        Les merveilles des Indes orientales ou nouveau traitte des pierres precieuses & perles, contenant leur vraye nature, durete, couleurs & vertus: chacune placee selon son ordre & degre, suivant la cognoissance des marchands orfevres, le tiltre de l'or & de l'argent, avec augmentation a plusieurs chapitres, les raisons contre les chercheurs de la pierre philosophale & souffleurs d'alquemie, et de deux autres chapitres du prix des diamans, & des perles.

      Paris, C. Lambin, (1668-)1669.. 4to. (8), 152 pp. With engr. portrait frontispiece of Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans and numerous pretty woodcut initials and tailpieces. Contemp. richly gilt calf, gilt dentelle central cover decoration showing the Sacred Heart of Jesus, gilt spine on five raised bands (upper spine-end and corners repaired). Marbled pastedowns.. Second, enlarged edition of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East and West Indies, written by a Parisian "marchand orphevre" in Paris and first published in 1661. Both editions are dedicated to "La Grande Mademoiselle" Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans, Duchess of Montpensier and niece of Louis XIII, with her finely engraved portrait, which is here more delicately executed (by Nicolas de Larmessin, in 1664). The large chapter devoted to pearls and pearl fishing cites the Persian Gulf and several specific places there as among the main locations of pearl fishing: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus & Bassora: aupres de Baroyn [i.e., Bahrain], Catiffa, Iuffa, Camaron, & autres lieux de ce Golfe [...]" (p. 68). This chapter is here "augmented with an appendix which recounts the history of the Spanish conquest in the New World and additionally gives remarks on pearl fisheries, natural history, and production [...] New chapters comprise Ch. 17, on the pricing of diamonds according to size and quality, and Ch. 18 on pricing of pearls. In tems of substance, this edition [the second one, here offered] is considerably superior to the first; both are rare" (Sinkankas p. 97f.). It is these new, additional chapters in particular for which this second edition is sought after "Du prix des Diamans" and "Du prix des Perles", as well as one entitled "Raisons contre les chercheurs de la Pierre Philosophale & souffleurs d'Alquemie. Et ne sera pas mal a propos de parler de Nicolas Flamel sur ce sujet". - Lower spine-end and corners somewhat bumped, otherwise fine. A good copy in an appealingly decorated contemporary French binding. - Sinkankas 593. Duveen 71. Sabin 4957. Brunet VI, 4780. Graesse I, 348.

        La Religion du Medecin

      s.e. (ma Joan Blaeu) 1668 1^ edizione francese, in 16° (130 x 75 mm), pp. (24), 360, leg. di tipo olandese in p / perg. coeva con unghie, tit. manoscr. al ds., antip. incisa in rame raffigurante un uomo che precipita da un dirupo in mare, salvato da una mano che scende dal cielo con il motto ?a coelo salus?, la pag. 321 / 322 (O5 del registro) risulta posposta con la pag. 327 / 328, ma per il resto ottimo esemplare. Si tratta dell?opera più conosciuta di Thomas Brown (1605 - 1682), medico e antiquario inglese. La Religio Medici è un?opera apologetica, redatta contro le accuse di ateismo, ma è anche un importante saggio su vari argomenti esoterici (magia, apparizioni, demoni, pietra filosofale, ecc.), argomenti dei quali l?autore fu accusato di esserne un appassionato cultore. Circolò inizialmente manoscritta tra gli amici dell?autore, e nel 1642 apparve un?edizione non autorizzata che fu causa di molte controversie per alcune speculazioni non ortodosse sulla religione. Un anno dopo venne pubblicata un?edizione autorizzata, con il testo espurgato. Nonostante i cambiamenti apportati, le polemiche non cessarono e, nel 1645, l?opera venne inclusa nell?Indice dei libri proibiti. Rarità, presente in sole 2 biblioteche italiane (fonte ICCU). Cfr.: Printing and the Mind of Man n.131; Willems, 1784; Brunet I, 1281; Caillet I, 1707.

The descriptions of natural history are interspersed with ethnographical musings, homeopathic advice on folk medicines and the history of European exploration and expansion, both actual and fabulous.The three books of this vast work treat of the natural history, the customs, and the curiosities of the East and West Indies, and the Americas, 'with many very curious details' (Sabin), as curious as speculations about which animal might triumph in a fight between a tiger and a dragon, the anatomy of mermaids and mermen, or the habits of the flying tortoises of China. One of its delights is the extraordinary series of detailed plates, including two views of Batavia (founded 1623) showing the harbour packed with junks, packets, and exclusively Dutch ships.Erasmus Franz (or Franciscus), was born in Lübeck in 1627 and died in Nuremberg in 1694. A polymath, he is best known for his indefatigable collecting of all sorts of folklore, natural history and ethnography; his massive studies, often published under coy pseudonyms, were bestsellers in seventeenth-century Europe. It is said that his career as a writer was forced upon him after he broke both his legs in a bad fall and so took a position with the publishers Endter.As the work itself shows, Franz was knowledgeable about ancient and modern voyages and travels alike. One of the most interesting aspects of this publication is the 6-page preface listing the 'works consulted', which shows that he was able to access an amazing variety of published and manuscript material. Thus, works such as Caesar's De Bello Gallico, the Jewish histories of Flavius Josephus or the work of Pomponius Mela are listed alongside German editions of Thomas Cavendish and Francis Drake, or Latin editions of Columbus, Vespucci, Desiderius Erasmus, and the Cosmographia of the cartographer Sebastian Munster.Because of the work's scope, it is frequently cited by histories and bibliographies of the period. Borba de Moraes, for example, marvelled that the 'bibliography is quite complete, and for Brazil contains a considerable number of the books published up to that time, with the exception of Portuguese works'.

CON LICENCIA: [filete] EN MADRID: Por Mateo Fernandez, Impressor del Rey nuestro señor. || A costa de Gabriel Leon, Mercader de Libros. 6 hojas + 353 folios + 3 hojas El texto cervantino impreso a doble columna. Las dos partes en un solo tomo, con paginación foliada consecutiva. Tablas de los capítulos al final de cada una de las dos partes. Ejemplar magníficamente restaurado, encuadernación moderna en pergamino a la antigua y con rotulación al estilo de la época en el lomo. Falta parte de la primera portada, así como la tasa, que lleva fecha de 22 de marzo de 1668, y la parte final de la licencia, otorgada ¿por una vez¿ el 10 de enero de 1668. Todo lo que falta, restaurado y facsimilado sobre papel del siglo XVII. (A lo largo del Seiscientos se sucedieron las ediciones españolas del Quijote con gran aceptación del público lector a juzgar por el número: al menos, 9 de la primera Parte entre 1605 y 1611; 3 de la segunda Parte en 1615 y 1616; y 13 ¿legales¿ de la obra completa entre 1617 y 1697. La que ofrecemos, de 1668, podría considerarse la 7ª edición de la Primera y Segunda parte juntas. La Segunda está fechada en 1662 porque el impresor no se molestó en corregir el año de la edición que le había servido de modelo. Todas las ediciones del siglo XVII son hoy estimadísimas, ya que rara vez se encuentran en catálogos de librería anticuaria y de subastas. Hay ejemplares registrados en Barcelona: Central; Londres: Brithis Museum; Madrid: Academia Española, Academia de la Historia y Biblioteca Nacional; Nueva York: Hispanic Society; y Washington: Congreso. La obra está documentada y descrita en los principales repertorios bibliográficos: Palau, Simón Díaz, Rius, Seris, Río y Rico, Givaud, etc. El impresor, Mateo Fernández, firmó como tal de 1657 a 1672. Trabajaba en la Imprenta Real como oficial mayor desde 1635. Fue en 1658, al morir Bernardo Junta, cuando quedó al frente de la imprenta. Desde 1662, firma ya como ¿Impresor del Rey¿. En ocasiones, como en la segunda Parte de este Quijote, no utiliza el pie de impreta de la Real, por lo cual se supone que contaba, además, con taller propio.) (Cervantina) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        DESCRIPTION EXACTE DE TOUT CE QUI S'EST PASSÉ DANS LES GUERRES ENTRE LE ROY D'ANGLETERRE, LE ROY DE FRANCE, LES ESTATS DES PROVINCES UNIES DU PAYS-BAS, & L'EVESQUE DE MUNSTER

      Amsterdam: Jacques Benjamin, 1668.. 241,[2]pp. Numerous in-text engravings. Small quarto. Later half vellum and marbled boards. Scattered dampstaining, else very good. The most complete and detailed contemporary account of the Anglo-Dutch war from 1664 to 1667, when the Treaty of Breda brought it to an end. This work was first published in Dutch in 1667, although this first French edition of the following year probably made the information much more generally available. It is of particular American interest for the description of the loss of New Netherland, giving an account of the capture of New York and the surrender of Netherland, of which this and the preceding Dutch version are the first published accounts. It also prints a list of vessels and goods captured by the British in America, and accounts of De Ruyter's voyage to the West Indies, affairs in Barbados, the war in Europe, and the capture of Surinam by the Dutch.

      Lyon, chez Pierre Compagnon, 1668 - Lyon, chez Pierre Compagnon, 1668 ; in-12, (36), 290 (en fait 288) pp. et 58, (1) pp., portrait de l'auteur gravé sur bois au verso du titre, vélin de l'époque restauré, avec plats en cartonnage moderne, dos muet, rousseurs éparses, bon exemplaire. Edition originale très rare. Elle manque au catalogue de la Bibliothèque Nationale et le Catalogue Collectif de France ne recense que 3 exemplaires. L'auteur donne une traduction des aphorismes d'Hippocrate avec une nouvelle interprétation à la lumière des doctrines et des découvertes de l'époque, notamment celle de la découverte de la circulation. Ces Aphorismes sont suivis d'un second ouvrage avec titre et pagination particuliers intitulé "Le Médecin Charitable abrégé." , destiné à un vaste public. Cet ouvrage est orné du portrait de Meyssonnier, au côté duquel figure un symbole alchimique (pentagramme droit). Lazare Meyssonier (1602-vers 1672), né à Macon, étudia la médecine à Montpellier et exerça à Lyon, comme médecin, alchimiste et astrologue. Ouvrage manquant à Caillet (Manuel Bibliographique des Sciences Psychiques ou Occultes) et à Dorbon (Bibliotheca Esoterica), qui citent d'autres ouvrages de l'auteur. cf. C. Ferran, Lazare Meyssonnier, Bulletin de la Société française d'histoire de la médecine, 1935, n° 29, pp. 179-208 : En 1658 Meyssonnier publie sa traduction des aphorismes d'Hippocrate, innovation qui n'est guère du goût de Guy Patin ; ce livre, dédié à Vallot, médecin du roi auquel le lie dit-il dans sa préface une amitié de plus de quarante ans est suivi de la clef des aphorismes d'Hippocrate où il évoque les questions les plus curieuses de physiologie et cherche à faire comprendre leur utilité dans les sciences médicales. Il y a ajouté son Médecin charitable, abrégé destiné aux chirurgiens, aux apothicaires des villages, aux hôpitaux publics, où il met des recettes peu coûteuses à la portée de tous, préférant voir les pauvres gens se soigner ainsi que de les abandonner aux tromperies des charlatans et des empiriques qui pullulaient à cette époque."
