(COOKERY)
Three double-page & two single-page woodcuts. 30 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers, new stitching. Tokyo: Matsue Ichirobei, 1672. First edition of one of the earliest Japanese cookbooks, finely illustrated with three double-page and two smaller woodcuts depicting three chefs in ceremonial attire in a kitchen, cutting fowl, carp, and monkfish with sacred knives for a banquet; a wedding banquet with foods displayed; three tables with different dishes on display; and a ceremonial table with autumnal foods shown. This book is the first aesthetically produced Japanese cookbook, focused on ceremonial menus. These menus were carefully constructed to have many deep meanings for the participants. In the double-page woodcut of the kitchen, we see the equipment used, plates, containers carrying fish (including abalone), daikon radishes, trays, etc. The double-page woodcut of a luxurious wedding ceremony shows sake vessels and a number of dishes, all of which have significance (for example, clams have two shells, a good portent for the new couple). The three tables display food for the newlywed couple and their guests, including abalone, clams, duck, shrimp, sea cucumbers, and various vegetables. In the third double-page woodcut, we see kitchen workers preparing for the banquet, with boiling pots, foods placed on trays, and stacks of trays being carried. Some of the ingredients include whale meat, fish roe, duck, various shell fish, octopus, jelly fish, many kinds of vegetables, eggs, dried squid, tofu, pheasant, sashimi (many kinds including trout, yellowtail tuna, carp, and lobster … [Click Below for Full Description]

MASCHERONI, Lorenzo.
First edition of Mascheroni's most important book, in which he proves that any geometrical construction that can be performed using ruler and compasses can be carried out by means of compasses alone. The history of the problem goes back at least as far as Euclid, the restriction to ruler and compass occurring in Book I of the <i>Elements</i>. The problem of carrying out constructions under additional restrictions was considered by da Vinci, Dürer, Cardano and Tartaglia, among others.<br/><br/> "In the preface Mascheroni recounts the genesis of his work. He was moved initially by a desire to make a contribution to elementary geometry. It occurred to him that ruler and compass could perhaps be separated, as water can into two gases; but he was assailed by doubts and fears often attendant upon research. He then chanced to reread an article on the way Graham and Bird [who supplied instruments to Maupertuis] had divided their great astronomical quadrant, and he realised that the division had been made by compass alone, although, to be sure, by trial and error. This encouraged him and he continued his work with two purposes in mind: to give a theoretical solution to the problem of constructions with compasses alone and to offer practical constructions that might be of help in making precision instruments. The second concern is shown in the brief solutions of many specific problems and in a chapter on approximate solutions. <br/><br/> "The theoretical solution (see especially §191) depends on the solution of the following problems: (1) to bisect a given circular arc of given cente … [Click Below for Full Description]

NOSTRADAMUS, Michael
Thomas Ratcliffe and Nathaniel Thompson, London: 1672 - Folio [xxxvi], 522 pp. Title in red and black. Without the frontispiece portrait, missing in about half the copies extant. Contemporary calf, spine gilt with red morocco label; some leaves browned and foxed, otherwise a sound copy with the book label of Stewart of Glassertoun. First edition in English of the book of prophecies of Nostradamus, first printed in French in 1555 under the title Les propheties. It was originally done in three installments, the first containing 353 quatrains, or four-line poems. The second installment, containing 289 further quatrains, was printed in 1557, while the third installment of 300 new quatrains was printed in 1558, but apparently only survives as part of the "works" which was published after his death. Each quatrain is a prediction of future events, which Nostradamus claimed was based upon astrological assessment of the quality of an occurrence such as a birth, death, wedding, etc. Much of the work, especially the more dramatic prophecies, apparently paraphrase the endeavors of earlier writers such as Livy, Plutarch, and other classical historians. Many of his astrological references are taken almost word for word from Richard Roussat’s Livre de l’estat et mutations des temps (1549–1550).One of his major prophetic sources was evidently the Mirabilis Liber of 1522, which contained a range of prophecies by Pseudo-Methodius, the Tiburtine Sibyl, Joachim of Fiore, Savonarola and others.

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.

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."

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]

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, A GEOGRAPHICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE FOUR PARTS OF THE WORLD (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. Fewer than ten copes located in ESTC. ESTC R7437. WING B3208B. SABIN 5966. COX II, 206. CUMMING 69. BAER, MARYLAND 71.

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.

Beverwyck, Jan Van
Schipper, Amsterdam. BEVERWYCK, Jan van (1594-1647). Wercken der genees-konste, bestaende in den schat der gesontheyt, schat der ongesontheyt, heelkonste. . . . 4to. [16), 252; [8), 127, [11; 328, 48; [8], 278, [12]pp. Engraved title & many fine plates in text. 245 x 185 mm. Contemporary Dutch tooled vellum, front hinge cracked. 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]
