        Sylva, or a Discourse of Forest-Trees, and the Propagation of Timber in His Majesties Dominions . To which is annexed Pomona, or, an Appendix concerning Fruit-trees in relation to cider . Also, Kalendarium Hortense; or Gard'ners Almanac .

      Jo. Martyen and Ja. Allestry, London 1664 - (12 1/4 x 7 1/4 inches). Title printed in red and black with engraved armorial vignette, with the Royal Society attestation leaf facing the title and the errata leaf in the rear. Contemporary calf, covers panelled in blind, rebacked retaining the original spine and morocco lettering piece Provenance: William George Porter (early signature on title) Rare first edition of Evelyn's Sylva: the most important English work on dendrology of the 17th century. First published in 1664, this work was written by Evelyn at the request of the Royal Society in London, in an effort to address the problem of the fast disappearing forests and woodlands of England. "Arboriculture was an endless source of interest and delight to Evelyn. Throughout his life he was adding to his knowledge on the subject, from his own experience in the planting of trees, from observations made during his travels at home and abroad, and from other men's writings. From 1664 until 1706 Evelyn published four editions of Sylva and on each occasion the work was expanded. It contains an enormous amount of information concerning the cultivation of the various kinds of forest trees, and the uses of their timber, together with facts and anecdotes obtained from books, both classical and contemporary. The work was a success from the start. Its publication gave a great stimulus to planting in Britain, Charles II setting the example with the replenishing of the Royal forests" (Henrey I, p.107). The first edition is rare. Bradley Bibliography IV,p.107; Henrey I,135; Keynes, G. John Evelyn, 40; ESTC R12326; Wing E3516. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Missione al Gran Mogor del P. Ridolfo Aqvaviva ... sua vita e morte, e d'altri quattro compagni uccisi in odio della fede in Salsete di Goa.

      Milano: Lodovico Monza 12mo. [4] ff., 193, [1] p., [1] f.. 1664 Rodolfo Acquaviva (a.k.a., Ridolfo Aquaviva), nephew of Claudio Acquaviva the fifth Superior General of the Society of Jesus (1581–1615), after his Jesuit novitiate was ordained a priest in 1578 at Lisbon and sailed for India. Arriving in India he taught at the Jesuit school (Saint Paul's College) in Goa, founded by St. Francis Xavier and the site of the first printing press in India. In 1580 the Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great summoned him to his court and thus began Acquaviva's mission to the Mughal empire. His was, in fact, the first Jesuit mission there. As Prof. Emerita Frances W. Pritchett of Columbia University writes on her great website (http://www.columbia.edu/itc/mealac/pritchett/00islamlinks/ikram/part2_12.html): "Of all the aspects of Akbar's life and reign, few have excited more interest than his attitude toward religion. . . . [H]e built the Ibadat Khana, the House of Worship, which he set apart for religious discussions. Every Friday after the congregational prayers, scholars, dervishes, theologians, and courtiers interested in religious affairs would assemble in the Ibadat Khana and discuss religious subjects in the royal presence." It was to these discussions/conversations/debates that Acquaviva was invited. The religions represented were many, the major participants including Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Jains, and Zoroastrians. After several months Acquaviva felt his contributions to the debates insufficient to justify continuing as part of the mission and left the task to fellow Jesuits. Returning to Goa his missionary work led him to the Hindu Kshatriyas of Salcette, south of Goa, which proved a fatal decision. Prior to his arrival, the Jesuits with the aid of Portuguese troops had destroyed some temples there; the Cuncolim Revolt of July, 1583, was partially a result of those actions and it was in the revolt that => Acquaviva and the four companions alluded to in the title of this work were murdered. The author of this biography was a major Jesuit historian of the Society's activity in Asia. He was the author of the monumental Istoria della Compagnia di Gesu (1650–1673) in 6 folio volumes, Della vita e dell'istituto di S. Ignatio, fondatore della Compagnia di Gesu (1650), L'Asia (1653), Il Giappone, parte seconda dell'Asia (1660), La Cina, terza parte dell'Asia (1663), L'Inghilterra, parte dell'Europa (1667), L'Italia, prima parte dell'Europa (1673), and biographies of Jesuits Vincenzo Caraffa (1651), Robert Bellarmine (1678), Stanislas Kostka (1678), Francis Borgia (1681), and Niccolo Zucchi (1682). Also of interest are his works on science: Della tensione e della pressione (1677), Del suono, dei tremori armonici, dell'udito (1679), and Del ghiaccio e della coagulatione (1682). This is the second edition of Bartoli's account of Acquaviva and his mission, following the first of the previous year. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and COPAC locate just two copies of the 1663 edition, both in the U.S., and similarly only two copies of the 1664 (one in Germany, one at Oxford). Late 18th-century quarter vellum over light boards covered with green paper. Undeciphered 17th-century ownership inscription on title-page. Waterstaining, at times significant, at others barely visible. => A sound copy with no worming or tears.

Boards blind tooled. The second 'A gathering' has been bound at the wrong place, it should preceed the gatherings 'B-2Q4', which gatherings offer the observations and emendations of Menagius. The indices are also at the wrong place, they have been bound at the end of the preliminary leaves. This book does contain however at the end the often lacking 16 pages with the 'Auctarium addendorum et mutandorum in observationibus Aegidii Menagii in Diogenem Laertium', which 16 pages also include the 'errata typographica') (Condition: Vellum age-tanned. Back rubbed. Corners bumped. Vellum curling loose at the edges. Front flyleaf partly detached) (Note: The greatest known source of information about the philosophers of antiquity The 'Lives and Doctrines of the Philosophers' of the Greek author Diogenes Laertius, who lived probably in the first half of the third century A.D., is still 'our best indirect source of knowledge for classical philosophy'. The 'Lives' comprises both a biographical and a doxographical account, basically focused on Greek thinkers from the 6th to the 3rd century B.C. (from Thales to Epicurus), although references to schools and individuals extend to at least the 2nd century A.D.' (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass. 2010, p. 271) Diogenes Laertius drew his material from earlier compilations, and his doxographic account offers long excerpts from primary texts not transmitted elsewhere, for example Epicurus' 'Principal Doctrines'. Diogenes' reliability and value differ from passage to passage. Some give invaluable information, other passages offer mere caricature. His approach is not a 'systematic analysis, but rather a eulogistic narrative of the course of ancient philosophy, and of the four main classical schools, the Academy, Peripatetics, Stoics and Epicureans. Anecdotal and perhaps largely apocryphal in nature, still it gave to Renaissance humanists, like Leonardo Bruni, Machiavelli, Erasmus et alii, some conception of ancient philosophy, especially of Platonic and Epicurean thought.' (Ch.L. Stinger, 'Humanism and the Church Fathers: Ambrogio Traversari (1386-1439) and Christian antiquity in the Italian Renaissance', Albany 1977, p. 71) § The 'editio princeps' of Diogenes Laertius was published in Basel in 1533. This 1664 edition is based on the edition which was published in Rome in 1594 by the Italian scholar Thomas Aldobrandini, brother of Pope Clemens VIII. Under Pope Pius V he was 'Secretary of Briefs to Princes and of Latin Letters' of the Roman Curia. He died young, before he could finish his Latin translation of Diogenes Laertius, and complete and polish his notes. His version and notes do not extend beyond the 'Life of Leucippus' in the ninth book. His cousin, the Cardinal Pietro Aldobrandini completed the work and superintended its publication. Thomas Aldobrandini's Greek text and Latin translation were praised by the Diogenes' specialists Isaac and Meric Casaubon. His notes were incorporated in all later editions of Diogenes Laertius. This 1664 edition contains besides the Greek text and Latin translation of Aldobrandini (331 p.), the annotations of the French scholars Henricus Stephanus II, and Isaac Casaubon (58 p.), of Aldobrandini (92 p.), and of Meric Casaubon (16 p.), and the elaborate and learned commentary of the French scholar Giles de Ménage of Angers, or Aegidius Menagius (283 p.). Menagius, 1613-1692, was a parliamentary barrister and later became prior of Mont-Didier. He published a discourse on the Heautontimorumenos of Terentius and notes on Lucianus. Among classicists he is known for his notes on Diogenes Laertius, and among the specialists in gender studies as the author of the 'Historia Mulierum Philosopharum' (see below). This 1664 edition of Diogenes Laertius was published under the inspection of the English scholar and bishop John Pearson. Menagius worked for years on his commentary, but he had to abandon this project on the advice of his medicin, because of his bad health. A great part of it perished through the negligence of his secretary. When however the rumour reached England that Menagius had been compiling a huge commentary, the London publisher Pulleyn, wanting to publish a Diogenes edition, urged him to finish what he had begun. ('Pulleynus, repetitis litteris illum commovit, ut manum denuo admoveret telae, quam texere coeperat', Moss 1,400). Menagius put his hand once again on the plough and had printed in 1662 in Paris at his own cost a few copies of his commentary, which he sent to Bishop John Pearson for publication. § Menagius published in 1690 his 'Historia Mulierum Philosopharum'. He already had a 'soft' reputation, because he was ridiculed by Molière in his 'Femmes Savantes' (1672), where he appears as Vadius. For those involved in gender studies we quote the abstract of an article of professor Richard Maber: 'The late work of Gilles Ménage (1613-1692), 'Historia mulierum philosopharum' (1690), is a compilation of all the information that he could gather concerning women philosophers from earliest antiquity to the fourteenth century. It made little impact when first published, but is currently the subject of renewed interest in the context of women's studies, with recent translations into English, French, Italian, and Spanish. However the work's true importance is much greater than has been realised. Ménage included it, as he had always intended, in his monumental and definitive edition of Diogenes Laertius's Lives of the Philosophers (1692), the greatest known source of information about the (male) philosophers of antiquity. Ménage's Historia thus became a supplement, and corrective, to Diogenes Laertius, and was included with subsequent editions and translations of the irreplaceable Greek text. In this way, the reality of women's capacity for the highest intellectual achievement was incontrovertibly established, and women were integrated into the mainstream of the history of philosophy. An analysis (...) demonstrates how, thanks explicitly to Ménage's work, the role of women was now seen as crucial to modern intellectual life'. (Maber, Richard G. (2010). Re-Gendering Intellectual Life: Gilles Ménage and his Histoire des femmes philosophes. Seventeenth-Century French Studies 32(1): 45-60)) (Provenance: On the verso of the front flyleaf: 'Jun 1774, Ambr. Dorhout'. Ambrosius Dorhout, born in the Frisian capital Leeuwarden in 1699, died in Dokkum in 1776. He studied theology and was appointed minister in several small cities. From 1745 he was active in Dokkum.

        Le Monde de Mr Descartes, ou le Traité de la Lumière, et autres principaux objets des Sens. Avec un Discours de l'Action des Corps, & un autre des Fièvres, composés selon les principes du même Auteur.

      - Paris, Jacques Le Gras, 1664. In-8, plein veau moucheté de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné de compartiments fleuronnés et cloisonnés, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches jaspées, (1) f. de titre, (14) p., 260 p., 31 p. pour le "Discours sur le mouvement local", 30 p. pour le "Discours sur la Fièvre", (1) f. blanc, 25 illustrations sur bois dans le texte et 5 à pleine page. Edition originale posthume, partagée entre T. Girard, M. Bobin & N. Le Gras et Jacques Le Gras. Descartes consigna, dans cet essai, le fruit de l'élaboration de sa physique et de sa cosmologie, en prenant acte du modèle copernicien héliocentrique de l'univers. Alors qu'il était en passe d'achever son traité en novembre 1633, il apprit que Galilée venait d'être condamné. Par prudence, il renonça à publier l'ouvrage de son vivant, même s'il prit soin de déposer l'indication de son plan et de ses fondements méthodologiques dans la cinquième partie du 'Discours de la méthode'. Le livre ne fut finalement édité qu'après sa mort, par son ami et disciple Claude Clerselier. (Tchemerzine- Scheler, II, 801. Guibert, 209-213. Norman, 629). Petite réparation à la marge extérieure du titre sans perte de texte et petit défaut de papier p. 131-132. Petite signature ex-libris : "Coguel, 1741".

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).

         De cierlycke voorsnydinge aller tafel-gerechten; onderwijsende hoe allerhande spijzen, zo wel op de vork als zonder dezelve, aardiglik konnen voorgesneden, en in bequame ordre omgedient worden. Amsterdam, Hieronymus Sweerts, 1664 [reissued ca. 1668]. Oblong small 8vo (9.5 x 15.5). With engraved frontispiece, 1 large folding engraved plate of utensils and 31 engraved plates showing the foods with cuts marked. 19th-century gold-tooled dark green morocco. In a slipcase. .

      Bibliotheca Gastronomica 6508 (4 copies); Bitting p. 530; Landwehr, Ned. Kookboek, 17.2 (this issue) & 17 (1664 issue); STCN (4 copies). Rare first edition of a charming little book on carving at the table, describing and illustrating the more refined ways of carving, the order of serving, and the handling of food: poultry, hare, rabbit, pork, veal, lamb, mutton, venison, ham, lobster, fish, artichokes, cakes and sweet and savoury pies. It is one of the best and most extensively illustrated early books on culinary carving. The frontispiece shows a gentleman at dinner, with his servant carving a fowl in the Italian manner, where one holds it aloft with the fork and carves it in mid-air for all to see. The anonymous author, in the preface, notes that this is not the normal manner in the Netherlands, so he discusses both it and the normal manner of carving on a platter. The plates illustrate several carving techniques and include a large folding plate with forks and carving knifes. The book appeared 13 years before Joseph Moxon's better known deck of cards with illustrated carving instructions.With early owner's initials. With a tear in the folding plate repaired but otherwise in very good condition, with only an occasional minor stain or smudge. The slipcase is somewhat rubbed, but the binding itself is in fine condition. A rare and charming handbook of culinary carving, clearly and extensively illustrated..

        Memoires ou oeconomies royales d?estat, domestiques, politiques et militaires de Henry le Grand.1. und 2.Teil (in 1 Band, so vollständig). Mit einem wiederholten allegorischen Titelholzschnitt.

      Paris: chez Lovis Billaine 1664. Titelei, 5 Blatt, 587 Seiten; Titelei, 3 Bl., 623 S. Leder der Zeit mit ornamentaler Rückenvergoldung, Folio, 37 x 23 cm. (bestossen, berieben, Bezug mit Fehlstellen, Erster Titel und letztes Blatt eingerissen, Titel mit Ausrissen ohne Textverlust, innen nur wenig gebräunt resp. braunfleckig) Maximilian von Béthune, Herzog von Sully, Baron, dann Marquis von Rosny (geb. 13. Dezember 1560 in Rosny bei Mantes-la-Jolie (Yvelines); gest. 21. Dezember 1641 in Villebon (Eure-et-Loir), 20 km westlich von Chartres) war ein hochrangiger französischer Artillerieoffizier (Großmeister der Artillerie von Frankreich), Minister, Staatsmann, Marschall von Frankreich und Freund Heinrichs IV. Sein vollständiger Name und Titel lautete: Maximilien (Ier) de Béthune, Duc de Sully, Baron de Rosny, Pair de France, Prince Souverain d`Henrichemont et de Boisbelle, Marquis de Nogent-le-Rotrou, Comte de Muret et de Villebon, Vicomte de Meaux. Sully wurde in der reformierten Kirche erzogen und zugleich mit Heinrich von Navarra unterrichtet. Er nahm mit Auszeichnung an den Feldzügen des jungen Königs von Navarra teil und kämpfte bei Coutras (1587) und bei Ivry (1590) mit. Ein strenger Calvinist, stolz und schroff, trat er auch seinem königlichen Freund, besonders seiner Verschwendung und Ausschweifung, wiederholt mit Energie entgegen; doch vereinte beide bald wieder die gemeinsame Liebe zum Vaterland. Deswegen riet er auch 1593 Heinrich zur Annahme des Katholizismus, um den Bürgerkrieg zu beendigen. 1597 an die Spitze der Finanzen gestellt (Conseiller aux Finances), tilgte er eine Staatsschuld von 200 Millionen Livres, erwarb den größten Teil der verschleuderten Domänen zurück, hob eine Menge überflüssiger Ämter auf, ordnete und vereinfachte das Steuerwesen, baute Straßen, führte die Seidenkultur und andere Erwerbszweige ein und begünstigte den Ackerbau; diesen und die Weidewirtschaft (mfrz. pastourage, frz. pâtourage) erklärte er wiederholt als die Brüste, von denen Frankreich ernährt werde («Labourage et pasturage sont les deux mamelles dont la France est alimentée».) Seit 1599 auch als erster Großmeister der Artillerie von Frankreich und Oberaufseher über alle Befestigungen des Landes, stellte er in kurzem die öffentliche Ruhe wieder her, namentlich durch Vernichtung vieler Räuberbanden. Auf Heinrichs Zug nach Savoyen (1600) eroberte Sully die für unüberwindlich gehaltenen Festungen Montmelian und Bourg. Nach dem Frieden übernahm er unter dem Titel eines erblichen Kapitäns der Häfen, Flüsse und Kanäle das Département der öffentlichen Bauten, hob Zölle auf, erklärte den Getreidehandel für frei, legte Kanäle an und leistete in dieser Stellung viel für die Verbesserung der Kommunikationsmittel des Landes. Zugleich leitete er auch die auswärtigen Verhandlungen. 1604 wurde er zum Gouverneur von Poitou und 1606 für sein Schloss Sully an der Loire nebst den dazugehörigen Ländereien zum erblichen Herzog ernannt. Dabei erwarb er für sich selbst ein bedeutendes Vermögen. Nach der Ermordung Heinrichs IV. (14. Mai 1610) wurde er seiner Stellung am Hof entbunden und von diesem auf sein Schloss verwiesen; doch bediente sich auch Ludwig XIII. öfters seines Rats und ernannte ihn 1634 zum Marschall von Frankreich. Sein gleichnamiger Sohn übernahm das Amt des Großmeister der Artillerie von Frankreich, starb aber bereits 1634 mit 46 Jahren. Maximilien de Béthune, Herzog von Sully, starb am 21. Dezember 1641 im Alter von 81 Jahren. Maximilien de Rosny, eine durch den Herzog von Sully inspirierte literarische Figur, verkörpert den (beinahe?) idealen Politiker in Heinrich Manns Roman Die Vollendung des Königs Henri Quatre. (wikipedia). Wichtig für die Geschichte seiner Zeit, obwohl durchaus nicht zuverlässig, sind seine in Stil und Form ungenießbaren \"Mémoires ou Oeconomies royales d`Estat\" (Amsterdam 1634, 2 Bände; 2 Supplementbände 1662). - Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage oder auf unserer Homepage.

      Hamburg: o.V. [Selbstverlag des Autors] 1664; 1667. 3 Bände in 1 Band. Titel, (30), 604 Seiten; Titel, (6), 146 Seiten, (62); Titel, (6), 55, (1 weiße) Seiten. Mit zusätzlichem gestochenem Titelblatt vor [I] von Bartholomé Iselburg, dat. 1663, und etwas Buchschmuck. Kl. 8° (17 x 11,5 cm). 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.

All edges of boards blindstamped. Corners bumped, a small tear to upper front hinge, and a bit of overall wear. An old paper title-label to upper spine.

(16), 120 pp. + (4 - title page anddedication), pp. 1-20, (2, - "Animadversion") pp. + pp. 21-40, (2, -"Sir Paul Neile's second Paper) pp. + pp. 41-50 + (2, - title-page) + pp. 55 (as always) - 83 + (3, -errata & blank versos) pp. With two contemporary owner's inscriptions to title-page: "Jacobus de Randerstons Balfurius" with the addition "now given by Balfour of him to Michaell Horst his brother". 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)

      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.
