(PEPYS, Samuel.)
[London:] Navy Office, 20 November, 1672. Folio, folded once to form a bifolium (299 × 190 mm), one page, address panel on verso (noted as delivered "past one att clock half an houor in the afternoon"), written in a secretarial hand, signed in holograph by Sir Thomas Allin, Sir Jeremiah Smith (or Smyth), Samuel Pepys, and one other. Further docketing in another but early hand: "To fill Mr Maddocks &c: how the Duke has explained this since I rec[eive]d the letter". Wormhole through both pages, not touching letters but affecting remains of wax seal. Some trivial spots and rust-marks, overall very good. This letter dates from the end of the first summer campaign in the Third Anglo-Dutch War when the fleet had to be paid off. The document informs Osborne that Pepys and the other members of the Navy Board had attended a meeting with Charles II that morning to discuss "the Paym[en]t of the Wages of Men turn'd over from the Shipps discharg'd; his Royall Highnesse wth the assent of the Lord Clifford (then present) does direct, that Wee shall not insist in either of the Cases mentioned in the said Letter, upon the personall appearance of the Parties, therein Ordered to bee paid; but that Wee shall proceed to ye payment of theyr said Wages to their Attorneys, upon Due proofe made of their being such." The other signatories were Sir Thomas Allin (bap. 1612, d. 1685), comptroller of the navy from 15 April 1671, his services being honoured with a baronetcy on 7 February 1673; and Sir Jeremiah Smith (or Smyth), who succeeded Sir William Penn as comptroller of the victualling acc … [Click Below for Full Description]

GENGA, BERNARDINO. - [THE FOUNDATION OF SURGICAL ANATOMY]
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."

BLOME, Richard (1635-1705)
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.

IMPERATO, F.
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 vas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Josselyn, John:
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.

Some dampstaining & a little foxing but a very good copy. Amsterdam: Schipper, 1672. First issued in 1651, Beverwyck's works were re-issued periodically to about 1680. He was one of the most distinguished Dutch physicians, a correspondent of Descartes and Harvey, who was one of the first to promote Harvey'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's illustrations of the circulation appear in the Wercken, as do figures from Beverwyck's relative Vesalius, and Beverwyck's famous response to Montaigne's attack on the medical profession. 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). Illustrations in the other parts include a camera obscura, and fine large scenes of medical practice. Hirsch. Wellcome 11 159. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Guericke, Otto Von
Amsterdam: Johanned Jansson Waesberge, 1672. 1st Edition. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
