Lemery's clear and entertaining presentation of chemistry in corpuscular-mechanist terms contributed to the works overwhelming popularity. It went through numerous editions, and was translated into all the major European languages..

[Triangular Trade]: [Charles II]:
London. 1675.. Broadside, 22 x 14 1/2 inches, printed on two sheets. Old fold lines. Repaired with tissue on verso along vertical fold. A few other small tears or tissue repairs. Very good. A rare broadside, announcing the decree of the English government that all foreign goods destined for British colonies must first pass through England, a policy of mercantilism later termed the "triangle trade." "This program permitted the profits from colonial trade and commerce to center in England, promoted British shipping, and enabled the British government to support itself by taxing this trade as it flowed through England" (DAH III:374). The English government began its mercantilist policies under the Commonwealth government, in a series of "navigation acts" which regulated English trade. The first Navigation Act, passed in 1651, targeted Dutch commerce. It stipulated that only English ships could carry freight into English territories, and that if a ship was not English, then it could only carry goods from the country from whence it hailed - i.e., Dutch ships could only import Dutch goods, etc. Further Acts passed in 1660 and 1663, under the Restoration government of Charles II, isolated trade even further, mandating that British colonial goods only be imported to England and forbidding English trade on anything other than English vessels. This policy of trade, which was continued for the next two hundred years, marked the ascent of British colonial mercantilism and planted the seeds of discontent which resulted in the American Revolution one hundred years later.

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.

Contemporary vellum, old handwritten title on spine. Scarce first edition, a reissue appeared 1712. "First edition of the first separate general work on fungi, describing edible and poisonous varieties. L'Escluse has done a study called 'Fungorum in Pannonis Observatorum Historia' which was first published as part of his 'Rariorum Plantarum Historia', 1601. However, according to Nissen, L'Escluse's original manuscript for this treatise with its eighty-seven original drawings had been lost by the publisher, so they had to use other illustrations for the 1611 edition, and these were quite inaccurate. Afterwards the lost manuscript reappeared and Sterbeeck used it as a basis for his work, adding much new material of his own" (Hunt 341). "Frans van Sterbeeck, a Flemish priest of noble extraction, was born and died in Antwerp where he lived for the greater part of his life. During the eight years following his ordination in 1655, while suffering from a chronic illness, he returned his attention to botany, with particular reference to fungi and soon became a recognized expert. He was on friendly terms with other Flemish botanists and in May 1663 was visited by John Ray who admired the rare plants in van Sterbeeck's garden. It was in 1672 that Adriaan David, an Antwerp pharmacist and amateur botanist (he contributed a sonnet to the collection of adulatory tributes to the author which prefaces the 'Theatrum fungorum'), … [Click Below for Full Description]

The vase is filled with double Pomegranate blossom, Passion flower, Auricula, Tulip, Iris, Garden Nasturtium, Pheasant Eye, Hyacinth, Fritillary, Rosa Mundi, Carnation and Anemone. Two beetles revive the scene. The flower species all occur in Merian's Flower Books which she produced between 1675 and 1679, when she also made some flower bouquets.

The bouquet is in a more lively and natural style than in her former period. Signed works by Maria Sibylla Merian are rare.

Elegante antiporta allegorica a carattere mitologico; frontespizio con titolo in rosso e nero e stemma cardinalizio; 16 pagine non numerate; 16 pagine non numerate, 1 ritratto dell'Autore inciso all'acquaforte fuori testo - 68 pagine mal numerate XXXX - 738 pagine mal numerate con indicazione finale 728 e compresa 1 carta bianca - 22 carte non numerate di indici) . Testo in lingua italiana. Alcuni capilettera decorati a racemi e abitati, nonché fregi tipografici a silografia. L'opera, in edizione originale, definita assai rara dal Lozzi, è una vasta e pregevole storia della città di Faenza. Tonduzzi, sacerdote faentino, giunse con la sua narrazione fino al 1440 circa, e lasciò il testo incompiuto. Dopo la sua morte, Pietro Maria Cavina (come indica Lozzi citando le proprie fonti) continuò il libro fino a trattare dell'anno 1600 e curò la pubblicazione (benché tale merito vada nel frontespizio a Girolamo Minacci). Cavina è, inoltre, l'autore della vita di Tonduzzi premessa alle Historie, e compresa nelle pagine con numerazione romana. Esemplare dalla legatura in perfette condizioni, completo sia dell'antiporta figurata che del ritratto spesso mancanti, molto raro a trovarsi in queste buone condizioni; qualche macchiolina al frontespizio; lieve, ampia gora da pagina I a pagina VIII; alcune pagine con uniformi, lievi, ossidazioni della carta, più marcata a poche di esse.

All his works reflect a high professional standard.

DE JONGHE, CLEMENDT.
Amsterdam, 1675 circa. Incisione in rame, b/n, cm 39, 8 x 51,0 (alla battuta della lastra), 40 x 52 (il foglio), titolo entro festone in alto al centro, due stemmi nobiliari in alto (uno a ds. e uno a sn), legenda in tutta la parte bassa. Non diversamente da quanto era accaduto per altre vedute, il prototipo del Van de Velde viene abbastanza presto imitato e divulgato, in formato ridotto. Ancora una volta, la citt? in cui ha luogo la riedizione ? Amsterdam e l'A. ? il poco noto Clemendt de Ionghe, ricordato anche come Clement de Conghe (1624 - 1677). Nella riduzione operata dal de Conghe, di 1 /42 ca. di lunghezza, si conserva una certa cura dei dettagli, con le stesse aberrazioni prospettiche ed esagerazioni dimensionali dei primi piani. L'avere operato una riduzione cos? forte su di una veduta con una bassa linea di orizzonte, costringe l'incisore, per esigenze di equilibrio compositivo, a disporre una fascia di cielo alta almeno due terzi dell'intero campo topografico. Interessante ? la legenda sottostante, con una composizione in quattro distici, ripetuta in tre lingue il cui originale sembra il testo in fiammingo - a giudicare dalla serrata ricorrenza delle rime - tuttavia ben tradotto in francese ma piuttosto maccheronico e oscuro in latino. Il testo celebra l'origine cumana della citt? e la ricchezza d'acqua e di porti. Ma: " La fortune est jalouse, et regrette mon bien / Ie suis chef d'Italie, et ne m'oblige a rien", ? il tipico motivo locale, vivo nel seicento e ancora un secolo dopo, di una Napoli sfortunata ma altera.
