        Erneuerte Hauß- und Feld-Apotheck, oder Stadt- und Land-Artzney-Buch, .Frankfurt am Main, Martin Hallervord; Königsberg, printed by Johann Andreae, 1674. With engraved illustrated title-page.With: (2) SCHRÖDER, Johan (and others?). [Pharmacological recipes in manuscript].[Westfalen?, ca. 1674]. A manuscript pharmacopoeia in German, written in dark brown ink on paper, in a Latin hand with gothic influences. 2 works in 1 volume. Narrow 8vo (18 x 9.5 cm). Contemporary vellum.

      - Ad 1: VD17 23:242182F (3 copies); Waller 3622; cf. Krivatsy 4870 & 4871. Very rare second edition, extensively revised, of a practical "home and field apothecary", bound with an extensive manuscript pharmacopoeia containing hundreds of medicinal recipes. The manuscript is in several hands, but one appears to match Johan Schröder's 1674 owner's inscription in the Gogler, which notes that he is a surgeon, so he is probably at least in part the author/compiler. We do not know whether the author is related to Johann Schroeder (1600-1664), born in Westfalen, author of Phamacopoeia medico-chymica sive thesarus pharmacologicus (Ulm, 1641). Little is known about Carl de Gogler. His book is arranged in nine chapters, each devoted to a different subject, plus an appendix on bloodletting. The subjects include various parts of the body (1-4, 8), women and children (5), kinds of ailments (6-7) and kinds of medicine (9). The first edition, in folio format, was extensively revised for the present second edition and the illustrated engraved title-page added.With Schröders owner's inscription on the back of the engraved title-page. The Gogler lacks leaf L5 (pp. 169 & 170). With leaf 2[pi]1 of the manuscript detached, minor marginal damage to the printed title-page repaired and occasional minor stains, but otherwise in good condition. The binding is rubbed and dirty, with some cracks in the backstrip. A remarkable primary source for medicinal practices among the common people of Westfalen ca. 1674.

He was one of the foremost intelligencers of Europe of the seventeenth century, with a network of correspondents to rival those of Fabri de Peiresc, Marin Mersenne and Ismaël Boulliau. At the foundation of the Royal Society he took on the task of foreign correspondence, as the first Secretary. Born in Bremen, Germany, he trained in theology and received his degree on 2 November 1639. His movements during the 1640s are unclear, but he is thought to have worked as a tutor in England for much of the decade. In 1648 he left England and travelled, returning in the end to Bremen. He went to London in 1653, as a diplomat and settled in England of the Interregnum. He forged a strong relationship with his lifelong patron Robert Boyle, and was tutor to Boyle's nephew Richard Jones. Oldenburg married his second wife, Dora Katherina Dury (165477), the daughter of John Dury. Either through John Milton, whom he met early in his mission, or through Lady Ranelagh, sister to Boyle and the mother of Richard Jones, Oldenburg gained entry to an important intellectual circle, including Samuel Hartlib, whose extensive web of correspondents Oldenburg was to take over, John Dury who became his father-in-law, and others such as William Petty. Among Oldenburg's correspondents at this time was Baruch Spinoza, who he was introduced to on a trip to the Netherlands, and to whom he presented a volume of writings on scientific topics by Boyle. After the Restoration he became an early member (original fellow) of the Royal Society (founded in 1660), and served as its first secretary along with John Wilkins, maintaining an extensive network of scientific contacts through Europe. He also became the founding editor of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. Oldenburg began the practice of sending submitted manuscripts to experts who could judge their quality before publication. This was the beginning of both the modern scientific journal and the practice of peer review. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society continues today and is the longest running scientific journal in the world. He was briefly imprisoned in the Tower as a suspected spy in 1667, during the Second Anglo-Dutch War. Oldenburg's correspondence was linked to support from the politician Sir Joseph Williamson in part Oldenburg supplied Williamson with intelligence information. Oldenburg enjoyed good health in his lifetime, but he fell seriously ill on 3 September 1677, and he died two days thereafter at his Pall Mall, London home. He was interred on 7 September at St Mary the Virgin, Bexley. His widow died ten days later. (Wikipedia)

Aujourd'hui Borgonuovo est un pauvre hameau, mais dans ce chateau, au XVII siècle, on frappait monnaie, et on avait une belle imprimerie, dirigée d'abord par Barthélemy Cotta, et ensuite par Antoine Scionico, l'un et l'autre "stampatori camerali" de ces feudataires. Le nom du premier se lit sur le beau volume des Statuts de la Religion de Malte, imprimé de 1674 à 1676 par ordre de Paul Raphael Spinola, seigneur absolu de ce fief et comte de Ronco. Jusqu'au siècle suivant, on a imprimé à Borgonuovo des livres à l'usage des chevaliers de Jérusalem". Solo il primo frontesp. restaur. per manc. al marg. bianco infer.; ultime 12 carte con uniforme arross., altrim. fresco esemplare molto ben conservato.

        [trans.: Collection of Edo Cuisine]

      Many woodcut illus. in the text. Six volumes bound in two. 8vo, orig. wrappers (outer wrappers quite rubbed), remains of printed title label on upper cover of Vol. I (again, quite rubbed), new stitching. N.p.: Suzuki, 1674. First edition of one of the earliest cookbooks in Japan written for chefs working for fiefdom lords; it introduced Edo's cuisine to the rest of the country. The first fish market in Tokyo opened in 1625 and the number of fish recipes in this book is very large. The first printed Japanese cookery book - Ryori monogatari - was published in 1643. The arrangement of our work is seasonal and the anonymous author describes each season's foods, always stressing the preparations should be pleasing to the eye. The author describes balanced menus; for instance, if you serve two soups, one should be salty and the other should have the taste of miso. It is one of the first to consider kaiseki cuisine for samurai and aristocrats. This encyclopedic book is richly illustrated with woodcuts showing the various widths vegetables should be cut; ceremonial preparations; how to cut up poultry, fish, and vegetables with very detailed instructions on the many ways daikon radish can be sliced; tofu preparations; terrines of fish; etc. Hundreds of recipes are provided, including 43 detailed descriptions of such dishes as clear soup with sea bream or clear soup with whitebait. Internally, a fine copy.

        Ling-t'ai I-hsiang t'u or Hsin-chih I-hsiang t'u [trans.: A Newly Made Collection of Astronomical Instruments]

      106 double-page woodcuts (the first opening is the Chinese Preface, the remaining 105 openings are woodcut illus. within frames, the images each measuring ca. 315 x 320 mm.), printed on thin white Chinese paper. Two vols. Small folio (395 x 199 mm.), orig. golden-yellow silk over paper wrappers (spines perished & with a little fraying), woodcut Chinese title labels on upper covers as issued. [Beijing: presented to the Emperor 6 March 1674]. First edition, printed by the Jesuits in Beijing, of this magnificent woodcut book depicting the observatory and scientific instruments designed by the Jesuits for the emperor of China. This is a very rare book ; our copy was prepared for the Chinese market, probably for the use of the emperor and the functionaries at the observatory. "Very soon after his first visit to Peking in 1601, Matteo Ricci, S.J. (1552-1610), the 'founding father' of the Jesuit Mission in China, was well aware of the Emperor's fondness for European clocks and other instruments such as harpsichords etc., and the former presented an opportunity to enter the Court. Shortly thereafter, he would understand that European astronomy and mathematics were unbeatable challengers of contemporary Chinese science - for several centuries in a state of decline - in calculating a correct calendar and reliable eclipse predictions, both very important guarantors of social and dynastic stability and continuity. Apart from this, the mechanical sciences would also became a first class vehicle to penetrate the highly sophisticated circles of mandarins and courtiers, whose curiosity about European things never seen and about new astonishing techniques struggled with their loyalty to their own uncontested traditions, with highly varying individual attitudes as a result. By all this European science appeared to be an appropriate vehicle to approach the Chinese upper class, and, implicitly, to introduce Christianity in China."-Golvers, Ferdinand Verbiest, S.J. (1623-1688) and the Chinese Heaven, p. 15. In 1629 the Jesuits succeeded in establishing an academy for western mathematical sciences in Beijing. The newly established Ch'ing Dynasty nominated Adam Schall von Bell in 1644 as acting director of the ancient Imperial Board of Astronomy, which had the sole authority to calculate and promulgate the yearly Chinese calendar. As a result, Schall and his fellow Jesuits acquired considerable prestige in the highest levels of Chinese society and government. The newly arrived Verbiest (1623-88), became Schall's assistant in 1660. With Schall's death in 1666, Verbiest was the only westerner commanding the astronomical knowledge needed at the Chinese Observatory; he was appointed director in 1669. The Emperor K'ang Hsi was a young and intellectually curious ruler who was fascinated by European science and technology. Verbiest was elevated to Mandarin rank and often accompanied the emperor on his travels around the country. Verbiest designed and built a series of instruments for observation, including a quadrant, six feet in radius; an azimuth compass, six feet in diameter; a sextant, eight feet in radius; a celestial globe, six feet in diameter; and two armillary spheres, zodiacal and equinoctial, each six feet in diameter. These were all very large, made from brass, and mounted on highly decorated stands contrived in the form of lions, dragons, flaming pearls, and other oriental motifs. The technology is entirely European while the decorative features are very Chinese. The inspiration and model for this book was clearly Tycho Brahe's Astronomiae Instauratae Mechanica of 1598. In the present work, the woodcuts display not only the instruments themselves, but show in great detail the processes of their manufacture, with the tools and implements used to produce them; the alignment and adjustment of their flat and curved surfaces; details of the gearing and screws used to adjust and direct the instruments; the civil engineering machinery and processes used in building the instrument mountings and the great observatory tower itself. Other woodcuts depict navigational instruments such as the compass and cross-staff, and their use; astronomical principles; and mechanical powers, such as those of the inclined plane, lever, screw, pulley, winches, etc. This work is one of the greatest masterpieces of Sino-European printing. The woodcuts are undoubtedly done by Chinese artists working after Verbiest's drawings, or after his directions. Fine set preserved in a rather luxurious box. There was another issue prepared for export with an additional woodcut opening with the title in Latin, the Liber Organicus Astronomiae Europaeae. ? Chapman, Allan, "Tycho Brahe in China: the Jesuit Mission in Peking and the Iconography of European Instrument-making Processes: in Annals of Science, Vol. 41 (1984), pp. 417-43-(gving a detailed technical exposition of the illustrations in this work). Cordier, Sinica, 1451. Golvers, Ferdinand Verbiest, S.J. (1623-1688) and the Chinese Heaven, no. LO 12 in his census. Sommervogel VIII, 575.

        Macbeth, a Tragedy: With all the Alterations, Amendments, Additions, and New Songs. As it is now Acted at the Duke's Theatre.

      "Double double, toyl and trouble; Fire burn, and Cauldron bubble." THE SECOND QUARTO EDITION AND THE FIRST DAVENANT EDITION . 1 vol., 17 cm x 21.7 cm, (ii)66pp., small minor paper repair to extreme lower corner of A2 & D2. Bound in contemporary full paneled calf, expertly rebacked, pastedowns and endpapers renewed, internally clean and bright, a nice un-washed copy in for the most part a contemporary binding. Wing S-2930. Macbeth first appeared in the 1623 collected First Folio of Shakespeare, but was not published separately until the first quarto edition of 1673. Exceedingly rare the census locates only 3 or 4 copies in private hands. By 1673 Davenant's version was enjoying theatrical success in London and in response to this the first quarto edition of the play was issued, which included three additional witches' songs from Davenant's production. In 1674 the first full edition of Davenant's text appeared and both Philip Chetwin and A. Clark published quarto editions. Both of these printings include revised versions of several speeches, two new scenes which were entirely Davenant's own creation, and the three witches' songs. Even so, compared to other early editors, Davenant was relatively faithful to Shakespeare's text. This Chetwin edition is often thought to precede the Clark edition issued the same year by a matter of weeks or months, making the present copy the first Davenant edition and the second quarto edition overall. Both 1674 editions, and indeed all Restoration quartos of Macbeth, are extraordinarily rare. Pforzheimer did not own anything earlier than the 1687 Davenant reprint, and only a handful of 17th-century printings have appeared on the market in 25 years.

        Reiss-Beschreibung in unterschiedliche Theile der Welt, nemlich in Türcken, Egypten, Palestina, Persien, Ost-Indien und andere weit entlegene Landschaften. Geneva, Johann Herman Widerhold, 1674.

      1674. Folio. 4 vols. bound as 1. [20], 218, [12], [2 blank]; [4], 236, [12]; [4], 244, [13], [1 blank]; [6], 231, [17] pp. First title-page printed in red and black, each title-page with Widerholds's woodcut device (motto: "Gradatim ad sidera tollor"). With 31 engraved plates (1 folding), including frontispiece and portraits of the author and his wife, by Jean Jacques Thourneyser. Further with woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, factotums and several small woodcuts in the text. Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine-title, blue sprinkled edges. First edition in German of Pietro della Valle's deservedly famous narrative of his travels in the Middle East, with an excellent account of Muscat and the Arabian Gulf and references to Dibba. Della Valle, an Italian nobleman, sailed from Venice in 1614 to Istanbul, where he arrived in August 1614, spending a year to explore the city. He continued to Rhodes, Alexandria, Rosetta, Cairo, crossing the Sinai desert to Jerusalem, Damascus and Aleppo. From there Della Valle proceeded to Isfahan (Iran) to meet the Safavid ruler Shah Abbas I. He sojourned in Persia until early 1623, witnessing and commenting on the escalating conflict between Shah Abbas and the Portuguese empire. In 1621 he decided to return to Europe and set off for the Persian Gulf, but the Persian and English blockade prevented his sailing. By way of India he finally sailed for Muscat in January 1623, from which he crossed the Arabian Gulf to Basra, continuing overland to Aleppo, arriving in Europe in 1626. During his travels he wrote regularly to his learned friend in Naples, Mario Schipano. These 54 letters formed the basis of an account of his travels that was first published in Rome as Viaggi di Pietro della Valle from 1650 to 1658. "Della Valle displayed excellent narrative and descriptive skills, powers of acute observation, and a genuinely scholarly breadth of learning. He refused to comment on what he had not witnessed himself or checked against the best authorities [...] Della Valle's eighteen letters from Persia provide one of the most detailed sources of information for most aspects of Persian life in the second half of Shah Abbas' reign" (Gurney). - Engraved armorial bookplate on paste-down. Evenly browned throughout, some spotting, few quires in volume 3 with wormholes in gutter margin, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. VD 17, 39:135561Q. Tobler, p. 95. Cf. Atabey 1269-1271 (other eds.); Blackmer 1712 (French ed.); Gurney, "Della Valle, Pietro", in: Encyclopaedia Iranica (online ed.).

        Hebdomas observationum de rebus Sinicis [...]. Berlin, Georg Schultz, 1674.

      1674. 4to. 4 parts in 1 volume. (8), 47, (1) pp. (38) pp. 63, (1) pp. 18 pp. With 2 title pages, the first and dedication on its verso printed in red and black, 1 botanical woodcut in text, woodcut headpiece, tailpiece and decorated initials, woodcut Chinese characters, decorations built up from cast fleurons. With diamond-head music notes, long passages in Syriac and Arabic type. (Bound with) II: Müller, Andreas. Monumenti Sinici [...]. Berlin, Christoph Runge, 1672. Including: [drop-title:] De monumento Sinico commentarius novensilis. - [drop-title:] Caput Primum. Historia lapidis. - [Berlin, Georg Schultz?, 1674?]. Marbled boards (ca. 1800?). A series of works apparently printed and published together (even though the second title-page gives a different publisher and date) on various aspects of China and its culture, by the gifted orientalist Andreas Müller (1630-1694). The title-page of part 1 lists seven numbered subjects for its brief observations: history, missionaries in China from the time of the Old Testament to the time of publication, Chinese emperors and other rulers, ginseng and its medicinal uses, astronomy and the calendar, geography and the relation between the names of the planets and the days of the week. Part 2 is devoted primarily to the transliteration in italic type of an extensive Chinese inscription, using special diacritical marks to indicate the tones and representing them also with Western musical notation above the text. It was a 781 "Nestorian" (East Christian) inscription that had been discovered in the 1620s and first published by Athanasius Kircher in 1667. Müller took issue with Kircher's publications on the inscription. It is followed by several shorter texts, including two pages with parallel columns giving an Aramaic text (the language of the Nestorians) in Syriac script with a Latin translation, and a phonetic rendering of the Chinese Lord's Prayer. Parts 3 and 4 contain additional commentaries on the same Nestorian inscription. - Although the title-page to part 2 is dated "1672" and names the "officina Rungiana" as publisher, all four parts appear to be printed on the same paper stock and they share at least some typographic materials. At least the supplements (which have no date or imprint) seem likely to have been printed by Schultz with part 1, and part 2 may have been as well. - The extensive use of Syriac and Arabic type gives the publication special typographic interest, and it also gives a nice showing of Reinier Voskens's two largest italic types (the largest in the 6-page dedication), only about a decade after he cut them. Copies with all four parts complete are extremely rare, VD17 recording at most one. - Somewhat browned, but otherwise in good condition, with only some tiny marginal worm holes (affecting 1 letter in the imprint of the second title-page). Parts 2 and 4 each lacks a final blank leaf. A remarkable example of early oriental studies. BLC German (17th cent.) M-1471. Cordier (Sinica) 773f. (parts 2-4 only). Löwendahl 155, 161-163. Walravens, China illustrata 88 (part 1 only).

        La Recherche de la Vérité. Où l'on traitte de la Nature de l'Esprit de l'homme, et de l'usage qu'il en doit faire pour éviter l'erreur dans les Sciences.

      A Paris, chez André Pralard, 1674. - in-12. 21ff. 420pp. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque restaurée). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage fondamental pour l'Histoire des Idées de Nicolas de Malebranche (1638-1715). Entré dans la Congrégation de l'Oratoire en 1660, il fut pris de passion pour la philosophie à la découverte du "Traité de L'Homme" de Descartes en 1664. Il publia dix ans plus tard la Recherche dans le but de montrer les relations entre la philosophie cartésienne et la religion. Ce livre, qui eut dès sa première parution un large succès, fut le point de départ d'une série considérable de publications. Il souleva de violentes polémiques, notamment avec Arnauld et Bossuet, ce qui amena Malebranche à poursuivre sa publication en augmentant progressivement, jusqu'en 1712, les trois premiers livres de cette première édition de 1674. L'ouvrage fut mis à l'Index en 1709. "Mais ce n'est pas la faute d'un mauvais hasard si cette somme fort clairement apologétique fut mise à l'Index dès 1709 et servit au XVIIIe siècle de référence aux Déistes. En favorisant la recherche de vérités purement humaines, en identifiant Raison et Verbe divin, entendement divin et principe général de toutes choses, création divine et lois physiques mécanistes, Malebranche facilitait en effet bien malgré lui la naissance du Grand Horloger" (En Français dans le Texte). Ex-libris manuscrit sur la page de titre: "Jean-Baptiste prêtre aumonier de l'Hospice de Thiers 1819". Rousseurs et mouillures, diverses traces de manipulation. En Français dans le Texte, 111.
