HOBBES, THOMAS. - [CONTAINING THE EDITIO PRINCEPS OF THE LATIN TRANSLATION OF "LEVIATHAN"]
Amsterdam, Apud Ioannem Blaeu, 1668. 4to. All eight parts bound in two excellent, contemporary full vellum bindings with yapp edges and neat handwritten titles to spines. Some sections of leaves quite browned, due to the paper quality, but the greater part of the leaves (and all the plates) is crisp and bright. An excellent copy. Woodcut printer's device to title-page, woodcut initials an vignettes, woodcut and engraved text-illustrations (diagrams). (4) pp., folded engraved portrait of Hobbes (W. Faithorne sculp)folded, 40 pp. + pp. 40,b-m, pp. 41-44 + 2 plates; 146 pp. + 1 blank + 1 plate; (8), 261, (1) pp. + 1 blank + 13 plates; 86 pp. + 1 blank + 8 plates; (16), 174 pp. + 1 blank; 42 pp. + 1 blank + 1 plate; 64 pp + 5 plates; (4), 365, (15 - Indices, incl. errata and "Scripturae Sacrae") pp. + 1 blank. - I.e. fully complete, with all 30 folded, engraved plates (depicting diagrams), all half-titles, and all blanks. Conforming exactly to the Macdonald&Hargreaves collation (our copy without the "Quadratura Circuli", which, according to Macdonald&Hargreaves, is "probably a later insertion", but which "is included in some copies and has a title-page of it's own". Copies without this part, which does not actually belong to the edition, are early and more desireable. Most copies have this later inserted part and thus 31 plates). ¶ The extremely scarce first edition of the first collected edition of Hobbes' works, being the most desirable, the most sought-after and by far the most important. It is to this collected edition that one still refers when quoting Hobbes' works academ … [Click Below for Full Description]

ERASMUS DESIDERIUS ROTERODAMUS
typis Danielis Elzevirii, 1668. Cm. 11, pp. (8) 589 (3). Con bel frontespizio elzeviriano inciso finemente in rame. Classica legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli ms. al dorso e piccole unghie. Trascurabile alone limitato a poche carte, minima abrasione al frontespizio, macchiette alla legatura. Esemplare ben conservato. I Colloquia erasmiani rappresentano molteplici istanze. Innanzitutto l'insegnamento del latino con l'arguzia di Erasmo che si manifesta nell'inventare esercizi e nel trovare giochi di parole a scopo didattico; promuovere la cultura classica come modello nella vita rinascimentale e infine diffondere un pamphlet religioso attraversato da echi riformistici. Il Libellus colloquiorum fu un ambizioso progetto pedagogico che formò l'Europa per i successivi tre secoli e nel contempo un'opera letteraria di taglio satirico che irritò i potenti e i teologi per un periodo altrettanto lungo.

SANTINELLI BARTOLOMEO.
Romae, Apud Success. Mascardi, 1668. In 8°, cart. coevo; pp. (16), 139, (5). Ex libris autografo sul foglio di guardia di Ludovico Laurenri “Phil. et Medici Bonon.”, da identificarsi quasi certamente con l’autore dell’operetta “Il sole in deliquio. discorso astro – fisico.” pubblicato a Bologna nel 1684. Prima edizione. A seguito della prima trasfusione umana, praticata dal medico reale Jean Denys nel 1667, in tutta Europa si aprì un importante dibattito scientifico sulla materia, anche a seguito dell’esito fallimentare di alcuni di questi primi esperimenti. Quello del romano Bartolomeo Santinelli è uno dei più lucidi interventi pubblicati nelle prime fasi della disputa. Pur giungendo a conclusioni negative sulla pratica dilungandosi, oltre che su precise indicazioni tecniche e scientifiche, anche sulle implicazioni di carattere morale, religioso ed etico, le sue argomentazioni tendevano ad indirizzare il dibattito scientifico su principi di prudenza, auspicando una limitazione delle trasfusioni in attesa di una acquisizione di conoscenze tecniche e scientifiche maggiori. De Renzi, IV, 187. Castelnuovo – Menici – Fedi, “La donazione in Italia”, (2011), pagg. 13 e segg. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Holtzhammer, Christian.
Seltenes spätbarockes Andachts- und Gebetbuch. Über den Autor Christian Holtzhammer ist nur wenig bekannt. Auf der ebenfall bei Felßecker gedruckten Erstausgabe von 1668 bezeichnet es sich als "Sanctissimae Theologiae Studiosus" ("Ss. Th. St."). In Gottl. Friedrich Ottos "Lexikon der seit dem funfzehenden Jahrhundert verstorbenen und jetzt lebenden Oberlausizischen Schriftsteller." (Görlitz 1802) ist er als "Platzmeister oder Leichenbesteller in Görlitz, der in der zweyten Hälfte des 17ten Jahrhunderts lebte" (Bd. 2, S. 165) verzeichnet. In der Tat ist Holzhammer hauptsächlich als Autor mehrerer Leichenreden von Görlitzer Bürgern hervorgetreten. Von den hübschen, teils emblematischen Kupferstichen sind die ersten beiden mit "J. Keyl del." bezeichnet. Keyl (Kulmbach 1649 - Bayreuth 1719) war 1688 nach Nürnberg gezogen, wo er hauptsächlich als Vorzeichner für Kupferstiche arbeitete (Nürnberger Künstlerlexikon, München 2007, Bd. 2, S. 773). Der beigebundene Titel "Buß-ächtzende . Sulamithin" ist fester Bestandteil der Ausgabe, stammt aber nicht von Holtzhammer. Der Band enthält bekannte Kirchenlieder von Samuel Rodius ("Was Gott thut, ist wohlgethan"), Johann Heermann etc. Die Seiten 33 - 48 enthalten "Communion-Ordnung, oder ein kurtzer Bericht und Anzeig, wie das Heilige Nachtmal . in der Kirch-Versammlung zu Nürnberg . pflegt gehalten zu werden. - Es fehlen die Seiten 215 bis 218. Papier durchgängig gering gebräunt u. gelegentlich etwas stockfleckig, die ersten 10 Blatt mit leichtem Wasserrand. [Attributes: First Edition]

1668. Figures of several bones: thigh, jaw and foot. The accompanying Latin descriptive text page contains: A. Dextrum femur ., C. Maxilla inferior ., I. Pedi subjacet humerus, . Engraving / etching on verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Description: This old antique medical anatomy print originates from Andreas Vesalius collected works: "Opera omnia anatomica & chirurgica", edited by Ed. H. Boerhaave (1668-1738) & B.S. Albinus (1697-1770), Leiden, published by J. du Vivie and J. & H. Verbeek, 1725. This work is appreciated for its beauty and careful preparation in which the human figures which are placed in classical poses and landscapes, while the display of the structures are based on Vesalius' direct observations during five years of dissection at Padua. Its contemporary impact was enormous. It was almost instantly relegated to history and the way was open for the development of modern medicine. At this point we still carry most of the plates from this famous and exceedingly rare work. Each plate comes with the corresponding print index if applicable. Please inquire if you are looking for a specific themes not exhibited in our ebay shop or website.Artists and Engravers: Andreas Vesalius / van Wesel / Wezel (1514-1564) was a Belgian / Flemish anatomist, physician, and author of one of the most influential books on human anatomy, De humani corporis fabrica (On the Structure of the Human Body).

MILTON, John
London: Printed [by Samuel Simmons], and are to be sold by Peter Parker; and by Robert Boulter; and Matthias Walker,, 1668. Small quarto (173 x 126 mm). Sometime skilfully rebound to style in old sprinkled sheep, unlettered, double blind rules. Housed in a brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Without the initial blank. Margins trimmed without text loss though touching top rule border on a few leaves, contents generally clean, title leaf with single tiny wormhole at top, bottom edge slightly shaved, and fore edge reinforced on verso, overall very good. First edition, with Amory's first issue title page. The bibliographer Hugh Amory argues for this being the earliest issue of the first edition of Paradise Lost (despite its title page, dated 1668), in which the anonymous author is identified only by his initials, "J.M." This is the same form by which the author is identified in the Stationers' Register, 20 August 1667. Amory speculates that Samuel Simmons, the printer and publisher of the first edition, decided against using Milton's full name on the title page "as the day of publication approached", substituting this version on which the author remained anonymous. Simmons's faltering confidence is understandable because Milton, a prominent supporter of regicide (specifically the execution of Charles I), was still widely regarded as a dangerous radical when Paradise Lost was first published. 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 whic … [Click Below for Full Description]

The 1666 first edition, which this replaces, was almost entirely destroyed by the Great Fire of London. The attractive engravings depict dignitaries and persons of various ranks in their costumes, also including the illustration of a turban. The loss of the frontispiece is to some degree extenuated by the fact that it merely showed a repeat of the engraving on fol. B2v (Sultan Mehmed IV on his throne). - Corners bumped. Some foxing, but still a good, prettily bound copy. Provenance: bookplate of Stefanos Karatheodoris, a Greek Phanariote diplomat in Ottoman service and father of the mathematician Constantin Carathéodory. Blackmer 1463. Wing R2413. Weber II, 326.

In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), … [Click Below for Full Description]

ERASMUS DESIDERIUS ROTERODAMUS
typis Danielis Elzevirii, 1668. Cm. 11, pp. (8) 589 (3). Con bel frontespizio elzeviriano inciso finemente in rame. Classica legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli ms. al dorso e piccole unghie. Trascurabile alone limitato a poche carte, minima abrasione al frontespizio, macchiette alla legatura. Esemplare ben conservato. I Colloquia erasmiani rappresentano molteplici istanze. Innanzitutto l'insegnamento del latino con l'arguzia di Erasmo che si manifesta nell'inventare esercizi e nel trovare giochi di parole a scopo didattico; promuovere la cultura classica come modello nella vita rinascimentale e infine diffondere un pamphlet religioso attraversato da echi riformistici. Il Libellus colloquiorum fu un ambizioso progetto pedagogico che formò l'Europa per i successivi tre secoli e nel contempo un'opera letteraria di taglio satirico che irritò i potenti e i teologi per un periodo altrettanto lungo.

Weyerstraet, 1668.First edition, second issue with the title dated 1667 (one year after the first issue). 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. He was a keen observer and a persevering and successful experimenter and inventor.Glauber's writings on Paracelsus' famous prophecy, based on planetary conjunctions, that Elias Artista (Elias the Artist) would appear in 1603 and renovate the arts and sciences, teach the transmutation of all the metals, and reveal many other things. Glauber prophesied that Elias Artista would arrive sometime after his own death.Fine copy.❧ Partington, II, pp. 341-61 & no. 28.

(fautes à corriger et privilèges), Sur la page de garde, est écrit à l?encre ?A Madame de Lhopital Donné à la maison des filles de la Mère de Dieu? reliure pleine basane marbrée, dos avec cinq nerfs, entrenerfs ornés, coiffes, reliures et coins usés, sinon pages en bon état, L?ouvrage est dédié à son Altesse Sérénissime Madame la Princesse de Conty. Il s?y trouve une splendide gravure de Chauveau sur cuivre montrant Job malade et tourmenté par le diable. C'est le premier ouvrage de ce bénédictin qui occupa d'importantes fonctions au sein de la congrégation de St Maur. Oublié de nos jours, et certainement à tort, le Cerf de la Viéville voyait en lui (1726) un poète de premier ordre, appréciation qu'il faut certes atténuer, sans toutefois ôter à Morillon les mérites qui lui reviennent : une certaine simplicité et une grande pureté de son langage, des vers plutôt bien tournés et qui rendent bien leur sujet. Chaque chapitre du livre de Job est précédé d'un argument, le texte original latin apparaît dans les manchettes. La dédicace à la princesse de Conty, tout récemment veuve est suivie de la préface et de plusieurs poèmes dédiés à Morillon et à son livre de différents auteurs, .
