Guilielmi Harveji (William Harvey); De Back, Jacobi (Jacob De Back)
Roterodami [Rotterdam]: Arnold Leers, 1660. Considered the most important medical work ever published, our copy is the 1660 Rotterdam edition, which includes a dissertation by Dutch physician Jacob De Back which supports Harvey's findings; De Motu Cordis was written in Latin, and published first in 1628 by William Fitzer of Frankfurt, Germany; In this small book, the English physician & researcher Doctor William Harvey announced his discovery of the circulation of blood by the heart. Harvey is the first to recognize and describe the heart's expulsion of blood during systole, its passive refilling during diastole, and the filling of the arteries during systole. His conclusions were based on years of meticulous research and observation and he illustrates his conclusions with clear evidence, thereby establishing the reality of pulmonary circulation. "Harvey's clear reasoning from the observations and precise measurements made during his purposeful experiments supplied the key for advancing knowledge of physiology and was also a model for future scientific procedure." (LeFanu, Notable Medical Books, page 63). This copy is bound in early full vellum, lightly shelf worn and aged as expected; yapped fore-edge, and a very clean and tight textblock in excellent condition; signatue in ink on ffep, dated 1898; Berlin, Germany bookseller's ticket on fep; 285p., plus index and 252p., plus index, respectively.

LAURENBERG, JOHANNES. - [ATLAS OF ANCIENT GREECE - EDITED BY PUFENDORF]
Amsterdam, Apud Joannem Janssonium. 1660. Oblong-4to. Contemporary full calf, spine with traces of wear. (8), 62, (2) pp. With 31 fullpage engraved maps and 7 textual engravings. Title-page neatly restored and first 4 pages with repairs in lower right corner not affecting text. With the bookplate of H. Coyet-Torup in Sweden.. Rare and charming atlas of Ancient Greece with maps by Lauremberg, edited by Pufendorf. Lauremberg is most famous for his maps of ancient Greece. He never himself visited Greece, but was familiar with the work of the great mapmakers of the age and was influenced by Mercator and Ortelius.Most expositions of Pufendorf overlook the fact that the famous Heidelberg-professor not only worked within the fields of law and history of law, but that he was also very much engaged in philology and classics. In fact, Pufendorf taught classes and gave lectures on philology at in Heidelberg, and he also been involved in publications in this field, namely as the editor of works by Lauremberg and Meursius. As such, Pufendorf came to be connected to an important and long philosophical tradition at the Heidelberg University. The present charming and well executed atlas thus stands at the centre of this subject field of Pufendorf.Johannes Laurenberg (1590-1658) was a mathematician born in Rostock in Germany. He was a professor of poetry in Rostock and after that professor of mathematics in Sorø, Denmark, where he worked till he died. In 1631 the Danish King Christian IV commissioned Laurenberg to do the mapping of Denmark. For the next 16 years he worked on this project an … [Click Below for Full Description]

WINSTANLEY, William
1660. Very Good. WINSTANLEY, William. ENGLAND'S WORTHIES. SELECT LIVES OF THE MOST EMINENT PERSONS FROM CONSTANTINE THE GREAT, TO THE DEATH OF OLIVER CROMWELL LATE PROTECTOR. London, Printed for Nath. Brooke, at the Sign of the Angel in Cornhill, 1660. First edition. Engraved title-page frontispiece with each of the forty-seven worthies shown in a medallion portrait. Printer's device on title-page. Collation: A8,a8,B-2R8,2S4. 16.5 cm. [32],613, pp. + [19] publisher's advertisement. In an early full leather binding, which is rather parched and edgeworn. The first two signatures have a shallow inkstain at the top margin which decreases over 32 pp. It occasionally covers a few words in the top line of type; however, because the ink is transparent, it doesn't completely obscure the type. There are some leaves near the end which show some very faint dampstainging; but the text is clean for the most part. A few pages are misnumbered. Very good overall. (Wing W3058). Winstanley (1628?-1698), better known by his pseudonym of 'Poor Robin' as a writer of almanacs and chapbooks (D.N.B.), was a compiler with a dubious reputation who 'borrowed without stint, and without acknowledgment also, from his predecessors' (Wood, Athena Oxon. ed. Bliss, iv. 763). Despite his poor reputation, 'we are obliged to him for many notices of persons and things which are recorded only in his works' (Granger, Biogr. Hist. of Engl. 5th ed. v. 271). England's Worthies is noteworthy because, though Winstanley was a staunch royalist after the Restoration, it is free … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary black morocco "sombre" binding, elaborately tooled in blind on upper and lower covers with a central lozenge cartouche made from double impressions of two separate tools, the same tools being used to decorate the four corners, the design surrounded by floral sprays, spine of six raised banks with floral tooling in each of the seven compartments, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Front joint repaired, skillful minor restoration to the corners by Sotheran, overall a very attractive binding. Lacks first three leaves of Book of Common Prayer. Herbert 669 or 670 (with OT); Griffiths 1662-1663.3 . A handsome volume, made even more interesting by the contemporary ownership inscription "Elizabeth Maynard 1663" on the verso of the New Testament title page, and, in her handwriting on the blank recto of the Psalms, "What Children I have christened [there follows a list of nine names] Innocents day 1665" plus additional notations of subsequent christenings in 1665 and 1667. As the "Children" included a Mrs Cooper, it may be that the word is used in an ecclesiastical sense; and it is interesting to conjecture what role Elizabeth Maynard played in the ceremony in these years following the Restoration of 1660

Weyer, Johann
Amsterdam: Petrum can den Berge (Petrus Montanus), 1660. First edition. With the famous engraved portrait of Weyer done by Holstein. With nine woodcut illustrations including the engraved portrait of a ten-year-old girl and depictions of medicinal plants. Thick quarto bound in recent full vellum. This is the first edition of the first collected works by Weyer, and is viewed as one of the great psychiatric classics. Weyer “pleaded for medical treatment of the mentally ill and suggested that the confessions of the so-called witches were nothing more than reports of visual and auditory hallucinations experienced under the influence of some drugs. With skill and sympathy, Weyer described the symptoms of schizophrenia, the phenomena of mass hysteria, the paranoia of homosexuals, and the significance of agitation recurring yearly on the same date” (Howells 1982, p.976). Includes Weyer’s “De Lamiis,” a book that Freud believed helped to found modern psychiatry. Freud praised Weyer’s “Praestigiis Daemonum” as one of the ten most significant books of all time.

ROBERT, N.
1660. Paris, F. Poilly excudit, rüe St. Jacques alimage St. Benoist, (1660?). Small folio (325 x 240mm). Engraved title and 30 engraved plates of plants. 19th century boards, some slight paper discoloration, small ink spot on one plate. First edition, most probably a later and better impression, of the same plates, printed on heavier paper. Hunt mentions such an issue without giving a date. Nicolas Robert (1614-1685) was one of the outstanding flower painters of the 17th century. "In comparison to Fiori diversi, produced by the same artist twenty years earlier in Rome, 'Variae ac multiformes florum species', or 'Diverses fleurs', clearly shows Robert's mastery of the problems of technique and composition. The earlier plates are characterized by a certain harshness of line, the flowers standing out starkly against the page. In this later work Robert made much more creative use of the various elements at his disposal, incorporating the stem and leaves of the plants in sophisticated compositions that anticipate the quintessentially Baroque motif of the formal flower bouquet. Butterflies and other insects are also much more numerous than in the artist's previous work" (An Oak Spring Flora, 42). "Maria Sibylla Merian copied a number of different motifs from Robert's work in the first part of her 'Blumenbuch'" (Maria Sibylla Merian 1647-1717, Artist and naturalist, ed. by K. Wettengl cat. no. 31). An Oak Spring Flora 42; Hunt 282; Nissen BBI, 1645.

Lacking half-title ("New experiments physico-mechanicall touching the air"). Disbound; some cropping affecting some catchwords and final line on p. 387, folded plate repaired. Title-page toned and a bit soiled, some mild toning or thumbing throughout. Otherwise good. Rare first edition of this landmark of scientific history, which established Boyle's fame and ushered in the era of the experimental method in science. The first important scientific book in English, Boyle's debut also signaled the beginning of the English scientific revolution. The work describes experiments carried out with an air pump designed and constructed for Boyle by Robert Hooke, and provided crucial experimental evidence leading in 1662 to the formulation of Boyle's law, which states that the volume occupied by a gas is the reciprocal of its pressure."Three years earlier [Boyle] had learned of Guericke's invention of an air pump and, immediately perceiving the scientific potentialities of the instrument, set his laboratory assistants to work designing one that had a glass receiver and was so constructed that objects could be easily inserted. Robert Hooke's successful design permitted Boyle to devise and carry out a brilliant series of experiments upon the physical nature of air: he proved that the phenomena of Torricelli's experiment were indeed caused by the air, that sound was impos … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is one engraving from a larger work. Adriaen Pietersz van de Venne (1589-1662) (after); Pierre Philippe (d. 1664) (engraver); [Charles II Setting Sail from Scheveningen] from Verhael.van de reys ende 't vertoeven van den seer doorluchtige ende machtige prins Carel de II, Koning van Groot Britannien. [A Journal of the Voyage of King Charles II of Great Britain]. Engraving, uncolored; 12 x 15 inches, plate mark. Lively engraving depicting the triumphal departure of Charles II of Scotland from the Netherlands on his way back to England to reclaim the British throne after 11 years in exile abroad. A crowd has gathered at the harbor of Scheveningen to see him off. In the sky are winged gods and putti holding crowns and the seal of Great Britain, beneath a ribbon bearing the Latin motto, "Quo fas et fata nos vocant" ("where duty and the fates call"). The engraving is one of six originally published in an account of Charles's journey from Breda to Scheveningen from May 25 to June 2, 1660, with stops along the way to meet with the Dutch monarch and address the Parliament. King Charles I's (1600-1649) mismanagement of religious and economic affairs in England and Scotland forced a showdown with the English Parliament, which culminated in civil war and the king's execution on January 30, 1649. His son, Charles II of Scotland, tried to reclaim the throne in 1651. When his forces were defeated by the English army, he escaped to exile in France, and after an 11-year period in which no monarch ruled England, he was asked by Parliament to return. In 1660 he became king. Adriaen van d … [Click Below for Full Description]
