D. Thierry, Paris 1672 - 416 pages. Three blank front endpapers and one blank rear endpaper, apparently as issued. Map folds out to 22 x 27 cm / 8.6 x 10.6 inches with closed tears and moderate soiling. Preliminary pages to first page, as well as rear endpaper are grubby, very faint water stain to lower right corner of a few pages; else a clean and unmarked interior. One cm of vellum along fore-edge of rear cover chipped off 60 % from bottom, but binding is sturdy and hinges sound. Page edges rouged but now faded.

The complete work in 1672 had six volumes in three tomes Voyage de Turqui qui comprend la terre Sainte et L'Egypte followed in 1676. The title page inclusion of d'Angleterre, de Danemark et de Suède refers to the second part of Tome 3. t\The final page is misnumbered 404. An early classic of travel writing, published a mere 25 years after the Thirty Years War. General background, followed by town by town presentations, with six pages of currency information and 34 pages of petit dialogue with German and Polish phrases and their French equivalent at rear.

TROILI, Guido
Bologna: gli H. H. del Peri, 1672. First edition and much scarcer than the second edition of 1683. "Troili, a pupil of the quadratura painter Michelangelo Colonna, became scene painter for the Farnese theater at Parma. Ferdinando Bibiena saw his work there (probably after the artist's death) and absorbed its influence. This original edition of Troili's exceptionally handsome book on perspective is one of the real milestones in the history of theatrical scenery: it describes the conscious use of visual deception, the creation of greater �depth' by means of oblique positioning of the wings, as common practice twenty years before Pozzo" (Breman in Architectural Theory and Practice III-B-24).The third section treats shadows and fortifications. "Libro molto letto e stimato" (Schlosser-Magnino, p. 620). * Riccardi II.561; Cicognara 866 (mention of 1683 second ed.); Fowler, p. 277-278; J. Baltrusaitis, Anamorfosi, pp. 19, 21 and 23; Piantanida, Autori Italiani Del �600, 4424.

Die DNB nennt für Goddens Erwiderung noch eine vorausgegangene Ausgabe von 1671, die allerdings nirgends nachgewiesen werden konnte und deren Existenz zweifelhaft ist; als Vorlage für die Ann Arbor-Mikroverfilmung ("Early English books") wurde die vorliegende Ausgabe (Cambridger Exemplar) herangezogen. - Titel mit Spuren von 2 unschön geschwärzten Stempeln, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten.

CHARLETON, Walter
1672. CHARLETON, Walter. DE SCORBUTO LIBER SINGULARIS. Autore Gualtero Charleton, M.D. [...] Londini: Typis E. Tyler & R. Holt, prostant apud Guliel. Wells & Rob. Scot ..., 1672. First edition. Octavo. Old calf boards, worn and rubbed, sympathetically rebacked in matching calf. Nineteenth-century armorial bookplate of Edward Shipperdson. Charleton (1619-1707) was a fellow of the College of Physicians, eventually served as president of the Royal College (1689-1691), and was one of the first elected fellows of the Royal Society in 1662. Although Charleton was a brilliant individual and an active investigator, he continued to believe in many of the classical concepts of disease, and this treatment on the causes and treatment of scurvy is written in this vein. His medical books are hard reading, and contain no new observations of his own, but they show the transition from the old scholastic way of writing on medicine to the new method of stating observations and drawing conclusions from them. (D.N.B.; D.S.B. 3, pp. 208-210; Heirs to Hippocrates 527: Leiden 1672, 2nd ed.; Waller 1918; Wellcome II, p. 329; Wing C3669).

Corbet, Richard
London: 1672: J.C. for William Crook. 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 Correcte … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wien, o. Dr, 1672. Titelkupfer, (4), 46 Bll. Mit Holzschnittvignette nach dem Sachindex, zahlreichen figuralen Initialen in Holzschnitt sowie 32 Kupfertafeln, in Platte fortlaufend numeriert. Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband. 4to. Zweite Ausgabe des außergewöhnlich populären Werkes, das erstmals 1620 in Antwerpen (unter dem Titel 'Viae vitae aeternae') erschienen war und allein bis 1630 sieben Auflagen erlebte. Für die christliche Ikonographie des 17. Jh.s war das Werk grundlegend. Brunet schreibt darüber, "die Frommen suchen das Buch wegen seiner Texte, die Neugierigen wegen der 32 Stiche, die es zieren." - Das Titelkupfer der vorliegenden Ausgabe ist signiert vom Wiener Kupferstecher Johann Martin Lerch, der wohl auch die anderen Illustrationen verantwortlich zeichnet. Jeder der (nicht mitpaginierten) Kupfertafeln ist eine ausführliche Erklärung anhand der eingestochenen Bezeichnungen gegenübergestellt. - Mit hs. Besitzvermerk des Joachim Hübner (datiert 1682) am Titel. Schönes, breitrandiges und weitgehend sauberes Exemplar. - Praz, Studies in 17th century image, 506. Vgl. Brunet V, 577.

Denis Jean-Baptiste
Paris: Frederic Leonard, 1672. First Edition. Hardcover (rebound in cloth). Very Good. 12 memoires and 10 conferences paginated consecutively, 276pp. The copy described in Brunet (596/7) has 12 and 14 conferences, some published in 1674 (here the title page date is 1672 but 1673 at the rear colophon), other copies encountered - likely printed later - continue with a few more conferences. 8 full page plates one repeated (of a child, fully formed, found in an egg 6 weeks after conception) in Memoires 4 and 5, and a number of in text illustrations including one of a mer-man. Trimmed close to title headings on top edge, but no loss to text. Scattered stains including one large, circular brown stain (2" across at its largest) in the gutter of the last quarter of the book - no text is obscured, though, and the book is largely clean otherwise. Denis was the physician to Louis XIV and the first person to perform a blood transfusion (from a lamb to a man). This remarkable record of scientific discovery, covering snakes, speaking trumpets, heart anatomy (including a remarkable plate), and most of the serious science of the time (both on the continent and trickling in from The Royal Society in London) as well as a sampling of the more fanciful reports, is quite scarce. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 276 pages. Previous owner's signature to title page. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Bologna : gli H. H. del Peri , 1672. First edition and much scarcer than the second edition of 1683. "Troili, a pupil of the quadratura painter Michelangelo Colonna, became scene painter for the Farnese theater at Parma. Ferdinando Bibiena saw his work there (probably after the artist's death) and absorbed its influence. This original edition of Troili's exceptionally handsome book on perspective is one of the real milestones in the history of theatrical scenery: it describes the conscious use of visual deception, the creation of greater �depth' by means of oblique positioning of the wings, as common practice twenty years before Pozzo" (Breman in Architectural Theory and Practice III-B-24).The third section treats shadows and fortifications. "Libro molto letto e stimato" (Schlosser-Magnino, p. 620). * Riccardi II.561; Cicognara 866 (mention of 1683 second ed.); Fowler, p. 277-278; J.

BROWNE, Thomas
London: J.R. for Nath. Ekins, 1672. With engraved portrait of author opposite title page by F.H. Van Houe. Half-leather and marbled boards; first 6 leaves loose, otherwise, interior good with numerous contemporary annotations. Sixth edition, the last to be corrected and enlarged by the author. Browne's work is divided into seven books which contain his numerous observations and experiments in physics, comparative anatomy and biology. It "contains an extraordinary amount of learning and research dispelling many superstitious beliefs. To modern readers his Vulgar errors, as it was amusingly referred to, represents an inexhaustible store of entertainment. The attainment of scientific truth was not for Browne the sole object; it is in the discussion itself that he delights, and the more marvelous a fable is, the more sedulously he applies himself to the investigation of its truth" (DNB). Despite this, Browne (1605-82) was not above credulous faith: he believed in astrology, alchemy, witchcraft, and magic. The work has become a literary classic and includes the first appearance in English of the term "electricity." Also included is the seventh edition of Religio medici (A doctor's religion). One of the most famous and influential treatises in the English language, it represents Browne's attempt to arrive at a vital concept of faith, one with tolerance, humour and dignity.

DOWNING, Sir George
London: John, Luttone, 1672. London: John, Luttone,, 1672. Scarce second, much augmented edition (first 1664) of this early tract on New York. Downing, an English diplomat, was accused by the Dutch of instigating the 1663-67 war between the two nations, as a result of which the British gained control over New Amsterdam. In 1664 Downing wrote a letter designed to clear his name, and published it as a 21-page pamphlet; the present edition reprints the original letter, and, as a simple glance at the collation of the present edition suggests, adds much new material, including how the Dutch suffered tribulations at the hands of the local Indians (pp. 16-19, etc.). The author of this tract was a nephew of Governor Winthrop and the second graduate of Harvard College. He returned to England soon after graduation, and in 1657 was appointed ambassador to The Hague by Cromwell. "Colbert, the famous French minister, characterized him as 'le plus grand querelleur des diplomats de son temps.' To him is attributed the Navigation Act to which England owed so much of her naval power, and no one was more instrumental than he in bringing New Netherland under the English Dominion" (Cole).The augmented edition of the work was shared between two publishers, Dorman Newman and John Luttone, and at least 3 variant imprints appeared the same year.
