        Historia Naturale. nella quale ordinatamente si tratta della diversa condition di Minere, Pietre pretiose, & altre curiosita. Con varie Historie di Piante, & Animali, sin' hora non date in luce.

      - Venice, Combi and La Noù, 1672. Folio (320 x 220mm). pp. (viii), 696, (6), title in red and black with large engraved vignette, double-page engraved plate showing the interior of Imperato's museum, and 126 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary vellum, spine with brown gilt lettered label. A fine copy of the second edition (first 1599) of this beautiful catalogue of the 'Museo' of the Neapolitan apothecary Ferrante Imperato (1550-1625) and his son Francesco. This edition was prepared by Giovanni Maria Ferro who added new material and also new illustrations to the final chapter. Imperato's collection of natural history specimens was one of the earliest of its kind in Italy and the catalogue was the first to contain both plants and animals."The museum of Ferrante and Francesco Imperato of Naples was as famous as Calceolari's and in Ferrante's 'Historia Naturale', . several pages are devoted to molluscs and some of the shells illustrated are easily indentifiable" (Dance pp. 15-16)."The catalogue is divided in 28 books with substantial sections on mining (5 books) and alchemy (9 books), the remainder being devoted to animals and vegetable specimens. Ferrante Imperato took a scientific interest in his collection and was one of the first people to recognise the mysterious 'bronteae' and 'ombriae' as meteoric stones and proved that 'Jew stones', a popular 'Wunderkammer' specimen, were in fact the pertified points of an 'echinus'. In G.M. Ferro's addenda to the catalogue is an interesting description and illustration of red and black indian ink in a Chinese ink bottle and decorated vase (p. 677)" (Grinke, From Wunderkammer to museum n. 22).Besides Ferro's added illustrations and text, the second edition differs in having an engraved view of the museum interior, whereas in the first edition the scene is represented in a much cruder woodcut. The vignette on the title depicts hills, the shore, and the sea with a variety of plants, sea and land creatures, and minerals arising under the astral influence rained down from the heavens, with the motto 'ab uno'. Outer upper corner of one leaf with old repair without loss of text. A very fine copy.Provenance: Old stamp on verso of title with crown and eagle, surrounded by text.Cobres I, p. 165 n. 16; Hunt 321; Murray I, p. 85.; Nissen BBI, 2111.

"As is stated on the title-page, Waninghen's book contains a set of account books (memorial, journal and ledger) in which are entered 100 transactions, and also 530 'questions and answers, adorned with clear explanations'. The 530 questions and answers are divided into 23 chapters according to the type of transaction or occurrence. The consecutively numbered entries in the journal – some simple and some compound – are also clearly identified by a short title . The success of the chosen combination of catechism followed by illustration is attested by the numerous issues of the work, including two editions of a French translation."

        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. Small 8vo. Near contemporary full calf biding with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. All edges of boards gilt. Hinges, capitals and corners with wear. Cords showing at front hinge, but still tight. Slight spotting to margins of title-page and some scattered brownspotting (not heavy). Overall a fine, unrestored copy with wide margins. Book plate to inside of front board and an old library stamp (Académie de Chirurgie) to title-page. (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).

      à Paris: Chez André Pralard, 1672. Fine. Chez André Pralard, à Paris 1672, Fort pet. in-4 (17x25cm), relié. - First edition due to the Abbot Joly, illustrated with 4 bands of title by Chauveau repeated and historiated initials. Brand of the printer on the title page. Translation Lombert. Binding in full brown sheepskin period. Back ornate nerves. As an exhibit in red morocco. A tear in mind. Delicate head cover; idem tail with a slit weakening the cap. In addition to the various letters and treatises written by St. Cyprian, a long critical biography was written by Abbot Joly. The importance of the work of the Bishop of Carthage is that it was not only a ds early fathers of the church with St. Augustine, but he was the rémoin of the earliest centuries of Christianity. It never ceased to profess the unity of the church and died a victim of persecution of Christians ordered by Valerian in 258. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition dû à l'abbé Joly, illustrée de 4 bandeaux de titre par Chauveau dont un répété, et de lettrines historiées.

Coiffe de tête fragile ; idem en queue avec une fente fragilisant la coiffe.  Outre les lettres et les divers traités écrits par Saint Cyprien, une longue biographie critique a été rédigé par l'abbé Joly. L'importance de l'oeuvre de l'évêque de Carthage tient au fait qu'il fut non seulement un des premiers pères de l'église avec Saint Augustin, mais qu'il fut le témoin des tous premiers siècles du christianisme. Il n'eut de cesse de professer l'unité de l'église et périt victime de la persécution des chrétiens ordonné par Valérien en 258.

The first book, of the diseases either constituting, producing, or following the natural functions of man not in health; wherein is containd, beside a new method in general, a vindication of the spleen and mother from fits attributed to them; as also a new discovery of intermitting fevers, the yellow jaundice, and other diseases, never before discovered; all cleard by anatomical experiments and chymical demonstrations, as also by their cures" - - Franciscus de le Boe Sylvius (1614-1672), professor of the practice of medicine of Leyden, was one of the foremost physicians of his time. In 1637, Sylvius, as he was called, is credited by Haller giving the first description of the lateral cerebral fissure which bears his name. Although the aqueduct from the third to the fourth ventricle had been previously noted, Sir Michael Foster says we owe to Sylvius the name of the aqueduct. Both anatomical structures are described in Sylvius's Diputationes Medicarium. To clinical neurology Sylvius contributed the observation that some tremors were always present and some appeared only during movement." Mc Henry , Histotry of Neurology, p.64.R> - "Sylvius was the first to describe the tubercles in phthisis. In the history of medicine, however, Sylvius was the most brillant representative of the iatrochemical school, founded by Paracelsus and continued by J.B. van Helmont, which reached its zenith when Sylvius defended the chemiatric conception from the Leiden chair. He was convinced that all physiological and pathological processes could be conceived perfectly in analogy in the chemical laboratory and could be explained by fermentation, effervescence, and putrefaction. Acid and alkali were considered as fundamental principles in the animal body." - - "In his therapeutics Sylvius preferred the new chemical medicines to the Galenic ones, using mercury, antimony, and zinc sulfate, among others. His rather speculative and extravagant theories included the belief that the pancreatic juice was acid and effervesced with the alkaline gall in the duodenum, and that ferments went to the heart, where he thought the blood effervesced. Considering the spleen to be the organ in which the blood is purified, he stressed its function to such an extent that he was called patronus lienis. ..." G.A.

        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. 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, hardly distinguishable from an original period binding.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 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 Berce 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 of April 13. 1672. ft. v. written to the publisher, being an answer to the foregoing letter of P. Pardies", pp. 4091-4093 (Pardies' letter, regarding Newton's theory of light, is on pp. 4087-4090); "A serie's of Quere's propounded by Mr. Isaac Newton, to be determin'd by experiments, positively and directly concluding his new Theory of light and colours; and here recommended to the industry of the lovers of experimental philosophy, as they were generously imparted to the publisher in a letter of the said Mr. Newtons of July 8. 1672.", pp. 4004 [recte 5004]-5007; "Mr. Newton's answer to the foregoing letter (By P. Pardies, regarding Newtons theory of light, on pp. 5012-5013), pp. 5014-5018; "Mr. Newtons answer to some considerations upon his doctrine of Light and colors, which doctrine was printed in Numb. 80 of the tracts.", pp. 5084-5103 (20 pp. in total).

Enrichis de Figures de plantes non décrites, d'Animaux inconnus à l'Europe, & de Cartes Geographiques de Pays dont on n'a point encore donné de Cartes

      Paris: Jacques Langlois, 1663-, 1672. Four volumes in two, folio, with a total of 14 maps and charts (ten engraved and four woodcut), including large folding maps of Australia, China, the Pacific, with the Philippines and Japan, and numerous engraved plates (many folding or double-page) of costumes, plants, animals, alphabets etc., 46 full-page woodcut plates of Mexican inscriptions and pictograms, and numerous engravings and several tables in the text; some light foxing as often seen in this work, rather less than usual, and a few stains; generally a large wide-margined copy, in very good condition, with excellent impressions of the engraving; a very good copy in contemporary calf, gilt, with red morocco title labels gilt, joints expertly renewed; covers restored at extremities. With the famous map of Pelsaert and Tasman's discoveries. One of the most important of all travel collections, lavishly illustrated, and especially significant for the first appearance of numerous descriptions of the Pacific, the Far East, Australia and the Philippines. This was the first major work on Australia and the Pacific to receive a wide European readership.The geographical scope of the collection is nearly universal, taking in the Americas, China, Japan, Siam, the Philippines, Mongolia, India, Tartary, Egypt, Persia, Arabia, Asia Minor and Russia. American material includes the Voyage de Sieur Acarete a Buenos Aires and the Voyage du Sieur *** dans la rivière de la Plate & de la par terre au Perou, as well as a translation of Thomas Gage's account of the Mexican empire. Virtually all the component parts are enriched by illustration, the choice of material sometimes unpredictable and quite idiosyncratic: it ranges from detailed charts of coastlines suitable for navigational purposes, and a number of cartographically important maps, to depictions of botanical specimens, exotic cultural practices and writing systems. The range and quirky variety makes this one of the visual feasts of travel literature.This is a copy of the complete work as it existed in 1672, in the form in which it remained for twenty-four years. In 1696 a posthumous edition appeared republishing the first four parts and adding a final, fifth part, with many of the plates re-engraved, often in reverse. The engraving of the original editions, as here, is superior.Accompanying the account of Pelsaert's discovery of Australia is the rare and famous map of Abel Tasman's discoveries. The earliest printed map devoted solely to Australia, and the first published result of Tasman's great voyages, it was Thévenot's map which gave the world a clear idea of the shape and location of the new fifth continent.The Tasman map appeared in at least four different states: in this copy it is in its third state, with corrections, and with the addition of the Tropic of Capricorn and rhumb lines. This is the appropriate form of the map to appear in a copy of the work acquired by its owner between 1672, the date of publication of the fourth part here, and the appearance of the collected edition in 1696, copies of which usually contain a fourth state of the map, the version most often seen.Thévenot's work has one of the most complicated publication histories of any illustrated travel collection, since it was published over the course of more than thirty years. Comparison of copies, even in contemporary bindings like that offered here, inevitably demonstrates some variation in organization and contents.

Enrichis de Figures de plantes non décrites, d'Animaux inconnus à l'Europe, & de Cartes Geographiques de Pays dont on n'a point encore donné de Cartes...

      Paris: Jacques Langlois, 1663-, 1672. Four volumes in two, folio, with a total of 14 maps and charts (ten engraved and four woodcut), including large folding maps of Australia, China, the Pacific, with the Philippines and Japan, and numerous engraved plates (many folding or double-page) of costumes, plants, animals, alphabets etc., 46 full-page woodcut plates of Mexican inscriptions and pictograms, and numerous engravings and several tables in the text; some light foxing as often seen in this work, rather less than usual, and a few stains; generally a large wide-margined copy, in very good condition, with excellent impressions of the engraving; a very good copy in contemporary calf, gilt, with red morocco title labels gilt, joints expertly renewed; covers restored at extremities. With the famous map of Pelsaert and Tasman's discoveries. One of the most important of all travel collections, lavishly illustrated, and especially significant for the first appearance of numerous descriptions of the Pacific, the Far East, Australia and the Philippines. This was the first major work on Australia and the Pacific to receive a wide European readership.The geographical scope of the collection is nearly universal, taking in the Americas, China, Japan, Siam, the Philippines, Mongolia, India, Tartary, Egypt, Persia, Arabia, Asia Minor and Russia. American material includes the Voyage de Sieur Acarete a Buenos Aires and the Voyage du Sieur *** dans la rivière de la Plate & de la par terre au Perou, as well as a translation of Thomas Gage's account of the Mexican empire. Virtually all the component parts are enriched by illustration, the choice of material sometimes unpredictable and quite idiosyncratic: it ranges from detailed charts of coastlines suitable for navigational purposes, and a number of cartographically important maps, to depictions of botanical specimens, exotic cultural practices and writing systems. The range and quirky variety makes this one of the visual feasts of travel literature.This is a copy of the complete work as it existed in 1672, in the form in which it remained for twenty-four years. In 1696 a posthumous edition appeared republishing the first four parts and adding a final, fifth part, with many of the plates re-engraved, often in reverse. The engraving of the original editions, as here, is superior.Accompanying the account of Pelsaert's discovery of Australia is the rare and famous map of Abel Tasman's discoveries. The earliest printed map devoted solely to Australia, and the first published result of Tasman's great voyages, it was Thévenot's map which gave the world a clear idea of the shape and location of the new fifth continent.The Tasman map appeared in at least four different states: in this copy it is in its third state, with corrections, and with the addition of the Tropic of Capricorn and rhumb lines. This is the appropriate form of the map to appear in a copy of the work acquired by its owner between 1672, the date of publication of the fourth part here, and the appearance of the collected edition in 1696, copies of which usually contain a fourth state of the map, the version most often seen.Thévenot's work has one of the most complicated publication histories of any illustrated travel collection, since it was published over the course of more than thirty years. Comparison of copies, even in contemporary bindings like that offered here, inevitably demonstrates some variation in organization and contents. Various bibliographies have been attempted, the best early one being Contributions to a Catalogue of the Lenox Library, no. III, The Voyages of Thévenot (1879) but the most thorough bibliographical description of the work to date can be found in the catalogue of the John Carter Brown Library. A full collation of this copy, which has all the required components, is available on request.This excellent set has an interesting provenance: before the French Revolution it was in the Bibliothèque du Roi in the Palais Royal, and has the library's stamp on both title-pages.

        Coelum sephiroticum Hebraeorum, per portas intelligentiae, Moysi revelatas. .. medicinae, chymiae, astronomiae, astrologiae, botanicae, zoologiae . . .

      With large printer?s device on title, 1 full page plate, 19 text engravings, and ornate woodcut head - and tailpieces. Recently bound in vellum using a an old Hebrew manuscript with a few obvious repairs; interior very clean with the occasional phrase underlined in pencil. First edition of this wonderful treatise on natural philosophy based upon an occult interpretation of the seven days of creation. According to Thorndike, this work purports ?to derive new principles of medicine, chemistry, astronomy, astrology, botany, zoology, anthropology and other sciences from the most ancient Hebraic truth through the gates of intelligence revealed to Moses.? Steeb (fl. 1672 - 1680) was influenced by the works of Pythagoras, Paracelsus, and Kircher, and Pico della Mirandola, and borrowed elements of Kabbalic thought for his interpretation of the universe and its creation. The author?s interest in celestial spheres, the creation of the earth, and the synthesis of several branches of science, religion, and the occult necessitated the invention of an array of unusual pseudoscientific diagrams to elucidate the text of his ambitious treatise. These diagrams are mostly circular (with octagonal plate marks) and many of them incorporate beautiful celestial imagery into their programs in addition to Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and various astrological and alchemical symbols. One interesting observation is Steeb?s perspective on salt, which has played a role in alchemy as the physical ?body? which survives death to reinaugurate new life. He remarks that ?sal sit ultimum in corruptione, sed & primum in generatione? (salt is the last in corruption and the first in generation). The author also makes reference to Atlantis and America in this work. A very fine copy of this unusual and highly creative treatise.

      Ric Davis, London 1672 - Willis, Thomas (1621-75). De anima brutorum. 8vo [48], 400, [16]pp. 8 engraved plates (mostly folding). Signatures R & S transposed; pl. VIII bound in upside-down. London: E. F. [for] Ric. Davis, 1672. 154 x 95 mm. Full modern calf, gilt spine, 17th century style. Light browning, slight soiling. Very good copy, in a handsome period-style binding. Faint 17th century signature on imprimatur leaf; recent owner's signature on title. First 8vo Edition, published shortly after the initial quarto and with copperplates identical to the quarto version. Garrison-Morton 1544, 4793 & 4966. 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. Hunter & Macalpine, pp. 187-92. Wing W 2826. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Il viaggio all'Indie Orientali. Con le osservationi, e successi nel medesimo, i costumi, e riti di varie nationi... con la descrittione degl' animali quadrupedi, serpenti, ucelli, piante di quel Mondo Nuovo, con le loro virtù singolari... -

      Roma, Mancini, 1672.In - 4. Legatura coeva in pergamena, dorso con nervi e titolo calligrafato. Con un'antiporta allegorica disegnata da Giulio Bersani ed incisa in rame da Pietro Santi Bartoli. (24, inclusa l'antiporta), 482, (22) pp.; timbro del Conte Francesco Cardelli di Roma (sec. XVIII) sul frontespizio; uniformi bruniture. Prima edizione di questa stimata descrizione. L?autore fu inviato in India nel 1656 dalla Sacra Congregazione di Propaganda Fide e ?la relazione che ne scrisse è forse la più importante che fosse scritta nel secolo XVII. La geografia, l?etnografia e le scienze naturali vi hanno una parte essenziale e, dei cinque libri onde si compone la relazione, il III è tutto dedicato alla descrizione geografica dell?India e dei costumi dei suoi abitanti; il IV si riferisce alla fauna ed alla flora. Pochi moderni viaggiatori dell?India mostrarono maggiore diligenza, esattezza e spirito di osservazione...? (Amat di S. Filippo, Biografia dei viaggiatori italiani, pp. 423 - 424). Murchio rientrò a Roma nel 1658, e il suo resoconto include anche ampie notizie degli altri paesi visitati, quali la Turchia, Libano, Siria, Persia, Arabia (un capitolo è dedicato a Muscat, l?attuale capitale dell?Oman), Malta, ecc.

The author went to India as a missionary in 1656, travelling through Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Persia, Arabia, Oman, Malta and other countries. After his return to Rome in 1658 he wrote this fascinating account, in which he describes places (many hitherto unknown to European travelers), people, customs, costumes, architecture, antiquities, food, natural history, etc. With an engr. allegorical frontispiece. 18th century collector?s stamp on title. Uniform browning throughout but generally a good copy bound in contemp. stiff vellum, ms. title on spine.

        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. Small 8vo. Inserted into a lovely-custommade binding of old vellum, with later elegant gilding (supposedly commissioned by the previous owner Piergiergio Borio - "P.B." in gold to spine) . Gilt line-borders with gilt ornamentel cornerpieces and gilt centrepiece to boards. Gilt ornamentations and gilt title-label to spine. Ex libris to inside of front board. Early owner's names to title-page. Engraved frontispiece with barely visible re-enforcement to inner hinge and with some small ink spots. Some sections of leaves with a worm-tract to inner margin, touching a few letters here and there. Some occasional browning and brownspotting, but overall fine. Generally a nice copy. (26), 455, (1) pp. Engraved frontispiece.. The extremely 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).

        De funeribus Romanorum libri quatuor cum appendice. Accessit et Funus parasiticum Nicolai Rigaltii

      Leiden: apud Hackios, 1672. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION. VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. Romeyn de Hooghe. 12mo., 2 parts in 1 volume: 23 ff., 649 pp. (wrongly numbered 641), 22 ff.; 24 pp. With fine etched frontispiece and 4 etched folding plates by Romeyn de Hooghe. Woodcut printer's device on both titles. Many passages in Greek. BOUND WITH: Kirchmann, J. In funere Pauli Merulae historiarum professoris in Academia Batavorum, & foederatarum provinciarum historiographi, oratio, in qua de vita scriptisque ejus disseritur. Lugd. Batav., ex officina Hackiana, 1672. Woodcut printer's mark on title. 4 ff., 64 pages. Front cover spotted, first blank excised (traces of inscription). Contemporary Dutch vellum Prize Binding, richly gilt, bound in Middelburg by the GLISSEN BINDERY and with the armorial device of the City of Middelburg on both covers and on spine. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION, and the only edition to contain these folding engraved plates by Romeyn de Hooghe. Ad 1: A rich collection of inscriptions and of quotations taken from ancient authors concerning the funeral rites, burial places, etc. of antiquity and especially of the Romans, by Johannes Kirchmann (Lubeck 1575-1643), a philologist, was professor of poetry in Rostock and later rector in Lubeck. "De funeribus Romanorum" is a wide-ranging work on the funeral rites and practices of the ancient Romans, including preservation of the corpse, the mourners and funeral processions, cremations, burials and memorials. Written in four parts, each part is illustrated with an engraved, folding plate by Romeyn de Hooghe: the first plate illustrates the corpse of a noble lady being borne on an elaborately draped litter by a group of soldiers while attendants wave wreaths and flowers; the second plate illustrates the funeral procession through the city with soldiers, attendants and mourners carrying torches and wreaths, horses prancing, mourners wailing, etc; the third plate illustrates the cremation of a body upon a pyre of logs some twenty feet high -in the foreground attendants prepare sacrifices of animals and birds and (it appears) several unfortunate people, possibly slaves; the fourth plate shows offerings of dead animals, wine and fruits being placed before an elaborate memorial be decked with garlands and wreaths. The engraved title page is also of interest, picturing another flaming cremation, this one taking place upon a pyre which is fully five stories high, fitted out with columns and draped with curtains and statuary; at the top a chariot and horses stand ready for the flight to the afterworld (one assumes). Ad 2: The appendix is a charming little treatise published in the same year, written by Nicolai Rigaltio, on the subject of parasites and protecting the corpse from them. The second book, bound in, is a funeral oration, also by Kirchmann, delivered at the funeral of Paulus Mercula, a Leiden professor (1558, Dordrecht - 1607, Rostock). REFERENCES: Landwehr, Romeyn de Hooghe No. 20 (not mentioning the second part (of 24 pp.) by Rigaltius. Rossetti 5898. BINDING: a Dutch Prize Binding from the GLISSEN BINDERY in Middelburg (a.k.a. Middleburgh). We are grateful to Jan Storm van Leeuwan for his identification of the bindery and of the arms of Middelburg. The present binding features van Leeuwen's tools 9a + 9b and roll III. The large panel stamp on the covers represents the arms of the City of Middelburg; this stamp was actually City property. It is reproduced in DDB p. 557 (tool 2) and p. 559 (block F). The Glissen Bindery may have existed for only three or four years (ca. 1790-1793; see DDB IIB, pp. 691-695). For obvious reasons, securely identifiable examples from this Dutch workshop are rare in private ownership.

Contemporary full calf, five raised bands; binding a bit rubbed, some wear to extremities, ex library. Provenance: BARTOLOMEW BEALE (bap. 1656, d. 1709), with his ownership inscription on front flyleaf ("empt: Parisiis 19 Junii 1683") ; and Tho. Beale (bookplate); Springfield, City Library Association (bookplate, perforated stamps and marks on title and other places. Small perforation to title-leaf. 24 large woodcut engravings 6 fine folding engraved plates after Christopher Coriolani. LACKING the additional engraved title [xii]; 387; [41]pp. 1 vols. 4to. Exercise and Health -- Medical Gymnastics. An important edition of the first illustrated book on gymnastics, as well as the first to deal at all with the medical aspects of gymnastics, games, and exercise, including wrestling, boxing, swimming, dancing, weight-lifting, discus throwing, etc. Mercurialis was professor of medicine at the University of Padua and a prolific writer on a wide variety of medical subjects. But his chief fame rests on this work, with its beautiful and striking woodcuts by Christoforo Coriolano, an Italian woodcutter from Nuremberg who was employed in Italy, first used in the second edition of 1573., printed by Giunta. For this edition, the original Giunta blocks were transferred to Amsterdam, and Andreas Frisius in his introduction first identifies the artist as Cristoforo Coriolano, stating that the originals were so beautiful that even those ignorant of Latin bought the book for its illustrations First published in 1569, it is "one of the earliest books to discuss the therapeutic value of gymnastics and sports generally for the cure of disease and disability, and an important study of gymnastics in the ancient world" (Garrison-Morton 1986); the second edition of 1573 was the first illustrated book on gymnastics, containing woodcuts by Cristoforo Coriolano after Pirro Ligorio, which also appear here. However, Brunet calls this revised and enlarged edition the first valuable one, in terms of both contents and rarity, and the matchless quality of the large woodcuts.
