        Hortorum libri IV. Cum disputatione de cultura hortensi.

      1665. Paris, Typographia Regia, 1665. 4to. (266 x 198 mm). pp. (xxvi including frontispiece), 219 with engraved frontispiece, engraved vignette with royal arms on title, nine engraved head- and tailpieces, and six engraved initials; a fine, large copy, ruled in red throughout, in contemporary calf, gilt floral panels with centre and corner pieces on sides, gilt spine, upper joint slightly cracked. First edition of Rapin's celebrated poem on gardens, and a fine piece of book design. Rene Rapin (1621-1687), a Jesuit, wrote this work in imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics'. It is divided into four books, on the flower garden, parkland and trees, water, and the orchard. It is followed by a work in prose, a debate between the 'ancients' and 'moderns' on gardening styles, in which Rapin endorses the 'modern' style. This work enjoyed immense renown, and was translated into English by John Evelyn. "On the threshold of this period the French garden found its earliest poets. Rene Rapin, the learned Jesuit who wrote so many books, published in 1665 a poem called 'Hortorum libri quattuor'. This was in undisguised imitation of Virgil's 'Georgics', but aimed at giving a supplement on the province of the garden, which the Roman poet had neglected. Rapin had already seen something of the development of gardens in the grand siecle, and this appears in much of what he wrote; but he chiefly concerns himself with the gardens of the time of Maria de Medici and Henry IV. All that he writes in his first book, 'The flower garden', is what is demanded by the usual theorists; and about flowers he only gives pretty myths in the style of Ovid. But in the second book he is inspired with new ideas, the exhaustive treatment of the park (nemus): he says that when you step out of the garden the park must at once appear as a stage formally arranged. The trees must be in the form of the quincunx, with straight lines and right angles, although he also likes slanting lines and circular arches in some places. All the paths have to be provided with fine sand or closely mown grass, and at the sides the beeches or cypresses have to be clipped so as to make straight walls, but the lighter branches may be worked into a thousand shapes and mazes of any kind. He is full of praise for the oak as a good forest tree, and he is emphatically opposed to the clipping of oaks, using all his rhetoric and calling down all mythological punishments upon the heads of the desecrators of trees. This care for the park and its cultivation is by no means unfamiliar in Renaissance times, but the close connection of its main design with that of the garden points to a period which is still to come. In the same way the third book, which treats of water, adhering to all the fantastic ideas of the Renaissance, rejoicing in every one of the innumerable water-devices, and demanding a great extension and development of cascades, does try most energetically to enforce strict regularity in the domain of water. It is admitted that tricks of teasing waters in grottoes, and pumice and shells for decoration, are all wonderful attractions for the people on festival days; but anyone who is sensible, large-minded and thoughtful is fond of great sheets of water, and canals like rivers: it is to sing of these that his lyre shall be strung" (Marie Louise Gothein, History of garden art pp. 431-2).

Title pages in red and black, woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning, occasional foxing, internally clean. A handsome set. * First edition. The Codex Theodosianus is an official compilation of all laws enacted since the reign of Constantine that was commissioned by Emperor Theodosius II in 429 CE. Completed in 438 CE, and ratified that year by the senate, it was the standard legal text of the empire, one that superseded all earlier codes. It would later exert enormous influence on the barbarians who assumed control of the Western Empire. The Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Franks, Lombards and Burgundians used it as the basis for their legal codes. Godefroy's edition, which includes extensive commentary, was the first modern edition of the Codex. It remains a masterpiece of scholarship and erudition. This edition also contains additional notes by Antoine Marville. Graesse, Tresor de Livres Rares et Precieux 209. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 21:980..

        The travels of Sig. Pietro della Valle, a Noble Roman, into East-India and Arabia Deserta.

      London, J. Macock for Henry Herringman, 1665.. Folio. (8), 480 pp. With several woodcut plans in the text (wants the engraved map and plates). Contemp. calf, rebacked over 5 raised bands.. First English edition of Pietro della Valle's travel report, 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 - http://www.uaeinteract.com/history/e_walk/con_3/con3_48.asp). Pietro della Valle's travels continued 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 consisting of 54 letters written to the Neapolitan physician Mario Schipano was published in four parts from 1650 to 1663. Of the present first English edition, prepared by George Havers and Thomas Roe (who added his Voyage to East India), there are three different imprints in 1665: for J. Martin and J. Allestry, for John Place, and, as in the present copy, for Henry Herringman. - First pages slightly wormed, some waterstaining near end. Occasional edge defects and fingerstaining, otherwise a good copy. From the library of Edward Davenport with his armoiral bookplate on pastedown. - Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula, 2233.

        La Chyromantie naturelle de Ronphyle.

      Paris, Jean-Baptiste Loyson, 1665.. In-12, demi-chagrin rouge a coins, dos a 4 faux-nerfs orne d'un petit fer entre-nerfs, filets dores sur les plats, tranches dorees (rel. debut XXe), 78 p., 6 planches a pleine page. Edition illustree de 6 planches gravees a peine page en taille douce, comprises dans la pagination. L'un des ouvrages "classique" de chiromancie, selon Caillet : "l'un des meilleurs traites de chiromancie qui existent, orne de nombreuses figures finement gravees - les rapports de l'astrologie avec les temperaments y sont longuement etudies et permettent d'obtenir des resultats plus surs qu'avec les autres methodes". "Ronphile" est le pseudonyme de Rampalle, veritable auteur et non traducteur - comme indique au privilege - de la 'Chyromantie'. Il s'agit probablement de Jean Antoine Rampalle, ne a l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, carme dechausse, nomme Pierre de Saint-Andre en religion. (Caillet, 9577. Dorbon, 4223). Bon exemplaire..

He wrote several works on natural history and was member of the Academia Naturae Curiosorum. 'Through his influence there was obtained for the Society, 5 Aug. 1677, the Imperial patronage of Leopold I, and in 1687 the full title of the Imperial Leopoldine Academy was conferred upon it, along with a number of privileges' (Ferguson II, p. 311).

Wegen der außerordentlich komplizierten Kollation ist auf Anfrage eine Kollation nach der Bogennorm erhältlich. Werner Rolfinck (1599-1673), "studierte seit 1616 die Artes, dann Medizin in Wittenberg und Leiden, unternahm Studienreisen nach England, Frankreich und Italien und wurde 1625 in Padua als Schüler Adriaan van den Spieghels promoviert. 1628 kehrte er nach Wittenberg zurück und erhielt den Lehrstuhl für Anatomie . 1629 wurde R. Prof. der Anatomie, Chiurgie und Botanik sowie Direktor des Botanischen Gartens in Jena, wo er 1641 auch die Professur für Chemie übernahm. Er machte sich um die Universität Jena durch die Gründung eines chemischen Laboratoriums und eines anatomischen Theaters verdient" (Engelhardt II, 506). Er war auch der erste deutsche Anatom, der in der Vorlesung an Leichen demonstrierte. Durch ihn wurde der Ausdruck "Rolfincken" für den Leichendiebstahl zum Zwecke des Zergliederns volkstümlich. "Rolfinck was the first German to accept Harvey's theory of the circulation of the blood, which he taught in 1632 with such enthusiasm that he compared Harvey to Columbus. He collected surgical instruments, made a personal contribution to ophthalmology (he was the first to demonstrate the location of cataracts in the lense of the eye), and is credited with revolutionizing medicine at Jena" (DSB II, 511). - Angebunden II: Erste Ausgabe. - VD17 3:300069W. - Beide Werke sehr gut erhalten und nahezu fleckenfrei.

Schöner Lemberger Evangeliendruck; eines der letzten Werke aus der Presse des Michael Slioska (aktiv 1639-67) und eine der vollendetsten Evangelienausgaben, die im 17. Jahrhundert in der Ukraine gedruckt wurden. Besticht durch seine kleinteiligen Illustrationen, zumeist Werke des russischen Mönchs und Holzschneiders Ilija (Anagnostes oder Angilejko; vgl. Thieme/B. 18, 567): zu nennen sind die achtteilige Titelbordüre, die eine Auferstehung in sechs Einzelszenen am Titel verso (von einer ornamentalen Bordüre eingefaßt), vor den Evangelien und der Apokalypse jeweils ein Evangelistenportrait (zum Teil mit Szenen aus deren Leben). Aber auch die Kopfstücke sind von Interesse, sind doch hier u. a. auch historische Persönlichkeiten wie etwa Kaiser Theophilos (vor dem Lukas-Evangelium) dargestellt. Die Evangelientexte selbst sind sparsam, aber ansprechend illustriert: von besonderem Reiz ist die dreiteilige Folge zum Verlorenen Sohn, die desselben Fortgang, Elend und Heimkehr schildern. Die Illustrationen aufgrund der aus früheren Drucken wiederverwendeten Druckstöcke (die frühesten mit 1639 datiert) zum Teil minimal flau, zumeist jedoch kräftig im Abdruck.

        Historia Eustachio-Mariana

      Engraved frontis., woodcut device on title, 6 engraved plates (five folding), two large folding printed genealogical tables, & 5 engravings (one full-page) in the text. 6 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 184, [10] pp., one leaf of errata. 4to, cont. vellum over boards (some foxing as is always the case with this book). Rome: Varese, 1665. First edition of one of Kircher&#39;s scarcest books. In 1661, Kircher "retired to Tybur to restore his waning strength and to gather geographic and historical information for his Latium. Setting out through the neighboring hills one day, he came upon an ancient church. An inscription near the crumbling altar declared that the shrine was erected by Constantine where Saint Eustachius saw a vision of the crucified Christ between a stag&#39;s antlers and was converted. Saint Eustachius is alleged to have been a Roman general of the first century A.D., who, after being thus converted while hunting, refused to sacrifice to pagan gods during the persecutions under Hadrian in A.D. 118. He was subsequently burned inside a brazen bull... "Naturally this discovery piqued Kircher&#39;s curiosity, and upon inquiring of the local peasants, he learned that the chapel had been called the Shrine of Our Lady of Mentorella and was a well-known place of pilgrimage in antiquity. Kircher remembered the many perils he had escaped with the Virgin&#39;s aid and was determined to restore the shrine to her honor. When he returned to Rome, he wrote...Historia eustachio-mariana (1665), on the history and sanctity of the shrine and sent copies to his patrons. Soon donations began to pour in, and the chapel was restored to its ancient splendor and status as a place of pilgrimage. Every year thereafter at Michaelmas (29 September), Kircher and other Jesuits welcomed pilgrims to the shrine."-Merrill, Athanasius Kircher, p. xxvi-(& it is interesting to note that the catalogue does not describe a copy). Very good copy. First two leaves with a little marginal dampstaining. &#10087; De Backer-Sommervogel IV, 1063-"Il est très rare." .

        Mikroskopische Untersuchungen über die Uebereinstimmung in der Struktur und dem Wachstum der Thiere und Pflanzen.Berlin: Verlag der Sander'schen Buchhandlung (G. E. Reimer), 1839. First edition.

      An exceptionally fine copy of the foundation work of the cell theory for plants and animals, and one of the classic titles in the history of biology. "The cell theory ranks with the evolution theory in the far-reaching influence it has exerted on the growth of modern biology." (Evans, <i>First editions of Epochal Achievements in the History of Science</i>, p. 44). This work "was a keystone of modern biology and, with its advent, the biological sciences began a period of rapid ascendancy" (<i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i>).<br/><br/> &#10087;Dibner 197, Evans 106; PMM 307b, Horblit 93a; Sparrow/Milestones 178; Grolier/Medicine 62; Meyer Friedman Sale 159.<br/><br/> "In 1665 Robert Hooke, in his <i>Micrographia</i>, observed the cellular nature of plant construction and coined the word 'cell.' Nehemiah Grew and Marcello Malpighi in the following decade also observed the cellular construction of parts of plants and formulated a rough hypothesis of a cellular theory of plant life. In 1831 Robert Brown described the nucleus as the essential characteristic of the plant cell, and in 1838 Matthias Schleiden, in his own study of vegetable cells, became the first to construct a theory of cell formation and to present the concept that a living body-in this case a plant-was made up of an aggregate of cells and cell products. After Schleiden pointed out to Theodor Schwann the importance of the nucleus in the development of plant cells, Schwann demonstrated the existence of cellular structures in animal tissue. At this point Schwann discarded Schleiden's erroneous <i>Uhrglastheorie</i> of cell formation, which had postulated that cells crystallize in a formative liquid, and formulated a cell theory that insisted on the cellular origin of all living tissue. His theory of the actual formation of cells was erroneous and was later corrected by Rudolf Virchow, but he had succeeded in establishing that the cell was the universal unit of life throughout the animal and vegetable kingdoms, thus ending the search for a common structural principle of live organisms.<br/><br/> "<i>Mikroskopische Untersuchungen</i> is divided into three parts. The first is devoted to a microscopic study of the <i>chorda dorsalis</i> of frog larvae, in which Schwann developed his theory of cell formation. In the second part he applied the notion he had just promulgated to the individual animal tissue, be it muscle or bone, feather or fat. He found that all these are the product of cellular differentiation, and that although quite different physiologically, they are in their most elementary state only developments of cells. Schwann also coined the term 'metabolism' in the course of his attempt to define the physicochemical processes of cellular differentiation. The third part of <i>Mikroskopische Untersuchungen</i> is a philosophical discussion of Schwann's cell theory as expounded in the first two parts. The book was published in English translation in 1847." (Nigel Phillips in <i>One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine, pp. 227-229</i>).. 8vo (198 x 119 mm), pp. [i-iii] iv-xviii, [1] 2-270 and 4 folding engraved plates by C. E.

        Il Decameron di Messer Giovanni Boccaccio cittadino Fiorentino sii come lo diedero alle stampe i Signori Giunti nell ?anno 1527.

      Elzevier 1665 - Amsterdam, Elzevier, 1665. 2 vol. in 16 de 744pp., (4l2pp.) (332pp.) (pagination continue), reliures en plein maroquin rouge cerise de la fin du XVIIIème siècle, dos lisses délicatement decorés de quatre caissons dorés tres finement ornés de motifs floraux, séparés par des triples filets, triple filet d'encadrement dorés sur les plats, dentelle dorée sur les marges intérieures des contreplats, de très légères usures habituelles, sans gravité, réparations de papier en bas des feuillets 529-530 et 531-532, tranches dorées, intérieur frais, très bien conservé, bel exemplaire. Cette édition est peu courante en deux volumes, moins diffuse que les autres éditions Elzevier en un volume. Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-1375), après des études de Droit canonique à Paris, rejoignit la cour d'Anjou du Roi Robert de Naples. Il vécut ensuite à Florence où il se lia d'une profonde amitié à Petrarque. En 1348, durant la peste qui frappa la ville de Florence, trois jeunes hommes et sept jeunes femmes se réunirent dans l'Eglise de Santa Maria Novella et décidèrent de s'isoler dans une villa lointaine afin d'échapper à la peste. Dans ces lieux, afin de ne pas repenser aux horreurs vues, les jeunes gens vont se raconter des contes durant quatorze jours, sauf les vendredis et samedis.Le titre ''Decameron'' vient de ces dix journées, l'oeuvre comportant 100 récits de longueurs différentes. Boccace est aussi l'auteur de: ''La caccia di Diana'' (1334), ''Filostrato'' (1335), ''Teseida'' (1337), ''Amorosa visione'' (1340), ''Comedia delle ninfe fiorentine'' (1341), ''Elegia di Madonna Fiammetta'' (1343/1344), ''Ninfale fiesolano'' (1344/1346), ''Corbaccio'' (1354), ''De claris mulieribus'' (1361/1362).

      apud Ludovicum & Danielem Elzevirios [apud Danielem Elzevirium] 1665 - Amsterdam, apud Ludovicum & Danielem Elzevirios [apud Danielem Elzevirium], 1665 [1664]. 3 vol. in 8 de [XLVIII]-820-[LXXVI]pp., 842-[LXX]pp., 997-[XCI]pp., reliures en plein vélin rigide de l'époque, titre manuscrit à l'encre noire sur les dos, petites traces de salissures ou de gras, parfois des noirceurs, plats larges à grands rabats qui recouvrent une partie des tranches, annotations de l'époque à l'encre noire dans les marges, quelques soulignements à l'encre noire légèrement passée sans gravité pour la lecture, intérieur frais, bon et bel exemplaire. Cette seconde édition dans sa troisième impression, établie par J. F. Gronovius (1611-1671) marque une étape décisive dans l'approche et la compréhension du grand historien latin, cette édition sera la dernière proposée par Grovonius de son vivant, son fils Jacob, professeur des classiques tout comme lui, proposera une nouvelle édition, à la fin des années 1670. De l'oeuvre de Tite Live (Padoue 59 avant Jésus Christ - 17 après Jésus Christ), ''Ab urbe Condita"; Histoire de Rome depuis sa fondation, seuls 35 livres sur les 142 écrits (150 étaient prévus) nous sont parvenus. Les livres qui nous sont restés concernent l'histoire des premiers siècles de Rome depuis sa fondation jusqu'en 292 avant J. C., l'oeuvre se décomposant ainsi: le livre I incluant la période royale allant de 753 à 509 avant J. C. avec l'arrivée d'Enée, la dynastie Albaine, les règnes de Romulus, Buma, Pompilius, Tullus Hostillus, Ancus Marcius, Tarquin l'ancien, Servius Tullius, Tarquin le superbe ainsi que son renversement. Les livres II-V couvrent les premiers siècles de la République (509-390 avant J. C.) avec la lutte contre les Tarquins, les deux Décemvirats, la paix de Veies, l'invasion gauloise de 390 et les exploits de Camille. Les livres XXI-XLV couvrent le récit de la deuxième guerre punique et de la conquête par les armées romaines de la Gaule Cisalpine, de la Grèce, de la Macédoine et d'une partie de l'Asie mineure. Le dernier événement important relaté est le triomphe de Paul Emile à Pydna en 168 avant Jésus Christ. Les livres VI à X concernent la conquête de l'Italie (390-292 avant J. C.) avec les guerres samnites, les livres XXI-XXX traitent de la deuxième guerre punique de 218 à 202 avant Jésus Christ, les livres XXXI-XL de la deuxième guerre macédonienne et de la lutte contre Antiochos III (201 -179 avant J. C.), enfin les livres XLI-XLV terminent l'oeuvre disponible par la troisième guerre macédonienne (178-167 avant Jésus Christ). Tite Live fut très proche de l'Empereur Auguste, pour celui-ci, bien que connaissant les sympathies républicaines de cet auteur, l'ouvrage pouvait servir son pouvoir et le glorifier. En effet, le livre élève non seulement un monument à la gloire de Rome mais souligne surtout l'ancienneté et la continuité sans faille de l'histoire de la ville. Selon Tite Live, l'Histoire n'est pas objective: elle idéalise les grands hommes et reste pleine de prévention à l'égard des démocrates. Tite Live ne possède pas la méthode scientifique de Thucydide ou de Polybe. Cette ''Histoire de Rome" est aussi un ouvrage de dialectique et de morale et contient la première uchronie connue.

        Paradise Regain&#39;d, A Poem... To which is added Samson Agonistes. [Paradise Regained]

      London: by J.M. for John Starkey. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of Paradise Regained, with the first edition of Samson Agonistes (as issued); in beautiful Riviere and Son binding. "In August 1665 Milton had shown the unpublished manuscript of Paradise Lost to Thomas Ellwood, who read it and told Milton that &#39;thou hast said much here of Paradise Lost, but what hast thou to say of Paradise Found?&#39; (Masson, 6.496). In the following year Ellwood visited Milton in London, and Milton showed him the manuscript of Paradise Regained, graciously telling Ellwood that &#39;this is owing to you; for you put it into my head by the question you put to me at Chalfont&#39; (ibid., 6.654). It is possible that Paradise Regained, which depicts the temptations of Jesus in the desert, owes its pacific tone to the influence of the values of the Quaker community at Chalfont St Giles. The Jesus of Paradise Regained is not a warrior like the Son in book 6 of Paradise Lost, but rather a man who outwits his opponent&hellip;" (Dictionary of National Biography). This first edition of Paradise Regained includes the first edition of Milton&#39;s classic tragic drama Samson Agonistes, as issued. First issue: With "loah" for "loth" on F2 (p. 67). Complete with license leaf and errata. London: by J.M. for John Starkey, 1671. Octavo (173x106mm), nineteenth century full crimson crushed morocco by Riviere and Son with elaborate gilt tooling on boards; rebacked with original spine laid down. Decorative engraved bookplate of Florence de Wolfe Sampson. One neat early ink marginal note; text very clean with only occasional spots of soiling. A little closely cropped.

        Pascaarte van Engelant Van 't Voorlant tot aen Blakeney waer in te sien is de mont vende Teemse [with] River van Londen

      Amsterdam, 1665-66. unbound. Map. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 17.5 x 21.5". This sea chart depicts the British Isles with North oriented to the right. The map extends to include the English Chanel and coastline of Normandy. In addition to ports, the index also includes soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. Each region is adorned with a decorative coat of arms, and embellished compass roses appear at the top and bottom of the map. This map was published in Goos' "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with slight foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Pieter Goos (1616-1675) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa, and his "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a fine example of Goos' high quality, visually appealing sea charts.

        Flagellum: Or The Life and Death Birth and Burial of O. Cromwell The late Usurper: Faithfully Described. With An Exact Account of His Polices and Successes: Not heretofore Published or Discovered. The Third Edition with Additions

      London, Printed by W. G. for Randall Taylor..., 1665. Small 8vo, 155 x 103 mms., pp. [viii], 200, engraved portrait frontispiece, title-page in red and black, 19th century continental boards. An inscription on the recto of the frontispiece is barely legible, with an inscription at the top of the page that is virtually unreadable; the lines below seem to read: "[?dnt] to from Mr. Hume/ [d--] to [?me ?mr} from David Hu[me]." Below that is a sum, either "12 - 6" or "2 - 6," the first number having been crossed out and "2" inscribed above. The inscription is very unlikely alluding to or by the philosopher David Hume, but was perhaps given to the previous owner by Hume&#39;s nephew, though the handwriting appears to be much earlier. Heath&#39;s book was first published in 1663, and there were a further seven editions. As it happens, David Hume did write to Sir David Dalrymple, on 3 April 1754: "There is a Book, calld Flagellum or the Life of Oliver Cromwell, which I have commission&#39;d for the [Advocates&#39;} Library; but as it is a very scarce Book, & these Commissions are not soon answer&#39;d, I may wait long before I get it. I know you have a very large Library; & if that Book be in it, I shall be very much obligd to you for a Loan of it; that being now the Period, which I have begun upon [i. e., in writing his History of England]." The present copy is unlikely to be the one formerly in Sir David&#39;s library, and the handwriting is not either. When his books were auctioned by Sotheby&#39;s in 1937, no copy of Flagellum was listed, though it might have been in a job lot. However, Dalrymple was very proud of his library and would probably not have defaced the book with the existing notations. In short, this copy is very unlikely to have any tangible connection either with David Hume or Sir David Dalrymple

        Ordo et methodus medicinae specialis commentariorae hos en genei (graece), ad normam veterum & novorum dogmatum proposita.

      4°. (18 Bl.), ca. 1069 S., (22 Bl.). Pergamentband der Zeit (Rückdeckel fleckig). Erste Ausgabe. - Krivatsy 9831; Hirsch/H. IV, 861; VD17 39:145823Y. - Eines der Hauptwerke des bedeutenden Anatomen. Wegen der außerordentlich komplizierten Kollation ist auf Anfrage eine Kollation nach der Bogennorm erhältlich. Werner Rolfinck (1599-1673), "studierte seit 1616 die Artes, dann Medizin in Wittenberg und Leiden, unternahm Studienreisen nach England, Frankreich und Italien und wurde 1625 in Padua als Schüler Adriaan van den Spieghels promoviert. 1628 kehrte er nach Wittenberg zurück und erhielt den Lehrstuhl für Anatomie . 1629 wurde R. Prof. der Anatomie, Chiurgie und Botanik sowie Direktor des Botanischen Gartens in Jena, wo er 1641 auch die Professur für Chemie übernahm. Er machte sich um die Universität Jena durch die Gründung eines chemischen Laboratoriums und eines anatomischen Theaters verdient" (Engelhardt II, 506). Er war auch der erste deutsche Anatom, der in der Vorlesung an Leichen demonstrierte. Durch ihn wurde der Ausdruck "Rolfincken" für den Leichendiebstahl zum Zwecke des Zergliederns volkstümlich. "Rolfinck was the first German to accept Harvey's theory of the circulation of the blood, which he taught in 1632 with such enthusiasm that he compared Harvey to Columbus. He collected surgical instruments, made a personal contribution to ophthalmology (he was the first to demonstrate the location of cataracts in the lense of the eye), and is credited with revolutionizing medicine at Jena" (DSB II, 511). - Angebunden: Hoffmann, Friedrich: Opus de methodo medendi, juxta seriem Wallaeianam, annexis fundamentis astrologicis, ex veterum ac recentiorum scriptis concinnatum, dogmaticis, Paracelsicis, Helmontianis, Harveianis principiis & propriis oberservationibus illustratum... cum praefatione magni istius Johannis Michelis.

Das letzte Registerblatt des angebundenen Werkes im Längsrand etwas ungeschickt verstärkt.

        Pascaarte van Engelant Van &#39;t Voorlant tot aen Blakeney waer in te sien is de mont vende Teemse [with] River van Londen

      Amsterdam, 1665-66. unbound. Map. Uncolored copperplate engraving. Image measures 17.5 x 21.5". This sea chart depicts the British Isles with North oriented to the right. The map extends to include the English Chanel and coastline of Normandy. In addition to ports, the index also includes soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. Each region is adorned with a decorative coat of arms, and embellished compass roses appear at the top and bottom of the map. This map was published in Goos&#39; "De Zee-Atlas Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos&#39; intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with slight foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Pieter Goos (1616-1675) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa, and his "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a fine example of Goos&#39; high quality, visually appealing sea charts.
