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.

      Amsterdam: Abraham Wolfgang, 1675. <p>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 <em>Ephemeri Vita</em> 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work, on the may-fly, Swammerdam gave the first complete account of metamorphosis … much in his descriptions was not superseded before the nineteenth century … on a visit to Paris he repeated before a meeting at Thévenot’s house his dissection of the may-fly, and an offer was made to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, <em>From Galileo to Newton</em>, pp. 168-9). In 1669 Swammerdam had published his <em>Historia insectorum generalis, </em>which contained many beautiful illustrations of insects, but did not attempt to describe their minute anatomy. “A comparison of his investigations contained in <em>Historia Insectorum Generalis </em>(1669) and those that appeared in his next major published work, on the mayfly (<em>Ephemeri Vita</em>, 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.</p> <p>“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).</p> <p>“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 <em>Ephemeri Vita </em>… 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)<em>.</em></p> <p>“Swammerdam was one among the many who marveled over imaginings of minute anatomies, but when he wrote the <em>Historia </em>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.</p> <p>“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 <em>Historia</em> to suggest that Swammerdam as yet even contemplated a general, systematic program of insect dissection with or without the aid of a lens …</p> <p>“The <em>Historia insectorum generalis</em> was in press when Swammerdam in 1669 received a copy of Malpighi’s <em>Dissertatio epistolica de bombyce</em>, 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.</p> <p>“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.</p> <p>“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 <em>De Bombyce</em>). 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, <em>The Microscope in the Dutch Republic</em>: <em>The Shaping of Discovery</em>, pp. 111-113).</p> <p>“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 <em>Ephemeri Vita, </em>dated 12 July 1675, he wrote,</p> <p>“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.”</p> <p>“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.”</p> <p>“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 <em>Ephemeri Vita, </em>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).</p> <p>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:</p> <p>“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.”</p> <p>“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.</p> <p>“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).</p> <p>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 <em>Bybel der Natuure</em> (1737-8). The anatomical section of the present work is included in the <em>Bybel.</em></p> <p>The <em>Ephemeri vita</em> was translated into English in 1681 under the title <em>Ephemeri vita</em>: <em>or the Natural History and Anatomy of the Ephemeron, A Fly that Lives but Five Hours</em>, and edited by Edward Tyson, famous for his work on “the missing link”, entitled <em>Orang-Outang, sive homo Sylvestris</em>:<em> or the Anatomy of a Pygmie compared with that of a Monkey, an Ape and a man </em>(1699). This translation is also rare (three copies listed on ABPC/RBH).</p> <p>Cobb, ‘Malpighi, Swammerdam and the Colourful Silkworm: Replication and Visual Representation in Early Modern Science,’ <em>Annals of Science</em> 59 (2002), 111-147; Cole, <em>A History of Comparative Anatomy</em>, 278-285; Fournier, ‘The Book of Nature: Jan Swammerdam’s Microscopical Investigations,’ <em>Tractrix</em> 2 (1990), 1-24; Norman 2036 (for the English translation of 1681, this edition not in Norman); Singer, <em>Short History of Biology</em>, 160-2; Waller 11967.</p> 8vo (156 x 100 mm), pp. [xxxii], 422, [8], with eight engraved plates (two folding).

Édition originale fort rare. Cioranescu 12687. Selon Brunet (I-22) cet ouvrage singulier est attribué par les uns à Jacques Boileau, le frère de Nicolas Boileau, et par d'autres à un Sr de Neuilly, curé de Beauvais. L'histoire, et Barbier en tête, retient Jacques Boileau comme son auteur. Sujet troublant soulevé par "un gentilhomme français, qui passant par la Flandre, et voyant que la plupart des femmes y ont la gorge et les épaules nues,..., témoigna qu'il était fort scandalisé de cette coutume,...". L'ouvrage est divisé en deux parties. La 1ere : Que les nuditez de la gorge et des épaules sont blamables et nuisibles. La 2e : Des vaines excuses des femmes qui ont la gorge et les épaules nues.

        Mappe- Monde- dresse pour l edude de la geographie.

      Artist: L Isle Guillaume De (- 1726) Paris; issued in: Paris ; date: 1778 1675 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: original colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 28 x 31 - description: Map shows the total world in two hemispheres carried of two gods, map with a beautyfull border - Vita of the artist: Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Legatura recente in piena pergamena floscia. Segni di tarlo perlopiù marginali alle prime due ed ultime 4 carte, alcune macchiette d'inchiostro ai margini ed uno strappo ricongiunto (senza alcuna perdita) alla c. 35/36. Due delle carte dell'indice risultano inoltre riprese a penna da mano coeva sul medesimo tipo di carta che compone il volume. Collazione conforme a quella dettagliatamente data dal Lozzi ed agli altri esemplari paragonati. Prima edizione, assai rara, della quale è "difficile trovare esemplari non difettosi" (Lozzi). In alcuni esemplari trovasi in fine una carta fuori segnatura con l' "Avvertimento dello stampatore ai Lettori", carta della quale non è fatta menzione in Lozzi cit. Dati i molti errori di paginazione presenti nel libro, è possibile che ad un certo punto ed in un certo numero di esemplari il tipografo abbia sentito il bisogno di aggiungere un foglio con l'Avvertimento.

        Frontispiece for Zee Karten

      1675 - DE WIT, Frederick. Frontispiece of "Atlas" for Zee Karten. [Amsterdam, Frederick De Wit, 1675]. Folio sheet measuring 10-1/2 by 18-1/2 inches, handsomely framed; entire piece measures 19 by 27 inches. $2500.Magnificent hand-colored engraving of the "Titano"&#157; Atlas (with the mountain at his feet and Africa pictured in the eastern hemisphere), used by famed Amsterdam map-maker Frederick De Wit as the frontispiece to his nautical atlas, Zee Karten (1675).In this frontispiece for Frederick de Wit's nautical atlas entitled Zee Karten (1675), the "Titano"&#157; Atlas is correctly represented in the act of supporting the sky. The legend was subsequently distorted by describing Atlas as carrying the terrestrial world on his shoulders. Herodotus was the first to liken Atlas to Titano, a mountain in Libya, which can be seen in this depiction at Atlas' feet. De Wit was one of the most prominent and successful 17th-century Dutch engravers and publishers, whose reputation as a maker of fine maps and atlases was unparalleled in his time (see Koeman, 88). Tooley, 36. See Shirley 444. A wonderful 17th-century image by the famous Amsterdam map-maker.

        De Censuris, Italy, c1675.

      1675 - Seventeenth-Century Italian Manuscript on Censorship and Excommunication [Manuscript]. De Censuris [Spine Title]. [Italy, c.1675]. [500] pp. Quarto (7-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary limp vellum with thong ties, early calligraphic title to spine. Moderate soiling and a few minor stains, two thongs lacking, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns. Light toning to text, occasional light foxing. Text in fine neat hand to rectos and versos of most leaves, notes to margins of first 80 leaves in later hand. * This canon-law manuscript on censure (censura), excommunication (scomunica), suspension (sospensione) and irregularities (irregolarita) was probably compiled around 1675. The careful organization and absence of corrections suggests this is probably a fair copy of university lecture notes. The marginalia indicates its later use by another reader.

        Historia De Rebus In Gallia Gestis Ab Alexandro Farnesio Parmae Et Placentiae Duce III. Supremo Belgii Praefecto

      s.l. [Nuremberg?]: Sartorius, n.d. [1675]. Small 4to (21 cm x 17 cm) bound in full alum-tawed deerskin, now faded to a pleasant cream color, profusely gilt to an all-over Baroque motif, a.e.g. (worn along corners and extremities, spine significantly so, but the covers are attractive and the binding perfectly strong; endpapers removed; front pastedown with evidence of abrasion / removal). Pagination: (3) +537 pages + Index (repair to one leaf; some minor foxing as is true in all copies). Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece + 5 folding engraved plates (separation along fold on one plate). A sound and complete copy with faults, priced correctly. A rare German Baroque binding made of alum-tawed leather, probably deerskin, richly gilt. This is Dondini's account of the French military victories of Alexander Farnese (1545-1592), Duke of Parma and Piacenza, superbly illustrated with a fine engraved frontispiece of Farnese and 5 folding plates of battle scenes of high quality. Farnese was the celebrated general of Philip II of Spain, whose brilliant strategies allowed him to reconquer the southern Netherlands. In 1590 he triumphed over the Huguenots to the extent that they were forced to relinquish their sieges of Paris and Corbeil; two years later he repeated his triumphs at Rouen. The plates were engraved by Jacob Christoph Sartorius (1674-1737) after designs by Johann Azelt (b. 1654) and and Sigmund Gabriel Hipschmann (b. 1639). They document battle scenes at Paris and Corbeil, and also of the Spanish armies crossing the Seine near Dieppe. Guglielmo Dondini (1606-1678) was a Jesuit historian who in the present work sought to write a continuation of Strata's "War of Flanders." He dedicated the book to Alexander Farnese's grandson Ranuccio II. The use of alum-tawed leather was characteristic of luxury South German and especially Austrian Baroque bindings. Alum tawed skins are prepared in an alkaline solution, whereas leathers are processed with acidic tannins. Often times these alum tawed skins were dyed with cochineal making them pink toned, as can be seen here on the lower turn-in inside the front cover. The text was first printed in Rome in 1673; the Regensburg Staatliche Bibliothek pronounces this undated edition as Roman also, but according to Backer-Sommervogel (III, p. 137) it was printed at Nuremburg, an assertion with which we strongly agree based on the typography, paper stock, and binding.

        Graecia Antiquae Tabula Nova

      Artist: L Isle Guillaume De (- 1726) Paris; issued in: Paris ; date: 1725 1675 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 48 x 63 - description: Map with the Peleponnese, Attica, Crete and the surrounding islands - Vita of the artist: Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
