BORRICHIUS, Olaus.
Copenhagen: Sumptibus Petri Hauboldi, Reg. Acad. Bibl. 1674. First edition, and "one of the few copies having the folding plate illustrating three types of retorts, as well as the four-page dedication to Jean Baptiste Colbert. According to the Wellcome Library catalogue, 'this plate is a copy from a MS. Of Zosimus (ca. 500 A.D.) of the earliest known illustration of distilling apparatus.' In this work Borrichius answers Hermann Conring's De Hermetica Aegyptiorum Medicina (Helmstedt, 1648), wherein the extreme antiquity attributed to alchemy had been seriously doubted. Borrichius's book contains valuable information on the early history of alchemy. The substantial final portion supports Paracelsian theory as applied to medicine. No other editions except this one of 1674 exist. Although several works by Borrichius were reprinted in Magnet's Bibliotheca Chemica Curiosa (Geneva, 1702), this was not among them. "Ferguson states that there 'were apparently two issues of this book, for I have seen other copies without the dedication and the plate.' Duveen confirms this, his copy being without the plate and dedication. The Wellcome Library catalogue states that this is the second issue, although on what authority I do not know. This issue is very rare." (The Roy G. Neville Historical Chemical Library). Small 4to (197 x 147 mm), contemporary vellum, pp. [xii], 448 [8:index] and folding engraved plate facing p. 156, light uniform browning throughout, in all avery good copy in its original state.

Diego Hurtado de Mendoza
Imprenta Real, Madrid 1674 - Diego Hurtado de Mendoza, Guerra de Granada, Madrid, Imprenta Real, 1674. 4°., 6 hs. + 147 fols. Encuadernación en piel del S. XVIII, con pequeñas restauraciones en papel. Segunda edición de esta importante historia de la sublevación de los moriscos granadinos publicada póstumamente por el Cronista de Indias, Luis Tribaldos de Toledo. La edición príncipe se publicó en Lisboa en 1627, y pese a que contaba con licencia para ser impresa en Castilla en 1628, hubo que esperar casi medio siglo para que apareciera esta segunda impresión. El ejemplar posee un error de impresión en la página 70 (véase la fotografía) y unos pequeños orificios en la portada que no afectan al texto. Defectos todos propios de estas impresiones españolas del Seiscientos de baja calidad. Por lo demás, un raro y buen ejemplar en una edición que apenas aparece en el mercado. En la siguiente centuria volvió a imprimirse en Valencia (1776) en una version ilustrada a manos de Benito Monfort, con una variante a cargo de Salvador Faulí, mercader de libros. Ambas habituales en el mercado. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

MAYOW, John
Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1674. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Tractatus quinque medico-physici. Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1674. 8vo (189x111 mm), [40] 1-335 [1], 3-152 pp., engraved portrait and 6 folding plates, contemporary calf, rebacked, somewhat spotted, slight fraying to edge of portait, new endpapers, p. 189 torn with partial loss of two words. Provenance: Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, inkstamps on title. ----NLM/Krivatsy 7653; Waller 6392; Wellcome IV, p. 93; Wing M-1537; Norman 1474. - FIRST EDITION, including revisions of two treatises (De respiratione and De rachitide) first published in 1668, and three new works, including his most celebrated work, De sal-nitro et spiritu nitro-aereo, on combustion, respiration, the composition of the atmosphere, and aerial - nitrate. He proved what both he and Hooke contended, that only a portion of air is used in respiration and combustion, by demonstrating that air in an enclosed space, when burned or breathed, is reduced only by one fourteenth. He also discovered that the muscles were the source of animal heat, and the double-articulation of the ribs with the spine. '[Mayow's] Tractatus, embodying all his brilliant conclusions, is one of the best English medical classics' (Garrison-Morton 578). Good.

PARDIES, Ignace Gaston
Paris, Martin, 1674. ____ Seconde édition. Elle suit le texte de la première édition de 1670 à laquelle l'auteur a ajouté des "Remarques sur une lettre de M. Descartes touchant la lumière", (pp. 139-191) où il critique les théories de Descartes. Les fautes signalées à l'errata de la première édition, ont été corrigées. Illustré de nombreuses figures dans le texte. Usures aux coiffes et aux coins, mais exemplaire très correct par ailleurs. "Discours du mouvement local" was published [in this second edition] with additional remarks designed to counter the charge of Cartesianism. Yet although Pardies clearly derived a geat deal from the Cartesian heritage and felt obliged to defend himself in this regard, Cartesianism was not his principal source. Through the "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society" he was directly informed of the advences of English science (quadrature of hyperbola and the competition concerning the laws of impact); and in Paris he closely followed the work of the newly established Académie Royale des Sciences and especially that of Huygens, with whom he was in personal contact". DSB 10, 314. *****. In-12. Collation : 191 pp. Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné, tranches mouchetées. (Reliure de l'époque.).

GOGLER, Carl de.
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. [Attributes: First Edition]

ANONIMO (Eustachio MANFREDI)
1674. MANFREDI, Eustachio. - Nacque a Bologna il 20 sett. 1674, da Alfonso, notaio, originario di Lugo, e Anna Maria Fiorini. Prima di lui era nata Maddalena (1673-1744); vennero poi Teresa (1679-1767), Emilio (1679-1742), Gabriele, Eraclito (1682-1759).Le sorelle aiutarono il M. anche nel preparare la Compendiosa informazione di fatto sopra i confini della Communità ferrarese d'Ariano, con lo Stato veneto, pubblicata anonima nel 1735, suo ultimo lavoro connesso all'ufficio di sovrintendente.L'opera, anonima e priva di note tipografiche, si ritiene stampata a Roma nel 1735, ma carte della zona deltizia del Po in appendice risultano disegnate e stampate a Ferrara nel 1736. Raccolta cronologica e ragionata di documenti, mirò a provare che dal Medioevo la zona di Ariano era stata dominio estense. Opera stampata nel 1735 a Bologna (o a Roma), concordemente attribuita ad Eustachio Manfredi di Lugo, morto nel 1739 e i cui manoscritti erano conservati nella biblioteca di Bologna. Il volume tratta della controversia tra lo stato pontificio e la repubblica veneta, causata dai mutamenti del delta, dovuti al fiume Po e causanti la mutazione dei confini tra i due stati. L'opera a stampa è rarissima, poiché si dice, fatta ritirare e distruggere dal Papa Benedetto XIV, in quanto pregiudiziale delle ragioni della Santa Sede verso lo Stato Veneto; come risulta dalla prefazione di una copia manoscritta se ne conosceva una copia completa nella biblioteca comunale di Ferrara e una seconda presso una biblioteca privata di Ariano testo in italiano e latino; 3 tavv. più volte ripiegate f.t. e ca … [Click Below for Full Description]

EDO RYORISHU
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.

SHAKESPEARE, William [William D'avenant].
"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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
