        Choice and experimented receipts in physick and chirurgery, as also cordial and distilled waters and spirits, perfumes, and other curiosities / Collected by ... Sir K. Digby ... Translated out of several languages by G[eorge] H[artman].

      London:: Printed for the author, and ... sold by H. Brome, 1668.. Small 8vo. [8], 308, [12] pp. Frontispiece portrait engraved by Cross; margins worn. Modern full speckled calf, brown gilt-stamped spine label, raised bands, blind and gilt-tooling, endleaves renewed. Very good. First edition, second issue, issued posthumously. After Digby's death, his assistant [“steward”], George Hartman, issued “three major collections of his medical, culinary and chemical recipes.” (Huston-Rubin p. 46). The first edition was issued in two states with “Printed for the Author” on the title. The second state, adds the bookseller, “H. Brome.” This copy does not include the longitudinal half-title associated with the first issue. “The volume deals mainly with receipts and prescriptions for different ailments, but incidentally there is a little practical chemistry in the preparation of the compounds employed. Among them the product of the destructive distillation of tobacco, which was used for the cure of ulcers, and which even by external application caused sickness, is described.” – Ferguson. ¶ The example of his mad-dog bit recipe was to take ale, treacle, rue, tin shavings, boil together, etc., take two spoonfuls [as needed], “It is excellent for Man or Beast.” (pp. 114-5). ¶ This book contains a plethora of medicinal recipes including rose water (p. 296), oxymel for fevers, cochinile for “purple fever” [“After twice or thrice doing this, and keeping the patient very warm, the disease will break out in spots, and they will escape...” – p. 11]. In another case, treacle [molasses] stewed with white wine for half an hour, is recommended against fever [“ague”] while also being put to bed, cover warm to sweat, the cure will come after two or three applications (p. 13). ¶ Dugan, in her history of perfumes, makes point of the “widespread belief in – and access to – herbs and objects used as aphrodisiacs in the period.” Holly Dugan, The Ephemeral History of Perfume: Scent and Sense in Early Modern England, (p. 220). ¶ Another section offers remedies for pregnant women, “To cause a good delivery in a woman with child” (p. 62) [fry onions in oil till tender, add water, boil, strain, and drink every day for 3 weeks prior to delivery [“women that have had the most dangerous labours till they took this, have no difficulty afterwards”]. A more remarkable recipe is recommended “To bring away the After-burthen, or any Foulness of a Dead-child, and to Cure the After-throws and Griping, after a Woman is delivered.” For this one needs wrinkled inner skins of hen gizzards that are laying eggs, wipe clean, dry, beat to a powder, give with a bit of white wine ... repeat as needed. The poor woman who endured this application “For the breast and belly of women lying in” – take Sperma Caete, pure white virgin-wax, melt together, add wine, heat, and dip in a linen cloth, large enough to cover her torso, a hole for each breast “for the nipples to come out” – then after delivery, “she must put on these” add flax pickled loose to cover, some flax under the arm-holes, etc., all over the belly, etc., and apply every day for eight days, “this shall so preserve, that there is not the least wrinkle or crack in the breast or belly after bearing children” (p. 69). According to Laura Lunger Knoppers, this book contains but one recipe “approved by a woman.” – The Oxford Handbook of Literature and the English Revolution, (p. 518). ¶ Potable gold is an ingredient for a patient suffering from “shaking of hands or feet” while soaking them in a solution including salt, etc. (p. 195-6). Other remedies are for treating the bite of a mad dog, snake bit, burns, mint-water for cooling the stomach, cinnamon water, treatment for deafness, dropsy, “dizziness and swimming in the head”, against bloodshot eyes, extract of poppy flowers, “for the falling-sickness”, gout, gonorrhea, hemorrhoids, king's evil [scrofula], ointments for wounds or sores, numerous applications against fever, oil of pearl for the face, against the plague, against the retention of urine, treatments for spitting of blood, small-pox, toothaches, tobacco aroma influenced with “perfumes” (p. 305), worms in children, removal of warts, and how to convert water into ice in summer (put boiled water in an earthen jug, place in a deep well till it becomes ice, “so that you must break the pitcher to get it out” (p. 307). ¶ A manuscript found at the rear of the volume describes “Walnut water” and gives a recipe to be applied “an [ounce] at a time morning & evening, expels vapours, keeps out infections [promotes] good digestion ... [for] pains in the stomach.” ¶ ESTC R232747; Wing D1424; John Ferguson, Bibliographical Notes on Histories of Inventions and Books; K.

        Itinerario para Parochos de Indios

      Rare first edition. According to Sabin, this is "One of the most interesting accounts of the Indies, their laws, privileges, religion, etc." Peña Montenegro (1596 - 1687) was Bishop of Quito (Ecuador), a position of the outmost importance and influence which granted him access to Spanish policy towards the Indians in the New World and the practical efficiency of the Spanish treatment towards them; Kraus says "(Peña Montenegro) is of the highest importance for the knowledge of the laws regarding the missions among the Indian population: it contains the decrees, rules and regulations for the parish priests as missionaries". The work contains important references of the Missions and the costumes of the natives, reminding the clergy to respect their nature and adapt to their costumes. Peña condemns as a sin accepting a missions without knowing the native language -and thus urging the clergy to learn the local language instead of only promoting the Spanish. The work contains references to tobacco and excessive smoking -extremely early mention-, mining and idolatry amongst others. Provenance, manuscript ownership inscription on title page "Don Juan de Zeballos" and a cancelled inscription. Extremadamente rara primera edición de esta obra fundamental de Americana. Según Sabin, se trata de "Una de la mas interesantes obras referentes a las Indias, sus leyes, privilegios, religión, etc.". Peña Montenegro (1596 - 1687) fue Obispo de Quito, posición de singular importancia e influencia que le ganó el acceso a la política de España hacia los Indios en el Nuevo Mundo y la eficiencia práctica del tratamiento de los Españoles a ellos. Kraus dice, refiriéndose a Peña, que "es de la mayor importancia para el conocimiento de las leyes de las misiones entre la población indiana: contiene decretos, reglas y regulaciones para los sacerdotes de parroquia y misionarios".

Small 8vo (14.5 x 10 cm). Contemporary stiff wrappers covered with brocade paper.

      Cordier, Sinica, col. 912; WorldCat (2 copies); not in Löwendahl; Lust. 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 damaged. Good copy.

Important diplomatic relations man who was a nobleman and a great military on the case of the Valetine to Spain and Switzerland, and that the proposed sister of the King and the Prince of Wales in England marriage. All articles and letters to track realistic monitoring of diplomatic missions (a historical introduction allows each to take the challenge of each embassy): these missions which greatly interested the show France's position with Louis Bassompierres XIII. Upon his return and after taking part in the siege of La Rochelle, he was thrown into the Bastille for 12 years intrigues by Richelieu. It is traditionally accepted that, like his memoirs, these embassies were also written in prison, but it is unclear how such a place, Bassompierres was able to achieve such a work that required extensive research and access to archives, as well as the work seems to be that much of a historian; it bears the mark in its writing and structure; but it has been initiated, to be carried out in collaboration to complete the work memory. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, impression des Elsevier. 4 pages de titre à la sphère dont deux pour L'Ambassade en Suisse.  Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque mouchetée.

Importantes relations diplomatique de celui qui fut un grand seigneur et un grand militaire concernant l'affaire de la Valetine auprès de l'Espagne et de la Suisse, et celle du mariage projeté de la soeur du roi et du Prince de Galles en Angleterre. Ensemble d'articles et de lettres de qui permettent de suivre réalistement le suivi des missions diplomatiques (une introduction historique permet chaque fois de saisir l'enjeu de chaque ambassade) : ces missions qui intéressaient grandement la France prouvent la position de Bassompierre auprès de Louis XIII. A son retour et après avoir pris part au siège de la Rochelle, il fut embastillé durant 12 ans pour intrigues par Richelieu. Il est traditionnellement admis que, à l'instar de ses Mémoires, ces Ambassades furent écrites également en prison, mais on voit mal comment, d'un tel lieu, Bassompierre eut pu réaliser un tel ouvrage qui nécessitait de nombreuses recherches et un accès aux archives, d'autant que l'oeuvre parait grandement être celle d'un historien ; elle en porte la marque dans son écriture et sa structure ; mais elle a pu être initiée, être réalisée en collaboration pour compléter l'oeuvre des mémoires.

        Le Triomphe de la Croix, Contenant Les Trois Etats de la Perfection Chretinne. Dedie a la Reyne [dedication copy bound for the Queen of France]

      Pierre de Bresche; Jacques de Laize-de Bresche, Paris 1668 - The dedication copy bound and dedicated to the Queen of France, Marie-Therese d'Autriche the wife of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Sumptuous full red morocco, all edges gilt, with inner dentelles and marbled endpapers, Marie Therese's arms appear centrally on both boards with her cypher in the corners of the panels and five times in spine compartments with tiny fleur de lys within the triple fillet that forms the panels. A pencilled annotation by the French book collector the Comte de Lignerolles (1817-1893) on the verso of the first marbled endpaper notes the book's status as the dedication copy: a four page dedication to the Queen follows the title page. In her dedication Levesque praises the Queen in typically eulogistic terms for her 'rare Vertu' and the peace that she brings to Spain and France 'par la belle alliance de Vostre tres-haute, tre-illustre, tres devote, & tres-vertueuse Personne, avec le plus grand, & le plus invincible de tous les Monarques, Louis XIV, Roy de France, & de Navarre; Unissant les deux plus brillantes Couronnes de l'Univers'. Intended to bring an end to the war between France and Spain, the marriage in 1660 of Marie Therese ((known in English as Marie Theresa of Spain) and Louis produced an heir but very little happiness for either participant. This dedication by Levesque was made just after one of Marie-Therese's periodic moments of real power when she had assumed a Regency during Louis' absence on war service in 1667. Louis XIV remains one of the most well-known French monarchs due to his lavish lifestyle, many mistresses, political achievements and high self-esteem. He was also responsible for a lavish programme of artistic and cultural patronage including the establishment of academies of arts and science, the pursuit of antiques and treasure across the globe and a vast building programme that included the palace of Versailles. As a consequence Paris became the cultural capital of Europe and Louis and his wife attracted the sort of dedication exemplified in this beautiful book. PROVENANCE: book label on front pastedown: 'Ex Bibliotheca G Nordback'; Inscribed by Comte de Lignerolles; Sotheby's, May 27, 1983, lot 490, £620.

Gassendi's work Philosophiae Epicuri syntagma (Lyon, 1649) had been gaining traction in philosophical circles in Commonwealth and Protectorate England, notably finding publication in a free English translation by Walter Charleton (Physiologia Epicuro-Gassendo-Charltoniana: or A fabrick of science natural, upon the hypothesis of atoms, London 1654) and further exposure in Thomas Stanley's History of Philosophy. Demand was evidently sufficient to provoke Roger Daniel's son-in-law John Redmayne to print this second edition in 1668, the first having appeared in 1660. ESTC R10973, Wing G294. Size: 12mo

      75, [5, all blank], 15 pp. 8vo, attractive modern paste-paper wrappers. Amsterdam: J. Waesberge & the Widow E. Weyerstralt, 1668. First edition of this rare catalogue of the contents of the laboratory and the library of the great chemist Glauber (1604-70), which he was offering for sale due to ill health. This is a fascinating and unique record of the holdings of a mid-17th century chemical laboratory as well as of the scientific books in the library of one of the leading chemists of the period. In 1655, after having studied in chemical laboratories in Paris, Basel, Salzburg, and Vienna, Glauber (1604-70), moved to Amsterdam where he outfitted what was surely the most impressive laboratory in Europe. He "has justly been called the best practical chemist of his day and the first industrial chemist. His instructions for the improvement of laboratory technique were instrumental in preparing the way for the chemical revolution of the next century."-D.S.B., V, p. 419. The first 75 pages describe the contents of the laboratory including pharmacological preparations, numerous chemicals, and apparatus. The final fifteen pages list 42 titles in folio, 38 in quarto, 62 in octavo, and 25 in duodecimo, with an additional 32 titles of unbound 8vo books, including his own publications, all from Glauber's library. Fine copy. ❧ Duveen, p. 259-"Contains a description of apparatus and preparations for sale by Glauber. The list of books at the end is very interesting consisting mainly of books on natural science, published in German and Holland in the first half of the 17th century." Ferguson, I, p. 323-"A very curious and probably unique list." Partington, II, pp. 341-61.

        Garexium

      Amsterdam 1668 - Grande veduta panoramica della città tratta dall'edizione del 1725 de "Il Theatrum Statuum Sabaudiae", raccolta in immagini delle dimore, chiese, luoghi, facenti parte del dominio dei Savoia alla fine del XVII secolo. Impresa editoriale senza precedenti e iniziativa promozionale ante-litteram, il Theatrum Statuum Regiae Celsitudinis Sabaudiae Ducis, Pedemontii Principis, Cypri Regis fu il risultato dell'ambizioso progetto intrapreso dal duca Carlo Emanuele II di Savoia negli anni sessanta del Seicento, perseguito sino al compimento negli anni ottanta dalla duchessa reggente Maria Giovanna Battista di Savoia Nemours. L'opera fu stampata per la prima volta nel 1668 ad Amsterdam, presso la tipografia Blaeu e successivamnete ristampata dalla tipografia Mortier fino al 1725. La pubblicazione è nata sicuramente come manifesto politico del duca di Savoia, per far conoscere alla comunità a alle corti europee il livello raggiunto dai suoi possedimenti. Costituito da due grandi volumi, il Theatrum contiene 145 tavole, con commenti in lingua latina, relative alle città ed alle terre del Ducato, che all'epoca comprendeva Piemonte, Valle d'Aosta, Savoia, Liguria e Nizza marittima. Il primo volume contiene carte geografiche, ritratti, dediche, e vedute della capitale, con piazze, edifici civili e religiosi, ville e castelli, e strutture di difesa dello Stato. Seguivano le immagini delle certose e delle abbazie. Il secondo volume presentava le vedute delle principali città del ducato, le terre della Savoia, del Vercellese e delle altre zone che lo componevano. Incisione in rame, stampata su due fogli, in perfette condizioni. Dimensioni 1007 480mm

        Le Triomphe de la Crois, Contenant Les Trois Etats de la Perfection Chretinne... Dedie a la Reyne [dedication copy]

      The dedication copy bound and dedicated to the Queen of France, Marie-Therese d'Autriche the wife of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Sumptuous full red morocco, all edges gilt, with inner dentelles and marbled endpapers, Marie Therese's arms appear centrally on both boards with her cypher in the corners of the panels and five times in spine compartments with tiny fleur de lys within the triple fillet that forms the panels. A pencilled annotation by the French book collector the Comte de Lignerolles (1817-1893) on the verso of the first marbled endpaper notes the book's status as the dedication copy: a four page dedication to the Queen follows the title page. In her dedication Levesque praises the Queen in typically eulogistic terms for her 'rare Vertu' and the peace that she brings to Spain and France 'par la belle alliance de Vostre tres-haute, tre-illustre, tres devote, & tres-vertueuse Personne, avec le plus grand, & le plus invincible de tous les Monarques, Louis XIV, Roy de France, & de Navarre; Unissant les deux plus brillantes Couronnes de l'Univers'. Intended to bring an end to the war between France and Spain, the marriage in 1660 of Marie Therese ((known in English as Marie Theresa of Spain) and Louis produced an heir but very little happiness for either participant. This dedication by Levesque was made just after one of Marie-Therese's periodic moments of real power when she had assumed a Regency during Louis' absence on war service in 1667. Louis XIV remains one of the most well-known French monarchs due to his lavish lifestyle, many mistresses, political achievements and high self-esteem. He was also responsible for a lavish programme of artistic and cultural patronage including the establishment of academies of arts and science, the pursuit of antiques and treasure across the globe and a vast building programme that included the palace of Versailles. As a consequence Paris became the cultural capital of Europe and Louis and his wife attracted the sort of dedication exemplified in this beautiful book. PROVENANCE: book label on front pastedown: 'Ex Bibliotheca G Nordback'; Inscribed by Comte de Lignerolles; Sotheby's, May 27, 1983, lot 490, £620.

        Les Principes de la philosophie

      It is in 1644 that Descartes wrote in Latin Principia philosophiae, with attention to clarify and give a sound and rigorous basis to philosophy, to erect the unshakable foundations. The first premise of philosophical research, this is the reason, and his method of deduction. The Cartesian project is a project of universal knowledge, not only philosophical. Principia follow the Discourse on Method (1636) and Meditations (1641). The aim of the work is prodigious, Descartes wants to provide a new metaphysics based on the cogito, which creates a new classification of knowledge and a new moral reflection, which it operates by the revolution, gave birth to the Enlightenment .

        Les principes de la philosophie escrits en Latin par René Descartes et traduits en François par un de ses amis. Reveus, & corrigez en cette dernière édition.

      Paris, Théodore Girard, 1668, in 4°, de 28ff.n.ch., 477pp., 1f., ill. de 91 figures sur bois in t. certaines répétées, dont 21 à pl. page, et une grande planche gravée se dépl., pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, appartenance découpée au f. de titre avec restauration ancienne, sinon bel exemplaire. Réédition de l'édition augmentée de 1659. Elle fut partagée entre Michel Bobin, Nicolas Le Gras et Théodore Girard. Les Principia Philosophiae parurent d'abord en latin en 1644, c'est une des oeuvres majeures de Descartes, et le succès en fut considérable. On se souvient que cette oeuvre importante dans l'histoire de la pensée contient en particulier la célèbre théorie des tourbillons. La version française fut en partie faite par son ami Claude Picot, mais elle comporte aussi des additions qui sont de Descartes lui-même. ¶ Guibert Descartes 129/130 - "The principia philosophia contains Descartes'famous vortex theory by which he tried to reconcile Copernican astronomy with biblical teaching. It also contains the first scientific theory of magnetism". "The most comprehensive of all Descartes'works... its three treatises embrace the whole of his philosophy... . Descartes'design in this treatise was the elaboration of a general theory which would account for the creation and the structur of the world. At the outset he scorfully rejected the whole apparatus of qualitates occultae, employed so freely by the scholastics, and in its place he tried to substitute a rational explanation of the phenomena of nature grounded upon human intelligence and erected upon the mathematical model. In this way he indicated the only solid path ever pursued by physical science, namely, its reduction to the laws of mathematics... ". (Scott p. 158) - DSB IV.51
