        Discorsi accademici ? Alla S.C.R. maestà dell'imperatrice Eleonora.In Verona, per Gio. Battista Merlo, (1674).

      In Verona, per Gio. Battista Merlo (1674) - Cm. 25, pp. (56) 730 + 1 c.b. Con una bella antiporta incisa in rame fuori testo; capilettera ornati, bei finalini e numerose testatine xilografiche. Graziosa legatura novecentesca in mezza pergamena con titoli manoscritti al dorso e ampie punte; carta marmorizzata ai piatti. Alone all'occhietto e in modo trascurabile al margine interno delle prime e ultime carte. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato, ancora in barbe e stampato su carta forte. Giovanni Pindemonte, marchese veronese vissuto nel XVII secolo, fu giureconsulto e criminalista. Diede alle stampe, oltre a questi Discorsi, solo tre opere: "Panegirico della cicala di Anacreonte" (1673), "Orationi criminali e panegiriche" (1679) e "Oratione di Giovanni Pindemonte giuresconsulto" (1643). Quest'opera, l'ultima pubblicata dell'Autore veronese, è divisa in diciotto discorsi. Dall'indice: "Che si possano generare, come rane, uomini dalla terra", "Che sia habitata la luna", "Che la luna non sia habitata", "Dell'essenza dell'amore", "Della lingua, e Ortografia Toscana". Molto interessanti i numerosi capitoli di taglio astronomico-cosmografico dedicati alla possibilità che la luna possa essere o meno abitata.

        ARTICULI PACIS & AMICITIAE, INTER...CAROLUM II...ET CELSOS AC PRAEPOTENTES DOMINOS ORDINES GENERALES FOEDERATARUM BELGII PROVINCIARUM...

      London, 1674. [2],12pp. Small quarto. Modern three quarter calf and cloth, spine gilt. About fine. The First British printing of the Treaty of Westminster, ending the Third Dutch War. The Dutch, beset by enemies on all sides, were forced to make trading concessions throughout the world, and to again surrender New York, which they had retaken. This is the final passage of New York into British hands. The treaty effectively eliminated the Dutch threat to British colonization of the mid-Atlantic states, and meant that in the future the French would be the main challenger to British hegemony in North America. The fifth article provides for the removal of British settlers from Surinam. This is the official Latin text, apparently preceding an English- language printing of the treaty and is quite scarce, with EUROPEAN AMERICANA locating only four copies. DAVENPORT 69.

        Il Pentamerone overo Lo Cunto de li Cunte trattenimento de li Peccerille

      BASILE Giovan Battista. Il Pentamerone overo Lo Cunto de li Cunte trattenimento de li Peccerille. In Napoli, ad istanza di Antonio Bulifon libraro all'Insegna della Sirena, 1674. In 16mo; pp.12n.nn., 633, 3n.nn. Pergamena coeva, titolo calligrafato al dorso. Ex libris. Rara e celebre raccolta di fiabe in dialetto napoletano, la più antica opera di racconti fiabeschi e tradizioni popolari della storia europea. In questa edizione compare per la prima volta il titolo "Pentamerone". Lo Cunto de li Cunte ebbe grande influenza in tutta Europa su scrittori come C. Brentano, i fratelli Grimm, Perrault, Carlo Gozzi, Wieland. Dall'introduzione di Benedetto Croce all'edizione del 1891: "Il Cunto de li Cunti è un libro di fiabe. E le fiabe, non occorre quasi il dirlo, sono racconti popolari tradizionali di avventure, alle quali pigliano parte esseri umani, ed esseri sovraumani od estraumani della mitologia popolare, come fate, orchi, animali parlanti, ecc. Questo complesso di racconti tradizionali, la cui origine è incerta e discussa e risale senza dubbio a una remota antichità, viene ora considerato dalla moderna filologia come un gruppo di documenti importanti per la storia del genere umano e per la psicologia popolare. Ma, per molti secoli, essi non furono se non un oggetto di diletto e di trattenimento pel popolo ingenuo e pei fanciulli, che avidamente li ascoltavano: lo scienziato disdegnava d'appressarvisi, e solo, di rado, vi si appressò l'artista. E uno dei primi artisti, anzi il primo, che vi si appressasse, fu appunto il nostro Giambattista Basile... Nel 1674 l'editore Antonio Bulifon, un francese stabilito a Napoli, «vedendo, com'egli stesso dice, che veniva sommamente desiderato questo, altrettanto arguto quanto giocoso, Pentamerone del vivace e bizzarro ingegno del Cavalier Giovan Battista Basile», fece sì che, «ridotto alla vera lettione, per mezzo delle stampe ei rinascesse». Chi lo ridusse alla «vera lettione» fu un abate pugliese, Pompeo Sarnelli, poi vescovo di Bisceglie, appassionato cultore del dialetto napoletano, che allora serviva, a quanto sembra, da correttore nella stamperia del Bulifon. Il Cunto de li Cunti fu, in quest'edizione, intitolato, per la prima volta, sul frontespizio: Il Pentamerone: titolo più breve, che ricorda illustri precedenti, e che perciò prevalse. Ed, anche sul frontespizio, è detto «co tutte le zeremonie corrietto»; e, certo, il Sarnelli vi spese intorno molte cure". Le cinquanta fiabe delle cinque giornate sono tutte collegate tra loro, e racchiuse in una cornice generale, che ravvicina questo libro di fiabe ai più classici libri italiani di novelle, ai Decameron, alle Cene, ai Diporti, alle Piacevoli Notti, ecc. Pironti, Editori francesi in Napoli, pag.87.

Seltene, erste Ausgabe des ersten Buches, das "De Morbis infantum" betitelt ist, veröffentlicht bereits 15 Jahre vor Harris's "De Morbis Acutis Infantum" mit eigenhändigen Besitzvermerk auf dem Titelblatt von Johann Conrad Rasor "ein Arzt zu Frankfurt am May, welcher zu leiden und Strasburg studirte, schrieb eine gelehrte Abhandlung : de ophtalmia, una cum fistula lacrymali. Lugd. 1675." Jöcher (1819), 6.Bd."Franciscus Sylvius de le Boe aus Hanau (1614-1672), ein berühmter Professor der Anatomie in Leyden, dessen Namen der Aquaeductus Sylvii und die Fossa Sylvi tragen, ist der Begründer der iatrochochemischen Schule, die fast alle Krankheiten darauf zurückführt, daß dem Blute Acrimonia (Schärfen) - alkalische oder besonders hyperazide Säfte - beigemischt sind. In seinem Tracttus "De morbis infantum" (1674) erklärt er auch die Kinderkrankheiten in dieser Weise.Er beschreibt in seinem Werke (Peiper, p.130): 1. Icterus,2. Bauchschmerzen,3. grüne, sauer riechende Stühle, 4.Aufstoßen, Singultus, Nausea, Kardialgie, Erbrechen, besonders von geronnener Milch,5. Aphthen, 6. epilerpetische Anfälle 7. Erschwerte Zahnung, 8. S. Tinea (eine Krankheit des behaarten Kopfes) und Scabies, 9. Variola und Morbillen,10. Würmer.Auch "Harris ist der Ansicht, daß 'ein Azidum oder saueres Wesen in denen vornehmsten Zuständen der jungen Kinder durchaus die Oberhand habe und die meisten Zufälle verursache'. Er beruft sich dabei auf Francisus Sylvius de le Boe, der bereits die gleiche Anschauung vertreten hat." Peiper, p.131"1650 entdeckt ... Slyvius in Leyden die Tuberkel in unserem Sinne und beschreibt sie als größere und kleinere drüsenartige Tuberkula in den Lungen. Die Phthise, wird nach ihm durch die ansteckende Atemluft der Phthisiker übertragen." Albrecht Peiper, Chronik der Kinderheilkunde. 4.Aufl. (1965), p.600Rare First Edition - of the first book titled 'De Morbis Infantum", it was published fifteen years before Harris' 'De Morbis Acutis Infantum'. (1689)! Gastro-Acidity as the Cause of Infantile Disease : "Sylvius' 'De Morbis Infantum' which is in the 4th book of his, 'Praxeos Medicae Appendix,' "illustrates his ideas about gastro-intestinal acidity as the cause of infantile disease. His view was adopted by Walter Harris a few years later, but he complained that Sylvius had not followed out the logical sequence of this theory." Herny Schumann, Trent Collection Franciscus de le Boé Sylvius (1614-1672), professor of the practice of medicine of Leyden, was one of the foremost physicians of his time. In 1637, Sylvius, as he was called, is credited by Haller giving the first description of the lateral cerebral fissure which bears his name. Although the aqueduct from the third to the fourth ventricle had been previously noted, Sir Michael Foster says we owe to Sylvius the name of the aqueduct. Both anatomical structures are described in Sylvius's Diputationes Medicarium. To clinical neurology Sylvius contributed the observation that some tremors were always present and some appeared only during movement." Mc Henry , Histotry of Neurology, p.64. "Sylvius was the first to describe the tubercles in phthisis. In the history of medicine, however, Sylvius was the most brillant representative of the iatrochemical school, founded by Paracelsus and continued by J.B. van Helmont, which reached its zenith when Sylvius defended the chemiatric conception from the Leiden chair. He was convinced that all physiological and pathological processes could be conceived perfectly in analogy in the chemical laboratory and could be explained by fermentation, effervescence, and putrefaction. Acid and alkali were considered as fundamental principles in the animal body." G.A. Lindeboom, DSB XIII, pp.222-223Garrison & Morton No. 2197 (4.Vol. of 4 each in itself complete, and with different imprints).

        Reise Beschreibung. in Turckey, Egypten, Palestina, Persien, Ost-Indien, und andere weit entlegene Landschafften.

      Geneva: Johann Herman Widerhold 1674 - Four volumes in one, folio (34 x 21 cm.), half-title, printed title in red and black, engraved pictorial additional title and 30 plates, directions to the binder leaf at end, contemporary vellum, spine with title in gilt, a fine copy. Very fresh example of the first edition in German. "His perceptive and detailed letters, enriched by the romance and poignancy of his devotion to his wife, together create one of the finest works of travel literature" (Howgego). Pietro Della Valle's (1586-1652) text comprises a series of fifty-four letters written to the physician Schipano of Naples during his extensive travels. He left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine. From Sinai he proceeded to Damascus, Aleppo and Baghdad, thence into Persia where he married the Circasssian Setti Manni, who accompanied him on his further travels. In Persia, he spent some time at the court of Shah Abbas, but his wife died at Persepolis in 1622. He had her body embalmed and took it with him, accompanied by her Georgian maidservant. His travels took him further east to the coast of India as far as Calicut, and from Goa to Muscat, thence to Aleppo by way of Basrah, finally reaching Rome in 1626. He subsequently married the maidservant, by whom he had fourteen sons. Rohricht 948; Tobler p98. Cf Blackmer 1712 for French edition; cf Koç, Constantinople I 56 for Italian edition.

        Historia Eclesiástica del Scisma del Reyno de Inglaterra, en la qual se trata de el Origen y cosas más notables, que han sucedido en aquel Reyno, tocantes a nuestra santa Fe Católica, desde el tiempo del Rey Henrique VIII hasta la muerte de la Reyna María de Escoia (.)

      - Pedro de Ribadeneyra (S.J.), "Historia Eclesiástica del Scisma del Reyno de Inglaterra, en la qual se trata de el Origen y cosas más notables, que han sucedido en aquel Reyno, tocantes a nuestra santa Fe Católica, desde el tiempo del Rey Henrique VIII hasta la muerte de la Reyna María de Escoia (.)", Con Privilegio en Madrid en la Imprenta Real, a costa de Florián Annison, mercader de libros, 1674. Ref.: Palau, nº. 266279. 4º., (20,5 x 14 cms.) 12 hs. + 564 págs. (i.e. 560) Encuadernación de época en piel con el lomo rozado. Errores de paginación, de página 241 pasa a 246. Texto a dos columnas con glosas marginales. Anteportada con título restaurada. Portada con escudo xilográfico con flor de Lis del dedicatario, el Excelentísimo señor conde de Villaumbrosa, Presidente de Castilla y de la Junta del Gobierno Universal. Edición Seiscentista de este importante tratado que vio luz por primera vez en Madrid en 1588 en el taller tipográfico de Pedro de Madrigal, y que gozó de numerosas impresiones ese mismo año y a lo largo del siglo XVI (Madrid, 1588; Zaragoza, 1588; Barcelona, 1588; Valencia, 1588; Amberes, 1588; Lisboa, 1588; Lisboa, 1589; segunda parte, Alcalá, 1593; Lisboa, 1594 y Amberes, 1594). Asimismo se incluyó en las Obras completas (Madrid, en casa de la viuda de Pedro de Madrigal, 1595, págs. 447-689), con portada propia y escudo xilográfico de la Compañía. Posteriormente vio luz en Madrid en 1781 y 1786, y Cádiz en 1863. En su mayor parte es una traducción del "De origine ac progressu Schismatis Anglicani libri tres" de Nicolás Sandero (Roma, 1586), como no oculta el propio Ribadeneyra en su Prólogo al lector: "A mis manos ha llegado un libro del doctor Nicolás Sandero, varón excelente, inglés de nación, de profesión teólogo, y de vida ejemplar, en el cual describe los principios y el progreso del cisma que comenzó en Inglaterra el rey Enrique VIII, y los pasos y escalones por donde ha crecido y subido a la cumbre de maldad en que el presente está". Se trata, por lo tanto, de una notable obra histórica que ataca de lleno los antojos del monarca inglés, la constancia de la reina doña Catalina, la torpeza de Ana Bolera, las lisonjas y engaños de los ministros del rey, y especialmente, la paciencia y tormentos que sufrieron los católicos que vivieron la escisión anglicana.

      [London, 1674]. 4to (18.7 cm, 7.4"). 48 pp.. Uncommon abridged version of the Rev. Sherwin's Eirenikon (first published in 1665). The WorldCat record indicates that this self-contained item was likely published as "one of the appendices, separately signed and paginated 'divers things,' annexed to the 1674 edition of Sherwin's Prodromos . . . but possibly also issued separately."    In this densely composed gathering of "the Evidences of Christs [sic] Kingdom and Reign on Earth to come under or after the seventh Trumpet" (p. 24), Sherwin, who was ejected from the Church of England following the Act of Uniformity, offers an examination of => Apocalyptic prophecy.    WorldCat locates => only four U.S. institutional holdings under this title.         Halkett & Lang, III, 172. No record of this separate title in ESTC or Wing (1674 Prodromos: Wing S3410). Removed from a nonce volume; sewing strong. Pages evenly age-toned with scattered small spots of foxing. Scarce.

        A representation of the state of Christianity in England, and of it's [sic] decay and danger from Sectaries aswel [sic] as Papists.

      London Benj. Tooke 1674 - 4to., 36pp., well bound fairly recently in red quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt lettered. A fine, well-margined, and crisp copy. First edition. This, unfortunately anonymous, essay paints a depressing portrait of the Anglican Church in Restoration England. The author notes sadly that Sundays were 'now generally scorn'd and neglected by Anabaptists, Libertines, &c. who in an open defiance to Christianity and the Churches laws, designedly make choice upon that day to engage in the most servile works and drudgeries. The Festivals of the Saints have met with a far worse fate, it being accounted superstitious and ridiculous to praise God for their examples . We have reason to believe', the writer predicts, 'that the Christian faith will be but short-liv'd amongst us'. He gloomily points out that the 'Sectaries' show that they have no interest in preserving church buildings when they make such provocative comments as that 'they will freely pay to a levie that is made to pull down steeple-houses to mend the highways, but will rather starve and rot in a jail than contribute one farthing towards their reparation'. He notes, moreover, that 'most of our barns and stables in which we feed our beasts, are more cleanly and decent and in far better repair, than many of our churches in England, in which we worship our God'.

        Hebdomas observationum de Rebus Sinicis [.].

      Berlin, Georg Schultz, 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). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ARTICULI PACIS & AMICITIAE, INTER.CAROLUM II.ET CELSOS AC PRAEPOTENTES DOMINOS ORDINES GENERALES FOEDERATARUM BELGII PROVINCIARUM.

      London. 1674. - [2],12pp. Small quarto. Modern three quarter calf and cloth, spine gilt. About fine. The First British printing of the Treaty of Westminster, ending the Third Dutch War. The Dutch, beset by enemies on all sides, were forced to make trading concessions throughout the world, and to again surrender New York, which they had retaken. This is the final passage of New York into British hands. The treaty effectively eliminated the Dutch threat to British colonization of the mid-Atlantic states, and meant that in the future the French would be the main challenger to British hegemony in North America. The fifth article provides for the removal of British settlers from Surinam. This is the official Latin text, apparently preceding an English- language printing of the treaty and is quite scarce, with EUROPEAN AMERICANA locating only four copies. DAVENPORT 69.

        Volatiles from the history of Adam and Eve: containing, many unquestioned truths, and allowable notions of several natures.

      London printed for T. Bassett at the George in Fleet-street 1674 - 8vo., (8) + 72 + 75 - 87 + (1) + 88 - 89 + 89 - 188 + (4)pp., including final blank, text continuous despite pagination (see ESTC), blank strip cut away from foot of title-page but not near printed surface or ruled border, rather later calf-backed boards, sympathetically rebacked, spine fully gilt in compartments, with the early 20th century bookplate of Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield*>. Only edition. Wing P.1912. This is an off-piste little book by the natural philosopher and politician Sir John Pettus (ca. 1613-1685), best known now probably for his works on minerals and mining. In his dedicatory piece to his neighbour, Leister Devereux, Viscount Hereford, Pettus observes, self-deprecatingly, that 'possibly, these excursions might have been more excusable to me in my youth, than in my age; but it is a solace to me, that I can be yet youthful in my notions .'. * Leonard Lionel Bloomsfield was an extraordinary bibliophile. His principal library of some 13,255 volumes (including incunabula and manuscripts and a large part of the personal library of the poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning), is now held by Brighton & Hove City Library.

        Eene overlandreis uit Indië naar Nederland, in 1674-1675.[Amsterdam, Frederik Muller, 1863]. 8vo. Offprint, retaining the original pagination and collation, of an article in Bijdragen tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde van Nederlandsch-Indië , 6 (1863). 20th-century stiff paper wrappers, with a printed label on the front.

      First publication of the manuscript journal of Joannes Leeuwenson's 1674/75 overland journey from Colombo (Ceylon/Sri Lanka), along the west coast of India to Banda Abbas (Iran, at the Strait of Hormuz), Basra (Iraq), Aleppo (Syria), and Iskenderun (Turkey), then on to Livorno (Italy), and through Italy and Germany to Amsterdam. The manuscript itself is titled "Daghregister van de Landreijs, gedaeen bij mij Joannes Leeuwenson, ..." Although described as an journey over land, parts naturally had to be made by sea as well, and Leeuwenson names numerous ships in the various Dutch fleets, as well as the enemy ships they encountered. He quotes in full (4 pp.) the letter with orders given to him by VOC director François de Haese at Banda Abbas as well as several other letters he received or wrote. He gives a detailed description of the terrain and the difficulties in finding and acquiring supplies, beasts of burden, etc., and relates his encounters with Persians, Ottomans and other Islamic peoples.In very good condition. An important early journal of an overland voyage through India, Iran and the Middle East.

        Korte beschrijving van de ontdekking en der verdere lotgevallen van Nieuw-Nederland, weleer eene volkplanting van het gemeenebest der Vereenigde Nederlanden in America.Middelburg, S. van Benthem, 1818. 8vo. With a large folding map (plate size 54.5 x 42 cm). Contemporary paper wrappers, with parts of the publisher's original printed-paper spine.

      Muller, America 1086; Sabin 38745. First edition of Lambrecht's account of the Dutch colony in America up to its cession to England in 1674, as well as an account of the fate of the Dutch settlers after the British takeover. It covers the discovery and exploration of the regions around present-day New York, the Dutch relations with the English colonies in Virginia and Massachusetts Bay, and the English takeover. New York was beginning to establish itself as America's leading city in the early nineteenth century, and a growing interest in its history made the history of the Dutch colony topical. The folding map, entitled "Kaart van Nieuw-Nederland" combines an up-to-date cartographic image based on Aaron Arrowsmith's 1804 Map of America, with historical data from maps in Arent Roggeveen's 1675 sea atlas and Arnoldus Montanus's 1671 atlas of America. In 1817 Lambrechtsen (1752-1823) was made an honorary member of the New York Historical Society, which published an English translation of his book in 1841.With occasional minor foxing, but otherwise in fine condition with the final integral blank leaf and virtually untrimmed. The sprinkled paper wrappers, covering only the sides, remain in very good condition, but the spine retains only tattered parts of the original paper spine with the printed title, leaving the sewing and the folds of the quires partly visible. A fascinating Dutch history of Dutch America.

        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 (1654–77), 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)

        Klare Onderrichtinge der voortreffelijcke Worstel-konst,

      Amsterdam: Johannes Jansonius van Waesberge,, 1674. Verhandelende hoeman in alle voorvallen van Twist in Handtgemeenschap, sich kan hoeden: en alle Aengrepen, Borst-stooten, Vuyst-slagen &c. verstetten. Quarto (235 × 189 mm). Contemporary full vellum, remnant of ink lettering to the spine. 71 etched plates by Romeyn de Hooghe, plate 6 was originally duplicated and the duplication corrected at the time by the imposition of the correct plate numbered 7, over it, so neatly is this done that it is barely visible from the recto. A little rubbed, the front free endpaper somewhat creased and with some loss at the lower corner, light browning, a few faint damp-stains in margins, occasional finger-soiling, some minor chipping at the edges, but overall very good. First edition of this renowned manual of self-defence. The work is particularly notable for the telling combination of de Hooghe's clear, but nonetheless dramatic, illustrations, and the simplicity and lucidity of Petter's written instructions. Prof. Sydney Anglo describes it as "historically speaking, the most important treatise on unarmed combat ever printed ... the finest of all wrestling books and deservedly the most famous" (The Martial Arts of Renaissance Europe, p.190). While Eli Steenput, in the introduction to his English translation (Journal of Western Martial Art, October 2000), remarks that "It is probably unique in presenting an effective and complete unarmed combat system in a format from which it would be actually possible to learn". In themselves de Hooghe's plates are remarkable, fully justifying Otto Benesch's description of him as "not only the greatest Dutch etcher of the period, but the only great artist Holland produced at the end of her classical era … one of the greatest illustrators of all time, comprehending within himself all the various faculties of the universal mind of the Baroque". Wrestling-master Petter's school of practical self-defence for the bourgeoisie on the dangerous streets of Amsterdam, clearly differentiates the book from the earlier tradition of wrestling books, such as the Ringbüchlein, or Fabian von Auerswald's Ringer-Kunst, where smiling contestants are shown engaged in a sporting contest. Iinstead the plates portray well-dressed gentlemen tangling with grimacing, sometimes armed, street toughs. Petter died shortly before publication, and the book was seen through the press by his widow, and his pupil Robert Cors, who explains the principles that lay behind his master's method; "The forces which were lent to the human understanding by nature, are not present alike in each art, and if they were, then they would nevertheless not be developed in the same way. Of two arts one is usually superior, this is in general the one based on knowledge. Most people do not seriously consider how they could secure themselves against all manner ofd abuse or assault, as might be levelled against them by evil-hearted villains, eager for violence. Our wrestler has studied this problem, first developing his mind, then looking for effective strikes and holds, by which one can defend against violent attacks with shoves, punches, or a knife. These he has practised diligently, and, to benefit the community, he has decided finally to compile this instructional book … Cruel Death has untimely taken him from us, before he could bring this project to conclusion. The images had already been prepared during his life, ordered and provided with explanatory captions to instruct the studious wrestler". By way of advertisement, Cors mentions that he is "prepared to instruct interested parties in these techniques for reasonable remuneration and be reached at the Witwe house of Nicolaes Petter on the Prinsengracht in the Gustavusburgh not far from the combat academy". Far from common institutionally, just 20 or so copies world-wide, with most of them in the Netherlands, and very rarely encountered commercially, particularly so in such wonderful, unrestored contemporary condition. This copy with an early anonymous bookplate and the later plate of Amsterdam doctor and bibliophile, Bob Luza, whose collection was sold in 1981.
