MÜLLER, Henrik :
Chra., Trøkt hos Mikkel Thomesøn. 1669. 12mo. Nyere skinnryggbind med enkel ryggforgylling og tittelfelt i mørkere brunt skinn. (2), 280 s.. Bibl. Norv. I s. 264. Proveniens : Jonas Skougaard, som i kollasjoneringen bemerker signaturen på tittelbladet "Ped. Møller". Kan dette være oversetterens eget eksemplar? I en katalog fra 1973 omtales denne boken som en norsk inkunabel. Michel Thomessøn, boktrykker i Christiania i perioden 1656-88. "Til dels må T. ha solgt til Danmark. Bokhandleren Chr. Cassube i Kjøbenhvan hadde således kjøpt en del eksemplarer av H. Müllers "Aandelige Spare-Timer", oversatt av Peder Møller, som da var prest i Kristiania, - ett av T.s trykk fra 1667. Men så lot Cassube trykket plagiere i Kjøbenhavn. Da dette blev opdaget og den innflytelsesrike Peder Møller hadde skaffet seg forfatterprivilegium på boken, gav Cassube ikke tapt, men lot på titelbladet av sitt plagiate trykk, hvor det stod "Trøkt hos Mickel Thomesøn Aar 1667", trykke en tilføielse slik : "oc soltis for 2. Marck. Oc nu trøckt i Kiøbenhaffn oc selgis for en Marck". (NBL XVI s. 221). Boken har mange feilpagineringer

SPEELMAN, Cornelis. -
Amsterdam, Marcus Doornick, (1669).4to. Modern boards. With woodcut on title-page. (24) pp.* First edition. - South Celebes (Sulawesi) lay on the route that the Dutch took from Batavia to Amboyna. The sultan of Makassar (now Ujung Pandang), the leading representative of Islam in the region, was especially hostile to the Dutch missionary drive. He was also determined to protect Makassar's position as an international harbour for the spice trade, open to all nations. With the support of the English, Danes and Portuguese, he had long resisted the efforts of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to monopolize the spice trade. Alarmed by this development, Batavia in 1666 sent an expedition against Makassar led by Cornelis Speelman (1628-1684). He forced the sultan in 1669 to conclude a treaty which the Dutch, obtained a monopoly of Makassar's trade and succeeded in bringing South Celebes under Dutch supremacy with the help of the Bugis people who were being oppressed by the Macassarese . - Very rare.Landwehr, VOC, 238; Cat.

LOWER, Richard.
Londini: Typis Jo. Redmayne impensis Jacobi Allestry, 1669. FIRST EDITION, second issue (see below) of "the most important contribution to circulatory physiology after William Harvey's De motu cordis, published three years before Lower's birth. Nobel Laureate André Cournand considered Lower's book to be one of the most important texts in the history of physiology because of the nature of its observations, the rigor of its experimental design and demonstrations, and its simple and convincing form of presentation... "Lower entered medical practice in London in 1666 and continued experiments he had begun in Oxford on the motion and color of the blood and on transfusion. His observations on these subjects were summarized in Tractatus de corde. "Lower made important observations on the structure of cardiac muscle, the quantity of blood in the vascular system, the velocity of blood flow, and the effects of aeration of blood as it passed through the lungs. He was impressed by the complex arrangement of muscular fibers in the heart and felt their unique arrangement was responsible for the contraction of the ventricular cavities in systole that propelled blood into the vascular system. In a series of experiments performed with Robert Hooke, Lower showed that the red color of arterial blood was due to its contact with 'fresh air' in the lungs. His book also contained observations on the technique and safety of blood transfusion, a technique he pioneered" (W. Bruce Fye in Grolier One Hundred (Medicine).

BEAULIEU, Augustin.
Amsterdam: Jan Rieuwertsz and Pieter Arentsz, 1669. Quarto, with eight engraved plates; bound in later period-style full calf, spine gilt with raised bands, ex libris of Saint Charles de Bourbon seminary on title;. First Dutch edition, and rare. This is the only separate appearance and the only illustrated edition of Beaulieu's account of his travels for the fledgling French "Compagnie des Indes Orientales". Beaulieu was a French navigator and coloniser who was appointed in 1619 to command the so-called "Fleet of Montmorency". The three ships sailed to Madagascar and Banda Atjeh via the Cape of Good Hope, but the voyage was not entirely a success, with two of the ships captured by the Dutch, keen to preserve the rights of the VOC. Undaunted, Beaulieu still petitioned for Madagascar to become a roadhouse for voyages to the East Indies, but Richelieu prevaricated, fearing provoking the Dutch. Despite Beaulieu's repeated encouragement, over the following decades Madagascar saw only desultory settlement, much of it from privateers. It was only in 1665 - a few years before the publication of this account - that the first voyage of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales carried settlers to the island; suffering under impossibly harsh conditions, the settlement petered out soon after. These French incursions were not particularly liked by the Dutch, and so it is perhaps not surprising that this Dutch translation focuses on the mishaps and disasters that plagued Beaulieu's voyage (hence rampspoedige, or "catastrophic", in the title). Designed for the Dutch popular market, it was publis … [Click Below for Full Description]
