Also presented are detailed instructions for the cultivation of fruit (lemon, orange and fig trees are highlighted), including grafting and the training of vines. In the remaining two volumes, Pieter Nyland, a physician and horticulturist, provides a calendar of garden operations, a veterinary manual for farm use, advice on distilling and beekeeping, and (by an anonymous author) cooking recipes with an index of ingredients. The unusually striking illustrations give a vivid idea of the layout and decoration of contemporary gardens. N. B.

      Abraham Wolfgang, Amsterdam 1675 - First edition, very rare and a fine copy, of Swammerdam?s treatise on the life-cycle and anatomy of the mayfly, containing his first published descriptions and illustrations of the internal anatomy of an insect. ?His Ephemeri Vita contains some very remarkable pieces of minute anatomy. The figures, drawn by himself, are the best early representations of the dissection of an insect? (Hagströmer Library, description of 1681 English translation). ?In his last work, on the may-fly, Swammerdam gave the first complete account of metamorphosis ? much in his descriptions was not superseded before the nineteenth century ? on a visit to Paris he repeated before a meeting at Thévenot?s house his dissection of the may-fly, and an offer was made to tempt him to Florence? (Hall, From Galileo to Newton, pp. 168-9). In 1669 Swammerdam had published his Historia insectorum generalis, which contained many beautiful illustrations of insects, but did not attempt to describe their minute anatomy. ?A comparison of his investigations contained in Historia Insectorum Generalis (1669) and those that appeared in his next major published work, on the mayfly (Ephemeri Vita, 1675), shows that a series of fundamental changes had taken place in Swammerdam?s science. Most importantly, he began to study the internal structures of insects using microscopy, dissection, and careful experimentation. Also, like Malpighi, he presented his vision to the world via some stunning drawings, in which the component anatomical parts are treated as separate, isolated, and often utterly strange objects, without reference to size or function ? Swammerdam was carrying out relatively crude dissections of large insects in the second half of the 1660s ? However, prior to 1669 he never put the two skills together? (Cobb, p. 124). No copy listed on ABPC/RBH.?Despite a scientific career that lasted only a dozen years, Swammerdam (1637-80) was one of the outstanding comparative anatomists of the seventeenth century. His most remarkable work was in the field of insect anatomy, which he undertook in order to disprove still-current Aristotelian notions (which he opposed upon religious grounds) that insects lack internal anatomy, develop by metamorphosis (sudden and complete transformation) and arise from spontaneous generation. By refining his techniques of micro-dissection and injection to the point where he could use them on the smallest and most delicate anatomical parts, Swammerdam was able to illustrate for the first time the complex internal structures of insects, including their reproductive organs; and to demonstrate the gradual development of an insect?s adult form throughout all its larval stages. These observations are ?indubitably the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects? (Cole, p. 285)? (Norman).?Passing over the first work on insects (1669), which deals only with external morphology and metamorphosis, ? we come to the more relevant monograph on the may-fly, first published in Dutch in 1675 ? The biology of the Ephemeri Vita ? shows us Swammerdam at his best. He started work on the may-fly as early as 1667, and mentions dissecting the nymphs in 1670, and making notes on the metamorphosis in 1671 ? the anatomy of the small nymph is described from beautiful dissections, and in this respect Swammerdam is clearly superior to Malpighi ? In addition to the anatomy of the species the astonishing life-cycle, in which a momentary adult existence closes, with the savage ruthlessness of Nature, a prolonged and active larval life, is laid bare for the first time? (Cole, pp. 278-9).?Swammerdam was one among the many who marveled over imaginings of minute anatomies, but when he wrote the Historia he still emphasized not the prospect but the apparent hopelessness of ever actually observing one. The disposition of the limbs, muscles, veins, and nerves in the anatomy of the larger animals was astonishing enough, he wrote, but to fi

      Amsterdam: Abraham Wolfgang, 1675. First edition, very rare and a fine copy, of Swammerdam's treatise on the life-cycle and anatomy of the mayfly, containing his first published descriptions and illustrations of the internal anatomy of an insect. "His Ephemeri Vita contains some very remarkable pieces of minute anatomy. The figures, drawn by himself, are the best early representations of the dissection of an insect" (Hagströmer Library, description of 1681 English translation). "In his last work, on the may-fly, Swammerdam gave the first complete account of metamorphosis ... much in his descriptions was not superseded before the nineteenth century ... on a visit to Paris he repeated before a meeting at Thévenot's house his dissection of the may-fly, and an offer was made to tempt him to Florence" (Hall, From Galileo to Newton, pp. 168-9). In 1669 Swammerdam had published his Historia insectorum generalis, which contained many beautiful illustrations of insects, but did not attempt to describe their minute anatomy. "A comparison of his investigations contained in Historia Insectorum Generalis (1669) and those that appeared in his next major published work, on the mayfly (Ephemeri Vita, 1675), shows that a series of fundamental changes had taken place in Swammerdam's science.

Also, like Malpighi, he presented his vision to the world via some stunning drawings, in which the component anatomical parts are treated as separate, isolated, and often utterly strange objects, without reference to size or function ...

No copy listed on ABPC/RBH. "Despite a scientific career that lasted only a dozen years, Swammerdam (1637-80) was one of the outstanding comparative anatomists of the seventeenth century.

These observations are 'indubitably the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects' (Cole, p. 285)" (Norman). "Passing over the first work on insects (1669), which deals only with external morphology and metamorphosis, ... we come to the more relevant monograph on the may-fly, first published in Dutch in 1675 ...

"Swammerdam was one among the many who marveled over imaginings of minute anatomies, but when he wrote the Historia he still emphasized not the prospect but the apparent hopelessness of ever actually observing one. The disposition of the limbs, muscles, veins, and nerves in the anatomy of the larger animals was astonishing enough, he wrote, but to find the same in animals whose whole bodies were smaller than the point of one's knife was stupefying. In fact, Swammerdam had yet to face so small an anatomy and really did not expect to. Since we lack the eye and the hand for even the slightest dissection of these parts, he continued more realistically, that inner form will remain beyond our reach. "Although the interest in comparative anatomy had prompted Swammerdam to turn to insect dissections, those efforts had as yet produced no significant initiatives with the microscope and showed little prospect of doing so. Moreover, ... there is little in the Historia to suggest that Swammerdam as yet even contemplated a general, systematic program of insect dissection with or without the aid of a lens ... "The Historia insectorum generalis was in press when Swammerdam in 1669 received a copy of Malpighi's Dissertatio epistolica de bombyce, published that same year by the Royal Society. In that remarkable work, Malpighi joined a study of the life history of the silkworm to an account and illustration of the anatomy of both the moth and the caterpillar. Swammerdam was deeply impressed. He was also driven to repeat and, if possible, surpass Malpighi's dissections. "The attempt to duplicate those dissections proved a profoundly educational experience for Swammerdam. Malpighi himself later stressed the great difficulty and wearisomeness of the undertaking, for it was completely new, he wrote, and the anatomical parts so small, fragile, and intertwined as to demand their own special method of dissection; it was so exhausting that after several months his eyes became inflamed and he succumbed to fevers. Swammerdam likewise described it as the most trying kind of dissection. Indeed, at first it seemed hopeless, he confessed, for he was ignorant of Malpighi's method; but in time and through chance he discovered a method of his own. "The silkworm was only the beginning, however, and as Swammerdam tried his newly acquired techniques on other insects his skills developed rapidly. He dissected the nymph of the mayfly in 1670 with great finesse ... He would later stress the "ingenious inventions" - presumably new techniques - he had to devise and the variety of aids to which he was forced to turn, among them being necessarily now the microscope (of which Malpighi, however, had made little mention in his own De Bombyce). Swammerdam now dissected directly below a lens, and even the lancets and styluses he used - though a fine pair of scissors was his key instrument - were so small that he sharpened them under the lens as well. The more delicate and difficult parts of an insect's anatomy he removed from the body and placed on a small, sometimes coloured, piece of glass "as thin as can be blown at the lamp." The bit of insect anatomy having dried on the fragment of glass, it was pasted to a bit of cork and the cork stuck on a needle's point, there to be observed more closely with the microscope" (Ruestow, The Microscope in the Dutch Republic: The Shaping of Discovery, pp. 111-113). "Swammerdam conceived the study of nature as an exploration and confirmation of God's glory, and thus as a kind of divine worship. However, his investigations were also a time-consuming occupation, which prevented the giving of due attention to traditional forms of worship. Over the years Swammerdam came to feel that, by indulging in scientific research, he was neglecting his vital duties as a Christian. In the preface to Ephemeri Vita, dated 12 July 1675, he wrote, "I have now spent enough time and labour in the investigation of Nature and have followed my own depraved will and pleasure therein. Wherefore I now intend to follow solely God's will, to surrender my will to Him, and withdraw all my thoughts from the multiple things so as to offer them to heavenly reflections only." "Swammerdam was obviously trapped in a crisis, struggling with conflicting desires. In the end this resulted in a decision to renounce scientific research and to join the religious community of Antoinette Bourignon. This decision was supported by his feeling that his investigations "have already served me as a ladder to climb up to Him, and one does no longer need the means once the goal has been reached. For, if one continues to wish to use the means, they become nothing but impediments." "However, from the circumstances that delayed his departure to Bourignon's side it is clear that Swammerdam's mind was still inclined to science. He first saw his treatise on the mayfly, entitled Ephemeri Vita, through the press. This book is a perfect reflection of his state of mind at the time. It is a mixture of a superb study of the life and anatomy of the mayfly, of lamentations on the futility of human life, of prayers and of digressions into theological questions" (Fournier, p. 4). Swammerdam stated that his principal object in laying his book before the public was "to give us wretched mortals a lively image of the shortness of human life, and thereby induce us, by frequent admonitions, to aspire to a better state of being". The letter in which Bourignon gives permission to publish is printed in the book: it begins as follows: "I have received your letter of the 4th of this year, in which letter you ask my advice again on the publication of the treatise on a small animal, which lives only one day and has to suffer much during this time. Which appears to me to be the image of a human, who lives no longer than a day, if compared to eternity. During this time he has however to suffer various kinds of miseries so that a thousand animals are not as miserable as a human, subjected to the elements, plagued by all kinds of animals which bite or kill. And if this publication could contribute to the education of the salvation of our fellow men, I would be of the opinion that you should publish it, as the last of your brilliant works, so that you can devote yourself to more serious pursuits, pursuits which relate to eternity, in the future." "Before he left Amsterdam Swammerdam also went through the notes of his researches and destroyed some of these, among them his notes on the anatomy of the silkworm. However, most of his notes were still extant when he resumed his scientific activities about a year later, and he took care that his drawings of the silkworm's interior parts were sent to Malpighi, so that the results of his work would not be lost. "During his stay in Bourignon's community the conflict between science and religion was to some extent resolved in Swammerdam's mind. Upon his return to Amsterdam, he devoted all his time to editing his notes, which he elaborated and completed and which were supplemented with a series of newly initiated investigations" (Fournier, pp. 4-5). After two years of intense effort and new research, Swammerdam's manuscripts, written in Dutch, were ready for the press, but the Latin translation he considered necessary had yet to be made. He entrusted the manuscripts to a Leiden translator, but soon afterwards he contracted a fever and died on 17 February 1680. There the matter rested for almost half a century, until in 1727 the great Dutch physician Herman Boerhaave (1668-1738) acquired the manuscripts and eventually published them in two large volumes as Bybel der Natuure (1737-8). The anatomical section of the present work is included in the Bybel. The Ephemeri vita was translated into English in 1681 under the title Ephemeri vita: or the Natural History and Anatomy of the Ephemeron, A Fly that Lives but Five Hours, and edited by Edward Tyson, famous for his work on "the missing link", entitled Orang-Outang, sive homo Sylvestris: or the Anatomy of a Pygmie compared with that of a Monkey, an Ape and a man (1699). This translation is also rare (three copies listed on ABPC/RBH).

        Asia Portuguesa.

      Lisboa: Henrique Valente de Oliveira & A. Craesbeeck, 1666-1675. Three volumes, quarto, each with an engraved ornamental title-page; a complete set with 19 engraved and woodblock folding plates (one in duplicate, for a total of 20 plates), numerous woodblock portraits throughout the text; eighteenth-century speckled dark calf, spines gilt with raised bands and original black leather labels. Rare and influential history of the Portuguese empire in Asia, with rich and vibrant descriptions of ritual and customs in India, China, and Southeast Asia. Manuel Faria y Sousa (1590-1649) wrote this history in the tradition of the sixteenth-century masterpiece Décadas da Asia by João de Barros; Boies Penrose characterised him as 'the last writer to attempt a chronicle of the Portuguese empire in the grand manner... ' (Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance, p. 283). Avid chronicler and polyglot, Faria y Sousa lived in Madrid for most of his life in the service of the Spanish Crown. Here he collected books, dispatches and manuscript materials of all kinds in preparation of his chronicle of the Portuguese empire across the globe. Like many contemporary Portuguese scholars, Faria y Sousa wrote in Spanish for an increasingly cosmopolitan audience curious about the exotic customs of India and the far east. Asia Portuguesa was an important text in disseminating information on the religious and ritual practices of India, China, Japan, Ethiopia and Ceylon. His inclusion of Hindu rites in Malabar did much to inform (sometimes misinform) European perceptions of Hinduism. Some years earlier, Faria y Sousa had translated the work of the Jesuit missionary Alvarez de Semedo who worked in China, which became an important source for the present work: 'the chapters on China... also form an ethnohistory of the Ming' (Lach and Van Kley, III p.1568).The scope of Asia Portuguesa is impressive, combining mercantile and military geographical detail and rich descriptions of native life. After the revolt of Portugal from Spanish dominion in 1640 the author suffered for his long-term association with the Royal Family. On his decease in 1649, Faria y Sousa's significant archive of books and manuscripts returned to the custody of his son who prepared the present work for publication. The wide scope of works that Faria y Sousa consulted lends importance to the detailed list of works included in the third volume: 'Included in this bibliography are most of the books then in print which related to Asia, as well as manuscripts prepared by officials and missionaries in the field' (Lach and Van Kley, p.355). Asia Portuguesa was republished several times in Spanish and an English translation by John Stevens was published in London in 1694-95. Some light sporadic water-staining to text leaves, early ink ownership inscriptions on title-pages scratched through.

      London: John Martyn, 1675. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. I. Anatome plantarum. Cui subjungitur appendix iteratas & auctas ejusdem authoris de ovo incubato observationes continens. II. Anatomes plantarum pars altera. 1675-1679. Two works in two volumes. Folio (362x236 mm). [4], 15, [5], 82, [2], 20; [8], 93, [3] pp. including elaborately engraved allegorical frontispiece in each volume by Robert White, letterpress titles in red & black with large engraved arms of the Royal Society, and 100 engraved plates. Contemporary vellum (soiled, corners worn, spine of vol I repaired). Engraved frontispiece and title-leave in vol. 1 reinforced at gutter, frontispiece also with paper repair to lower corner, tear to lower margin of frontispiece and title leave in vol. 2. Light browning, occasional spotting and mainly marginal dampstaining to text and plates, few plates in vol. 2 with wormholes in lower margin not affecting image. Provenance: W.V.W.H. (initials dated 1687); The Janus Foundation of San Francisco (bookplates to pastedowns); W. Junk (bookseller labels). Fine copy with ample margins. Complete. ----Dibner 22; Horblit 43a; Norman 1430; Garrison-Morton 536; Henrey 239; Morton, pp 178-194; Nissen (botany) 1269; Wing M-345. - FIRST EDITION. Malpighi, together with Nehemiah Grew, founded the science of plant anatomy: both men published their first works on the subject in 1671, and although they worked independently of one another, each was aware of the other's continuing investigations over the fifteen years following. Unlike Grew's Anatomy of Plants, which was written as a complete textbook of plant anatomy, Malpighi's Anatome plantarum contained only the account of his own researches. Apart from the contributions paralleled in Grew's work, the Anatome is valuable for its clear accounts of details Grew failed to see, and for introducing a standard Latin-based terminology for the various plant organs and structures. As with Grew, the microscope was fundamental to Malpighi's investigations; "the many anatomical observations made by Grew and Malpighi still excite astonished admiration by their completeness, accuracy and grasp of reality - almost all eventually became part of the enduring foundation of plant anatomy" (Morton, p 192). The first volume of Malpighi's work also contains as an appendix a reprint of his De ovi incubato (1672). Very Good.

In Den Nederlandtsen Hovenier, Jan van der Groen, royal gardener to the Prince of Orange, sets forth principles of garden design (for flower beds, parterres, mazes, arbors) and garden architecture (pergolas, trellises, sundials, cloches, greenhouses) drawn from examples at the princely country seats of Ryswick, Honsholredyck, and Huys ‘ten Bosch. Also presented are detailed instructions for the cultivation of fruit (lemon, orange and fig trees are highlighted), including grafting and the training of vines. In the remaining two volumes, Pieter Nyland, a physician and horticulturist, provides a calendar of garden operations, a veterinary manual for farm use, advice on distilling and beekeeping, and (by an anonymous author) cooking recipes with an index of ingredients. The unusually striking illustrations give a vivid idea of the layout and decoration of contemporary gardens. N. B.

        The case of the bankers and their creditors more fully stated and examined; and a second time printed, with more than a third part added. Wherein the property of the subject in this and the like cases is soberly asserted by the Common and Statute Lawes of England, His Majesties most gracious Declarations, by innumerable, great and important records of this Kingdome, by the Civil Law, History, polity, morality, and common reason, and all objections undeniably refuted. As it was inclosed in a letter to a friend. By a true lover of his King and countrey, and sufferer for loyalty.

      [London] Printed in the year, 1675. 4to., (8) + 56pp., many pages misnumbered as always, a large uncut copy in old, perhaps original, wrappers, the wrappers rather soiled and with edge tears, however, otherwise in fine state of preservation. Wing T.3337. Goldsmiths 2129. Kress 1392. Hollander 216. Massie 935. Amex 466. An attack on the Exchequer which the author accuses of reneging on its repayment of war loans provided by City bankers, goldsmiths and merchants. Turner sets out to prove its illegality both in law and 'common reason'. He is careful not to lay any blame on the King ('his Royal Bowels yerne with Compassion towards us'), but cannot help but conclude that 'it is not impossible to designe a course how to pay off this debt of the bankers'. First published in 1674, the decision in this case gave creditors of the Crown the right to petition the Barons of the Exchequer for breach of contract. This definition of such a legal contract was something of a turning point in the fiscal relationship between sovereign and subject.

      frontispice, [24]-215-[12] A Paris, chez Lambert Roulland, 1675, in-12, frontispice, [24]-215-[12] pages, [14] feuillets non chiffrés comprenant chacun une gravure en tête, veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs et orné, tranches dorées sur marbrure, roulette sur les coupes, Première édition française du premier ouvrage de Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712), ornée d'un frontispice allégorique, de 8 bandeaux gravés en tête des chapitres et de 14 planches hors texte comprenant chacune une gravure et un texte explicatif. 2 planches contiennent plusieurs figures : l'une les n° 3, 4, 5 et 14 ; l'autre les n° 6, 7, 9 et 11 ; elles sont, de sorte, répétées chaque fois que nécessaire, en regard du commentaire donné pour chacune des figures. L'Anatomy of Vegetables Begun fut publiée pour la première fois à Londres en 1672 ; cette traduction française, rare, fut effectuée avec l'aide de l'auteur.

Les 3 ouvrages seront réunis en un seul volume en 1682 (The Anatomy of Plants).

        Serensissimus Princeps ac Dominus, Dominus Ernestus dux Saxoniae, Juliae, Cliviae et Montium, Landgravius Thuringiae, Marchio Misniae,

      Artist: ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: 1675 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Tear on the right side perfectly restored; size in cm : 55 x 42,5 - description: Ernest I, called Ernest the Pious (Altenburg, 25 December 1601 ? Schloss Friedenstein, Gotha, 26 March 1675), was a duke of Saxe-Gotha and Saxe-Altenburg. The duchies were later merged into Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg.He was the ninth but sixth surviving son of John II, Duke of Saxe-Weimar, and Dorothea Maria of Anhalt. His mother was a granddaughter of Christoph, Duke of Württemberg, and great-granddaughter of Ulrich, Duke of Württemberg.Left an orphan early in life (his father died in 1605 and his mother in 1617), he was brought up in a strict manner, and was gifted and precocious but not physically strong. He soon showed traits of the piety of the time. As ruler, by his character and governmental ability as well as by personal attention to matters of state, he introduced a golden age for his subjects after the ravages of the Thirty Years' War. By wise economy, which did not exclude fitting generosity or display on proper occasions, he freed his land from debt, left at his death a considerable sum in the treasury, and reduced taxation. Public security and an incorruptible and efficient judiciary received much of his attention, and his regulations served as models for other states.His laws were not conceived in the spirit of modern ideas about individual liberty; they forbade secret betrothals, tried to regulate dress, and extended even to the stable, kitchen, and cellar. Nevertheless his regulations promoted agriculture, commerce, learning, and art. His palace of Friedenstein in Gotha was rebuilt, and its collections owe their origin to Ernest; the library became one of the largest in Germany. Churches were built and by his Schulmethodus of 1642 Ernest became the father of the present grammar-school. It was a popular saying that his peasants were better instructed than the townsmen and nobles elsewhere, and at his death, it was said, no one in his land was unable to read and write. He made the gymnasium in Gotha a model school which attracted pupils not only from all German lands, but from Sweden, Russia, Poland, and Hungary. In like manner he fostered the University of Jena, increasing its funds and regulating its studies, with too much emphasis on the religious side.Jacob von Sandrart (3 May 1630, Frankfurt am Main - 15 August 1708, Nuremberg) was a German engraver primarily active in Nuremberg.Sandrart was a very prolific artist; over 400 engravings from his hand are extant. He was best known as a portraitist of prominent contemporary citizens of Nuremberg, as an engraver of maps, and as an illustrator of the literary works of Nuremberg writers, especially Sigmund von Birken. Today Sandrart is best remembered as the founder and first director of the Nuremberg Academy of Fine Arts (est. 1662).

        Manuscript pharmacopeia in Latin and Dutch].[Dordrecht?, ca. 1675]. 8vo. Manuscript in dark brown ink on a single stock of laid paper, in a legible Latin hand with some gothic elements. With the name Hendrik vander Pijpen written on the paste-down, in the same hand as the text of the manuscript. The double-page openings numbered (each with a single number in both upper corners). Contemporary vellum, two brass fastenings (one anchor plate broken, with the clasp present but detached).

      - Author not in Hirsch; Schelenz; Stoeder; Vandewiele; Wittop Koning. Dutch manuscript pharmacopoeia in Latin and Dutch from ca. 1675 by Hendrik vander Pijpen, with about 900 medicinal recipes. Vander Pijpen appears to be a Dordrecht name, with several Hendriks in the family, including a lumber or timber merchant (1635-1676). The author must have been a practicing pharmacologist and physician, for he occasionally refers to recipes of his own and also relates his experiences of the effects of certain medicines on his patients. At least twice he refers to Dutch colleagues, making the manuscript a primary source for unknown or little-known figures in the trade: Ary Jansen vande Vaerde, appointed poxmaster of the city Delft in 1660 and the pharmacologist Mr. Wilm van Liewaerde.The book opens with dictionaries of pharmaceutical symbols and abbreviations, symbols and abbreviations of measurements and pharmacological terms (especially the Dutch meaning of Latin terms). The pharmacopoeia gives the ingredients and recipes primarily in Latin, while most of the detailed explanations of the effects and the administering of medication are in Dutch. The first part is alphabetical by the name of the medicine, followed with composite medicines.Very well preserved manuscript, with only a few occasional spots and in very good condition. The binding has a couple tiny smudges and one of the clasps is detached, otherwise also very good. An extensive Dutch manuscript pharmacopoeia with about 900 recipes, probably compiled in Dordrecht ca. 1675.

Old ink annotations in margins, one plate with paper reinforcement, one with a small tear. Worn contemporary full calf, gilt spine with raised bands and black label, parly loose in hinges. Ink notes on front fly leaves. Bookseller label from Poul Budy, Berlin. From the library of Nils Fries, with his bookplate. Volbracht 2050. Uellner 1735. Nissen 1892. Hunt library 341. First edition, complete with the famous frontispiece showing a mushroom marketplace. One of the earliest works entirly devoted to fungi, only preceded by "Rariorum plantarum historia" by Carolus Clusius (Jules-Charles l'Éscluse) in 1601, and the first with engraved illustrations (Ainsworth p.48). The folding engr. portrait depicts the dedicatee, the Antwerp city physician Johannes van Buyten, and is engraved by Arn. van Westerhout after Carl. E. Biset. A portrait of the author is incorporated in the frontispiece. Franciscus van Sterbeeck (1630-93) was a Flemish priest, botanist and mycologist who lived most of his life in Antwerpen. He devoted his life to botany, and the rare plants in his botanical garden were highly admired. Carolus Clusius had prepared a unique collection of watercolour illustrations of fungi (le Code de l'Éscluse) for his book in 1601, but the publisher mislaid them and inferior woodcuts were used instead. The "Code" was later presented to van Sterbeeck, who made much use of them in the present work, even though he claimed to have based all his illustrations for "Theatrum fungorum" on direct observation from nature. Much new material was included in the text and special attention was given to toadstools, which are treated in detail with descriptions of their natural history as well as their gastronomic and medical value. A second edition was published in 1712.
