      Fine engraved frontis. & four folding engraved plates by Romeyn de Hooghe. Woodcut printer's device on title. 24 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 649 (wrongly numbered "641"), [45], one blank leaf, 24 pp. Four parts in one vol. Thick 12mo, cont. vellum over boards. Leiden: Hack, 1672. [bound with]: -. In Funere Pauli Merulae Historiarum Professoris in Academia Batavorum, & Foederatarum Provinciarum Historiographi, Oratio, in qua de vita scriptisque ejus disseritur. Woodcut printer's device on title. 4 p.l., 64 pages. 12mo. Leiden: Hack, 1672. I. 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.

(...) There is a picturesqueness and dramatic interest about them, especially as seen by the half lights in which sitting so far off, we...necessarily view them, that makes them quite entertaining, and, indeed an exhibition of Elizabethan habits, manners, and peculiarities." (Wallace). The period covered by Choyce Cases is 1557-1606.

        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 true prophecies or prognostications of Michael Nostradamus, physician to Henry II, Francis II, and Charles IX, Kings of France, and one of the best astronomers that ever were. A work full of curiosity and learning

      Thomas Ratcliffe and Nathaniel Thompson, London 1672 - Title in red and black. Without the frontispiece portrait, missing in about half the copies extant. Contemporary calf, spine gilt with red morocco label; some leaves browned and foxed, otherwise a sound copy with the book label of Stewart of Glassertoun. First edition in English of the book of prophecies of Nostradamus, first printed in French in 1555 under the title Les propheties. It was originally done in three installments, the first containing 353 quatrains, or four-line poems. 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).

First edition of a famous French fable book, beautifully illustrated by the most famous artists of the day. The book contains 100 fables by Antoine Houdar de La Motte (1672-1731), modelled after the fables by Jean de La Fontaine, the most important French fable author ever. Of special interest is La Motte-Houdart's introductory essay on the genre of the fable, setting out rules to be followed, based on the classical ideals of true likeness, unity and proper arrangement. He intends to rival both Aesop and La Fontaine.The book at the same time represents a milestone in French book illustration, introducing Rococo miniatures or vignettes, including 62 by the interior and costume designer Claude Gillon, one of his few works as a book-illustrator. The "Actor's fable" is dedicated to him.Binding rubbed with a few small defects; some slight staining and thumbing. Very good copy.

Contemporary calf, expertly rebacked to style, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second, the other with an overall repeat decoration in giltScarce set of Ogilby's English editions of Nieuhoff's and Dapper's accounts of the early Dutch embassies to China: the most comprehensive descriptions of China in the 17th century and among the most beautifully illustrated works on the region from that period.The first work by Nieuhoff first appeared in Dutch in 1665. It describes the embassy to China led by Pieter van Goyer and Jakob de Keyser on behalf of the Dutch East India Company. Setting out from Batavia, they arrived in Canton on 17 March 1656, and were in Nanking by 17 July. Chinese officialdom, court etiquette and the opposition of the Jesuits (including Father Adams) conspired to prevent any major trading concessions being granted by the Emperor Chun-Chi. The embassy returned to Batavia on 31 March 1657. Nieuhoff, an eyewitness in his position as Steward to the Ambassadors, includes many incidental remarks on the manners and customs of the Chinese, together with a second part comprising a general description of the Chinese Empire. The fine plates and illustrations show town views in China, Tibet and Tartary, together with subjects such as costume and natural history, most of which "appear to have been based on Nieuhoff's own sketches" (Lach and Van Kley, p. 484). Ogilby's translation, first published in 1669 and with a second edition, as here, published in 1672, includes excerpts from Kircher's China Monumentis (1667). The second edition contains the same plates as the first, though is entirely reset in a slightly larger format (i.e. to be more uniform with the Atlas Chinensis).Following van Goyer and de Keyser's embassy in 1656-1657 to the Grand Tartar Cham Emperor of China, the Dutch dispatched a number of subsequent embassies. The accounts of these various journeys are here collected by Dapper, most notably including the 1663-64 expedition along the Fukien coast by Admiral Balthasar Boort and the 1667 embassy led by Pieter Van Hoorn. Van Hoorn "reached Peking by way of Fukien province and stayed there from [June 20, 1667] to [August 5, 1667] ... Van Hoorn's embassy failed to secure the trading privileges from the K'ang-hsi emperor and actually led in 1668 to the revocation of all Dutch trade in China" (Howgego G85). Dapper's account was first published in Amsterdam in 1670. The following year, John Ogilby published the first English translation. Interestingly, on the title page of the present work, Ogilby misattributes the original Dutch work to Montanus instead of Dapper, though Lach and Van Kley suggests that his "confusion is understandable. Montanus and Dapper seem to have formed a partnership for the compilation of these large, illustrated volumes on far-away lands" (Lach and Van Kley, p. 491). Like Nieuhoff's earlier work, Dapper's account is beautifully illustrated with views and maps, and notably include four engravings of Buddhist iconography "obviously of Chinese provenance" (Lach and Van Kley, p. 491).Together, Ogilby's translations of Nieuhoff and Dapper form the most comprehensive English descriptions of China in the 17th century. The English editions are both beautifully printed and extensively illustrated. Beyond their accounts of specific embassies, each work includes general descriptions of China's government, religion, customs and history. Based in part on prior works, including those by Trigault, Semedo, Martini and Kircher, each work also contains information unique to the observations from the accounts of each embassy.Sets comprised of both separately-issued works are very rare.[Nieuhoff:] Cordier Sinica III.2347; cf.

[With:] Atlas Chinensis: Being a Second Part of a Relation of Remarkable Passages in Two Embassies from the East-India Company of the United Provinces to the Vice-Roy Singlamong and General Taising Lipovi, and to Konchi, Emperor of China and East-Tartary .

      London 1672 - (16 1/8 x 10 1/2 inches). [Nieuhoff:] Title in red and black. Engraved additional title, double-page map of China, 18 plates (1 double-page), 94 engraved illustrations within the text. [Dapper:] Title in red and black. Engraved frontispiece, 40 engraved plates and maps (2 double-page maps, 38 plates [31 double-page, 1 folding]), 57 engraved illustrations within the text. Contemporary calf, expertly rebacked to style, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second, the other with an overall repeat decoration in gilt Scarce set of Ogilby's English editions of Nieuhoff's and Dapper's accounts of the early Dutch embassies to China: the most comprehensive descriptions of China in the 17th century and among the most beautifully illustrated works on the region from that period. The first work by Nieuhoff first appeared in Dutch in 1665. It describes the embassy to China led by Pieter van Goyer and Jakob de Keyser on behalf of the Dutch East India Company. Setting out from Batavia, they arrived in Canton on 17 March 1656, and were in Nanking by 17 July. Chinese officialdom, court etiquette and the opposition of the Jesuits (including Father Adams) conspired to prevent any major trading concessions being granted by the Emperor Chun-Chi. The embassy returned to Batavia on 31 March 1657. Nieuhoff, an eyewitness in his position as Steward to the Ambassadors, includes many incidental remarks on the manners and customs of the Chinese, together with a second part comprising a general description of the Chinese Empire. The fine plates and illustrations show town views in China, Tibet and Tartary, together with subjects such as costume and natural history, most of which "appear to have been based on Nieuhoff's own sketches" (Lach and Van Kley, p. 484). Ogilby's translation, first published in 1669 and with a second edition, as here, published in 1672, includes excerpts from Kircher's China Monumentis (1667). The second edition contains the same plates as the first, though is entirely reset in a slightly larger format (i.e. to be more uniform with the Atlas Chinensis). Following van Goyer and de Keyser's embassy in 1656-1657 to the Grand Tartar Cham Emperor of China, the Dutch dispatched a number of subsequent embassies. The accounts of these various journeys are here collected by Dapper, most notably including the 1663-64 expedition along the Fukien coast by Admiral Balthasar Boort and the 1667 embassy led by Pieter Van Hoorn. Van Hoorn "reached Peking by way of Fukien province and stayed there from [June 20, 1667] to [August 5, 1667] . Van Hoorn's embassy failed to secure the trading privileges from the K'ang-hsi emperor and actually led in 1668 to the revocation of all Dutch trade in China" (Howgego G85). Dapper's account was first published in Amsterdam in 1670. The following year, John Ogilby published the first English translation. Interestingly, on the title page of the present work, Ogilby misattributes the original Dutch work to Montanus instead of Dapper, though Lach and Van Kley suggests that his "confusion is understandable. Montanus and Dapper seem to have formed a partnership for the compilation of these large, illustrated volumes on far-away lands" (Lach and Van Kley, p. 491). Like Nieuhoff's earlier work, Dapper's account is beautifully illustrated with views and maps, and notably include four engravings of Buddhist iconography "obviously of Chinese provenance" (Lach and Van Kley, p. 491). Together, Ogilby's translations of Nieuhoff and Dapper form the most comprehensive English descriptions of China in the 17th century. The English editions are both beautifully printed and extensively illustrated. Beyond their accounts of specific embassies, each work includes general descriptions of China's government, religion, customs and history. Based in part on prior works, including those by Trigault, Semedo, Martini and Kircher, each work also contains information unique to the observations from [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Experimenta Nova

      1st Edition Amsterdam: Johanned Jansson Waesberge, 1672. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE GREAT SCIENTIFIC CLASSICS: "Describes the invention of the air pump and the famous experiment with the Magdeburg hemispheres, in which two teams of eight horses were employed in an attempt to pull apart two copper hemispheres from which the air had been withdrawn. Guericke also describes the invention of the first electrical machine, which generated the first visible and audible electric charges" (Honeyman). "In 1650 Guericke constructed the first air pump, which he used to create a vacuum in various containers. He showed that sound would not travel in a vacuum, and furthermore that a vacuum would not support combustion or animal life. In 1654 Guericke gave an impressive demonstration in front of the emperor Ferdinand III, of the force of atmospheric pressure. Two identical copper hemispheres 12 feet (3.66 m) in diameter were joined together. When the air was pumped out, 16 horses could not pull them apart although when the air reentered the hemispheres they fell apart by themselves. He also showed that 20 men could not hold a piston in a cylinder once the air had been evacuated from one end of it... In 1663 he built the first electrical friction machine by rotating a sulfur globe against a cloth... The results of these and other experiments were published in his Experimental nova Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio (1672; New Magdeburg Experiments Concerning Empty Space)" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists).The magnificent large folding plate of the great public experiment with the horses and hemispheres is one of the most celebrated and reproduced images in all of science.Experimenta nova Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio [New Magdeburg Experiments Concerning Empty Space]. Amsterdam: Johanned Jansson Waesberge, 1672. Contemporary full vellum (possibly reset). Illustrated throughout, with engraved title, engraved portrait, 7 full-page engraved plates (one repeated), 2 double-page engraved plates and 24 engraved diagrams and figures in text.

One of two octavo editions, published in England shortly after the initial quarto and with copperplates identical to the quarto version. Willis recognized the difference between the symptoms of gross brain disease and those of mental illness. Because he postulated a disturbance of the brain and nerves in terms of disordered "animal spirits" in the absence of pathological findings, he is often considered the first to have equated mind disease with brain disease. Also includes probably the earliest description of general paralysis, and the paracusis of Willis. Near Fine.
