         Dissertationes Epistolicae duae, una de Formatione Pulli in Ovo. Altera de Bombyce

      London: Martyn, 1673 & 1669. Second Edition.. full contemporary calf.. Very good; rebacked.. 4to. There are 16 engraved plates. The first edition sheets of both works bound up with a new general title. The first work (G-M #469) is a milestone in the history of modern embryology and was unsurpassed until Wolf's rare treatise at the end of the 18th century. Malpighi's book on embryology was an original work that presented many new and correct ideas. The second work on the silkworm (G-M #293) is the first book dealing with an invertebrate. He developed new dissecting techniques and was responsible for the identification of all the animal's internal structure. In the copy offered here the Epistola to Malpighi from Oldenburg is bound after the title for De Formatione though it belongs with the second treatise. This copy retains the license leaf. Frati p.27; see Adelmann for a lengthy account; G-M # 293 & # 469; Wing M-351; see Norman #1428 & 1429.

         ARBORETUM MATHEMATICUM. [and] ASTROLOGIA SANA, LICITA & NATURALIS

      Dresden: Melchior Bergen, 1669. FIRST EDITION. This is a compendium of astrological information by the court mathematician of the Elector of Saxony, offered here in an appealing, elaborately decorated armorial binding. In this volume, astronomer, astrologer, mathematician, and art historian Tobias Beutel (1627-90) discusses astronomical instruments, solar and lunar eclipses, and the influence of the stars and planets on the natural world and human events. As Robert Collis notes in his history of Western esotericism, Beutel "combined geometrical studies on the position of the planets and the moon with astrological remarks on the horoscopes of reigning monarchs" to produce a "unified perspective connecting the microcosm of 17th century European politics with the cosmic movements in an erudite 'summa' of German Renaissance astronomical and chronological science." He also calculates the latitude and longitude of 500 cities. The woodcuts show the zodiac charts for rulers of the Holy Roman Empire, various German duchies and electorates, and Scandinavian countries; the stages of lunar and solar eclipses; methods for determining the position of the sun, moon, and stars at various times of day; and other tools to assist in casting natal charts. The elaborately decorated binding no doubt previously graced the library of a 17th century German noble, and it is certainly possible that it was made for a presentation copy.. 192 x 150 mm.

A prolific Dutch artist, Berchem often painted in the Italianate style, and became well-known particularly because many of his paintings were reproduced as prints. In 1669 the Elzevier publishing house put out a French Bible, for which they enlisted popular artists to illustrate a frontispiece and maps. The La Sainte Bible appears to have been planned at least a decade before its publication, and was to include 5 maps to illustrate several stories. Berchem worked with Jan de Visscher (1632-1692) and Abraham Blotelingh (1640-1690) as engravers of the five maps.

      (Augsburg, Melchior Küssel, 1669). - Kupferstichkarte von 12 Platten auf Leinwand des 19. Jahrhunderts aufgezogen und auf einem Holzstab des 19. Jahrhunderts montiert. Erste Ausgabe der ersten großen Vischer`schen Landkarte. - Descriptio Austriae S. 126 (Tafel 28). - Georg Matthäus Vischer machte 1666 während eines Aufenthaltes in Andrichsfurt den oberösterreichischen Ständen das Angebot eine Karte des Landes ob der Enns anzufertigen. Im Sommer 1667 begann er mit den Feldarbeiten und der Vermessung, wobei er gleichzeit das Material zu seiner Topographie von Oberösterreioch sammelte. Da er nur wenig Unterstützung der Stände für den Stich der gezeichneten Karte erhielt, betraute er den Augsburger Stecher Melchior Küssel mitdem Kupferstich, der diesen 1669 vollenden konnte. Die Karte im Maßstab von ca. 1 : 150000 zeigt neben dem Gelände auch die Ortschaften in perspektivischer Darstellung, und zwar von Süden aus gesehen. Die vorliegende Karte gilt als die erste autoptisch aufgenommene, großformatige und detaillierte Karte von Oberösterreich und diente einem der universalsten Barockkartographen, dem Venezianer Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718) als Vorbild, der die vorliegende Karte 1692 für seinen `Corso Geografico universale` in verkleinertem Format nachgestochen hat. - Neben dem Wappen von Oberösterreich mit dem Herzogshut zeigen die Kartuschen auch noch Ansichten von Gmunden mit dem Traunsee, des Schlosses Kammer mit dem Attersee, des Schlosses Reichenstein und Waxenberg sowie je eine Szene der Salzverarbeitung und der Eisenverhüttung. - Durch die alte Montage und Aufhängung mit den üblichen Gebrauchspuren.

         Histoire générale des Eglises évangéliques des vallées de Piedmont ; ou Vaudoises. Divisée en deux livres, dont le premier fait voir incontestablement quelle a esté de tous tems tant leur discipline, que sur tout leur doctrine, & de quelle manière elles l'ont si constamment conservée en une si grande pureté, dès que Dieu les a tirées des ténèbres du paganisme jusques à présent, sans interruption, & nécessité de réformation. Et le second traite généralement de toutes les plus considérables persécutions qu'elles ont souffertes, pour la soûtenir, sur tout dès que l'Inquisition a commencé à régner sur les Chrêtiens, jusques à l'an 1664 (.). Le tout enrichi de tailles douces.

      Leyde, Jean Le Carpentier 1669 - 2 parties en un vol. in-folio, titre-frontispice gravé, portrait-frontispice, [17] ff. n. ch. (titre, poésies liminaires, dédicace aux Etats-Généraux des Provinces-Unies, lettre au duc de Savoie, lettre aux Vaudois, préface, table), 211 pp., avec une grande carte à double page, gravée par J. Somer d'après Crasse, et cinq figures dans le texte ; [8] ff. n. ch. (titre de relais, dédicace aux cantons évangélique de la Suisse, préface), 385-[6] pp., avec 29 figures dans le texte (scènes de persécution généralement à mi-page, gravées par Elondts), vélin rigide à rabats, dos lisse refait à l'époque moderne, titre poussé récemment au dos, tranches bleues, gardes refaites (reliure de l'époque). Rousseurs, mais bon exemplaire. Edition originale peu commune de cette importante source sur l'histoire récente des Tables vaudoises des vallées piémontaises sous la souveraineté du duc de Savoie. L'on sait que ces populations, intéressants vestiges de la plus ancienne hérésie européenne subsistante, répandues en différentes régions de la Provence à la Bohême, adoptèrent en partie les idées des Réformateurs du XVIe siècle au Synode de Chanforan dans le Val d'Angrogne (1532), qui décida de la traduction de la Bible confiée à Pierre Olivétan. L'important texte signé par le pasteur Jean Léger (1615-1670) est capital pour la connaissance d'une période de persécution particulièrement intense des communautés réformées vaudoises du Piémont, appellée parfois "Pâques vaudoises de 1655". Cette année-là, en avril, un groupe d'aventuriers menés par des Capucins se livra à des massacres et des atrocités contre les Vaudois des vallées. Réfugié à Leyde où il obtint un poste dans l'Eglise wallone, Léger voulut faire connaître à l'Europe protestante l'ampleur des exactions commises. L'ouvrage eut un grand retentissement, et suscita l'intervention non seulement de Cromwell, ce qui pouvait s'attendre, mais également de Louis XIV, ce qui l'était moins. Les persécutions reprirent en 1686 (sous l'influence de l'Edit de Fontainebleau promulgué dans le royaume voisin), provoquant exils et départs, et ne cessèrent qu'avec l'édit de tolérance de Victor-Amédée II en 1689 et la "glorieuse rentrée" des Vaudois dans leurs vallées.

Manuscript on paper, ff. [10], the first blank, written on rectos only in a flowing calligraphic hand Bound with: DATI, Carlo. Panegirico alla Maesta christianissima di Luigi IXV. re di Francia e di Navarra. [4], 68pp., Florence:all'insegna della stella, 1669 2 works in volume, Florentine presentation binding of red morocco, the covers and spine elaborately gilt, gilt turn-ins and edges A unique volume presented by Carlo Dati Squarcialupi to Frederick Christian, Prince of Poland and of Saxony during his visit to Florence, c. 1739. His dedication, which is given above is followed by a fly-title (Sonetti in lode.), and the six sonnets. The first sings the praises of the prince visiting the libraries and the gallery of Florence 'tra libri, e gemme, e bronzi, e marmi rari', the second sings the praises of the young prince, the third is the sonnet presenting the Panegirico of his uncle (T'offro dunque faconda opera, e fastosa/ In cui l'avo mio asceso in Elicona', the fourth sings the praises of the father of the young man Augustus III of Poland (1696-1763), of whose visit to Florence the fifth sings, and the sixth sings of visits made to Italy, and in particular Florence, by other members of the house of Saxony. Frederick Christian Leopold Johann Georg Franz Xavier (b. Dresden, 5 September 1722 - d. Dresden, 17 December 1763), was successor to his father as Elector of Saxony, but not as King of Poland. An invalid from his birth to the extent that his mother wishes him to resign his rights of succession, he was, a cultured monarch and a keen amateur of music. The author of these sonnets Carlo Dati SquarcialupiCarlo Dati, the uncle (1619-1676) is a well-known and important figure in the annals of Florentine culture and literature. Secretary (from 1663) of the Accademia della Crusca, he was as a young man much interested in science, but his chief claim to fame is his collection of artistic biographies published in 1667and dedicated to Louis XIV. In 1644 he had given a panegyric on Louis XIII of france, and in 1664 one on the great collector Cassiano del Pozzo. He also celebrated the marriage in 1660 of Louis XIV and Maria Teresa of Austria. Louis XIV had in march 1666 awarded him a pension, and it is hardly surprising that in this work he sings the praises of a Louis very much alive, who he terms Luigi ADEODATO ( i.e. given by God), and of his military, naval and artistic triumphs.

Note: Because there is no printed list of plates in this work, the actual location of some of the full-page engravings may differ or not be present. Also, the engraving count may differ between the various copies and editions. These early books were assembled by very young and mostly illiterate "printer's devil." The insertion of the plates were commonly inserted upside down, or omitted by their error. Due to this reason, total print count may vary. On page 220, the one-third engraving: "CHINESE PRIESTS AND MONKS" is upside down. There is a pagination error from page 184, where the page numbers skip to page 205 and continue onward. This simply means an error in the numbering the pages, nothing is missing or lacking. Part one properly ends at page 327.There are a few of the usual "printer's devil" feint inky finger prints in the margin of a few pages. By and large the books is exceptionally clean and free from any or other marks, blemishes and issues.

HISTORTIC IMPORTANCE: This grand-scale Deluxe and RARE work was one of the earliest English language texts which brought new and wondrous information to England and Europe, of a continent mostly unknown at that time. China was a distant and closed nation, and only a few early Jesuits were allowed access to the interior. THE EMBASSY: This embassy was Europe's first attempt to open China to the west. A truly superb and marvelous primary resource. Stunning, documenting an important beginning in European contact and diplomatic history with China. Books of this period, size, and caliber have now become exceptionally scarce, and seldom found complete in excellent condition. WHO WAS JAN NIEUHOFF [1618-1672], THE DUTCH EXPLORER: Jan [John in English] Nieuhoff was the steward, chronicler and draftsman for the first Dutch embassy to China. In the mid-17 century, the Dutch were at the height of their power and decided to gain access to China and a share of the Chinese trade. After a great deal of Chinese opposition, the Dutch did manage to succeed in sending some merchants to test the trade waters of Canton. The drawings during Nieuhoff's travels of both Canton and Peking were also later used to produce the first engravings of China to be published in England. Interesting insights to both the Dutch and Chinese world views are revealed in the text. It took the Dutch embassy a long while to convince the Chinese that they had any homeland at all. The Chinese had been convinced they were sea nomads ! The lack of success of the Dutch was really a result of Portuguese Jesuit intrigues and had little to do with the behavior of diplomatic skills of the Dutch. This is a rich and revealing primary resource that reports on the important meeting between East and West. Quoted from Dunne [see below] : "Interesting is Nieuhoff's description of the Shun-chih Emperor as he saw him at the imperial audience where the Dutchmen were received together with an embassy from the great Mogul'A young man, white of skin, of medium size; rather plain, wearing a vest which seemed woven from gold." page 348. Adam Schall was also present at this historic meeting and he spoke to the Dutchmen in German.

      Gebonden in perkament, (42)+650 pag., geillustreerd. C1030."Rotterdam Bibliopolis, pag. 126, nr. 170; Haitsma Mulier/van der Lem 228 a; Fruin, Verspr. Geschr. VII, pag. 470 e.v. Uitgebreide en verbeterde versie van het boekje uit 1669, met nieuwe (en betere) prenten. Het 'tweeden druk' op de titelpagina slaat op deze druk uit 1669. Naeranus achtte de tekst blijkbaar te verschillend van zijn uitgaven uit 1648 en 1658 om ook die als vroegere drukken mee te tellen. Er bestaan ook exemplaren met het jaartal 1670 op de titelpagina en met vermelding derde, vierde (Rotterdam Bibliopolis, pag. 126, nr. 171) en vijfde druk, maar dit waren waarschijnlijk titeluitgaven van de drukken uit 1669 en 1670. In het hier aangeboden werk een gegraveerde titelpagina met een afbeelding van Oldenbarnevelt zittende in zijn cel, schrijvend aan zijn 'verantwoording' met de knecht Jan Francken op de achtergrond; voorts portretten van Oldenbarnevelt, Hoogerbeets en De Groot (door H. Bary naar M. Mierevelt); een ongesigneerd portret van Van Ledenberg; de bekende uitslaande prent van de executie van Oldenbarnevelt en een prent van het lijk van Van Ledenberg in een doodskist aan een galg (de beide laatste prenten ook ongesigneerd). Niet alleen het verhaal van knecht Francken is nieuw in deze druk, maar ook enkele deductiën van Oldenbarnevelts hand. Fruin deelt nog mee dat door de 'waarschouwinge' van Naeranus uit 1670 het boekje van Van der Straten slecht verkocht, waarop deze besloot om grotendeels dezelfde tekst onder een nieuwe titel en bij een andere uitgever (Jan Heindrikze te Rotterdam) als zogenaamde derde druk uit te brengen. Fruin concludeert dat 'alleen de eerste uitgaaf in 4°, van 1648, geschiedkundige waarde heeft'. Wij zouden dat graag willen corrigeren: de titeluitgave van 1658 is aan het slot completer dan de uitgave uit 1648 en is als zodanig te prefereren. Het boekje uit 1670 van Naeranus, dus de zogenaamde tweede druk, geeft in een aantal bijlagen tal van nadere bijzonderheden en heeft -weliswaar in mindere mate- toch zeker ook historische waarde."
