FIORAVANTI LEONARDO.
Per il Brigna,, Venetia, 1673. Cm. 15,5, pp. (16) 592. Bel marchio tipografico al frontespizio. Solida legatura coeva in piena pergamena semirigida, dorso a piccoli nervi con titoli manoscritti. Esemplare genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nitida e corretta edizione di questo classico apparso in originale nel 1570 per opera di Leonardo Fioravanti, medico bolognese. Quest'ultimo espone le sue simpatie paracelsiane e presenta una lunga serie di rimedi medici, segreti chimici e ricette alchemiche spesso in opposizione alla più classica tradizione ippocratico-galenica. L'insieme di questa interessante raccolta di precetti proviene dalla lunga esperienza di studio e pure quella maturata grazie ai viaggi "per mare, et per terra, vedendo i secreti della natural filosofia, et le differenze che sono tra una regione, et l'altra, medicando così nell'una come nell'altra professione.".

WICQUEFORT, Abraham de; ROMEYN DE HOOGHE
1673. WICQUEFORT, Abraham de and Romeyn de HOOGHE. Advis Fidelle aux veritables Hollandois, touchant ce qui s'est passé dans les villages de Bodegrave et Swammerdam, et las cruautés inouies, que les Francois y ont exercées. [2], 202 pp. Illustrated with 8 folding etched plates (the last two plates with 2 scenes each) by Romeyn de Hooghe. 4to., 225 x 185 mm, bound in contemporary Dutch speckled vellum over boards, spine gilt, preseverd in a green half morocco folding box. [The Hague: Steucker Brothers], 1673.First Edition of this tour-de-force of Baroque book illustration, and one of the most powerful graphic works by Romeyn de Hooghe. The acclaimed narrative focus of de Hooghe's engravings reach their zenith in the plates of the Advis Fidelle. Philip Hofer placed these engravings on an equal plane with the greatest anti-war designs, comparable to Callot's Grandes Misères de la Guerre and Goya's Desastres de la Guerra. "One of the few and too-little known masterpieces of the period" (Fürstenberg, quoted in 'The Book Collector,' 1960, p. 432). In 1667 the French King Louis XIV invaded the Dutch Republic and advanced as far as the province of Utrecht. De Hooghe was vehemently opposed to this flagrant French expansionism, which resulted in the death of hundreds of his fellow countrymen. When cruelties committed by the French mercenary troops against the civilian population of Flanders and Holland became known, de Hooghe decided to expose the French atrocities in eight powerful designs he provided for the text written by Abraham de Wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bartoli widmete sich vor allem der Reproduktion von Werken der antiken Kunst und kann als Hauptvertreter der archäologischen Richtung des römischen Kupferstichs angesehen werden. Er fertigte zahlreiche Zeichnungen nach der Antike an, die gestochen und zu Büchern zusammengefasst wurden, deren Text häufig von dem Antiquar Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1693) verfasst wurde. Er publizierte Werke etwa zu antiken Reliefs (Trajanssäule, Marc-Aurel-Säule, zur römischen Malerei, die er in einer Art Corpus vorlegen wollte, zu antiken Gräbern, zu Porträts, Gemmen und Lampen.

S. l. [Germany]. Copper engraving and letterpress (slightly age-toned, soft folds, tiny tears in margins and in the fold) 41 x 32 cm (16.1 x 12.6 inches). A rare broadside in German language showcases supernatural phenomena in Moscow, Hungary and Germany in 1673. - This extremely rare and intriguing illustrated broadside showcases the supposed appearance of diverse and bizarre natural phenomena in the sky, variously above Moscow, Hungary and Germany in the year 1673. Each incident of natural phenomena depicted is accompanied by explanatory lines of verse below. Prior to the Age of the Enlightenment, natural phenomena were popularly interpreted to be divinely-ordained signs, or premonitions, of future events. These phenomena included the sighting of comets, meteor showers, the Northern Lights, eclipses, the apparition of weird shapes or lights in the sky, or the occurrence of unusual storms, et cetera. In the era before scientific explanations were either available or accepted by the masses, people were left to rationalise these extraordinary events, often carried away by imagination or religious fervour. Usually, but not always, natural phenomena were interpreted as portents of grave calamities, such as war, plague or famine, brought about by a vengeful God intent upon punishing sinful societies. Just as sensationally negative new stories fascinate today’s public, generating intense media coverage, natural phenomena in former times captivated the people, resulting in a rich corpus of sermons, periodical articles, pamphlets, books and broadsides (such as the present work).

BLASIUS, Gerardus (BLAES, Gerard Leendertszoon).
Amsterdam: Caspar Commelin, 1673. First edition. First edition, rare, and a superb copy bound in contemporary red morocco, of this important work of human and comparative anatomy by the Dutch physician, chemist, and anatomist Gerard Blaes. The first 167 pages are devoted to human anatomy, followed by the description of the anatomy of various animals. "In the 1673 volume Blasius describes the anatomy of the following fourteen types: tortoise, duck, pigeon, ox, sheep, pig, dog, cat, civet-cat, fox, rat, hare and monkey ... Blasius' observations on human anatomy are followed by eight-five pages [168-252] devoted to the anatomy of the dog [illustrated with 12 plates]. This is the first comprehensive and original treatise on a vertebrate since the publication of Ruini's volume on the horse in 1598. His reason for writing it was that owing to the difficulty of obtaining human bodies for dissection substitutes had to be found, of which the dog was one. It was hence imperative to acquire an exact knowledge of the points in which the dog resembled and differed from man. His approach to the dog, therefore, is not as a comparative but as a human anatomist" (Cole, A History of Comparative Anatomy (1949), pp. 150 & 154-5). The Miscellanea end with 15 pages of practical notes on rare cases observed during human dissections. ABPC/RBH record only the present copy. OCLC lists ten copies in US. A flavour of Blasius' treatment of animal anatomy can be gathered from his account of the tortoise. "The heart of the tortoise, he says, consists of but two chambers - an auricle and a ventricle ...

At this crossroad, she met the Pietist, Jean de Labadie, a former Jesuit who had converted to Protestantism and then founded a contemplative religious sect known as Labadism. Anna Maria was fascinated by Labadie and his ideas and she completely abandoned her former life and joined his religious community. Nine years later, she published this autobiography, taking her title from Luke 10:42 where Martha's sister, Mary, "chooses the better part" by sitting at Christ's feet rather than helping out in the kitchen.The autobiography encompassed the whole of her life up to that point, providing an excellent window into contemporary attitudes and practices (most especially in relation to women) along with a clear exposition of the religious ferment that so permeated Dutch society throughout that time. Anna Marie's late conversion to Labadism did, of course, color much of her presentation but the book is, as noted by her biographer Una Birch, characterized by "a sincere effort after self-portrayal, and of which the pages were only written after prolonged self-examination and … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARTHOLIN, Thomas; [STENO, Nicolaus, et al.]
Peter Haubold 1673-1680, Copenhagen. Rare complete run of one of the first medical journals. While Garrison lists 3 previous journals, 2 of these were published for 1 issue only (‘Medical and scientific periodicals of the 17th and 18th centuries,’ in Bull. Inst. Hist. Med., Johns Hopkins II, 285-243). Only the Giornale dei letterati (Parma, 1668-88) predates this.Among the many significant contributions, including more than 100 by Bartholin himself, are the last published scientific works of Niels Stensen. Stensen returned from Italy to Denmark in 1672 to accept an appointment at the University of Copenhagen under Bartholin. During his stay he carried out a number of experiments, two of which are published in vol. I: Embryo monstro as finis Parisiis dissectus (pp.200-3) and Uterus Leporis Proprius, foetum resolventis (pp.203-7). During his stay in Italy, however, Stensen converted to Catholicism and found himself the target of attack from orthodox Protestants. He beame more interested in theological debates that scientific research and in 1674 he returned to Florence and in 1685 took Holy Orders."The Copenhagen biologists, under the quickening influence of Thomas Bartholin, produced five volumes of transactions known as the Acta Medica et Philosophica Hafniensia, which is now very rare and almost entirely forgotten." (Cole). The leading authors besides Thomas Bartholin and Niels Steensen (Steno) were Holger Jacobsen (Jacabaeus), Caspar Bartholin, Ole Borch (Borrichius), Ole Worm, Simon Paulli, JohanRodhe, Caspar Kolichen and several others.--"In the case of many of their ob … [Click Below for Full Description]

This dramatic map is Seutter's version of Allard's map, Totius Neobelgii Nova et Accuratissima Tabula. It includes a faithful rendition of the famous Restitutio View of Manhattan which originally commemorated the Dutch short-lived recapture of New Amsterdam in 1673. The view depicts the town as seen directly from the east. On the right is a wall that eventually became Wall Street with its guardhouse and gate. Adjacent to the wall are new settlements and the Collect Pond (P), used to collect fresh water. Seutter's version has updated the scene above the view to reflect the British colonization. A long procession of natives carry American goods to the English monarch, presumably George II, who is being attended by Hermes, god of commerce, Athena, goddess of wisdom, and Hera, who is standing over a chest of coins. Shows an elaborate scene depicting natives and gods presenting tribute to the English monarch George II. The course of the Delaware and Hudson are separated, unlike early editions of the map. This is the first map in the series to show the boundaries of Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania with a printed line, as earlier examples had previously left the delineation of the boundaries to the colorist. Philadelphia is shown as a set of houses in relief, rather than a ground plan.

This dramatic map is Seutter's version of Allard's map, Totius Neobelgii Nova et Accuratissima Tabula. It includes a faithful rendition of the famous Restitutio View of Manhattan which originally commemorated the Dutch short-lived recapture of New Amsterdam in 1673. The view depicts the town as seen directly from the east. On the right is a wall that eventually became Wall Street with its guardhouse and gate. Adjacent to the wall are new settlements and the Collect Pond (P), used to collect fresh water. Seutter's version has updated the scene above the view to reflect the British colonization. A long procession of natives carry American goods to the English monarch, presumably George II, who is being attended by Hermes, god of commerce, Athena, goddess of wisdom, and Hera, who is standing over a chest of coins.Shows an elaborate scene depicting natives and gods presenting tribute to the English monarch George II. The course of the Delaware and Hudson are separated, unlike early editions of the map. This is the first map in the series to show the boundaries of Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania with a printed line, as earlier examples had previously left the delineation of the boundaries to the colorist. Philadelphia is shown as a set of houses in relief, rather than a ground plan.The map itself is from the influential Jansson-Visscher series, which formed the basis for the mapping of the Atlantic seaboard and New England for nearly one hundred years.

PLUMIER, Charles
L'Imprimerie Royale, Paris, 1673. First edition, first issue with the incorrect date MDCCXIII on the title page (but the correct date on the colophon). This is a fine copy in an untouched contemporary binding. Plumier was the first 'modern' botanist to describe the flora of the Caribbean at a time when natural history underwent significant qualitative changes as a result of European expansion and transatlantic contacts. He made three separate expeditions to the Caribbean, in 1689, 1693, and 1695. On the first of these he accompanied physician Joseph Surian; on the last two he travelled alone as botaniste du roi. He discovered, drew, and described hundreds of new species, and left behind over 6,000 detailed drawings of West Indian plants. Many of Plumier's generic names were adopted by Linnaeus and are still in use today, among them Fuchsia, Caesalpinia, and Magnolia. The present work, based on his second trip, was his first botanical publication. Included are many plates showing ferns and clematis. "Le Père Plumier, a monk in the order of St. Francesco di Paula, was an important botanical traveller. Tournefort and he became friends and they herborized together throughout the Midi. After that, Plumier's travels included the Antilles and several long voyages to other islands in the West Indies and to America, where he discovered, drew, and described hundreds of new plants, many of which are shown in his own books, though much of his work had to remain unpublished until Boerhaave and Jean Burmann were able to edit part of his papers, and publish them as the Plantarum Americana … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mogrovejo, Toribio Alfonso de (1538-1606) translated by Francis Harold (?-1685)

(Volume fort rare"--LeClerc 1757. European Americana 673/105; Medina BHA 1547; Palau 112325; Sabin 30415) First Latin edition. Toribio Alfonso de Mogrovejo (16 November 1538 – 23 March 1606) was a Spanish prelate of the Catholic Church who served as the Archbishop of Lima from 1579 until his death. He first studied in the humanities and law before serving as a professor and later as the Grand Inquisitor at the behest of King Philip II. His piousness and learning had reached the ears of the king who appointed him to that position which was considered unusual since he had no previous government or judicial experience. His noted work for the Inquisition earned him praise from the king who nominated him for the vacant Lima archdiocese. The pope confirmed this despite his protests. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1578 in Granada (after four consecutive weeks of receiving the minor orders) and Pope Gregory XIII named him on 16 May 1579 as the Archbishop of Lima; he received his episcopal consecration in August 1580 from the Archbishop of Seville Cristóbal Rojas Sandoval. The new archbishop first arrived in Paita on 12 May 1581 which was 600 miles – or 970 kilometers – from Lima. He began his new mission travelling to Lima on foot while he baptized and taught the natives. He was enthroned in his new see a week later. He produced a trilingual catechism in Spanish as well as in the native languages Quechua and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vetancurt, Agustin de
Mexico: Francisco Rodriguez Lupercio, 1673. [6],49[i.e., 50],[8] leaves. Small quarto. 20th-century vellum boards. Titlepage trimmed at lower margin, affecting imprint and border. Slight worming at fore-edge, not affecting text. Contemporary manuscript annotations scattered throughout. Light tanning, occasional foxing and dust soiling. Very good. In a half morocco box. First edition of this rare and highly significant Nahuatl grammar. In the 17th century the study of Nahuatl (commonly called Aztec) reached a pinnacle, springing from the Herculean, fruitful efforts of 16th-century Franciscan scholars and the perspicacious, intuitive understanding of the early 17th-century Jesuit linguist, Father Carochi. Later in the century another major figure was to appear: Agustin de Vetancurt (1633-1700), a distinguished Franciscan scholar and writer, the author of the TEATRO MEXICANO, and vicar of the chapel of San Jose de los Naturales in the Franciscan monastery in Mexico City, in which latter role he perfected his understanding of Nahuatl. This work represents Vetancurt's first expansion and improvement on earlier Nahuatl grammars. The very important grammar is completed by a comprehensive index, a short catechism, and instructions on the commandments and the sacraments of the Catholic Church, all in Nahuatl. The first part of the text expresses Vetancurt's important insight that Nebrija's classical, early 16th-century paradigm for the study of European Languages, specifically Latin and Spanish, had its shortcomings when applied to the major New World language under scrutiny, ev … [Click Below for Full Description]

POULLAIN DE LA BARRE ( François)
Paris Dupuis 1673. page de titre, préface (7ff); 243 pp ; avertissement 3 ff. In-12, maroquin rouge, triple filet doré, dos orné, dentelle intérieure , tranche dorées (Hardy). Premier plat détaché, accroc à la coiffe de tête. "Tout ce qui a été écrit par les hommes sur les femmes doit être suspect, car ils sont à la fois juge et partie." Cette citation de Poullain de la Barre est mise en exergue par Simone de Beauvoir dans Le Deuxième Sexe. "De tous les préjugés, on n'en a pas remarqué de plus propre à ce dessein que celui qu'on a communément sur l'inégalité des deux sexes." Cette seconde citation extraite de "De l’égalité des deux sexes, discours civil et moral, ou l’on voit l’importance de se défaire des préjugés." résume quant à elle parfaitement le propos de l'auteur. Poullain de la Barre, converti au protestantisme, réfute les constructions historiques qui ont fait de la femme une subordonnée. S'inspirant de la conception cartésienne du dualisme entre le corps et l'esprit, il soutient que "l'esprit n'a pas de sexe", pour conclure que "les femmes sont aussi nobles, aussi parfaites et aussi capables que les hommes". D’après lui même les sommets de la hiérarchie ecclésiastique devraient leur être ouverts, ainsi que la société civile mais aussi les domaines scientifiques. Il finira par affirmer la supériorité des femmes car paradoxalement, leur condition a contribué à mûrir leur intelligence et leur moralité. A travers l'oppression féminine, ce sont toutes les autres inégalités et dominations arbitraires qui sont ainsi visées. Ce texte fondateur écrit en 1673 n’eut qu’une … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tasnière su disegno di C. Delfino e da 1 grande ritratto racchiuso in cornice tonda del Tesauro, anch'esso inciso dal Tasnière. Leg. piena bazzana coeva, dorso a nervi con titoli e fregi in oro. Cerniere, cuffie e ampie spellature ai piatti restaurate, ma internamente ottimo esemplare. (3458) Bella edizione piemontese del '600 che raccoglie le risposte polemiche dello storico e letterato piemontese Emanuele Tesauro (1592-1675) ai suoi detrattori, soprattutto il Capriata e il Siri, che avevano polemizzato con la sua opera Campeggiamenti del Piemonte relativamente alla condotta del principe Tommaso di Savoia nelle vicende politico-militari dell'epoca e nelle guerre civili del Piemonte; in particolare il Tesauro risponde alle inesattezze polemiche dei suoi avversari relativamente agli assedi di Torino del 1640 e di Ivrea del 1641. Il Capriata ed il Siri, come è noto, erano nel novero degli storiografi e cronisti prezzolati, pronti a metter la loro penna al servizio del miglior offerente; ed il Tesauro ebbe quindi buon gioco nel rispondere alle loro critiche ostili ed alla loro disinformazione sulle vicende militari specifiche di cui si trattava nei Campeggiamenti. L'opera è divisa in varie sezioni: la prima (La Vergine trionfante, pp. 1-80 e Il Capricorno scornato, pp. 81-201), la più ampia, interessa in gran parte l'astrologia giudiziaria, e soprattutt … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLASIUS, Gerardus (BLAES, Gerard Leendertszoon).
Amsterdam: Caspar Commelin, 1673. First edition, rare, and a superb copy bound in contemporary red morocco, of this important work of human and comparative anatomy by the Dutch physician, chemist, and anatomist Gerard Blaes. The first 167 pages are devoted to human anatomy, followed by the description of the anatomy of various animals. "In the 1673 volume Blasius describes the anatomy of the following fourteen types: tortoise, duck, pigeon, ox, sheep, pig, dog, cat, civet-cat, fox, rat, hare and monkey ... Blasius' observations on human anatomy are followed by eight-five pages [168-252] devoted to the anatomy of the dog [illustrated with 12 plates]. This is the first comprehensive and original treatise on a vertebrate since the publication of Ruini's volume on the horse in 1598. His reason for writing it was that owing to the difficulty of obtaining human bodies for dissection substitutes had to be found, of which the dog was one. It was hence imperative to acquire an exact knowledge of the points in which the dog resembled and differed from man. His approach to the dog, therefore, is not as a comparative but as a human anatomist" (Cole, A History of Comparative Anatomy (1949), pp. 150 & 154-5). The Miscellanea end with 15 pages of practical notes on rare cases observed during human dissections. ABPC/RBH record only the present copy. OCLC lists ten copies in US. A flavour of Blasius' treatment of animal anatomy can be gathered from his account of the tortoise. "The heart of the tortoise, he says, consists of but two chambers - an auricle and a ventricle ...

Happel, Eberhard Werner.
Hamburg, Joh. Naumann und Georg Wolff, 1673. - Seltene erste Ausgabe des Erstlingswerks Happels (1647-1690), wohl von Chr. W. Hagdorns chinesisch-indischem Staatsroman "Aeyquan oder der große Mogul" (Amsterdam 1670) beeinflusst. Der große Erfolg dieses höfischen Liebesromans in exotischem Gewand legte den Grundstein zu einer ganzen Serie ähnlicher Veröffentlichungen mit jeweils anderem Lokalkolorit. Happels "belehrend-anekdotische Schriften fanden ein zahlreiches Publikum im bildungshungrigen Mittelstand und lieferten späteren Dichtergenerationen bis zu Eichendorff ein unerschöpfliches Quellenmaterial" (Dünnhaupt). Der Roman enthält neben Anekdoten viele geographische, naturwissenschaftliche und auch kuriose Abschnitte. – Leicht gebräunt, sonst gutes, breitrandiges Exemplar. Die Tafeln mit Darstellungen des höfischen Lebens, Kampfszenen zu Wasser und zu Lande u. a. wegen Überformats gefaltet. Wappenexlibris von 1695 im vorderen Innendeckel. Sehr selten. Nur zwei weitere, nicht vollständige Exemplare im JAP seit 1950. – VD17 23:284632X; Dünnhaupt 1; Goed. III 257, 1; Faber du Faur 856; Hayn/G. III 83; Seebaß/Kistner NF 457 (defekt).
