"Das vorgestellte Instrumentarium setzt sich aus den wichtigsten und gebräuchlisten zeitgenössischen, einigen von Scultetus selbst erfundenen oder verbesserten (Tafel 4, Fig.2-5; Tafel 5, Fig. 1-6) und wenigen älteren, weniger gebrauchten Instrumenten zusammen. Die hervorragende Qualität der Abbildungen beweisen Vergleiche mit Originalen, z.B. aus dem Germanischen Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg.

        NOVERINT UNIVERSI QUOD NOS FRANCISCUS AMELA.

      Valencia, 1666 - . 29 cm. Manuscrito de 16 fol. en soporte pergamino. Edición en orla. Enc. en pergamino algo mareado, con pequeña falta en la esquina superior derecha, lomera rotulada. Faltas en las esquinas de diversas hojas, que sólo en un caso afectan al texto. Algunas páginas algo amarillentas. * Presentamos una recopilación de documentos en latín relativos a la compra-venta y arrendamiento de diversas piezas de tierra y una alcarria en la ciudad de Valencia que se enmarcan en el intervalo comprendido entre los años 1604 y 1666, a pesar de que la redacción corresponde a esta última fecha y, por tanto, los documentos constituyen traslados de los originales. De hecho, no están ordenados de forma cronológica, sino que se disponen aleatoriamente. El nexo de unión entre ellos son las figuras de Francisco Almela y su hijo Crisógono, como vendedores, y Pedro Pablo Tristany del Pinell, en tanto que comprador. En todos los casos pagan censos y luiciones a distintos beneficiados y rectores de iglesias como Santa Paula de la Pobleta (Andilla, Valencia), o San Martín, o al ilustre capítulo y canónigo metropolitano de la ciudad. La recopilación incluye tanto recibos de los representates eclesiásticos hacia el vendedor como de Francisco Almela. Se tratan también asuntos como el pago de un debitorio y de un censal. Una de las propiedades que aparece de forma recurrente son nueve fanegas de tierra sembradas de viña situadas en la huerta de la ciudad. Los señores directos van variando, y en cada caso se establecen los censos pagados por la propiedad. La pieza limita con el camino de Picasent, con la alcarria de Crisógono Almela y con el molino de la Gavia. Además de dicha pieza aparecen también viñedos y construcciones auxiliares como establos o molinos. Resulta un documento interesante para el estudio de la organización de la huerta valenciana a mediados del siglo XVII, pues aporta valiosas equivalencias toponímicas. El conjunto está firmado por Pedro Climent, notario público de la ciudad y el reino de Valencia, que da fe de las diversas transacciones. València. Segle XVII. Horta valenciana. Transaccions.

      Amsterdam: c 1666 - Size: 560 × 650 mm. Copperplate engraving in full original colour, partially heightened in gold. Fine condition. An unusual map of the 'Fenland' regions of East Anglia. The Fens are a naturally marshy region in eastern England. Most of the fens were drained several centuries ago, resulting in a flat, damp, low-lying agricultural region. This map encompasses Cambridge in the west to Kings Lynn and Boston (via Ely) in the east, to Peterborough in the north. The map is embellished with a rococo style mileage scale, a royal coat of arms, and a wonderful title cartouche in the lower right corner. The Atlas Mayor (the Spanish edition of the Atlas Maior) is the rarest edition of what De la Fontaine Verwey called "the greatest and finest atlas ever published". The Spanish edition was never completed. When fire destroyed the Blaeu printing house at the Gravenstraat in Amsterdam in 1672, the final volume was in the press and consequently lost. H. De la Fontaine Verwey, The 'Spanish Blaeu,' in Quaerendo 11 (1981), pp. 83-94.

        A Relation of the defeating Card. Mazarine and Oliv. Cromwel’s design to have taken Ostend by treachery in the year 1658. Written in Spanish by a person of quality (who was a chief actor in the preventing of it) . and now translated into English. [by Sir Charles Cotterell].

      Printed for Hen. Herrington 1666 - washed and pressed, headline in sig. B cropped and preliminary leaves cut close, pp. [x], 132, 12mo, twentieth-century panelled calf gilt, spine gilt, red lettering piece, rebacked preserving original spine, sound According to Sidney Lee’s DNB entry on Cotterell there was an edition of this translation in 1660, and Abbott signifies as much, stating that ‘by treachery in the year 1658 .’ is added to the title in this edition, also giving Lord Mazarin rather than Card. Mazarine. Wing and ESTC do not record a 1660 edition, neither is there one in Harvard. Regarding this edition ESTC states ‘Spanish original not traced’, but Abbott lists it, and there is a copy in Bodley. After seizing Dunkirk, Mazarin proposed to Cromwell a new treaty whereby Ostend, when captured from the Spanish, would be ceded to England. But the surprise attack on Ostend was defeated, and Cromwell died. (see Abbott 972; ESTC R25098)

        Vida i Virtudes del illmo. i excmo. Senor D. Iuan de Palafox i Mendoza.

      Julian de Paredes, Madrid 1666 - Folio, half-title, frontis. portrait, title, ff. [28], pp 534 (actually 532: error in pagination), ff 12 (index). First biography of Palafox, written at the behest of the cardinal of Toledo, Moscoso y Sandoval, who had been one of Palafox's greatest friends. Fr. Gonzalez de Rosende was a franciscan friar, professor of theology at the university of Alcala de Henares, prefect of his order in Spain, and commissar of the Inquisition. Palafox y Mendoza was Bishop of Puebla, Mexico, Archbishop-elect of Mexico, Viceroy, etc., etc. One of the most important figures of colonial Mexico, Palafox (1600 - 59) was a Spaniard, abandoned as an infant, in a basket no less, but rescued and adopted into a noble family. He rose quickly to prominence, and was sent to Mexico as bishop of Puebla. There he founded, among many other accomplishments, the Biblioteca Palofoxiana, still in existence. He quickly came into conflict with the regular clergy, who had enormous power in Mexico and were a world and law to themselves. Palafox tried to bring them under the control of the secular authorities, i.e. the bishops. For a time he had the suport of the king and even the pope, until he tangled with the Jesuits, whose power was too great. He was abruptly called back to Spain and the bishopric of Osma, which was seen as a demotion, and certainly marked the end of his political power. Of notable sanctity, he received the necessary votes for beatification -- the first step to sainthood -- but Pope Pius VI suspended final decision. This work of Rosende was reprinted in 1671in Madrid, and in the 18th century as vol. xiii in Palafox's collected works. The printing of this volume is of superb quality, as are the frontispiece portrait of Palafox and the engraved title page with vignette, both of which are signed in the image. Very uncommon title in the market, as well as rare at auction (2 copies since 1950, neither in anywhere near good condition): Worldcat notes library holdings of 5 copies. Very nice copy in a later, fine full dark speckled-calf binding with raised bands, fleurons, etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Seule édition ancienne de cette traduction française, très rare. Le traducteur, qui a signé la dédicace, est Jean Bonamour. Cet ouvrage est divisé en trois livres : le premier est essentiellement consacré aux affections utérines ; le deuxième à la stérilité, à la grossesse, aux fausses couches, aux grossesses gémellaires, monstrueuses, et le dernier traite des lésions du sein et de l'allaitement. L'auteur est le premier à utiliser le terme de chlorose ; il conseille, dans cette affection, du bon vin, des fruits secs et des viandes "délicates & rosties". Il décrit les convulsions de l'éclampsie. Il estime que "le f¿tus dans la matrice ne vit que par le moyen de la mère", que le décès de la mère entraîne donc celui de l'enfant et que la césarienne est par conséquent inutile dans ce cas ; par contre, il estime la césarienne nécessaire " si l'enfant ne peut sortir autrement, quoy que la mort de la mere s'ensuive, parce qu'il vaut mieux en conserver un, que de perdre les deux".

        Domini nostri Iesu Christi Testamentum novum Turcice redittum. Opera [William] Seaman.

      Oxford: H. Hall 1666 - FIRST EDITION, Latin title, followed by Turkish title and text in Arabic script, slightly browned around the edges, a few spots, including rust spots with the occasional loss of a letter or two, tear in lower margin of 3h3, not affecting text pp. [iv], 160, 600, small 4to, contemporary blind ruled calf, a bit worn at corners, skilfully rebacked, Macclesfield bookplate and blind stamps, with a number of corrections to the text in a contemporary hand, very good ‘In December 1655 Seaman was appointed secretary of the trade committee (which met at Westminster) at a yearly salary of £100. Some years later he became involved in an international project of evangelization of the Levant, originating in the circle of Samuel Hartlib, whose millenarian convictions included belief in the imminent conversion to Christianity of the Muslims and a determination to hasten the process. In England the plan was fostered by Hartlib himself, Henry Oldenburg, John Durie, and above all Robert Boyle, with Edward Pococke and John Worthington taking a marginal role. It obtained even more support in the Netherlands, thanks mainly to the Bohemian scholar Jan Amos Comenius and the French refugee Petrus Serrarius. A fundamental role was to be played by the translation of the Bible into Turkish. The Dutch, who relied on a Polish convert to Islam in Constantinople, were slow, however, and only the Old Testament was completed. Boyle then turned to Seaman, who had already translated the Johannine epistles into Turkish in 1659, asking him to translate the entire New Testament. By 1664 Seaman had done so and two years later his translation was published at Boyle's expense in Oxford, making Seaman the first European to publish a Turkish translation of the New Testament’ (Alastair Hamilton in ODNB). Scarce.Like so many books from the Macclesfield library, this is an interesting copy. At the end of the text there is an oval medallion stamp giving the title of the work in Turkish, indicating that this was one of the copies intended for export. We don’t know when it entered Shirburn Castle, but it seems more likely than not that it ever strayed very far from its place of printing. Scattered throughout the volume are corrections to the text, and in one place a marginal note in Turkish. In collating we have noticed these on 15 pages, sometime two or three to a page: a really painstaking examination would probably discover more, since some of them are very slight, just a letter. In addition, starting about half way through the volume, there are numerous dots placed right by the fore-margin which will have some significance. The notes are accomplished in a practiced hand, and such a hand was not in abundant supply in England in 1666. One candidate for the notes is Edward Pococke, and intriguingly the initials EP appear in MS in a couple of combinations on the inside back cover. But they are next to what seems to be a collation note and perhaps signify something pertaining to their acquisition rather than ownership. We are grateful to Professor Gerald Toomer who has looked at the inscriptions, concluding that as regards Pococke ‘the verdict is non liquet.’ (Darlow and Moule 9345; Madan 2727 ‘A noticeable volume, as being the first New Testament printed at Oxford’; ESTC R31588, recording 5 copies outside the UK, 2 in Germany, and 3 in the US: Huntington, Texas, and Yale)

Without the map of Japan, but with two copies of the Tasman map of Australia, in the first and third issues. Folio. 18th-century calf, spines gilt; rebacked with original spines laid down. Bookplate on front pastedowns. Light toning and foxing. Very good. A handsome set of Thévenot's significant and wide-ranging compilation of voyages and travels to the New World, Australia, Asia, the East Indies, the Far East, and Africa. This work is an essential document for the study of European discovery and exploration to all areas of the known world in the early modern period, reprinting numerous texts first published in several countries in a variety of languages. Complementing the texts are maps, plates, and in-text illustrations documenting voyages and explorations, geographic areas, coastal profiles, flora, fauna, native costumes and customs, and exotic alphabets and languages such as Chinese, Chaldean, and Mexican pictographs. Most significant among these are two different issues of the first map to show a separate Australian continent, by Abel Tasman. Melchisedech Thévenot (ca. 1620-92) was a French author and scientist. He is well known for his work on THE ART OF SWIMMING (1696) and for his invention of the bubble level. Additionally, he compiled this important collection of travel narratives which contains many important maps, including the Abel Tasman map of Terra Australis and some of the earliest and most detailed depictions of the Middle East. This work is particularly valuable for its content on China and the East Indies. Included here is a lengthy geographical description of the Chinese empire by Martino Martini, the Jesuit missionary and historian. Martini (1614-61) spent most of the last twenty years of his life in China, studying the country's history and geography in an objective manner, making his account incredibly useful to scholars both then and now. Accompanying Martini's work is a large and detailed map of China; there are several other sizable maps of the East Indies present as well, showing India, the Philippines, and Ethiopia. American voyages are discussed in the preliminary "Avis" in the beginning of the work, and the primary texts of New World interest are found in part four. These include Acarete du Biscay's VOYAGE...A BUENOS AIRES SUR LA RIVIERE DE LA PLATE, first published in Paris in 1672 (which itself includes Juan de Palafox y Mendoza's "L'Indien, ou Portrait au naturel des Indiens"); a marvellous forty-six-page woodcut facsimile of the CODEX MENDOZA taken from the London 1625 edition of Samuel Purchas' PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES; and Thomas Gage's RELATION DU MEXIQUE, ET DE LA NOUVELLE ESPAGNE, an abridged translation of Gage's THE ENGLISH-AMERICAN, HIS TRAVAIL BY SEA AND LAND which was first published in London in 1648. Beyond the Americas, the work includes François Pelsart's account of the discovery of Australia, complete with the rare map based on the explorations of Abel Janszoon Tasman. One of the first charts to show parts of the Australian coastline in detail, it records part of the coast of New Guinea, Tasmania, and much of the east coast of Australia. It is a basic work of Australian cartography, present here in both the first issue, with incorrect latitudes, no Tropic of Capricorn, no rumb lines, and without Tasman's track, and its third issue, with the Tropic of Capricorn inserted and with the rhumblines. "In any state the map is a great rarity. It is one of the earliest charts devoted entirely to Australia, and is the first French map of Australia" - Davidson catalogue. Other historical relations include accounts of Egypt, accompanied by plates of the pyramids and mummies; travels into various portions of the Asian landmass, including Russia; voyages sponsored by the Dutch East Indies Company; and different expeditions to China. The work is extremely complex bibliographically, as different parts were reprinted to accompany texts issued in later editions. "There is really only one edition of Thévenot's collections, issued in five parts between 1663 and 1696. Part one was first issued in 1663, part two in 1664, part three in 1666, part four during 1672-4, and part five in 1696. During the course of publication, the parts of the collection already published were reissued with new titles pages in 1664, 1666, 1672, 1683, and 1696. Some sheets were reprinted for these reissues. The contents and arrangement of individual copies vary" - EUROPEAN AMERICANA. This copy conforms to the "second issue" of the first three volumes, all dated 1666, with the fourth volume appearing in its first issue and dated 1672. The Lenox Library's account of Thévenot, compiled in the 19th century, remains the best source in its delineation of the various segments and configurations. The maps are an invaluable source of information. According to the Lenox Library collation, all maps here are present excepting a map of Japan. However, the Tasman map of Australia is present in two copies, in both the first and third states. The maps are as follow: 1) "Carte de la Colchida." 14 x 18 inches. Accompanies text on travels to Georgia and the Caucuses. 2) "Description de la partie des Indes Orientales qui es sous la domination du Grand Mogol." 14 x 17 inches. Map showing the northern part of the Indian subcontinent as controlled by the Mughal Empire. 3) "Vera delineatio civitatis Bassorae nec non fluuiorum...." 13 1/2 x 16 inches. An engraved plan of the city of Bassora and its environs. 4) "Terre Australe." 16 1/2 x 22 inches. The rare first state of the Abel Tasman map, the first map of Australia. 5) "Terre Australe." 16 x 28 inches. The third state of the Abel Tasman map. 6) "Ioao Teixeira cosmographo de sua megestad Afez em Lixboa...." 29 x 21 inches. Showing the eastern coast of Africa. 7) "Muro que por entre serras se continua por mais de 360 leguas fi zer...." 21 1/2 x 28 1/2 inches.

        Tractatus de Corde. Item de motu & colore sanguinis et chyli in eum transitu.

      FIRST EDITION, second issue (see below) of ?the most important contribution to circulatory physiology after William Harvey?s De motu cordis, published three years before Lower?s birth. Nobel Laureate André Cournand considered Lower?s book to be one of the most important texts in the history of physiology because of the nature of its observations, the rigor of its experimental design and demonstrations, and its simple and convincing form of presentation...?Lower entered medical practice in London in 1666 and continued experiments he had begun in Oxford on the motion and color of the blood and on transfusion. His observations on these subjects were summarized in Tractatus de corde.?Lower made important observations on the structure of cardiac muscle, the quantity of blood in the vascular system, the velocity of blood flow, and the effects of aeration of blood as it passed through the lungs. He was impressed by the complex arrangement of muscular fibers in the heart and felt their unique arrangement was responsible for the contraction of the ventricular cavities in systole that propelled blood into the vascular system. In a series of experiments performed with Robert Hooke, Lower showed that the red color of arterial blood was due to its contact with ?fresh air? in the lungs. His book also contained observations on the technique and safety of blood transfusion, a technique he pioneered? (W. Bruce Fye in Grolier One Hundred (Medicine).There are two issues: in the second issue, the original leaf A6 has been replaced by a cancellans in order (according to John F. Fulton) to ?modify (very slightly) a scurrilous remark...concerning the Irishman O?Meara?
