Mercurio, Scipione, und Gottfried (Übers.) Welsch:
Wittenberg, Mevius Erben und E. Schumacher (Druck: Wittenberg, M. Henckel) 1671 - 16 Bl., 844 (recte 836) Seiten (vollständig). Mit Kupfertitel u. 23 Kupferstichtafeln. Quart (20 x 16 cm).

Jahrhunderts zur Geburtshilfe - vollständiges Exemplar mit Kupfertitel, allen 23 Kupferstichen und sämtlichen Seiten. Mercurios Hauptwerk "La Commare", das erste in italienischer Sprache erschienene Hebammenbuch, wurde von dem Leipziger Medizinprofessor und Mitbegründers der modernen forensischen Medizin, Gottfried Welsch (1618-1690) übersetzt und bearbeitet. Deutsche Ausgaben erschienen 1652 (1653 als Titelauflage) in Leipzig und in 1671 in Wittenberg. Die teilweise für die dt. Ausgabe neuen Kupferstiche wurden von dem Leipziger Kupferstecher Johann Reinhold Schildknecht gestochen. Besondere Bedeutung erlangte das Werk vor allem auch mit seiner Erwähnung des Kaiserschnitts. Als erster erwähnte Mercurio ein enges Becken als Indikation zur sectio caesarea. "It is a work of importance for the study of history of Caesarean section; in it Mercurio advocated the Caesarean operation in cases of contracted pelvis" (Garrison-M. 6144 zur ital. Ausg. v. 1596) "One of the earliest works on obstetrics to be published in Italy. It maintained an authoritative position in Italy and Germany for more than one hundred and twenty-five years, and Mercurio's writings remain as the outstanding contribution to Italian obstetrics during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries" (Heirs of Hippocrates 234). - … [Click Below for Full Description]

[PURCHAS, Samuel], John SANDERSON, Henry TIMBERLAKE and others.
Alden & Landis 678/140; Sabin 78871; STCN (6 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 955. First and only Dutch edition of an account of the voyages of three English merchant adventurers: John Sanderson in the Levant, Egypt and Constantinople (Istanbul), presented here as 1671-1676 but in fact describing travels in the years 1584-1602; Henry Timberlake in Jerusalem (1601); and the young John Smith in the Ottoman Empire (ca. 1598-1604) before his more famous voyage to America. All three are loosely translated from the relevant accounts in Purchas his pilgrimes, London, 1625, but the accounts of Sanderson and Timberlake are written in the first person. The present publisher added some texts from other sources, and the frontispiece and other illustrations, etched and engraved in a style sometimes reminiscent of Romein de Hooghe, are also new. Timberlake, though Protestant himself, shocked more narrow-minded Protestants by his accounts of the kindness of a Muslim Moor journeying from Fez to Mecca, who had joined his ship at Algiers and secured his release when he was arrested in Jerusalem. Slightly browned and with the title-page backed, apparently to strengthen it after a library stamp on the back was erased, minor and mostly marginal smudges or spots and a small marginal tear, but otherwise in good condition and with generous margins. Lacking the final blank leaf. The dedication was supposed to precede the publisher's note to the reader, but is here bound after it. The binding is rubbed and tattered, with most of the title-label gone. First Dutch edition of a fascinating account of English merc … [Click Below for Full Description]

RICHELET (Pierre);
Paris Estienne Loyson 1671 In-12 de (8)-276-(2) pp., basane brune, dos orné à nerfs, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale rare. Première publication de Pierre Richelet (1626-1698) sous son nom, entièrement rédigée par ses soins après avoir signé en 1667 deux traductions de l'espagnol et le Dictionnaire des Rimes véritablement composé par Frémont d'Ablancourt. La Versification françoise ou l'art de bien faire et tourner les vers « a vu le jour en 1671 et a été fort lu. Richelet connaît ses prédécesseurs comme Sebillet, Du Bellay, Ch. Fontaine (B. Aneau) Gracien du Pont, de Laudun d'Aigaliers, Vauquelin, Deimier, Colletet, Boileau, Lancelot qu'il cite parmi plusieurs autres. Il s'est donc documenté avec soin. Son volume contient une brève histoire de la poésie française et un exposé des règles de la versification. Il étudie également les divers mètres ; mais en outre il examine des questions de style importantes, il signale les mots qui rendent les vers rudes et languissants, ceux qui n'entrent pas ou n'entrent que rarement dans les vers ; enfin, il définit le bon et le méchant vers. Son traité est donc bien loin d'avoir l'ampleur de l'Art poétique de Boileau, parce qu'il y fait une part beaucoup moins grande aux problèmes d'esthétique générale. En revanche il est d'un tour plus précis et plus technique » (Georges Lote, Histoire du vers français). Ex-libris armorié à la main ouverte non identifié sur le contreplat supérieur.

Coiffes et mors soigneusement restaurés, exemplaire globalement en bon état, bien complet des 3 planches dépliantes dont la plus petite est collée à la fin de la troisième partie. Rohault anima également chez lui, un groupe de chercheurs qui se signala parmi les autres groupes parisiens comme ceux de Marin Mersenne, des frères Dupuy, de l'abbé Picot ami de Descartes, M. Denis, etc. (La Pléiade : Histoire de la science, p. 89). Ce Traité de physique fut en si grande faveur qu'il atteignit sa douzième édition en 1708, et qu'une traduction imprimée à Londres parvint à la sixième en 1739.

BOCCHINI Bartolomeo
Pisarri Ant, 1671. 3 opere in cinque parti in un vol. in - 12, pp. 82, (2); 72; 48; 71; 118, (2); leg. coeva p. perg., tit. ms. al dorso. Con 3 belle silografie raffig. commedianti, vignette e fregi. Pregevole raccolta, in edizioni diverse, di opere poetiche, giocose e burlesche (la prima edizione delle Opere è probabilmente quella di Modena, Soliani,1655). Il Bocchini, nato a Bologna nel 1604 e morto nel Bergamasco o a Venezia tra il 1648 ed il 1653, fu stravagante autore ed attore della commedia dell'arte e scrisse le sue opere, secondo molti bibliografi e critici (Quadrio, Gay, Brunet, Graesse, ecc.), in dialetto bergamasco, mentre per il Gamba (Opere in dialetto veneziano, p. 125), sono "nel vero dialetto veneziano, alterato quando a quando alla maniera propria di parlare de' Zanni, ch'erano i mimi a suo tempo i più motteggevoli sulle scene". Il Sanesi (vol. I, pp. 432 - 3) ci informa che "Zanni", forma dialettale di Giovanni o Gianni, è caricatura dei grossolani facchini bergamaschi. E' interessante osservare, comunque, che proprio nel 1671 viene rappresentata a Parigi "Les fourberies de Scapin" di Molière, che, riprendendo la vecchia maschera italiana, la fisserà definitivamente sulle scene. Discreto esemplare (un po' corto il margine super. e con un piccolo lavoro di tarlo nel margine delle ultime 24 pp. della "Corona").

1671. "Pianta di Villa Adriana desunta, come indicato nell'elegante cartiglio col titolo, dalla misteriosa pianta di Pirro Ligorio attraverso la copia elaborata da Francesco Contini per ordine del cardinale Francesco Barberini. Contenuta nel volume ""Latium, id est, nova et parallela Latii tum veteris tum novi descriptio"" - Amsterdam , 1671 - rappresenta la prima pianta della villa pubblicata, a distanza di quasi un secolo dalla morte dell'architetto degli Este. Recenti studi hanno dimostrato che in realtà non esista alcuna pianta del Ligorio ma che il rilievo e il disegno sono opera originale di Francesco Contini. Incisione in rame, piccole macchie d'inchiostro e una lieve brunitura ai margini, per il resto in buone condizioni." "Map of Villa Adriana deduced, as shown in the elegant cartouche, by the mysterious plan of Pirro Ligorio through the copy drawn up by Francesco Contini by order of Cardinal Francesco Barberini.

L'opera del Polidoro, segretario del Duca di Urbino, abbraccia tutti i rami possibili dello scibile del tempo (medicina, scienze, politica, religione, magia, astrologia, occultismo, teatro, leggi, navigazione, filosofia, orologi, musica, agricoltura, caccia, pesca, armi, giochi, arte, colori, seta, prostituzione, invenzione della stampa, enologia e quant'altro), una marea di nozioni atte a soddisfare anche le domande (cinquecentesche) più astruse. Volume d'erudizione, dunque e di piacevole consultazione. Fa specie che anche ques'opera sia finita sotto l'occhio grifagno della Santa Inquisizione controriformista che lo mise all'indice e ne permise nuovamente la diffusione dopo un'accurata expurgatio. Trovare in circolazione, soprattutto in Italia una copia in versione non purgata è fatica sisifea.

Athanasius KIRCHER (1601 circa - 1680)
1671. "Bella carta topografica, composta da tre fogli, dedicata a Frascati - l'antica Tusculum - e alle ville papali del suo territorio. Simbolo di prestigio dell' aristocrazia romana, erano destinate all'attività di rappresentanza ed al soggiorno estivo della corte pontificia. Da iniziali case di campagna circondate da terre coltivate e da boschi, divennero veri e propri palazzi signorili, grazie all'intervento dei più valenti architetti ed artisti dei secoli XVI e XVII, fra i quali il Vignola, il Vasanzio, Giacomo della Porta, Giovanni Fontana, Borromini ed il Vanvitelli. Tra il '700 e l'800 erano meta del Gran Tour. La tavola proviene dall'opera ""Latium, id est, nova et parallela Latii tum veteris tum novi descriptio"", pubblicata ad Amsterdam nel 1671. L'opera s'inserisce nella lunga tradizione corografica, ma a differenza delle pubblicazioni dei predecessori, Kircher delimita lo studio alla sola area del Lazio.

PUFENDORF, SAMUEL von & OLDENBURGER, PHILIPP ANDREAS)
1671 - N.p., (1682?). 8:o. (48),159,(1 blank),1-411,(2) pp. + N.p., (1682?). 8:o. 60,(4 blanks) pp. Contemporary vellum with neat MS title on spine, sprinkled edges. Slight foxing and a few rust stains. A nice copy from Biby Manor in Sweden. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet does not mention this edition. Possibly VD17 23:686483U and VD17 23:686485K, respectively, which probably were published together. "Pacifici a Lapide" is a pseudonym for the legal scientist Philipp Andreas Oldenburger. In 1661, Pufendorf became professor of natural law in the Calvinistic town of Heidelberg, where he wrote the present work, first published in 1667 under the pseudonym "Severini de Monzambano". The book was a critique of the old-fashioned constitution of the Holy Roman Empire. Pufendorf was suspected to be the author of the work and his position in Heidelberg therefore became somewhat insecure. Through his brother Esaias he was offered the chair of natural and public law at the University of Lund in Sweden. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
