        Deckendorff/Dingelfing (Deggendorf/Dingolfing)

      Frankfurt 1680 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages”. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Germaniae” was published around 1680 in partnership with Zeiller Martin who wrote the text. “Topographia Germaniae” was one of the larges and most comprehensive publishing’s of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, Topographia Germaniae is comprised of 30 volumes with more than 2,000 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cities, towns, castles, fortresses and monasteries. This engraving, "Deckendorff/Dingelfing" measures 12.75" x 15" and is in very good condition with light staining and foxing throughout and ink marking on the back of the top left corner and pencil marking on the bottom right corner. This engraving shows views of two cities in Bavaria: Deggendorf and Dingolfing. Deggendorf is a city and a district, tracing its history and settlements back 8,000 years. This image shows the Danube River which flows through the district from east to west. An early crest is also illustrated on the top left of the piece. The lower view is of the city Dingolfing, a town in souther Bavaria. Although Dingolfing was first mentioned in 833, the city most prosperous years were from 1315 and 1600. As illustrated in the engraving, the Isar River runs through Dingolfing, diving present the older, historical section of Dingolfing and the newer residential areas. This crest illustrated in the top right corner is the crest still used by the city.

This engraving, "Bavaria Ducatus" measures 12.5" x 15.25" and is in excellent condition with light ink mark on the back of the top left corner and pencil marking on the bottom right corner. This map illustrates the state of Bavaria in southeast Germany. Bavaria is one of the oldest states in Europe and was formally established as a duchy in the 1st millennium, and fell under rule of the Holy Roman Empire through the 17th century. The Kingdom of Bavaria existed from 1806, when Napoleon abolished the Holy Roman Empire to 1918 when it became a free state. This expertly detailed map notes many major and smaller cities along the Danube River near the top, including Neuburg, Straubing and Passau. Rivers off of the Danube are noted and flow south to major cities such as Dachau, Munich, Wasserburg and Salzburg. This all encompassing map is well detailed and shows areas of lakes and forests and includes a decorative cartouche and figure holding the escutcheon coat of arms with the Peoples Crown, symbols of Bavaria.

        De stolatae virginitatis jure lucubratio academica.

Leading edges gilt; marbled endpapers. First edition; rare. "One of his learned obsceneties" (cf. Bilder-Lexikon). Beverland (1650-1716), one of the most colourful figures of late 17th-century scholarship, had to leave Leiden University after creating a scandal hit with his treatise on original sin ("Peccatum originale", 1778). He proceeded to "live in England and write many pieces of filthy poetry" (cf. Rosenkranz, Hdb. einer allg. Geschichte der Poesie II, 30). An English translation was published in 1905 as "The Law Concerning Draped Virginity: An Academical Study". None of his works was banned by the Church, a fact which Reusch (II, 862) interprets as a sign of the increasingly desultory character of Roman censorship in the 18th century. - Front hinge beginning to split, otherwise a very appealing copy from the library of Armand Jules de Rohan (1695-1762), Duke and Archbishop of Reims (and uncle of Cardinal Rohan, notorious for the so-called Affair of the Diamond Necklace), with his engr. armorial bookplate on front pastedown.

Pequeño cerco de antigua humedad en el margen de algunas hojas, sin afectar al texto. Anotaciones manuscritas antiguas en los márgenes de algunas páginas.

Entre otras muchas anécdotas, el autor refiere una de 1619 en la que el duque, tras llegar a Bohemia con sus soldados, quiso reconocer las murallas de Pisca para adelantarse a los alemanes dirigidos por el conde Juan de Nassau y "contemplando con mucha atencion la situacion de los muros, y altura del fosso desde la ventana de una casa muy vezina, le dispararon desde una almena del muro un mosquetazo, cuya bala le atravesò la cara, le echò aperder un ojo, y passandole la boca le quitò algunos dientes, y saliò por la parte opuesta." Uno de los grabados -fechado en 1679- es un retrato de Alejandro, duque y príncipe de Bournonville, caballero de la orden del Toisón de Oro del Consejo Supremo de Guerra de Su Majestad, mariscal general de los ejércitos imperiales, virrey y capitán general del principado de Cataluña y capitán general del ejército.

        The Information of Francisco de Faria, delivered at the Bar of the House of Commons, Munday, the First day of November, in the year of our Lord, 1680. Perused and Signed to be printed, according to the Order of the House of Commons, by me William Williams, Speaker. London, 1680

      Printed by the assigns of John Bill, Thomas Newcomb, and Henry Hills, printers to the Kings most excellent Majesty, London, Great Britain 1680 - Francisco de Faria was born to Jewish parents in Pernambuco, Brazil in 1653. His father, John de Faria, was born in St. Giles, Belgium. The information de Faria provides lent credence to canard of the so called Popish Plot, a supposed criminal Catholic endeavor to overturn the Protestant government of England. We learn from his testimony that de Faria was recruited as an agent in Antwerp, where he made the acquaintance of several English Catholics, who convinced him to travel to London where he became personal assistant to the Portuguese ambassador. Along with his brother Abraham, Francisco de Faria was subsequently hired by the Portuguese as an assassin. A tale of considerable intrigue and suspense. See AJHSP, Volume XX, pages 115-132 Cf.

        Historia della Republica veneta di Battista Nani, Cavaliere e procurator di San Marco, consetrata all’illustrissimo signor Conte Cornelio Pepoli

      In Bologna, per Gioseffo Longhi, [1680] - Un volume diviso in due tomi in-4°. I: pp. (8), 421, (23); II: pp. (8), 350, (54). Legatura in piena pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso; tagli a spruzzo, qualche brunitura. Nel frontespizio lo stemma con lo scudo a scacchi del conte Pepoli; capilettera decorati, testatine xilografiche. Fitte annotazioni manoscritte nei primi due libri della seconda parte della stessa mano che corregge un errore di numerazione tra le pp. 277-284. Nella prima e seconda edizione, pubblicate entrambe da Combi e la Nou (1662, 1663), la storia del Nani, che parte dal 1613, arriva fino al 1644; «la terza impressione fatta dagli stessi Combi e la Nou nel 1676 e 1679 in due tomi in 4 progredisce la storia fino all’anno 1671; edizione che fu ripetuta una quarta volta da’ suddetti nel 1686, pur in 4, e che prima di quest’anno era stata ristampata in Bologna nel 1680 per Gioseffo Longhi» (Cicogna, 574). Nominato il 17 marzo 1652 storiografo ufficiale della Repubblica di Venezia, il Nani pubblica questa storia «ponderosa per mole, di vasto respiro stilistico nella costanza dei suoi toni alti lambita, talora, da una sin troppo tornita magniloquenza» (Benzoni, Storia della cultura veneta, IV/2, p. 73).

      Oxford: Printed by Henry Hall for Richard Davis and B. Took 1680 - Second edition of the Sceptical Chemist, first edition of Experiments and Notes, without the advertisement (as usual), some browning, confined to three gatherings in the first part, more general in the second, a few ink or rust spots, pp. [xx], 440, [xxviii], 268, 8vo, contemporary English calf, double gilt fillets on sides, gilt fleurons in the corners, surface of covers crackled, rebacked and recornered, old staple holes to upper board from a chained library, old ink notes to front flyleaf and name of author at top of title page written in an old hand, Sion College library stamp and release stamp (dated 1938) to title verso, good ‘The importance of Boyle’s book must be sought in his combination of chemistry with physics. His corpuscular theory, and Newton’s modification of it, gradually led chemists towards an atomic view of matter . Boyle distinguished between mixtures and compounds and tried to understand the latter in terms of the simpler chemical entities from which they could be constructed. His argument was designed to lead chemists away from the pure empiricism of his predecessors and to stress the theoretical, experimental and mechanistic elements of chemical science. The Sceptical Chymist is concerned with the relations between chemical substances rather than with transmuting one metal into another or the manufacture of drugs. In this sense the book must be considered as one of the most significant milestones on the way to the chemical revolution of Lavoisier in the late eighteenth century’ (PMM).In Experiments and Notes about the Producibleness of Chymicall Principles ‘Boyle undertook to show that many of the substances best qualified for the title elements could, in fact, be produced by transmutation from a variety of other elementary starting materials. And he considered this an important demonstration because: "If the bodies they call principles be produced de novo how will it be demonstrable, that nature was obliged to take those principles made ready to her hand, when she was to compound a mix’t body?’" (Kuhn p. 28).The first edition (London, 1661) of the Sceptical Chymist can now command a six-figure sum.

        Vera effigies vrbis et montis frisingensis, qua meridiem alpes, monachium, et ingentem planitiem aspicit, 1642. Die statt Freisingen, gegen Mitternacht (Freising, Germany)

      Frankfurt 1680 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages.” Born and trained in Basel , Switzerland, in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Germaniae” was published around 1680 in partnership with Zeiller Martin who wrote the text. “Topographia Germaniae” was one of the larges and most comprehensive publishing’s of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, Topographia Germaniae is comprised of 30 volumes with more than 2,000 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cities, towns, castles, fortresses and monasteries. This engraving, "Vera effigies vrbis et montis frisingensis, qua meridiem alpes, monachium, et ingentem planitiem aspicit, 1642. Die statt Freisingen, gegen Mitternacht " measures 12.75" x 15.75" and is in very good condition with light staining around the edges and pencil marking on the lower right corner. This engraving shows two views of the city Freising, located in Bavaria, Germany. Freising is one of the oldest settlements in Bavaria, and played an important role in the Middle Ages as a religious center. The engraving shows two dynamic views of the city and labels the numerous churches and building throughout the city. Two of the famous hills of Freising are illustrated: Cathedral Hill and Weihenstephan Hill.

The foundation work on animal motion. Published in the year of his death, Borelli's treatise presented the application of mechanics to the motion of the limbs of animals based largely on Galileo's mechanics. He began with the center of motion, the muscle, and then applied its forces to the linkage of bones with the same exactness as forces applied to levers. This analysis evolved into a system describing an animal's entire mobility covering the motions of walking, running, jumping, weight-lifting, bird flight, fish motion and insect creeping. He held that nerve stimulation was related to the contraction and swelling of a muscle and that some chemical process was associated with it. He also believed that heartbeat was a simple muscular contraction and that the circulatory system was hydraulic in principle (Dibner, Heralds of Science). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Printed for Robert Harford, 1680. - [48], 165, [3] pp. Recent full-leather. Very Good. First Edition. Wing C6510. Written while Robert Couch was "Sometimes Practitioner in Physick and Chyrurgery, at Boston in New-England," this is the first medical book composed in the British colonies. In 1663 Couch emigrated from England. Upon arrival in Boston he established himself as a physician and surgeon and spent most of his remaining life in Boston, with the exception of two years (1667-1669) in Portsmouth (New Hampshire), and a period in the late 1670s when he resided in Virginia and where he died prior to 1680. His manuscript was acquired by Francis Willis of Ware River, Virginia, who sent it to the London chemist Christopher Pack, who arranged for its publication with his own additions, and with a dedication of the work to Willis. There are very few 17th century American medical publications. Those published in the colonies include the following. Austin, Early American Medical Imprints, records three: (1) Thomas Vincent's 31-page pamphlet on the London fire and plague (Cambridge 1668; Austin 1977); (2) Thomas Thacher's broadside on small pox (Boston 1678; Austin 1881); and (3) John Oliver's 129-page book for pregnant women (Boston 1694; Austin 1433). Guerra, American Medical Bibliography [a-1 through a-12], records two printings of Vincent's pamphlet (1667, 1668); Thacher's broadside; two variant printings of a religious pamphlet by Allen James (1679); four works by Cotton Mather (1689, 1692, 1696, 1698); Oliver's book; and two printings of legislation in the Province of Massachusetts-Bay relating to health matters (1694, 1699).

        Ambassades mémorables de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales des Provinces Unies vers les Empereurs du Japon

      Jan Van Meurs, Amsterdam 1680 - Contemporary speckled calf, neatly rebacked and cornered, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, dated at the foot of the spine First edition in French of this important work on Japan, a work whose illustrations "represent a high-water mark in book illustrations of the 17th century" (Lach). Designed to complement his similar work on China, this work was compiled by Montanus from records of Jesuit missions to Japan in 1649 and 1661, and published by Jan Van Meurs for the Dutch East India Company. Van Meurs had received the necessary permission to publish both a Dutch and a French edition in 1664, but it was not until 1669 that the Dutch edition appeared, to be followed shortly after by translations in German and in English using Van Meurs plates. In the present edition, the frontispiece and four of the original large plates were recut, and many of the text illustrations are reversed or mirrored. This edition is the first to include the plate of Fort Zeelandia in Taiwan. Montanus' work amounts to a massive history of all aspects of Japan as it was then understood by the West and contains "more firsthand information about Japan than any other post-1650 publication" (Lach). The work primarily concentrates on providing accounts of Japanese politics, culture, religion, and military affairs. In addition, Montanus gives descriptions of the various western attempts to make contact with Japan: these naturally concentrate on the VOC (or Dutch East-India Company) embassies. The account of the Dutch 'Blokovius-Frisium embassy' comes from previously unpublished material, and other VOC embassies described include those of Zacharias Wagenaer in 1657 and Henry Indyk in 1661. Topographical information is wide ranging (for the time) and includes Montanus' descriptions of the towns of Nagasaki, Hirado, Osaka, Sakai, Kyoto, Shizuoka, and Edo, as well as the mysterious 'boiling waters of Singok'. The sociology of Japan is also described in some detail, with accounts of Japanese customs (bath-houses, wrestling, gardens) endeavors (whaling, wine-making), and mores (including crime and punishment with accounts of murder, the burning of widows, blood-baths, and various tortures). The magnificent maps, plans, and illustrations cover Japanese costume, cities, flora and fauna, religious ceremonies, military techniques and include a plan of Nagasaki, large folding views of Miako and Edo, a scene of the destruction wrought by an earthquake at Edo, action portraits of samurai, an illustration of a religious ceremony at the temple at Beelden, formal meetings between western ambassadors and the Japanese Imperial Court, and a plate showing the Emperor's throne.
