        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. Contemporary limp vellum with handwritten title to spine. Binding with a bit of soiling, but overall nice and tight. Internally some browspotting and dampstaining, but overall a fine copy. One page with pen-markings in the margin. Completely unrestored. (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).

        A Description of the Island of Jamaica; with the Other Isles and Territories in America, to which the English are Related

      T. Milbourne, London 1672 - [8],192pp. Three engraved folding maps. (Small neatly closed tear to largest map). Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked, spine gilt, leather label. Rare early work on Jamaica and the other American and British Caribbean colonies, published by British mapmaker and bookseller Richard Blome. Blome added to the sparse knowledge of the times, fully describing the products, resources, and natives of British America. To do this he relied heavily on the notes of then Governor of Jamaica Thomas Lynch and the summaries of explorations described in Lederer's Discoveries (1672). Lederer's is a first-hand account of the explorations through Virginia, the Carolinas, and other American possessions, considered the first scientific report on those regions. The three rare folding maps are "A New & Exact Mapp of y. Isle of Jamaica" engraved by Wenceslas Hollar, who had worked on Blome's great atlas of 1670; "A Generall Mapp of Carolina, Describing Its Sea, Coast and Rivers," derived from the famous Horne map of 1666; and "A Draught of the Sea Coast and Rivers, of Virginia, Maryland, and New England," with an inset of Newfoundland. Three issues are indicated by ESTC, each with minor variations in the imprint; fewer than ten copes located in ESTC. ESTC R7437; Wing B3208B; Sabin 5966; Cox II, 206; Cumming 69; Baer, Maryland 71.

        A Brief Historical discourse of the Origin and Growth of Heraldry, Demonstrating upon what rational Foundations, that Noble and Heroick Science is established.

      London Printed by E. Tyler and R. Holt and ar to be sold Tho. Passinger. 1672 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. Small 8vo, 164 x 104 mms., pp. [viii], 143 [144 blank], later (probably 20th century) full calf, paper label on spine, new end-papers; small pink stain on title-page but a very good copy. Thomas Philipot (d. 1782) was the elder son of John Philipot (c. 1589 - 1645), the Somerset Herald. Thomas inherited part of the large collection of heraldic material that his father had accumulated at his death, and it is possible, even likely, that this is partly if not entirely the work of his father. Thomas published under his own name in 1659 his father's treatise, Villare Cantianum, or, Kent Surveyed and Illustrated. A reviewer in volume 62 of The Gentleman's Magazine (1792) said of the work that "It seems one of those foolish books which attempts to discover the Art of Heraldry in all the symbols and hieorglyphicks of the antient nations"; later, Lowdnes described it as a "pedantic little work."

        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.

        NEW-ENGLANDS RARITIES DISCOVERED: IN BIRDS, BEASTS, FISHES, SERPENTS, AND PLANTS OF THAT COUNTRY

      London. 1672.. [4],114,[3]pp. Eleven in-text woodcuts, some full-page. Lacks the folding plate woodcut of "Hollow leav'd Lavender." 16mo. Contemporary speckled calf. Hinges almost imperceptibly repaired. Occasional light tanning, but generally quite clean. A near fine copy. In a brown half morocco and cloth box. One of the first extensive descriptions of the natural history of New England, containing the first woodcuts of native plants of the area to appear. Josselyn came to New England in 1638, for a year, visiting again from 1663 to 1671. After his second return he published this account of the animals and plants of the country, as well as herbal remedies. The work is divided into six parts: birds, beasts, fish, serpents and insects, plants (the longest section), and minerals. Included are descriptions of the black bear, beaver, the rattlesnake, the sperm whale, the turkey, and much more. The section on plants discusses scores of specimens and relates their curative powers. The final four pages of the regular text contain a description of an Indian squaw, as well as a poem about her. The final fourteen pages, often lacking, are "A Chronological table of the most remarkable passages, in that part of America, known to us by the name New- England." This traces the history of New England from the voyages of Cabot, but is mostly devoted to New England from the founding of Plymouth. The folding plate of the lavender plant is often lacking, and is not present here. A foundation work of early American natural history. CHURCH 618. JCB (3)III:241. MEISEL III:333. SABIN 36674.

Unlike Descartes, Willis believed that man has two souls, an immortal and uniquely human rational soul, and a mortal animal soul shared by all members of the animal kingdom. In his discussion of the sensitive soul Willis recapitulated the neurological concepts he had introduced in Cerebri anatome, particularly localization, and extended them to invertebrates with some of the first detailed dissections made of the oyster, earthworm and lobster. He attributed a wide range of diseases to neurological disturbances, among them headache, lethargy, melancholy, apoplexy, frenzy and paralysis, but recognized the difference between the symptoms of organic brain disease from those of mental illness, which he attributed to disordered animal spirits. He gave what is probably the first account of general paralysis of the insane (Part II, ch. 9), as well as the first description of schizophrenia (Part I, ch. 8), and described the auditory phenomenon now known as "paracusis of Willis" in his chapter on hearing (Part I, ch. 14). "Willis's ideas of cerebral localization were the impetus for a line of experimental work traceable into the early nineteenth century. His notion of the corporeal soul in the nervous system, and the disorders to which it was prone, was both a contribution to comparative psychology and the beginnings of modern concepts of neurology. His speculations on the involuntary functions of the 'intercostal' and 'vagal' nerves provided the foundation of our knowledge of the autonomic nervous system" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).Wing lists two quarto and two octavo "editions," each with a different imprint. The two quarto "editions" are actually issues, as they consist of identical sheets bound with different title-leaves (Oxford and London imprints). The quarto issues have traditionally been considered prior to the octavo versions. Clarke & O'Malley, pp. 472-474. Garrison-Morton 1544; 4793; 4966. Hall, Physiology I, pp. 321-325.

He was one of the most distinguished Dutch physicians, a correspondent of Descartes and Harvey, who was one of the first to promote Harvey&#39;s ideas on the circulation, both in his own work and through the publication of letters to him from Descartes, signalling the first support for Harvey from a major Continental figure. Harvey&#39;s illustrations of the circulation appear in the Wercken, as do figures from Beverwyck&#39;s relative Vesalius, and Beverwyck&#39;s famous response to Montaigne&#39;s attack on the medical profession. </p><p>The first part of the Wercken, Der schat der gesontheyt, is included in Praz, Studies of 17th century imagery (1964) 270 for its beautiful, large text illustrations (wine, tobacco, exotic peoples).

Amsterdam: J. Janssonium a Waesberge, 1672. First edition, and a really fine and handsome copy, of one of the great classics of science. This is the nicest copy of this book I have seen for many years. This book is notable for its importance in the fields of electricity and air pressure and for its account of the discovery of the vacuum pump. Guericke describes here his electrical machine by which he generated the first visible and audible electric discharges (illustrated here). "This remarkable work on experimental philosophy ranks next to Gilbert&#39;s in the number and importance of the electrical discoveries described. Electric conduction and repulsion, the discharging power of points, the dissipation of charge by flames, the light due to electrification, the crepitating noises of small sparks are all recognized."­Wheeler Gift Cat. 170. Also described is his famous air-pump with which he created a vacuum, something (or nothing) which had been sought since antiquity. This air-pump became fundamentally important for the study of the physical properties of gases. Guericke was able to demonstrate here that air had weight and determined its density. The applications in meteorology were enormous. Guericke was also a devoted Copernican and this book contains his important astronomical investigations.

        Experimenta Nova

      Johanned Jansson Waesberge, Amsterdam 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).

(10),198;132 (=232);188,(11) pp.* First edition.- The book by Filippus Baelde (1632-1672) is divided into three parts: the first is a description of coastal India, the second treats Ceylon, and the third is a discussion of Indian religion. In the first two parts he describes the towns, their trade, the surrounding countryside, and the people, and he devotes a large amount of space and much detail to the rise of Portuguese power in the various parts of India and to the later Dutch conquest of many of those places. In part two, for example, he uses about 150 pages to tell the story of the Portuguese conquest of Ceylon, Portuguese relations with the king of Kandy, Dutch negotiations with Kandy beginning with Spilbergen's visit in 1602, the Dutch conquest of Portuguese Ceylon, the VOC's continued difficulties with Kandy, the problems of governing Ceylon, and the attempts to reform the church there. Baldaeus' description of Hindu religion in part three depends heavily on Abraham Roger's work but also contains new information gained from his own observations' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III, p.494). The fine plates and illustrations, in excellent impressions, represent the cities of Surat, Cochin, Tuticorin, Negapatam, Masulipatam, Galle, Negombo, etc., natives, costums, ceremonies, churches, fighting scenes, fortifications, elephant-hunt, etc. - A most important printed source for the establishment of Dutch power in Ceylon and south India. - A very fine copy.Tiele 70; Cat.

        Réflexions ou sentences et maximes morales, 1672, une des premières éditions

      Pierre Compagnon et Robert Tallandier 1672 Si l?ouvrage de La Rochefoucauld est l??uvre d?un esprit très pénétrant qui paraît systématiquement occupé à une considération exclusive des aspects négatifs de la nature humaine, qui lui ont valu la qualification de philosophe de l?amour - propre, c?est que le pessimisme dont il est imprégné doit beaucoup à la doctrine de Port - Royal qui a marqué la littérature de l?époque classique. La dénonciation de la vanité humaine, la réfutation du libre - arbitre, la mise à nu de la faiblesse de l?être et des feintes dont il use vis - à - vis de lui - même, ou la peinture de son insignifiance, doivent être pris comme autant de témoignages de cet esprit janséniste qui traverse les Maximes. Les Réflexions ou sentences et maximes morales, communément connues sous le nom de Maximes, sont un ouvrage de La Rochefoucauld dont la première édition remonte à 1665 par Barbin. Le livre comptait trois cent seize maximes numérotées, plus une Réflexion sur la mort ne portant pas de numéro. L?édition de 1672 que je vends a le même contenu et a été à publié par Pierre Compagnon et Robert Tallandier . Reliure plein cuir d? époque avec un dos à cinq nerfs , intérieur en bon état, format in 16, 100 pages.

Le texte de Virgile est révisé par l&#146;érudit batave Nicolas Heinsius (1620-1681), précédé d&#146;une notice biographique et illustré de 101 gravures anonymes pleine page auxquelles il faut ajouter la page de titre gravée. On doit ce minutieux travail d&#146;édition à l&#146;imprimeur et libraire de Leyde, Franciscus Hackius, de la famille des Elzevier. C&#146;est en particulier pour illustrer le chant VI de l&#146;Enéide que l&#146;on trouve l&#146;iconographie ésotérique la plus curieuse, proche du symbolisme occulte des livres d&#146;emblèmes. Léger manque de cuir à la coiffe, quelques reports « fantômes » des gravures sur le texte, bon état général. ~~~~ ENGLISH ~~~~ The text of Virgil is revised by the Batavian scholar Nicolas Heinsius (1620-1681), preceded by a biographical note and illustrated with 101 anonymous full-page engravings and an engraved title page. We owe this meticulous work of edition to the printer and bookseller in Leiden, Franciscus Hackius, member to the Elsevier&#146;s family. The illustrations of the song VI of the Aeneid particularly offer the most curious esoteric iconography, near the occult symbolism of the emblem books. Slight lack of leather on head, a few "ghost" prints of engravings on facing text, good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Experimenta nova Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio [New Magdeburg Experiments Concerning Empty Space]. Amsterdam: Johannes Jansson Waesberge. 1672

      1672 FIRST EDITION AND IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY of &#39;one of the greatest books in the history of experimental physics&#39; (Jenkins, Sparkmuseum). In this volume, Guericke "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. [He] also describes the invention of the first electrical machine, which generated the first visible and audible electric charges" (Honeyman). Gifted (with inscription) from the German physicist Woldemar Voigt to the Dutch physicist Hendrik Lorentz, this copy is in near fine condition in every way save for its lack of an engraved portrait. (See provenance above). Experimenta nova describes and beautifully illustrates Guericke&#39;s personal and detailed report on his establishment of the physics of vacuums. Questioning Descartes&#39;s assertion that a vacuum could not exist, Guericke began in 1850 with the construction of "the first air pump, which he [then] 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 [the Magdeburg experiment] 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" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists).In 1663, Guericke built the first electrical friction machine by rotating a sulfur globe against a cloth, describing it here for the first time. As earlier noted, Guericke additionally describes and illustrates the earliest electric generating machine, one of his own making, with which he "generates the first visible and audible electric discharges" (Honeyman). "This remarkable work on experimental philosophy ranks next to Gilbert&#39;s in the number and importance of the electrical discoveries described" (Wheeler 170). CONDITION & DETAILS: Amsterdam: Johannes Jansson Waesberge. Folio (313 × 196 mm). [4], xvi, [244pp.], 4 [index], 1 [errata], 5. Illustration: Engraved title, extra engraved title, 2 double-page engraved folding plates (including that of the Magdeburg experiment), 7 full-page plates (with plate XVIII repeated) and 24 large engravings 9 of which are full page (and some of which are inclusive of a number of figures appear in text). Lacking only engraved portrait. Includes Index rerum and the often absent errata leaf. Provenance: Bears the following inscription on front end paper: "Herren Prof. Dr. Lorentz in in dankbarer Verehrung W. Voigt" ("Prof. Dr. Lorentz in grateful adoration W. Voigt"). Voigt and Lorentz corresponded regularly beginning in 1883, with their personal and scientific friendship deepening when they met for the first time in Gottingen in 1897. Lorentz&#39;s published correspondence makes evident that he and Voigt frequently exchanged letters. Note too that "The Lorentz Transformation, considered essential to the Theory of Special Relativity, was invented by Voigt in 1887, adopted by Lorentz in 1904, and baptized by Poincare in 1906. Einstein probably picked it up from Voigt directly" (Engelhardt, On the Origin of the Lorentz Transformation). Handsomely bound in full mottled calf with 6 raised bands at the spine, gilt-tooled compartments, and a red morocco, gilt-lettered spine label. Tight, solid, and clean. Very slight and light water stain at corner of title and to the following 20 pages. Occasional light spot here and there, all light and minor. Save for missing portrait, near fine condition.

Tardieu after Charles Coypel, engraved vignette on title-page by C. Simeneau after N. Vleughels and 100 engraved illustrations to the fables by and after Claude Gillot, Charles Antoine Coypel, Jean Ranc, Bernard Picart, Jean Baptiste Massé, etc. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Cioranescu 36530; Cohen-De Ricci, p. 594 ("Très belle édition, rare et recherchée"); Fabula Docet 94; Fürstenberg 74; Lewine 289; Populus, Gillot Cat, 31-98; Sander 1095. 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.

        Recit de ce qu'il y a de plus considerable aux affaires des eglises reformées des vallées de Piedmont, depuis les massacres de l'année 1655. [Amsterdam, Abraham Wolfgang(?), after 1663]. 4to in 2s. Contemporary wrappers.

      Bibliografia Valdese 1672; STCN (1 copy); Tiele, Pamfletten 5035; WorldCat (3 copies); not in Knuttel. Rare copy of this pamphlet on the massacre of the Waldensians in Piedmont in 1655. It is probably a second edition as the title-pages mentions: "Jouxte la copie impriméé à Haerlem 1663", though no copies from this previous Haarlem edition are known. The Waldensians are a Christian movement with its origins in the later Middle Ages in France and they were persecuted as heretics from the 12th century onwards. From the early 17th century they were considered as early forerunners of the Reformation. In 1655 the Duke of Savoy commanded the Waldensians of Piedmont to attend Mass or leave in 20 days. The remaining Waldensians were massacred, causing indignation throughout Europe.Some waterstains in the upper margins; wrappers with slightly rubbed edges and spine restored with cello tape. Otherwise a good copy of this rare pamphlet on the Piedmont massacre.

        Verhael Van den wonderlijken Oproer , Voorgevallen in de Province van Malanbruino, gelegen een graed bezuiden het Eyland Pines: ende hoe de zelve is gestilt

      N.d.: n.p., 1672. Square octavo, 8 pp., paper browned, but very good; bound in modern boards with red spine, bookplate, ink title on front and spine. A degree south of the Isle of Pines. A rare and important seventeenth-century Dutch work about the imaginary land of "Mallanbruino" which, it is claimed, lies just to the south of Henry Neville&#39;s famous Isle of Pines. The title of this intriguing work literally translates as "Story of the remarkable turmoil, which occurred in the province of Mallanbruino, which lays a degree south of the Island of Pines, and how it was suppressed". The significant detail is that in Neville&#39;s story the small but fertile Isle of Pines is famously &#39;near to the Coast of Terra Australis, Incognita&#39;, suggesting that the author of this Dutch story set his story not only in the same region, but perhaps even on the fabled mainland itself: Mallanbruino thus becomes a little-known, and all but unregarded example of seventeenth-century Dutch Australiana. Neville&#39;s work was first published in 1668 and appeared in Dutch translation soon thereafter. The Isle of Pines was a sensation, not least because of its licentious depiction of the hero of the tale, George Pine, sleeping with all four of the women with whom he was stranded. This short piece capitalised on its success, and takes the form of a dialogue in which a bored Dutch soldier on guard duty named Gijsbert tells his colleagues of the two years he spent in the imaginary province, and of the ideal society he found there. His friends are initially sceptical, but as he sketches in more and more detail they become quite taken with the land he describes, and how it is protected from the neighbouring lands with the novel (and very Dutch) expedient of being able to be temporarily flooded. Only rarely offered on the market, this work forms a minor but interesting link in the long history of seventeenth-century Dutch exploration of the west Australian coast.
