        Nouvelle relation en forme de journal, d'un voyage fait en Egypte. En 1672. & 1673

      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). ESTC R203065; Wing O572; Madan 2513; Taylor 259.

        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.

        Palestra farmaceutica, chimico-galenica, en la qual se trata de la eleccion de los simples, sus preparaciones chîmicas, y galénicas, y de las mas selectas composiciones antiguas, y modernas, usuales, tanto en Madrid, como en toda Europa.Madrid, widow of D. 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.

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.

        Description et détails des Arts du meunier, du vermicelier et du boulenger; avec une Histoire abrégée de la Boulengerie, & un Dictionnaire de ces Arts.

      [Paris: Desaint et Saillant], 1677.In-folio; iv (Titre, Table), 340p.; 10 planches gravées. Broché sous couvertures d'attente en papier gris, titre manuscrit (très pâle) sur le premier plat. Une vingtaine de feuillets présentent des petites taches de moisissure, essentiellement marginales, sans gravité. Bon exemplaire néanmoins. Trois parties à pagination continue, précédées de l' "Histoire abregée de l'origine et des progrès de la boulengerie, et de la meunerie" et se terminant par un vocabulaire/dictionnaire des arts du meunier, du vermicelier et du boulanger qui sert également de table des matières. Monographie rédigée dans le cadre de la "Description des Arts et Métiers", remarquable inventaire préparé depuis la fin du XVIIème siècle sous la houlette de l'Académie des Sciences et qui ne fut effectivement publié qu'à partir de 1761. La publication fut définitivement arrêtée en 1789 après avoir produit 113 sections ou cahiers largement illustrés décrivant quelque 74 arts et métiers, et "constituent peut-être le plus précieux inventaire à disposition pour l'étude de l'artisanat et des techniques à la naissance de la Révolution industrielle". (Armand Brulhart, "En Français dans le texte").

      [London: printed for Robert White, T. Basset, [et al.], and T. Sawbridge, 1677. Folio, pp. [4], 54 (i.e. 48 - Life), [42] (preface and table of contents), 660, 577-885, [1], [46] (tables and index); including 'The Minde of the Front' (a preliminary verse ascribed to Ben Jonson), a printed title page in red and black, 26 pages of chronological tables at the back, plus a number of woodcut ornaments and initials in the text; inserted is an engraved portrait of Raleigh, an engraved title page dated 1676, and 8 engraved double-page maps and plans by William Hole, occasional worming, largely confined to the margins of the preface, mild dampstain at the top margins of the first ten leaves; all else quite nice in recent full calf, red morocco label. Raleigh's last book written during his imprisonment in the Tower between 1607 and 1614. He completed only the first volume. "The design and style of Raleigh's History of the World...places the book among the noblest of literary enterprises" (DNB). At least ten folio editions appeared from 1614 to 1687. "After its publication in 1614, the king endeavoured to suppress it...This was not carried into effect, as the work was published [and] three separate issues of it appeared the same year. But [the first] and the second edition of 1617 were destitute of [printed] title-pages; and as these alone contained the name of the author, the work was virtually anonymous" (Brushfield). Armitage 46; Brushfield 223J: "The believed to have been written by John Shirley."

      London: by J.M. for the Booksellers in London, 1677. Important first edition. With fine provenance, coming from the Wrest Park library of Thomas Philip Earl de Grey, The Lord Grantham from 1786 to 1833, a British Tory politician and statesman, who held office as first Lord of the Admiralty till April 1835, and was a Knight of the Garter. The front paste-down with his engraved armorial bookplate. Later arts and crafts style bookplate of David Laing Philips. With both the imprimatur leaf and final leaf with the printer's note to the reader included; these are often lacking. Folio, handsomely bound in contemporary full calf, sometime ago expertly restored where some loss occurred at the tips or edges, virtually all of the original leather still intact and present, the original spine panel with gilt tooled compartments between wide raised bands, gilt ruled, one compartment with a brown morocco label gilt lettered, the fore-edge with brass clasps still functional, board edges gilt tooled, marbled endpapers. (16), 346, (4) pp. A beautifully preserved copy, the text very fresh, crisp, and especially clean. The calf aged and restored as noted, the binding solid and handsome VERY RARE IN ORIGINAL BINDING. FIRST EDITION AND AN ESPECIALLY SCARCE EARLY WORK DEBUNKING WITCHCRAFT AND RECOGNIZING THE SUPERNATURAL AS PSYCHOLOGICAL PHENOMENA. Webster (1610-1682), had been chaplain and surgeon in the Parliamentary army. He is probably best known for his book entitled Metallographia (1671) which is one of the earliest English works on metallurgy, and based on his experience as a practicing metallurgist in Lancashire. During a time when James 1 had rekindled the belief in demoniacal intervention and possession John Cotta had bravely showed that even otherwise mysterious symptoms did not require invocation of supernatural agencies but could be caused by "the imaginarie". A similar wave of superstition followed after the Restoration, which saw not only a recrudescence of attributing "natural diseases, distempers, and accidents to Witches and Witchcraft", but also to increased demand for cures by "Charms, Pictures, Ceremonies." It was then that John Webster went one step further than Cotta, and showed it was unnecessary to credit supernatural forces even for the effect of charms and incantations, since their "causality and efficiency is solely in the person imaginant and confident of receiving help." It is remarkable to see such an accurate early description of the psychosomatic effect, Webster recognized psychological phenomena which was not fully studied until the later nineteenth century as suggestibility and suggestion, especially under hypnosis.
