        De Piscibus libri V, et de Cetis lib. unus. Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius..collegit. Marc. Antonius Bernia in lucem restituit.. Bononiae, apud Nicolaum Thebaldinum, 1638, (ma in fine:) Typis Io. Bapt. Ferronij, sumptibus Marci Ant. Berniae, MDCLXI (Bologna 1661)

      Fe, 1661. in - folio, pp. (6, compr. tit. inc., ma privo di un f. bianco), pp. 732 (dopo p. 480 sono inseriti 2 ff. di cui sotto), (28); legatura coeva p. perg. rigida, dorso a nervi con tit. ms., altro tit. calligr. sul taglio infer. Frontespizio inciso entro splendida bordua allegorica con figure e stemma di Francesco Vitelli, arcivescovo di Tessalonica, cui l'opera è dedicata da da parte di Marco Ant. Bernia. Pur essendo una fedele ristampa della precedente edizione del Tebaldini, in questa del 1661 l'editore ha aggiunto 2 ff. tra le pp. 480 e 481 (particolarità non riscontrata nelle bibliografie): il primo (pp. cccclxxxj - cccclxxxij) col testo del ''Libri tertij de Piscibus Auctariolum de inviso antea Pisce Monstroso'' ed il secondo con la raffigurazione silografica del medesimo pesce serpentiforme pescato nelle vicinanze di Napoli. Edizione di notevole pregio (la prima era stata impressa da Giov. Batt. Bellagamba nel 1612 - 13), curata da Ioannes Cornelius Uterverius, corredata di 400 splendide figure in silografia di pesci e cetacei, anche a piena pagina. Opera di grande interesse pure per gli ampi capitoli sulla natura e sulla pesca della balena. «Ce qui est précieux, ce sont ses figures; elles se composent de toutes celles de Gesner, de Rondelet et de Belon et d'un très grand nombre de dessins nouveaux. Placé plus favorablement que Rondelet et Gesner pour recevoir les productions du midi de l'Europe, (Aldrovandi) en recueillit plusieurs qui avaient échappé à ces deux grands naturalistes. Il en reçut aussi des Indes. L'Amérique d'ailleurs et l'intérieur de l'Afrique lui fournirent différentes éspèces qui n'étaient pas encore arrivées en Europe» (Hoefer I, 745). E' uno tra i più preziosi dei 13 volumi di storia naturale redatta dall'Aldrovandi, che costituisce la più significativa raccolta del sapere naturalistico del Rinascimento, ed il più notevole tentativo di descrizione e classificazione zoologica, botanica e mineralogica che sia mai stato fatto dopo Aristotele e prima dei tempi moderni. Figura straordinariamente eclettica, l'Aldrovandi (Bologna 1522 - 1605) fu appassionato collezionista di materiale naturalistico raro e prezioso: si vantava «di non avere mai descritto cosa alcuna senza averla toccata colle proprie mani e senza averne fatto l'anatomia». Bell'esempl. genuino e marginoso.

FIRST EDITION 1661, small 8vo, approximately 165 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, LACKING FRONTISPIECE, SUPPLIED IN MODERN FACSIMILE, and lacking a blank leaf at beginning and end, and the leaf following the title page, most likely the Dedication, pages: (12), 1-84, (2) imprimatur leaf, signatures: *1-*8 (-*1, *3), A-E8, F4 (-F4), catchword on *7v is a printer's mistake, pagination irregular but text collated and guaranteed complete, bound in modern full calf, blind ruled border and blind decorative panelling to covers, raised bands and blind rules to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. 2 lines written in Latin at top of colophon page, occasional minor mark to text or margins. A good copy with facsimile frontispiece as noted. ESTC R209943 Wing attributes authorship to George Rogers (1618-1697) a medical man who trained in Padua and then went into practice in London, eventually becoming the president of the College of Physicians. However the ODNB does not list this amongst his works. In the Preface to this serio-comic work, published to coincide with the celebrations for the restoration of the monarchy (and in an act of remarkable prescience about what would notoriously prove to be one of the major preoccupations of that new anti-puritan era), seeing ?the general verge of the people to merryment?, the author expresses the hope that ?this piece of drollery? on the subject of cuckoldry might prove ?acceptable? to his readers. The first part runs to page 35, The Appendix on Women and Jealousy is slightly larger occupying page 37 to 84. Wing (2nd ed.) R1802. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        SOME CONSIDERATIONS TOUCHING THE USEFULNESSE OF EXPERIMENTAL NATURALL PHILOSOPHY. [bound with] CERTAIN PHYSIOLOGICAL ESSAYS

      Oxford: Printed by Hen. Hall, 1663; London: Printed for Henry Herringman, 1661. FIRST EDITIONS of both works y. The two works in this volume are greatly important scientific publications individually, and together they demonstrate the author's virtuosity as a natural philospher and experimentalist, as they cover an impressive array of scientific subject matter including medicine, physiology, zoology, philosophy, and chemistry. Although Boyle is chiefly remembered for his contributions to chemistry (see later in this discussion), "Some Considerations" was among his most important in the field of medicine. According to the DNB, the text here "was to prove his most extensive medical work and . . . was widely cited in the debates on medical practice of the time." In it he describes a great many experiments, cures, observations, and case histories, with topics as diverse as limb regeneration in certain animals, using fright to cure ailments, and the preparations of tinctures, cordials, and other remedies. The second work here is of monumental importance to the history of chemistry because it is considered the precursor to Boyle's classic essay, "The Sceptical Chymist," which he published less than six months after the appearance of "Essays." These complementary works both promoted chemistry as a separate discipline from alchemy, but it is in Boyle's "Essays" that he first sets out his "corpuscular hypothesis," describing the basic formation of all matter. This theory would drive his subsequent experimentation and also influenced some of the era's finest thinkers, including Isaac Newton and, perhaps to an even greater degree, John Locke. In discussing corpuscularianism, Boyle also touches on an important physiological discovery when he describes digestion as observed in a dog, "thus giving recognition to the existence of the agents now designated the 'enzymes.'" (Fulton). 195 x 160 mm. (7 3/4 x 6 1/4"). [20], 127, [9], 48, 57-417, [19]; [4], 36, [2], 37-105, [13], 107-249, [1] (blank) pp. (with several mispaginations but complete). Two works in one volume. FIRST EDITIONS of both works. Contemporary speckled calf, raised bands with lettering that was once gilt (but now rubbed away). Verso of title and recto of H2 with small ink stamp of the Selbourne Library (see item #73, above). First work: Fulton 50; Wing B-4029; Second work: Fulton 25; Heirs of Hippocrates 264; Garrison-Morton 665.1; Wing B-3929. Front joint cracked about an inch at head and foot, extremities a little bumped and rubbed, calf torn at the tail edge of front cover showing a bit of the board underneath; pastedowns lifted, revealing binding structure, two-inch light brown stain (from a chemical?) affecting the tail margin and lower edge of the text in the first part of the first work, first few leaves of second work a bit browned, occasional mild marginal stains or rust spots, but still a very good copy with no fatal defects, the text mostly clean and fresh, and the binding solid.

      Roma 1661 - Acquaforte e puntasecca, eseguita fra il 1661-62, firmata in lastra in basso entro cartiglio. Mm 454x272. Discreta prova con impressione un po' leggera, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana con scudo, margini brevi in alto, a lato di circa 1 cm, sulla battuta in basso. Stato unico.Analogamente al Testa, al Castiglione e al Della Bella, Salvator Rosa sentì l'incisione come il mezzo tecnico più adatto ad esprimere il suo linguaggio espressivo ed infatti insieme agli artisti sopra citati è da considerare protagonista della storia dell'incisione italiana del Seicento.Esponente di una vasta cultura eclettica, i suoi molteplici interessi figurativi avevano come poli il classicismo carraccesco, il naturalismo del Ribera, la pittura romana contemporanea e il mondo antico.Da quest'ultimo in particolare il Rosa sembra trarre spunto per le sue colte composizioni incise che, come già nel Testa, si ricollegano alle tematiche care alla filosofia stoica, glorificando le virtù con allegorie assai complesse e costruite. A questo aspetto va aggiunto anche l'interesse per il mondo esoterico che gli ispirò composizioni negromantiche in pitture.La sua grande abilità tecnica e la padronanza del mezzo incisorio all'acquaforte hanno fatto sì che le stampe di Salvator Rosa venissero apprezzate sin dall'antichità, copiate e ricercate da collezionisti e mercanti.

      Nürnberg, Michael Endter, 1661. - Zweite deutsche Ausgabe des bedeutenden europäischen Schäferromans in der Bearbeitung Harsdörffers, so zuerst 1646 erschienen; beide Ausgaben sind äußerst selten. Der Roman war bereits 1619 von Kuefstein übersetzt und veröffentlicht worden. Harsdörffer überarbeitete diesen Text, passte ihn den Lebensverhältnisen des städtischen Patriziats an und fügte als Teil 3 die deutsche Fassung von Gil Polos 'Los cinos libros de la Diana enamorada' (1564) hinzu, die er unter Berücksichtigung der lat. Fassung von Caspar von Barths 'Erotodiscalus' (1625) übersetzte. Der unvollendete Roman Montemayors (1559) mit seinen Liebesgeschichten in ländlicher Szenerie war von größtem Einfluss auf die europäische Schäferdichtung. Dieses spanisch geschriebene Buch des Portugiesen Montemayor (um 1520-1561) war das erste Werk einer neuen Gattung auf der Iberischen Halbinsel, die Sannazaro ('Arcadia' 1504) in Anknüpfung an den Hirtenroman 'Daphnis und Cloe' in die europäische Literatur wiedereingeführt hatte. "Unter dem Einfluß der 'Diana' des Montemayor entstanden sowohl die 'Arcadia' (1590) des Engländers Philip Sidney, die ihrerseits in Deutschland von Martin Opitz bearbeitet wurde, als auch die 'Astrée' (1610) des Franzosen Honoré d'Urfé" (KNLL). "Mit der Hauptfabel des Romans, der unglücklichen Liebe des Schäfers Sereno zur Schäferin Diana, sind mehrere Nebengeschichten verbunden. Trotz der vorherrschenden Idyllik spielt dies alles nicht in einem erfundenen Arkadien, sondern ist hineingestellt in die Berge der spanischen Landschaft León . Die Naturschilderungen erscheinen als eine besondere Stärke des Werkes. Die Romangestalten sind keine arkadischen Schäfer, sondern gleichsam verkleidete Gestalten der feudalen Gesellschaft. Das Ganze ist jedoch merkwürdig überlagert von phantastischen Elementen: So greifen zum Beispiel ständig Zauberwesen in die Geschicke der Menschen ein" (Gysi/Böttcher u. a.). Der Erfolg der 'Diana' war ohne Beispiel. Schon Cervantes äußerte seine hohe Meinung: Im 6. Kapitel des 'Don Quijote' hebt der literaturkundige Pfarrer die 'Diana' als Kunstwerk von den vorherrschenden Machwerken dieser Art ab. Die 'Diana' verdiene es nicht, dass man sie wie die anderen Ritterromane verbrenne. Er sei vielmehr dafür, dass man "ihr alles wegschneide, was von der weisen Felicia und dem verzauberten Wasser handelt, sowie die meisten Verse in längeren Silbenmaßen, und es verbleibe ihr in Gottes Namen die Prosa und die Ehre, das erste von solcherlei Werken zu sein" (Slg Dietrich 150, Dt. v. L. Braunfels, Leipzig 1953, S. 58) Am Schluss finden sich Gedichte von 'Strephon', d. i. ebenfalls Harsdörffer, und Widmungsgedichte u. a. von S. Betulius, d. i. Sigmund von Birken. Bände 2 und 3 mit gestoch. Wappen-Exlibris der Anna Maria Freyin von Weissenfeld, die 1696 unter Omeis als 83. Mitglied mit dem Gesellschaftsnamen 'Albanie' (weiße Seeblume) in den Pegnesischen Blumenorden aufgenommen wurde. – Stockfleckig, im Satzspiegel gebräunt.

        The South front of Kensington Palace, as seen from the Verges of the great Walk / Façade Méridionale du Palais de Kensington, vue la grande allée

      London: Robert Sayer and John Bowles & Son, [no date]. Hand-coloured engraving, printed on laid paper backed with a 20th-century archival sheet. Very good condition apart from some light soiling, a 1/2" tear in the bottom margin, a small loss in the lower right-hand corner, and a few minor water stains in the right margin, one of which is just within the right platemark. A very fine image of Kensington Palace and its expansive grounds. Erected in 1661 for the Earl of Nottingham, Kensington Palace became the royal residence of William III in 1689. Over the years, it underwent various renovations by architects such as Nicholas Hawksmoor and Sir Christopher Wren. The palace was surrounded by an extensive park, the vast grounds of which are pictured here, that was expanded and laid out by the celebrated garden designers Henry Wise and Charles Bridgeman. Visible on the far right side of this beautiful print is one of the chief formal tree-lined avenues that were characteristic of the park. John Tinney was both an engraver and "a print seller, and carried on business at the Golden Lion in Fleet Street, London, where all his own works were published. His mezzotint plates include portraits of Lavinia Fenton, after John Ellys; George III, after Joseph Highmore; Chief Baron Parker; and John Wesley; also some fancy subjects after Boucher, Lancret, Rosalba, Correggio, and others. He engraved in line a set of ten views of Hampton Court and Kensington Palace, after Anthony Highmore, and some of Fontainebleau and Versailles, after Jean Rigaud. Some of the plates in Ball's Antiquities of Constantinople , 1729, are also by him. Tinney is now remembered as the master of the distinguished engravers William Woollett, Anthony Walker, and John Browne." ( DNB ) Cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        TITLE PAGE: TABLE DES CARTES ETC: DU SR. SANSON CONTENUES DANS CE VOLLUME.

      - Highly decorative folio size table of contents with stunning original colour from Atlas Nouveau by Pierre Mortier, shows Atlas on the left-hand side, the personification of Geography on the right, and an interior of a library with ancient geographers on the bottom. Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) was one of the most prominent commercial map publishers of his era. A Dutchman of French Huguenot extraction he maintained privileged contacts in Paris, and found ways to find financial advantage from new French geographic discoveries. Based in Amsterdam, Mortier benefitted from the Dutch Republic’s highly developed print market and lenient censorship laws. After his death, the business was continued by his heirs who later forged a partnership with Jean Covens, forming the firm of Covens & Mortier, which operated until 1774.

        BY THE KING. A PROCLAMATION, AGAINST EXPORTATION, AND BUYING AND SELLING OF GOLD AND SILVER AT HIGHER RATES THAN IN OUR MINT: AS ALSO AGAINST OUR CULLING, WASHING, OR OTHERWISE DIMINISHING OUR CURRENT MONEYS

      [London, 1661. Printed on five separate oblong folio sheets, mounted on stiff card. Minor dust soiling, with the ex-lib. mark of the Bibliotheca Lindesiana. Good. This proclamation orders a halt to the exportation of gold and silver in response to a lack of both in circulation throughout the British empire. This paucity of hard coin is attributed to the widespread practice of buying up gold and silver at inflated prices with the specific design of exporting it to foreign countries. The proclamation makes it clear that the law also extends to the activities of British merchants acting abroad. This law was enacted contemporaneously with the infamous navigation acts which began in 1660 and limited the trade of the colonies to Great Britain exclusively. The present law would have been a similar blow to the colonies by prohibiting the exportation of British currency to other nations, thus serving as a further restriction on their trade. Extremely rare. OCLC locates only one copy, at the Guildhall Library.

        Book of Kells 8. Jahrhundert – Trinity College Library, Dublin, Ms. 58 (A.I.6) Einer der geheimnisvollsten Kunstschätze. Mystisches Zeugnis frühen irischen Christentums.

      - Das Book of Kells enthält so manche Miniatur des frühen Mittelalters, die zu den schönsten zählt, die je geschaffen wurde. Bis auf zwei sind alle Seiten dieser Handschrift mit einer fast unbeschreiblichen Fülle symbolträchtiger und mystischer Malerei ausgeschmückt. Die Handschrift beeindruckt sowohl in der Anzahl als auch in der Größe der Pergamentseiten, die durchschnittlich die Maße von 33 x 25 cm aufweisen. Es wurde nicht für den täglichen Gebrauch und auch nicht für das Studium gefertigt, sondern sollte ein geheiligtes Werk sein und an hohen Festtagen auf dem Altar das Wort Gottes repräsentieren. Das Book of Kells wurde vermutlich im Kloster Iona um das Jahr 800 von unbekannten, genialen Künstlern geschaffen. Ein erster Hinweis auf seine Existenz findet sich in einem Bericht von 1007 über einen Diebstahl in der Kirche von Kells, in dem das Buch "Das große Evangeliar des Columcille, die Hauptreliquie der westlichen Welt" genannt wird. Bald darauf wurde das in Kells vergrabene Buch aufgefunden. Es blieb in Kells, bis man es während der Regierungszeit Cromwells aus Sicherheitsgründen nach Dublin brachte. Um 1661 übergab es Henry Jones, Bischof von Meath, dem Trinity College. Seither wird es in der Bibliothek des College in Dublin gehütet.Das Book of Kells enthält vor allem die vier Evangelien. Aber auch andere Texte fanden Aufnahme: etwa am Anfang der Handschrift Kanontafeln, die die Konkordanzverzeichnisse enthalten, die von Eusebius von Cäsarea zusammengestellt worden waren, oder für das Kloster Kells wichtige besitzrechtliche Urkunden. Der lateinische Text wurde in stolzer insularer Halbunziale geschrieben, die wie auch die Illumination einen Höhepunkt irischen Kunstschaffens darstellt. Das Book of Kells muß in einem Skriptorium entstanden sein, das selbst die ausgeklügelten Finessen der Handschriftenherstellung beherrschte, denn nur mit einem äußerst fundierten technischen Wissen und hervorragenden Kenntnissen über vergangene und zeitgenössische Kunst war es möglich, eine solche Fülle symbolhafter und geheimnisvoller Darstellungen zu schaffen. Die Faksimile-Edition besteht aus einer aufeinander abgestimmten Einheit von Faksimileband, wissenschaftlichem Kommentarband und einer Schmuckkassette. Die Auflage ist weltweit auf 1480 numerierte Exemplare beschränkt, wobei 740 Exemplare für den angelsächsischen Raum reserviert sind. Die 680 Seiten umfassende Handschrift wird bis ins kleinste Detail und vollkommen originalgetreu im Format von ca. 33 x 25 cm wiedergegeben. Sie entstand in einzigartiger Verbindung modernster technischer Verfahren und hochqualifizierter Handarbeit. Der Einband besteht aus feinstem weißen Leder. Die den Originalseiten entsprechend randbeschnittenen Bogen wurden von Hand auf vier echte Bünde geheftet. Der Kommentarband umfaßt 400 Seiten. Die Experten: Dr. J.J. Alexander, Professor für Kunstgeschichte am Institute of Fine Arts, New York; Anthony Cains, Leiter der Restaurierungsabteilung, Trinity College Library, Dublin; Geraóid MacNiocaill, Professor für Geschichte, University College Galway; Dr. Patrick McGurk, Dozent für Geschichte des Mittelalters, Birbeck College, University of London, und Dr. Bernard Meehan, Leiter der Handschriftenabteilung, Trinity College Library, Dublin. Herausgeber der deutschen Ausgabe des Kommentarbandes ist Prof. Dr. Anton von Euw, Konservator am Schnütgen-Museum Köln und Professor für mittelalterliche Kunstgeschichte an der Universität Köln. Der weltbekannte Autor Umberto Eco verfaßte ein mitreißendes Vorwort. Bei dem vorliegenden Exemplar handelt es sich um eine gut erhaltene Ausgabe aus "Zweiter Hand", wie neu! Daher der günstige Preis. COMMENTARY IN GERMAN Bl Eine Rechnung mit ausgewiesener Mehrwertsteuer liegt Ihrer Bestellung bei.

        A TREATISE OF THE SIBYLS, so highly celebrated, as well by the antient heathens, as the holy fathers of the church; giving an accompt of the names, and number of the Sibyls, of their qualities, the form and matter of their verses;

      London, printed by T(homas) R(oycroft) for the author, 1661.. as also of the books now extant under their names, and the errours crept into Christian religion, from the impostures contained therein, particularly, concerning the state of the just, and unjust after death. ... Englished by J. Davies. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, 1661. Folio, 285 x 185 mm, 11¼ x 7¼ inches, pages: (4), 293, (7), headpieces and decorated initials to chapter headings, bound in full contemporary calf, blind-tooled border to covers, rebacked in lighter leather, gilt rules and original gilt lettered label to spine, new endpapers. Covers slightly marked, small scrape to leather on lower cover, engraved armorial bookplate preserved on front pastedown (Thomas Fuller M.D. (1634-1734) physician and preacher who published a compilation of proverbs entitled Gnomologia), 1 page has small pale ink stain, just affecting 1 word, 1 small corner tip torn off, otherwise text clean and binding tight and firm. A very good copy. DAVID BLONDEL (1591-1655), was a French Protestant clergyman, historian and classical scholar. In 1650 he succeeded G. J. Vossius in the professorship of history at Amsterdam. His works were very numerous; in some of them he showed a remarkable critical faculty, as in his dissertation on Pope Joan (1647, 1657), in which he came to the conclusion, now universally accepted, that the whole story is a mere myth. Considerable Protestant indignation was excited against him on account of this book. His work on the Sibyls of classical times was first published in French in 1649.
