RAY, JOHN
H. Bruges for Tho. Burrell, London 1674 - First edition of the first book on English dialects, and the first English dialect dictionary; 12mo, pp. [14], [1]-178 (i.e. 148); blank leaf A1 is not preserved, by the blank L4 is; title page printed in red and black; bottom margin trimmed close (but no loss); contemporary full calf, blindstamped fleurons in the corners, neatly and appropriately rebacked in the 20th century. Early inscription at the top of the title page: "Anglesey, March 30, 1678."While on his botanical journeys throughout England, which brought Ray (1627-1705) everlasting fame, he had the opportunity to study local antiquities and customs, as well as local dialects. This work, together with his Collection of English Proverbs (1670), is an outgrowth of these travels. On one of his treks into Cornwall he made notes on the smelting industry, and recorded his observations (included in a separate section at the back of this volume) on the smelting and refining of silver, tin and iron. Also included is a brief section on husbandry. The sections on the names of British birds and fishes were largely the work of Francis Willughby. An expanded and much more common edition appeared in 1691. Keynes 23 ("one of his more important publications"); Alston IX, 1; Kennedy 10623; Wing R-388 [Attributes: First Edition]

Aldrete, Bernardo
Melchor Sánchez, Madrid 1674 - Bernardo Aldrete (1565 - 1645) Canónigo en Córdoba, fue uno de los hombres más doctos de su tiempo. Conocía las lenguas caldea, arábiga, hebrea, griega, latina, francesa e italiana. Aplicó su saber erudito al estudio de la lengua española y publicó esta importante obra dividida en tres libros, el primero de los cuales ocupa 69 pgs., 52 el segundo y otras tantas el tercero. El ejemplar que ofrecemos está bien conservado aunque no deja de acusar el paso del tiempo y el pergamino sufre algunos desperfectos. El cuerpo del libro está parcialmente desprendido en el lomo, y cinco hojas, de la 60 a la 65, aparecen comidas por la polilla en la esquina inferior derecha afectando ligerísimamente a dos de las notas originales, no a las columnas del texto.

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.

Pico della Mirandola, Giovanni Francesco
Paris: Sumptibus Ludovici Billaine, 1674. 12mo (15 cm, 5.9"). Vol. I of II. Frontis., [18] ff., 385 [i.e., 375], [1] pp. Plates. Authoritative edition of Savonarola's biography first printed in the 1530's, the volume in hand containing both the entire "life" and the famous compendium of his revelations. Count Giovanni Francesco Pico della Mirandola (1469–1533, not to be confused with his uncle Giovanni, the famous philosopher, 1463–94) knew Savonarola personally, and witnessed his martyrdom in 1498. After years of writing and revising, and reviews by friends who also knew Savonarola, his biography was finally finished in 1530 and later translated anonymously into Italian. The present edition is in Latin and was edited by Jacques Quétif (1618–98), a Dominican priest working chez Louis Billaine in Paris — France of the Ancien Régime regarding Savonarola as an authentic spiritual leader and not "just" the vexatious Dominican priest who antagonized Alexander VI, spoke out against humanism, and was excommunicated and executed for heresy. The text is printed in roman and italic with side- and shouldernotes, and decorated with a few woodcut initials, headpieces and tail ornaments, with a separate section title for the Compendium revelationum, introduced with a preface by Florentine poet Girolamo Benivieni (1453–1542). A colophon at the end of the Lamentatio sponsae Christi (final leaf) is dated 1537 for the Venetian edition by Tridino. In addition to a finely engraved frontispiece portrait of Savonarola, there are => eight plates, numbering four en … [Click Below for Full Description]

MORERI, Louis
Lyon: J. Girin et B. Rivière, 1674 Book. Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (365x225 mm). [32], 1346 pp. Half title, title printed in red and black, engraved frontispiece by G. Audran. Contemporary full leather, 6 raised bands gilt in compartments (some wear to boards, old repairs to head and foot of spine), offsetting to frontispiece, title page with old ownership inscription, minor worming (mainly marginal), little dampstaining to upper corner of few leaves, marbled endpapers. A crisp unfoxed copy of the first edition and of greatest rarity. Only two copies listed in KVK (one in Zurich and another in Paris BnF), no copy in the USA. ---- Brunet III, 1901; Zischka 7; Carter/Muir, Printing and the Mind of Man 155a - FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST MODERN ENCYCLOPEDIA. Moreri's work is ranked, along with Bayle's Dictionnaire Historique et Critique, as one of the first vernacular encyclopedias to make an impact on the European world of letters. Moreri deliberately designed his encyclopedia as an apologia and defence of the Roman Catholic Church. It is also noteworthy for its emphasis on biographical and historical entries which for a long time were neglected by other compilers such as Harris, Chambers and Bayle (whose own Dictionnaire was composed as a direct response to Moreri's work). It was eclipsed by Diderot's Encyclopedie (Paris, 1751-65)..

LACHMUND, F.
Amsterdam, A. Frisius, 1674. 12mo (130 x 75mm). pp. 52, (6), with 5 (4 folded) engraved plates. Recent boards. First edition and a very scarce publication on the Albatross and one of the earliest illustrated monographs of a single bird, 'among the greatest rarities in ornithological literature' (E.P. Goldschmidt). In the name 'Diomedea' is a reference to the mythical metamorphosis of the companions of the Greek warrior Diomedes into birds. The Albatross was part of Lachmund's own natural history cabinet at Hildesheim. The work is dedicated to Johan Daniel Major, professor of anatomy at Kiel. The first plate (210 x 175 mm) shows a full depiction of the Albatross, an other plate shows its large and strong beak, while the remaining plates show anatomical details. Not in any of the major ornithological bibliographies; The British Museum Natural History catalogue lists it as 'wanting'.

I soci si erano obbligati a fornire i riassunti delle opere in lingua straniera pubblicate in Europa; lo stesso Nazzari avrebbe curato le novità provenienti dalla Francia, Salvatore Serra le altre.Gli argomenti trattati in questa annata sono d'interesse letterario, filosofico, storico e scientifico-medico e sono tutti molto interessanti, curiosi ed alcuni inediti.Ne citiamo alcuni: Lorenzo Bellini,Gustus organum>br>Christiano Hugenio, Horologium OscillatorioAnonimi, Euclidis elementa geometricaBernardino Genga, Anatomia chirurgica?

Pico della Mirandola, Giovanni Francesco.
Sumptibus Ludovici Billaine, 1674. Authoritative edition of Savonarola's biography first printed in the 1530's, the volume in hand containing both the entire "life" and the famous compendium of his revelations. Count Giovanni Francesco Pico della Mirandola (1469-1533, not to be confused with his uncle Giovanni, the famous philosopher, 1463-94) knew Savonarola personally, and witnessed his martyrdom in 1498. After years of writing and revising, and reviews by friends who also knew Savonarola, his biography was finally finished in 1530 and later translated anonymously into Italian. The present edition is in Latin and was edited by Jacques Quétif (1618-98), a Dominican priest working chez Louis Billaine in Paris -- France of the Ancien Régime regarding Savonarola as an authentic spiritual leader and not "just" the vexatious Dominican priest who antagonized Alexander VI, spoke out against humanism, and was excommunicated and executed for heresy. The text is printed in roman and italic with side- and shouldernotes, and decorated with a few woodcut initials, headpieces and tail ornaments, with a separate section title for the Compendium revelationum, introduced with a preface by Florentine poet Girolamo Benivieni (1453-1542). A colophon at the end of the Lamentatio sponsae Christi (final leaf) is dated 1537 for the Venetian edition by Tridino. In addition to a finely engraved frontispiece portrait of Savonarola, there are => eight plates, numbering four engraved coats of arms, for the Atestina, Medici, Borgia and Sforza families, and => four large foldout letterpress fam … [Click Below for Full Description]

The present work has a charming engraving on the title, showing an Arab in the process of preparing opium in a typical idyllic German landscape, with a river, trees and farmhouses. 'Es ist eine ausgezeichnete Monographie mit 41 Kapiteln, worin alles damals bekannte über Opium referiert wird' (H. Neuninger). The work describes the pharmacological aspects of opium.
