        1677 Origen Against Celsus Early Christian Apology Greek Philokalia Spencer

      Cantabrigiae : Excudebat Joan. Hayes . : Impensis Guli. Morden bibliopolae, 1677, 1676. - 1677 Origen Against Celsus Early Christian Apology Greek Philokalia Spencer Origen was a 3rd-century Greek scholar and early Christian theologian. He was a prolific writer known for his biblical exegeses, philosophy, and sermons, and was one of the most influential figures in early Christian asceticism. (Finn, 100). Origen’s final treatise, ‘Philokalia : Contra Celsum’ or ‘Against Celsus,’ was a response to a literary attack on Christianity by an unknown pagan philosopher named Celsus. Saint Ambrose requested Origen write this book, a book that referenced Greek philosophers, poetry, and the Bible as a rational basis for holding steadfast to the Christian faith. (Heine, 127). Origen’s response is considered to be the ultimate apology of Christianity. ‘Philokalia’ is a collection of the original experts from Origen’s work. This 1677 edition was produced by Cambridge fellow William Spencer. Spencer made vast and significant improvements to the Latin translation originally made by Czech writer Sigismund Gelenius in 1557. Subsequent editions would continue to use the William Spencer translation and notes, even though not all editions are nearly as desirable or accurate.

With engraved allegorical title-page, engraved portrait, 4 half-page illustrations and 43 engraved plates (20 double-page) after the author. (12),328; 253,(23) pp.First edition. - Wouter Schouten (1638-1704) spent 7 years as a physician in the service of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in the East 1658-1665. His travel-account stayed very popular for a long time because of his ample and vivid descriptions of the countries, the different peoples and anything of note concerning the animals, plants, etc. of Java, Amboyna, Ternate, Celebes, Cape of Good Hope, coast of Coromandel, Malabar, Persia, Arabia, Ceylon, etc. With fine engraved views of Batavia, Ternate, Malacca, Makassar, Colombo, Cape of Good Hope etc. by C. Decker and J. Kip. Most of them are the first accurate topographical views of these towns. Because of the bad weather the fleet arrived on the return voyage in Bergen (Norway), where Schouten eyewitnessed the attack by the English in 1665. 'Schouten was an observant traveller who explored inland into the environs of nearly every port-of-call, sometimes by himself or with a small group of comrades. His narrative, full of anecdotes as well as information gleaned about countries he had not visited, became particularly popular with readers in the eighteenth century, when it was republished in no fewer than seven editions' (Howgego p.947). 'As a physician, Schouten had a more than ordinary interest in flora and fauna and in hygiene and living conditions' (Lach, Asia in the making III, p.955). - Occasionally some minor staining, margins of 1 plate restored with loss of very small part of the image, added a plate index in manuscript. - A good copy of the rare editio princeps.Tiele 990; Cat. NHSM I, p.174; Landwehr, VOC, 283; Mendelssohn II, p.279-80.

        Seder Ha-ha'arakhah (Order of Assessment) [TAX CODE FOR THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF MANTUA 1676-1679]

      Mantua (Mantova): Ha'Achim B'nei Rabbi Yehoshua M'Prushah (The Brothers, the Sons of Rabbi Yehoshua, from Perugia), 1676. First edition. Loose leaf. vg. Small quarto. Approximately 8.5x6.5". 12pp. Pages uncut. The Seder Ha-ha'arakhah (Order of Assessment) was the tax code for the Jewish community of Mantua. These tax regulations were first published in 1588 and continued to be published at various intervals until the end of the 18th century. During certain periods a new revised code was published while in other instances the standing regulations were simply renewed and extended.* This publication is for the years 1676-1679, during the rule of Duke Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga.The Order of Assessment deals in detail with the variety of subjects related to taxation. These include: types of taxable property and income as well as exceptions, minimum taxable amounts, and those based on various goods and types of businesses. As an example, bankers or moneylenders would be responsible for a different tax rate than an artisan or a merchant. The Jewish community would calculate the total tax liability of the community and extrapolate the various sub-rates for individuals as based on the above factors for the given period. Also discussed are how the tax assessors should be elected and operate. At any given time there were usually three assessors elected by the community to serve for terms of three years. It would be these individuals who would be responsible for formulating the updated tax code, with approval of the ruler. Text printed in Hebrew Rashi script.Pages with some minor creasing along the edges. Sporadic light water stains and/or smudges along the edges of some of the pages. Pages in very good condition overall. * "History of the Jews of Mantua" (Simonsohn)*Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga (1652 - 1708) was the only child of Duke Charles II of Mantua and Montferrat, and the last ruler of the Duchy of Mantua, of the Gonzaga family. He ruled at a time when both the French and the Austrian Empires were vying for power in Northern Italy. "Ferdinando Carlo acquired a name for dissipation and squandered the money in the treasury in his pursuit of pleasure" and "he extorted money from the [Jewish] community, bleeding them to an extent that was unprecedented in the whole history of relations between the Dukes of Gonzaga and their Jewish subjects. - "History of the Jews of Mantua" by Shlomo Simonsohn, p.67 and 69.

        Das Königliche Marck aller Länder / Das ist: Politischer Discurs Zwischen Polygamo und Monogamo von der Polygamia Oder Vielweiberey. auffgesetzt Und mit mehr als 100. Argumenten erkläret.

      Friburgi, Apud Henricum Cunrath (Angaben fingiert), 1676. - 26 nn. Bl. 4° (19,8 x 16,3 cm). Moderne Interimsbroschur mit Leinenstreifen am Rücken. Johannes Leyser oder Lyser, 1631-84, Sohn des Polykarp Leyser II und damit Abkömmling einer bedeutenden Gelehrtenfamilie, geboren in Leipzig, gestorben irgendwo zwischen Paris und Versailles nach langer Zeit des Umherirrens in ganz Europa, wird gelegentlich und fälschlich als Pseudonym des Schauspielers, Musiker und Dichters Johann Peter Theodor Burmeister (1804-1870) aufgelöst, wohl weil dieser unter seiner zahlreichen Pseudonymen sich auch Johann Peter Lyser nannte (vgl. B. Pünjer in ADB, 18, S. 526f - Eintrag unter dem Vater; vgl. auch Eymer 50). Leyser, studierter Theologe und Lutheraner, war lange Vorsteher der Landesschule in Schulpforta, die zwei Jahrhunderte später ein weiterer rebellischer Eliteschüler, Friedrich Nietzsche, besuchte. Leysers Anschauungen der Notwendigkeit von Polygamie als natur- und gottgegeben erzwangen den Bruch mit dem Vater, der Familie und der Gesellschaft insgesamt, die im Gegenzug seine Schriften verbot und verbrannte. Hayn/G. VI, 235: Jöcher II, 2629f. (Weller I, 36 - Druckort nicht aufgelöst). Bei dem Drucker "Cunrath", dessen Name leicht die Assoziation zum dem des berühmten Alchemisten Khunrath erlaubt und damit einer Mystifikation Vorschub leistet, handet es sich möglicherweise um den Hamburger Drucker Henricus Künrath, tätig 1670-93 (vgl. Gruys/de Wolf 48), damit wäre "Friburgus" die "Freie" Stadt Ham"burg". Einige kleinere Randläsuren; wasserrandig; fleckig und angegraut; Unterstreichungen von alter Hand. DE

        Il Malmantile Racquistato. Poema di Perlone Zipoli.

      Stamp. Gio. Tomm Rossi, In Finaro [ma Firenze] 1676 - In-12, pp. (48), 300. Raffinata legatura firmata Trautz-Bauzonnet in marocchino rosso, piatti incorniciati da triplice filetto in oro, dorso a nervi con titolo e ricchi fregi, dentelle e tagli dorati. Ex libris Thomas Gaisford (vendita pubblica 1890, n. 1129). Edizione originale di questo salace «scherzo» fatto di 12 cantari in ottave, pubblicato dall'autore sotto lo pseudonimo -parzialmente- anagrammato di «Perlone Zipoli». Il nostro esemplare, conservato in una raffinata legatura di Trautz-Bauzonnet, ha l'ulteriore considerevole pregio di comprendere i 16 fogli contenenti il contumelioso discorso introduttivo di Giovanni Cinelli (che fu ispirato, o probabilmente dettato, da Antonio Magliabecchi), inteso a lacerare il merito di alcuni letterati toscani allora viventi. Tale discorso, impresso alla macchia, venne unito ai soli primi 50 esemplari, molti dei quali vennero poi distrutti per deliberata volontà del Magliabecchi. L'opera, come è noto, fu pensata dal Lippi come parodia della «Gerusalemme Liberata» e alcuni episodi traggono ispirazione dal «Cunto de li Cunti» del Basile, che il Lippi aveva conosciuto attraverso Salvator Rosa.

        Pianta di Roma disegnata e incisa da Giov. Battista Falda nel 1676

      Roma: M. Danesi, [1965]. 148x150 cm. (stesse misure dell'originale).Pianta ripiegata, contenuta in una cartella editoriale che presenta qualche leggerissima abrasione e alcune piccole mancanze. [M500] Bellissima ristampa di una delle più celebri raffigurazioni cartografiche della città di Roma. Venne  pubblicata nel 1676 col titolo "Nuova pianta et alzata della città di Roma con tutte le strade, piazze et edificii de tempi, palazzi, giardini et altre fabbriche antiche e moderne come si trovano al presente nel pontificato di N.S. Papa Innocentio X con le loro dichiarationi nomi et indice copiosissimo". E' composta da dodici riquadri montati insieme su tela che compongono la pianta. Giovanni Battista Falda (Valduggia 1643 - Roma 1678). Uno dei massimi incisori della sua epoca. Nato in provincia di Vercelli, dimostrò presto inclinazione e capacità per il disegno. Venne quindi messo a bottega presso un pittore locale, e poi, a 14 anni, mandato a Roma presso uno zio che lo segnalò a Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Molto maggior rilievo ebbe tuttavia, nella formazione e nella successiva attività del giovane Falda, l'incontro con il tipografo Giovan Giacomo De Rossi titolare di una delle più note stamperie romane. Lì ebbe l'opportunità di affinare l'arte incisoria e con il suo mentore lavorò praticamente per tutta la sua breve vita.

      London : Printed for Peter Parker, 1676. - 1676 Burton Anatomy of Melancholy Depression Philosophy GOBLINS Superstition “The first psychiatric encyclopedia!” ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’ by Robert Burton is one of the most famous works on the medical condition of melancholia, or clinical depression. Originally written in 1621, this book was composed with both medical and philosophical implications. Burton addresses cures and preventions but also the human emotion that comes with melancholy, both with the afflicted and those around them. Burton teases his audience and creates light of the disease in his preface by saying, “I write of melancholy by being buy to avoid melancholy.” (Eventhough it is commonly known, Burton wrote this book in hopes of writing himself out of depression.) Burton discusses more than just melancholy in this folio text. He writes of digestion, geography of America, and GOBLINS! So, while on the surface it appears as a medical text on melancholia, it serves as a book on many disciplines and philosophies. This book also happened to be one of Samuel Johnson’s most favorite books. He had been quoted as saying that, “[‘Melancholy’] was the only book that ever took [me] out of bed two hours sooner that [I] wished to rise” (Works of Samuel Johnson, vol 8, p89) This eighth edition was the final edition of ‘Melancholy’ published in the 17th-century. It is described as “the first psychiatric encyclopedia, citing 500 medical authors” (Garrison-Morton). This fine printing includes an illustrated, engraved title page by Christoffel Le Bron with images representing the different side effects of melancholy including Superstition, Solitude, Love, Hypochondirasis, and Jealousy (zelotypia), along with a portrait of Burton or ‘Democritus Junior’ which first appeared in 1628. Item number: #1235 Price: $2950 BURTON, Robert The anatomy of melancholy : what it is, with all the kind causes, symptomes, prognostickes, & severall cures of it, in three partitions, with their severall sections, members & subsections, philosophically, medicinally, historically, opened & London : Printed for Peter Parker, 1676. Details: • Collation complete with all pages: (2), 46, (6), 434, (8), (2) • Binding: Leather; tight & secure • References: Wing B 6184; Jordan Smith 8; Garrison-Morton 4918.1; ESTC R10536 • Provenance: Bookplate – Lord John Townshend o Lord John Townshend PC (19 January 1757 – 23 February 1833), styled The Honourable John Townshend until 1787, was a British Whig politician. o Townshend was the second son of Field Marshal George Townshend, 1st Marquess Townshend, by his first wife Charlotte Compton, 15th Baroness Ferrers of Chartley. George Townshend, 2nd Marquess Townshend, was his elder brother and Charles Townshend his uncle. He was educated at Eton and St John's College, Cambridge. o Townshend was elected to the House of Commons for Cambridge University in 1780, a seat he held until 1784, and later represented Westminster from 1788 to 1790 and Knaresborough from 1793 to 1818. He was admitted to the Privy Council in 1806 and served under Lord Grenville as Paymaster of the Forces (alongside Lord Temple) between 1806 and 1807. o Townshend married in 1787 Georgiana Anne Fawkener, daughter of William Poyntz, and the divorced wife of William Fawkener. Their elder son Charles Fox Townshend was the founder of the Eton Society but died young. Their younger son John became an admiral in the Royal Navy and succeeded his first cousin in the marquessate in 1855. Their daughter Elizabeth Frances Townshend (2 August 1789 –10 April 1862 Nice) married 20 October 1813 Captain Augustus Clifford R.N., later Sir Augustus Clifford, 1st Bt (1788-1877), illegitimate son of the 5th Duke of Devonshire and his mistress, Lady Elizabeth Foster, née Hervey, later the Duke's second wife (1811). Mrs Clifford became Lady Clifford in 1838 when her husband was raised to a baronetcy. Townshend died in February 1833, aged 76. Lady Georgiana Anne died in 1851. • Language: English • Size: ~12.75 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Hamisha Humshey Torah, Neviim u'Ktuvim Bilshon Ashkenaz. (The five books of Torah, Prophets and Writings in Yiddish).

      Amsterdam Uri Feivish HaLevi printer -1679 1676 - ff. [6], 54, [1], 56-63, [1], 64-193, [1], 195-256, [1], 18; stains and wear, worming, some professionally repaired. New colourful and elaborate leather binding with gilt ornaments, housed in a marbled cardboard slipcase. The first translation of the Old Testament into Yiddish. This translation was completed by Jekuthiel ben Isaac Blitz and features approbations by the rabbi of Va'ad Arba Artzot, as well as by Amsterdam Sephardi and Ashkenazi rabbis, dated 1671-1677. The King of Poland had to give special permission for this work to be printed, and his approval appears in Yiddish and Latin on the leaves preceding the title page. The 1670s in Amsterdam saw the simultaneous printing of two different Yiddish translations of the Bible: the present edition and another, published by Yossef Atias and translated by Joseph Witzenhausen (Yossef ben Alexander). This provoked a feud between the two printers, with mutual accusations of encroachment and the falsification of rabbinic approval. The resulting litigation caused the financial ruin of both printers. For further information regarding this scandal, see: A.M. Haberman, Chapters in the History of the Hebrew Printers, pp. 300-310. Vinograd, Amsterdam 424; Fuks 336; Darlow & Moule 4485.

        Des Principes de l'Architecture, de la Sculpture, de la Peinture, et des autres arts qui en dependent. Avec un Dictionnaire des Termes propres à chacun de ces Arts.

      Coignard, 1676. Cm. 25, pp. (24) 795 (1). Vignetta centrale al frontespizio, alcune belle testate e 65 tavole a piena pagina, il tutto inciso in rame. Legatura coeva in piena pelle, dorso a nervi con titoli e ricchi fregi in oro. Qualche traccia d'uso sparsa e alcune carte di testo con curiosi segni e ghirigori eseguiti cin una matita a mina grossa, peraltro esemplare genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Non comune edizione originale di questa celebre opera d'architettura, la stessa citata da Cicognara (502) che così si esprime: "...con 65 tavole di bellissimo intaglio e le vignette incise da Le Clerc. In tutte le opere di questo autore avvi una giudiziosa scelta di cognizioni, e molto gusto anche nella maniera di esporle". La trattazione è suddivisa in tre parti principali: architettura, scultura e pittura ed infine un vocabolario di temini tecnici. Le tavole, delineate con precisione, sono dedicate prevalentemente agli strumenti di lavoro e si rivelano di grande importanza per la conoscenza delle tecniche costruttive del tempo. André Felibien (1619-1695) compose quest'opera al suo ritorno da Roma, dove passò vari anni a studiare gli elementi della classicità e dove venne a contatto con gli uomini più eminenti in campo artistico e letterario. Di lui si ricorda anche l'opera: Entretiens sur les vies et sur les ouvrages des plus excellents peintres anciens et modernes.

        ORNITHOLOGIAE LIBRI TRES.

      London JOHN MARTYN 1676 - First edition. Folio (36.3 x 22.5 cm.), 2 folding letterpress tables, 77 engraved plates, lacking initial imprimatur leaf, browning to text leaves, title-leaf slightly frayed at fore-edge and with very small hole in centre, three plates with tears repaired, later vellum with arms tooled in blind on covers, a good example. "The Ornithologiæ libri tres (referred to as the Ornithology) is one of the first truly scientific ornithological texts. It was published four years after the death of Francis Willughby (1635–1672) by his friend and collaborator John Ray (1627–1705). These two natural historians had met at Trinity College Cambridge in the 1650s and spent time travelling around Britain and Europe collecting and observing nature. Previous works concerning birds typically contained information gleaned from earlier sources such as Aristotle and Pliny with extra comments by the author. These works would usually describe the birds, where they might be found, whether they were edible, if they had any medicinal value, and what their human traits and characteristics were (for example Wrens are viewed as brave while Finches are dim-witted). It was also not uncommon to find mythical and fabled birds such as the phoenix and griffin amongst the pages of such works. As the study of natural history progressed the standards of ornithological works improved but they still lacked sensible and coherent organisation. Birds tended to be grouped together by habitat and then by their actions. Walter Charleton's (1619–1707) system, explained in his Onomasticon zoicon (London, 1668), involved looking at the birds' diets, whether they bathed (and in what water/sand) or sang. The way birds were ordered changed with the publication of the Ornithology. Firstly, they are classed here as land or water birds. The land birds are then divided into those with crooked beaks and claws and then those with straight beaks. The water birds are divided into those 'that wade in the waters, or frequent watery places, but swim not; The second, such as are of a middle nature between swimmers and waders, or rather that partake of both kinds, some whereof are cloven-footed, and yet swim; others whole-footed, but yet very long-leg'd like the waders: The third is of whole-footed, or fin-toed Birds, that swim in the water'. This is thought to be the first attempt to rationally classify birds. The 77 illustrations contained in the Ornithology come from various sources. Some are copies made from the collection of pictures and specimens owned by Willughby, others Ray had commissioned. The quality of the illustrations varies greatly; some are very lifelike and easily identified while others are not. Many of the birds have unusual postures for their species while those drawn from specimens (dead or alive) tend to be the more accurate. Ray himself puts the lack of quality down to the fact that he was unable to fully oversee the engravers' work as he was away from London and had to send instructions by letter. The illustrations credited to Thomas Browne (1605–1682) are of the best quality. These are thought to include the illustrations of the Shearwater, Little Auk, Razorbill, and Great Northern Diver" (Dawn Moutrey, University of Cambridge, Whipple Library). Anker 532 (variant); Nissen IVB 991; Wing W2879 (with title-page variant recorded as ESTC R471002). [Attributes: First Edition]

        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 based on the most reliable sources of information then available.Some light is thrown on the character of Blasius by his unprovoked attack on the guileless Steno. He dismisses his victim, who was only twenty - three years of age at the time, as a " wretched boy ", and accuses him of deceit, ingratitude, bad manners, injustice, blundering, foolishness, perfidy, incivility, unveracity, treachery, calumny, scoffing, malice, arrogance, perversity, audacity, shamelessness, impudence, fatuity and depravity. The occasion of this exhaustive and relentless indictment was the somewhat trifling dispute as to which of them had been responsible for the discovery of the duct of the parotid gland. The judgment of posterity, however, leaves the issue in no doubt, and the invective of Blasius is condemned as the measure of his own mendacity in laying claim to this modest discovery.Some reference may now be made to those sections of Blasius' manual which are based on his own researches. The heart of the tortoise, he says, consists of but two chambers - an auricle and a ventricle. His figures of this organ vary from edition to edition, and there may be some lack of congruity even in the same plate. He evidently saw the origin from the ventricle of the common pulmonary arch and innominate artery. His vein which passes " from the auricle into the liver " must have been the postcaval. The elaborate figure of the heart and respiratory organs with the head in the withdrawn position represents the aortic arches as being threaded through loops in the bronchi - a condition which would make the protrusion of the head a difficult and dangerous proceeding. His illustrations of the male genitalia do not agree, but assuming that the last edition expresses his final views, the figure is reasonably accurate as regards the facts but the parts are not correctly identified. His vesicula seminalis is the epididymis, and the parastata [epididymis] is the kidney. The ureter and vas deferens are distinguished but not lettered. In the gut the caecum is shown although its existence is denied in the text, and his detailed account of the diaphragm only convinces us that he saw the peritoneum.In the serpent, Blasius describes the asymmetry of the organs associated with an elongated body form, but finds only a single auricle in the heart, the great vessels of which were imperfectly examined and most of them overlooked. His account of the biliary apparatus is more satisfactory, both as regards observation and interpretation. He noted that the heart continued to beat for some time after decapitation, and even after it had been removed from the body.Blasius was the first to associate the production of voice in birds with the lower larynx. In his account of the dissection of the heron of 1674, but more clearly in the manual of 1681, he remarks that " just at the place where the trachea divides into two branches there exists in each branch a single cleft, which is responsible for the production of sound ". This reads as if he had seen a syrinx tracheobronehialis, and his crude and simple figures seem to bear this out. But compare Perrault's more detailed results of 1680 (p. 430).The unique and astonishing orbicular muscle of the hedgehog is described, and for the first time figured, by Blasius in 1674, the figure, however, only indifferently suggesting the muscle it is designed to represent. The skin and muscle, he says, adhere so closely to each other that they are almost inseparable, but the spines are not directly involved. The muscle itself had been previously dissected by Coiter in 1572 and by Steno in 1672. One of Blasius' most successful efforts is his dissection of the male genitalia and os penis of the rat. In his time it was not possible correctly to interpret the parts of such a preparation, but nevertheless he does not go badly astray. His " three muscles " represent the crura penis and corpora cavernosa, and the " glandulae " are the prostate and Cowper's glands, which latter he found before Cowper, who described, but did not discover, them in 1699 in man. Blasius is mistaken in stating that the vasa deferentia open into the bladder, but he established the presence of glands on these ducts, and he saw the large seminal vesicles. His figure shows the position of the testes reversed, unless he has in error derived the vasa deferentia from the caput instead of the cauda epididymis. Blasius was ap-parently the first to describe the mammalian ovarian bursa or sac, his material being the civet-cat. This sac is a small enclosed portion of the coelom which lodges the ovary, and in some mammals, such as the rat, it communicates only with the Fallopian tube. In his later works he gives two modified versions of this figure, which are less accurate than the original.Blasius* observations on human anatomy are followed by eighty-five pages devoted to the anatomy of the dog. This is the first comprehensive and original treatise on a vertebrate since the publication of Ruini's volume on the horse in 1598. His reason for writing it was that owing to the difficulty of obtaining human bodies for dissection substitutes had to be found, of which the dog was one. It was hence imperative to acquire an exact knowledge of the points in which the dog resembled and differed from man. His approach to the dog, therefore, is not as a comparative but as a human anatomist. Not that he is indifferent to the anatomy of the dog as such, but if, as he says, the human anatomist has to accept the dog in place of man, the structure of this animal must be better known, since the current anatomical texts and tables are exclusively human. He then proceeds to work through the dog system by system, making comparisons with man where necessary to his purpose. In this small but noteworthy monograph Blasius is one of the early describers of the ligamentum teres uteri. He gives a good figure of it in the dog, which shows the tubular process of the ligament passing into the inguinal canal or canal of Nuck."
