A splendid, fully complete copy, also with the often lacking errata leaf, in a fully contemporary, completely unrestored full calf binding, with an excellent contemporary Scottish provenance (the Balfours of Randerston).. First edition of this landmark work on forestry, one of the most influential texts ever published on the subject. The work shaped both the knowledge and the landscape of an entire nation throughout centuries."There can be no doubt that John Evelyn, both during his own lifetime and throughout the two centuries which have elapsed since his death in 1706, has exerted more individual influence, through his charming "Sylva", ... than can be ascribed to any other individual." (Nisbet, in the preface to the 1908 reprint of the 1706-edition).Apart from its pivotal importance to forestry, reforestration, the history of planting in Europe and the direct benefits from that, the book is famously the first book to be printed by the Royal Society, which had been founded in 1664 (the second being Robert Hooke's "Microscopia"). The book was a huge success and it became immensely influential, making Evelyn famous among his contemporaries - such as Pepys, Hooke, and Locke - as a horticultural pioneer . "If you take a stroll through one of the nation's long-established woodlands, there is a good chance its management was inspired, influenced or even instructed by John Evelyn's Sylva.Widely recognised as the first comprehensive study of UK trees, Sylva, or - to give its full title - A Discourse of Forest Trees, and the Propagation of Timber in his Majesty's Dominions, made its first public appearance in 1662 as a paper submitted to the newly formed Royal Society. Two years later, it was published as the Royal Society's first book and went on to not only shape people's knowledge but the landscape itself.And it was an instant success, proving popular beyond its intended audience of wealthy aristocratic landowners, who were urged by Evelyn to plant trees in order to replenish the nation's depleted timber stock.Four editions were produced during Evelyn's lifetime, and the book is still widely quoted and remains in print and freely available online 350 years after its first publication....He designed his first garden when he was 22 years old, two decades before he penned Sylva.It was as a young man, after deciding fighting as a Royalist in the Civil War was not the best career choice, that he travelled across Europe and became fascinated by the formal gardens of France and the expansive grounds of Italy.On his return to England, he continued his work in the garden of his home at Sayes Court in Deptford, South-East London.Being located near the Royal Dockyard on the Thames allowed Evelyn to experiment with newly arrived botanical delights, testing how the flora fared in his English country garden.His attention to detail, and the careful recording of his observations reflected the appetite for empirical evidence among the early pioneers of modern science. "He was one of the early fellows of the Royal Society, which was created in 1660 as a scientific organisation, and Evelyn had spoken with the fellows about his work in this area and it very much chimed with the Society's early objectives," explained Royal Society head librarian Keith Moore.What we do now will have a knock-on effect for generations to come Dr Gabriel Hemery, The New Sylva co-author:"Quite clearly, Evelyn's work in planting forest trees and harvesting the products from them - whether it was wood or apples - really hit the mark; it was exactly what the Royal Society was interested in at that time."And so the seeds of Sylva's success were planted, as landowners heeded Evelyn's advice."Of course, you have to remember that this was after the Civil War so trees across the nation had been denuded as part of the war effort but, as Evelyn himself says in the book, as a result of industrial activities - such as glass making - people were chopping down trees, therefore they had to be replaced," he told BBC News. "Also, he uses the phrase 'wooden walls' - [trees] were very important for the defence of the nation through ship building."...The lasting legacy of Evelyn's vision to sustain the nation's timber supplies was highlighted in 1812 when the book was republished as a call to arms to the nation's landowners as the Napoleonic Wars took their toll on timber supplies.And there were echoes of Evelyn in 1919, the year in which the UK's Forestry Commission was established to increase tree cover, which had fallen to just 5% as a result of the demand for timber during World War One.Today, trees are back in the headlines and on the political agenda. To coincide with the original book's 350th anniversary, two authors have written The New Sylva, a timely updated version for the 21st Century to highlight the strategic, economic and ecological importance of trees." (Mark Kinver, BBC News, Science & Environment: Trees: A personal and national legacy of Evelyn's Sylva. 2014)

        Regionum Indicarum per Hispanos olim devastatarum accuratissima descriptio, insertis Figuris aeneis ad vivum fabrefactis. Editio nova Priori longè correctior.

      Heidelberg, Wilhelm Walter, 1664. - Kl.-4°. Titel mit breiter, gest. Bord. u. 17 grossen Textkupfern von Theodor de Bry. 2 Bll., 112 SS. Hpgt. um 1900. Sabin 11285. VD 17 23:235933K.- Seltene Heidelberger Ausgabe der Berichte über die Grausamkeiten der spanischen Kolonialherrschaft in Hispaniola (Westindische Inseln).- Bartolomé de Las Casas (geb. 1474 in Sevilla; gest. 1566 bei Madrid), Historiker und Dominikanermönch, verfasst um 1542/43 die "Brevísima relación de la destrucción de las Indias occidentales", welche erstmals 1552 in Sevilla im Druck erschien. 1598 erschien dann in Frankfurt am Main die erste illustrierte Ausgabe mit den berühmten Kupferstichen von Theodor de Bry. Die Kupferplatten gelangten wohl später in den Besitz von Wilhelm Walter, der sie in der vorliegenden Ausgabe wieder abdruckte. 1542 wurden auf Veranlassung von Las Casas von der spanischen Krone Schutzgesetze (Leyes Nuevas) erlassen, die die willkürliche Folterung und Tötung von Indianern verboten. Las Casas wurde im Juli 1544 zum Bischof von Chiapas in Guatemala ernannt. Er setzte dort die von ihm vorgeschlagenen neuen Schutzgesetze für die Indianer durch. Er wurde deshalb in Madrid verleumdet und konnte nicht verhindern, dass die spanischen Indianerschutzgesetze 1545 wieder aufgehoben wurden. 1547 kehrte er nach Spanien zurück und lebte bis 1566 im Dominikanerkloster Santa Maria de Atocha in Madrid.- Sabin verzeichnet für den Anfang 4 Blätter. Das dürfte jedoch mit großer Sicherheit ein Irrtum sein, da mehrere Vergleichsexemplare (über KVK) jeweils nur 2 Blätter anführen. Titel im Kopfsteg knapp beschnitten und mit hs.

        Viaggi di Pietro della Valle il pellegrino.

      Venice, Paolo Baglioni, 1661-1664. - 12mo. 4 vols. (40), 670 pp. (2) ff. (1 blank), 734, (34) pp., (2) ff. (1 blank), 792, (18) pp. 756, (24) pp. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine titles; all edges of vol. 2 sprinkled in red. Early duodecimo reprint edition of Della Valle's complete "Viaggi", published while the first complete edition was still under the press. Della Valle's account is highly sought after as one of the earliest printed sources for the early history of Dibba, the coastal region at the northeastern tip of the United Arab Emirates, today ruled by the Emirates of Fujairah and of Sharjah. - Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine, proceeding to Baghdad and then into Persia, where he married and sojourned in the court of Shah Abbas. While staying with the Sultan of Bandar Abbas, he "met the son of the ruler of Dibba who was visiting. From this he learned that Dibba had formerly been subject to the kingdom of Hormuz, but was at that time loyal to the Safavids who in 1623 sent troops to Dibba, Khor Fakkan and other ports on the southeast coast of Arabia in order to prepare for a Portuguese counter-attack following their expulsion from Hormuz (Jarun). In fact, the Portuguese under Ruy Freire were so successful that the people of Dibba turned on their Safavid overlords, putting them all to death, whereupon a Portuguese garrison of 50 men was installed at Dibba. More Portuguese forces, however, had to be sent to Dibba in 1627 as a result of an Arab revolt. Curiously, two years later the Portuguese proposed moving part of the Mandaean population of southern Iraq, under pressure from neighbouring Arab tribes, to Dibba" (UAE History: 2000 to 200 years ago - UAEinteract, online). "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities" (Gurney). He continued his travels east to the coast of India, Goa and Muscat, and thence back to Aleppo by way of Basra. He reached Rome in 1626, where the original Italian text of his letters written to the Neapolitan physician Mario Schipano was published. Only the first volume, dealing with Turkey, saw print during his lifetime. The two-part volume II on Persia was released in 1658, four years after his death; in 1662 the Turkey volume saw a second edition, and the set was concluded in 1663 with the volume on India. A single-volume English translation of the Indian travels appeared in 1665. - Occasional slight brownstaining, otherwise fine. Röhricht 947, p. 238. Tobler 95. Weber II, 251.

        OEDIPUS CHIMICUS. Institutiones Chimicae Prodromae. Obscuriorum Terminorum & Principiorum Chimicorum, Mysteria Aperiens & resolvens. Opusculum, omnibus Medicinae, & Chimiae Studiosis, lectu perquàm utile & necessarium.

      Apud Hermannum à Sande, Francofurti 1664 - Testo latino. Cm.13x7,7. Pg.(12), 192, (8). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con unghie e laccetti di chiusura, sempre pergamenacei. Titoli manoscritti al dorso. La seconda carta del volume è collazionata su carta diversa dalle altre: al recto vi compare una vignetta allegorica raffigurante Edipo e la Sfinge, al verso l'incipit della Dedicatoria al Sig. "Francisco De Le Böe, dicto Sylvio". Una carta fuori testo raffigurante la "Divina Metamorphosis" (medaglia di Praga, 1648). Cartiglio decorativo inciso in fine al testo. Al foglio di guardia antica notazione di proprietà manoscritta, con timbro in ceralacca e piccolo cartiglio ritagliato e incollato. Figlio di un ministro luterano, il medico e matematico Johann Joachim Becher (Speyer, 1635-1682) fu in gioventù al servizio dell'Elettore di Mainz in qualità di docente di medicina presso il locale ateneo. Ebbe vita assai avventurosa, svolgendo importanti mansioni in Baviera, a Vienna, in Olanda e a Londra. Il presente costituisce il suo testo più conosciuto. Si tratta di un approfondito studio di chimica e di alchimia, in cui il Becher (nome latinizzato Becherius) tratta delle principali sostanze e operazioni chimiche. In particolare si spinge a confutare la fondatezza dei quattro elementi aristotelici (aria, acqua, terra e fuoco) e dei tre principi della qualità di Paracelso (zolfo, sale, mercurio) dando così impulso alle nuove teorie già esposte dall'Helmont e dal Boyle. Così il Neville dipinge l'Opera: "an important book that contains the germs of the ideas that were later (by G.E. Stahl) developed into the theory of phlogiston". Ancora si legge in "Cristina di Svezia. Scienza ed alchimia nella Roma barocca" (Dedalo Editore): "Nel 1664 Becher aveva pubblicato il suo "Oedipus Chimicus", nel quale non solo era ripresa tutta la problematica ermetico - paracelsiana relativamente alla chimica ed ai suoi concetti fondamentali, ma anche quella dei diversi tipi di linguaggio usati dai chimici, che dimostravano che lo studio della chimica era antichissimo. La Monade geroglifica di John Dee, le ricerche di mitologia alchemica di Michael Maier, e quelle di Kircher, i caratteri cinesi e i geroglifici egiziani erano gli strumenti per svelare i modi attraverso i quali, in passato, era stato trasmesso il sapere alchemico". Per meglio individuare la complessità del messaggio del Becher, si riporta integralmente l'Indice dei Titoli dell'Opera: "Prima Materia; Duo Principia substantiae: Sulphur & Sal; Tria Principia qualitatis: sal, sulphur & Mercurius; Quatuor Elementa: Ignis, aër, aqua, terra Chimicè sumpta; Quinque requisita generationis: Calor, sperma Menstruum, Matrix, pondus; Sex Operationes reales: Accretio, Decretio, Solutio, Coagulatio, Destructio, plusquamperfectio; Septem requisita Artificis: Termini, instrumenta, materiae, operationes, scripta Chimica, Methodus Chimiae studendi, Methodus Chimicè Philophandi". L'Opera è dedicata a Franz Le Böe, noto con lo pseudonimo di Sylvius (1614-1672), fondatore a Leida del primo laboratorio universitario di chimica. Esistono due edizioni del 1664 della presente Opera, ed a tutt'oggi non è chiarita la diatriba su quale di esse abbia visto la luce per prima: oltre alla presente di Francoforte l'altra fu stampata a Amsterdam da Elizeum Weyerstraten. 150 gr.

        Habiti antichi overo raccolta di figure dal Gran Titiano

      Combi and La Noù, Venice 1664 - BEAUTIFULLY COLOURED 8vo. pp. (xiv) 415 (i), lacking preliminary blank. Italic letter, printer’s device on title page and verso of last (latter part coloured), various woodcut ornaments (one fully coloured), blank outer corner of one preliminary strengthened, ‘Bruges 1735’ beside first (Papal) costume portrait, and partly erased in margin of title page. Four hundred and fifteen nearly full page costume woodcuts, all in striking contemporary colouring, expertly painted with no bleed-through. A very good clean copy in contemporary calf, spine richly gilt, morocco label, edges speckled red. Remarkable copy of the third edition of this the most influential costume book of its day, and the first edition to ascribe the illustrations to ‘the great Titian’. Vecellio (1521-1621), painter and engraver, in fact was related to Titian and was probably his assistant who accompanied him to Augsburg in 1598. The cuts were the work of Christopher Chreiger, an artist from Nuremberg who worked at Venice in the second part of the C16. Both he and Vecellio illustrated a number of important books. In this edition the first 190 illustrations are dedicated to Italy, the next 104 to other places in Europe from Lithuania to London, then 51 from Turkey, Greece and the Balkans, 22 from Africa, 35 from Asia including China and Japan, 13 from the Americas including Florida and Virginia. The costumes range from the richly beautiful to the homely to the exotic; many of the more far flung were partially derived from other works such as those of Nicolay and de Coeck on the Turks but Vecellio’s illustrations in turn influenced generations in their mental picture of their far away contemporaries, and still do today. The work is handsome in black and white but richly painted in a full range of deep watercolours with beautifully enhanced details, becoming an artist’s gorgeous survey of the history of the fashions of the world.

        Edit Du Roy Donné à Paris, le 28 May 1664. Portant Establissement d¿une Compagnie des Indes Occidentales, pour faire tout le Commerce dans les Isles & terres fermes de l¿Amerique, & autres Païs; aux Concessions, Pouvoirs, Facultez, Droits, Exemmptions & Privileges y contenus.

      Chez la Veuve Saugrain, a l¿entrée du Quay de Gevres, du cote du Pont au Change, au Paradis, Paris 1664 - quarto, 18, [2] pp., light red smudge to upper blank margin of first page, otherwise a fine clean copy. This decree establishes the French West India Company. The company was formed by this Edit to control all of the French American colonies, already settled or to be settled in South America, the West Indies, and Canada. This well-known company was established for the purpose of opening up trade with America principally along the Amazon, and in Canada, Acadia, Newfoundland, Florida and the islands of the Antilles. The company was granted a monopoly on trade with America, which was to last for forty years. It was supposed to populate Canada, using the profits of the sugar economy that began in Guadeloupe. Its capital was six million pounds and its headquarters was in Le Havre. The stock of the Company was so considerable that in less than six months, 45 vessels were equipped, with which they took possession of all the places in their grant, and established commerce. Despite its special privileges it soon got into difficulties. It was badly hit by the war of 1666 and could not face that of 1672. Colbert would not take over the risks and the Company was dissolved by Royal command in 1674. The King paid its debts amounting to 3,025,000 livres and took its capital of 1,287,185 livres as reimbursement, and the Colonies were reunited to the State. Variant issue of Wroth and Annan, numbers 60 and 61. This edition not in Sabin, or European Americana. See JCB III, p. 111, for its description of a variant issue in that library. Maggs did not have a copy in their 1936 catalog The French Colonisation of America. Not in Staton & Tremaine, not in Lande, not in Beinecke Lesser Antilles. Henry Stevens had a copy of the 1675 revocation of the Company in their 1926 catalog of Rare Americana, which, coincidentally, was also printed by Veuve Saugrain. (It was priced at £ 31 10s, and was the first copy that the firm had met with).

      Amsterdam, Heinrich von Aken, 1664. - Äußerst seltene zweite Ausgabe von Zesens berühmtestem und wichtigstem Roman, dem ersten großen Roman der deutschen Barockliteratur. Das Buch ist die erste Erzählung aus Zesens eigener Erfindung. Die bürgerliche Liebesgeschichte mit poetischen Einlagen gilt als Zesens Dichtung-und-Wahrheit-Roman, in dem sich nach seinem eigenem Zeugnis viel Autobiographisches findet. "Das unerfüllbare Liebesverhältnis zu der schönen 'Menschengöttin' Rosemund gibt Gelegenheit zu einem wahren Kult mit den Sensationen des Gefühls- und Empfindungslebens. Erotisches wird fast mystisch gesteigert . Zesens flimmernde Sprache löst in unerhörter Art ihren Gegenstand in sinnliche lustbetonte Qualitäten auf, von der Lautmalerei bis zur erotischen Metaphorik in einer Landschaftsschilderung" (Max Wehrli). "Auch das Motiv des konfessionellen Ehehindernisses ist neuartig. Die Erzählung ist reich mit 'Kling-getichten' und anderen vermischt" (Seebaß ausführlich). Ab S. 299 ist die im gleichen Jahr in Hamburg separat erschienene 'Lustinne' abgedruckt, die "gebundene Lust-Rede von Kraft und Würkung der Liebe". Am Schluss ein Register von Zesens originellen Neologismen. Der Kupfertitel ist signiert "Der Wachchende", d. i. Martien le Coq (vgl. Thieme/Becker VII 145). – Anfangs leichte Wurmspuren im weißen Rand, sonst sehr schön. Ich kann nur 2 Exemplare im Handel der letzten 50 Jahre nachweisen. – VD17 23:239105D; Dünnhaupt 28.2; Otto 98; Goed. III 99, 18b. Vgl.

The book is divided into three parts: the first tells the establishment of the colony and its journey to Cayenne, the second is a series of observations on the fifteen months ago by the author there and the last deals with the temperament of the country, the fertility of the land, habits and indigenous customs. A final section consists of a Franco-Indian dictionary is the first time a Galibi seems lexicon. Some chapters also discuss Guadeloupe, Barbados and Martinique. Chaplain of the 700 settlers of the expedition sent in Guyana May 18, 1652, Antoine Biet accurately describes the second attempt at colonization. This experiment was a failure, the hundred settlers who survived it was forced to flee Cayenne to Suriname in January 1654 and then to Barbados, after suffering from tropical diseases and the fierce resistance of Galibis Indians. According Richarderie The Butcher "no relationship gives as much light as that of Biet Natural Guyana; He portrayed them in all their primitive simplicity. The vocabulary of their language is done with care "(Universal Library Travel) Ex-dono manuscript on the first cover page: "This book belongs to Mr. Adam Sharon." - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'époque en plein veau brun. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés, reste d'une étiquette de titre manuscrite. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. La reliure a été habilement restaurée. Déchirure marginale restaurée en marge basse de la page de titre. Quelques infimes salissures. L'ouvrage se divise en trois parties : la première relate l'établissement de la colonie et de son voyage jusqu'à Cayenne, la seconde est une suite d'observations sur les quinze mois passés par l'auteur là-bas et la dernière traite du tempérament du pays, de la fertilité de la terre, des us et coutumes des autochtones. Une dernière partie est constituée d'un dictionnaire franco-amérindien, c'est la toute première fois qu'un lexique galibi parait. Certains chapitres évoquent également la Guadeloupe, la Barbade et la Martinique. Aumônier des 700 colons de l'expédition envoyée en Guyane le 18 mai 1652, Antoine Biet relate avec précision la deuxième tentative de colonisation. Cette expérience fut un échec, la centaine de colons qui y survécut fut contrainte de fuir Cayenne vers le Surinam en janvier 1654 puis vers la Barbade, après avoir souffert des maladies tropicales et de la farouche résistance des Indiens Galibis. D'après Boucher de La Richarderie, « aucune relation ne donne autant de lumières que celle de Biet sur les naturels de la Guyane ; il les a dépeints dans toute leur simplicité primitive.

If the Palace of glory is not really a sequel, it's a second part provided by the author. It is not known why it was published by another publisher, perhaps this change, and the year between the two editions has created this continuous separation of two books ..

The first book is illustrated with a frontispiece allégogorique Chauveau and 12 boards inset coats of arms. Full Sheepskin brown vintage. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco.

In addition to the science of heraldry, which contains all the heraldry books of the time, the Palace of honor is distinguished by several happy sigularités, including a chapter on all orders of chivalry in Europe, another on ceremonies, tournaments, battle cries; much of it is devoted to the history of the illustrious families of France. The Palace of Glory also include this part in consecrating families to France missing and some large families of Europe.

Folio (324 x 215 mm). Nineteenth-century red morocco, triple fillet border, spine richly gilt in compartments, gilt lettered in two, edges gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt floral decorative roll to turn-ins, by Francis Bedford (his inkstamp front free endpaper verso); rebacked with original spine laid down.

Third folio edition, second enlarged issue, of Shakespeare's plays, generally regarded as the rarest of the 17th-century folio editions. An unknown number of copies is thought to have been destroyed in the Great Fire of London of 1666. The third folio is a reprint of the second (1632), but the second issue adds seven plays to the corpus, although of these only Pericles is now considered authentic. The first issue appeared with the portrait on the title page and the Jonson verses on the verso of the first leaf. For this second issue, the first two leaves were cancelled and replaced by a conjugate pair, with the portrait above the Jonson verses facing the title page which lists the seven added plays which were added on eleven supplementary quires. Provenance: John Pierpont Morgan's copy, with his gilt-stamped red leather armorial bookplate and shelf-mark, "W 11 A copy 3"; bought by him from Henry Sotheran & Co. in June 1896. The Sotheran invoice specifies this copy already to have been bound by Francis Bedford (1799?-1883), who was considered the leading English bookbinder of his time, surpassed only by the best French binders (ODNB).

Ledereinband der Zeit mit ornamentaler Rückenvergoldung im Rokokostil. [Hardcover / fest gebunden].. Ägidius Gutbier wurde in der Stadt Weissensee in Thüringen am 1. Septbr. 1617 geboren, sein Vater war dort Bürgermeister und stammte aus einer schlesischen Familie. Er war einer der bedeutendsten und gelehrtesten Orientalisten seiner Zeit. Er errichtete in Hamburg eine Druckerei im eigenen Hause, welche von 1664-67 bestand, und schnitt die Typen zu der Übersetzung des hier vorliegenden Neuen Testamentes (1663-64) sowie der dazugehörigen Werke "Lexicon Syriacum, continens omnes N. T. Syriaci dictiones et particulas" (1667) & "Notae criticae in N. T. Syriacum" (1667) unter erheblichen Mühen mit eigener Hand, wobei er den jakobitischen (westsyrischen) Schrifttypus wählte und die Bleilettern von dem Hamburger Schriftgießer Bartholomeus Voskens gießen ließ. Den syrischen Text versah er mit "lexikalischen und textkritischen Hilfsmitteln. Mit diesen Beigaben stellt Gutbiers Edition eine beachtliche textkritische Leistung dar, die die Edition Widmannstetters an Wertschätzung übertraf" (Kayser, Hamburger Bücher 1491-1850, No. 45). Außer diesen Arbeiten hat er zahlreiche Schriften theologisch-philosophischen Inhaltes herausgegeben und Anderes handschriftlich hinterlassen; er starb noch im Jahre seiner letzten veröffentlichten Druckschrift, 1667 auf einer Reise nach Thüringen. - Darlow/Moule 8966 kennt mehrere Druckvarianten der ersten Ausgabe und des Vorwortes: "At least four varieties exist of the printed title [...] they may be distinguished by the ornament appearing above the word 'Hamburgi' [...] Var. d). interlacing curves" (bei unserer Ausgabe zutreffend); "first sheet of preface, signed 'a', ends with catchword 'usus'" (bei unserer Ausgabe zutreffend). Der selbstdruckende Übersetzer war hier wohl in dauerhafter Redaktion an seinem eigenen Werk tätig. - Der robuste Ledereinband leicht berieben. Rücken etwas stärker berieben, mit kleinen Wurmgängen an den Kapitalen und (oberflächlich) auf dem Hinterdeckel. Papier gleichmäßig gebräunt und stellenweise minimal fleckig. Hinteres Innengelenk leicht abgeplatzt. - Aus dem Besitz des bekannten Rostocker Alttestamentlers Gottfried Quell mit dessen Besitzeintrag "Godofredus Quell" in Tinte auf den Titelseiten. - Insgesamt sehr gut erhaltenes und seltenes Exemplar der druckgeschichtlich bedeutenden und gesuchten Werke in einem Band. - Sammlung Böhme 366 (mehrere Ausgaben). - Schröder, Hamb. Schriftsteller III, 1377.

        OEDIPUS CHIMICUS. Institutiones Chimicae Prodromae. Obscuriorum Terminorum & Principiorum Chimicorum, Mysteria Aperiens & resolvens. Opusculum, omnibus Medicinae, & Chimiae Studiosis, lectu perquàm utile & necessarium.

      Apud Hermannum à Sande 1664 Testo latino. Cm.13x7,7. Pg.(12), 192, (8). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con unghie e laccetti di chiusura, sempre pergamenacei. Titoli manoscritti al dorso. La seconda carta del volume è collazionata su carta diversa dalle altre: al recto vi compare una vignetta allegorica raffigurante Edipo e la Sfinge, al verso l'incipit della Dedicatoria al Sig. "Francisco De Le Böe, dicto Sylvio". Una carta fuori testo raffigurante la "Divina Metamorphosis" (medaglia di Praga, 1648). Cartiglio decorativo inciso in fine al testo. Al foglio di guardia antica notazione di proprietà manoscritta, con timbro in ceralacca e piccolo cartiglio ritagliato e incollato. Figlio di un ministro luterano, il medico e matematico Johann Joachim Becher (Speyer, 1635 - 1682) fu in gioventù al servizio dell'Elettore di Mainz in qualità di docente di medicina presso il locale ateneo. Ebbe vita assai avventurosa, svolgendo importanti mansioni in Baviera, a Vienna, in Olanda e a Londra. Il presente costituisce il suo testo più conosciuto. Si tratta di un approfondito studio di chimica e di alchimia, in cui il Becher (nome latinizzato Becherius) tratta delle principali sostanze e operazioni chimiche. In particolare si spinge a confutare la fondatezza dei quattro elementi aristotelici (aria, acqua, terra e fuoco) e dei tre principi della qualità di Paracelso (zolfo, sale, mercurio) dando così impulso alle nuove teorie già esposte dall'Helmont e dal Boyle. Così il Neville dipinge l'Opera: "an important book that contains the germs of the ideas that were later (by G.E. Stahl) developed into the theory of phlogiston". Ancora si legge in "Cristina di Svezia. Scienza ed alchimia nella Roma barocca" (Dedalo Editore): "Nel 1664 Becher aveva pubblicato il suo "Oedipus Chimicus", nel quale non solo era ripresa tutta la problematica ermetico - paracelsiana relativamente alla chimica ed ai suoi concetti fondamentali, ma anche quella dei diversi tipi di linguaggio usati dai chimici, che dimostravano che lo studio della chimica era antichissimo. La Monade geroglifica di John Dee, le ricerche di mitologia alchemica di Michael Maier, e quelle di Kircher, i caratteri cinesi e i geroglifici egiziani erano gli strumenti per svelare i modi attraverso i quali, in passato, era stato trasmesso il sapere alchemico". Per meglio individuare la complessità del messaggio del Becher, si riporta integralmente l'Indice dei Titoli dell'Opera: "Prima Materia; Duo Principia substantiae: Sulphur & Sal; Tria Principia qualitatis: sal, sulphur & Mercurius; Quatuor Elementa: Ignis, aër, aqua, terra Chimicè sumpta; Quinque requisita generationis: Calor, sperma Menstruum, Matrix, pondus; Sex Operationes reales: Accretio, Decretio, Solutio, Coagulatio, Destructio, plusquamperfectio; Septem requisita Artificis: Termini, instrumenta, materiae, operationes, scripta Chimica, Methodus Chimiae studendi, Methodus Chimicè Philophandi". L'Opera è dedicata a Franz Le Böe, noto con lo pseudonimo di Sylvius (1614 - 1672), fondatore a Leida del primo laboratorio universitario di chimica. Esistono due edizioni del 1664 della presente Opera, ed a tutt'oggi non è chiarita la diatriba su quale di esse abbia visto la luce per prima: oltre alla presente di Francoforte l'altra fu stampata a Amsterdam da Elizeum Weyerstraten.

        Ritterholds von Blauen. Adriatische Rosemund. Lust hägt Lust. Kupfertitel, 6 Bl., 367 S. Mit 12 ganzseit. Kupfern (in die Pag. einbezogen). 12°. Guter Pergamentbd d. Z.

      Amsterdam, Heinrich von Aken, 1664.. . Äußerst seltene zweite Ausgabe von Zesens berühmtestem und wichtigstem Roman, dem ersten großen Roman der deutschen Barockliteratur. Das Buch ist die erste Erzählung aus Zesens eigener Erfindung. Die bürgerliche Liebesgeschichte mit poetischen Einlagen gilt als Zesens Dichtung-und-Wahrheit-Roman, in dem sich nach seinem eigenem Zeugnis viel Autobiographisches findet. "Das unerfüllbare Liebesverhältnis zu der schönen 'Menschengöttin' Rosemund gibt Gelegenheit zu einem wahren Kult mit den Sensationen des Gefühls- und Empfindungslebens. Erotisches wird fast mystisch gesteigert ... Zesens flimmernde Sprache löst in unerhörter Art ihren Gegenstand in sinnliche lustbetonte Qualitäten auf, von der Lautmalerei bis zur erotischen Metaphorik in einer Landschaftsschilderung" (Max Wehrli). "Auch das Motiv des konfessionellen Ehehindernisses ist neuartig. Die Erzählung ist reich mit 'Kling-getichten' und anderen vermischt' (Seebaß ausführlich). Ab S. 299 ist die im gleichen Jahr in Hamburg separat erschienene 'Lustinne' abgedruckt, die "gebundene Lust-Rede von Kraft und Würkung der Liebe". Am Schluss ein Register von Zesens originellen Neologismen. Der Kupfertitel ist signiert "Der Wachchende", d. i. Martien le Coq (vgl. Thieme/Becker VII 145). - Anfangs leichte Wurmspuren im weißen Rand, sonst sehr schön. Ich kann nur 2 Exemplare im Handel der letzten 50 Jahre nachweisen. - VD17 23:239105D. Dünnhaupt 28.2. Otto 98. Goed. III 99, 18b. Vgl. Faber du Faur 814, Willems 1021 und Rahir 1120 (für die Ausgabe 1845).
