        De lapide animali, Oder von dieser animalischen Materi, oder Subjecto. Welche Gott im Paradeis dem Adamo und Evae als ein Göttliches Patrimonium oder Mitgaabe eyngepflantzet... Was es eigentlich für ein Materi sey, unnd wie eine wahre universal Medicin darauß bereitet werden könne.

      Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1669.. (15 x 9 cm). 60 (4w) S. Rückenbroschur in moderner Leinwand-Kassette.. Einzige Ausgabe. - "Darin sucht Glauber nun das große Geheimnis in den 'superfluen' der Menschen und Tiere. Gemeinsam mit anderen Alchimisten glaubt er, daß in den faeces, dem Urin, den Nägeln, Haut und Haaren der Menschen, den Klauen und Hörnern der Tiere die 'vis vitalis' stecke. Eine Überlegung übrigens, die Brand zur Entdeckung des Phosphors führte. Glauber lehrt, aus Wolle und Horn eine 'Tinktur' zu bereiten, und wurde damit zum Entdecker des Kaliumnitrats, das noch lange in der Medizin in weingeistiger Lösung unter dem Namen 'Tinctura Nitri Glauberi' bekannt und verwendet war. Glaubers Gedankengänge bewegen sich hier in gerader Linie von der mittelalterlichen Dreckapotheke zu Gedankengängen, wie sie auch noch in neuerer Zeit bei Wundärzten und Kurpfuschern zu finden waren. Denkt man allerdings an die vielen Inhaltsstoffe, die die neueste Chemie aus diesen 'superfluen' herausgeholt hat, so muß man sagen: Glauber ahnte vieles, was er nicht erforschen und beweisen konnte" (Gugel). - Stellenweise leicht stockfleckig bzw. gebräunt, sonst wohlerhalten. - VD17 1:641041W; Gugel 28; Dünnhaupt 31; Duveen 259; Rosenthal BMP 368; Neu 1653; Krivatsy 4778; Brüning 2196

Premiere edition autorisee du premier ouvrage du chevalier de Mere, avec le privilege du 19 decembre 1668. Une edition incomplete et fautive avait paru a la date de 1668, sans le consentement de l'auteur qui la fit retirer. L'ouvrage, qui est presente sous forme de six "conversations" entre Mere et le marechal de Clerambault, a ete compose pour appuyer la candidature de ce dernier au poste de gouverneur du Dauphin. Il contient un programme d'education du prince et developpe les themes qui resteront familiers a Mere. Armes de France en marque au titre, bandeaux, lettres ornees et culs-de-lampe graves sur bois.

        Les merveilles des Indes orientales ov Nouueau 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, Auec 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.

      1669. Paris, C. Lambin, 1669. 4to. (22 x 16cm). pp. (8), 152, with 1 engraved portrait. Contemporary calf, covers with large floral gilt centrepiece within broad gilt borders, richly floral gilt spine with 5 raised bands and gilt lettering (corners slightly rubbed). Sinkankas 593; Duveen 71. Second, enlarged edition (the first appeared in 1661) of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East- and West-Indies, written by a 'Marchand Orphevre' in Paris. Both editions are dedicated to 'a Mademoiselle' (i.e. Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans) with her engraved portrait, which is more delicately executed (by N. Larnessin) in the above edition. Moreover the second edition is more interesting and wanted because of the additional chapters: Du prix des Diamans, Du prix des Perles, Contre les chercheurs de la pierre philosophale & souffleurs d'Arquemie, Raisons contre les cherchevrs de la Pierre Philosophale & souffleurs d'Alquemie. Et ne sera pas mal a propos de parler de Nicolas Flamel sur ce sujet. A large chapter is devoted to pearls and pearl fishing. The Persian Gulf is given as one of the main locations of pearl fishing 'Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus' (pages 65-90). Several locations are mentioned in the Gulf. "Very early, and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver, but with by far more space devoted to gemstones. The first chapter attempts to reconcile differing views of various writers, as cited by Berquem, on the origin of gemstones and precious metals, with following chapters taking up the principal gemstones, and some minor ones, as diamond, sapphire, topaz, ruby, spinel, emerald, amethyst, aquamarine, hyacinth, opal, chrysolite, iris, vermeille, garnets, carnelian, turquoise, quartz varieties, pearl, coral and amber, and lastly, a chapter on gold and silver. ... In tems of substance, this edition (the second and here offered one) is considerably superior to the first; both are rare" (Sinkankas 592 & 593). A good copy in a fine contemporary binding..

He married the niece of Inigo Jones and became his personal assistant from 1628. On Jones' death in 1652, Webb inherited both a substantial fortune and his library of drawings and designs. In 1654 Webb designed the first classical portico on an English country house, at The Vyne in Hampshire. This book is the first extensive treatise on the Chinese language in any European language. In it Webb proposes that the Chinese language was the language that was spoken throughout the world before Noah’s flood. He also discusses Chinese culture and the ancient origins of the Chinese empire. See: The Catalogue of the Lowendahl von der Burg collection, Volume 1, page 74.

        Hortus Regius Blesensis auctus, cum notulis durationis & charactismis plantarum tam additarum, quam non scriptarum; item plantarum in eodem horto Regio Blesensi aucto contentarum, nemini hucusque scriptarum, brevis & succincta delineatio... [with] Hallucinationes Caspari Bauhini in Pinace, tam in digerendis, quam denominandis plantis: item Animadversiones, in tres tomos, universalis Historiae, Plantarum; Johannes Bauhini...

      1669. London, typis Tho. Roycroft, 1669. 2 parts (bound in one). 8vo (272 x 115mm). pp. (24), 1-347, (11), 351-499, (5). Contemporary blind boards, spine with old lettering. First edition and the first work published by this famous Scottish botanist. The first part is a catalogue of plants growing in the Duc d'Orleans' botanical garden at Blois. "He was, among other things, the superintendent of the gardens at Blois for the Duc d'Orleans, and became the first Professor of Botany at Oxford in 1669. Later he was employed by Charles II of England to help with the laying out of St.James Park, and held the titles of Royal Physician and Royal Botanist" (Hunt 313). The catalogue consists of an alphabetical list of the Royal garden at Blois and was for a large part compiled by Abel Brunyer, Morison's colleague. The botanical garden created by Gaston d'Orleans at Blois was the most important French botanical garden in the 17th century. Nicolas Robert and Daniel Rabel were commissioned by the Duc d'Orleans to paint its plants. These were the first 'velins' of the great 'Collections des velins', now in the Paris Natural History Museum. The second part, 'Hallucinationes', is a list of mistakes made by Gaspard Bauhin in his 'Pinax' 1623, with Morison's corrections, followed by critisism ('Animadversiones') of Jean Bauhin's 'Historia plantarum universalis' (1650, 1651). "The 'Praeludia' concludes with a dialogue between the author, as Botanographus Regius, and a Fellow of the Royal Society, on the classification of plants. Morison alludes in this dialogue, in a very critical manner, to a recently published method of classification. No author's name is mentioned, but the method critized had appeared in a chapter giving tables of plants, contributed by John Ray to Dr. John Wilkins's 'Essay towards a real character, and a philosophical language'(1668).

Some occasional worming, mostly to outer margins and mostly in the first third of the book. Several pages with a bit of creasing and a few with small closed tears at the outer margins. Otherwise, an extremely handsome copy of a rare and important volume of early Christian intellectual thought on morality and canon law. ~FFF~ Paul Laymann (1574 - 13 November 1635) was an Austrian Jesuit. He was one of the greatest moralists and canonists of his time, and a copious writer on philosophical, moral, and juridical subjects. The most important of his thirty-three literary productions is the book for sale here, a compendium of moral theology. Until the second quarter of the eighteenth century it was edited repeatedly (latest edition, Mainz, 1723), and was extensively used as a textbook in seminaries.~FFF~ [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An historical essay endeavouring a probability that the language of the empire of China is the primitive language

      London: for Nath. Brook. 1669. "First edition, first issue (the book was reissued in 1678 under a different title and without the map) of the first book on the Chinese language published in the West, and the first separate book on China by an Englishman. & & Small 8vo, p. [8], 212, [1] (errata), engraved folding map (usually lacking); title-p. printed in red and black; full contemporary sheep neatly rebacked, old spine and label neatly laid down; two or three minor worm holes and short tears to the margins, otherwise a very good, sound copy or better, with the engraved map in a fine state; with the bookplate of Royal Society founder, Hans Sloane. & & Notes Harbsmeier, ""Webb's contribution to Sinology is so important because he summarized what could be gleaned on the Chinese language from the published Western literature, and because he was the first to make a systematic book-length attempt to define the place of Chinese among the languages of the world. His originality was limited to constructing out of these reports a case that Chinese was the original language of mankind before the building of the tower of Babel."" & & Webb (1611-72) was an architect of note and a student of Inigo Jones, and later the executor of his will. There appears to be little biographical information about Webb, and what little there is gives no hint of his philological studies. His thesis that the Chinese language is that from which all others emanate is grounded in his biblical studies. From his Preface: [It is not] my purpose... to insist on vulgar traditions, or licentious etymologies of words ... but fix my basis upon sacred truth, and credible history. Scripture teacheth, that the whole earth was of one language until the conspiracy at Babel; history informs that China was peopled, whilst the earth was so of one language...""

The inclusion of works testifying to the legitimacy of James Edward Stuart, the 'Old Pretender' (Wing E821C) and critical of the Declaration of William of Orange that preceded his invasion of England in 1689 (Wing S4590) suggests this was a collected into a single volume by a Scotchman of Jacobite tendencies.

The map includes depths, sand banks, rhumb lines, two compass roses, five decorative ships, and two coats of arms. An ornate title cartouche contains the scale and is surrounded by a triumphant merman and mermaids holding navigational and cartographic tools.

It remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It remains in its original uncolored state, which allows the map's intricate line work to shine. Minor overall toning with light offsetting. A few small tears to edges. Full original margins. Pieter Goos (1616-1675) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, publisher, printer, and print-seller based in Amsterdam. He belonged to a noted family of cartographers, headed by his father Abraham, who prepared plates for many maps published in the important atlases of the time. His pilot guide, the "Zee-Spiegel," provided some of the first charts of newly explored regions in the West Indies and Western Africa, and his "Zee-Atlas" is considered one of the best sea atlases of its time. This map is a fine example of Goos' high quality, visually appealing sea charts.

Al contropiatto anteriore ex-libris in pelle con Ex Museo Caroli Nodier, in oro. Frontespizio, 6 pagine non numerate;" 272-176 pagine numerate (la prima numerazione parte  da pagina 3, secondo Melzi mancherebbe un occhiello ma potrebbe essere un errore di numerazione). L'autore fu un celebre libellista italiano, cattolico convertito al protestantesimo che Curzio Malaparte ebbe a definire ""il più grande pamphlétaire italiano"". Il volume è costituito da due opere di cui la prima in due parti:  da pagina 9 a 108 per il Puttanismo Romano"; da pagina 109 a 272 per il Dialogo tra Pasquino e Morforio; seguono 176 pagine per Il Nuovo Parlatorio delle Monache. La prima e la seconda parte, Il Puttanismo Romano e il Dialogo, vennero pubblicate in forma anonima nel 1688. Nel Puttanismo,  attraverso la narrazione di dialoghi pruriginosi avvenuti  in un confessionale  si esprime una satira violentemente anticlericale,  attaccando la dissolutezza dei costumi della corte papale e del clero;" nell'opera si narra che le cortigiane romane per contrastare la sodomia dilagante organizzino un Conclave per la successione di Papa Alessandro VI, passando al loro  particolare vaglio i cardinali del tempo. Nel Dialogo, si tratta del medesimo argomento ma attaccando altri argomenti altrettanto gravi, quali il nepotismo, l'infallibilità del Papa e l'Inquisizione. Nella seconda opera, Il Parlatorio,  pubblicata in prima edizione nel 1650,  Leti attacca gli ordini monastici femminili, la narrazione è divisa in 9  ""finestre"", 5 in più della prima edizione, dialoghi avvenuti appunto dalle finestre di un convento veneziano, tra i dialoghi particolarmente audci, quello dove si narra di una certa suor Clementia che affida a donna Agata l&rsquo";incarico di commissionare a un vetraio degli “strumenti di vetro così forte, che non possano più ricevere danno dall’acqua calda” e soprattutto che non si rompano durante l’uso sessuale che ne avrebbero fatto. Esemplare in buone condizioni, sporadiche fioriture o arrossatture alle carte.

        Paskaarte van de Zuyd-west-kust van Africa

      Jacques & Gasper Anthoine, Amsterdam 1669 - This rare sea chart by Pieter Goos shows the western Cape of South Africa with north oriented to the left. The map extends roughly from Cabo Negro in Angola to the Cape of Good Hope, covering an area of trade waters that the Dutch East India Company used heavily in this period. Two insets show the Cape, including Table Mountain, and Vlees Bay to the east of the Cape. Uncommon for Goos' maps, the insets feature small illustrations of native animals: a pair of birds in Vlees Bay, and an ostrich, hyena, and monkey, among others, around the Cape. Mountains rendered pictorally. In addition to ports, the map includes topographical features, soundings, sand bars, fishing banks and navigational hazards. It also features rhumb lines, scales, two decorative ships, and embellished compass roses, one in the main map and one in the inset. Also uncommon for Goos, there is no title cartouche, but instead a title done in fine calligraphy. This map was published in Goos' "De Zee-Atlas, Ofte Water-Weereld" and remains in its original uncolored state, which allows Goos' intricate line work to shine. It is in good condition with slight foxing, soiling, and off-setting. Small chips in the margins, not affecting the image.

        Jerusalem

      Paris: Elzevier, 1669. Map. Engraving. Image measures 16.5" x 21.5". This map of Jerusalem appeared in La Sainte Bible, a French edition of the Bible published in 1669. The center plan was likely based on the model of Nicolas Visscher and shows the city's prominent landmarks, including the City of David and Solomon's Temple. These landmarks are labeled in accordance with keys in the upper corners which are printed on scrolls and supported by cherubs. A grid laid over the city is distorted to show its various hills and elevations. Surrounding the plan are various vignettes and illustrations by Berchem, including an elevation of the Temple of Solomon, trompe-l'oeil statues in niches, and allegorical scenes related to the Holy Land and its history. Both the plan and the illustrations are finely engraved and lend the map a fascinating level of intricacy. The map is in very good condition with no tears and only a very minor chip to the lower margin, not affecting the image. Narrow margins. Dark impression on crisp, bright paper. Nicolaes Berchem (1620-1683) was a painter of the Dutch Golden Age known for his pastoral landscapes. After studying with Cornelis van Poelenburgh and Jan van Goyen, well-known Dutch landscape painters, Berchem adopted a classicizing style which he applied to the Italian countryside, producing evocative, sun-bathed scenes which found great popularity in Holland. It was likely his skill as an artist that led the Elzevier publishing house to commission him to do the maps and decoration of their Sainte Bible. This lovely map is a fine collector's item.

Prostat apud Cornelium Bee in vico Little Britain. Anno Domini MDCLXIX [1669]. First Edition. Contact for anterior collation. In "In Genesin", 1,247 pp. "In "I Samuelis" (Pars Posterior), 1,027 pp. Elephant Folio, approx 15.75" tall. Full leather with six spine ribs, decorative tooled panels at covers. Chip at spine top, roughening at spine bottom, general moderate scuffing. Some creasing and very faint waterstaining to initial few leaves. Minimal foxing. Hinges relatively strong. Overall, Very Good. The first volume of Matthew Poole's opus, a life work in which he surveyed and encapsulated a wide variety of religious writings on both the Old and New Testaments. Poole, born in York in 1624, graduated from Emmanuel College in Cambridge in 1645, and succeeded Anthony Tuckney at St. Michael-le-Querne church, but would shortly thereafter leave the pastorate; as a strict Presbyterian, he resigned his living rather than conform to the Act of Uniformity. William Lloyd (later Bishop of Worcester) suggested that Poole then undertake his life's masterwork, the Synopsis. Viewed as a usable summary of then-extant religious writings from (almost] every source imaginable, the Synopsis is, in fact, an exercise in conciseness, as difficult as that may be to imagine of a set of five mammoth elephant folio volumes [of which this is volume 1 only]. Poole later decided to make the Synopsis - which was, and is here, written entirely in Latin - more accessible to the common man by prooducing an English version, but died in 1679 before he could complete this. John Howe and others did see to the ultimate completion of the English version. L30
