        Musaeum Regalis Societatis. Or a Catalogue and Description of the Natural and Artificial Rarities Belonging to the Royal Society and preserved at Gresham College.

      . Whereunto is Subjoyned the Comparative Anatomy of Stomachs and Guts. - London, Printed by W. Rawlins, for the Author, 1681, Folio, 1 Portrait, (12), 386, (2), (4), 43 pp., 31 engraved plates, contemp. rebacked leather; fine and fresh copy.. First Edition - with the engraved portrait of Sir Daniel Colwall ( - 1690), merchant and philanthropist, and "founder" of the Royal Society, and 22 engraved plates, including one folding, depicting the natural rarities of the museum, and 9 plates devoted to 31 different stomachs and guts. - As secretary to the Royal Society, Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712) compiled this illustrated catalogue if its museum, housed then at Gresham College. "Published with the catalogue is Grew's study of the stomach organs, which is the first zoological book to have the term 'comparative anatomy' on the title-page, and also the first attempt to deal with one system of organs only by the comparative method." * - "The catalogue of the Royal Society's museum ... excels it by far in its orderly arrangement, detailed descriptions and historical data relating to the natural phenomena that form its subject matter. This museum is usually regarded as having been founded by Daniel Colwall ( -. 1690); and it is true that he made its foundation possible. He was one of the original Fellows of the Royal Society elected in 1663 and for 14 years was treasurer in which capacity he was able to save it more than once from financial collapse. It was he who in 1666 provided the money to purchase " the rareities formerly belonging to Mr. Hubbard" and so took the first step towards the formation of the museum. "Mr. Hubbard" was probably Robert Hubert alias Forges, who had a collection of "many natural rareities which he had amassed with great industry, cost and thirty years' travel in foreign countries", for many of the entries in the respective catalogues are so similar as to leave no doubt that they refer to the same specimens. Colwall entrusted the preparation of the catalogue of the Royal Society's museum to Nehemiah Grew and it was completed in 1681. He divides the collection into four main parts, specimens relating to Animals, Plants, Minerals and what he terms "Artificial Matters", that is, coins, instruments and other "manufactured" articles. One of the most interesting items to us is the one recorded on page 4: " All the principal Veins, Arteries, and Nerves, both of the Limbs and Viscera. The generous gift of John Evelyn, Esquire. He bought them at Padoa, where he saw them with great industry and exactness (according to the best method then used) taken out of the body of a Man, and very curiously spread upon four large Tables, whereon they are now preserved. The work of Fabritius Bartoletus then Veslingius's Assistant there, and afterwards Physician to the King of Poland." There is another also, described on page 31, which the College is fortunate enough to possess. This is "A Spiral or Wreathed Tusk of an Elephant. Presented from the Royal African Company by Thomas Crispe, Esq. 'Tis about an Ell long.... Whether this be naturally twisted or by art, I will not determine." On page 78 is noted "The Egg of a Swan with another within it." John Hunter had one of these curious specimens, in this case a Hen's egg, a replacement for which can be seen in the museum, generously presented by Dr. 0. C. Carter, who sacrificed his breakfast in the interests of the museum. Until the middle of the 17th century the scope of the museum was limited by the fact that the contents must be dry and so consisted of such things as shells, feathers, fossils, rocks, horns, antlers, dried and stuffed skins, sponges and bones, silngly or articulated as skeletons. Plants and flowers could be dried and the anatomist found that some animal structures could also be preserved in this way. These were of immense value for teaching, ..." - "It can well be imaginied what a revolution in museum technique occurred when the preservation of the soft tissues was made possible. William Croone, after whom the Croonian Lectures were named, at a meeting of the Fellows of the Royal Society on 28th May 1662, exhibited two puppies which he had kept in spirits of wine for eight days. Just over a year later, Robert Boyle, the distinguished physicist, published the results of his experiments which were begun at about the same time or even earlier than those of Croone; and in 1664 he too demonstrated to the Society a linnet and a small snake which had been kept for four months in spirits of wine and had shown no sign of putrefaction. These he gave to the museum and they are recorded in Grew's catalogue on pages 48 and 58, the second description being: "A young Linet which being first embowel'd, hath been preserved sound and entire, in rectified spirit of wine for the space of 17 years" (i.e. 1664-1681)." Given by the Honourable Mr. Boyl. Who, so far as I know, was the first that made trial of preserving animals in this way. An Experiment of much use. As for the preserving of all sorts of Worms, Caterpillars, and other soft Insects in their natural bulk and shape, which otherwise shrink up, so as nothing can be observed of their parts after they are dead. So also to keep the Guts or other soft parts of Animals, for often repeated Inspections. And had the Kings or Physitians of Egypt thought on't, in my Opinion, it had been a much better way of making an everlasting Mummy." The subsequent history of these specimens is distressing. - - In 1782 the collections of the Royal Society were handed over to the British Museum. Like all museums, demands upon space lead to constant rearrangement and reassessment of the contents. When the new building erected for the accommodation of John Hunter's museum in Lincoln's Inn Fields was sufficiently far advanced to set out the specimens, the British Museum authorities generously offered to hand over many of their preparations of human and comparative anatomy, and these included the Evelyn Tables and the Elephant's tusk; but they also included these very first spiritpreserved specimens of which there is now no trace."

        Histoire de Théodose le Grand

      Maere-Cramoisy, Paris 1681 - Flechier Esprit (1632-1710) ~ Histoire de Théodose le Grand pour Monseigneur le Dauphin ~ A Paris, Maere-Cramoisy, 1681 In-12, Vélin époque, 560 pp., frontispice, Bel exemplaire ex bibliotheca d'Arenberg (Nordkirchen) Flechier né à Pernes, dans le Comtat Venaissin, le 10 juin 1632. Il eut une jeunesse pauvre, fréquenta l'hôtel Rambouillet, devint sous-précepteur, puis lecteur du Dauphin et aumônier de Mme la Dauphine. Poète français et latin, remarquable orateur sacré, il prononça des oraisons funèbres, dont les meilleures sont celles de Turenne et du duc de Montausier. Nommé à l'Académie le 5 décembre 1672, en remplacement de Godeau, il fut reçu le 12 janvier 1673, le même jour que Racine et Gallois. Son discours eut un succès qui déconcerta Racine, parlant après lui et qui le fit paraître inférieur à lui-même, " Le premier qui fut reçu après moi fut M. l'abbé Fléchier, évêque de Nîmes. Il y eut une foule de monde et de beau monde à sa réception. On peut dire que l'Académie changea de face à ce moment ; de peu connue qu'elle était, elle devint si célèbre, qu'elle faisait le sujet des conversations ordinaires. " (Perrault). Fléchier fut nommé évêque de Lavaur, en 1685, puis de Nîmes, 1687 ; sa charité était inépuisable et il fut regretté même des protestants. Il reçut Huet, fut protecteur de l'Académie de Nîmes, et a laissé une Histoire de Théodose le Grand. Mort le 16 février 1710. Théodose le Grand (347-395) fut le dernier souverain de l'Empire romain unifié. C'es à sa mort que l'empire fut scindé en deux et partagé par se fils : Arcadius devint empereur d'Orient avec Constantinople comme capitale et Honorius, à qui échu l'Occident, qui prit Ravenne comme capitale.

Two volumes bound as one. [xl]330[2]249[3]pp. First edition. A thoughtful and lengthy argument that all that is evil in the Church, such as the Inquisition, simony, and clerical misbehaviour, comes from the Papacy and the Cardinals, the solution being to abolish the Papacy, returning the Church to its original and scriptural simplicity. According to the "Avertisement" at the end, the manuscript was unfinished due to the ill-health of the anonymous author, an "homme de qualite et scavant." Pierre Marteau is a fictitious publishing house, never located in Cologne or anywhere else, providing a name under which French, German, and Dutch printers could disseminate controversial or pornographic books from 1660 to the late 18th century. Other Pierre Marteau titles tend to be anticlerical, politically inflammatory or scandalous. (Brunet: Imprimeurs Imaginaires.) The Dictionnaire des Ouvrages Anonymes states that it has so far been impossible to identify the author. Contemporary calf, spine gilt in five compartments. marbled edges.

Owner's signature of Lucy Fortescue Lyttleton, daughter of Hugh Fortescue, and spouse of George, first Baron Lyttelton. Lucy died in 1747, aged 29. There is a portrait of her by John M. Williams. Henry Foulis became a sub-rector of Lincoln College in 1667. He was warmly attached to the church of England, and attacked with equal venom by the Presbyterians and papists. His death in 1669 was 'occasioned by a generous and good-natured intemperance'. This volume was his second book. The delay in publication after his death was caused by a 'knavish bookseller'. Notes for other works were burnt by Foulis on his deathbed. Anthony a Wood was an intimate friend, responsible for the quotes above, and also made a catalogue of Foulis's library.

Le tavole sono quelle che erano comparse nei Principia philosophiae del 1644.Cartesio, nato a La Haye en Touraine nel 1596, fu educato dai gesuiti e dopo gli studi in legge, invece di dedicarsi alla giurisprudenza, iniziò la carriera militare. Avvicinatosi alla ricerca scientifica estese il metodo matematico-quantitativo a tutti i campi del sapere, pose al centro di ogni ricerca il dubbio metodico che deve portare al sapere, la ragione che applicata in ogni campo può permettere il progresso in ogni ramo dello scibile. Il "Cogito ergo sum" che compare nel Discorso sul metodo edito nel 1637 segna infatti la nascita della scienza moderna e costituisce, spiegando la sua filosofia, la premessa ai trattati scientifici che aveva composto nel periodo del suo soggiorno in Olanda, e che studiavano l’ottica, le meteore e la geometria. La sua filosofia fu condannata dall’Università di Utrecht nel 1643, ma l’anno seguente pubblica in latino i Principia philosophiae ed inizia la corrispondenza con la principessa Elisabeth, primogenita di Federico re di Boemia, conte Palatino ed Elettore, con la quale ebbe fra il 1643 ed il 1649 uno scambio su questioni filosofiche e matematiche ed alla quale era dedicata anche quest’opera, apparsa in francese per la prima volta ne 1647. Nel 1649 andò in Svezia chiamato dalla regina Cristina, ma morì nel 1650.

      London: Printed by S Roycroft for Robert Clavel at the Peacock, 1681 [a2-a6]+[b-b7]+[c-c7]+[d-231]+[5] pages. Small square octavo (7 ¾" x 6 ¼") bound in full leather.  Second edition. Thomas Barlow (1607-1691) was an English academic and clergyman, who became Provost of The Queen's College, Oxford and Bishop of Lincoln. He was considered, in his own times and by Edmund Venables writing in the Dictionary of National Biography, to have been a trimmer, a reputation mixed in with his academic and other writings on casuistry. His views were in fact Calvinist and strongly anti-Catholic, and he was one of the last English bishops to identify the Pope as the Antichrist He worked in the 1660s for the 'comprehension' of nonconformists, but supported the crackdown of the mid-1680s; and declared loyalty to James II of England on his accession, having strongly supported the Exclusion Bill which would have denied the Catholic James the succession. Pope Pius V's response to Queen Elizabeth I of England assuming governance of the Church of England included support of the imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots, and her supporters in their attempts to take over England "ex turpissima muliebris libidinis servitute". A brief English Catholic uprising, the Rising of the North, had just failed. Pius then issued a bull, Regnans in Excelsis, dated April 27, 1570, that declared Elizabeth I a heretic and released her subjects from their allegiance to her. In response, Elizabeth, who had thus far tolerated Catholic worship in private, now actively started persecuting them. Condition:  Original bards with new period spine and red label with gilt lettering to spine corners rubbed and bumped else a good to very good copy.

        The Unequal Match or, Mary of Anjou Queen of Majorca: an Historical Novel

The title page lists this as being 'the second and last part', dated1683 only, however, the pagination and further titlesindicate that it contains both the first part of 1681 and the second and thirdparts of 1683. 'Printed for R. Bentley, at the Post-House in Russel-Street, near the Piazza in Covent-Garden'. With a publisher's catalogue to the rear of 'Plays printed for R. Bentley'. Jean de La Chapelle (24 October 1651 - 29 May 1723) was a French writer and dramatist. A minor nobleman, the nephew of Boileau, his literary talents made him stand out to the Prince of Conti to whom he became a private secretary in 1678. Marie of Anjou (14 October 1404 29 November 1463) was the Queen consort of King Charles VII of France from 1422 to 1461. Marie was the eldest daughter of Louis II of Anjou, titular King of Naples, titular King of Sicily, and Yolande of Aragon, titular Queen of Aragon. She married her second cousin King Charles VII in April 1422 at Bourges and became Queen consort of Charles, although Charles himself was not crowned King until 17 July 1429 at Reims, following the successful endeavors of Joan of Arc in expelling the English from most of France. Her husband's victory in the Hundred Years War owed a great deal to the support he received from Marie's family, notably from her mother Yolande of Aragon. Condition: In a half calf binding. Externally sound, although rubbed, with marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are age-toned with some mild damp staining.

The first German edition of Dapper's important compilations of travels in Asia and Persia, following the first Amsterdam edition of 1672. Olfert Dapper (1639- 89) was a Dutch physician and indefatigable scholar and compiler of travel accounts. Though he apparently never left Amsterdam, Dapper produced several finely illustrated volumes describing travels in Asia, Asia Minor, the Middle East, and Africa. Culled from a variety of accounts, his works were very popular, and are especially noteworthy for their excellent illustrations and maps. The first title in the present volume describes travels in Asia and contains several detailed illustrations of Hindu and Buddhist myths, as well as Indian natives and port scenes. There is also a double-page map of "Indostan," showing the Indian subcontinent. Much of the text relates travels in India, though there are also sections on Kabul and Kandahar. The second title relates travels in Persia, and includes a double-page map showing the area encompassing present-day Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. There are double-page plates showing views of the cities of "Schamachie," "Isfahan," "Kom," "Derbendt," and more. OCLC locates only nine copies of this dual issue of Dapper's works. Not in Cox.

        Ordenanzas del Consejo Real de Indias. Nuevamente recopiladas por el rey don Felipe Quarto, N.S. para su gobierno, establecidas Año de M.DC.XXXVI.

      Madrid, por Julián de Paredes 1681 - Fol. (19,5 x 28,1 cm) 206 p., 7 h. de índice. Escudo real grabado al cobre en portada por Peret. Plena piel de época, lomo con nervios, hierros dorados y tejuelo rojo: orden dl con dind. Magnífico ejemplar, muy limpio y en perfecto estado. Segunda edición de las Ordenanzas para la regulación del Consejo de Indias promulgadas por Felipe IV. El Consejo de Indias, o Real y Supremo Consejo de Indias fue creado por Carlos V en 1524 –a imitación del Consejo de Castilla– con el fin de atender el ámbito político-administrativo de América. Ejercía plena jurisdicción sobre todo el territorio y sus residentes, y tenía capacidad jurídica para ordenar y ejecutar toda clase de ordenanzas, normas y reglamentos que fueran para el bien de su región administrada. Sólo el rey estaba sobre el Consejo de Indias. Al principio el Consejo de Indias carecía de Ordenanzas propias, se regía con las Ordenanzas del Consejo de Castilla y, gracias a las Leyes Nuevas de 1542, una especie de Constitución Política del Nuevo Mundo, se le consignaron algunas peculiaridades relativas a su funcionamiento, jurisdicción y defensa de los indios. En 1571 se promulgan las primeras ordenanzas específicas para el Consejo de Indias –las llamadas ordenanzas ovandinas, por Juan de Ovando– que estarán vigentes hasta que en 1636 Felipe IV promulge un nuevo texto, fruto del trabajo de Pedro de Vivanco, Juan Solorzano y León Pinelo, éste que ofrecemos.

        Combatting the Devil: COMBATE ESPIRITUAL ESCRITO POR EL VENERALE SCUPOLIU

      Joseph Forcada, Barcelona, Spain 1681 - AN EXCEEDING RARE SPIRITUAL TREATISE, VIRTUALLY UNKNOWN IN SUCH AN EARLY SPANISH EDITION, AND THE BOOK USED AS AN EARLY CONVERSION MANUAL IN THE NEW WORLD. Printed 1681 in Fine Original Vellum with gilt! COMBATTING OF THE DEVIL! The Book: Scupoli, Lorenzo (1530-1610); (Juan de Castaniza) (d. 1598), COMBATE ESPIRITUAL ESCRITO POR EL VENERALE SCUPOLIU. Barcelona, Joseph Forcada, 1681, 64mo. Fine contemporary limp vellum with gilt blindstamping, usual woodcut illustrated title of the devil firing an arrow into the breastplate of a Christian soldier. 452 pgs and tabla, complete. A precious Spanish edition of this classic treatise on evangelical perfection through spiritual exercises, including several chapters in partcular to the promotion of Christian faith and the combatting of the devil, as evidenced particularly in the title and frontispiece illustration. This manual was among the often used in the New World for conversion of the native from their "vices and the snares of the devil." There are no traces of the first Spanish edition. The present volume is among the earliest surviving Spanish copies, all of which are extremely rare, and the next readily traceable one being from 1722. Scupoli, Lorenzo (1530-1610); (Juan de Castaniza) (d. 159. Combate espiritual, o Tratado de la perfeccion Christiana. Traduxolo en la lengua Espanola de la Italiana, y de la Latina; y lo consagra, a la Emperatriz y Reina nuestra Senora, Don Damian Gonzalez del Cueto doctor en ambos derechos. Vienna, Johann Baptist Schilgen, 1722. A precious illustrated Spanish edition of this classic treatise on evangelical perfection through spiritual exercises, Combattimento spirituale (The spiritual combat), with engravings by Martin Engelbrecht. This work is commonly attributed to Juan de Castaniza, who is here identified in the preface. Castaniza, a Benedictine monk of Ona active in Italy, was known for his chronicles of the life of P. Rivadeneyra and St. Romuald. The work was written by the Italian father Lorenzo Scupoli, however, and translated shortly after its appearance by Castaniza into Spanish. Combate espiritual, in this pocket-sized and compact duodecimo format, is a handbook of devotional exercises presented in sixty-six chapters, modeled after Loyola's famous text. It aims at perfecting the soul through prayer, meditation, and examination of the conscience. It is thus a guide for the conquest of the spirit over unruly passions, the senses, and conscious acts, offering a method for self-regulation leading to virtue and salvation. Indeed, it prescribes the imitation of Christ's life through empathic contemplation on the Passion, assisted by the text and images. The stirring devotional image of the Crucifixion, engraved by Engelbrecht (1684-1756), depicts the cross as the fountain of life ("apud me est fons vitae"); Christ's blood pours into the cups of his disciples who stand at his feet. The engraving is appropriate for the work, a visual experience provoking empathy for Christ through inward meditation and complete sensitization through reflection on the image. The frontispiece, also by Engelbrecht, depicts Christ as the exemplar of complete virtue. An unsigned engraving of St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622) accompanies a short elegy by this great ascetic bishop of Geneva, who endorsed in his spiritual teachings the mortification of the senses, will, and mind for the sake of perfection. The more simple depiction of St. Francis de Sales is likely produced by a different engraver, as Engelbrecht's compositions are here characterized by fully-modeled figures and atmospheric effects through the use of fine linework. Engelbrecht was the brother of Christian Engelbrecht (1672-1735). These well-known printsellers and engravers were dominant figures in Augsburg at this time, and are remembered for their portrait studies, and their landscape, religious and allegorical illustrations. Martin is also noted for his engravings used in perspective boxes or peepshows. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
