[NEVILLE, Henry].
20 pp.First complete Dutch edition, very rare, of a remarkable imaginary voyage, to a utopia that became dystopian, published in the same year as the first edition in the original English, The Isle of Pines. A ship of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) discovers a civilisation on western Australian island: the five survivors of an English shipwreck a century earlier (1 man and 4 women) have procreated so successfully that the accidental colony now has 11,000 residents. The present Rotterdam edition includes both parts, while the other two Dutch editions in 1668, the year of the English first edition, include only part 1.Its racy tale of George Pine, shipwrecked with four women on the eponymous island during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, created a publishing sensation in the seventeenth century and became a model for many later fantasies of paradise in the South Seas. It has long been recognised as a significant precursor of the Robinsonnade genre, and specifically of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe itself.The Dutch edition is certainly the most interesting translation/adaptation, since the text purports to describe the discoveries made by a Dutch ship on the Australian coast, and the narrator is supposed to be the Dutch sea captain Van Sloetten. Neville's work was inspired by the tales of VOC wrecks on the coast of western Australia.The present important first complete Dutch edition has always been rare, as in fact are all 1668 editions of Neville's work. Only the State Library of New South Wales has a serious holding, including the only copy in Australia of the present edition. Th … [Click Below for Full Description]

[NEDERDUITSCHE APOTHEEK].
[10], 440 pp, [38] pp.Rare first edition of a collection of pharmacological recipes in Dutch that had no official authorization, published to meet the needs of apprentices and pharmacists with little or no knowledge of Latin (the language of the pharmacompoeia, which were officially authorized by governments or medical or pharmacological associations) and to avoid misuse, quackery and the production and selling of quack remedies. The compilers aim nevertheless to present reliable pharmacological recipes based on the best available sources such as the works of Herman Boerhave (1668-1738) and Etienne Fr. Geoffroy (1672-1731). While some phamacopoeia were translated into Dutch and other vernacular languages, Van der Eyk apparently thought less educated readers also needed a different approach to make the information clear. In 1766 he published a second augmented edition.Corners slightly bumped, slightly soiled and water-stained throughout, not affecting the text. Otherwise in good condition.l STCN (1 compl. & 2 incompl. copies); Vaderlandsche letteroefeningen, 6 (1766), pp. 452-254.

[DANDI, Giovanni Pellegrino].
[8], 56 pp.First and only edition of a rare account on the confinement and death of cardinal Charles Thomas Maillard de Tournon (1668-1710), written by the Italian friar Giovanni Pellegrino Dandi (1664-1726).In 1702 Tournon was appointed by the Roman Catholic church to promote the Catholic faith in China and the East Indies, to establish harmony among the missionaries there and to enforce the decision of the Holy Office against the further toleration of the so-called Chinese rites among the native Christians. He headed for India (Pondicherry) in 1703 and later went to the Coromandel Coast. On 11 July 1704 he set sail for China by way of the Philippine Islands, arriving at Macau on 2 April, and at Beijing on 4 December 1705. The Kangxi Emperor received him kindly at first, but upon hearing that he came to abolish the Chinese rites among the native Christians, he demanded from all missionaries on pain of immediate expulsion a promise to retain these rites. At Rome the Holy Office had meanwhile decided against the rites on 20 November 1704, and being acquainted with this decision, the legate issued a decree at Nanjing on 25 January 1707, obliging the missionaries under pain of excommunication to abolish these rites. Thereupon, the emperor ordered Tournon to be imprisoned at Macau and sent some Jesuit missionaries to Rome to protest against the decree. Tournon died in his prison, shortly after being informed that he had been created cardinal on 1 August 1707. The mission and legation of Tournon is described in detail by Killian Stumpf in his Acta Pekinensia.Spine slightly damag … [Click Below for Full Description]

(PMM)Robert Boyle was one of the most prolific 17th-century chemists known for his contributions to natural philosophy and science. His book 'The Sceptical Chymist' is considered one of the most important books in the field of chemistry. It covers a variety of difficult to understand topics but discusses the properties of fire, earth, air, and water and how they interact with salt, sulfur, and mercury.This Latin edition was published in Rotterdam and was highly influential on future chemistry, most notably being the origin for studies on atomic motion.

HEROLT, Johanna Helena.
Characteristic original watercolour botanical drawing by Johanna Helena Herolt (1668-1728), the eldest daughter of Maria Sibylla Merian and Johann Andreas Graff. It shows a branch of French roses (Rosa gallica) with three large, fully-opened flowers and five buds or partly opened flowers, four ants (one winged) and probably a hoverfly (Syrphidae). She probably drew it in Amsterdam around 1700. Though she still remains in the shadow of her mother, she was a fine flower and insect artist in her own right and there is growing appreciation of her work. Her watercolours, more baroque than her mother's and often with brighter colours, radiate vigour and vivacity: the flowers, painted with intensity in every detail, really come to life. A series of Herolt's works from 1698 in the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Braunschweig includes similar sheets of roses (nos. 10, 26, 28, etc.). Reitsma, p. 135, notes that the prices for the flower watercolours increased with the number of insects.In the finest state of preservation.l Cf. Reitsma, Maria Sibylla Merian & dochters (2008), ills. 103 & 110 (pp. 139 & 147); Wettengl, ed., Maria Sibylla Merian 1647-1717, kunstenares en natuuronderzoekster (1998), p. 85.

BROWNE, Sir Thomas
N.p., 1668. Front hinge partly split, but sound. 12mo (130 x 74 mm). Engraved title. [24], 360 pages. Contemporary vellum. FIRST EDITION IN FRENCH of the famous and influential treatise, Browne's 'Relgio medici,' and the only edition in French until the 20th century. "By turns credulous and skeptical, Sir Thomas Browne is one of the most unusual of the great writers of the seventeenth century... The combination of detachment from the world with fascination with its smallest objects, the style, and the mind which both style and contents reveal, has absorbed the interest of readers of all kinds ever since its first appearance" (Printing and the Mind of Man). The work first appeared in two unauthorized editions in English in 1642.The present edition was translated from Dutch of 1665: "sometimes attributed to Nicolas Le Févre. According to Willems [no. 1784] printed by Blaeu in Amsterdam. La Haye has also been suggested as a place of imprint" (Krivatsky 1852). Keynes 71.

DIGBY, Kenelm.
1668. [6], 146, [8] pp.Second enlarged edition of a popular book containing recipes and prescriptions to treat all kind of pains and diseases, compiled posthumously from Sir Kenelm Digby’s notes and annotations by one of his assistants, George Hartman, who published the book with the consent of Digby’s son in 1668. Many editions followed, including translations in German, French and Dutch.Kenelm Digby (1603-1665) was an English courtier and diplomat, but also a highly reputed natural philosopher and astrologer.After Digby’s death, George Hartman published three major collections of his medical, culinary and chemical recipes, including the present Choice and experimented receipts. His compilations from Digby’s papers are normally catalogued as Digby’s work, although strictly speaking he is not the author. The compilation actually contains Digby’s own recipes, those he got from his friends and those Hartman added. Since the portrait was printed for the book’s publisher and dated one year before the book, it was probably made for inclusion in some copies, but the ESTC appears not to include it in the collation and it is not present in the Huntington copy that can be viewed on EEBO. It was apparently an extra for those who wished to pay for it.Copy presented to Dr. Jackson Fischer by J.F. Payne, London, 19 April 1890. Back hinge fully cracked, some soiling (especially on the title-page) and a hole repaired in pp. 5-6. Still in good condition.l ESTC R10653; D.

LISOLA, François Paul de; Daniel Johannes CAMPRICHT].
1668. [1], 1-15, 17-222, [2]; 47, [1 blank]; [8]; [4] pp.Ad 1: Second edition of a highly interesting collection of letters by some of the key-figures on the European political stage during the years 1668-1672, mirroring the often changing coalitions: from the Triple Alliance concluded in 1668 between the Dutch Republic, England and Sweden in order to restrain the expansionist ambitions and policy of Louis XIV, King of France, ultimately leading to the so-called rampjaar (disastrous year) 1672, when the Dutch Republic was attacked by France, England and the German bishoprics of Munster and Cologne.The first edition of this collection had appeared already in 1672 at Liege and Amsterdam, followed in the same year by an English translation.Ad 2: Remarks made at the court of Leopold I in Vienna, probably by Abraham de Wicquefort (1608-1682), diplomat and friend of Johan de Witt, regarding the position of the Holy Roman Emperor in the war in the Netherlands and his claims on the Southern Netherlands. Ad 3: Laudatory oration by Georges d'Aubusson de La Feuillade (1609-1697), a French Roman Catholic clergyman under Louis XIV who served as Archbishop of Embrun (1649-1668), then Bishop of Metz (1669-1697). Ad 4: Answer by Charles II to the memorandum of the liberal and enlightened Elector-Archbishop of Mainz, Johann Philip von Schönborn (1605-1673), presented to him by one of the Elector’s relatives, Baron (Franz) von Schönborn. In the memorandum the Archbishop had offered mediation between England and the Dutch Republic in order to end the war. A few months later the Archbishop die … [Click Below for Full Description]

[NEVILLE, Henry].
Oprecht verhaal van t Eiland van Pines, en deszelfs bevolking; of laatste ontdekking van een vierde eiland in Terra Australis, Incognita.Rotterdam, Joannes Naeranus, 1668. Small 4to. Old half calf, marbled boards. 20 pp. First complete Dutch edition, very rare, of a remarkable imaginary voyage, to a utopia that became dystopian, published in the same year as the first edition in the original English, The Isle of Pines. A ship of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) discovers a civilisation on western Australian island: the five survivors of an English shipwreck a century earlier (1 man and 4 women) have procreated so successfully that the accidental colony now has 11,000 residents. The present Rotterdam edition includes both parts, while the other two Dutch editions in 1668, the year of the English first edition, include only part 1.Its racy tale of George Pine, shipwrecked with four women on the eponymous island during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, created a publishing sensation in the seventeenth century and became a model for many later fantasies of paradise in the South Seas. It has long been recognised as a significant precursor of the Robinsonnade genre, and specifically of Defoes Robinson Crusoe itself.The Dutch edition is certainly the most interesting translation/adaptation, since the text purports to describe the discoveries made by a Dutch ship on the Australian coast, and the narrator is supposed to be the Dutch sea captain Van Sloetten. Nevilles work was inspired by the tales of VOC wrecks on the coast of western Australia.The present important first complete Dut … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hippocrates chimicus, qui novissimi viperini salis antiquissima fundamenta oftendit ...Hannover, Thomas Heinrich Hauenstein, 1668. With a woodcut device on title-page and a woodcut endpiece on last page.With: (2) TACHENIUS, Otto. Antiquissimae Hippocratiae medicinae clavis manuali experiential in naturae fontibus elaborate, quaper ignem& aquam inaudita method, occulta naturae, & artis, compendiosa operandi ratione manifesta fiunt, dilucidè aperiuntur. Seneca in epistola.Frankfurt, Johann Peter Zubrod, 1669.2 works in 1 volume. 12mo. Contemporary vellum. [40], 270, [1]; 286, [2] pp. Ad 1: second edition of Tachenius's popular work on Hippocratic chemistry. Hippocrates, in the Islamic tradition known as Boqrat, where he is often referred to as "the first codifier of medicine", is often named together with Galen, and their works mainly survived because of the Arabic translations.Ad 2: first edition of Tachenius's work on acid and alkalies which can be seen as an addition to the work above. Heavily influenced by Hippocrates (Boqrat), he claims that acid and alkalies are the two elements of all things, corresponding to the fire and water that according to Hippocrates are in all things. Binding damaged with some wormholes. Foxing throughout and wormholes in the endpapers. Overall a good copy. Ad 1: Krivatsky 11653; cf. A.G. Debus, Chemistry and medical debate: Van Helmont to Boerhaave (2001), p. 114 et passim; ad 2: Krivatsky 11646.

BEHR, Johann von der.
Jena: Urban Spaltholtz, 1668. Quarto (183 x 140 mm). Eighteenth-century calf, skilfully rebacked to style, boards attractively bordered in blind with gilt flower-head tools at corners, gilt edges. Some early underlining in preface. Generally browned as usual due to the paper stock used, small paper repair not affecting text to title fore edge, two small holes in lower blank margin of folding view of Batavia, overall a very good copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece and elaborate emblematic additional title page, 15 engraved plates, the view of Batavia folding. First and only edition of this fascinating account of the East Indies and Persia by a German soldier in the service of the VOC. "Behr enlisted in 1641 and sailed to Batavia about two years later he went on to serve in Java, as well as with the fleet of Johann Maetsuycker on the Malabar Coast. Apart from a voyage to Persia, Behr spent four of his six years with the VOC in Ceylon" (Howgego). The originality of parts of Behr's account have been questioned, with comparisons being drawn with the published journals of Johann Jacob Merklein and with Johann Jacob Saar's record of his service in Ceylon. Behr had returned to Europe in 1650, but his narrative was not published for another 18 years; the most likely explanation for any plagiarism is editorial light fingers rather any lack of authenticity in Behr's own account. He certainly provides an entirely authentic account of the VOC's attack in 1645 on the strategically important island of Kischmisch (Qeshm), which dominated the Strait of Hormuz and had been contested between … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alle de soet-vloeyende poëtische wercken.Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius van Waesberge and the widow of Elizaeus Weyerstraten, 1668. 12mo. With engraving on title-page and 11 engravings in text. Contemporary vellum. [8], 189, [15]; [4], 126; [16], 73, [1 blank] pp. Rare first and only edition of the collected works of the Dutch poet Johan van Dans (active 1636-1668), whose work is neglected in the official Dutch literary histories because of its risqué content. In the introduction the author explains that there might be some occasional lewdness, but that it is all for didactic purposes ("voor het lest, en blindt-hoekt u niet, ofje somtijts een geyl-achtig streeckje vondt, weet dat het tot leerlingh ende merckelijck voordeel, te weten hoe ghy u lieden in alles watter oock in de min voorvalt, sult dragen, ghedaen is"). Danss works are all love songs, love poetry and plays, and teach the presumed male reader all he needs to know about seducing 17th-century Dutch virgins.Some very minor water stains in the foot margins of the first 25 pages and a small piece torn from foot margin of one leaf, otherwise in very good condition.

Epistolae, partim ab auctore Latino sermone conscriptae, partim ex Gallico translatae. Amsterdam, Daniel Elzevier, 1668. 2 volumes bound as 1. 4to. With about 180 woodcut diagrams and other illustrations in the text. 18th-century(?) sprinkled calf. [8], 383, [1 blank]; [4], 404, [4] pp. First Latin edition of Descartes's collected correspondence, edited by Johannes de Raey (1622-1702), professor of philosophy at Leiden University, whom Descartes himself called the best teacher of his doctrines, and translated by Jan Hendriksz. Glazemaker (1619/20-1682). Including descriptions of the experiments he presented to his students to demonstrate principles of physics. Descartes (1596-1650), who revolutionized scientific thought, lived in the Netherlands from 1628 to 1649, teaching for several years at the University of Utrecht. His collected correspondence, Each title-page of the present copy has an inscription in what appears to be a late 17th- or early 18th-century hand: "Ex libris Is newtoni", a twelve-line inscription in French on the back of the first title-page signed "Is newton" and a few short inscriptions in the same hand elsewhere in the book. While it might have been tempting to believe this was Sir Isaac Newton's book, several things argue against that. Isaac Newton is not a common name, yet there are problems with the suggestion that the inscription is simply a forgery. One would expect a forger to at least attempt to imitate Newton's signature and why would a forger write the note in French? So it is possible the book belonged to a different Isaac or Isaiah Newton.

Bologna: Various printers, 1599-, 1668. Bologna: Various printers, 1599-1668. ALL 13 VOLUMES ARE FIRST EDITIONS. Folio: Bound in matching 18th c. vellum over boards, with attractive citron morocco labels, tooled in gold, with very minor soiling. A fine set with minor faults (occ. toning or foxing, a few stains, small repairs, and the like.) A detailed description and images of each volume are available upon request. Illustrated with thousands of woodcuts of animals, plants, minerals, and fantastic "monsters". The accuracy of the images is a result of direct observation of specimens that Aldrovandi collected and housed in his chambers at the University of Bologna. A number of the original woodblocks used for printing the images, and some of the specimens that served as models, are still preserved in the Aldrovandi museum at the University of Bologna.Provenance: This set is from the library of the Terzi family, a noble family of Bergamo, Lombardy, who trace their origins back to the tenth century. The Terzi library was sold at auction in Paris in the second half of XIX century. The Palazzo Terzi in Bergamo is still owned by the family. Over the course of the second half of the sixteenth-century, the brilliant Italian naturalist Ulisse Aldrovandi's sought to carry out an encyclopedic description of the natural world. Given the limits of the science of his day and the difficulty of obtaining accurate descriptions and specimens of animals, plants, and minerals from the four corners of the world, it is staggering how close he came to achieving this objective.

Thomas Hobbes
Original 1668 Latin copy. 1668 Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes (Latin Edition) 1668 Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes (Latin Edition) Name of book: Leviathan sive DeMateria, Forma, & Poteftate Civitis Ecclesiasticae et Civilis (365 pages plus index) Author: Thomas Hobbes Date of publication: 1668 we believe as the revised Latin version. Size: 8-1/4" by 6-1/2" Topic: social contract theory Language: Latin Condition: Recently rebound in a supple dark brown leather and professionally preserved by Octavaye. All pages are present. The title page was missing from the book, so we added in a facsimile title page when we had it restored last year. There is also a light water stain throughout most of the book--about 75%--at the very top near the spine (you can see this in photos 10-12). This is a gorgeous and extremely rare book. This book came from the library at Mount St. Alphonsus Retreat Center in Esopus, NY, which closed in 2011. Serious offers will be considered. Please email if you need more pictures or have any questions. Shipping is through Priority Mail or FedEx insured--your choice. Listing and template services provided by inkFrog.
