        Tractatus de homine, et de formatione foetus... Notis perpetuis Ludovici de la Forge, M. D. illustratur.

      Daniel Elzevir 1677 In 8° (196x143); carte numerate 37, pagg. 239. Frontespizio con marca tipografica, titolo in rosso e nero. Numerose tavole di carattere anatomico xilografiche nel testo, fedeli ai disegni eseguiti da Cartesio e preparate da Louis de La Forge, curatore dell'opera, e Gérard van Gutschoven. Piena pergamena rigida coeva con dorso a 5 nervi, titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli marmorizzati. Edizione latina (l'originale francese apparve nel 1664, mentre la prima latina è del 1662; la nostra è la terza, prima con le note di La Forge) di questa fondamentale opera, la prima in cui si tenta di spiegare la fisiologia del corpo umano. La prefazione è di Claude Clerselier discepolo dello scienziato. Cartesio (La Haye 1596- Stoccolma 1650) fu uno dei massimi esponenti della filosofia meccanica; egli diede l'avvio al meccanicismo biologico degli iatromeccanici ed alla progressiva sostituzione con chimica e fisica dei principi della tradizione vitalistica; considera il corpo umano come una macchina guidata da un'anima razionale, situata nella ghiandola pineale, che controlla le funzioni dei movimenti: ad esempio i pensieri vengono trasformati in azioni e parole, mentre altre azioni "semplici"come sbadigli, contrazioni della pupilla, respirazione, deglutizione sono azioni ordinarie che dipendono "dal corso degli spiriti "che "sono posti come venticelli sottili nei nervi"; egli riconobbe l'importanza della scoperta di Harvey sulla circolazione sanguigna, ma non credette al fatto che il cuore potesse con le sue contrazioni pulsare il sangue in tutto l'organismo; credeva invece che il calore fosse originato dal cuore attraverso un processo naturale, che faceva lavorare la macchina umana. Alla fine del testo vi è un piccolo trattato descrittivo sul feto. Bell'esemplare, lievi aloni marginali alle prime carte, alcune pagg. arrossate, saltuarie fioriture. Normali tracce d'uso alla pergamena. Krivatsy, 3124. per l'edizione del 1686. Garrison-Morton : " This book was the first attempt to over the whole field of animal physiology ."

I denna andra upplaga återfinns för övrigt ett tryckfel av det mer pikanta slaget: i talesättet "Bondebruk/ är ingen barnaleek" har "bruk" genom ett ödets nyck råkat bli "kuk". I detta exemplar är tryckfelet överstruket och rättat med bläck. De många anteckningarna i marginalerna utgörs av ytterligare många ordspråksexempel och kommentarer. För en person som L. F. Rääf, vars intresse för historia och muntliga traditioner är välkänt, bör arbetet ha kunnat tjäna som ett referensverk och åtminstone fyra exemplar fanns i hans bibliotek

      Joan. Ant. Huguetan Lugduni (Lyon): Joan. Ant. Huguetan, 1677. Hardcover. fair. Octavo. [28], 807, [18]pp. Original full vellum with contemporary handwritten title on spine. Engraved pictorial frontispiece. Title-page in red and black lettering with engraved vignette. Decorative initials and headpieces. Engraved portrait of Thomas Bartholin. This edition of Bartholin's famous anatomy printed in Lyon follows in all essentials the so-called 4th edition printed in Leiden in 1673. These two editions are the largest published of Bartholin's anatomy, containing 40 more engravings than the preceding editions. Includes 14 plates (12 folding), 97 labeled plates or "tabula" in the text plus 5 additional illustrations not labeled as "tabula". There are 3 instances where the sequential numbering of tabula might normally indicate a missing illustration (XXXII before page 212, XLIX before page 296, and VIII before page 754). In each case, we believe the book complete, and each a case of simple mislabeling and the inconsistent treatment of folding plate numbering. Some edge wear on binding with head of spine chipped, and minor soiling and foxing on boards and spine. Front hinge starting. Some damp-staining on outer margin of pages. Sporadic foxing throughout. Worming between pp 745-775. Text in Latin. Binding in overall good, interior in fair to good condition.

        Della famosissima Compagnia della Lesina. Dialogo, capitoli e ragionamenti.

      presso S.Curti 1677 Con l'assottigliamento in tredici punture della punta d'essa lesina, alla quale si è rifatto il manico, in trenta modi e doppo quelli in venti altri. Si danno cinquantacinque Ricordi di Filocerdo de' Risparmiatori, tredici Spaghi di m. Uncino Tanaglia, la Cassettina da riporvi la lesina, et utilissimi precetti della Compagnia a' suoi mas-sai. Con la nuova aggiunta del modo di ricevere li novitij, delle pene a' cattivi lesinanti, di tre Consulti alle matrone per entrare in queste Compagnie e degli avvertimenti sopra le malitie de' contadini. Post'insieme dall'Academico Speculativo e raccolti dallo Economo della Spilorceria.

Divertente e curiosa op. sull'avarizia, con dedicatoria "a m.Unguento da Cancheri in lode dalla Compagnia della Lesina di m.Quamcunque Spillaccheri", che in questa ediz. comprende numerose aggiunte (punture della lesina, manici, spaghi etc.) costituite da centinaia di stratagemmi, per lo più bizzarri, ma anche con validi consigli gastronomici e salutistici, fermamente subordinati alla regola del risparmio, come ad es. tra i "manici" che "il Parco" dedicava a "Frangiloso Bevil'acqua": "Manico II: Essendosi sperimentato che i zoccoli conservano la sanità della persona e delle scarpe, si ordina ch'ogn'un della Compagnia li debba usare, particolarmente l'inverno..."(p.95) e per la frutta: "Manico XXI: Uve, fichi, pera, prugni e altri simili frutti non se ne comprino mai su'l principio de' tempi loro, perché non hanno ancor ricevuto la lor piena perfetione e generano cattivi humori, ma si permettono su la metà della stagione, quando si vendono a peso per ogni canto-ne..."(p.103). Dopo la dedicatoria e la tavola dell'indice, sono elencati gli pseudonimi degli "officiali della Compagnia della Lesina" con divertenti nomi: Brancazio Spilorcioni, Pittocco Rastrelli, etc. Al termine della 1°parte: "Stanze e un sonetto sopra la peste del poeta Sciarra - fiorentino" (Piero Strozzi) (pp.260-264). In questa ediz. vennero aggiunti la "Continuazione de gli Ordini et Capitoli della Compagnia della Lesina", con front. proprio e numeraz. progressiva (pp.265-324) e il "Consulto delle matrone, seconda additione agli or-dini e capitoli della Compagnia della Lesina..." con solo occh. e numer. progressiva (p.325) che contiene il "Consulto..."(in 3 parti); "Ragionamento del Pensabene Pelicani sostituito per ammaestrare li novitij..."(p.400); "Ragionamento del medemo Pensabene sostituito nelle cure dei già nominati novitij lesinanti, sopra le malitie de'contadini"(p.421). [Vinciana 3501 questa ediz. (anche questa mancante del-l'ult. c.b.) e ancora Vinciana 3495-3507 cita altre ediz. e in 3495-nota: "Umoristici statuti di un'immaginaria Accademia o Compagnia di taccagni con sede in Firenze; la compagnia si prefiggeva di canzonare lo spirito "sparagnino" e di consigliare grettissime economie, non-chè di raccontare burlesche avventure di noti e ignoti arpagoni... In fine si trovano le "Stanze" parodistiche dei poemi cavallereschi e un sonetto sopra la peste del "poeta Sciarra - fiorentino" pseud. del famoso Pietro Strozzi, insigne capitano e cugino di Caterina de' Medici.

Första upplagan utkom 1665. Med hyllningsverser av Johan Widekindi och Johannes Secundus. Titelbladet till Törners tillägg är i detta exemplar bundet före det opaginerade förordet. Den viktigaste och mest omfattande svenska ordspråkssamlingen i äldre tid. Även om en del av ordspråken och talesätten är Grubbs egna översättningar är samlingen ur ett etnologisk och mentalitetshistoriskt perspektiv ovärderlig. Samtidigt kan talesätten uppskattas som ögonblicksbilder av ett många gånger bistert 1600-tal: "ny läkiare/ ny kyrckegård". I denna andra upplaga återfinns för övrigt ett tryckfel av det mer pikanta slaget: i talesättet "Bondebruk/ är ingen barnaleek" har "bruk" genom ett ödets nyck råkat bli "kuk". I detta exemplar är tryckfelet bortskrapat och rättat. David Pontin disputerade 1759 för Linné och följde därefter på sin lärares rekommendationer med på en av Ostindiska kompaniets resor som skeppspräst 1760 och slutade sina dagar som präst i Östergötland. Johan Wallman, magister i Linköping, var god vän med L. F. Rääf och hjälpte honom på 1810-talet med uppteckningar av folkvisor. Hans senare publicerade uppsatser i "Iduna" karaktäriseras av djärva spekulationer om den nordiska forntiden vilka enligt Wretö alla vann Rääfs gillande

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

      A Paris: Chez Frederic Leonard, 1677. relié. Fort in 12 (7,5x13,8cm). Edition en partie originale, rare, bien préférable à l'originale de 1676 qui ne contient que la première partie ; celle-ci se trouve donc considérablement augmentée par des pièces majeures. Un frontispice représentant la place Saint-Marc de Venise. L'édition de 1677 contient 3 titres pour chaque partie plus un titre ajouté résumant le tout ; on s'apercevra aisément qu'on trouve très rarement réuni ces trois parties dans les bibliothèques (voir Oxford, Leeds...), et qu'elles apparaissent le plus souvent séparément. Sans doute y eut-il plusieurs éditions à cette date de 1677, dont seule celle-ci contient les trois parties. Par ailleurs cette édition à la Sphère porterait à croire qu'elle fut imprimée ailleurs ; la troisième partie porte Ratisbone comme lieu d'édition et Jean Aubry pour éditeur. Cette partie contient la Harangue de Louis Helian, Ambassadeur de France sous Louis XII. Plein Veau glacé brun d'époque. Dos à nerfs muet orné de roulettes à froid sur les coiffes et les nerfs. Filets à froid sur les plats. Bon exemplaire. Plus qu'une histoire de Venise, il s'agit d'une étude critique de ses institutions et de ses lois. Le livre fut fort mal reçu à Venise où on le brûla, les relations diplomatiques avec la France s'envenimèrent, et le roi de France fut plus ou moins contraint de livrer l'auteur à la Bastille (pour six jours) pour satisfaire Venise. L'oeuvre conduit donc à une réflexion politique sur la liberté de la république de Venise, le chapitre sur l'inquisition vénitienne est à ce titre éloquent. Le supplément étudie et conte les différends qu'eut la République avec le pape Paul V. La troisième partie du livre est une traduction d'un livre de Fra Paolo. La Harangue de Louis Hélian fut prononcée en 1510 devant l'empereur Maximilien, elle accuse très vertement la république de Venise de nombreux maux. - Chez Frederic Leonard, A Paris _1677, Fort in 12 (7,5x13,8cm), (26) 550pp; (2) ; 237pp; (3) ; (12) 211pp. (39), relié. - relié

        The Present State of New-England. Being a Narrative of the Troubles with the Indians

      London: Thomas Parkhurst, 1677. 4to., (7 6/8 x 5 6/8 inches). EXCEPTIONALLY FINE, AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE, WOODCUT MAP OF NEW-ENGLAND (framed separately 12 x 15 4/8 inches), THE SECOND ISSUE WITH WHITE HILLS MIS-TRANSCRIBED AS "WINE HILLS", oriented to the south and depicting New England settlements in all three colonies, from New Haven, Connecticut to Pemaquid, Maine and as far inland as Deerfield and the White Hills. Contemporary sheep (rebacked preserving the original spine (a few surface scrapes, corners a bit worn, free endpapers renewed); preserved in a modern brown morocco backed slipcase and chemise. Provenance: with the pen trials Richard Wiyeth on the preliminaries and last leaves, dated 1699; with the engraved bookplate of Charles Lemuel Nichols M.D. (1851-1929), prominent Worcester physician and member of the American Antiquarian Society. Second overall edition, first edition to be published in London and with the second edition of THE EARLIEST MAP TO BE PRINTED IN AMERICA, first printed and published in America, in the same year, by John Foster of Dorchester, Massachusetts. The map's contents are based on the manuscripts of William Reed, who relied heavily on information collected by members of the Massachusetts General Court's 1652 exploratory expedition. Reed might have also drawn upon the findings of Charles II's 1664 state-sponsored expedition of New England. Foster was born in 1648, and graduated from Harvard in 1667. Though Foster initially found work as a teacher, he eventually pursued a career as an engraver. He also became Boston's first printer after acquiring Marmaduke Johnson's printing press in 1675. Though a 1664 act of the Massachusetts General Court had forbade all printing outside of Cambridge, by 1674 it had granted Foster the right to commence printing in Boston. Foster died of tuberculosis at the age of thirty-three. "A Map of New-England" was originally produced to accompany the text of Reverend William Hubbard's historical work, "A Narrative of the Troubles with the Indians in New England", as here. The Massachusetts General Court sanctioned the printing of Hubbard's work on March 29, 1677. Hubbard was born in Essex, England, but like Foster had graduated from Harvard. Hubbard also served as President of Harvard College and minister of the church of Ipswich. Hubbard's "Narrative ..." no doubt constituted his most significant literary accomplishment. The work was devoted to narrating the history of King Philip's War, a violent conflict between southern New England Native Americans and English colonists that spanned the years of 1675 and 1676. Thus, several of the cities featured on the map correspond directly to events narrated in Hubbard's work, and all numbers seen on the chart refer to specific pages of the author's text. This finely rendered and rare map remains integral to any study of American printing. Moreover, it depicts regions associated with one of the colonial era's most significant and destructive Anglo-Indian wars. Philip D.

        A NARRATIVE OF THE TROUBLES WITH THE INDIANS IN NEW-ENGLAND, FROM THE FIRST PLANTING THEREOF IN THE YEAR 1607, TO THIS PRESENT YEAR 1677. BUT CHIEFLY OF THE LATE TROUBLES IN THE TWO LAST YEARS, 1675 AND 1676. TO WHICH IS ADDED A DISCOURSE ABOUT THE WARRE

      Boston: Printed by John Foster, 1677.. [14],132,[8],7-12,[2],88pp., including several pagination errors. Map supplied in facsimile. Small quarto. Sumptuously bound in 19th century blue morocco by Pawson and Nicholson, with elaborately gilt boards and spine, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Bookplates on front pastedown, early ownership signature and notes (see below). Small chips in edges of titlepage. Trimmed close, occasionally touching a page number, running title, or catchword. Occasional staining. One leaf supplied from the London, 1677 edition (see below), map supplied in facsimile. Withal, still a very good copy. The very rare first edition, printed in Boston, of William Hubbard's crucially important history of the Indian wars of New England, a cornerstone Americanum. A London edition followed, published in the same year. Hubbard was born in England and came to the colonies in 1635, eventually becoming pastor of the church in Ipswich, Massachusetts. He was closely involved in the government of the colony during King Philip's War and this work, along with those of Increase and Cotton Mather, is the best and fullest account of the events of the struggle in Massachusetts. Hubbard and Increase Mather differed with each other on a number of points, and this book seems to have ignited the envy of the latter. "[Hubbard] was distinguished, in an age and country of bigots, for his liberality, moderation, and piety, and his narrative has always been regarded as authoritative by historians" - Church. This copy is without the incredibly rare map of New England by John Foster, the first map printed in English America, supplied here in facsimile. Of the fifty copies of the Boston printing of the book examined by Randolph G. Adams, more than half were missing the map. This is one of the first books printed in Boston, as all printing in the British colonies up to 1676 had been done in neighboring Cambridge. Most bibliographers refer to two "issues" of this 1677 Boston edition. This is the presumed "second issue" of Hubbard's work, with the twelve-line errata on the verso of the final text leaf (other copies are known with a ten-line errata) and with extra leaves in the M signature of the first part (see Church for these and other details). Adams, however, takes the "issue" question many steps further by pointing out that there are as many as twenty-five variant "issues" of the Boston printing of the text. The first two pages of the unpaginated eight- page section in the middle of the text, "A Table shewing the Towns and Places which are inhabited by the English in New- England," have been supplied in this copy from a copy of the 1677 London edition. Two leaves from that London edition have been joined together to make a new single leaf (resulting in a thicker sheet of paper), so that the text begins on the recto of the leaf signed * (rather than "T" as in the Boston edition), continues onto the verso of the made-up leaf, and then properly continues onto the leaf signed T2 of the Boston printing. This copy bears a long and distinguished provenance, having the early ownership signature of the antiquarian and editor, John Farmer, on the first page of the text, and several manuscript notes of a historical nature throughout. It also bears the bookplates of E. Stanley Hart and Roderick Terry (one of the most famous American book collectors of the early 20th century) on the front pastedown. Randolph Adams lists this copy in his study of Hubbard's work, and notes that it was also owned by the printer Theodore Low DeVinne (a founder of the Grolier Club), and by William W. Cohen. Adams further notes that this copy was probably the one used by Samuel G. Drake in editing his 1865 edition of the book. A remarkably important work, one of the earliest such histories written and published in the colonies, here in the very rare Boston first edition. EVANS 231. NAIP w013814. CHURCH 650.

      Linage de Vauciennes. 1-3. Köln, chez Pierre du Marteau, 1677. 12:o. (24),+ 427; 477; 496 pp. Genomgående med fläckar, bläckunderstrykningar och enstaka marginalanteckningar. Bläckfläck s. 15 och 388-389 i första delen liksom litet mashål genom sid 21-28, med delbokstavsförlust, och en reva sid 123-124, andra delen med bläckfläck titelbladet och sid. 55-56, reva 29-30 och fuktfläck sid 27-30, tredje delen med svag fuktrand nedtill sid. 23-50. Nötta samtida skinnband, guldornerade men oxiderade ryggar med upphöjda bind och röda titeletiketter. Tre volymer. Volym tre med skada på övre kapitäl. Namnteckningar i bläck på titelbladen, bl.a. Carl Carsell. Trevliga band men fläckiga inlagor. Warmholtz 8322. Willems 1910. Berghman 1797. Med titelbladet i första delen som anger årtalet 1655, och inte 1652. Andra upplagan, den första utkom i Paris 1675. Författare till depescherna var den franska diplomaten Pierre Hector Chanut (1604-67) som åren 1645-49 var fransk ministerresident i Sverige samt innehade ambassadörsposten i Stockholm och i Lübeck 1649-53. Depescherna från 1649 till 1655 anses dock huvudsakligen vara skrivna av Chanuts sekreterare de Piques. Martin Weibull har i "Historisk tidskrift" 1887-88 redogjort för verkets innehåll i jämförelse med originalrapporterna och kritiserar utgivaren Linage de Vaucienne för uteslutningar, misstag m.m. Chanut vann Kristinas gunst och förmedlade bl.a. kontakten med Descartes samt anses ha påverkat drottningen i religionsfrågan. Han var också en av de få samtida som skrev positivt om Kristina. Ett svensk urval utkom 1826 med kommentarer skrivna av Kristina, hämtade ur hennes eget exemplar av "Memoires"

From Vienna to Hamburg. IV. From Colen to London. Wherein the mines, baths, and other curiosities of those parts are treated of. Illustrated with sculptures

      Benj. Tooke London: Benj. Tooke. 1677. [Bound with:] Brown, Edward. A brief account of some travels in Hungaria, Servia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Thessaly, Austria, Syria, Carinthia, Carniola, and Gruilki. As also some observations on the gold, silver, copper, quick-silver mines, baths, and mineral waters in those parts: with the figures of some habits and remarkable places (London: Benj. Tooke, 1673). Both are first editions (the first title being a continuation of the second),small 4to, pp. [4], 179, plus one page ads, and pp. [x], 144; 6 engraved plates (3 folding) in Germany and 9 engraved plates (4 folding) in Hungaria; the second title lacking two leaves at the end containing ads and a list of errata and with blank corner torn away in plate at p. 85, but a handsome copy in early eighteenth-century diced calf, supralibros of James Harris, First Earl of Malmesbury, bearing the motto "Je maintiendrai" stamped in gilt on covers, rebacked with most of original spine laid down, red morocco label lettered in gilt, minimal wear overall. "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).
