        Renati Rapini (.) Hortorum libri IV. Cum Disputatione de cultura hortensi. (ENVOI DE L'AUTEUR A PIERRE THOMAS DU FOSSE).

      - Parisiis, Sebastiano Cramoisy, 1665. In-4, plein veau fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné de compartiments richement fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches rouges, (1) f. de titre, (22), 219 p., 3 culs-de-lampe, 7 lettrines et 6 vignettes d'en-tête en taille douce. Edition originale de ce fameux poème en quatre chants sur les jardins, les fleurs, les arbres, les fruits, les agréments aquatiques et les techniques de culture. Il contient, à partir de la page 133, un poème sur les hortensias. De nombreuses notes imprimées en marge contiennent des références aux auteurs anciens. L’index fournit les noms latins et leur traduction en français. Par la qualité du latin et du style, le poème fut comparé à Virgile, et l'on considéra le père Rapin comme l'un des plus beaux esprits de son temps. L’ouvrage rencontra un succès extraordinaire. Clément IX en dit: "Il me paraît que par un chant magique tu nous as apporté toutes les fleurs du Parnasse encore plus belles. Elles respirent tout à fait la majesté et l'élégance virgiliennes ". (De Backer, Sommervogel V, 1446; Hunt, ‘Botanical Catalogue’, I, 324. Pritzel, n°8354. Selon Brunet, IV, 111: "Un chef-d'oeuvre d'élégance et de composition ingénieuse."). Envoi de l’auteur sur la première garde blanche à Pierre Thomas du Fossé ("A Mr. du Fossé "). L’envoi est suivi d’un long commentaire manuscrit élogieux à propos de ce poème: "Hoc opus Virgilio dignum ". Elevé par les solitaires de Port-Royal, Thomas du Fossé (1634-1698) resta toute sa vie fidèle au jansénisme. Distingué par son style, il a collaboré à la Bible de Sacy. Rencontre improbable entre le jésuite René Rapin, théoricien du "sublime" mais aussi auteur de plusieurs ouvrages violement critiques contre le jansénisme qui firent grand bruit, et Pierre Thomas du Fossé, l'un des plus emblématiques représentants de Port-Royal. Quelques infimes accrocs à la reliure. Le frontispice manque. Bel exemplaire, très frais. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Le journal des sçavans de l'an 1665 [& 1666], par le sieur de Hedouville. Amsterdam, Pierre le Grand [D. Elzevier], 1679. [French title: Le journal des scavans, tome premier, ou sont continues les annees 1665 & 1666]

      FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST VOLUME OF THE AMSTERDAM EDITION OF THE JOURNAL DES SÇAVANS FOR THE YEARS 1665 & 1666. The full content can be viewed at the Gallica web portal. Robert Hooke's magnificent and revolutionary Micrographia also appeared in 1665 and the second half of this volume, the 1666 half, reproduces as a fold-out copperplate engraving Hooke's wonderous drawing of the underside of a flea as seen through a microscope. Twelve pages of text are also devoted to Micrographia, a work Samuel Pepys called the most ingenious he had ever read. "On January 5, 1665 French writer Denis de Sallo , Sieur de la Coudraye (pseudonym Sieur d'Hédonville) published from Paris the first issue of the first French literary and scientific journal, Journal des sçavans . This was also the earliest scientific journal published in Europe, predating Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London by three months" (Norman, History of Information). "The journal ceased publication in 1792, during the French Revolution, and although it very briefly reappeared in 1797 under the updated title Journal des savants, it did not re-commence regular publication until 1816. From then on, the Journal des savants became more of a literary journal, and ceased to carry significant scientific material" (Wikipedia). CONDITION & DETAILS: Amsterdam: Pierre le Grand. [6], 780, [18]. In-text and fold-out copperplates. Complete. Handsomely bound in full-calf with five raised bands, gilt-ruled at the spine; gilt-tooled in compartments. Tight and very solid. Minor toning throughout. Very good condition.

        REAL GRANDEZA DE LA SERENISSIMA REPUBLICA DE GENOVA. Escrita en lengua Espanola por D. Luis de Gongora, y despues anadida y traducida en lengua Italiana por Carlos Esperon....

      Madrid / Genova, por Ios. Fern. de Buendia / Gio. Batt. Tibaldi, 1665-1669. In-4 (mm. 314x216), p. pelle coeva (abrasioni e fori di tarlo), dorso a cordoni con fregi e tit. oro su tassello, tagli marmorizzati, pp. (16),351, con una bella antiporta allegorica inc. in rame da M.

Sperone e Gongora sono la stessa persona. L'opera è così suddivisa: “Real grandezza della Serenissima Repubblica di Genova per lo splendore della sua origine, della sua fondazione e della sua antichità nella religione cattolica - Per avere i suoi figliogli contratto varie volte parentela con re e imperatori, conservandosi hoggidì il loro sangue nelle vene de' maggiori principi d'Europa - Per essere Signora del regno della Liguria e del mare ligustico - Per lo regno di Corsica, che possiede - Per la conquista del regno di Sardegna dalle mani de' Saracini - Per lo regno di Cipro che conquistò e fece tributario per cent'anni; per lo regno di Candia che potrebbe pretendere e per lo regno di Gerusalemme, sopra del quale per più titoli ha ragione - Per la conquista dell'imperio di Trabisonda, delle città del Mar Maggiore, dell'Asia Minore, della Grecia e delle sue isole - Per le sue imprese ed eroiche azioni in tutto il mondo.. - Per i titoli e per gli honori a essa contribuiti da' maggiori signori del mondo - Per haver procurato sempre la conservazione della fede cattolica e la esaltazione della Santa Chiesa Romana”. Rara "edizione originale" di questa importante opera di Sperone “nobile genovese, Cappellano Maggiore della regia Cappella della Serenissima Repubblica di Genova, Protonotario Apostolico, Dottore in sacra teologia e in legge canonica e civile”. Cfr. Palau,III, p. 306: “El autor se llama en realidad Carlo Sperone, y el mismo declara que ocultò su nombre bajo al anagrama, al publicar su "Memorial", en Madrid, 1665” - Coleti,I,45: “L'autore difende il titolo regio della Repubblica”. Fresco esemplare ben conservato. .

        KIRCHER ATHANASIUS. Mundus subterraneus, In XII libros digestos; quo divinum subterrestris mundi opificium,...universae denique naturae majestas & divitiae summa rerum varietate exponuntur...

      Apud Joannem Janssonium & Elizeum Weyerstraten, 1665. Due volumi rilegati in uno; in Folio (mm 382x230); Vol. I: carte non num. 13 (su 15, mancano il frontespizio allegorico inciso e la carta col privilegio) compreso il frontespizio a stampa, pagg. 346, (6) con 12 grandi tavole fuori testo, 3 piccole tavole fuori testo e 2 tavole sinottiche; Vol. II: carte non num. 5 (su 6, manca il frontespizio del secondo tomo), pagg. 487, (9) con 7 tavole f.t., 2 piccole tavole f.t. e 5 tavole sinottiche. Complessivamente l'opera contiene 19 grandi tavole fuori testo incise in rame, molte ripiegate, fra cui 7 carte geografiche con il mappamondo con le correnti marine ed altre con raffigurazioni di sole, luna, vulcani (Etna, Vesuvio); 5 piccole tavole tecniche, sempre in rame; 7 tavole sinottiche, oltre a decine di illustrazioni in rame (alcune a tutta pagina) e oltre 200 silogr. nel testo, che illustrano animali, mostri, diagrammi astronomici, fossili, macchine, forni alchemici ed altro. Mancano i ritratti di Kircher e di Papa Alessandro VII. Piena pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Prima edizione di questa celebre e curiosa opera del gesuita Kircher (Caillet 5783: "La plus curieux des ouvrages. Ce monde subterrain est...un monde kabbalistique en raison des etres fantastiques dont il peuple l'interieure du globe"), consacrata alla terra ed alle scienze che la riguardano. Divisa in 13 libri tratta di geologia, idrografia, meteorologia, vulcanologia, storia naturale, alchimia, che viene condannata ridicolizzando Paracelso, fossili, metallurgia. Kircher è convinto che il centro della terra sia collegato alla crosta in molti punti e che contenga vaste riserve di acqua; il risultato dell'interazione di questi elementi producono terremoti, vulcani, tempeste.Ottimo esemplare mancante dei due ritratti di Kircher e del Papa Alessandro VII e dei due frontespizi allegorici. Qualche difetto alla legatura.Merrill, 17: "The Mundus subterraneus, perhaps the most popular of Kircher's works in his day and the best known in ours...The basis and impetus...was Kircher's visit to Sicily in 1637-38, where he witnessed an eruption of Aetna and Stromboli. He prefaced the work with his own narrative of the trip, including his spectacular descent into Vesuvius upon his return to Italy...But the work is not solely geologic. Kircher continues with fantastic speculations about the interior of the earth, its hidden lakes, its rivers of fire, and its strange inhabitants. Major topics include gravity, the moon, the sun, eclipses, ocean currents, subterranean waters and fires, meteorology, rivers and lakes, hydraulics, minerals and fossils, subterranean giants, beasts and demons, poisons, metallurgy and mining, alchemy, the universal seed and generation of insects, herbs, astrological medicine, distillation, and fireworks, In this work he discloses his experience with palingenesis...Much of the work deals with alchemy..."

Duveen 322; Caillet 5783; Ferguson I, 467; Graesse IV, 21; Graesse, Magica, 49; Sabin 37967 "Several articles relate to America"; Sommervogel IV, 1060; Wellcome III, 395. Two volumes in 2° bound in one (mm 382x230); Vol. I: 13 not numbered leaves (out of 15, missing allegorical titlepage and Privilegium), pagg. 346, (6) with 12 engraved plates, 3 small plates and 2 synoptic tables; Vol. II: plates non num. 5 (out of 6, missing titlepage), pagg. 487, (9) with 7 plates., 2 small plates. and 5 synoptical plates. All together the book contains 19 large engraved plates out of text, many folded; 5 small technical plates; 7 synoptical plates, beyond about 60 other plates engraved in text and over 200 woodcuts, illustrating animals, monsters, astronomical diagrams, fossils, alchemic instruments. The portraits of Kircher and of the Alessandro VII are missing. Full contemporary vellum with manuscript title. FIRST EDITION. The work is based on Kircher's visit to Sicily in 1637-38 in which he witnessed the eruptions of Etna and Stromboli. His observations of these volcanoes led him to conclude that the centre of the earth is a massive internal fire for which the volcanoes are mere safety valves. The work is not only geological and Kircher continues with fantastic speculations about the interior of the earth, its hidden lakes, rivers of fire and strange inhabitants. It includes discussions about the moon, the sun, eclipses, ocean currents, meteorology, hydraulics, minerals and fossils, poisons, metallurgy and mining, alchemy, herbs, astrological medicine, distillation and fireworks. (Caillet 5783: "La plus curieux des ouvrages. Ce monde subterrain est...un monde kabbalistique en raison des etres fantastiques dont il peuple l'interieure du globe").

Qualche difetto alla legatura.Merrill, 17: "The Mundus subterraneus, perhaps the most popular of Kircher's works in his day and the best known in ours...The basis and impetus...was Kircher's visit to Sicily in 1637-38, where he witnessed an eruption of Aetna and Stromboli. He prefaced the work with his own narrative of the trip, including his spectacular descent into Vesuvius upon his return to Italy...But the work is not solely geologic. Kircher continues with fantastic speculations about the interior of the earth, its hidden lakes, its rivers of fire, and its strange inhabitants. Major topics include gravity, the moon, the sun, eclipses, ocean currents, subterranean waters and fires, meteorology, rivers and lakes, hydraulics, minerals and fossils, subterranean giants, beasts and demons, poisons, metallurgy and mining, alchemy, the universal seed and generation of insects, herbs, astrological medicine, distillation, and fireworks, In this work he discloses his experience with palingenesis...Much of the work deals with alchemy..."

The portraits of Kircher and of the Alessandro VII are missing. Full contemporary vellum with manuscript title. FIRST EDITION. The work is based on Kircher's visit to Sicily in 1637-38 in which he witnessed the eruptions of Etna and Stromboli. His observations of these volcanoes led him to conclude that the centre of the earth is a massive internal fire for which the volcanoes are mere safety valves. The work is not only geological and Kircher continues with fantastic speculations about the interior of the earth, its hidden lakes, rivers of fire and strange inhabitants. It includes discussions about the moon, the sun, eclipses, ocean currents, meteorology, hydraulics, minerals and fossils, poisons, metallurgy and mining, alchemy, herbs, astrological medicine, distillation and fireworks.(Caillet 5783: "La plus curieux des ouvrages.

        Arcis Uraniburgi, a Tychone Brahe, dno de Knudstrup, in Insula Hellesponti Danici huenna Constructae, quo ad totam Capacitatem, de signatio.

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1665 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 46,5 x 57; - description: Map shows the observatory of Tycho Braha (Uraniborg) in Öresund, Denemark. From Astronomiae instauratae mechanica (1598).The building was dedicated to Urania, the Muse of Astronomy, and it was named Uraniborg, The Castle of Urania. It was the first custom-built observatory in modern Europe, though not the last to be built without a telescope as its primary instrument.; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years.

        Pianta di Roma come si trova al presente colle alzate delle fabbriche piu nobili cosi antiche come moderne

      La pianta del Cruyl, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1665 dalla tipografia De Rossi, è una delle rare immagini della città che presenta contemporaneamente sia un impianto iconografico che prospettico. Le vedute presenti in questa pianta sono le stesse che furono poi oggetto di specifiche vedute intagliate dall'artista fiammingo, quasi come una sorta di catalogo personale. La prima edizione della pianta è stampata da Giovanni Battista De Rossi nel 1665. Sono note una ristampa con l'aggiunta di alcune vedute dei luoghi notabili ad opera di Matteo Gregorio de Rossi (1696) e questa ulteriore tiratura a cura di Carlo Losi, datata 1773. Incisa da Giulio Testone, su due matrici di rame, tracce di pieghe di carta, alcune abrasioni, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Opera molto rara e ricercata. Magnifico esemplare della tiratura di Carlo Losi. Etching with engraving, 1665. A fine impression, with plate tone, of the third state of three, printed on 2 sheets of contemporary laid paper, full margins, very good condition. This map was published for the first time in 1665 by De Rossi; it is one of the rare images of the city depicting, at the same time, an iconographic and perspective system. The views are the same that the Flemish artist engraved afterwards as a sort of personal catalogue. The first state has been printed by Giovanni Battista De Rossi in 1665. The plate was then published by Matteo Gregorio de Rossi in 1696 and finally reissued by Carlo Losi, in 1773. It has been engraved by Giulio Testone on two copper plates. A very rare and important map of Rome. A great example. Huelsen 110; A. P. Frutaz, "Le piante di Roma", CLIV, tav. 343; M. Gori Sassoli (a cura di), "Roma Veduta" p. 175, s. 31; C.

In contemporary boards, gilt edge tooling, corners & edges lightly bumped & worn. Re-spined to style, raised bands, decorative gilt tooling, gilt titles to red calf label. Internally, imprimatur leaf, [1], [6], 92, 97-232 pp, [1] errata, 11 numbered engravings within text, 2 headers & 2 initial letters, has the final errata leaf (which is normally lacking), title page in red & black within double ruled borders, with vignette, pagination skips from 92 to 97 (printers error present in all copies), no loss of text catchword or text, its continuous, gilt tooling to board edges, text block edges sprinkled red, minimal scattered foxing, pages 17, 20, 26, 27, miss numbered 20, 17, 22, & 23. (Folio, 194*293 mm). (ESTC R12913. Wing 1203. Allibone 2621). Webb was a British architect & student of Inigo Jones (1573-1652). Jones's theory was that Stonehenge was built as a Roman temple, open to the sky & dedicated to the god Coelus. In 1663 Dr Walter Charleton in his Chorea Gigantum, attributed Stonehenge to the Danes. Webb countered with the current work which is both a rebuttal of Charleton & an invaluable account of his life, character and work of (as Webb put it) The Vitruvius of his age. See ODNB. Title continues: in which the orders and rules of architecture observed by the ancient Romans, are discussed. Together with the customs and manners of several nations of the world in matters of building of greatest antiquity. As also an historical narration of the most memorable actions of the Danes in England.

        Discours sur les causes du débordement du Nil.

      Paris: Jacques Dallin, 1665 - Quarto (252 × 183 mm). Contemporary full calf, raised bands to spine, compartments gilt with floral lozenges within double ruled panels, presentation gilt stamp to the front board, "Aux Capuchins de St. Honoré". Light browning, a little rubbed on the boards and chafed on the joints, but a very good copy. Engraved map of the topography of the Nile to the text, title page vignette, historiated initials, engraved head- and tailpieces. First edition, for the first time published separately, previously included in his Pensées of 1634 and 1662; uncommon, just six copies on OCLC, three of them in the US. Cureau was Louis XIV's doctor, the monarch apparently having been impressed by his ability to judge character from outward appearance. A precursor of Lavater, Cureau's was indeed best known for his work in the area of physiognomy, but he also published on physics – the nature of light, on rainbows – the occult, and philosophy, the final paper here being a study of the divine in Platonic philosophy. The critic Jean Chapelain, his contemporary, said of him: "C'est un excellent philosophe, et dont les écrits sont purs dans le langage, justes dans le dessein, soutenus dans les ornements, et subtils dans les raisonnements." This could perhaps be a presentation copy, as in addition to the gilt supralibros there is an inked inscripton, "Pour les Capucins de St. Honoré" to the title page. The Capuchin convent adjoined the Tuileries gardens. The Blackmer copy with bookplate to front pastedown. Blackmer Catalogue 171; Ibrahim-Hilmy p. 351. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Panarion [ou Dictionnaire médical].[Paris, ca. 1685?-ca. 1710?]. 4to (22 x 17.5 cm). Manuscript in French, written in an upright Latin hand in brown ink on paper. Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      A dictionary of medicinal remedies for more than 300 ailments, written in French and arranged alphabetically by the names of the ailments. It covers a very wide range of ailments from insomnia and menstrual problems to gangrene and even hypochondria, but especially noteworthy at this early date are the five pages (pp. 7-11) devoted to the eating disorders anorexia, pica (the eating of things that are not food) and bulimia. It begins with a list of weights and measures, sometimes giving equivalents (p. 1), followed by the alphabetical entries (pp. 2-604) and additions on epilepsy, tobacco oil and other subjects (pp. 605-621). After numerous blank leaves, the manuscript ends with a 9-page glossary with brief definitions of about 100 technical terms (a 2-page table of contents plus pp. a-i).What appears to be the oldest inscription on the endpapers, at the head of the first free endleaf, reads, "Faron m[aî]tre en chiru[r]gie". Little seems to be known about him, but is probably the Luc Faron, "maître chirurgien" in Paris whom a 1665 document describes as the second husband of Elisabeth Le Tellier. The dating is problematic and leaves may have been added during the writing of the text, possibly for decades. Some of the late additions to the manuscript are written in a different hand.With numerous contemporary and 19th-century inscriptions on the endleaves. A couple bifolia slightly loose, an occasional transparent ink stain (never obscuring the text), an occasional dried drop of what may be medicines, and a few leaves with minor and mostly marginal water stains, but still in good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving generous margins. The binding is slightly loose and a group of quires has shifted toward the fore-edge, with a few worm holes in the boards and spine, some cracks in the hinges and only fragments of the ties.

        Real Grandeza de la Serenissima Republica de Genova traducida en lengua italiana por Carlo Esperon [scritta in lingua spagnola e poi aggionta e tradotta da C. Sperone]

      - Madrid, por Ioseph Fernandez de Buendia el Ano 1665 (in Genova, per Gio: Battista Tiboldi, 1669). In folio (182x118 mm.), cc. (9) + antiporta, pp. 351, (1). Elegante antiporta allegorica incisa in rame, nota di posesso al frontespizio "Peragallo, Lisbona 1884". Elegante legatura in mezza pelle, fregi e 2 tasselli al dorso. Testo in italiano e spagnolo. Esemplare molto bello, freschissimo e ottimamente impresso su carta forte, completo dell'antiporta allegorica di grandiosa fattura inciso da Marcus Orozco (mancante a quasi tutti gli esemplari), e appartenuto al celebre americanista genovese Prospero Peragallo. Molto probabilmente è questa la prima ed unica edizione. Infatti, benché i dati editoriali e la premessa indichino una precedente edizione madrilena in idioma spagnolo (che l'autore stesso sostiene essergli stata cagione di "gran borrasche") e benché il Soprani (Scrittori della Liguria, p. 69) la menzioni già nel 1667, senza averla mai veduta, col titolo castigliano di "Honores Regios merecidos della Serenissima Republica di Genova", si segnala che non risultano essere state mai censite copie di questi fogli madrileni e lo stesso Palau, riferendo che "desconocemos la edicion de Madrid que hace suponer la portada descrita", lascia alludere che ci si possa ritrovare di fronte a una falsa indicazione (non risultando per di più credibile che un'opera prodotta per "ubbidire a un gran ministro della Corona di Spagna" possa rappresentare argomentazioni anche solo prudentemente contrastanti con gli interessi di quella corona medesima). I propositi encomiastici del lavoro dello Speroni ci vengono premessi già col disegno dell'elegante antiporta: l'allegoria di Genova, trainata da grifoni, sovrastata dalla "Fama" e con la città racchiusa tra i monti magnificamente intagliata sullo sfondo, cavalca i due emisferi dell'antico e del nuovo mondo ornati dal motto "unus non sufficit orbis" e tagliati dalla scritta "auspice Columbo". Ai Genovesi, dunque, si deve la duplicazione del mondo così come a Genova è d'obbligo il riconoscimento dei cosiddetti "onori regali" (che comportavano l'assentimento circa il suo dominio assoluto sul mare Tirreno). Al fine di raggiungere lo scopo prefissato nella sua opera, lo Speroni "si era messo a ricercare dentro le storie di ogni paese e - cosa notevolissima in quel tempo - negli archivi patrii i documenti di quella grandezza. Ed era riuscito, a detta del Lopez, il primo storico dell'impero coloniale genovese: il primo e, per almeno due secoli, l'unico" (cfr. S. Rotta, Genova e il Re Sole, in "El siglo de los genoveses", a cura di P. Boccardo e C. di Fabio, Milano, Electa, 1999, pp. 286-291). Bibliogr. Palau, 104625. Soprani, Scrittori, pp.68-69.

Dimensions du volume : 135 x 85 mm. Reliure de l'époque plein vélin à coutures apparentes (reliure hollandaise). Titre à l'encre au dos (bien conservé). Bel exemplaire au vélin très frais (à noter un petit trou dans le secon plat, sans gravité). Intérieur très frais. Petit manque angulaire à un feuillet du premier ouvrage, sans atteinte au texte. Quelques passages soulignés à l'encre verte ou rouge, dans le premier ouvrage seulement. Le premier ouvrage est de Jan Jonston (1603-1675), scientifique né en Pologne ayant migré en Ecosse en 1622. Il est connu pour ses différents ouvrages sur l'Histoire Naturelle. Sa Thaumatographia Naturalis (ou description des merveilles de la nature) a paru pour la première fois en 1632. Outre l'aspect scientifique on trouve dans ce recueil sur les animaux, les plantes, les météores, les fossiles, les oiseaux, etc., nombre d'anecdotes curieuses et étranges. Johnston évoque le somnambulisme. Il rapporte ainsi qu’un jeune homme sortait toutes les nuits de son lit, vêtu seulement de sa chemise ; puis montant sur la fenêtre de sa chambre, il sautait à cheval sur le mur et le talonnait pour accélérer la course qu’il croyait faire. Un autre descendit dans un puits et s’éveilla aussitôt que son pied eut touché l’eau, qui était très-froide. Un autre monta sur une tour, enleva un nid d’oiseaux et se glissa à terre par une corde, sans s’éveiller. Un Parisien, de même endormi, se leva, prit son épée, traversa la Seine à la nage, tua un homme que, la veille, il s’était proposé d’assassiner ; et, après qu’il eut consommé son crime, il repassa la rivière, retourna à sa maison et se mit au lit sans s’éveiller. (cité par Colin de Plancy dans son Dictionnaire infernal). on y lit nombre de superstitions et croyances anciennes sur les propriétés des plantes notamment. A propos de la bétoine (Stachys officinalis) par exemple Johnston dit que non seulement elle éloigne tout ce qui est redoutable, mais qu’elle a la propriété de faire sortir tous les os cassés. Cet ouvrage est un excellent compendium des connaissances dans le domaine pour l'époque. Il a été réimprimé de nombreuses fois. Cette édition de Leyde est une très jolie édition en petits caractères, très bien imprimée. Références : « A treatise on natural wonders, divided into ten categories : the new stars, the elements, meteors, minerals, plants, birds, quadrupeds, insects and other ‘bloodless’ animals, fish, and men.» (Norman 1177) ; Garrisson Morton, 287. Le second ouvrage contenu dans ce volume est l'oeuvre d'un inconnu. La première édition date de 1597 (sous un titre légèrement différent) et seule l'épître dédicatoire est signée Henningus Grosius Bibliopol. ce qui a fait croire que l'ouvrage était entièrement de lui (il a découvert et publié le manuscrit). On trouve au début du volume un catalogue des auteurs cités tout au long, depuis les auteurs de l'antiquité jusqu'à ceux de la Renaisance. Ce sont plus de 900 petites histoires de spectres et de revenants. Il n'existe pas d'édition en français de ce volume. Le titre-frontispice à l'eau-forte est très joli et montre une sorcière et son chaudron, entourée de diables et de spectres ailés.

Pros [de] t[ou]tois typos k[ai] tropos tes katagaseos, cheirotonias, kai kathieroseos episkopon, presbyteron, k[ai] diakonon.

      En te Kantabrigia: Ioannou Phieldou, 1665. 12mo (14.5 cm, 5.75"). [36], 126, [2 (blank)] pp. [as issued, with the same publisher's] Bible. Psalms. Greek. 1664.

Greek. 1665. Tes kaines diathekes apanta. 12mo. [2], 419, [1], pp.    First edition of this Greek translation of the Book of Common Prayer. The preface is signed "I.D.," i.e., James Duport, a popular professor of Greek at the University of Cambridge, who had the year before printed a translation of the Psalter (which appears here with the BCP as issued, under a separate title-page) and Ordinal, along with the Greek New Testament and Apocrypha (the title-page of the New Testament being an insert, and the Apocrypha having separate pagination). This is only the second translation of the BCP into Greek, following the first by Elias Petley in 1638. There were apparently two settings of this edition produced by printer John Field in the same year, under the same title and imprint, with priority not established; the present example has line six of the main title-page all in capital letters, and the "Alma mater Cantabrigia" device following the last page of the Psalter — but while the sun is on the left and the cup on the right of the Psalter title-page device, they are reversed on the New Testament title-page, apparently indicating that the New Testament is from a variant post-dating the BCP and Psalter.    Binding: Contemporary mottled calf Cambridge-style, covers framed in double gilt fillets and panelled in triple gilt fillets with gilt-tooled corner fleurons; spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and gilt-ruled compartments.    Provenance: Front free endpaper with early inscription in red pencil: "Gibson's [/] Queens [/] Oxon. [/] 1787[?]." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel (“AHA”) at rear.         Biblos: Wing (rev.) B3632; ESTC R204258; Griffiths 45:3. Psalterion: Wing B2720A; ESTC R204259. Tes kaines diathekes: Darlow & Moule 4702; Wing B2733. Bound as above, worn and showing expectable acid-pitting with edges, extremities, and spine rubbed; spine label cracked with loss of central portion of label. Endpapers with early inked annotations in Greek and English. Central portion with top-marginal faint to light waterstaining, generally though not always but a sliver; one leaf with tear from outer margin into text, with loss of one letter; one leaf with short tear along paper flaw, without loss of text. Final work with early inked underlining; rear fly-leaf with a few jotted references in Greek. => A scholar's copy of this nice example of early English Greek liturgical/scriptural printing.
