Francis Willughby, John Ray
LONDON : A[ndrew]. C[lark]. for John Martyn, 1678 A very good copy in a high quality full leather binding. With title page in red and black ink; preface; text in 3 books with 2 plates of bird traps bound in, and 2 tables which serve as early identification keys; an appendix; summary of falconry; index and 78 plates of birds (including the dodo) at the rear. This is the first English edition translated from the original Latin which was published in 1676, four years after Willughby's death by his friend and colleague John Ray. It marks one of the first attempts to take a rational, scientific approach to classifying birds. It is a matter of debate, and current research, as to whether Willughby or Ray played a greater part in its development. Ray supervised the publication. The illustrations were commissioned from a number of sources and some birds are depicted twice where the initial image was not very good.This copy lacks the original endpapers - perhaps lost during the later rebinding - but is complete including the additional falconry material. There is some browning to page edges. Some of the plates have some fraying at the very edges where the paper is more fragile. This is most marked in plates LXXVI and LXXVIII - which also has a slight crease.

RAY, J[OHN]
printed by John Hays, printer to the University, for W. Morden, Cambridge, 1678. 12mo, pp. [8], 414 plus leaf of Morden ads; full contemporary calf, red morocco label on gilt-decorated spine; joints slightly rubbed, title-p. thumb-soiled, and a few old pencil and ink annotations on rear endpaper and flyleaf; overall a very good copy. First published in 1670, this book is still regarded as invaluable for the study of dialect and folklore. Ray (1627-1704) primarily known as a botanist and zoologist who was the first to lay down the correct principles of classification in the animal and vegetable kingdoms, attempted a similar application with proverbial literature. Though he never developed an ordered system that could be applied to literary studies, he has preserved nonetheless a unique and entertaining storehouse of lore, literature and wisdom. Wing R-387.

Included in the plant descriptions are the medical properties of the plants, the respective diseases for which they were used for treatment and the modes of treatment as known to the ancient, renowned traditional physicians of Malabar (Kerala). The plants are described under their names in the regional language of Malayalam, which was the language used by the natives of Cohin during the 17th century. The plates of the plants themselves are copperplate engravings wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

WHITTIER, JOHN GREENLEAF
This is the complete fair copy of his 12-stanza poem, "In the Old South Church". It begins, "She came and stood in the Old South Church a wonder and a sign, With a look the old time sibyls wore, half-crazed and half divine." In conclusion the final stanza is, "So long as Boston shall Boston be, and her bay-tides rise and fall, Shall freedom stand in the Old South Church And plead for the rights of all!" It is signed and dated, "John G. Whittier". This Church was founded in 1678, and is still in operation. Between 1872 and 1875 it was rebuilt on Boylston St. This poem was used as a dedication some 22 years later. It is boldly penned On four vellum pages. This first page is soiled but readable while the remainder is bold and beautiful. Quite scarce and interesting. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Prest's careful comparison of the 1613 Law French edition with the posthumously-published "Law, or a Discourse Thereof" (1627) and surviving manuscripts established that this English version, though published after the Law French edition, actually represents an earlier revision. · References: ODNB, Wilfrid Prest, "Finch, Sir Henry (c.1558-1625)"; Wing F932; ESTC R40596. Notwithstanding the claim on the title-page, the English version is probably from a precursor of the Law-French edition of 1613.

Trots titelbladets årtal trycktes inte boken klar förrän tidigast i slutet av 1679 och troligare 1680. Schefferus ville göra vissa ändringar och kopparsticken var inte riktigt färdiga. Hans död den 26 mars 1679 avbröt dock allt arbete och boken gavs ut som den var, dock med tillägg av utgivaren Johannes Columbus. Schück anser den vara Schefferus bäst skrivna arbete, även om resultaten inte står sig.

This study of Roman antique coins by Dutch antiquary, painter and engraver Hubert Goltz or Goltzius, was the earliest book on numismatics to be published in the Netherlands, and remained a standard reference for Roman coins until the mid eighteenth century. Illustrating the text is a series of woodcut medallion portraits of the Roman Emperors up to Charles V, printed in chiaroscuro, a method of colour printing achieved by the use of a combination of line and tone woodblocks on one subject. The chiaroscuro woodcuts for the first edition of 1557 were executed by Josse Gietleugen, and are the earliest example of the technique in the Netherlands. In 1645 a new edition of Goltzius' work was published, with important additions to the text by Jan Kaspar Gevartius, and with chiaroscuro woodcuts by Christoffel Jegher [1596-1652]. Most of Jegher's portraits were copied from the earlier cuts of Gietleugen, but ten were entirely new, the work of Jegher and Erasmus Guelli … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARTIN LISTER E SOCIETATE REGIA LONDINI
Londini: Joh Martyn, 1678. First Edition. Small 4to, [viii], 250, [1]. The second treatise has a separate title-page. Illustrated with 9 folding engravings. Bound in contemporary full calf, spine gilt (worn at the extremities of the spine, and along the hinge, bookplate removed from end paper, small library stamp on title-page. Some age toning to the sides of the title-page. A very good tight clean copy. Nissen ZBI, 2527; BMNH 3:1155; Wing L2523. The English physician Martin Lister (1638-1712) was the Royal Physician of Queen Anne. This present work was the first monograph dedicated to the mollusks. Lister describes essentially three classes of animals, i. e. spiders, terrestrial and fluvial shells and marine shells. The first section he writes of the many mistakes of previous authors writing on Arachnidae, to their venom and their use (!) in therapy. A classification of British spiders precedes the second chapter of the first part, where the different species of spiders are described according to their aspect and their alimentary habits. The second part includes as well some general description of terrestrial and fluvial shells and their classification. The largest part deals with marine shells and is illustrated by splendid plates. Lister describes exhaustively both Bivalves and Gastropods, including however also a sea-urchin among the molluscs; the last section is dedicated to the fossil shells which are found in England.

GAYA, Louis de.
[Paris], Chez Sebastien Cramoisy, 1678. 12°, contemporary mottled calf (minor wear), gilt spine with raised bands in five compartments, title stamped in second compartment from head (worn at head and foot, joints starting). Some light browning; printing flaw on A10 with loss of 3-4 words. In very good condition. Added woodcut title, (3 ll.), 172 pp. [pagination skips 145-6, repeats pp. 161-2], 19 woodcut plates [nº 14 frayed at edge]. *** Presumably the second edition of this charmingly-illustrated pocket manual for foot soldiers, and one of the first military works to describe arms and armor in detail. The Traité is known in two Cramoisy editions of 1678: one with an added title and plates engraved by N. Guérard, and this (presumably later) edition with woodcut plates and a completely reset text. An English translation appeared in London later the same year, with a second published in 1680 as part of the anonymous English Military Discipline.In his preface, Gaya explains that, having already discussed soldiering and strategy in his L'Art de la guerre, and there being no need to improve upon existing treatises on fortifications, he will devote this manual to arms and other instruments of war. In the first book (pp. 13-64), Gaya describes and illustrates the various kinds of swords, bayonets, muskets, pistols, pikes, crossbows, armor, and shields presently in use. Flares, fireworks, and mines are discussed in the second book (pp. 65-84). Book three (pp. 85-128) contains information on the types of cannon, mortars, shells, grenades, and battering rams available and general in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Erste Ausgabe! Georg Wolfgang Wedel "berühmter deutscher Universitätslehrer, geboren zu Golssen in der Niederlausitz 12. November 1645, bezog im Alter von 16 1/2 Jahren die Universität zu Jena, wo besonders SCHENK und ROLFINK seine Lehrer waren, wollte nach Ablauf seiner Studienzeit eine grössere wissenschaftliche Reise nach dem Auslande antreten, musste aber diese in Folge des plötzlich erfolgten Tode seines Vaters aufgeben, blieb dann weitere 5 Jahre zu seiner Vervollkommnung in Jena, prakticirte vorübergehend in Landsberg und Züllichau, kehrte wieder nach Jena zurück und folgte von hier aus 1667 einem Rufe als Stadtphysicus nach Gotha, wo er bis 1672 thätig war, um dann in Jena zum Dr.med. zu promoviren und den ihm übertragenden Lehrstuhl der Medicin zu übernehmen, den er mit ausserordentlichem grossem Erfolge bis zu seinem 6. September 1721 eingetretenen Tode bekleidete. Seit 1685 war er fürstlich sächsischer Leibarzt, seit 1694 Pfalzgraf gewesen. Die Zahl der von ihm hinterlassenen Schriften ist eine grosse; doch bestehen diese meist nur aus Dissertationen, akademischen Programmen und Gelegenheitsreden, von denen einige der unten genannten Quellen etwa 375 aufzählen.
