        La vraye science de la pourtraicture descrite et demontrée ... Representant par une facile instruction plusieurs plans & figures de toutes les parties separées du corps humain: ensemble les figures entieres, tant d'hommes que femmes & de petits enfans, veuës de front, de fil, & de dos, avec les proportions, mesures & dimensions dícelles: et certaines regles pour racourcir par art toutes lesdites figures.Paris, Guillaume Le Bé III, 1676. Oblong 4to. With a woodcut border on half-title and 36 full-page woodcut illustrations. Later limp vellum.

      Choulant, 354; Didot, Cousin, p. 118-124; Vagnetti EIIb26. 1676 edition of a celebrated drawing book, written by Jean Cousin the younger (ca. 1522-1595), intended for the use of all kinds of draughtsmen and artists, including painters, sculptors, architects, goldsmiths, embroiderers and cabinetmakers. The woodcuts show anatomical figures or body parts, with notes on the proper perspectives and proportions, influenced by the theories of Vitruvius. Most sources cite a 1571 4to edition as the first (USTC noting “no known surviving copy”), while some note a 1560 folio edition, but the latter may merely be inferred from an advertisement for Jean Cousin the younger's forthcoming Livre de pourtraicture in a 1560 Livre de Perspective, an influential work by his father, the famous painter Jean Cousin the elder (ca. 1490-1560).With a restoration to half-title and some marginal restorations throughout. Very slightly browned and with some occasional small spots. In good condition.

        Zootomiae seu anatomes variorum animalium pars prima (all publ.).

      - Amsterdam, Abraham Wolfgang, 1676, Kl.8°, Mit gest. Titel (1677), (8), pp.19-87 (recte 79 pp.), 292, (4) pp., 18 ganzseitigen Kupfertafeln im Text, 53 tlw. gefalt. Kupfern, Pergamennteinband im Stil der Zeit; feines Exemplar; minmal fleckig. "Second extended edition with new engraved and printed title in 1676, but pp.1-288, which include the comparative anatomy, are identical in both editions!" Cole, p.150 - - "The first comprehensive manual of comparative anatomy based on the original and literary researches of a working anatomist" (Cole). Blaes anticipated Cowper in finding the Cowper's glands, which he illustrated in his plate of the genitalia and os penis of the rat. The 85 pages devoted to the anatomy of the dog was the first comprehensive and original treatise on a vertebrate since Ruini" on the horse (1598. Cf. Garrison & Morton No.560 (1681 Ed.) - - Content: Hominis ; Canis ; Simiae ; Felis zibets ; Felis domesticae ; Vulpis ; Gliris ; Testudinis terrestir ; Anatis ; Columbae ; Vituli ; Agni ; Cuniculi ; Porci. - - Gerard Blaes or Blasius, who died in 1692 according to Nuyens, the date of his birth being unknown, published three works on comparative anatomy under his own name in 1673,1 1674 and 1681. The anonymous Observationes of the Amsterdam anatomists printed in 1667 and 1673 were partly contributed by Blasius, and some of them are claimed by him in his later publications. The first two of the works just mentioned record his own researches, but the last is largely a compilation or textbook, based on some ninety authorities and illustrated by sixty useful plates. It includes also his own results more or less revised, abbreviated or extended. In the 1673 volume Blasius describes the anatomy of the following fourteen types : tortoise, duck, pigeon, ox, sheep, pig, dog, cat, civet-cat, fox, rat, rabbit, hare and monkey. In the following year he revises seven of his previous descriptions, and omits seven, but adds new ones on the snake, heron, hedgehog, and the spinal cord and nerves of the horse. In the textbook all the preceding memoirs, except those on the monkey, cat, pig and horse, reappear with certain modifications, and a description of the dissection of a male tiger undertaken in 1677 is also printed, and for the first time. His most detailed investigations were confined to the dog, civet-cat, hedgehog, heron, tortoise and snake. - - In the 1681 treatise 119 types are selected for treatment, and as many as seventy-eight of them are represented in the illustrations. The number 119 is made up as follows: MOLLUSCA, 2; CRUSTACEA, 2; INSECTA, 9; ARACHNIDA, .1; PISCES, 29 ; AMPHIBIA, 3 ; REPTILIA, 7 ; AVES, 27 ; MAMMALIA, 39. - - Blasius is particularly interested in embryology, and deals with the foetal membranes and development of ruminants, rabbit, cat, horse and the chick. The illustrated monograph on the chick is a very careful and thorough piece of compilation, and may be recommended as a competent exposition of contemporary embryology. It is evident that the textbook was planned on a generous scale, and may be accepted as the first comprehensive manual of comparative anatomy based on the original and literary researches of a working' anatomist. It is thus a valuable introduction to the history of zootomy, since most of the relevant literature published up to that time is skilfully handled by one of the best known of its exponents. On the other hand the student must not expect to find in this work a review of comparative anatomy as it is understood to-day, or even as it was understood by the more philosophical workers of the period. In all the writings of Blasius we search in vain for any discussion or integration of the data which have been so laboriously assembled. The manual especially is a catalogue of anatomical observations, and never reaches a higher level than the inanimate records of the pure descriptive anatomist, consisting as it does of a series of independent descriptions of animal types .

      Cambridge, John Hayes for George Sawbridge, 1676. Folio. Engraved Frontispiece, Titlepage in red and black, [VIII] 8, 1030, 2, 20 pages / Prosopographia:[VI], 91,[XXXVI] pages. Original 18th century leather-binding with five raised bands and the original spinelabel. The binding with stronger signs of wear but firm and original. Interior in very good condition with only very mild signs of foxing. Very Rare ! Sir Thomas North (1535–1604) was an English justice of the peace, military officer and translator. His translation into English of Plutarch's Parallel Lives is notable for being a source text used by William Shakespeare for several of his plays. The first edition of his translation of Plutarch, from the French of Jacques Amyot, appeared in 1579. The first edition was dedicated to Queen Elizabeth, and was followed by another edition in 1595, containing fresh Lives. A third edition of his Plutarch was published, in 1603, with more translated Parallel Lives, and a supplement of other translated biographies.nAccording to the Encyclopaedia Britannica Eleventh Edition, " it is almost impossible to overestimate the influence of North's vigorous English on contemporary writers, and some critics have called him the first master of English prose."nThe Lives translation formed the source from which Shakespeare drew the materials for his Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra. It is in the last-named play that he follows the Lives most closely, whole speeches being taken directly from North.

Early in 1676, Goodall published the present book which "is a reply to an attack on the college by Adrian Hyberts, and proves three points: that the College of Physicians was legally established, that it exercised its rights justly, and that it had advanced medical learning in England.

        La Géométrie Françoise ou la pratique méquanique de cette Science rendue Intelligible à toutes conditions par ces quatre parties de Longimétrie, Planimétrie, Stréométrie et Altimétrie

      S.l, 1676. n.d. [circa 1676], n.d. [circa 1676], in-8, 2 parties en un volume , titre gravé, (20), 103, (3) pages et 1 planche puis 24 pages, vélin souple de l'époque, 1 planche gravée h.t. et 2 planches gravées à pleine page; 6 belles vignettes gravées sur cuivre composées des attributs des sciences géométriques et certaines comportant les chiffres "AMDG". Première édition, fort rare, avec second état de la page de titre gravée et des vignettes. Après un avis aux lecteurs et des considérations générales sur la géométrie, l'auteur prend le soin d'introduire son traité par une "table des noms propres uzitez en l'exercice pratique de la Géométrie". Suivent les définitions des figures, puis les chapitres de la planimétrie (mesures de l'arpentage), de la longimétrie (longueurs et largeurs des objets), de la stéréométrie (mesure des corps solides), de l'altimétrie (mesure des volumes à l'usage des trois architectures : civile, navale et militaire). L'ouvrage se termine par un chapitre signé A.M.D.G, intitulé : "La clef de l'Arithmétique, ou la science des nombres pour résoudre toutes les questions proposées, pour les opérations de la Géométrie françoise". Il s'agit d'un second état de l'impression originale de 1676 comme l'indique le cartouche gratté directement sur le cuivre de la page de titre, les différences de vignettes avec l'exemplaire de la BnF (V-18817), et une correction à la page 77 où un "u" final a été ajouté à la première ligne du titre de départ de la section sur l'altimétrie. (Pour des comparaisons d'exemplaire, consulter Gallica et le Catalogue de la collection d'un "French Gentleman" [M. Arnaud de Vitry], Sotheby's, 1998, n°25 - même indication que le cat. BM, 17e C, n°444). La bibliothèque de l'Arsenal conserve un exemplaire portant la même variante au titre. D'après la page de titre, le Sieur Jean de Beaulieu Brossard était : "ci devant Ingénieur, Professeur aux Sciences civiles et militaires en la marine pour le service de Sa Majesté très Chrétienne sous les ordres de feu Monseigneur l'Admiral duc de Beaufort." Il s'agit surement de ce Sébastien de Pontault, sieur de Beaulieu, premier ingénieur du roi, "regardé comme le créateur de la topographie militaire sous Louis XIV" (Michaud, III, 391) ; dans la Marine, il était sous les ordres du duc de Beaufort, petit-fils d'Henri IV qui avait hérité de la valeur de son grand-père, mais qui se conduisait comme un soudard.

        Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans

      1676. PLUTARCH. The Lives Of The Noble Grecians and RomansÂ… BOUND WITH: Prosopographia: Or, Some Select Pourtraitures and Lives of Ancient and Modern Illustrious Personages. Cambridge: Printed by John Hayes, 1676. Thick folio, modern full tan speckled calf, raised bands, brown morocco spine labels. $2500.Expanded and highly desirable sixth edition of the first English translation of PlutarchÂ’s Lives, one of the most influential works of the Elizabethan era and a major Shakespeare source. With 25 “Eminent Persons of Ancient and latter times” by Thevet—five of which are new to this edition, including Christopher Columbus and Hernando Cortéz.""The Lives are works of great learning and research, and Plutarch is careful to quote his authorities, whose number indicates a formidable amount of readingÂ… Early translated, by Amyot into French and by North into English, the influence of Plutarch's method has been constantly manifest in the biographies of the modern great and in the authors who have been inspired by it. Shakespeare relied almost exclusively on Plutarch for the historical background of ancient Rome"" (PMM 48). ""North dedicated the book to Queen Elizabeth, and it was one of the most popular of her day. It is written throughout in admirably vivid and robust prose. But it is as Shakespeare's storehouse of classical learning that it presents itself in its most interesting aspect. To it (it is not too much to say) we owe the existence of the plays of Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra, while A Midsummer Night's Dream, Pericles and Timon of Athens are all indebted to it"" (DNB). North's translation, the first into English, was published in 1579. This copy of the sixth edition bound with André Thevet's Prosopographia (first published 1584; his last published work), written in imitation of Plutarch's work, with numerous biographies of later classical, medieval and even contemporary American personages; the 25 biographies and portraits include Cortez, Columbus and Gutenberg. George Gerbier d'Ouvilly's Thevet first appeared with North's Plutarch in 1657, although the last five biographies (including Cortez and Columbus) first appeared in this edition. Engraved allegorical frontispiece, featuring portrait of Plutarch, with explanation on facing page. Title page of Lives printed in red and black. With woodcut medallion portraits within ornamental borders throughout Plutarch's Lives and copper-engraved portraits throughout Thevet's additional Lives. Decorative woodcut initials and headpieces throughout. With extensive indexes. Plutarch: Wing P2634; Brueggemann, 319-20; Moss II:514; see PMM 48. Thevet: Wing T888A. Owner ink signature; evidence of page tipped to front free endpaper.Text clean. Closed tear to one leaf (B6), affecting text but without loss. Attractive binding fine.

Unito a: Caspari Bartholini De inauribus veterum syntagma. Accedit mantissa ex Thomae Bartholini Miscellaneis medicis de annulis narium.

      Sumptibus Henrici Wetstenii,, Amstelodami, 1676 - In 12° (13,1×7,4 cm); tre tomi in un volume: (16), 114, (14) pp. e una c. di tav. più volte ripiegata (rilegato nella seconda parte), 40 pp., (16), 148, (2), 17, (9) pp. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Bellissima antiporta figurata alla prima opera. Testatine, finalini ed iniziali xilografiche. Prima edizione completa, un’edizione precedente dove era presente solo il primo volume, uscì nel 1647 e priva anche di parte delle illustrazioni. Bartholin Thomas e Ole Worm sono stati due dei medici e professori più famosi della Danimarca del seicento dando grandi contributi alla medicina mondiale. Bartholin in particolare portò avanti le ricerche di Harvey sulla circolazione sanguigna e diventando uno dei pionieri dell’analisi del sistema linfatico. Ma unire i due grandi studiosi era la passione per la storia e l’archeologia mettendo insieme due delle più ampie ed interessanti collezioni di reperti archeologici e curiosità d’Europa. L’opera qui presentata, completa di tutte le sue parti, è uno dei più importanti repertori sui braccialetti, gioielli, monili antichi pubblicati fino a quel momento. Ricchissimo di immagini, il volume descrive dettagliatamente diversi gioielli antichi nella loro forma, materiale, utilizzo e valore rituale. Per i numerosi riferimenti ai simboli segreti di alcuni gioielli l’opera è citata anche nella Biblioteca Esoterica n. 233 "est question dans cet ouvrage non seulement de la licorne, mais aussi d’animaux cornus et de monstres humains, par exemple de François Trouillet qui vivait aux environs de 1599 et avait au milieu du front une véritable corne de bélier". Infatti Worm fu uno dei principali sostenitori del fatto che i corni venduti come corni di Unicorno fossero in verità corni di Narvalo. Curioso però notare che Worm fece esperimenti per testare le qualità magiche curative dei corni arrivando a concludere che essi avevano la capacità di combattere gli avvelenamenti se ingeritisbriciolati. Esemplare i ottime condizioni di conservazione. A very goog copy. Rif. Bibl.: Bibl. Danica II:446 (third edition). – Inavribus Bibl. Danica II:446 (second edition). – Antiquitatum Bibl.

        Surrey Described and Divided into Hundreds.

      SPEED, John. Surrey Described and Divided into Hundreds. Original copper engraved map with skillfull later hand colouring from Speed's The Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britaine published by Bassett and Chiswell. With attractive inset views of the long-since destroyed Richmond and Nonsuch Palaces, compass rose, scale of miles, coats of arms and decorative strapwork. 1676. 380 x 510 mm. John Speed (1552-1629) is arguably the most famous of all the British cartographers. His Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britaine, first published in 1611, was the first atlas to cover all of Great Britian whilst his later work of 1627, Prospect Of The Most Famous Parts Of The World was the first world atlas to be published by an Englishman. In his county maps Speed updated the work of Saxton and Norden adding his own innovations such as inset town plans and views of local landmarks resulting in maps that were not only the most accurate and informative of the day but also the most decorative. A lovely example in fine condition. £1600
