      Amsterdam: Jacob van Meurs, 1677 - Folio, in two parts. Contemporary mottled calf neatly rebacked, two-line gilt border to edges, all edges speckled red.

The extensive panorama of Jerusalem in the present work had also been used in Dapper's book on Asia (Amsterdam 1672).

        Vechtstreek antieke kaart - Petrus Schenk.

      BUITENPLAATSEN IN DE VECHTSTREEK?Nieuwe kaart van Mynden en de 2 Loosdrechten, mitsgaders van 's-Graveland nevens het gerecht van Breukelen en Loenersloot??. Kopergravure voor het eerst uitgegeven rond 1677 en herzien na 1702. Dit exemplaar werd heruitgegeven door Petrus Schenk rond 1720 en werd in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 48 x 56 cm.Deze weinig bekende overzichtskaart van het middengedeelte van de Vechtstreek (tussen Nederhorst den Berg en Maarssen), is in z?n tijd waarschijnlijk een bestseller onder buitenplaats bezitters geweest. Ca. 155 buitenplaatsen aan de Angstel, de Vecht en te ?s-Graveland worden genoemd.De buitens ontstonden in een periode van enorme opbloei van handel en nijverheid in de steden (met name Amsterdam). Een nieuwe sociale bovenlaag van de bevolking was in korte tijd rijk geworden door handel met overzeese gebieden en kon zich een riante tweede woning in een landschappelijk fraai gebied veroorloven. ?s Winters woonde men in de stad, maar ?s zomers hadden ze met hun talrijk personeel een aangenaam leven in hun buitenhuis. De Vechtstreek was daarbij geliefd door de gemakkelijke bereikbaarheid met openbare trekschuiten en particuliere jachten.De herziening van de kaart werd medegefinancierd door Jeronimus de Haze de Georgio, een belangrijke Amsterdamse regent die in Loosdrecht een buitenplaats bezat. Voor zijn bijdrage krijgt hij zijn wapen op de kaart gezet.Literatuur: Donkersloot-de Vrij ?De Vechtstreek??, nr. 20bPrijs: ?3.650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        L'homme de René Descartes, et la formation du foetus, avec les Remarques de Louis de la Forge. A quoy l'on a ajouté le Monde ou Traité de la Lumière du mesme Autheur

      Paris: Chez Theodore Girard, 1677 Illustrated with intext woodcuts. Second edition. Bound in full contemporary dark brown calf, with five raised bands to the spine, lettered and decorated in gilt, board edges decorated in gilt, all edges speckled red. A good copy, with some loss to the calf on the rear board, resewn endbands, some paper reinforcement to the inner hinges, minor splitting to the front outer hinge, rubbing to the spine, light scratching to the boards, minor gouge to the rear free endpaper, ink stain to the rear pastedown, a few faint creases and spots to the otherwise clean pages. The second French edition of Descartes' seminal treaties on physiology and natural philosophy. Originally written as physiological appendix to his Discourse on Method, both the Treatise on Man and Treatise on Light were originally intended to be paired with a third segment - the Treatise on Soul - under the collected title The World. Notably, Descartes did not publish these treatises during his lifetime, lest he suffer the fate of Galileo and be persecuted for his research; the first editions were published over a decade after his death. Treatise on Man was first published in Latin as De homine in 1662 and then in French as Traité de l'homme in 1664. Treatise on Light was published in part in Latin in the textbook Principia philosophiae in 1644 and in entirety in French as Le monde de Mr. Descartes ou la Traité de la Lumière in 1664. This is the second French edition for both treatises. Both the Treatise on Light and the Treatise on Man are notable for their descriptions of natural processes as scientific, if not mechanical, functions. Treatise on Man, which focuses on the human body, is the summation of Descartes' fascination with the internal functions. An influential text in the fields of science, medicine and philosophy, it is renowned for Descartes early observations on blood circulation, muscle reflex, the pineal gland, and human cognition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        In Quator INSTITUTIONUM IMPERALIUM JUSTINIANI, Commentarii [Commentaries upon the Institutes (Codex) of Justinian]

      Georgii Andreae Dolhopffii, Strasburg and Frankfurt 1677 - Thick 4to, Johann Schneidewein (1519-1568) was a German jurist. At the age of eleven, he entered the University of Wittenberg and became acquainted with Martin Luther, when he was a boarder at his house in 1544. At first, Scheidewein studied what we would now describe as the "liberal arts". He then turned his attention to the study of law and was granted the degree of licentiate in 1545 (some accounts say 1544). For the next four years he taught and, in 1551, was granted a professorhip in law at the university. In the years prior to his death, he was often consulted on legal matters of state, and several times took part in deputations to the imperial court at Speyer. He died in Wittenberg in 1568, and his tomb at the Castle Church in that city is close to Luther's. His main work was his Commentaries on Justinian, which were edited by Matthias Wesenbeck and first published in 1573. Our copy is a ninth edition and is bound in vellum with yapped edges and a leather spine in compartments, and bears the copperplate engraved frontispiece of Schneidewein. Pagination: [blank], [frontis.], [3], [Appendix, 8], 1-1904 (double-columned; two page numbers to a page). Index [94]. The vellum shows wear and some soiling. It appears that the joints were at some time in the past repaired, with glue residue showing on boards. Spine leather chipped, and joints beginning to crack at spine ends. Front hinge neatly repaired. Contents tight, with some marginal wear to preliminary pages, else clean with only some very light foxing. Overall, a good plus copy of an important early legal and philosophical text. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Unsigned Autograph Letter to 'My Dearest brother', the Scottish judge Lord HALTON, (John Maitland, 1616-1682, Secretary for Scotland 1660-1680, 1st Duke, the 'L' of 'CABAL')

      1677 - [Haltoun, Hatton] (Sir Charles Maitland, c. 1620-1691, from 1682 3rd Earl of Lauderdale), as 'His Majesty's Treasurer Depute in Scotland', with transcription, saying that yesterday he received "the letter which the Lords of Councell" in Scotland "were pleas'd to write to me, with the inclosed for the King [not present] which his Majestie was well pleased with, & hath ordered Robin Murray to be sent prisoner by sea. On saterday you shall know the name of the vessell. The witnesses shall also come. On monday God willing I shall begin my journey And by saterday come sennet [one week] after, being the 14 July I hope to be at Lethington. Next post yew shall heare againe . Adieu", address panel with his seal bearing the arms of Scotland within the garter, 1 side 4to and address on conjugate leaf, Whitehall, (Thursday) 28th June dusty, else good including seal impression (Transcription) Whitehall, 28th June Yesterday I received the letter wch the Lords of Councell were pleas'd to write to me, with the inclosed for the King [not present] wch his Maj.tie was well pleased with, & hath ordered Robin Murray to be sent prisoner by sea. On saterday you shall know the name of the vessell. The witnesses shall also come. On monday God willing I shall begin my journey And by saterday come sennet after, being the 14 July I hope to be at Lethington. Next post yew shall heare againe. So with my service to all friends My dearest brother Adieu. Robin Murray is, no doubt, the Robert Murray, imprisoned in England twice in 1677, 'first for "defamation of his majesty and his government" and then more vaguely "in order to his being sent into Scotland to be tried there according to law for several crimes". On both occasions King's Bench bailed him rather than allow his deportation'. (Paul D. Halliday, Habeas Corpus: from England to Empire, 2010, p. 236). The present letter suggests that Lauderdale, whose oversight of Scotland, through his brother when he was in England, was growing daily more oppressive, had gone directly to Charles II to secure Murray's deportation. Lauderdale's brother Charles took his title from the estate of Haltoun, 8 miles west of Edinburgh, acquired through his wife, when he was made a lord of session in 1669, although devoid of legal training or experience as a judge. Murray's case arose out of the French-Dutch War, 1672-1678. Louis XVI wanted to convert the Dutch Republic to Catholicism; his allies, including Great Britain, joined in for reasons of trade. In 1674 Great Britain made a separate peace with the Dutch, but several regiments, including that in which the future Duke of Marlborough was serving, remained in the French service. On 19th May 1675 a Royal Proclamation ordered all such to return home. It was a dead letter. Recruiting, levying and impressment by Colonels of regiments and Captains of companies, especially in Ireland and Scotland, continued. In January 1677, one Harriot was part of a load shipped under harsh duress from Edinburgh to Ostend, where he and others were freed by the Spanish governor. Back in London, he was recommended by the Spanish Ambassador's secretary to one John Harrington, in whose chamber he met Murray and told him his story. Harrington took him to see Lord Cavendish and other MPs, and Murray, according to Harriot, passed his story on to the Duke of Hamilton. Murray also warned Harriot to avoid Lauderdale, the Secretary for Scotland. (In 1672, Lauderdale had put Murray, a Scottish laird, in irons; Murray had not been in Scotland since). In March 1677, Harrington was brought before the King and his Council. The supplying of men to Louis XIV reflected on Lauderdale. The King, whose was always ambiguous towards France, sat stony-faced. When Harrington refused to name the MPs he had consulted, the Council committed him to the Tower for contempt. Murray too was arrested and imprisoned on 14th March. On Friday 17th March 1677, the Commons resolved that people who continued to supply the French with t

        Opera Posthuma, WITH Arcana Atheismi Revelata (Secrets of Atheism Revealed)

      Published by [Amsterdam, Jan Rieuwertsz], 1677 First Edition. Frans Kuyper's scarce refutation of Spinoza's "Tractatus Politicus" - Complete with errata. Bound with a complete copy of Spinoza's opus, Opera Posthuma(Præfationem,The Ethics. the Tractatus Politicus, the Tractatus de Intellectus Emendatione, Epistolae, & ad eas responsiones, Compendium Grammatices Linguae Hebraeae with errata). Both works bound in one, contemporary stiff vellum binding. Numerous contemporary owner notes in Latin. Binding with usual rubbing, top edge dust stained with age, else a very nice, sound, and internally clean copy.********Opera Posthuma comes up at auction frequently enough, but Arcana Atheismi is a ghost. This is the only copy to appear in any auction or sales records since 1860 and just 3 copies are listed on OCLC interred in Dutch libraries. A true rarity of Spinoza collecting.*************Frans Kuyper was a Dutch Socinian Christian – I won't go into the details of their beliefs, but as seen throughout Christianity, disagreements about all manner of theological minutiae would result in various offshoot sects. He also owned a printing house in Amsterdam and partook in the assault of Spinoza as an atheist in Arcana Atheismi.*** "Spinoza's atheism was mainly deduced from his comments in the Tractatus theologico politicus on the identity of God's will and intellect, and from his identification of the power of God and the power of Nature. As Spinoza's detractors increased their output and musings, it became generally agreed that Baruch was an atheist. An atheist who had covered up his feelings through the contortions of his writings and had to be revealed as soon as possible. Kuyper's contribution to the assault was direct – Arcana Atheismi Revelata, or Secrets of Atheism Revealed." (Van Bunge)***

        Les médecins à la censure

      chez Louis Gontier : 1677 : Paris : 12mo: ã6 A-2G8,4 2H6, 192 leaves, pp. [12] 370 [2], last page blank, typographic device on title signed 'DF', woodcut headpieces and initials. : A dialogue between Cariste, a cleric and advocate, Cleante, a gentleman, and Sosandre, a well known doctor. The lawyer and gentleman throw a series of objections to medicine at Sosandre who defends his profession. Bezançon insists this is not an apologia for medicine, the reader must see for himself if Sosandre's replies are reasonable. In the seventh conversation Bezançon quotes the preface to Tartuffe, to show that Molière's condemnation of the profession was no more than comic licence.Apparently a doctor himself, Bezançon wrote another polemic Les medecine pretendüe reformée (Paris, 1683) and a more strictly medical work Nouveau traité des fièvres (Paris, 1690). He is not noticed by Hoefer, Bayle and Thillaye, or Hirsch.Dedicated to Louise Henriette de Cominge, Comtesse de Grandpré.

First and only editions of three rare and interesting Dutch mathematical and astronomical works, one known only from the present copy and an 18th century reference. Ad 1: An astronomical work with information on the orbits of the sun, moon and planets, the positions of the stars and dates of solar and lunar eclipses. It includes new calculations of the orbit of Mercury, based on the work of the famous astronomers Petrus Gassendus and Hevelius making use of data from its 1677 transit of the sun. An appendix gives instructions for constructing various astronomical dials for calculating the positions of the moon and planets and the times and extents of eclipses. Ad 2: A fascinating work challenging the possibility of calculating longitude at sea, whether using the position of the moon, a pendulum clocks, an hourglass or the magnetic declination. Determination of longitude was one of the greatest problems of the science of navigation and Slikker argues that the problem is insolvable. While not literally true it proved impractical for navigators until John Harrison in England developed an accurate marine chronometer, described in a 1767 publication. Measuring the exact position of the moon proved too difficult for most navigators with simple instruments. Ad 3: Only copy located of an astronomical and astrological work on the calculation of the orbit of the sun and its position in the twelve constellations: it was known to Arrenberg in 1788 but the 19th-century references may have known his description or the present copy (then in the Royal Library in Berlin). Luchtenburg (active ca. 1684-1706) taught astronomy, geography and navigation in Rotterdam. In the present work he criticizes calculations published in almanacs for the year 1699. With stamp of the Royal Library in Berlin and the bookplate of the Mexican bibliophile José G. Herrera Alcala. Ad 2 incomplete (pp. 145-152 have been torn out) and the plates in ad 1 and folding table (with a tear repaired) in ad 3 slightly browned. Otherwise a good copy. The binding is worn.

Louis Maimbourg's histories and his belief that the Roman Catholic church in France should maintain some independence from papal control put him out of favor with the Catholic church.

        Les médecins à la censure

      chez Louis Gontier : 1677 : Paris : 12mo: ã6 A-2G8,4 2H6, 192 leaves, pp. [12] 370 [2], last page blank, typographic device on title signed 'DF', woodcut headpieces and initials. : A dialogue between Cariste, a cleric and advocate, Cleante, a gentleman, and Sosandre, a well known doctor. The lawyer and gentleman throw a series of objections to medicine at Sosandre who defends his profession. Bezançon insists this is not an apologia for medicine, the reader must see for himself if Sosandre's replies are reasonable. In the seventh conversation Bezançon quotes the preface to Tartuffe, to show that Molière's condemnation of the profession was no more than comic licence.Apparently a doctor himself, Bezançon wrote another polemic Les medecine pretendüe reformée (Paris, 1683) and a more strictly medical work Nouveau traité des fièvres (Paris, 1690). He is not noticed by Hoefer, Bayle and Thillaye, or Hirsch.Dedicated to Louise Henriette de Cominge, Comtesse de Grandpré.

        Exercitatio anatomico-medica de glandulis intestinorum, earumque usu & affectionibus : cui subjungitur Anatome ventriculi gallinacei.

      Schaffhausen: Onophrius a Waldkirch, 1677. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (150x94 mm), [28], 136, [6] pp. Separate half-title for the second text, 3 folding engraved plates, 3 leaves of plate explanations (possible cut and separated from one leaf) bound next to plates within text, title-page somewhat creased and with small tear to top margin not affecting text. Only little browned, otherwise clean and unmarked. Without cover (paper strip to spine). Good copy of an exceedingly rare work. ----ADB XXV, 568; Garrison-Morton 1100; Waller 7359; Hirsch-Hubotter IV, 550 - FIRST EDITION. During the period when Peyer and his associates were conducting their research in Schaffhausen, the chemical processes governing digestion were unknown. In the present book, Peyer described what has come to be called "Peyer's patches," the lymphoid follicles in the small intestine that play a role in typhoid fever. Extremely rare: 9 copies located in OCLC. One copy with the same number of plates sold at Sotheby's in 2001 (Friedman Medical Library sale) for $13,200. Erstes und wohl folgenreichstes Werk des Schweizer Mediziners Peyer (1653-1712), in der er die 'Noduli lymphatici aggregatii' des menschlichen Dünndarmes beschrieb, die er irrtümlich fur Drüsen hielt. Dieser Irrtum hielt sich bis in die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts, als Brucke den lymphatischen Charakter der vermeintlichen Drüsen erkannte. Obwohl schon 1645 Marco Aurelio Severino diese Strukturen beschrieben hatte, sind sie bis heute in der Medizin als "Peyersche Platten" bekannt. Very Good.

      First edition, rare and precious. Full Sheepskin brown time. Back tooled raised. Epidermis together. Lacks the joints head cover; and tail to the upper joint. A dull corner. Important relationship for the western KNOWLEDGE Egypt. Vansleb, German philologist and theologian, began serving Colbert for a proposed trip to Ethiopia, but it never went further than Egypt, where he spent 20 months to observe and collect information, multiplying excursions and trips . Vansleb never returns to the descriptions that have already been made by others (the pyramids), aware of its readers deliver entirely new information. If this is not the first relationship on Egypt, this is the first of a man long resident in the country; anyway it is one of the first, but the first in this way. The author had already made a first time in Egypt, he had pulled a narration in Italian, but it did not have that knowledge of Arabic which allows him contact with the population, and it was not remained in the country. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        The primitive origination of mankind

      printed by William Godbid, for William Shrowsbery : 1677 : London : Folio: a4 b2 B-3B4 3C2, 104 leaves, pp. [12] 380, including the blank a1. Woodcut diagrams on pp. 119 and 123. : An important precursor of Malthus, Hale was the first to use the expression 'Geometrical Proportion' for the growth of a population. He believed that natural calamities periodically reduce the populations of animals, so maintaining a balance of nature (Garrison-Morton). Hale's work is also celebrated for his humanist approach to psychiatry (Hunter and MacAlpine). This was the first of Hale's scientific works, written in the 1660s. Hale occasionally performed experiments, but his main approach was to suggest mechanistic explanations of phenomena presented in the existing literature (Alan Cromartie in ODNB).This good large copy, with a fine impression of the portrait of Hale, was presented to Hale's fellow lawyer at Lincoln's Inn, Edward Webbe. The presentation inscription is by the publisher, William Shrewsbury, perhaps acting on Hale's instructions before his death the previous year. Shrewsbury had published Hale's Contemplations moral and divine in 1677 whch proved to be one of his best sellers. Webbe matriculated at Balliol College, Oxford, aged 17, on 17 July 1663 and is recorded as a barrister-at-law at Lincoln's Inn in 1673.In 1880 the book belonged to one E. W. Edwards of Wells, Somerset, who had it repaired by a local bookbinder for 4s. Besides the invoice he kept a letter from a friend who had helped him getting the binding work done, who writes: 'Any other of your old Library I hope you will also have repaired. These old volumes are now in very few hands & should be well cared for & preserved.' The book later belonged to James Stevens-Cox, F.S.A. (1910-1997), who is characterised by Robert Harding in Maggs' catalogue of his library - mostly of theology - as 'a bibliophile and antiquary by inclination, an all-round eccentric by nature, and, by turns, a hairdresser, antiquarian bookseller and finally, publisher by profession'.

The circles of proportion and the horizontal instrument &c....; translated into English and set forth for the publique benefit by W[illiam] F[orster]; and now by the authors consent, revised ... by A[rthur] H[aughton]. Oxford: W. Hall for R. Davis, 1660.

      1652; 1677; 1660. A remarkable sammelband containing the bulk of Oughtred's published works, with the exception of his Mathematical recreations. Oughtred (1574-1660) was one of the most important and influential mathematicians of the first half of the seventeenth century and was much admired by Newton, who described him as "a man whose judgment (if any man's) may be safely relied upon" (Correspondence III, 364). Oughtred "exercised a formative influence on a host of young men with a mathematical bent, alike at the university level and at the instrument maker's bench" (Taylor, Practitioners, p. 192). One of Oughtred's pupils, William Forster, visited him at his rectory at Albury, Surrey in 1630, and persuaded him to let him translate and publish his Latin treatises. Ad I. Third and best edition of Oughtred's most important work, edited by John Wallis, with three further treatises published here for the first time (or the first time in Latin for the last). Clavis mathematicae (The key of the mathematics now forged and filed in the English edition, 1647) was first published as Arithmeticae in numeris in 1631 and contained all that was then known in arithmetic and algebra. Both popular and hugely influential, both in England and on the Continent, the Clavis was translated into English in 1647 by Robert Wood and as late as 1694 a new translation by Halley was published. It was here that Oughtred introduced the signs x for multiplication and :: for proportion, along with many other signs and abbreviations which have not been adopted, though in a number of cases his lead has been followed and similar symbols have become standard. The second part of the main work, 'De aequationum affectarum resolution in numeris,' treats the approximate numerical solution of polynomial equations by a method which goes back to Viète and of which the modern 'Newton-Raphson' method is a further development. After two geometrical tracts, here in their first editions, the work concludes with a more practical treatise on laying out sundials by geometry (this was first printed in English in 1647 with the translation of the Clavis). Ad II. First edition. Although, according to Aubrey, Oughtred burnt "a world of papers" just before his death in 1660, he also left behind a great number of papers on mathematical subjects; and, in most of his Greek and Latin mathematical books there were found notes in his own handwriting, with an abridgment of almost every proposition and demonstration in the margin. These came into the hands of Sir Charles Scarborough (1616-94), first physician to Charles II, who prepared those which were suitable to be printed for the university press. The resulting collection, Opuscula Mathematica hactenus inedita, contains the following pieces: 1. Institutiones mechanics. 2. De variis corporum generibus gravitate et magnitudine comparatis. 3. Automata. 4. Questiones Diophanti Alexandrini, libri tres. 5. De triangulis planis rectangulis. 6. De divisione superficierum. 7. Musicae elementa. 8. De propugnaculorum munitionibus. 9. Sectiones angulares. Ad III. Second edition of the first manual for the slide-rule - the every-day pocket calculating device of scientists and engineers for the next three centuries - invented by Oughtred about 1621. Circles of proportion was first published in 1632-3 and describes the principles of logarithmic scales and the use of the slide-rule in a wide range of applications including astronomical and navigational. The 'circle of proportion' of the title is a circular logarithmic scale with pointers, while the 'horizontal instrument' is a device for laying out sundials on any inclined plane. The rectilinear slide-rule is described at the end of the second part "An addition unto the use of the instrument, called the circles of proportion, for the working of nauticall questions" (this has a separate dated title page, but the pagination and register are continuous). Oughtred was an early proponent of Napier's logarithms (1614), assisting Henry Briggs in the completion of Napier's tables, so it is not surprising that he should have been among those who saw the possibilities of mechanical methods of using logarithms. He was not, however, the first to publish: the circular instrument was described by Oughtred's pupil (and henceforth enemy) Richard Delamain in 1631 and the true slide rule was mentioned by Edmund Wingate, who probably invented it independently but later than Oughtred, in 1630. This second edition was edited by Arthur Haughton who stresses that the changes he has made are with the author's 'advice and appointment.' There is a copy of the first edition in the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford with corrections, said to be in the author's hand, some of which were incorporated into the second edition (see STC 18899, note). Three works in one volume, bound in contemporary yapped vellum (fore-edge of upper cover damaged with some loss, slight wear to other edges, re-cased). 8vo (159 x 104 mm). Clavis: Four parts each with separate title, pp. [xvi (first leaf blank)], 151; [2], 46; [4], 10; [2], 41 [recte 45], [3, first two blank, third with diagram to be cut out and pasted on p. 40], woodcut diagrams in text. ESTC R29067; Macclesfield 218; Wing O574; Madan 2203. Opuscula: Pp. [viii (first leaf blank)], 212 [i.e. 228], [1, errata], with double-page folding table at p. 60 and three folding engraved plates. ESTC R203065; Macclesfield 2289; Wing O586; Madan 3147. Circles: Two parts in one vol., pp. [iv], 254, with eight folding engraved plates (numbered I-V and three unnumbered). Oxford: W. Hall for R. Davis, 1660. ESTC calls for an additional final leaf with vertical half-title; this may represent a variant issue (it is present in only two of the four copies in Cambridge University Library).

        Histoire du gouvernement de Venise, avec le supplément; et l'examen de la liberté originaire de Venise

      Chez Frederic Leonard. Edition partly original, rare, much preferable to the original 1676 which contains only the first part; it is thereby significantly increased by major parts. A frontispiece representing the Piazza San Marco in Venice. The 1677 edition contains 3 titles for each section plus an added title summarizing the whole; it is easy to perceive that we find very rarely found these three parts in libraries (see Oxford, Leeds ...) and they most often appear separately. No doubt there hath several editions that date from 1677, of which only the latter contains three parts. Also this year the sphere would suggest that it was printed elsewhere; the third part deals Ratisbone as place of publication and publisher for Jean Aubry. This part contains the Rant Louis Helian, Ambassador of France under Louis XII.Binding in Full Calf glossy brown time. Back to mute nerves decorated with cold wheels on the caps and nerves. Cold nets on the dishes. Good copy.More than a history of Venice, this is a critical study of its institutions and its laws. The book was not well received in Venice where it is burned, diplomatic relations with France soured (Amelot de la Houssaye was secretary of embassy in Venice), and the King of France was more or less forced to deliver the author Bastille (six days) to satisfy Venice. The additional studies and storytelling disputes What would the Republic with Pope Paul V. The third part of the book is a translation of a book of Fra Paolo. The Rant Louis Hélian was pronounced in 1510 before the Emperor Maximilian, she very harshly accuses the Republic of Venice many ailments.

Joaquin Ibarra, 1792. Folio. With woodcut royal cypher monogram on title-page ("YA") and 5 engraved plates. Contemporary tree calf, richly gold-tooled spine.

      - Blake, p. 336, Palau 209407; WorldCat (4 copies); not in Duveen; Ferguson. Rare eighth edition of a work on pharmaceutical chemistry written by the Spanish apothecary Félix Palacios (1677-1737). When the Palestra farmaceutica appeared in 1706, it was the first work on the subject written in the Spanish language. Even though the book became widely accepted and used in Spain, Palacios met strong resistance from his colleagues because he rejected the galenic, or plant based, medicines in favour of chemical medicines. With this he rejected the ideas of Galen, Mesue and Dioscorides, which were still the standard in most parts of Europe and the Middle East. The work starts with a preliminary text, followed by a chapter on the general principles of pharmacy and chemistry in the form of questions and answers. The other four chapters deal with the ingredients and making of the medicines. It discusses distillation and calcination methods with the engraved plates showing various tools and instruments: pots, furnaces, alambics etc. Browned and foxed throughout, some occasional waterstains, and with a curious grey wash of colour on two of the plates, not affecting the visibility of the engraving. Binding worn along the extremities, wormhole on bottom spine. Otherwise a good copy.

RÉSUMÉ: L'héroïne mousquetaire, histoire véritable de Jean de Préchac est une nouvelle parue en quatre parties entre 1677 et 1678. Cette oeuvre peu connue mérite d'être relue non seulement pour ses qualités littéraires mais aussi parce qu'elle traite du travestissement de manière originale. En effet, du point de vue thématique, le travestissement évoque le théâtre et les nombreux jeux identitaires qu'il exploite abondamment. Tout au long de l'oeuvre, des passages rappellent cette filiation générique, notamment en liant la nouvelle à la comédie et à la tragédie, que ce soit en permettant à Christine de Meyrac de devenir une véritable comédienne qui évolue sur le scène du monde, ou en transformant le lecteur en spectateur, adoptant alors

      Amsterdam" (fictitious imprint): Jean Sambix" (pseudonym), 1677. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. 2 parts in one volume. Engraved frontispiece, [5] ff., 92 pp. (including Letter "aux Dames" and Avertissement), 3 ff. (Table des questions); 78 pp. (front endpaper excised). Contemporary French calf (headcap and top two corners of binding unobtrusively repaired). Early ownership inscription of Jan Laborde who apparently purchased the book in Paris in November, 1693. An extremely curious book, apparently overlooked by the standard authorities. That the work was intended for female audiences is attested by the 7-page letter "Aux Dames" immediately following the title page. The first part contains a set of DIVINATIONS with a list of 71 questions to ask the ORACLE, with 71 sheets each containing 16 responses (one for each quadrant of the wheel of fortune represented on the frontispiece), a total of 1136 answers possible for each question. At the end of the questions are printed 10 lines where the inquisitor can write questions for to the oracle. The rules of "The Game" are explained in a prophetic warning. First published in Paris in 1647, our copy belongs to a slightly later Amsterdam edition and features a similarly curious engraved frontispiece of Fortuna at her wheel, below which are four inquisitors (two male and two female). The second part presents a 78-page analysis of the curious symbolism of COLORS, MYSTICAL SYMBOLS, the MEANINGS OF LOVE, ARMORIAL DEVICES, etc., all of which can be explained by any kind of TREES, HERBS, and FLOWERS. The name of the printer is given as "Jean Sambix" although this is known to be a pseudonym, employed not only in Leyden by Daniel and Johannes Elzevier but also by their competitors in Brussels, Rouen, and Paris (see Brunet, Les Imprimeurs imaginaires). REFERENCE: Caillet, No. 11540 (unable to locate any early editions). Ours is the finest copy on the market.

        Exercitatio anatomico-medica de glandulis intestinorum [...] cum subjungitur Anatome ventriculi gallinacei

      Schaffhausen, Onophrius a Waldkirch, 1677. In-8 de (28), 136 pages et 3 planches repliées avec leur feuillet explicatif ; demi-vélin à coins de l'époque, plats de papier marbré. Plaques de Peyer et typhoïde. Rare première édition, et second état avec les illustrations hors-texte. En effet, à la fin de son texte, page 136, Peyer indique qu'il n'a pas trouvé de graveur afin de faire imprimer ses dessins (mais qu'il sera aisé de constater ses descriptions et découvertes anatomiques sur des organes de volailles). Ainsi, il existe quelques exemplaires sans gravure mais aussi des exemplaires avec gravures et leur feuillet explicatif. Les bibliographes ont supposé qu'il s'agissait des gravures de la seconde édition de 1681. Il n'en en rien. Une comparaison des deux éditions montrent clairement que les gravures de l'édition originale de 1677 sont autonomes et furent donc gravées rapidement après l'impression du texte et ajoutées aux exemplaires encore non-vendues. L'Exercitatio de 1677 est un texte important dans l'histoire anatomique du système lymphatique puisqu'il constitue la description canonique des follicules lymphoïdes qui portent aujourd'hui le nom de l'auteur, les plaques de Peyer. Si l'on sait aujourd'hui le rôle important des plaques de Peyer pour la défense immunologique de l'intestin, Peyer l'ingorait mais toutefois, il savait le rôle de ces follicules dans le cas de fièvre typhoïde. Après, les découvertes de Glisson en 1654 et en parallèle à celles de son compatriote Brunner, Peyer joue un rôle central dans la compréhension anatomique des nombreuses parties du système digestif. Sont reliés en tête WEPFER (Johann Jacob), Observationes anatomicae ex cadaveribus eorum, quos sustulit apoplexia [...] novae editioni accessit acutuarium historiarum et observa-tionum similum, Schaffhausen, Onophrius a Waldkirch, 1675 (16), 464 pages [sans les pages 319/320 comme d'habitude et sans manque]. Intéressante mise en recueil de l'époque du texte de Peyer avec la seconde édition (l'originale ayant paru en 1658) des Observationes de Wepfer qui constituent la première description de l'apoplexie comme une hémorragie cérébrale. Wepfer fut le professeur de Peyer et avec Brunner ils forment, ce que les historiens nommèrent, le trio de Schaffhausen. Les trois médecins mirent à profit une nouvelle méthodologie basée d'une part sur l'explication des symptômes par un recours aux lésions organiques comme sièges des pathologies, et d'autre part sur l'expérimentation animale pour l'étude de la physiologie des organes et les réactions médicamenteuses. Très bon exemplaire, en condition d'origine et ne portant que quelques faibles rousseurs. "Independently of Bartholin and Rudbeck, George Joyliffe (1621-58) observed the lymphatics. He communicated his discovery to Glisson early in 1652 and the latter included an account in the above work (Cap. xxxi). See No. 972. Includes a description of "Peyer's patches", the lymphoid follicles in the small intestine which have an important role in typhoid. They were first described by J. N. Pechlin (1644-1706) in his De purgantium medicamentorum facultatibus exercitatio nova (1672)."(G&M). Garrison-Morton 1100 ; Waller 7359 ; DSB X, pages 567-568.
