        The Anatomy of Vegetables Begun

      First edition of the founding text of scientific botany. Author Nehemiah Grew began his career as a physician but soon developed an interest in plant anatomy, in part because the subject had not yet been rigorously investigated. "Grew was a conscious pioneer in a hitherto neglected area...  His work was primarily marked by his brilliant observation and description of plants and their component parts; having begun by making observations using only the naked eye, Grew supplemented these with the use of a microscope under the tutelage of his colleague Hooke. His presentations to the society began in 1672-4 with the roots, branches, and trunks of plants, proceeding thereafter to their leaves, flowers, fruit, and seeds. In each area he was innovative, studying for the first time many features of plants that have since been taken for granted, such as their cell-like structure and the growth rings in wood, and deploying techniques which have since become commonplace, such as the use of transverse, radial, and tangential longitudinal sections to analyse the structure of stems and roots. He was also an innovator in the terminology he used to describe plants, first using such terms as 'radicle' or 'parenchyma', a word adapted from its use in animal anatomy by Francis Glisson. Grew was primarily interested in the morphology and taxonomy of plants, but this led him to study plant physiology; he thus considered how buds grew, how seeds developed, and other related topics. He also recognized the sexual nature of plant reproduction, though, with characteristic modesty, he acknowledged that this idea had already occurred to the physician Sir Thomas Millington" (ODNB). The Anatomy of Vegetables was Grew's first and most important book, and was not superseded until the 19th century. With a General Account of Vegetation Founded Thereon. London: for Spencer Hickman, 1672. Octavo. Contemporary calf rebacked to style. 3 folding engraved plates. A few contemporary annotations in ink. Sympathetically rebacked with professional repairs to corners and edges, unevenly trimmed slightly affecting some words in the dedication and on a few other pages, some fraying and minor worming to fore-edge, a little spotting and toning to contents, professional tissue repairs to the edges of the Royal Society permission leaf and title page, minor dampstaining to margins of final leaves. A very good copy. Bibliography: Norman 944;  Dibner 21; Wing G-1946; Morton, pp. 178-195.

      sumptibus Johannis Christophori Tarnovii, Leipzig (= Lipsiae) 1672 - Editio post claudicantem & mendosam Gallicanam tertia. Leipzig (= Lipsiae), sumptibus Johannis Christophori Tarnovii, 1672. Fol. Tb. in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, mit Kupferallegorie, 9 nn. Bll., 1360 S., (Index:) 83 Bll. Zeitgenössischer blindgeprägter Schweinslederband auf 5 Bünden geheftet. (Exlibris und kl. St.a. T.). Der vorliegende wichtige Codexkommentar kam zuerst 1663 heraus. - Brunnemann (1608-1672) studierte zunächst in den Jahren 1627-30 Theologie in Wittenberg, ab 1632 dann die Jurisprudenz in Frankfurt an der Oder. Im Jahre 1638 erfolgte die Promotion zum Dr. iur., 1640 wurde er Professor der Institutionen, 1645 der Pandekten und schliesslich 1646 des Codex (Professor primarius in Frankfurt an der Oder). Auf wissenschaftlichem Gebiet war Brunnemann der profilierteste Gegner von Benedikt Carpzov, eine Gegnerschaft, die oftmals starke Polemisierungen erfuhr. Der vorliegende Codexkommentar ist aus Privatvorlesungen hervorgegangen, die Brunnemann 15 Jahre lang gehalten hat, später (seit 1646) publice hielt. Mehr als der Pandektenkommentar diente dieser zur Vorbereitung auf die Rechtspraxis. Die gesamte forensische Jurisprudenz, die einschlägigen Monographien und Kommentare - vor allem aus dem deutschsprachigen Rechtsraum - sind eingearbeitet. Der Kommentar spiegelt das geltende Recht in der Mitte des 17. Jahrhunderts wider. Es ist der erste juristische Großkommentar zum geltenden Recht in Deutschland, der auch europaweit eine Rezeption erfahren hat. Die Legalordnung des justinjanischen Codex diente der Nutzbarkeit im Geltungsbereich des europäischen Jus Commune. Dogmatisch besonders interessant sind die Teile, die das Prozeßrecht betreffen.

        Vida do veneravel Padre Joseph de Anchieta da Companhia de Iesu, Taumaturgo do Nouo Mundo, na Provincia do Brasil ?.

Overall in fine condition. Bookplate of Mons. Nabuco. Armorial bookplate of Joaquim de Sousa-Leão, printed in England, signed in print with tiny initials W.P.B., dated 1927. (16 ll.), 593 pp., (1 l.), 95 pp., lacking leaf Lll4, the divisional title to the "Poema". *** FIRST EDITION of this biography of the "Apostle of Brazil," an invaluable source of information for the history of Brazil and the earliest Jesuit missions there in the second half of the sixteenth century. The work has long been recognized as very rare. When the centennial of Brazilian independence was being celebrated in 1922, the President of Portugal gave a copy of this work to the President of Brazil; before he could do so, however, a special law had to be passed allowing the volume to be taken out of Portugal. In 1926, Holmes listed it among the rarest books of the Oliveira Lima collection. Borba notes that "copies complete with the portrait are very rare today." The Catalogue of the John Carter Brown Library comments that this life does not seem to derive wholly from Beretario's 1617 Latin biography, although Backer-Sommervogel stated that all later biographies derived from that one. The second edition of the Vida appeared only in 1943. Anchieta (1534-1597), known as the "Apostle of Brazil" or the "Thaumatourgos of the New World," was one of the most important figures in sixteenth-century Brazil. He went there in 1553 (see p. 6) and, with 13 others, founded the Jesuit school at Piratininga, later the site of São Paulo (pp. 17-54). There he taught Latin to the Indians and wrote the first grammar and vocabulary in their language, Tupi. In 1563 he and Father Manuel de Nobrega went to Iperoig to negotiate peace with the Tamoyos (pp. 73-98). "It is more than probable that this embassy was the salvation of the Portuguese colonies," writes Southey (I, 228). This biography also provides information on the Indians, on Jesuit missions, on Anchieta's disciples, on the rebellion of the Tamoyos and Tupis, on the French attack on Rio de Janeiro, and on the arrival in 1582 of a 16-vessel Spanish fleet under Diego Florez Valdes that was on its way to secure the Strait of Magellan (pp. 270-74). Pages 443-593 contain Anchieta's 5,786-verse Latin poem "De beata Virgine Dei Matre Maria." Anchieta, while negotiating with the Tamoyos at Iperoig, vowed to write a poem on the Virgin's life in order to keep himself from being tempted by Indian women. Since he had no paper or writing instruments (so the story goes), he traced the verses on the sand and memorized what he had written each day. The poem was first published in Vasconcellos' Chronica da Companhia de Jesu do Estado do Brasil, 1663, and went through many later editions. The Vida is beautifully printed by one of Portugal's greatest seventeenth-century typographers. This copy not only has the portrait (often lacking), but has a good impression of it - usually it is very faint. The portrait shows Anchieta surrounded by the wild animals of Brazil: jaguars, snakes, parrots, etc. The paper is thin but nearly opaque; in most copies, it is so thin as to be almost transparent. Simão de Vasconcellos (1596-1671), a native of Porto, grew up in Brazil and became a Jesuit at Bahia, where he later served as vice-rector of the Jesuit College and promoted the construction of what became the cathedral. He had great influence among his contemporaries, making enormous donations to the poor and acting as confessor to viceroys. His Chronica da Companhia de Jesu do Estado do Brasil, Lisbon 1663, is another fundamental work on sixteenth-century Brazil, as is his Vida do P. João de Almeida. Provenance: Joaquim de Sousa-Leão, distinguished Brazilian historian and diplomat of Portuguese ancestry, was a significant book and art collector. He wrote on art and historical subjects, being an expert on the Flemish painter Frans Post: see Frans Post 1612-1680, Amsterdam: A.L.

        Rare collection of published letters by Isaac Newton on his theory of light, and on Newton's telescope. [Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, volume 7].

      - London, John Martyn, 1672-1673. 4to (22.0 x 16.1 cm). This is a collection of all original issues forming the true first edition of volume 7 of the "Philosophical Transactions" (issues 81-91), including a general title page for the entire volume. These issues comprise pages 3,999-5,172, plus an index and four foldout plates. Many figures in the text. Contemporary leather panels with a fine, old style leather spine with five raised, gilt-ornamented bands, rich gilt compartments with floral pattern and two burgundy morocco labels with gilt title. Mottled edges.l One of the most important volumes of the 'Philosophical Transactions'. Isaac Newton published his famous theory of light and colours in volume 6 (no. 80) of the Transactions. It was a publication that shook the scientific world of that day, and is still considered one of the cornerstones of science. Naturally, a lively debate followed - staged partly in the "Philosophical Transactions" during the following year. His theory, which included the notion that white light was in fact a combination of colours, also explained chromatic abberation. Consequently, Newton turned his attention to telescopes and devised a new type of telescope that combined refraction with reflection. It is the first paper in this volume, which is the collection of original issues of the Transactions from 1672 and 1673, and thus a fascinating window to the period just after the publication of Newton's theory of light. Apart from Newton's answers to his critics on his new theory of light, and some letters of his critics (the Jesuit Ignatius Pardies in particular used the Transactions to publish his critiques on Newton's theory), this volume contains several additional papers by Newton and others on Newton's telescope. This type of telescope, with a cleverly constructed short tube, is still very popular among amateur astronomists. "Newton built his reflecting telescope because he suspected it could prove his theory that white light is composed of a spectrum of colours. Colour distortion (chromatic aberration) was the primary fault of refracting telescopes of Newton's day, and there were many theories as to what caused it. During the mid-1660s with his work on the theory of colour, Newton concluded this defect was caused by the lens of the refracting telescope behaving the same as prisms he was experimenting with, breaking white light into a rainbow of colours around bright astronomical objects. If this was true, then chromatic aberration could be eliminated by building a telescope which did not use a lens - a reflecting telescope." (Wikipedia). Furthermore there are important contributions on, for example, astronomy and science by Flamsteed, Cassini, Hevelius, Boyle, Huygens and others, and natural history by Lister, and others. This volume contains the following contributions by Newton (which deviates from those listed in Gray, p. 45, who records one paper less): "An accompt of a new catadioptrical telescope, invented by Mr. Newton", pp. 4004-4009, with a folding plate; "An extract of a letter, received very lately (March 19th) from the inventor of this new telescope", pp. 4009-4010; "Mr. Newton's letter to the publisher of March 26, 1672, containing some more suggestions about his new telescope" pp. 4032-4035; "An extract of another letter of the same to the publisher, dated 30 March. 1672. by way of answer to some objections, made by an ingenious French philosopher to the new reflecting telescope", pp. 4034-4034; "Mr. Isaac Newton's considerations upon part of a letter of monsieur de Bercé printed in the eighth French Memoire, containing the catadrioptrical telescope, pretended to be improv'd and refined by M. Cassegrain", pp. 4056-4059; "Some experiments propos'd in relation to Mr. Newtons Theory of light, printed in Numb. 80; together with the observations made thereupon by the author of that theory; communicated in a letter of his from Cambridge, April 13. 1672.", pp. 4059-4062; "Mr Newtons letter [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First illustrated edition of this important collection of texts taken from ancient authors concerning the funeral rites and ceremonies, burial places, etc., of antiquity, particularly Roman customs. There are descriptions of cremations, the different postures and orientations of the body, types of tombs and memorials, funeral processions, etc. The first edition appeared in 1605. Each of the four parts begins with an engraved folding plate executed by Romeyn de Hooghe. The first plate illustrates the corpse of a noblewoman on an ornate litter transported by a group of soldiers while attendants wave farewell; the second plate illustrates the funeral procession through the city with soldiers, wailing attendants and mourners carrying torches and wreaths; the third plate depicts the cremation of a body upon a pyre of logs (the attendants in the foreground have assembled animal sacrifices and even several humans, likely slaves); and the fourth plate shows them offering these dead animals along with wine and fruits before an elaborate memorial covered with garlands and wreaths. The engraved title page depicts another flaming cremation, situated on an elaborately decorated pyre several stories high; on top, a chariot and horses have been prepared for the final trip to the afterworld. At the end there is an appendix by Nicolas Rigault (1577-1654), on how to protect the corpse from parasites. II. First edition of Kirchmann's funeral oration for Paul Merula (1558-1607), a Leiden professor. Kirchmann (1575-1643), German antiquarian, and taught at Rostock and was director of the gymnasium at Lubeck. Nice copies. ❧ Landwehr, Romeyn de Hooghe, 20. N.B.G., Vol. 27, cols. 782-83.

"Like Lambard, Tothill, and a few similar works, this volume is one which those great cases that occur from time to time, and stimulate inquiry into the very foundations of legal science, will occasionally call forth, and it ought, therefore, to be in every public law library.

        Anatomia chirurgica cioè Istoria anatomica dell'ossa, e muscoli del corpo humano, con la descrittione de vasi piu riguardeuoli che scorrono per le parti esterne, & un breue trattato del moto, che chiamano circolatione del sangue .

      Rome, Nicoloò Angelo Tinassi, 1672. Small8vo. In 18th century half calf with red leather title-label to spine and gilt lettering and ornamentation. Lower capital with a bit of wear and corners slightly bumped. Frontispiece mounted and with a closed tear (no loss). Title-page with light soiling and previous owner's name in contemporary hand. Dampstain affecting lower part of outer margin of Pp. 397-432 and Pp. 449-455. Some occasional browning and brownspotting, but overall fine; a nice copy. (26), 455, (1) pp. Engraved frontispiece. The rare first edition of the first book devoted entirely to surgical anatomy. Genga's milestone work founded the discipline of anatomical surgery; it was frequently reprinted and remained a widely used manual for decades after its first appearance. Genga furthermore, in the tract appended to this work (i.e the "Breve Discorso" on the circulation of the blood, pp. 420-448), showed himself to be one of the first Italians to accept Harvey's theory on the circulation of blood. "Though anatomy was hitherto cultivated with much success as illustrating the natural history and morbid states of the human body, yet little had been done for the elucidation of local diseases, and the surgical means by which they may have been successfully treated. The idea of applying anatomical knowledge directly to this purpose appears to have originated with Barnardin Genga, a Roman surgeon, who published in 1672, at Rome, a work entitled "Surgical Anatomy, or the Anatomical History of the Bones and Muscles of the Human Body, with the description of the Blood-vessels". This work, which reached a second edition in 1687, is highly creditable to the author, who appears to have studied intimately the mutual relations of different parts." (Encyclopaedia Britannica). This foundational work, Genga's first work, was extremely influential and widely used. It was reprinted a number of times within the following decades. The first edition of it is of great scarcity. Most of the bibliographies only have later editions, and one of the few copies that are listed on OCLC is incomplete, lacking the title-page. We have only been able to locate one copy at auction within the last 40 years (in 1979).

        An elegant King Charles II signed military order, from the Third Anglo-Dutch War

      England, November 5, 1672. 9" x 13.5". "Manuscript document signed by King Charles II as ""Charles II"", and dated ""the Fifth day of November 1672."" Bifold on laid paper, 9"" x 13.5"". All pages blank except therecto of the first leaf. Embossed official seal upper left with wax remnants on the inside of the document. Seal ghosting to the four outer corners. Pale handling marks, slight ink smudging, greying to verso of second blank leaf, expected folds with tiny pin holes of paper loss along the folds and a few random locations, all now expertly repaired.An elegant military document ordering John Pigott to complete his regiment ""to the number of one hundred soldiers"", and then march his soldiers to the ""City of Cantorbury where you are to stay and expect our further orders"" The order also makes reference to George Villiers, the Duke of Buckingham who came to power in 1667 along with five politicians known as the Cabal, with the ending of the second Dutch War. On the lighter side, the document also requests Pigott to control the behavior of his men and to ""be very careful that your soldiers do behave themselves Civilly and duly pay their quarters where they now, and upon their march and, where they shall be quartered as aforesaid."" The early years of Charles' reign saw an appalling plague (1665) and the Great Fire in 1666 which led to the substantial rebuilding of the city of London. Between 1665 and 1667 England was at war with the Dutch (the Second Anglo-Dutch War), ending in a Dutch victory. This military order was the result of a secret treaty that Charles signed in 1670 with Louis XIV of France. He undertook to convert to Catholicism and support the French against the Dutch (culminating in the Third Anglo-Dutch War 1672-1674), in return for which he would receive subsidies from France, thus enabling his some limited room for maneuver with parliament. A most handsome, early document from 1672 boldly signed by King Charles."

        Leeuwekaart - Wilhelm Serlin, 1672.

      LEEUWEKAART VAN DE XVII PROVINCI?N?Geographischer L?we vorstellend die gesammte XVII Niederl?ndische Provintzien sammt einer kurtzen Beschreib[ung] und Abtheilung derselbigen wie viele St?dte und D?rfer im einer jeden zu finden?. Kopergravure uitgegeven in Frankfurt am Main door Wilhelm Serlin, 1672. Afm. (voorstelling): 29,4 x 29,9 cm (incl. tekst 41 x 30,5 cm.)De Nederlandse leeuw is een begrip. Het dier staat symbool voor de kracht en moed van het land. De leeuw speelt een belangrijke rol bij voetbal in onze tegenwoordige tijd, maar de verbeelding van Nederland als leeuw werd ge?ntroduceerd in moeilijke tijden, aan het eind van de 16de eeuw. Vanaf het midden van de Opstand tegen de Spanjaarden, stonden de Nederlanden model voor een reeks leeuwekaarten die op de markt kwamen.De leeuwekaart fungeerde niet alleen als nuttige landkaart, maar werd als statement vaak aan de wand gehangen. Een uiting van actief beleefd burgerschap, van trots, van zelfbewustzijn en diende in een handelskantoor of overheidsgebouw vaak als spectaculair visitekaartje.Deze zeldzame Duitstalige uitgave van deze leeuwekaart werd uitgegeven als los blad in de Holl?ndischer Merkurius, een ?almanak?, een soort voorloper van onze huidige nieuwsbladen en kranten. Uitgever Serlin liet voor zijn kaart de leeuwekaart die hij had gezien in de Franstalige Le Mercure Holandois nagraveren. Een bijbehorend blad met een voorstelling van Lodewijk XIV, zijn broer en zoon te paard wijzend naar de kaart, nam Serlin elders in zijn almanak op.Prijs: ?4.250,- (incl. lijst).

        TITLES OF HONOR

      Printed by E. Tyker and R. Holt for Thomas Dring, London 1672 - 315 x 205 mm. (12 3/8 x 8 1/8"). 18 p.l., 756 pp. Third Edition. VERY STRIKING CONTEMPORARY CRIMSON MOROCCO, ELABORATELY TOOLED IN GILT, BY THE NAVAL BINDER, covers with densely gilt narrow oval framed within a panel consisting of similarly gilt corners and bursting with copious floral sprays, border of floral tools connected by semi-circles, beautifully rebacked preserving original backstrip (corners also apparently with tiny restorations), raised bands, gilt panel decoration resembling a Maltese cross, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt and lightly gauffered. Woodcut headpieces and decorative initials, engraved frontispiece of the author, one engraved double-page plate, and 49 illustrations in the text (seven engraved, the rest woodcuts). Printed in various typefaces, including Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Fraktur, and black letter; title page with signature of J. Somers; "Hadriani Beverlandi" inscribed on final page. Wing S-2440; Lowndes III, 2237. Two minor abrasions and a short scratch to upper cover, spine with a hint of fading, text with light foxing, mostly at edges (rather frequent but never serious), paper flaw on G2, other trivial imperfections, but A WONDERFUL VOLUME, the internal problems of no great consequence, and the binding glittering with gold. Along with the binding done for Elkanah Settle (see item #46, below), this is the most splendid early English binding in this catalogue, and of the two, the present one is more elegant, with beautiful and intricate ornamentation realized by a very skilled decorator. Our artisan was dubbed the Naval Binder by H. M. Nixon because most of his work was done for the Navy Office. According to Maggs Catalogue 1075 (item #91), "the bindery was active in the 1670s and 1680s, producing well proportioned and carefully tooled bindings," and their style and prestige were esteemed sufficiently to spawn imitators. Specimens of their work can be found in the British Library (Davis Gift), at the Wormsley Library, in Nixon, and elsewhere, all of them with designs and decoration similar to ours. Called by Milton "the chief of learned men [in England]," Selden (1584-1654) amassed a fortune from a lucrative law practice, but he is better known as a legal antiquary and oriental scholar, and he is known best of all as the central figure in the famous "Table Talk," published in 1689, which recorded his conversation as full of wit, shrewd analysis, memorable anecdote, and common sense. In the present exhaustive work, he discusses in close detail the history of titles and dignities of kings and emperors and then of lesser orders of nobility, as well as the laws relating to ceremonial preference. First published in 1614, the present work, in the words of Britannica, "has remained [down to the 20th century] the most comprehensive and trustworthy work of its kind that we possess." Because this is the kind of book that would be subjected to repeated use, it is seldom found in good condition in today's marketplace.

The second installment, containing 289 further quatrains, was printed in 1557, while the third installment of 300 new quatrains was printed in 1558, but apparently only survives as part of the "works" which was published after his death. Each quatrain is a prediction of future events, which Nostradamus claimed was based upon astrological assessment of the quality of an occurrence such as a birth, death, wedding, etc. Much of the work, especially the more dramatic prophecies, apparently paraphrase the endeavors of earlier writers such as Livy, Plutarch, and other classical historians. Many of his astrological references are taken almost word for word from Richard Roussat's Livre de l'estat et mutations des temps (1549-1550).One of his major prophetic sources was evidently the Mirabilis Liber of 1522, which contained a range of prophecies by Pseudo-Methodius, the Tiburtine Sibyl, Joachim of Fiore, Savonarola and others. Nostradamus was one of the first to re-paraphrase these prophecies in French, which may explain why they are credited to him. Further material was gleaned from the De honesta disciplina of 1504 by Petrus Crinitus, which included extracts from Michael Psellos's De daemonibus, and the De Mysteriis Aegyptiorum, a book on Chaldean and Assyrian magic by Iamblichus, a fourth-century Neo-Platonist.Most of the quatrains deal with disasters, such as plagues, earthquakes, wars, floods, invasions, murders, droughts, and battles-all undated and based on foreshadowings by the Mirabilis Liber. Some quatrains cover these disasters in overall terms; others concern a single person or small group of people. Some cover a single town, others several towns in several countries. A major, underlying theme is an impending invasion of Europe by Muslim forces from further east and south headed by the expected Antichrist, directly reflecting the then-current Ottoman invasions and the earlier Saracen equivalents, as well as the prior expectations of the Mirabilis Liber. All of this is presented in the context of the supposedly imminent end of the world.

        Leeuwekaart - Wilhelm Serlin, 1672.

      LEEUWEKAART VAN DE XVII PROVINCI?N?Geographischer L?we vorstellend die gesammte XVII Niederl?ndische Provintzien sammt einer kurtzen Beschreib[ung] und Abtheilung derselbigen wie viele St?dte und D?rfer im einer jeden zu finden?. Kopergravure uitgegeven in Frankfurt am Main door Wilhelm Serlin, 1672. Afm. (voorstelling): 29,4 x 29,9 cm (incl. tekst 41 x 30,5 cm.)De Nederlandse leeuw is een begrip. Het dier staat symbool voor de kracht en moed van het land. De leeuw speelt een belangrijke rol bij voetbal in onze tegenwoordige tijd, maar de verbeelding van Nederland als leeuw werd ge?ntroduceerd in moeilijke tijden, aan het eind van de 16de eeuw. Vanaf het midden van de Opstand tegen de Spanjaarden, stonden de Nederlanden model voor een reeks leeuwekaarten die op de markt kwamen.De leeuwekaart fungeerde niet alleen als nuttige landkaart, maar werd als statement vaak aan de wand gehangen. Een uiting van actief beleefd burgerschap, van trots, van zelfbewustzijn en diende in een handelskantoor of overheidsgebouw vaak als spectaculair visitekaartje.Deze zeldzame Duitstalige uitgave van deze leeuwekaart werd uitgegeven als los blad in de Holl?ndischer Merkurius, een ?almanak?, een soort voorloper van onze huidige nieuwsbladen en kranten. Uitgever Serlin liet voor zijn kaart de leeuwekaart die hij had gezien in de Franstalige Le Mercure Holandois nagraveren. Een bijbehorend blad met een voorstelling van Lodewijk XIV, zijn broer en zoon te paard wijzend naar de kaart, nam Serlin elders in zijn almanak op.Prijs: ?4.250,- (incl. lijst).

Bérard S. 86 f ("Ces deux éditions ont été imprimées par les Elzévirs. La première [1649] est en caractères assez gros et fort nets. Elle contient 686 pages, sans les pièces liminaires qui en contiennent 16 non chiffrées, et 5 autres également non chiffrées à la fin. La seconde [1672] est la réimpression de l'autre; elle est imprimée en caractères beaucoup plus fins, et ne contient que 486 pages. Les pièces liminaires n'en ont que 12, parce qu'elles contiennent de moins que la précédente une dédicace au Chancellier. Le volume est terminé par 4 pages non chiffrées. Il existe encore deux éditions de Hollande sous les dates de 1683 et 1685, qui sont aussi fort jolies; mais elles ne peuvent pas être attribuées aux Elzévirs, qui n'imprimaient plus à cette époque. Ces quatre éditions ont à-peu-près la même valeur. De beaux emplaires se vendent de 12 à 18 francs."). Pieters 118 auf S. 347 ("Cette édition appartient aux presses Elseviriennes d'Amst.
