I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An impressive tome from the famous 1669 Elzevier Holy Bible. This volume is the first volume which includes the Old Testament books through Song of Songs. According to Willems, "This Bible could rightly be considered the most beautiful monumental work of Elzevierian typography." This printing was Des Marets' annotated edition of the French Geneva version. Darlow & Moule note that editors, S and H des Marets took the text of Hayes' 1652 Paris edition. It also features incredible folding maps of the Holy Land and Jerusalem, in fact, the maps alone from this tome are considered extremely valuable and desirable. [Attributes: First Edition]

Webb, John
London: Printed for Nath. Brook, 1669. First edition. Title-page printed in red and black, imprimatur (A1v), errata (P3r), lacking folding engraved map. Possibly the first work in China in English, this rare treatise on the supposed original language spoken by Adam and Eve, by the architect John Webb, a pupil of Inigo Jones. Harbsmeier notes that "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...[and] to constructing out of these reports a case that Chinese was the original language of mankind before the building of the Tower of Babel."

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.

"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.

The third book (‘Straets-boeck') of Pieter Goos's ‘Lighting Colom' (‘Zeespiegel'), which details the Mediterranean navigation. This ‘Straets-boeck' – or ‘Straights Book', so named after the Straits of Gibraltar – was first published by Goos with Dutch text in 1662 and, in that same year, with a different title page as part III of the ‘Zee-Spieghel'. The charts in the work were newly engraved by Goos, but the text was borrowed from Jacobsz Lootsman's ‘Straets-boeck' of 1648. In the contents the author explains the differences between the handling of the compass by the Dutch and Italians, and that the information in this work is adapted to Dutch use. He also explains why the charts have no degrees of latitude, as well as the use of the backstaff. The list with “The height of Som Places in the Midle-land Sea” contains additions and corrections in manuscript. Rare. We are only able to trace one example – the present copy – coming up for sale in the past 35 years. Koeman, IV, Goos 45; Wing, C-5403dA.

SINIBALDI, Giovanni Benedetto
1669 1st ed Geneanthropeia Human Sexuality Bizarre Medicine Occult Sinibaldi Giovanni Benedetto Sinibaldi was a 17th-century physician and progressive thinking on human sexuality and reproduction. He is chiefly remembered for his work ‘Geneanthropeia’ or ‘Rare Varieties, The Cabinet of Venus Unlocked’. This work is an extremely rare medical treatise that focuses on sexual intercourse, and human production. Sinibaldi discussed many controversial topics in ‘Geneanthropeiae’ such as sex addiction, minors engaging in sex, and ways to identify virgins. While trying to arouse and entice his readers, Sinibaldi mentions that children should not have to try to be sneaky to engage in sex at a young age, in fact parents should encourage it! (Knowles, p.928). He also offers techniques for different positions of coitus, even though he was rather ignorant to the female reproductive system. He also discusses the effects of minerals, plants, and animals on virgin women – he claims that virgins cannot endure the smell of Lilies and that honeybees will seek out sexually active persons.

The "Royal Republic of Naples" was declared, appealing to the protection of France and nominally headed by Guise. However, the tactless Guise rapidly alienated the Neapolitans, and wielded little influence with Cardinal Mazarin.

Amsterdam: Apud Casparum Commelinum, 1669, 12°, (4), 260 pp., 5 Kupfertafl., Halbledereinband i.St.d.Zt.; feines Expl. Malpighi's second letter, Exercitatio epistolica de lingua, and Fracassati's first, of the same title, are addressed to Giovanni Alfonso Borelli. Originally published in 1665 under title: Tetras anatomicarum epistolarum; the 1669 edition includes De externo tactus organo, which was published separately in 1665. Carlo Fracassati (1630-1672), "Malpighi's close friend, confidant, and colleague at Bologna, was responsible for assembling these letters for publication. The work contains four letters of Malpighi and two of Fracassati on the brain, tongue, adipose tissues, and skin. The five folding plates illustrate Malpighi's microscopic investigations of the brain and tongue. Malpighi's name is celebrated in several eponymous anatomical structures in the kidney, spleen, skin, and lungs. It is in the epistle on the tongue that he described the mucosal layer beneath the epidermis which is now called the Malpighian layer. In "De omento, pinguedine, et adiposis ductibus," Malpighi reported his observation of the red blood corpuscles. Unfortunately he mistook them for globules of fat passing into the blood and it wasn't until 1674 that Leeuwenhoek gave the first accurate description of the erythrocytes." Heirs of Hippocrates Marcello Malpighi (1628-1694) Anatomist, embryologist, physiologist, and microscopist, Malpighi was not only instrumental in the development of embryology and histology but was also one of the greatest microscopic anatomists.

Extremely Rare 1669 First English Language Edition Of "An Embassy from the East-India Company By Johan Nieuhof The First Book About The Real China Many Illustrations LAST PRICE REDUCTION! A rare 1669 first English language edition of An Embassy from the East-India Company by Dutch author and explorer Johan Nieuhof, originally published in Dutch in 1665. Due to its tremendous success, several other editions were published that were heavily edited apparently for commercial reasons. It was then translated into French, German, Latin and English in 1665, 1666, 1668, and 1669 respectively. While the other versions were published by Van Meurs, the English version was published and translated by John Ogilby. The book, split into two parts and an appendix, contains notes and illustrations that Nieuhof made while he was a steward on Peter de Goyer and Jacob de Keizer's embassy to the emperor of China. It also contains a written account of the trip and 149 illustrations. The first part of the work contains details of the entire journey from Canton to Peking and back while the second part is a general overview of China. This book was important to the time because it was a unique source about China and its practices. The images were an important aspect of the book because they more accurately depicted the people of China versus the fantastical European illustrations from the past.

WEBB, John.
London: for Nath. Brook, 1669. Octavo (169 x 105 mm). Modern half calf to style, morocco label, marbled sides. Foxe Point bookplate. A couple of early leaves creased and dusty at upper outer corner where turned down as placemarkers, a very good copy. Large folding engraved map of China, title printed in red and black. With the errata leaf p3 at end but without final blank. First edition, an influential treatise proposing Chinese as the original language, and one of the earliest books in English discussing Chinese culture in any depth. The architect John Webb, a pupil of Inigo Jones, argued that Noah could be identified with the legendary king Yao; that he had withdrawn from the tribes whose languages were confounded at Babel long before that point in biblical history, and that he had built the Ark in China, landed it there, and bequeathed to China the language spoken by Adam, preserved to Webb's day in modern China as the language of the court. Webb's view of Chinese script was strongly influenced by not only Semedo but also the Jesuit polymath and hermeticist Athanasius Kircher. Webb was also inspired by John Wilkins's recent publication on artificial language, arguing that Wilkins, whether knowingly or not, had based the idea of his artificial language on Chinese. Webb's proposed harmonisation of world history was taken seriously by many; his work was a major spur to the construction of English sinology in the later decades of the 17th century. The work precedes by almost two decades the Paris Jesuit edition of Confucius, published in 1687. The rare folding map of China, … [Click Below for Full Description]

To the corners and sides of the map are topographical vignettes, together with depictions of mines and water mills. Below the plan is a scale bar flanked by two putti, together with surveying tools and globes.

Original pen and black ink and colour wash on fine paper, laid down in the nineteenth-century on heavier stock (upper left-hand corner torn with loss and restored with manuscript facsimile, old stab holes on each side margin, old vertical fold and mount on verso). A superb bird's-eye view of central Crete, shown during the final struggle for control of the island in June of 1669 after nearly 22 years of conflict between its Venetian defenders and its Ottoman attackers. The outcome of this endgame was the concern of the whole of Christian Europe, not just that of its Venetian rulers. The Siege of Crete, as part of the fourth Cretan War lasted for 22 years, 1648-1669, and was waged between the defending Serene Republic of Venice and the attacking forces of the Ottoman Empire, who were ultimately victorious. This anonymous, beautiful and extremely detailed birds-eye view of the central part of the island is oriented to the south, with the city of Candia, now Heraklion, in the forefront and Mount Ida on the horizon. Coastal place-names are mostly placed at right-angles in typical portolan style; inland, castles and towns are named, roads and rivers are shown, and invading Ottoman troop positions are depicted exploding with fire-power, and are noted and named in the key. However, it is the fortified city of Candia … [Click Below for Full Description]

Front hinge slightly opened. A very good copy. Provenance: J. H. Harrison (ex-libris on the front pastedown). Third and best edition of the Mensa Isiaca by the Paduan antiquarian Pignoria, the first scholarly work on Egyptology, which first appeared in Venice in 1605, under the title Vetustissimae tabulae aeneae sacris Aegyptiorum. The 'Mensa Isiaca' or the table of Isis was an elaborate bronze table with enamel and silver inlay discovered in the ruins of the Temple of Isis after the Sack of Rome in 1527; it may have been executed – as Pignoria himself suggests – in Rome in the first century AD. The table was then bought by Cardinal Pietro Bembo (it is also known as the 'Bembine Table'); after his death in 1547 the table was acquired by the Gonzagas, remaining in their collections until the capture of Mantua in 1630. The table of Isis eventually came into the hands of Cardinal Pava, who gave it to the Duke of Savoy, who then presented it to the King of Sardinia. In 1797 the tablet was carried in Paris by French troops, and in 1809 – as Alexandre Lenoir attests – it w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Title-page printed in red and black, with engraved vignette. Seven-line decorated initial on fol. A1r, head- and tailpieces. Large folding plate, with engraved diagram and explanatory letter-press. Contemporary limp vellum, spine with inked title; blue edges. A very good copy, some minor foxing, a few spots.First edition of this "great work [.] which outlines the principles of modern geology" (DSB), by the Danish anatomist Niels Stensen, better known as Nicolaus Steno, then physician at the Florentine court. The De solido is dedicated to Ferdinand II, Grand Duke of Tuscany. In this work, a cornerstone of geology based on data collected in the Arno Valley, Steno sought to describe the anatomy of the earth and to explain the entire system of nature stratum super stratum. His contributions to plate tectonic theory and to stratigraphy is based on his theory that layers or strata of the earth, which are not horizontal, must have been tilted or folded by a force, such as an earthquake, after they formed. His principle of superposition also applied to other geologic events on the surface, such as lava flows and ash layers from volcanic eruptions. Although brief in form – the work was only intended as an introduction to a larger work that Steno would never write – the impact of De solido was far greater than its modest size would suggest, establishing important principles of geology and elaborating upon new tools for … [Click Below for Full Description]

Selling at a bargain ! Our Gallery Is Closing in 2018 ! Later 18th C. covers detached. Toning & some foxing consistent with age. Map at front missing. Some bent covers as shown. Extremely Rare 1669 First English Language Edition Of "An Embassy from the East-India Company By Johan Nieuhof The First Book About The Real China Many Illustrations LAST PRICE REDUCTION! A rare 1669 first English language edition of An Embassy from the East-India Company by Dutch author and explorer Johan Nieuhof, originally published in Dutch in 1665. Due to its tremendous success, several other editions were published that were heavily edited apparently for commercial reasons. It was then translated into French, German, Latin and English in 1665, 1666, 1668, and 1669 respectively. While the other versions were published by Van Meurs, the English version was published and translated by John Ogilby. The book, split into two parts and an appendix, contains notes and illustrations that Nieuhof made while he was a steward on Peter de Goyer and Jacob de Keizer's embassy to the emperor of China. It also contains a written account of the trip and 149 illustrations. The first part of the work contains details of the entire journey from Canton to Peking and back while the second part is a general overview of China. This book was important to the time because it was a unique source about China and its practices. The images were an important aspect of the book because they more accurately depicted the people of China versus the fantastical European illustrations from the past. Dimensions: 10.25"W x 16" L x 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]
