      . . Horn-Sch. 1671 - CLC B 1889 - Fück 84 - Tobler 211.- Zweite Ausgabe.- In dem 1633 erstmals in London veröffentlichten Werk, an dem Samuel Bochart (1599-1667) 30 Jahre lang arbeitete, beschreibt er sämtliche in der Bibel erwähnten Tiere.- Die Arbeit stellt einen bedeutenden Schritt westlicher Erforschung arabischen wissenschaftlichen Schrifttums dar, wenn auch im Dienst der Bibelexegese. Bochart, Schüler von Erpenius, "trug in dem mächtigen Folianten alle Nachrichten über die Tiere der Bibel zusammen. Auszüge aus Damiri (Hayat ul Hayawan; vgl. Harting 204), Qazwini, dem Qamus und verschiedenen anderen arabischen Werken nehmen einen breiten Raum ein" (Fück). "Das Hierozoikon ist noch jetzt nicht bloss in zoologisch-historischer, sondern auch in literarischer Beziehung eine unerschöpfliche Fundgrube" (Carus, Geschichte der Zoologie, S. 315).- Ebd. etw. fleckig u. gering berieben, sonst schönes Exemplar.# Second edition.- Encyclopedic work on the zoology of the ancient Middle East, as recorded in the Bible. Bochart considers each animal mentioned in scripture and explores its treatment by ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic, and Hebrew naturalists. Text in Latin, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, and other Semitic languages. Bound in contemporary vellum, nice copy.

        Pinax Theatri Botanici sive index in Theophrasti Dioscoridis Plinii et botanicorum qui a seculo scripserunt opera plantarum circiter sex millium ab ipsis exhibitarum nomina cum earundem

      1671. synonymiis & differentiis methodice secundum genera & species proponens. Basileae, Joannis Regis, 1671. 4to (242 x 185mm). pp. (24), 518, (22), with woodcut printer's mark on title (bound up with:) IDEM. Prodromus Theatri Botanici in quo plantae supra sexcentae ab ipso primum descriptae cum plurimis figuris proponuntur. Editio altera emendatior. Basileae, impensis Ioannis Regis, 1671. 4to. pp. (4), 160, (12), with woodcut printer's mark on title and 138 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary vellum. Second and enlarged edition of these two great botanical works. Bauhin's 'Pinax' and 'Prodromus' ushered in a new era for botany, establishing it as a science in its own right, distinct from its herbal/medical affiliations. "The progress of botanical science... reaches its highest point in the labours of Gaspard Bauhin, as regards both the naming and describing of the individual plants and their classification according to likeness of habit... The descriptions of species in the 'Prodromus'... notice all obvious parts of the plants with all possible brevity and in fixed order...; the description of a single species is here in fact developed into an art and becomes a diagnoses. A still higher value must be set on the fact, that in Gaspard Bauhin the distinction between species and genus is fully and consciously carried out; every plant has with him a generic and specific name, and this binary nomenclature which Linnaeus is usually thought to have founded, is almost perfectly maintained by Bauhin, especially in the 'Pinax'" (Sachs p. 33). Some foxing as usual. Stafleu & Cowan 367 & 366..

        THE HONOUR OF CHIVALRY or The famous and delectable history of Don Bellianis of Greece

      London,1671.: . London,1671.. Continuing as well the valiant exploits of that magnanimous and heroick Prince, son to the Emperor Don Bellaneo of Greece; as also the wars between him and the Souldan of Persia. Wherein is likewise described the strange and dangerous adventures that befel him in the prosecution of his love towards the Princess Florisbella, daughter to the Souldan of Babylon. His releasing of her father the Souldan from a strange enchantment, and vanquishing the Emperor of Trebizond....Now newly written in English by F.K. First part only of 3 of second edition of Francis Kirkman's translation, printed by Tho. Johnson, for Francis Kirkman and are to be sold at his shop, 1671. Small 4to, 175 x 125 mm, 6¾ x 5 inches, printed mainly in black letter, pages (2), 1-32, 49-96, 90-93, LACKING 2 LEAVES C2 AND C3, pagination is erratic but catchwords to the rest of the text follow on, as does the register, curiously the title page has been replaced by the title page of the second part, which was identical to that of the first part except for the words "The Second Part" placed after the title, bound in full antique calf, blind ruled panels to covers, gilt rules and raised bands, lacking spine label. Covers lightly scuffed, head and tail of spine and corners slightly rubbed, front inner paper hinge cracked but binding tight and firm, title page and first page of text dusty and slightly marked with ink, first 5 leaves have neat paper repairs to either a margin or the top corner, 4 further margin repairs further on, pages age browned throughout, some upper margins trimmed just shaving the running title, occasional pale staining and light damp staining, no loss of legibility, some old ink writing in a couple of places, small piece torn from 1 lower margin, tiny hole in text on 2 pages with loss of a couple of letters, still easily understandable. Binding tight and firm. A defective copy of Part I of a very scarce work, (lacking 2 leaves as noted). The source of this novel of knight errantry is one of the continuations of the Spanish medieval romance Amadis of Gaul. This one, Historia del valeroso e invencible Principe don Belianis de Grecia, is attributed to the Spanish writer Geronimo Fernandez and the earliest English translation of this popular romance appears to have been published in 1598. It was newly translated from either Spanish or an Italian version by Francis Kirkman and his version first published in 1664. Kirkman (1632 - c. 1680) appears in many roles in the English literary world of the second half of the seventeenth century, as a publisher, bookseller, librarian, author, translator and bibliographer. He was an enthusiast for popular literature and wrote and published romances of his own. He was also famous for one of the earliest circulating libraries which consisted of his collection of over 800 plays. His catalogues of plays constitute his most important contribution to literary history. Images sent on request.

      1671. Littleton, Sir Thomas [d. 1481]. Littleton's Tenures, In French and English. With an Alphabetical Table of the Principal Matters Therein Contained. London: Printed by John Streater, James Flesher and Henry Twyford, Assigns of Richard Atkins, and Edward Atkins, 1671. [xxii], 436 (i.e. 426), [2] pp. Main text in parallel columns. 12mo. (5-1/4" x 3"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards and spine. Light rubbing to extremities, small chip to head of spine, rear joint just starting at head, front hinge cracked but secure, rear pastedown loose and worn around the edges. Clean tear to fore edges of a few leaves with no loss to text. Offsetting to margins of endleaves, toning to a few text leaves, interior otherwise fresh. Ex-private library. Armorial bookplate of the library of the Earls of Macclesfield to front pastedown, the library's small embossed stamp to title page, small shelf labels to spine. A lovely unsophisticated copy. * First edition with parallel texts in English and Law French. Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases.

      Würzburg, Johann Andreas Endter & Wolfgang Juniors Erben 1671.. Kl.-4°. 11 Bll., 689 S., 7 Bll. (Register). Mit gest. Titel, Wappenkupfer und 12 Kupfertafeln. Pergamentbd. d.Z. mit goldgepr. Rückenschild und handgeschr. Rückentitel (fleckig)., fester Einband. Der Jesuit Athanasius Kircher war einer der grossen Universalgelehrten des 17. Jahrhunderts. Seit 1638 am Collegium Romanum als Lehrer für Mathematik, Physik und Orientalistik beschäftigt, wurde er für vielfältige Sonderaufgaben von diesen eigentlichen Arbeiten freigestellt und widmete sich verstärkt seinen eigenen Forschungen auf dem Gebiet der Medizin (Ursachen und Bekämpfung der Pest, der Erforschung der Hieroglyphen und dem Ausbau seiner bedeutenden Antiquitätensammlung). Diese Arbeiten sicherten ihm bleibenden Ruhm. Zahlreiche Erfindungen gehen auf ihn zurück: Laterna magica, Windharfe, eine magnetische Uhr, Bleipipelines u.a. - Der offiziellen Lehrmeinung gemäss wandte er sich gegen das kopernikanische Weltbild, vertrat dieses aber in seinen späten Lebensjahren und gerade in vorliegendem Werk:"Der Astronaut Theodidactus (Kircher) wird von dem Engel Cosmiel zum Mond, den Planeten und den Sternen begleitet und auf diese Weise in das gesamte zeitgenössische astrologische und kosmologische Wissen eingeführt" (Dünnhaupt). Kirchers Werk beschreibt den Erkenntnisstand der astronomischen Forschungen hinsichtlich der Sonne, der damals bekannten Planeten und des Sternenhimmels. Die Kupfertafeln zeigen Darstellungen der verschiedenen Planeten, darunter den Saturn mit Ringen, die Mondoberfläche, Sonnenflecken und vieles mehr. Die zweite Reise widmet sich dem Aufbau der Erde an der Oberfläche und im Innern; seine Überlegungen zur Geologie der Erde, zum Beispiel von einem heissen Erdkern, sind, wenn auch von seinem Zeitgenossen Descartes zutreffender vorausgeahnt, noch heute beeindruckend. Recht abenteuerlich mutet hingegen Kirchers Theorie von einer unterirdischen Verbindung der Weltmeere als Ursache für die Gezeiten an. - Dritte Ausgabe, zweite in dieser vollständigen Fassung. - 1660 erschien, unter Beteiligung seines Schülers Caspar Schott, die beiden fiktiven Reisen des Verfassers erstmals gemeinsam in einem Band und gegenüber den Erstdrucken von 1656 und 1657 teils revidiert. - Sehr selten. - Gering stockfleckig, 4 Bll. oben angerändert (ohne Textverlust), Innendeckel mit Klebeschild, Vorsatz mit Feuchtigkeitsspur. - VD17 39:121918M.

        A Sketch of the Life and Projects of John Law of Lauriston,comptroller General of the finances in France

      Quarto, 29.0 x 23.0 cm, original blue paper wrappers, uncut, pp.(4) + ii + 48, paper wrappers with short tear, an excellent copy, preserved in a marbled portfolio with ties.ESTC T8458. Kress B2240. Goldsmith 14941.RARE FIRST EDITION of the earliest published biography in English of the Scottish economist John Law. The dedication is to William Davidson of Muirhead. The son of a prosperous banker John Law [1671-1729] devoted his entire life to making proposals for the establishment of banks, both in Scotland and on the Continent, convinced as he was that the key to economic prosperity lay in augmenting the base of metallic currencies with paper money, particularly paper money backed by land holdings. He was appointed Controller General of Finances in France by the regent Philippe dOrleans in 1716 and the became the architect of the Mississippi Bubble. Law was dismissed from his post in 1720.His principal theories on money and banking, giving a detailed account of his plan to replace specie with paper currency based on land and of his proposals for a state bank were published in his Money and trade considered, published anonymously in Edinburgh in 1705. Law is described by Schumpeter as "in the front rank of monetary theorists of all times". Antoin Murphy writes "Money and trade in particular is a seminal work....In it Law discussed not only the money/inflation issue, but, more significantly, the money/output issue. He was contending that money was linked, not just to the price level, but also to output ? or trade, as it was then called. Law wanted to show that an expansion of money supply could increase output and employment in an economy characterised by unemployment and under-utilisation of resources. At the same time, he produced a highly innovative approach to macroeconomic theorizing..."The author of this biography John Wood was to publish in 1794 an account of John Law?s ancestral village entitled The Ancient and Modern State of the Parish of Cramond.

      London 1671 - Continuing as well the valiant exploits of that magnanimous and heroick Prince, son to the Emperor Don Bellaneo of Greece; as also the wars between him and the Souldan of Persia. Wherein is likewise described the strange and dangerous adventures that befel him in the prosecution of his love towards the Princess Florisbella, daughter to the Souldan of Babylon. His releasing of her father the Souldan from a strange enchantment, and vanquishing the Emperor of Trebizond.Now newly written in English by F.K. First part only of 3 of second edition of Francis Kirkman's translation, printed by Tho. Johnson, for Francis Kirkman and are to be sold at his shop, 1671. Small 4to, 175 x 125 mm, 6¾ x 5 inches, printed mainly in black letter, pages (2), 1-32, 49-96, 90-93, LACKING 2 LEAVES C2 AND C3, pagination is erratic but catchwords to the rest of the text follow on, as does the register, curiously the title page has been replaced by the title page of the second part, which was identical to that of the first part except for the words "The Second Part" placed after the title, bound in full antique calf, blind ruled panels to covers, gilt rules and raised bands, lacking spine label. Covers lightly scuffed, head and tail of spine and corners slightly rubbed, front inner paper hinge cracked but binding tight and firm, title page and first page of text dusty and slightly marked with ink, first 5 leaves have neat paper repairs to either a margin or the top corner, 4 further margin repairs further on, pages age browned throughout, some upper margins trimmed just shaving the running title, occasional pale staining and light damp staining, no loss of legibility, some old ink writing in a couple of places, small piece torn from 1 lower margin, tiny hole in text on 2 pages with loss of a couple of letters, still easily understandable. Binding tight and firm. A defective copy of Part I of a very scarce work, (lacking 2 leaves as noted). The source of this novel of knight errantry is one of the continuations of the Spanish medieval romance Amadis of Gaul. This one, Historia del valeroso e invencible Principe don Belianis de Grecia, is attributed to the Spanish writer Geronimo Fernandez and the earliest English translation of this popular romance appears to have been published in 1598. It was newly translated from either Spanish or an Italian version by Francis Kirkman and his version first published in 1664. Kirkman (1632 - c. 1680) appears in many roles in the English literary world of the second half of the seventeenth century, as a publisher, bookseller, librarian, author, translator and bibliographer. He was an enthusiast for popular literature and wrote and published romances of his own. He was also famous for one of the earliest circulating libraries which consisted of his collection of over 800 plays. His catalogues of plays constitute his most important contribution to literary history. Images sent on request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

One of the most prominent English physiologists of his day, Lower (in Norman's words) "made the next great advance after Harvey in the physiology of blood circulation when he determined experimentally, with the assistance of Robert Hooke, that venous blood is changed to arterial blood in the lungs by virtue of its contact with air. The experiments leading to this discovery are reported in the third chapter of Lower's 'De Corde,' a work that also contains a number of other important observations, such as the scroll-like structure of the cardiac muscle (confirmed 250 years later by Mall), the heart's contractive and expulsive movements, the tamponade effect of pericardial effusion, and the limiting effect of pericardial adhesions on the heart." The fourth chapter here gives details of blood transfusions Lower (1631-91) made between dogs in February of 1665 and between humans in November of 1667, among the very first such operations to be performed. An edition appeared in London in 1669, and that "is usually considered to be the first." (Heirs of Hippocrates) All early editions are in Latin, and while none of them can be said to be extremely rare, it is difficult to imagine a contemporary copy in better condition than the present one.

        L'Incredulité scavante, et la credulité ignorante: au sujet des magiciens et des sorciers, avecque la response à un livre intitulé Apologie pour tous les grands personnages, qui ont esté faussement soupconnés de Magie. Par le P. Jacques d'Autun, Predicateur Capucin.

      Lyons: Jean Molin, 1671 - Quarto (220 x 160 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments, red and brown sprinkled edges. Binding rubbed and scuffed, with small leather loss at foot of front joint, title page marked from over-enthusiastic edge-sprinkling, occasional minor staining elsewhere, a very good copy. Woodcut vignette on title, woodcut initials, and head- and tailpieces. First edition, a reply to Gabriel Naudé's sceptical Apologie pour tous les grands personnages, qui ont été faussement soupçonnés de magie, recently republished in 1669. Jacques de Chevanes (c.1608&#150;1678) of Autun had personal experience of a witch-hunt in Burgundy in 1648/9, and he includes extracts from a 1670 interview with a woman accused of sorcery and witchcraft. Addressed to the parlement of Dijon, the book is written largely from a legalistic point of view, though with lengthy digressions, for example on astrology. Lynn Thorndike suggests that its title was a deliberate echo of the English anti-sceptical work On Credulity and Incredulity in Things Natural, Civil and Divine (1668) by Méric Casaubon. The book walks a middle way between scepticism and credulity: Chevanes argues that sorcerers are few in number and that their redemption and regeneration is both possible and preferable to their judicial execution.

And Humbly Presented to the Kings Most Excellent Majesty Charles II. In the Year, 1671. The Instruments (or Speaking-Trumpets) of all Sizes and Dimensions, are Made and Sold by Mr. Simon Beal, one of his Majesties Trumps: in Suffolk-Street

      London, Printed by W. Godbid, and are to be Sold by M. Pitt..., 1671. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 295 x 200 mms., pp. [ii], 14, with five illustrations of trumpets and acoustical phenomena on the verso of the title-page, and pages 2, 6, 8, and 10, title-page and page 12 printed in red and black, late 18th century calf spine, marbled boards (slightly worn); without the portrait found in some copies, small paper flaw in C2, very slight browning of margins with a few very minor abrasions. From the Macclesfield Library, with the armorial bookplate date 1860 on the front paste-down end-paper and the small Macclesfield crest in blind on the first two leaves. Sir Samuel Morland (1625 - 1695) was interested in mathematics, natural philosophy, and languages from an early age and was a fellow of Magdalene College, Cambridge. One of his students was Samuel Pepys, who recorded his presence at a dinner in 1660 when no one "did give him any respect, he being looked upon by...all men as a knave." Later in 1668, when Pepys was invited to see the calculating machine that Morland had invented, he observed that the invention was "very pretty, but not very useful." Of this particular invention, Alan Marshall in the Oxford DNB says "Early work on a speaking trumpet, said to be Morland&#39;s own invention, culminated in the 1670s with his experiments in St James&#39;s Park before Charles II and a number of courtiers. With the king&#39;s encouragement various types of trumpet were manufactured and used, the three largest being sent off to Deal Castle for trials there. The navy was also given orders for their use at sea. It was claimed that voices could be heard at a distance of over a mile...." His trumpets were much talked about in the late 17th century, but it was another 150 years before the modern tuba found a place in orchestras. Morland&#39;s tuba looks more like an early trumpet or cornet, or even a trombone without the slide. As a method for gathering and projecting sound, it was in advance of anything in its day.

Original fold marks, blank on verso, otherwise a strong impression and overall a very good map. A map from Montanus' famous work "De Nieuwe en Onbekende Weereld" (Amsterdam, 1671). "Excellent map of the eastern part of Brazil based on the cartography of Hessel Gerritsz and an earlier map by Blaeu. Extensive detail in coastal regions with the interior left largely blank except for some conjectural river systems. The Linea Aequinoctialis is prominently shown dividing the Spanish and Portuguese colonial claims. Richly embellished with rhumb lines, compass roses and sailing ships. European traders, Indians and putti surround the title and scale of miles cartouches" (Old World Auctions).
