        Comets in the Northern Sky. "Motus Cometarum in Hemesphærio Boreali

      World Celestial & Curiosities: Nuremburg Homann Johann Baptiste c1760. Copper engraved map of the sky, from Doppelmayer's " Atlas Coelestis" original wash colour; verso blank. by Doppelmayer. The image is of the sky in the Northern hemisphere showing the courses of various comets. Each constellation is stunningly illustrated in 18th century German baroque style. The image is surrounded by text and diagrams describing the comets. Dark impression; wash colour to map; text and surround black & white as issued. 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.

      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.

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).

      BAMBERG, JOH. MARTINI SCHONWETTER, 1677 - 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. 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pharmacia in artis forman redacta, experimentis observationibus et discursu et discursu perpetuo illustrata.

      . Jena, bei Johannes Bielki für Samuel Krebs, 1677, 4°, (12), 245, (9) pp., schwarz/rot gedrucktes Titelblatt mit Vignette, feiner Pappband im Stil der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe! - Georg Wolfgang Wedel, "geboren am 13.November 1645 zu Golzen in der Niederlausitz. Den ersten Unterricht erhielt er in Schulpforta und bezog 1662 die Universität Jena, "wo er mit solchem Eifer seinen Studien oblag, daß der berühmte Rolfinck es nöthig befand, ihn vom übermäßigem Studieren abzuhalten". Nach fünfjährigem Universitätsbesuch begab er sich nach Landsberg und übte dort die ärztliche Praxis aus. Vorübergehend hielt er sich dann in Wittenberg und Leipzig auf und kehrte aber noch in demselben Jahre nach Jena zurück, wo er den medizinischen Doktorgrad erwarb. Zunächst als Landphysikus in Gotha tätig, reiste er später nach Holland und übernahm im Jahre 1673 in Jena eine Professur für Medizin. Aus seinen Vorlesungen (vergl. S.S. 1676 bis S.S.1721), die meisten die pharmazeutische Chemie betragen, geht hervor, daß er deren galenische Richtung vertrat. Zeitweise behandelte er aber auch die allgemeine Chemie unter Veranstaltungen praktischer Übungen, wobei ihm sein Lehrbuch als Leitfaden diente. Tortdem er zu den führenden Chemikern seiner Zeit zählte, war er doch noch überzeugt von den Lehren der Alchemie und der Möglichkeit der Metalltransmutationen, wie seine Arbeiten und sogar seine Vorlesungen (vgl. S.S. 1702) beweisen. Er starb am 7.September 1721. Seine zahlreichen Schriften sind ein beredetes Zeugniß von seinem Anteil an dem Ausbau der Iatrochemie ablegen."

With etched frontispiece and 6 etched folding plates by Romeyn de Hooghe. 19th-century boards.

      Adelung II, pp. 359-360; Landwehr, De Hooghe Book Illustrator 46; Muller, Bibl. Neerlando-Russe 200; Tiele, Bibl. 602; Verkruijsse, Romeyn de Hooghe 1677.04. First edition of a valuable account detailing a Dutch embassy to Russia (1675-1676). The objective was to gain Russian participation in the anti-Swedish and anti-French alliance, and Koenraad Klenk, with his expert knowledge of Russian language and culture, was the ideal choice to lead the embassy. The mission was subsidized with more than 50,000 guilders, an extraordinary amount which was even exceeded during the journey. Although the embassy was well received and the Russians were showered with gifts, Klenk failed to persuade the Tsar to enter into war with Sweden. The six impressively evocative plates by Romeyn de Hooghe are typical examples of his rich allegorical imagery. Final leaves restored, with the missing text supplied in manuscrip, some soling, binding worn. An excellent source for the history of Russia and its foreign relations during the reign of Tsar Aleksei Mikhailovich.

Erste und einzige Ausgabe des seltenen Werkes über Hämorrhoiden. - Johann Christian Frommann, Arzt (1623-1695) "Als zweiter Sohn des Professors am Casimirianum, späteren Direktors Andreas Frommann 1623 (12. März) in Coburg geboren, dehnte Johann Christian Frommann seine medizinisches und naturwissenschaftliches Studium reichlich aus. Doch fand er der hierbei Gelegenheit, Länder und Leute zu betrachten, ehe er sich auf heimischen Boden dauernd niederließ. Von 1643 ab war er ein Jahrzehnt lang unterwegs. Zu königsberg trat er in die akademische Lernzeit ein; auch die Universität Upsala wurde besucht, wobei er die Krönungsfeierlichkeiten der Königin Christine mitansah. Dann nahm er zeitweilig auf der Insel Oesel bei einem schwedischen Generalwachtmeister "Condition" an und ging hierauf weiter nach Livland, schließlich nach Dänemark; in Kopenhagen fand er zum einen bei einem Kaufmann "gute Station", zum anderen beteiligte er sich an Vorlesungen, Disputationen und anatomischen Sektionen. 1653 von den Eltern zurückgerufen, erwarb er auf dem Heimweg nach Jena den Grad eines Lizentiaten der Medizin; das Leipziger Doktorat folgte 1668 nach. In Coburg wurde er 1654 zum Landpyhsikus ernannt- Als "preßhaffte oder kranke leut" an ihn gewiesen werden sollten, ging dieser Befehl - hier ersieht man den damaligen Umfang des Landphysikats - nächst Coburg selbst hinaus nach Rodach, Römhild, Sonnefeld, Neustadt, Sonne-berg, Hildburghausen, Schalkau und Neuhaus- 1655 trat er die Professur for Physik am Gymnasium hinzu. Und 1680 wurde er außerdem fürstlicher Hof- und Leibarzt bei Herzog Albrecht. Der mit einer Tochter des Kanzlers Johann Jakob Drach Verheiratete war tätig bis zuletzt "auch in seinem hohen Alter und gehäufften Leibes-Beschwerungen". 1695 (19. August) wurde er in Coburg den irdischen Dingen entrückt. - Abgesehen von Disputationen reihte sich Johann Christian Frommann mit einer Anzahl medizinischer Fachschriften den gelehrten Ärzten ein. Auch verfaßte er mit historischer und naturwissenschaftlicher Gründlichkeit eine Arbeit über die Martinsgans und lieferte damit einen bemerkenswerten Beitrag zur Kulturgeschichte. - Akten über die Notifikation an alles Beamten wegen des bestellten Landmedikus Johann Christian Frommann, 1655.

The last treatise is by A. Vater and described the exotic plants in the Wittenberg Botanical Garden.//The first work together with an appendix published in 1691 describes the plants growing in the medical garden of Altdorf. It is illustrated with a fine double-page engraving 'Hortus Medicus Altdorffinus' showing the town of Altdorf at the rear and the botanical garden at the front. The garden consists of 4 sections with parterres, and one orangery, visitors are walking in the lanes.//The second work is an extensive catalogue of plants growing in the area of Altdorf. It gives location, the description of the plants and references to literature. The fine map 'Topographia Altdorfina et viciniae' shows towns, villages and rivers, to the east the town of Nuremberg and to the west Kassel.//The third work describes the months of flowering of the plants in the medical garden at Altdorf as well as indigenous plants in the area around Altdorf.//The fourth work describes plants growing in the area of the small village of Leimburg (near Altdorf).//The fifth work is by Joh. Jacob Baier (1677-1735) who was professor of medicine at the Altdorf university and president of the 'Acad. natur. Curios.' and director of the famous 'hortus medicus'. The botanical garden of Altdorf had been previously described by Moritz Hoffmann and in the present work by Baier numerous references are made to this former work. The work presents a history of the garden and is accompanied by an engraved map which is not present in our copy.//The sixth work by Abraham Vater (1684-1751) describes the exotic plants in the botanical garden of Wittenberg University. Vater was a professor of botany and anatomy and successor of J.H. Heucher who published the first catalogue in 1711 of the 'Hortus medicus'. A small supplement to the present work was published in 1724.//Pritzel 4156; 4157; 4158; 4159; 338; 9694.

        Opera posthuma, Quorum series post Praefationem exhibetur

      [Amsterdam:] [Jan Rieuwertsz,], 1677. Quarto (198 × 155 mm). Contemporary vellum over boards, with overlapping edges, spine hand lettered and dated in ink, sprinkled edges. Ownership inscription of Wolfgang Krämer dated 1916, with his ownership stamp and exlibris to free endpaper. Initials to each part supplied in red. Spine label sometime removed. A crisp, clean copy. First edition of Spinoza's Opera posthuma, including all his major philosophical writings, with the exception of the Tractatus Theologico-Politicus. "The Opera posthuma... include his Treatise on the Correction of the Understanding which was written during his residence near Leyden, the Ethics demonstrated according to the Geometrical Order, which is his most important work, and the Political Treatise... The most conspicuous idea of Spinoza's philosophy is that there is only one substance, the infinite divine substance which is identified with Nature; Deus sive Natura, God or Nature. And a striking feature of this philosophy as it is presented in the Ethics is the geometrical form of its presentation. This work is divided into five parts in which the following subjects are treated in turn: God, the nature and origin of the mind, the origin and nature of the emotions, the power of the intellect or human freedom" (Copleston, A History of Philosophy IV, p. 206). Like most copies of the Opera, this copy does not have the portrait, which was only issued after publication.

De sacrificiis libri duo microform : quorum altero explicantur omnia Judæorum, nonnulla gentium profanarum sacrificia : altero sacrificium Christi : utroque ecclesiæ Catholicæ his de rebus sententia contra Faustum Socinum, ejúsque sectatores defenditur / autore Guilielmo Outramo .

Highly important anti-Trinitarian text. Very Rare. No copies at auction in 30 years. Unitarians can trace their roots back to the 16th Century. The belief spread from Poland, to what was then Transylvania (Romania), through England and on to America where it especially thrived in New England. Michael Servetus seems to be considered the founder of the movement. Servetus a Roman Catholic Spanish physician escaped from the inquisition in France and went to Geneva. Here in 1553 he was burned alive after a three-month trial into his anti-Trinitarian beliefs. "Servetus discovered that in the uncorrupted Greek New Testament there was no text to justify the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. He published two books arguing that Christians should bring their views of God and Jesus into conformity with Jewish and Muslim monotheism. Hence the word "Unitarian" -- God as unity, or one" - Canadian Unitarian Council Website. These beliefs sometimes known as Sabellianism were to become known as Socianism after Italian born Faustus Socinus. He developed anti-Trinitarian belief into a more organised teaching. At this time he was living in Poland and his followers were sometimes called the Minor Reformed Church. Forced out of Poland again by persecution many merged with the Unitarians in Transylvania and from there the belief spread to England. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams, leaders of the American Revolution, were all Unitarians. Interestingly, this book also contains one of the earliest appearances of the word Holocaust, lending to the interesting debate surrounding its etymology. It is present here in a religious sense of sacrificial offering. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

While abroad he sent letters home, which contained, among other things, information on the gold, silver, and copper mines in Hungary, Transylvania, and Austria. Three of these letters were published in 'Philosophical Transactions'. It was Brown's father who encouraged him to adapt these letters for publication as books; 'A brief account of some travels in Hungaria, Servia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Thessaly, Austria, Styria, Carinthia, Carniola, and Friuli' (1673) and; 'An Account of Several Travels Through a Great Part of Germany (1677). , 4to , [2] 179 [1] pp .

""The author was the son of the distinguished physician, Sir Thomas Browne, and like his father was also a physician. As he had recommendations to people of the highest rank and learning, he had opportunities for observation superior to those of the ordinary traveller, who was generally in a hurry. He gives details of the manner of travelling usually omitted by the average man; he describes the sights to be seen in the light of their historical background. The working of the Hungarian and Austrian mines were then practically unknown to England, as were also some of the countries themselves he visited"" (Cox I, p. 88). & & ""Reports of these travels undoubtedly led to Newton's famous letter to Francis Aston, of May 18, 1669, on the eve of his departure to the continent. Newton's early chemical interests were certainly stimulated by Browne's reports on the quicksilver mines in Carinthia. Browne's two books are a mine of information on questions which interested early members of the Royal society"" (Babson 334). & & Wing B5109 & B5110; Hoover catalogue 172; Wellcome II, p. 251 (both titles bound together); Osler 4409; Kress S1385 (defective) & S1477; Babson 334 & 335; Cox I, P. 108 (giving incorrect date)."
