      Stampato ad instanza degli Amici 1677 Opera completa in tre volumi. Cm.14x7,8. Pg.(24), 552; (24), 552; (24), 552. Legature in mz.pergamena, con titoli impressi ai dorsi. Piatti marmorizzati e tagli spruzzati. Le coperte e i volumi sono interessati da numerose minuscole tarlature, che non inficiano la fruibilità del testo. Piano dell'Opera: "Parte prima. Nella quale si comprendono molte Satire, e Pasquinate uscite durante la Sede Vacante, l'Indice delle quali si vede dopo la Lettera al Lettore"; "Parte seconda. Nella quale si comprendono molte Satire, e Pasquinate uscite durante la Sede Vacante in Roma, e particolarmente si descrivono gli intrighi, e i rumori successi in Venetia nella creazione del Serenissimo Doge verso il fine d'Agosto del 1676. L'Indice di tutte le Materie segue dopo la Lettera al Lettore"; "Parte terza. Nella quale si descrivono molte curiosissime particolarità toccante la Corte di Roma, la guerra di Messina, e l'esaltatione dell'Eminentissimo Odescalchi al Triregno, col nome d'Innocentio XI. L'Indice di tutte le Materie segue dopo la Lettera al Lettore" Gregorio Leti (Milano, 29 maggio 1630 ?" Amsterdam, 1701), di famiglia aristocratica bolognese, dopo gli studi compiuti presso i Gesuiti, visse a Roma, Milano, Orvieto, Venezia, Bologna e Torino, per poi abbandonare l'Italia. Convertitosi al Calvinismo a Ginevra, passò poi in Francia, Inghilterra e Olanda, diventando uno dei maggiori storiografi del tempo. La presente costituisce una rara prima edizione di un'opera anticlericale, composta in occasione della morte di Papa Clemente X, nato Emilio Bonaventura Altieri (Roma, 13 luglio 1590 ?" Roma, 22 luglio 1676), 239º pontefice. Nel 1679 l'opera fu denunciata al Consiglio dei Duecento, che la reputò blasfema e la mise all'indice. Cadde sotto la scure dei giudici in particolare l'"Evangelium secundum Pasquinum", contenuto nella prima parte, rifacimento satirico del Vangelo di San Giovanni > Graesse, IV, 182. Melzi, III, 197, cita erroneamente una prima edizione del 1673, mentre la morte del Papa avvenne tre anni dopo

        Nouvelle relation en forme de journal d'un voyage fait en Egypte En 1672 EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez Estienne Michallet, 1677. Fine. Chez Estienne Michallet, à Paris 1677, In 12 (8,5x15,5cm), (16) 423pp. (17), relié. - 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. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare et précieuse. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Ensemble épidermé. Manques aux mors en coiffe de tête ; et de queue pour le mors supérieur. Un coin émoussé. Importante relation pour la connaisance occidentale de l'Egypte. Vansleb, philologue et théologien allemand, se mit au service de Colbert pour un voyage projeté en Ethiopie, mais il n'alla jamais plus loin que l'Egypte, où il passa 20 mois à observer et collecter des informations, multipliant les excursions et voyages. Vansleb ne revient jamais sur les descriptions qui ont déjà été faites par d'autres (les pyramides), conscient de livrer à ses lecteurs des informations entièrement neuves. Si ce n'est pas la première relation sur l'Egypte, c'est la première d'un homme résidant longtemps dans le pays ; c'est de toutes façons une des premières, mais la toute première de cette façon. L'auteur s'était déjà rendu une première fois en Egypte, il en avait tiré une narration en Italien, mais il ne possédait pas cette connaissance de l'arabe qui lui permet le contact avec la population, et il n'était pas demeuré dans le pays.

        Cosmography in four books. Containing the Chorography and History of the whole World: and all the Principal Kingdoms, Provinces, Seas, and Isles thereof... [engraved title:] The 5th Edition, Corrected & Inlarged by the Author

      London: Printed by A.C. for P. Chetwind, and A. Seile.., 1677. Folio, printed title in red and black, with an additional engraved title and four folding maps (maps cut close at some edges due to their large size compared with the text block); contemporary dark sprinkled calf. "A new and strange Adventure, which no Knight Errant ever undertook before" Fifth edition, complete with the important appendix. Heylyn, the seventeenth-century theologian and historian, is said to have written his Cosmography after a stranger had advised him that 'Geography is better than divinity'. First published in 1652 under this title (see catalogue number 30 for the earlier work, Microcosmos, that led to it), it is a huge, wide-ranging description of the known world illustrated with four good engraved maps (Europe, Africa, Asia and North America, the last showing California as an island).The appendix, running to six pages, has its own title-page ("An Appendix to the Former Work, Endeavouring a Discovery of the unknown Parts of the World: especially of Terra Australis Incognita, or the Southern Continent"). This supplementary chapter, which discusses real and imaginary Australian voyages, did not appear in the earliest editions, and is not present in all copies of the later editions (it is for example not present in the copy described by Mendelssohn) and is a bizarre and surprisingly unnoticed text on the southern continent. Heylyn begins: 'And here we are upon a new and strange Adventure, which no Knight Errant ever undertook before...'.He continues by discussing "Terra Australis Incognita", which is probably (on the counterpoise theory) as large as Europe, Asia, and Africa, and its potential: 'The country being so large, so free from the Incumbrances of Frost and Ice, and endless Winters; I have oft marvelled with my self that no further hath been made in Discovery of it...'.He then discusses the voyages of Magellan, Le Maire, Hawkins, and Quiros, among others, with special sections devoted to Tierra del Fuego, the Solomon Islands and New Guinea. In a final, tongue-in-cheek, section he concludes that all that is needed by the student of the southern continent is more information; so, rather than 'troubling the Vice-Royes of Peru, and Mexico, or taking out a Commission for a new Discovery' he examines instead the various utopias that have been written with the southern continent as a setting. He starts with Hall's Mundus Alter and deals with More, Bacon, and others.An interesting, rare, and early discussion of the southern continent theory, bringing together actual discoveries and utopian fiction, and aptly demonstrating the muddled thinking surrounding the whole question during the seventeenth century.

        Movement of Venus & Mercury. "Phænomena Motuum Irregularuim Venus et Mercurius

      World Celestial & Curiosities: Nuremburg Homann Johann Baptiste c1760. Copper engraved map showing the irregular movement of Venus And Mercury, from Doppelmayer's " Atlas Coelestis" original wash colour; verso blank. Astronomical chart showing the course of the planets Venus and Mercury around the sun.; detailed text and astronomical diagrams. The planets are illustrated in a vignette as allagorical figures in chariots; Venus accompaanied by the moon in a chariot drawn by three pairs of horses; Mercury's chariot driven by a putti is drawn by two birds; Zeus sits astride the sun. Dark impression; bright colour. Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677 - 1750) Doppelmayr was born in Nuremberg to a merchant family. He attended the Aegidien-Gymnasium and the University of Altdorf where he studied mathematics, physics, and law. His graduating dissertation, a study of the Sun, suggests an early interest in Astronomy. Following his studies in Altdorf, Doppelmayr traveled extensively in Europe and is known to have spent time at the University of Halle, as well as in Utrecht, Leiden, Oxford, and London. He returned to Nuremburg in 1704 to take up a mathematics professorship at his alma mater, the Aegidien-Gymnasium. It may have been here that he developed a relationship with the prominent Nuremburg map publisher J. B. Homann, with whom he prepared a number of important astronomical maps and atlases. The collaboration of over 20 years eventually led to the publication of the "Atlas Coelestis" in 1742. This astounding work was the most elaborate and detailed astronomical atlas yet published and is today much admired for its rich beautifully engraved plates Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad.

The most important and comprehensive collection of Swedish proverbs in older times. Even though some of the proverbs and stock phrases are Grubb's own translations, the collection is unvaluable from a ethnological perspective. David Pontin defended a doctor's thesis for Linnaeus in 1759 and on his teacher's recommendation he thereafter worked as a chaplain on one of the Swedish East India Company's voyages to China in 1760. He eventually became a dean in Östergötland in the southeastern part of Sweden. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Natural History of Oxfordshire, being an Essay toward the Natural History of England.

      Printed at the Theater in Oxford ; And in London : At Mr. S. Millers ., Oxford 1677 - Hardcover. Folio. [xii] + 360pp. + [x] [index]. Beautiful full period-style leather binding by Bernard C. Middleton. Panelled brown calf; raised bands & gilt titling to spine, intricate blind tooled decorations to boards. Engraved title-page vignette, headpiece and decorative initial, and 16 full-page engraved plates by Michael Burghers. The author, Robert Plot (1640 – 1696) was an academic, antiquarian and naturalist, who graduated from Magdalen Hall, Oxford in 1658, and subesequently became its dean and vice principal before moving to University College in 1676. An enthusiastic antiquarian and polymath, he scoured the local countryside collecting antiquities and cataloguing his finds and observations; gathering the material that would form the basis of "The Natural History of Oxfordshire." At the time the notion of "natural history" was much broader then, and rather than having the modern emphasis on plants and animals, Plot was more concerned with geographical and geological features, although his observations covered all things natural, as well as a number that might be considered not (ie human activities, man-made phenomena, etc.). Some indication of this diversity can be seen in his chapter headings: "Of the Heavens and Air," "Of the Waters," "Of the Earths," "Of Stones," "Of Formed Stones," "Of Plants," "Of Brutes," "Of Men and Women" "Of Arts" and "Of Antiquities." Plot seemed to have a special eye for the curious and bizarre, and included many anomalous objects. His work is largely remembered on account of this, and also as being, it is said, the first book to publish an illustration of a dinosaur bone, although he misidentified it as the bone of some ancient (human) giant. He also devoted a chapter to what he called "formed stones" - objects that resembled human or animal body parts, but while he allowed that some of these might be fossils (a term and concept just coming into vogue) he argued that others were deliberately-fashioned objects, a part of some Divine plan. In addition to being appointed the first keeper of Ashmolean Museum in 1683, Plot was also made the First Professor of Chemistry at Oxford, in the charge of the new laboratory that was housed in the same building, which must have been especially useful as he is said to have been a practicing alchemist. The pre-title page (Imprimatur - facing the title page) has the date April 13, 1676, which has apparently caused some cataloguers to refer to it as 1676 publication, whereas the actual year of publication is that on the title-page, 1677. From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the front free endpaper. The large folding map of Oxfordshire is missing - as seems to be the case with most copys. Pre-title and title-page a little dusty and with a few light marks to the margins. Faint pale tide- marks to top-corners of title-page and a few subsequent leaves, some very modest wrinkling - heaviest at the pre-title, still a very handsome, otherwise clean copy in VG+ antiquarian condition.

      BAMBERG, JOH. MARTINI SCHONWETTER, 1677esemplare con forti ossidazioni a molte carte Legatura coeva in piena pergamena ITALIANO Legatura coeva in piena pergamena coeva, titolo e fregi manoscritti al dorso; nota ottocentesca manoscritta al contropiatto anteriore. 18 pagine non numerate, compresi l'elegante quanto complessa antiporta figurata incisa su rame, il frontespizio con titolo e antico timbro di collezione privata con firma sovrapposta "Carletti"; 538 pagine numerate; 14 pagine non numerate di indici; all'interno, XXV tavole fuori testo  incise su rame, incollate e ripiegate ai bordi della pagina corrispondente. Schott fu  gesuita e professore di matematica, studiò sotto la supervisione dello scienziato Athanasius Kircher presso l'università di Würzburg. È noto a livello scientifico principalmente grazie ai suoi studi fisici concernenti i principi della meccanica; perfeziona poi le bacchette moltiplicatrici di Nepero, apportando un piccolo contributo a quello che può essere considerato un prototipo di macchina aritmetica. I suoi interessi scientifici vengono allora contaminati da una forte tendenza al misterico; da questa sperimentazione nasce "Physica Curiosa", il suo testo più celebre. L'opera in esame è la sola prima parte di un poderoso lavoro, e la sezione in esame riguarda l'ottica a cui Schott dedicò molti studi, in particolare alla camera oscura seguendo le orme di Keplero. Il lavoro di Keplero sulla camera oscura gli permise di risolvere uno dei più importanti enigmi sull'ottica del tempo: il funzionamento dell'occhio,  con l'immagine capovolta formata sulla retina. Egli correttamente confrontò la camera oscura con l'occhio partendo dall'idea che  Leonardo da Vinci aveva nell'identificare il ruolo della lente e la retina. Questo esperimento fu realizzato nel 1657 da  Kaspar Schott, con l'occhio di un bue. Come sappiamo, l'immagine sulla retina non è destinato ad essere 'visto' ma viene inviato attraverso il nervo ottico al cervello, dove viene tradotto. Esemplare con forti ossidazioni a molte pagine, dovute alla scadente qualità della carta.

        Deleytar aprovechando, por el maestro. A la Excelentissima señora doña María de los Remedios y la Cueva, condesa de Fuensalida y Virreyna de Navarra

Primera edición con cambio de portada, colofón con fecha de 1635. Rara.

Portada y colofón con refuerzos marginales sin afectar texto. Papel algo amarronado. “En Deleytar aprovechando Tirso de Molina saca a la luz un conjunto heterogéneo de obras con el que nos confirma el sesgo que toma su producción literaria. Si leída al azar entre el conjunto de obras tirsianas, Deleytar aprovechando se nos manifiesta como obra de sentido atípico, observada en el proceso evolutivo de su escritura, aparecerá como ruptura y retorno simultáneamente. Ruptura por lo que supone abandono casi definitivo de los escenarios, y retorno en la vuelta a los orígenes, tanto ideológicos como temáticos, de su literatura.” [La miscelánea en Deleytar aprovechando. Reflejo de una coyuntura tirsiana. José Miguel Oltra] Palau, 329484 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Contemporary boards with later rebacking which has failed, spine worn and chipped with loss at the head, front board detached along with the free endpaper. Mild browning internally, first signatures loose, scattered minor stains, generally quite clean. With an inscription from Christopher Morley and his wife Helen to his friends Martin and Elsie Hawley Mclanahan dated Christmas 1922. Lacking the portrait which is sometimes present (especially in the editions paired with his Receipts in Chirurgery). (iv), 251, (9)pp. Cagle 646, Bitting 124 (1669 1st ed.), Simon 502 (1st ed.) Morley and Mclanahan had a long friendship centering on food and wine - writes Morley: "I have scoured the town, dear Caliph, for a Closet of Sir Kenelm Digby". Morley had purloined the name Kenelm Digby for his detective story "The Curious Case of Kenelm Digby" originally collected in "Tales from a Rolltop Desk" (1921). Digby was one of the great travelers of his age and spoke a reputed 10 or 12 languages, this is largely a collection from his travels and is more representative of European cookery than a usual English cookbook. Of Digby, John Aubrey said "had he been drop't out of the clowdes in any part of the world, he would have made himselfe respected." And Elizabeth David: "His book is a beautiful piece of English kitchen literature as well as a collection of recipes set down with considerable accuracy." Size: 12mo (duodecimo).
