En effet, alors qu'une première partie, assez classique, est consacrée à la manière de tracer avec justesse les cadrans solaires sur les surfaces planes, puis sur toutes sortes de surfaces, à deux reprises, l'auteur (anonyme) s'étend plus longuement sur l'usage d'instruments spéciaux : tout d'abord, des pages 44 et 48, à propos d'une machine propre à poser les axes des cadrans, puis, de la page 52 à 66, au sujet d'un "cadran cyclique fort curieux" (un cadran diptyque solaire et lunaire ?). Cette insistance sur deux instruments spécifiques (qui sont les seuls à bénéficier d'un sous - paragraphe explicitement nommé "Usage") se comprend à la toute fin de l'oeuvre, où on lit l'avertissement publicitaire suivant : "Le Sieur Butterfield fabricateur des instrumens de Mathematiques au Fauxbourg S. Germain, rue neuve des Fossés, Aux Armes d'Angleterre, fait fort proprement le Cadran cyclique, la règle de la Figure fondamentale, et la machine propre à poser les Axes des Cadrans."

First French, the international language of science of the time, also first Book Edition of the first really accurate description of the red blood corpuscles, which Swammerdam had noted first in 1658 ! "Especially skilful and indefatigable in the grinding of lenses was Antonj van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), chamberlain (janitor) of the Council Chamber of the Worshipful Sheriffs of Delft, Holland, and otherwise employed in a linen drapery shop. The Dutchman Jan Swammerdam (1637-1680) and the Italian Marcello Malpighi (1628-1694) are often credited with describing the red blood corpuscles before Leeuwenhoek, but Swammerdam only referred to the presence of "ruddy globules" in the blood and doubted that blood in its vessels contains such globules, while Malpighi's interest seems to have been only casual. It is Leeuwenhoek, therefore, who deserves the credit for having provided the first real description of the red blood cells. He was untutored and had had little formal education, but he was a person of infinite curiosity and patience. He examined his own blood, described the red corpuscles, and even me … [Click Below for Full Description]

[TASSO, TORQUATO]
La Haye: Levyn van Dyk, 1679. n. This is an appealing French edition of Tasso's pastoral drama, in an excellent amateur binding by scholar, collector, connoisseur, and binder Fletcher W. Battershall. A lawyer by trade, Battershall (1866-1929) was the author of "Book-Binding for Bibliophiles" (1905) and several articles on bookbinding. He was perhaps a pupil of Louis Kinder, head binder at the Roycroft Shop, as Kinder dedicated his own book, "Formulas for Bookbinders," to Battershall in admiration of the latter's "love for and unceasing labors in the study of artistic bookbinding." The son of a poet manqué, Torquato Tasso (1544-95) was destined by his father for a legal career, but the publication of his epic poem "Rinaldo" when he was still a teenager won him a place at the court of Alfonso d'Este, Duke of Ferrara, by whom he was paid simply to write poetry and for whom he produced "Aminta" in 1573. The shimmering beauty of this pastoral drama marked its author as the most promising poet of the day, and the work was staged repeatedly to delighted audiences, although it did not find its way into print until 1581. It first appeared in a French prose translation just three years later, and our verse translation, accompanied by annotations and the original Italian text, was published in Paris in 1666.. 146 x 86 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 3/8"). 6 p.l., 185, [3] pp. Charming scarlet crushed morocco, gilt, by Fletcher Battershall (stamp-signed on front turn-in with his distinctive bat device), covers with delicate frame of small tools, floral cornerpieces, and large central fleuron, raised … [Click Below for Full Description]

PFINTZING, Melchior; THEUERDANK; MAXIMILIAN
Augsburg: Mattaeo Schultes, 1679. hardcover. very good. Densely worded Gothic type title page printed in red & black. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece, and 117 finely printed large woodcuts (1 is hand-colored) by Leonhard Beck, Hans Burgkmair, Hans Schaufelein, et al., followed by 58 pages of text. Decorative initials and head/tailpieces throughout. Short folio, older vellum-backed boards (outer joint repaired, otherwise only lightly worn but with stain on rear cover). Augsburg: Mattaeo Schultes, [1679]. A very good clean copy of this scarce book. Originally printed in 1517, this work is an epic allegorical poem commissioned to celebrate the exploits and heroic feats of the Emperor Maximilian I (represented by Theuerdank) who overcomes the difficulties attending him on his journey for and with his bride Mary of Burgundy. It is assumed that Maximillian himself had a considerable share in the composition, and may have made the first drafts in 1508-08... The finishing and general editing was then undertaken by Maximilian's private secretary M. Pfuntzing.

Wecker, Anna.
Basel, König (Teil 2 ohne Ort und Verleger), 1679. - Sehr seltene erweiterte und verbesserte Ausgabe des ersten von einer Frau geschriebenen Kochbuchs, das erstmals 1597 erschienen war. Dieses Kochbuch zeichnet sich dadurch aus, dass es neben Alltagsgerichten nicht nur komplizierte, heute kaum noch bekannte und teils sehr "innovative" Speisen beschreibt, sondern sich auch um die Armenküche kümmert sowie Schnellgerichte und eine dietätische Küche beschreibt. Für die Ausgaben des Jahres 1620 wurde Anna Weckers Text einer gründlichen Revision unterzogen, durch neue Rezepte vermehrt und der Text sinnvoller geordnet. Es wird vermutet, dass Passagen aus Johann Deckhardts 1611 erschienenem 'New Kunstreich und Nützliches Kochbuch' übernommen wurden, so dass dieser als Co-Autor für die folgenden Basler Ausgaben von 1652, 1667 und dieser angesehen werden kann. "Der 2. Teil ‚Parisischer Küchemeister‘ stammt nicht von Anna Wecker, sondern ist eine anonyme deutsche Übersetzung von De la Varennes 'Le Cusinier françois', wohl das gesuchteste französische Kochbuch des 17. Jahrhunderts" (Weiss). – Titel verso mit umfangreicher zeitgenöss. handschriftl. Eintragung (Tinte auf den Titel durchlagend). Sonst nur leicht gebräunt bzw. stockfleckig, gegen Ende 12 Blatt mit schmalen Wurmspuren. – Weiss 4104. Vgl. Horn/Arndt 96f und Bitting S. 789.

Zesen, Philipp v.
Nürnberg, Johann Hoffmann, 1679. Erste Ausgabe des neben dem 'Assenat' bedeutendsten Romans Zesens. Der 'Simson' sollte das Mittelstück einer geplanten Trilogie biblischer Romane sein, die mit dem 'Assenat' (1670), in dem die Josephslegende mit Elementen des Staats- und Liebesromans verbunden wurde, begonnen worden war. Der geplante abschließende Moses-Roman ist nicht mehr erschienen. Während der 'Assenat' noch vier Auflagen erlebte, fand der 'Simson' kein interessiertes Lesepublikum mehr und erlebte nur diese Auflage. Zesen (1618-1689) gilt als einer der ersten deutschen Berufsschriftsteller. Im Gegensatz zu vielen "heroisch-galanten" Romanen des Barock hat er Weitschweifigkeiten der Handlungsführung weitgehend vermieden. "Zesen verwendet eine streng stilisierte Prosa, die – wie er selber betont – 'lakonische Rede': zumeist kurze, parataktisch gereihte Hauptsätze" (KNLL). Die deutsche Sprache verdankt Zesens Reinheitsbemühungen wie seinem Ausbau der dichterischen Sprachmöglichkeiten wertvolle Impulse, die erst mit dem Aufleben der Zesen-Forschung der letzten Jahre voll gewürdigt werden. Für die barocke Romantheorie ist die Vorrede "Dem Deutsch- und treugesinnetem (!) Leser" wichtig. – Titel verso mit gelöschtem Bibliotheksstempel. Gestoch. Titel im Rand ansgefranst (ohne Bildverlust). Unterschiedlich gebräunt, gutes Exemplar. – VD17 3:004325S und 3:004329X; Dünnhaupt 100; Goed. III 103, 68-69; Otto 200 u. 201; Manheimer 468; Faber du Faur II 830 g-h. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

James II
The Hague: April 24, 1679. Bifolium with integral blank & autograph address leaf, monogrammed red seal. 4to. Prior to becoming king, James II acted as lord high admiral from 1660-73. ODNB says, he was "no mere figurehead ... but took an active interest in naval affairs." He had a small board of seven men to assist him, Samuel Pepys served among them as clerk of the acts. James took his role so seriously that he was present on ships engaged in both the second and third Anglo-Dutch wars until being forbidden by Charles II from further endangering his life. This letter was written at the time of the Popish plot, and in order to quell any suspicion of involvement, James went abroad to Brussels and later Scotland where he was "virtual viceroy". Pepys lasting claim to fame is, of course, his diary. However, the substance of his life's work and thus the diary itself was through his work as an official in the Admiralty, not least as Secretary of the Royal Navy when he was commissioned to report on the condition of the Navy, which, after "five years of uninterruped Peace" and incompetent administration, had been reduced "to a Condition of being with difficulty kept above Water". In addition to assisting James II, Pepys had also been on a committee to run Tangiers from 1672-79. So it was only natural that the two would correspond on matters regarding it. The letter is an excellent example of his correspondence with Pepys. It reads in part, "I had recived yours in which you gave an account of the losse of the marigold prise at Tanger. I hope that we shall now sone heare of the arrival … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1679, in-12, (12), 66, (54) pages et 4 planches, veau du début du XVIIIe siècle, triple filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, dos à 5 nerfs orné, tranches rouges, signet, Première édition, rare, de l'un des premiers textes témoignant de l'activité parisienne du célèbre fabricant anglais Michael Butterfield, tenant boutique à Paris à l'enseigne "Aux Armes d'Angleterre", rue Neuve-des-Fossés. En effet, alors qu'une première partie, assez classique, est consacrée à la manière de tracer avec justesse les cadrans solaires sur les surfaces planes, puis sur toutes sortes de surfaces, à deux reprises, l'auteur (anonyme) s'étend plus longuement sur l'usage d'instruments spéciaux : tout d'abord, des pages 44 et 48, à propos d'une machine propre à poser les axes des cadrans, puis, de la page 52 à 66, au sujet d'un "cadran cyclique fort curieux" (un cadran diptyque solaire et lunaire ?). Cette insistance sur deux instruments spécifiques (qui sont les seuls à bénéficier d'un sous-paragraphe explicitement nommé "Usage") se comprend à la toute fin de l'oeuvre, où on lit l'avertissement publicitaire suivant : "Le Sieur Butterfield fabricateur des instrumens de Mathematiques au Fauxbourg S. Germain, rue neuve des Fossés, Aux Armes d'Angleterre, fait fort proprement le Cadran cyclique, la règle de la Figure fondamentale, et la machine propre à poser les Axes des Cadrans."

J Partridge
London: William Bromwich, 1679 A fair copy of the first edition of a very scarce work, with some interesting additions by a previous owner. Partridge (1644-1714), who taught himself Latin and Greek, set out to reform Astrology and remove 'arabic' influences. This work set out to form a brief but comprehensive guide to the subject. This copy is in a full leather binding, with contemporary boards, which have a blind-tooled design, and a newer spine. The endpapers were replaced and additional blank pages added. Internally there is a plate labeled 'frontispiece' but it is not clear if it is from this work. An R Rogers has put the date 1763, his name and some astrological signs on the facing blank, which forms the verso to the publication licence (dated Sept 14, 1678). R Rogers has then drawn an astrological design on the next facing blank, which is the verso to the frontispiece portrait of Partridge. The title page is dated 1679, and is followed by blank; dedication to Sir George Wharton 4pp; Letter from John Gadbury 6pp; To the Reader 8pp; Poem to JP by Thos Trigge and further poems 4pp; half title to Table; Table 13pp; The Ephemerides Explained 2pp; Contents and Errata 2pp; Text pp 1-76; title page for continuation 1679; blank; text pp 79-231; blank; title page for continuation 1679; text pp 235-274; A Century of Choice Aphorisms J Gadbury pp 274-348 Finis. A hand-written advertisement page has been added in - with the name J H Gent, and the date 1665. The binding has general wear to the boards with some corner loss. The newer spine has wear at the joints and edges. Internall … [Click Below for Full Description]
