        Paradise lost

      London: Printed [by Samuel Simmons], and are to be sold by Peter Parker, Robert Boulter, and Matthias Walker,, 1667. A Poem Written in Ten Books By John Milton. Quarto (181 × 133 mm). Early 20th-century full crushed red morocco by Riviere & Sons, sides with double frame in gilt and blind enclosing central gilt cartouche, spine lettered gilt in two compartments, others with gilt motifs, blind and gilt rules either side of raised bands gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Red morocco-backed folding case. Without initial blank. The C. W. Clark?-Silver?-Webster copy, with the book label of Paul Francis Webster. Joints expertly restored, front free endpaper reattached at inner margin. Ownership inscription washed from head of title, title leaf with very slight loss at outer top edge not affecting printed area, text faintly and evenly toned throughout, a very good copy. First edition, first state title-page. The contract for the publication of Paradise Lost between Milton and the stationer Samuel Simmons is the earliest agreement between an author and a publisher for which there exists documentary evidence. Sealed on 27 April 1667, it specifies a first edition of 1,300 copies. The first edition did not finally sell out until the spring of 1669, and six successive title-pages were used to promote its sale in that time. These are traditionally described as six distinct issues, though there is no discernible relationship between the states of the titles and the settings of the preliminaries, and so "issue" is over-specific. The present is the traditional first state title-page, dated in the year of publication: Simmons registered for his copy on 20 August 1667 and the book was published late in October or early in November. This copy has the earliest setting of the preliminaries, without the note The Printer to the Reader.

        Umbra in Luce: Sive consensus et dissensus religionum profanarum, Judaismi, Samaratanismi, Muhammedismi, Gingis-Chanismi, atque Paganismi

      Jena: Bauhofer, 1667. Small quarto, with nine woodcuts throughout the text and a folding plate; title a little stained and narrowly shaved at bottom margin, final leaf repaired with small loss of text at one corner, single leaf V3 supplied in facsimile; a good copy overall in modern gilt ruled mottled calf, leaf of manuscript notes dated 1718 pasted to front blank endpaper. Esoteric idols and child sacrifice. Scarce comparative study of non-Christian religious practices (the so called religionum profanum), containing a striking assemblage of woodcut plates depicting exotic idols from the Middle East and Asia. This esoteric book on comparative religion was authored by Johann Ernst Gerhard, orientalist and professor of theology at the University of Jena. Johann Gerhard clearly identifies his own faith as a Christian of Jena (indeed, he was the son of the notable seventeenth century Lutheran theologian of the same name). This is a work of some scholarly and linguistic breadth, surveying the beliefs and practices of Judaism, Samaritanism, Islam, and paganism This final category includes Chinese and Hindu deities, as well as the ancient gods of the Mongolian steppe ('Gingis Chanismi'). Gerhard's book is in sympathy with the universalising tendency of seventeenth century scholarship, where parallels of belief such as fertility goddesses and trinitarianism are proved among disparate cultures. Nonetheless, the legitimacy of pagan belief is consistently denied in the light of Christian monotheism.A challenge for any printer of the seventeenth century, the text comprises a range of typefaces including Arabic, Hebrew and Greek. It includes a smattering of truly exotic and probably fanciful words printed using woodcut inserts (Tibetan and Elamite being two such examples). The woodcut images and folding plates are visually arresting, and include the flaming bronze idol of Moloch, purportedly the site of child sacrifice in ancient times. Other images present a Mayan glyph, Toman coins, and a Hindu god. The folding plate depicts a Javanese shadow puppet.With an early nineteenth century bookplate of the Linonian Meeting, a secret society founded at Yale University in 1753.

        Historia de las islas de Mindanao, Jolo, y sus adyacentes

      One of the earliest and most important Works on the Philippine Islands, the strikingly rare first edition. 1667. Madrid. Herederos de Pablo del Val. In folio. 12 ff. + 567 + 3 ff. Original vellum, a little soiled, else fine. Title page with marginal restoration affecting a few letters, some foxing spots but generally a very fresh and clean copy.First edition. The Combes is, by any consideration, one of the single most important works on the Philippine Islands of the 17th century. "Preciadisima obra . . ., el mejor que existe sobre Mindanao y Joló, y uno de las más notables de . . . la Bibliografía Filipina", "con la rareza, que es mucha, de esta obra magistral, compite su importancia, es la más antigua y circunstanciada historia de las islas del sur [its rarity, which is considerable, of this magistral work, competes with its importance, it is the oldest and most remarkable history of the islands of the south]" (Retana). Combes (1620 ?" 1665) was a Spanish missionary born in Zaragoza; in 1640 he travelled to the Philippines where he stayed for 25 years, giving him time to get well acquainted with the natives, their social and cultural reality, he travelled profusely. Death found him in Acapulco, en route back to Spain. "This History has always been considered one of the most valuable pearls of Phillipine literature, for Combes was an uncommonly intelligent observer who personally visited most of the localities which he describes, while occupying himself a high position in his order, so that he not only wrote but made history. His book and that of Forrest were made up to the time of Semper?s travels, the authorities followed by all geographers. It is improbable that more than a few ever saw Combes? original, of which, in all Middle Europe, only one example is to be found (Chamisso?s copy given to the Prussian State Library in Berlin). Especially interesting are the notes on the Negritos, showing that two hundred years ago they were comparatively common in localities in Mindanao, where they have now entirely disappeared. "The zoologist, too, will be interested in Combes? statement that wild elephants were then to be found in the Islands."---Translation from Blumentritt." (Maggs, 1923). "Obra bien trabajada y clásica por excelencia" (Palau). The work contains some of the first ethnographical descriptions of its inhabitants, as well as comments on the native tongs and costumes. Of extreme rarity in the market, only one copy in the market in the last 30 years according to Americana Exchange. Retana ?"arguably Philippines´ foremost bibliographer- had a reprint made, out of the great scarcity and importance.Palau, 57910. Medina, Filipinas, 193. Retana, 15.

The natural causes of fire, morally applied. III. The most remarkable passages and circumstances of that dreadful fire. IV. Counsels and comfort unto such as are sufferers by the said judgment.The folding plate is a dramatic picture of the Fire (London's fier began September the second, 1666). It depicts a view of London in flames as seen from the south bank of the Thames. There is a maze of houses in the foreground, London bridge crossing a river teeming with small boats (two on fire) and the burning city of London behind with St. Paul's cathedral in its midst.Samuel Rolle (or Rolls), (ca. 1628-1679/80), was a Church of England clergyman, born in London but having enjoyed various preferments outside the city itself. In 1665 it was reported that Rolls "liveth in or near Kingston upon Thames and practiseth phisick". Rolls was elected chaplain at Bridewell on 20 October 1669, was ordained in 1677 but never got on with the Bishop of London. From 1664 until his death Rolle was a hospitaller at St. Thomas's Hospital in Southwark.Rolle was far from being alone in using the fire as an excuse for preaching that it was nothing less than God's condemnation of a sinful London. The book is, however, not simply a rant against social decay. It also contains vivid eye witness material on the plight of homeless Londoners forced to camp in tents in Moorfields, and on those, such as carters and landlords, who profited from the catastrophe. The author also describes the dangerous state of ruined buildings, whose tottering walls threatened to collapse on to passers-by. Rolle's book also reveals some interesting observations about the fire, how people felt about it and its effect on Londoners: how some nearly died of fright, the losses that were suffered, how some got lost among the ruins and could not recognise even their own street. He voices his disgust at opportunists profiting from the fire, landlords in the areas not affected who raised their rents, carters who charged extortionate fees to carry away people's belongings, and thieves who looted people's possessions.8vo., with a large folding engraved frontispiece of the fire, (26) + 128 + (4) + 220 + (4) + 144pp., possibly wanting a half-title, skilfully rebound in old-style half calf over marbled boards, flat spine with gilt lines and label.

        Hahnenkamm. Celosia cristata.

      - Gouache, über Bleistiftskizze, auf Bütten. 32,4 x 24,9 cm. Zu den Rändern hin etwas gebräunt. Verso bezeichnet „Kopetzky", vielleicht als alter Besitzvermerk zu verstehen. Der bedeutende Porträtmaler Johann Kopetzky (1667 – 1740) war seit 1723 in Nürnberg ansässig und dürfte die „Dietzschin" persönlich gekannt haben. Der Hahnenkamm ist im tropischen Asien heimisch und wurde um 1570 in Europa eingeführt. Er ist auch heute noch als Zierpflanze verbreitet. Die aus einer Künstlerfamilie stammende, international bekannte Malerin und Zeichnerin Barbara Regina Dietzsch war die älteste Tochter des Malers, Zeichners und Radierers J.I. Dietzsch (1681-1754). Ihre Ausbildung erhielt sie wie ihre Schwester Margarete Barbara (1726-1795) sowie ihre fünf jüngeren Brüder in der Werkstatt des Vaters. Mehrmals wurde ihr die Position einer Hofmalerin an europäischen Fürstenhöfen angeboten, die sie jedoch immer ablehnte. 1775 hatte sie einen Schlaganfall, der sie jedoch nicht davon abhielt bis 1781 weiterzuarbeiten. Ihr Hauptbeschäftigungsfeld waren die im 18. Jahrhundert beliebten Darstellungen von Vögeln, Insekten, Blumen und Landschaften sowie Jagdszenen und Porträts, die sich durch Detailgenauigkeit und -freude auszeichnen. In Nürnberg, zu dieser Zeit „Hochburg des naturwissenschaftlichen Verlags- und Illustrationswesens" fanden ihre Arbeiten großen Absatz und hatten vorbildhaften Charakter für die naturgeschichtliche Kabinettmalerei.

        L'invasion de la ville du Mans par les religionnaires en l'année mille cinq cens soixante et deux. Conversation par escrit à Mr D.R.A.C.

      Louis Pequineau, Au Mans 1667 - In-8. Collation : 124, (1) pp. Maroquin violet foncé, dos à nerfs orné, filets d'encadrement sur les plats, tête dorée. (Reliure du XIXe.). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Première édition. Claude Blondeau était avocat au Mans. "On racontait que le séjour des protestants dans la ville du Mans avait été signalé par d'affreuses déprédations ; on leur imputait une foule de crimes plus ou moins vraisemblables. Blondeau eut le courage de contredire la tradition. Sans nier les faits réels, c'est-à-dire le pillage de quelques abbayes, la dévastation des églises, quelques délits individuels dont la responsabilité ne peut être équitablement attribuée aux partis, il fit le récit des événements avec une entière indépendance, sans plus ménager les catholiques que les protestants. Cela ne convint pas à tout le monde. Ce que les catholiques lui pardonnèrent le moins, ce fut d'avoir raconté comme un fait naturel la retraite précipitée des protestants, le 11 ou le 12juillet 1562. Maîtres de la ville du Mans, les calvinistes y avaient comprimé toute résistance, quand on les vit un certain jour, sans motifs connus et comme pris d'une subite terreur, traverser la Sarthe au Pont- Ysoir, et quitter la ville pour n'y plus revenir. Or, en ce jour, les catholiques célébraient la fête annuelle de sainte Scholastique, sainte particulièrement vénérée dans l'Église du Mans ; on n'hésita donc pas à croire que la retraite imprévue des protestants avait été l'oeuvre mystérieuse de la céleste patronne, et cette croyance devint traditionnelle. Blondeau rejeta ce prodige." (Haureau, Histoire littéraire du Maine). Une seconde partie : "Religionnaire attaqué et défendu, dissertation critique" occupe les pages 97 à 124. Provenance : Des ardilliers (signature sur la page de titre). La même main a ajouté sur la titre "par C. B." C'était un parent de l'auteur, puisque la famille "Blondeau des Ardilliers" est attestée par Le Paige dans son Dictionnaire du Maine, publié au XVIIIe et comme le signale une note au crayon sur une page de garde, contemporaine de la reliure. Deux mots ont été ajoutés à la plume, certainement par des Ardilliers (pp. 24, 28). Le feuillet M4 en tête de la seconde partie n'a pas été conservé par le relieur, il s'agit très certainement d'un feuillet blanc. Très rare. Page de titre doublée, coin supérieur des trois premiers feuillets réparés, sans atteinte au texte. Bon exemplaire, relié par Pinot, relieur au Mans au XIXe. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Reginae Christianissmae Iura in Ducatum Brabantiae, et Alios Ditionis Hispanicae Principatus

      1667. No place, 1667. Titlepage, (iii),293pp. Contemporary mottled calf. A beautiful wide-margined copy of this work. The War of Devolution (1667?-1668) saw Louis XIV's French armies overrun the Hapsburg controlled Spanish Netherlands. Louis's claims to the Spanish Netherlands were tenuous. His wife, Maria Theresa, the daughter of Philip IV, had renounced her rights of a Spanish inheritance in return for a large dowry at the time of her marriage. The dowry had yet to be paid, however. When Philip died in 1665, Louis' lawyers justified Louis's possible claims by arguing that, while Spanish laws of succession meant the throne of Philip IV would pass to his son Charles II, ancient laws of Duchy of Brabant ruled that the Spanish Netherlands could "devolve" to Philip's daughter from his first marriage, Louis's wife. France pressed the claim in 1667 and the present work was a kind of war announcement. The Latin edition was published the same year as the French one.

        The Island of Candia [Crete] with Candia capital city of the Island of the same name. "Candie ville Métropolitaine de l'isle de même nom " & " Isle de Candie

      Greece: Paris P du Val. " Chez l'Auteur, en l'Isle du Palais , sur Quay de l'Horologe, au coin de la rue Harlay." 1667. Copper engraved map and town plan of Crete and Iraklion, by Pierre du Val from his Atlas " Cartes De Géographie Les Plus Nouvelles Et Les Plus Fidèles." Modern colour; verso blank. 2 on 1 plate. A scarce sheet from du Val's atlas, the upper plan showing the fortifications of the city of Iraklion; the map showing the divisions of the island with the islands of Milos, Sikinos, Folegandros, Ios, Santorini, Anafi and Astipalea, to the north. Compass rose to sea. Good impression; odd spots; dampstain to edge of upper margin; remargined to sides with paper of the same atlas; numerous folds and creases; lower map with long crease through island with some holes, backed at some time with old paper [ the description of Candia from the same atlas, but sadly with the text face down so verso blank]. Condition not perfect but acceptable for such a scarce map. Pierre Du Val (1619-1683) was one of the most influential and prolific mapmakers and publishers working in Paris in the third quarter of the seventeenth century. He was the nephew of Nicolas Sanson, the leading French mapmaker of the period, and Geographer to the King of France from 1650. He was also responsible for providing maps for other Parisian editors of the period; Jollain, de Fer and Berey amongst others. The early years of Du Val's career were devoted to his atlas projects, while later in his career he was to concentrate on separately published, and often multi-sheet, maps. His first atlas was the Cartes Geographiques Methodiquement Divisees published in 1654. This contained only a few of Du Val's own maps with the others comprising those of Sanson, Briet, Boisseau and even those of the earlier Dutch mapmakers, Mercator, Blaeu, Hondius and Jansson. The atlas was re-issued in 1655 and 1667, and the title was altered to "Cartes De Géographie Les Plus Nouvelles Et Les Plus Fidèles." These later issues contained more of Du Val's own maps but were still very much supplemented by the maps of other makers. Du Val also specialised in producing parlour games, games designed to teach geography and even snakes and ladders! Small sized works also formed part of his output as did geographical tables, genealogies and chronologies. Other early works by Du Val included La Geographie Francoise, La Geographie Universelle, Cartes Pours Les Itineraires and Cartes Des Provinces Eschues A La Reine amongst others. After his death in 1683 the business was continued first by his widow Marie Desmaretz and then by his daughters.

Decorative title cartouche; native Africans holding a buffalo skin, monkeys and turtles at their feet; elephants to Mozambique, and buffalos and monkeys to interior; large ships and turtle to seas. Dark impression; clean and bright ; minor spots and pain spots to blank margins. Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C. ( United East India Company)in 1633 he died in 1638. leaving the company to his sons Joan and Cornelius Of Cornelius little is know; his name appearing on in the prefaces of books and atlases only until c1645. Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635. (preface dated 10-3-1634) two volumes.

Chevalier de Beaulieu (1612? -1674) Sébastien Beaulieu of Pontault (c. 1612 - 1674 ), Mr. Beaulieu le Donjon and Knight of the Order of St. Michael, known as the Knight of Beaulieu, was Field Marshal and military engineer in the service of Louis XIV of France . He published the "Little Beaulieu" (series of maps and profiles) and the first plates of "Les Glorieuses Conquêtes de Louis le Grand, Roy de France et de Navarre, ou sont representées les cartes, profils, plans des villes avec leurs attaques, combats, batailles et victoires, prises, et remportées sur ses ennemis, tant par mer que par terre, ", 2 vol. 4 volumes fol., Paris, chez the Autheur, nd [1667-1694]. Known in successive editions as the Grand Beaulieu, it is a huge collection of maps and plans of sieges, battles and expeditions reign of Louis XIV of France from the Battle of Rocroi to making Namur ( 1,643th - 1,692 ) . Beaulieu, with the help of different writers, produced and published the plates in 1646 . Unfinished at his death it was continued by his niece, Reine des Roches Beaulieu, and her husband with other partners concluding the work in 1694. It includes valuable material on the Reapers' War and on the Nine Years War in Catalonia . The maps and plans of fortifications and terrain of the battlefields that he drew and recorded have led to Beaulieu being considered one of the creators of military topography. see Zacharakis:246/135, for details of the map from the same work.

      Important scientific manuscript, the text of lectures delivered by Rinaldini at the University of Padua, where he served as professor of natural philosophy for 30 years from 1667. Rinaldini had been a close friend of Galileo at Pisa, and was the first to lecture there on his discoveries. As well as discussions of Galileo's work, the present manuscript also contains an account of Rinaldini's own important discoveries, including that of the convection of heat. Among other authors cited and discussed are Brahe, Barrow, Borelli, Boyle, Copernicus, Descartes, Gassendi, Kepler, Riccioli and Torricelli. Rinaldini is an important transitional figure, presenting in this manuscript Aristotelian ideas alongside those of the 'new science' of Galileo and his supporters, to whose circle he belonged.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: Sir Thomas Phillipps (1792 - 1872), with his signature and the catalog number 9608 on the title. Scholar and bibliophile, Phillipps was the most important collector of books and, especially, manuscripts of the nineteenth century, his collection containing some sixty thousand manuscripts at its peak.<br/><br/> "Carlo Rinaldini (spelled Renaldini in the titles of his books, all of which are in Latin), [was] born in Ancona in 1615 to a family that originated in Sienna. After serving as a military engineer in the forces of Urban VIII and Innocent X, he became senior professor of philosophy at Pisa, and also taught mathematics to the young prince, Cosimo. In 1667, on the pretext that the climate of Pisa did not suit him, he obtained permission to depart and took up the chair of philosophy at Padua in December of that year at about twice his former salary, which may explain his preferences as to climate. He stayed there for thirty years and retired to Ancona shortly before his death in 1698" (Middleton, <i>Experimenters</i>, pp. 34-5). Rinaldini knew Galileo personally, and "he was the first to have the courage to lecture at Pisa on the works of Galileo, which had been condemned by the Holy Office, and on the atomistic philosophy of Gassendi, which was suspect because of its derivation from Epicurus. To the Academy [i.e. the <i>Accademia del Cimento</i>] he proposed an experiment to determine whether heat diffuses spherically.... His interpretation of this experiment makes him the discoverer of convection in air. He was also one of those chosen to examine the draft of the <i>Saggi</i>" (<i>ibid</i>.).<br/><br/> The manuscript is divided into three parts, and covers all aspects of natural philosophy, with descriptions of experiments and illustrations of the scientific instruments used. It begins with a detailed analysis of the atomism of Democritus, advocated by Rinaldini's contemporary Pierre Gassendi. Rinaldini accepts these ideas, which form the basis of his particulate theory of matter. This is followed by the most extensive part of the manuscript, devoted to the analysis of the properties of air and of the vacuum. This begins on p. 57, on the last line of which "the eminent philosopher and mathematician" Torricelli is quoted, and the following pages explain at length the experiment performed by Torricelli in 1644 to prove the existence of the vacuum, enriched by illustrations on pp. 62 & 67 depicting the instruments used. On pp. 70-71 are described the famous Magdeburg experiment of 1657, when two plates placed sufficiently close together cannot be separated. Following this are descriptions of the air-pump built by Boyle and Hooke in 1659 and of experiments performed with it. Boyle attended a meeting of the <i>Accademia</i> in 1660 and may have met Rinaldini there. Rinaldini discussed Torricelli's experiments in a famous letter to Boyle of 1 September, 1668 (Boyle, <i>Correspondence</i>, Vol. 4, pp. 91-5). <br/><br/> Rinaldini next considers the nature of the heavens, beginning on p. 236 with the nature of comets. Galileo, who is mentioned on p. 276, incorrectly believed that comets are optical phenomena, and Rinaldini's discussion includes genuine optical phenomena such as the rainbow and parhelia (now known as 'sun dogs'). This is followed by a discussion of 'new stars' on pp. 285-8, including the supernova observed by Tycho Brahe in 1572 and those of 1618 which were the subject of the dispute between Galileo and Grassi. In the second book on the nature of the heavens, Rinaldini considers several 'world systems', ancient, Ptolemaic, Copernican and Brahean. Here he had to be careful, lecturing in a city in which Bishop Barbarigo was Chancellor: his statement that "The greatest innovation was introduced by Nicolaus Copernicus" is quickly followed by "I dare not approve the Copernican system, as condemned by the church." <br/><br/> The remaining parts of the book deal with 'The Elements', i.e. Air, Earth, Fire and Water, and 'On birth and death,' the nature of generation, corruption, constancy and decline. <br/><br/> Rinaldini published two voluminous books on 'Natural Philosophy'. Of his 1681 work <i>Philosophia Rationalis, Naturalis, atque Moralis</i>, only the first part, titled "Tomus Primus," appeared. This first volume was devoted to dialectics, rhetoric, and poetics, and is unrelated to the subjects covered in the present manuscript. His three-volume <i>Naturalis Philosophia</i> (1693-4) covers a range of material similar to that in the manuscript, but at much greater length, amounting to more than 1600 printed folio pages. The present manuscript is presumably a record of lectures given by Rinaldini which he expanded to form the published work. There is absolutely no doubt that the author is Rinaldini: the general style and his quotations from ancient poets and philosophers are clearly identified with those in his published works. The manuscript may well be in Rinaldini's own hand, but we have not been able to establish that beyond doubt. The only internal evidence is a note on p. 154 in which the writer states that he was a student, at a young age, of Antonio Rocco, <i>olim venerandus Praeceptor meus</i> [my revered teacher]. Antonio Rocco (1586 - 1653) was an Italian priest and teacher of philosophy. If the hand is not Rinaldini's, it is presumably that of a student or amanuensis. A candidate for the latter may be Giovanni Battista Sancti, who is described on its title page as the editor of <i>Naturalis Philosophia</i> and as Rinaldini's amanuensis. <br/><br/> Dating of the manuscript is based on the works cited and commented upon, and supported by the watermarks which are similar to those used in the Veneto area in the mid-seventeenth century. <br/><br/> A full transcription and Italian translation is available on request. <br/><br/> Clelia Pighetti, <i>Il vuoto e la quiete</i>, 2005; C.

        Hahnenkamm. Celosia cristata.

      . Gouache, über Bleistiftskizze, auf Bütten. 32,4 x 24,9 cm. Zu den Rändern hin etwas gebräunt. Verso bezeichnet "Kopetzky", vielleicht als alter Besitzvermerk zu verstehen. Der bedeutende Porträtmaler Johann Kopetzky (1667 - 1740) war seit 1723 in Nürnberg ansässig und dürfte die "Dietzschin" persönlich gekannt haben. Der Hahnenkamm ist im tropischen Asien heimisch und wurde um 1570 in Europa eingeführt. Er ist auch heute noch als Zierpflanze verbreitet.. Die aus einer Künstlerfamilie stammende, international bekannte Malerin und Zeichnerin Barbara Regina Dietzsch war die älteste Tochter des Malers, Zeichners und Radierers J.I. Dietzsch (1681-1754). Ihre Ausbildung erhielt sie wie ihre Schwester Margarete Barbara (1726-1795) sowie ihre fünf jüngeren Brüder in der Werkstatt des Vaters. Mehrmals wurde ihr die Position einer Hofmalerin an europäischen Fürstenhöfen angeboten, die sie jedoch immer ablehnte. 1775 hatte sie einen Schlaganfall, der sie jedoch nicht davon abhielt bis 1781 weiterzuarbeiten. Ihr Hauptbeschäftigungsfeld waren die im 18. Jahrhundert beliebten Darstellungen von Vögeln, Insekten, Blumen und Landschaften sowie Jagdszenen und Porträts, die sich durch Detailgenauigkeit und -freude auszeichnen. In Nürnberg, zu dieser Zeit "Hochburg des naturwissenschaftlichen Verlags- und Illustrationswesens" fanden ihre Arbeiten großen Absatz und hatten vorbildhaften Charakter für die naturgeschichtliche Kabinettmalerei.

Première édition continentale de la traduction latine de l'ouvrage de Boyle paru en 1661 sous le titre: "Certain Physiological Essays".

In the 'Essays' Boyle gives the first clear outline of his corpuscular hypothesis concerning the nature of matter, which was to be the guiding principle of all his later chemical studies" (Fulton).
