      Boo Jonsson, fordom Sweriges rijkes drotset, som uthi konung Albrechts tijd lefde. Visingsborg, Johann Kankel, 1672. 4:o. )( 4,+ A 4-3D4, 3E3. Saknar det sista blanka bladet 3E4. Enstaka småfläckar, lagad reva blad Dd2. Brea fina marginaler. Något nött hfrbd från mitten av 1700-talet, ryggen med upphöjda bind och med svart titeletikett. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris klistrat ovanpå ett äldre. Äldre bläcknoteringar med kommentarer i Boo Jonssons testamente. Collijn sp. 9. Schück III, s. 228ff. Almqvist s. 132 & s. 45ff. Komplett i första sättningen med tillägget "Herr Bo Jonssons drotz i Swerige testamente. Detta böts 1673 ut mot ett nytt tilägg som även innehöll "Trenne konung Albrechts forskriffningar." Hadorph uppfattade dikten som en furstespegel och antog att det var därför Bo Jonsson låtit översätta den och då troligen som ett polemiskt inlägg gentemot Kung Albrekt. Han såg det således som ett svenskt historiskt-politiskt dokument och därav bihanget, som innehåller andra dokument rörande Bo Jonsson och Kung Albrekt. Förlagan till den medeltida översättningen, som endast är känd i en handskrift, är presbytern Leos "Alexandri Magni regis macedonie de preliis", som i sin tur går tillbaka på en okänd alexandrinsk författare, Pseudo-Kallisthenes. Det svenska manuskriptet hittades av Messenius, och återfanns bland hans saker, när de konfiskerades och fördes till riksarkivet vid hans fängslande. Boken trycktes i 550 exemplar, varav 50 på skrivpapper

        Wilh. ten Rhyne Med. Doct. Meditationes in magni Hippocratis textum XXIV. De veteri medicina ... Cum additamento & variis hinc inde laciniis de salium &c. figuris

      Leiden, apud Johannem Schuylenburgh 1672.. 12mo, [24], 387,[29] p., with the blank leaves S5-6, engraved title and a folding plate by the author, contemporary vellum, a fine copy. Hoffmann II, 309. Willem ten Rhyne (1647-1700), a Dutchman, qualified as M.D. at Angers in 1670, published this book, took a post as physician to the Dutch East India Company, and spent most of the rest of his life in Java. While in Japan he met with acupuncture, the first man with a Western medical training to do so. He wrote the first study of it to be printed, and published other pioneering works, on tea, Hottentots and similar subjects. His books are all scarce, this one particularly so: COPAC records BL copy and 3 in Scotland; OCLC 3 in Holland, none in U.S.A. He had of course written it before he went to the East, but it seems likely that this very detailed study of On Ancient Medicine, one of the oldest and most interesting parts of the Hippocratic corpus, with its theories of the balance of humours in the body, seemed relevant in his confrontation with Japanese medicine: the relation between the two appears to be virgin academic territory. Our collation agrees with that of Leiden Univ., except that we have the blank leaves they guess at; the pagination given by Vrije Univ. Amsterdam appears to include these blank pages. 21vf

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.

First edition, in a superb armorial binding, of this scarce commercial almanac; it is an invaluable document giving the names, addresses, and specialties of many dozens of professions in and outside of Paris plus much other detailed information regarding daily life in the city and in the country. The copy contains the supplement of 168 unnumbered pages with further details. We offer just a few of the professions for which the author gives detailed information: architects, armorers, firework makers, gold-beaters, lumber dealers, hosiers, butchers, cork dealers, harness-makers, brewers, embroiderers, brush-makers, belt-makers, candle-makers, pork butchers, carpenters, coppersmiths, nail-makers, rope-makers, cutlery-makers, dancing masters, gilders, drapers, public scriveners, enamelers, sculptors, grocers, fan-makers, clock- and watch-makers, cart- and wagon-makers, midwives, makers of inlaid furniture, printers, booksellers, bookbinders, hoteliers, musical instrument makers, opticians, engravers, dyers, wine merchants, vinegar dealers, etc., etc. The depth of information is wonderful: one learns how much it cost to stay in a wide variety of hotels per month, the surcharge for meals included (with a further surcharge for room service), etc. The finely engraved frontispiece, designed by C.P. Marillier and engraved by J.P. Lebert, depicts the protector and director general of the arts and manufacturers of France, distributing prizes to the most celebrated artists of the time.

Complectens scriptores omnes qui ab Octaviani Augusti imperio usque ad annum M. flouerunt. xl, [8], 410 pp.; 9 p.l., 286, [62] pp. Two vols. in one. Folio, cont. red morocco with nearly identical tooling as above, a.e.g. Rome: A. de Rubeis, 1696. First editions and a fine complete set of this incomparable one-man achievement in the field of national bibliography. "To Spain belongs the credit of having produced what is easily not merely the biggest but the best national bibliography before the eighteenth century. This is the Bibliotheca Hispana of Nicolaus Antonius. The first section of this work appeared in two large folio volumes from the press in Rome of Nicolaus Angelus Tinassius. Extending altogether to 1,360 closely printed pages, it consists of the main text in alphabetical order of authors by Christian names, followed by a succession of appendixes and appendixes to appendixes, bringing the work up to date; a section devoted to women writers; a section in three parts, devoted respectively to foreign writers in Spanish or to writers in the Spanish colonies, to writers closely connected with Spain, and to foreign writers on Spain; an index by surnames; a topographical index; four indexes by ecclesiastical adherence and rank; and finally a subject index based on an interesting classification. The whole work deals with Spanish authors since 1500, in whatever language they wrote, and enumerates about 6,500 such writers. The bibliographical details are remarkably full and accurate, and altogether this work, though it is little known, deserves to hold a high place among the classics of systematic bibliography... "Nicolaus Antonius unfortunately did not live to see the second part of his great work through the press. It was published posthumously in Rome in 1696, in two folio volumes, about half the length of the first two, printed by Antonius de Rubeis. The Bibliotheca Hispana vetus deals in its first volume with Spanish writers from the beginning to the year 1000, in the second volume with those who flourished between 1000 and 1500. To the latter volume is added a 'Bibliotheca Arabico-Hispana', and a subject index to both volumes. Although the interest of these two volumes is naturally mainly literary and historical, they are of considerable value even from a specifically bibliographical point of view."-Besterman, The Beginnings of Systematic Bibliography, pp. 44-45. Fine and handsome set in matching bindings. Bindings with a few minor scuff marks. Occasional light foxing or browning. Complete sets are today rare on the market. Small old Jesuit library stamp on titles. ❧ Grolier Club, Bibliography, 66-"This amazing work is not only the biggest but also the best national bibliography published prior to the eighteenth century...The bibliographical details are remarkably full ; several subject indices are provided. Antonio, who was perhaps the first scholar to devote himself full-time to bibliography, started this work in 1649 and constantly added to it until his death 35 years later." .

        Poems ... The third edition, corrected and enlarged

      Printed: 1672. 1582-1635 Octavo, 5.5 x 3 inches . Third edition. A6, B-G12. Lacking final leaf of adds: G12. This copy is bound in a neat 19th century binding which has been rebacked. Richard Corbet (1582-1635), the son of a gardener, rose to be Bishop of Oxford and of Norwich. Anything but a puritan, Corbet who was known for his witty conversation, spent his youth partying with Ben Jonson and others in London taverns. "His chaplain, Dr. Lushington was a very learned and ingenious man, and they loved one another. The Bishop sometimes would take the key of the wine-cellar, and he and his chaplain would go and lock themselves in and be merry. Then first he lays down his episcopal hat - There lies the Doctor. Then he puts off his gown - There lies the Bishop. Then 'twas, Here's to thee, Corbet, and Here's to thee, Lushington." (Aubrey, Brief Lives). The first edition of Corbet's poems was published in 1647, twelve years after his death under the title of Certain Elegant Poems and contained thirty-six poems. The second, containing only twenty-five poems, was published in 1648 as Poetica Stromata or a Collection of Sundry Pieces in Poetry. This third, containing thirty-six poems, is essentially a reprinting of the first edition but "Although in this Edition there be few new Poems, yet you may finde many of them more perfect than before ; for in some there is six, in others four, and in many two Lines added (out of perfecter Copies), which were left out in the former impressions : Also all other Faults are diligently Examined and Corrected ; so that now you have as perfect as I can get them." - Publisher's advertisement. A Proper New Ballad entitled The Fairies' Farewell Farewell rewards and fairies Good housewives now may say, For now foul sluts in dairies Do fare as well as they; And though they sweep their hearths no less Than maids were wont to doe, Yet who of late for cleanliness, Finds sixpence in her shoe? Corbet was the author of many poems, for the most part of a lively, satirical order, his most serious production being the Fairies' Farewell. His verses were first collected and published in 1647. His conviviality was famous, and many stories are told of his youthful merrymaking in London taverns in company with Ben Jonson, who always remained his close friend, and other dramatists. He died at Norwich on the 28th of July 1635.

Folio (313 × 196 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, spine gilt in compartments with urn and flower centre tool, pineapples in corners, sides ruled in gilt with a double fillet, curl-marbled endpapers, red edges. Housed in a brown flat back cloth solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Extra engraved title, engraved portrait, 2 double-page engraved plates (including that of the famous Magdeburg experiment), 20 large engravings in the text (7 full-page, plate XVIII repeated). Early ownership inscription of Michele Colombo to front free endpaper verso. Minor wear to extremities, portrait slightly browned, small ink stain to fore-edge of sig. D1, very slightly affecting leaves either side but not the text, an excellent copy in a handsome binding. First edition of one of the most remarkable books in the history of physics and technology. Guericke describes and illustrates with handsome engravings his inventions of the air-pump, the earliest electric generating machine, the water-barometer, and the air-balance. Guericke constructed his first air-pump some time before 1654, when he gave his first demonstration at Magdeburg of the ability of the hemispheres with a vacuum inside them to resist two teams of horses working to pull them apart; the experiment is illustrated here in the often reproduced folding plate. The experiment demonstrated that air had weight, and Guericke was further able to determine the density of air. He also proved experimentally the propagation of sound through air and, with his electrical machine, first clearly demonstrated the phenomenon of electrical repulsion. "Copies of this first edition are now very rare. This remarkable work on experimental philosophy ranks next to Gilbert'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, 170).

        WAHRHAFTIGE AUSFURLICHE BESCHREIBUNG DER BERUHMTEN OST-INDISCHEN KUSTEN MALABAR UND COROMANDEL AUS AUCH DER INSEL ZEYLON

      Amsterdam: Johannes Janssonius von Waesberge and Johannes von Someren, 1672.. [6],610,[24]pp. including numerous illustrations in text, plus many full- page and double-page maps and views. Extra engraved allegorical title. Folio. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine. Light spotting. Minor toning. Contemporary ownership markings on extra title and titlepage. Overall internally bright and clean. Very good. One of two 1672 editions, the other also published in Amsterdam, in Dutch. Baldaeus' text is a primary work on southern India and the island of Ceylon. The book is divided into three sections: a general description of the region, a description of Ceylon, and a treatise on Indian gods and goddesses. "The author was a Dutch missionary in the Malabar and Coromandel districts. His narrative gives considerable information on the Dutch settlements in Southern India. He bears witness to the ravages of the dreaded Malabar pirates who still infested the western coasts of India" - Cox, citing Oaten, EARLY TRAVELLERS AND TRAVELS IN INDIA. Lach goes further in his praise of Baldaeus, quoting an 18th-century claim by Valentijn that Baldaeus "had provided 'the most detailed and the best' account of Ceylon.'" The remarkable cartography and views in Baldaeus' work are some of the most detailed produced to date. He offers maps of Goa, Suratte, Cochin, Cananor, Columbo, Jafnapatnam, and more. The views range from illustrations of Malabar pirate cruelty, to quaint local scenes, to fantastical depictions of Indian gods. The fauna of India also plays a central role in the illustrations, with the elephant making the most cameos. In addition, Baldaeus includes two double-page plates of the Malabar language. One of the best early descriptions of India, amply illustrated, here in an attractive contemporary binding. LANDWEHR VOC 557. TIELE 70 (ref). EBERT 1543. COX I, p.283 (another ed).

General letterpress title printed in red and black, two letterpress section titles in black. Engraved additional title, 37 engraved portraits, plates, plans and maps (including 1 portrait of the author inserted from a smaller copy, 2 single page engravings, 34 double-page), 1 engraved armorial headpiece, 55 engraved illustrations (most half-page, but including 1 full-page and 9 three-quarter page illustrations, and the three plates of scripts. Contemporary Dutch speckled sheep, covers panelled in gilt with large central blocked lozenge-shaped arabesque, skilfully rebacked. First edition of what is an early primary source-work on southern India and Sri Lanka: Baldaeus' "narrative gives considerable information on the Dutch settlements in Southern India"(Cox), besides providing "most detailed and the best account of Ceylon" (Lach) This beautifully-illlustrated work, containing much first-hand eye-witness material, is divided into three parts: the first offers a general description of the region; the second a description of Ceylon, and the third a treatise on Indian deities. It was written by Baldaeus, a Dutch missionary after his return from Sri Lanka in 1666. "Philip Baldaeus left the Netherlands ... in October 1654 bound for Batavia, and arrived in July of the following year. Immediately after the capture of Colombo by the Dutch from the Portuguese, Baldaeus and several of his countrymen were posted to Ceylon ... As chaplain to the troops, he accompanied General Rycklloff van Goens in the campaign against the Portuguese in 1658. the Dutch captured several cities, including Jaffna and Mannar in Ceylon, besides Tuticorin and Negapatam in south India. About four years later, Baldaeus took part in another military campaign under van Goens (who had meanwhile been appointed Governor of Ceylon), and the remaining Portuguese possessions in India including Quilon, Cochin and Cranganore, also fell to the Dutch... Besides the view and plan of Goa, the illustrations include Masulipatam, Cochin, Cannanore, Surat, Ahmadabad, and Diu. Baldaeus also includes two views of 'The English Fort of Bombay', depicting the former Portuguese Quinta from the landside and 'towards ye water side'. Although some engravings, perhaps certain cities in India such as Surat, may have been derived from earlier sources, those depicting churches in Ceylon, for example, were probably from his own drawings or those of an associate in the country" (Indian Life and Landscape by Western Artists pp.13-14).

      Amsterdam.: Johannes Janssonius van Waasberg and Johnannes van Someren.. First and Complete Edition.. 1672.. [A True and Exact Description of the Most Celebrated East India Coasts of Malabar and Choromandel. As also the Great Island of Ceylon and the Religion of the Heathens of the East Indies]. 3 title pages, striking full page engraved half title, engraved colophon at the end of each section, 17 double page engravings, 51 text engravings (including dedication leaf), 14 double page maps and plans, 4 other engravings, 3 double page leaves of language (one of which is folding), [8], 610, [12] (last blank) pp. frontispiece, portrait of the author, contemporary calf, gilt spine in seven compartments, expertly rebacked. Neat repairs at the foot of 2 double page illustrations, some light occasional browning, small closed tear lower margin one leaf, map of Ceylon and three language leaves cropped without any significant loss. The engravings in this copy are particularly fine crisp dark impressions. An exceptionally good copy. Rare. This important work on the northern part of Ceylon and Southern India was written by the Dutch cleric Phillipus Baldaeus. Baldaeus accompanied Ryckloff van Goens's expedition against the Portuguese possessions in South India and Northern Ceylon in 1658 as chaplain to the troops. Baldaeus's eye-witness account of this expedition against Tuticorn, Mannar, Jaffna and Negapatam is included here. After the expedition was complete, Baldaeus returned to Ceylon in the second half of 1658 serving as a missionary for the Dutch Reform Church for seven years in the area around Jaffna. This work is divided sections describing Southern India, Ceylon and the religious beliefs of the Indians. Generously illustrated with very handsome engravings, maps and plans throughout this is a particularly attractive copy as the images and maps are all particularly good clear strikes. A keenly observed graphic account of the Tamil world of northern Ceylon and Southern India in the second half of the 17th century. Shortly after this Dutch edition a German edition was published. Unfortunately, although the new preface to the German edition states that it was "carefully translated" from the Dutch this was not the case. The translation is not very accurate due chiefly to the translator's ignorance of the local words used. This is particularly significant as the English edition by Churchill was in turn based on the German edition. As Churchill did not refer back to the original Dutch the errors were perpetuated. The German and Dutch editions were not reprinted in full again however the work proved popular in England and was reprinted three times after the first English edition of 1703 as a volume in Churchill's voyages. Baldaeus's writing was then neglected for a period of over 200 years and a complete edition of the Ceylonese section of this work was not published until the middle of the 20th century. A very handsome copy of the first edition of this significant work. .

It was based by Blaeu upon a map made by Joris Carolus, a Dutch traveler who probably drew his map in the 1620s. Carolus based his rendering on Iceland Bishop Gudbrandur Thorlaksson's map drawn originally in the late sixteenth century. Carolus updated his map and it remained the standard map of Iceland for much of the seventeenth century. Versions were issued by several publishers and this example, by Blaeu, is probably the most desirable of them all

        De anima brutorum

      Richard Davis Oxford: Richard Davis, 1672. No Dust Jacket. Foundation Work of Neurology Willis, Thomas (1621-75). De anima brutorum quae hominis vitalis ac sensitiva est, exercitationes duae. 4to. [58, including imprimatur leaf, errata leaf and longitudinal title label], 16, 33-565 [i.e., 563], [11, index]pp. Lacking the 5-page catalogue of books of Richard Davis at the end, as often. 8 engraved plates. Oxford: E Theatro Sheldoniano; impensis Ric. Davis, 1672. 203 x 153 mm. Calf ca. 1672, rebacked and corners repaired, front free endpaper renewed. Fine, crisp copy. First Edition, Oxford Issue of one of the foundation works of neurology. Willis's anatomical and clinical study On the soul of brutes is based upon the matured version of his theory of the soul, a refutation of Cartesian theory. 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.
