'd with Sculpture, and Illustrated with Annotations

      printed by Thomas Roycroft, to be had at the Author's House, London 1660 - Letterpress title in red and black. Engraved frontispiece, engraved portraits of Ogilby and Charles II, engraved statue of Homer and 48 plates engraved by W. Hollar and others after Cleyn and others. Contemporary red morocco, expertly rebacked to style retaining the five central compartments of the original spine, marbled endpapers Provenance: S.P. (initials in gilt on the spine) First edition of Ogilby's lavishly illustrated edition of Homer's Iliad, among the most beautiful editions ever printed. John Ogilby began his professional life a far cry from the world of publishing, as an apprentice to a dancing master. Having no formal education, he began learning Latin in his forties with the help of members of the University of Cambridge whom he had befriended. In 1649, having had some success at a young age with creating his own verse, he attempted a translation of Virgil. Meeting with a positive response, he turned his study to Greek so that he could translate Aesop and Homer. Beyond simple translations, his editions of such classics include significant marginal annotations, synthesizing previous scholarship. However, the common thread among his works, and the principal reason for his success in his lifetime and beyond, are the numerous illustrations which adored his works. The illustrated folio editions of such classics were a new and welcome addition to the mid-17th century English book market and led to the larger more expansive geographical works for which he is best remembered. For the lavish illustrations in his works, Ogilby commissioned prints from some of the best designers and engravers working in England, including Francis Cleyn ( d. 1658), Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677), William Faithorne ( c. 1620-1691), and Pierre Lombart (1612/13-1682). To subsidize his publications, particularly costly because of the quality of both paper and illustrations, Ogilby was one of the first publishers to be fully successful at using a combination of subscription and lotteries. Ogilby's version of the Iliad first appeared in 1660; five years later, he published his translation of the Odyssey. A second edition of the Iliad followed in 1669 (although with fewer plates than the original). "The versions of [Homer by] John Ogilby fired the enthusiasms of a youthful Alexander Pope, and despite his later reservations, furnished many rhymes and potential couplet-shapings for his own versions. Both were lavishly illustrated folios 'replete with magnificent plates which depicted the Greek and Trojan heroes in dignified costumes, settings and attitudes in the grand manner of Renaissance painting', and which offered a more coherent impression of Homer than the text" (Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature, p. 170). The provenance of this volume is intriguing. At the Ham House sale (Sotheby's, 24-5 November 1947), a third folio Shakespeare similarly bound in morocco with the same initials on the spine, was suggested at the time to have been from Samuel Peyps's library. However Nixon, in his 1984 work on Pepys's bindings, refutes the attribution: "The suggestion made 'tentatively' in the Ham House sale catalogue . that the fine turkey copy of the Third Folio with the initials 'SP' on the spine might have been Pepys's is wildly improbable. He certainly did not use turkey leather for any of his bindings during the 1660s nor did he add his initials to the spine of any of his books." The owner of this fine copy of The Iliad remains an unidentified collector of the Restoration period. Wing H-2548; Schuchard 7. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Icones Principum Virorum Doctorum, Pictorum Chalcographorum Statuariorum nec non Amatorum Pictoriae Artis numero centum

      Antwerp: Gillis Hendricx, ca 1660. Folio (379 x 281 mm; 143 4 x 11 1 4 inches). Engraved title incorporating an etched self-portrait and 109 etched or engraved plates, including 11 etched by Van Dyck himself (nos. 98-108); the remaining etched or engraved by Jacob Neefs (3), Lucas Vorsterman (26), Paulus Pontius (30), Pieter de Jode (14), Schelte Adams Bolswert (11), Adriaen Lommelin (2), Nicolaes Lauwers (1), Robert Van Voerst (7), Cornelius Galle (1), Andreas Stock (1), Willem Hondius (2), Willem Jaconszoon Del (1), and Pieter Clouwet (1). The majority with foolscap watermark; countermark "AH". Interleaved with wove paper throughout. (Some occasional pale spotting, pl. 44 with 1-in. repaired marginal tear, overall generally clean and fresh.) 19th-century red morocco, gilt-lettered on spine, edges gilt, by Chambolle-Duru (joints rubbed, with top of front joint partly split, board edges somewhat toned, a few scuffs and scratches). Provenance: Pierre Mariette (1634-1716), from the Parisian family of engravers, booksellers, and print sellers (signature on verso of 103 of the plates, each dated between 1660 and 1693; two-pages notes on one leaf at front, summarizing the life and work of Van Dyck; manuscript index of subjects and plate numbers [inserted in manuscript on each plate, upper right] inlaid in larger sheet after the leaf of notes); with Morgand (stock number on front free endpaper); Robert Schumann; with Bernard Quaritch; John Galvin (initialed gift inscription, 1982); the present owner. A fine, tall copy of this important work in the history of portraiture with a superb provenance. Final states of the plates, after the addition of the title-page in 1645 by Hendricx, and after the erasure of the address of Marinus van den Enden, and the erasure of the initials of the publisher ("G.H."). Of the fteen plates now ascribed to Van Dyck himself, eleven are present in this copy, with the other four having been re-engraved, as is the case with the Hendricx issue. "Sir Anthony Van Dyck stands out as the solitary great etcher of the school. Portrait etching had scarcely had an existence before his time, and in his work it suddenly appears at the highest point ever reached in the art" (Hind, p.v165). "The plan of this publication took shape after Van Dyck returned from Italy (1626) and before he went to England (1632). He made careful preparatory drawings in chalk and brush for the publication. He directed and revised the work of the engravers, the best of the Rubens circle; he collaborated with his etching needle in some of the plates and himself etched the most beautiful set, mainly portraits of artists. One of the most brilliant in human characterization is the portrait of Peter Brueghel the Younger, son of the great Peasant Brueghel. It is remarkable that the etching appeared in this sketchy form in the book, proving that the master regarded it as nished. All interest is focussed on the wonderful hand. The first edition was published in Antwerp in 1635-1636. Yet it was not complete, and the title-page did not appear before the Gillis Hendricx edition of 1645, engraved by Jacob Neels" (Benesch, Artistic and Intellectual Trends, p. 32.) Hofer, Baroque Book Illustrations 132. With an important provenance, collected by Pierre Mariette, second- generation in the family rm of one of the leading engravers, book publishers, and print sellers in 17th-Century Paris. When he bought the business from his father in 1657, it was valued at an astonishing 30,000 livres. His own prodigious stock and collection would pass through the hands of his son Jean, and grandson Jean-Pierre (who catalogued the Crozat collection, considered the rst modern descriptive catalogue). This lineage of experts had access to, and obtained, the nest Old Master prints and drawings in Europe, and their dispersal after Jean-Pierre 's death included the "Spencer Albums" of prints. They are to this day one of the most important acquisitions made by Harvard University. It is unknown when the present suite of Van Dyck's important portrait series left the Mariette family, and it is possible that it remained unbound into the Nineteenth Century, and that this is therefore its fi rst binding. Joseph Maberly described "Pierre Mariette... [as] an eminent collector and dealer about the middle of the seventeenth century. He was accustomed, whenever he happened to become possessed of an impression of more than ordinary beauty, to write his name in full, and a date, on the face of the print [as well as on the back], and although this is certainly a dis gurement, yet such is Pierre Mariette 's reputation for judgment, that to be thus dis gured, is no disparagement to a print, but the contrary" (Maberly, The Print Collector, An Introduction to the Knowledge Necessary for Forming a Collection of Ancient Prints, Edited by Robert Hoe, New York, 1880, p.81).

        Haemisphaeria Sphaerarum Rectae Et Obliquae Utriusque Motus et Longitudines Tam Coelestes Quam Terrestres Ac Stellarum Affectiones Monstrantia

      Amsterdam 1660 - "Magnifica carta astronomica tratta da " Atlas Coelestis Seu Harmonia Macrocosmica " del Cellarius, il più importante atlante celeste mai pubblicato. Edizione pubblicata da Gerard Valk e Pieter Schenk nel 1708. Incisione in rame, magnifica coloritura coeva, piccolo strappo restaurato al margine inferiore, complessivamente in ottimo stato di conservazione." Finely executed celestial chart illustrating the motions of both the upright sphere (the equatorial co-ordinate system) and the oblique sphere (the ecliptic co-ordinate system); the celestial and terrestrial longitudes; and the influences of the stars, from the 1708 Valk & Schenk edition of Andreas Cellarius's Harmonia Macrocosmica Andreas Cellarius was born in 1596 in Neuhausen and educated in Heidelberg. He emigrated to Holland in the early 17th Century and in 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he became the rector of the Latin School. Cellarius' best known work is his Harmonia Macrocosmica, first issued in 1660 by Jan Jansson, as a supplement to Jansson's Atlas Novus. The work consists of a series of Celestial Charts begun by Cellarius in 1647 and intended as part of a two volume treatise on cosmography, which was never issued. Cellarius' charts are the most sought after of celestial charts, blending the striking imagery of the golden age of Dutch Cartography with contemporary scientific knowledge. The present examples come from the Valk & Schenk edition of Cellarius' atlas, which is unchanged from the 1661 edition. The 1660 and 1661 editions can be distinguished by the inclusion of a plate number in the lower right corner of the 1661 edition. The Valk & Schenk edition can be distinguished by the addition of the printer's name (Valk & Schenk) in the titles of the maps. Dimensioni 506 430mm

        FIDES-ANGELICANA. OR A PLEA FOR THE PUBLICK-FAITH OF THESE NATIONS . .

      London: N.p., 1660. FIRST EDITION. Written at the beginning of the Restoration period in England, this anti-imperialist pamphlet pleads for the fair compensation and equitable treatment of its citizens for the sake of the nation's honor. The author, no doubt, counted himself among those who were unjustly treated by Parliament; indeed, his financial problems seem to have been closely tied to the volatile political climate and his relative favor or unfavor. Although Wither (1588-1667) made his name as a poet and satirist, he became increasingly radicalized in his mature adulthood, associating with the progressive Levellers during the English Civil War. After Charles II's rise to power, Wither produced this and several other anti-imperialist pamphlets, for which he was sent to Newgate and then to the Tower under the charge of seditious libel. Despite his imprisonment, Wither continued to write and publish a number of works including "Paralellogrammaton" and "The Prisoners Plea" (both 1662). DNB speculates that the present work was probably published in 1661 (despite the 1660 imprint on the title) due to a reference to Venner's rising, which occured in January of that year. This work also contains a list of the author's publications on pp. 90-94, including a few works that are now lost.. 160 x 105 mm. (6 3/8 x 4 1/4)" [2], 94 pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sheep. Front pastedown with bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. Wing W-3157. See also: Hensley "The later career of George Wither." Covers with some small scratches and abrasions, one small rust hole affecting a few leaves, otherwise AN EXCELLENT, UNSOPHISTICATED COPY, the contents virtually without fault and the binding in remarkably good condition.
