His work on Galen's four temperamental types was first published in 1607 and 'went beyond the usual expository tradition of such treatises. Lively, witty, and concerned at least as much to entertain as instruct, it foreshadowed the literary culmination of the tradition in Burton"s Anatomy of Melancholy' (ODNB). It contains an early reference to the dangers of tobacco. (Krivatsy, 17th Cent.

Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

This immense compilation--which, in the course of expounding its theme, divulged a vast number of cures which Boyle had come across and tried--was to prove his most extensive medical work and it was widely cited in the debates on medical practice of the time. Boyle also wrote extensively on the application of science more generally, and some sections of these writings were to be published as the second section of part 2 of Usefulness in 1671 (ODNB).

Het is bekend dat de VOC veel aandacht besteedde aan de Heidelbergse Catechismus. Deze catechismusverklaring was dan ook een van de standaardwerken welke meegegeven werd aan boord van de Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie, de ziekenbezoeker was gewoon om uit het Schatboek van Ursinus te lezen als men op zee was en tevens werd het werk gebruikt als evangelisatiemateriaal onder de bewoners van de koloniën van de VOC. Het tweede deel is dan ook o.a. opgedragen aan de 'Bewindthebberen der Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie' en prijst hun werkzaamheden om 'het Licht der H. Waerheyt voort te setten tot die blinde Heydenen &c.'. Dit exemplaar heeft een VOC-M band, wat betekend dat het verstrekt is door de VOC kamer van Zeeland welke gevestigd was te Middelburg. De kamer van Zeeland exporteerde één boek op elke drie boeken welke de kamer van Amsterdam exporteerde. Daarnaast werden de boeken voor het gebruik op het schip zelf voornamelijk vanuit Amsterdam geleverd. Hierdoor zijn boeken met het VOC-embleem van de kamer te Middelburg bijzonder schaars.

The front and back cover are gold-stamped with the VOC-monogram of the chamber of Zeeland which was situated at Middelburg. Explanation of the Catechism by the reformed theologian from Germany Zacharias Ursinus, 1534-1583. It is known that the VOC gave a lot attention to the Heidelberg Catechism. Hence this explanation of the catechism was one of the standard works aboard the ships of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The visitors of the sick were accustomed to read from the 'Schatboek' by Ursinus while being at sea and the work was also used as evangelisation-material among the inhabitants of the colonies of the VOC. The second volume is dedicated to the Principal Lords of the VOC ('Bewindthebberen der Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie') and praises their activities for bringing the light of the holy truth to the blind pagans ('het Licht der H. Waerheyt voort te setten tot die blinde Heydenen &c.'). This copy has a VOC-M binding, which means that it was provided by the VOC Chamber of Middelburg. The Chamber of Zeeland (Middelburg) exported one book to every three books the Chamber of Amsterdam exported. Usually the books for the ship's chest were also provided from Amsterdam. Due to these reasons books with the VOC-monogram of Middelburg are exceptionally rare. A fine copy.) The Landwehr, J. (1991). VOC.

        Prima parte (unica pubblicata) dello specchio del mare nel quale si descrivono tutti i porti, spiaggieÖdel Mediterraneo

      Marino e Celle, Genova 1664 - In Folio (mm 418x283); carte 3 non numerate compreso lo splendido frontespizio allegorico figurato, dedica e dedica al lettore; 152 pagine, 25 carte nautiche incise in rame. Anche le pagine di testo sono corredate da numerose illustrazioni silografiche di rade, porti e profili costieri. Pergamena settecentesca con titolo in oro su tassello. Tagli azzurrati. Esemplare molto bello, ben inchiostrato, del celebre atlante nautico. Minimi difetti alle ultime carte con rinforzo marginale delle ultime due e saltuarie macchie. Lo specchio del mare, atlante-portolano del Mediterraneo pubblicato nella sua prima edizione a Genova nel 1664 ed in seconda edizione nel 1679. Poco si conosce su tale capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, che ìa sue speseî fece incidere le pi? accreditate carte nautiche disponibili sul bacino del Mediterraneo dellíepoca. Le scarne notizie ci informano che líatlante ñ di pregevole fattura ñ presenta alcuni di questi documenti elaborati negli anni precedenti dallo stesso Levanto insieme ad altri tratti da uníopera olandese, De Lichtende Colomne ofte Zeespigel, pubblicata una ventina di anni prima da Anthoni Jacobsz e riutilizzata in seguito da numerosi altri cartografi (Goos, Donker, Thornton, Van Keulen ed altri). Infatti, la prima carta dellíAutore reca la seguente illuminante dicitura: costruite in Amsterdam et corrette dal Cap. Francesco Maria Levanto et a sue spese intagliate líanno 1663. Le carte nautiche riprendono in modo chiaro l'opera di Anthoni Jacobsz (1606-1650) ìGran libro di itinerari del mar Mediterraneoî, di grande rarit?, pubblicato nel 1654 da Goos. LíAtlante, dedicato al nobile savonese Giovanni Battista della Rovere, fu pubblicato a Genova da Gerolamo Marino e Benedetto Celle. Tale opera descrive le isole e le coste del Mediterraneo in dodici dimostrationi, corredate da carte nautiche e da illustrazioni raffiguranti panorami di coste e vedute di porti. Nellíintroduzione, líautore illustra i vari metodi per calcoli astronomici oltre a riportare in cinque tabelle le latitudini di numerosi porti. Il corredo delle carte si apre con due portolani generali del Mediterraneo, uno dedicato alla parte occidentale, líaltro al mare di levante, per poi poseguire con 25 fogli nautici numerati ciascuno raffigurante il tratto di costa descritta nella dimostratione che la segue. In tutte le carte sono presenti i principali toponimi e una serie di simboli (piccole ancore per i punti di approdo, crocette per gli scogli pericolosi, punteggiatura per i bassi fondali, una o pi? rose dei venti), mentre in un apposito riquadro, viene riportata la scala grafica in diverse misure, leghe olandesi, miglia italiane, leghe inglesi e francesi. Concludono ciascuna dimostratione le tabelle che riportano le distanze tra i principali luoghi espresse in leghe italiane ed una sequenza di vedute delle coste. Nonostante líopera non avesse avuto grande fortuna allíepoca, forse perchË riconosciuta come poco originale dai cartografi coevi, il Coronelli ñ che quasi certamente non conosceva il modello e le derivazioni nordiche ñ la volle inserire nel suo Atlante Veneto, come ultimo volume dellíedizione del 1698 (Valerio, 2002, p. 91). cartografia.

Pour laver cet affront, Louis XIV fit occuper Avignon et exigea des excuses publiques.

Seltene dritte deutsche Ausgabe (zuvor 1660, 1661) des bekannten, bis weit ins 18. Jh. wiederaufgelegten Traktats mit der Erfindung und Anwendungsweise des Wunderheilmittels "Pulvis sympatheticus" (ferrum sulfuricum siccum). Sir Kenelm Digby (1603-65) führte ein abenteuerliches Leben, war als Diplomat aktiv und fuhr auch als Kaperkapitän zur See. Nach dem Tode seiner Frau zu den Naturwissenschaften hingezogen, führte er zahlreiche chemische Experimente durch. "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 sulfate) in rainwater, which could be improved by drying in the sun and by mixture with gum tragacanth" (DSB IV, 95). "The discourse on the powder of sympathy, one of the most famous of Digby's productions" (Ferguson VI, 22), erschien zuerst 1658 in Paris (in französischer Sprache), dann im selben Jahr in London auf Englisch und hernach in der Übersetzung von H. Hupka auf Deutsch. Der 2. Teil (neu in dieser Ausgabe) mit dem Zwischentitel: "Petri Servii von Spoleto [.] außführliches Bedenken von des insgemein so genannten Waffen-Salben". "Ce P.

        Voyage de la France equinoxiale en l'isle de Cayenne

      First edition. In 1652 Father Biet sailed towards Cayenne to visit the French settlement under the command of Royville (and most immediately the Abbe de L' Isle-Marivault, although he never reached his destination, leaving Biet as head of the Spiritual mission), the expedition consisted of 600 men. During his time abroad Biet made trips to Barbados, Martinique and Guadalupe. The work is divided into three parts: the first deals with the journey to Cayenne and the French settling of the colony; the second with the 15 months of the duration of the expedition, the richest in details on the experiences of the settlers; and the third with the natural history, fertility of the land, and ethnological aspects of the natives, their costumes, language and manners. On pp. 339 - 432 there is a dictionary of the Galibi language. The work is rather hard to find, and much sought after as a fundamental source of information, virtually unparalleled by contemporaneous reports. Leclerc, 165. Sabin, 5269. Chadenat, 18.

        Suite of 16 engravings of a brown bear by Marcus de Bije after etchings by Marcus Gerards.

      Amsterdam, Nicolaes Visscher, 1664. 16 engravings, each measuring ca. 15.0 x 11.7 cm (size of the printing plates, excluding 2-4 cm margin), and passe-partouts of ca. 28 x 26 cm. They are numbered 1-16 in the lower right corner outside the printed area. The first engraving with title inscription, date, and the names of the illustrator, engraver, and publisher.= A complete suite of sixteen detailed and lively images of a brown bear (Ursus arctos) in a natural landscape and in different positions: walking, eating, drinking, sleeping, etc., seen from various angles. The images were engraved by Marcus de Bije (1612-1670) after etchings by the Flemish painter and engraver Marcus Gerards (or Gheeraerts) the Elder, who lived from ca. 1520 to about 1590. Gerards was among the first engravers in the Low Countries to experiment with etching techniques. This seems to be the second state, fide Hollstein, 61-76: the title page carrying both the year 1569 for Gerard's design, and 1664 for De Bije's engraving. This suite was published by Nicolaes Visscher in Amsterdam (spelled Nicolaus Visscher on the first plate). All the plates are framed (one frame being slightly larger); some images have a circular stamp on the verso, slightly shining through. Otherwise the images are clean and generally quite strong. In all, still a good, very rare, and attractive suite. Bartsch I.86.61; Hollstein 61 II.
