        [3 signed autograph letters to Theodorus Janssonius van Almeloveen, 2 by De Heide and 1 by Altius]. Middelburg, 2 October 1681, 31 August [1681/87]; Harderwijk, 6 May 1697. 4to (20×16 & 21×16.5 cm). The 2nd and 3rd each with most of the writer's red wax heraldic seal and the 1st with a shadow of a lost seal.

      Three signed autograph letters mostly discussing medical matters, the first written on 2 October 1681 beginning with comments about Antoni van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723) and his recent discovery of blood cells. All three letters were written to the physician Theodorus Janssonius van Almeloveen (1657-1712), the first two from the physician and medical researcher Anton de Heide and the third from the Dutch Reformed preacher Robertus Altius (ca. 1650?-1699). De Heide and Van Almeloveen were leading physicians of their day and De Heide published works that included information about blood and blood circulation in the years 1682 to 1686. After the comments about Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, De Heide goes on to discuss other medical matters, referring to the Dutch-born court physician at Berlin Cornelis Bontekoe (ca. 1645?-1685) and the London scientist and founder of modern chemistry Robert Boyle (1627-1691).The second letter begins with references to the surveying of a river on Walcheren, then still an island, where De Heide lived in the city of Middelburg. It goes on to discuss medical matters, including the spread of an animal epidemic from Germany to the Netherlands. He also refers to the classical Greek physician Rufus Ephesius (active ca. 100 AD).Altius's rather chatty letter refers to Cleopatra's banquet and to Hercules.De Heide's 1681 letter discussing Van Leeuwenhoek is in very good condition and his other letter (of 1681/87) is also very good except that it has a small stain affecting but not obscuring a few words and is somewhat dirty. The 1697 letter is browned and has some tears along the fold. Three signed autograph letters related to medicine, one with a discussion of Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and his new discovery of blood cells.

Small woodcut on the title. A portrait of Thomas Munckerus engraved by H. Causse. In the 'Poeticon Astronomicon' of Hyginus we find 43 fine text engraving of constellations and signs of the zodiac, which are engraved after the engravings by Jacob de Gheyn, and which were originally published in Hugo Grotii 'Syntagma Arateorum', Leiden 1600) (Condition: Vellum slightly soiled; small stain on right upper corner of the frontcover, large light stain on backcover; the ties are lacking) (Note: The first part of this collection begins with the 'Fabulae', a handbook of mythology compiled from Greek sources, and the 'Poeticon Astronomicum', a manual of astronomy, also from Greek sources, both works attributed to a Hyginus. The second part contains mythological works of the 'mythographus' Fabius Planciades Fulgentius, ca. 500, Lactantius Placidus, 6th century, and ends with 'De Deorum imaginibus libellus' of Albricus Philosophus, an influential mythographer, who according to Worldcat lived in the 13th century. The Dutch schoolmaster Thomas Muncker, or Munckerus, who was Rector of the Schola Latina of Delft from 1667 till 1680, is best known for his edition of the 'Mythographi Latini'. He produced also an edition of Antoninus Liberalis in 1676. Saxe called him 'cathedra Academica dignissimus' (Van der Aa, 12/2, 1148). On the portrait is depicted a young and vigorous man with a big wig and a dressing gown. Nevertheless, he died before the book was published) (Provenance; The prize is for one Albertus Coenen, who must have been ca. 14 years old. He received the prize on the occasion of his promotion as the first of his class from the 5th to the 4th grade. We found a dissertation (University Utrecht, 9 Juni 1836, cum laude) of one Albertus Coenen van 's Gravesloot: 'Dissertatio De querela falsi' Utrecht, Altheer, 1836. Van der Aa learns us that Jonkheer Mr. Albert Coenen van 's Gravesloot owned in 1843 the Seigniory 's Gravesloot in the province of Utrecht. The village housed 20 families and was 3,5 hour walk from city of Utrecht, where the Jonkheer actually lived. Genealogieonline.nl tells us that he was born 27 July 1809 in Utrecht. He died 24 December 1859 in Utrecht, where he was councilor of the provincial court of Utrecht) (Collation: * - 3*-8, 4*-4; A - 2K-8 (min 2K8),2L-8, 2M-2; A - Y-8, Z-2) (Photographs on request).

        The Connexion: Being Choice Collections of Some Principal Matters in King James his Reign

      London - W. Crook, 1681. London - W. Crook, 1681 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce first edition of this fascinating collection of the proclamations and decrees of King James I, along with other important events in his reign including his proclamation to repress piracy and illegal marine activities, the case of Sir John Kenneda and Lady Kenneda&#39;s marriage annulment and speeches by Sir Francis Bacon. The author&#39;s intended purpose for this volume is declared on the title page, being to, &#39;serve to supply the Vacancy betwixt Mr. Townsend&#39;s and Mr. Rushworth&#39;s Historical Collections. &#39; The Mr Rushworth to whom he refers is almost certainly John Rushworth, an historian and politician who began to document significant events in the 1630sand:&#39;did personally attend and observe all Occurrences of moment during the Eleven years Interval of Parliament, in the Star-Chamber, Court of Honour, and Exchequer-Chamber, when all the Judges of England met there upon extraordinary Cases; at the Council Table, when great Causes were heard before the King and Council. &#39; (Rushworth, Collections, pt 1, sigs. b4r, bv). He took notes in shorthand, and these records formed the basis of his subsequent history of the period. In 1641 Rushworth began to buy news pamphlets and periodicals; from December 1641 he usually bought one newsbook a week and formed an impressive collection of these early periodicals, which he annotated, underlined, and commented on. They subsequently formed one element of his major work, Historical Collections. Condition: The volume is disbound, with the binding entirely absent. The hinges are tender, with some pieces of text block separated but present. The pages are generally bright and clean, with little to no spotting save on the first and last few pages. Overall: FAIR..

Beautifully bound in modern royal blue half-leather over marbled boards, spine in five compartments separated by raised bands, gilt title in one compartments, date at foot, brown endpapers, all edges gilt.

The following information is written in what appears to be a fine 18th century hand on the verso of the ffep: "This rare volume was supposed to have been written by Cardinal Allen, Father Parsons the Jesuit and Sir F. Englefield. Such was the alarm excited by this appearance, that an act passed in the 35th of Elizabeth making it high treason for any person to have a copy in his possession, which may account for its great scarcity.

        John Selden, Of the Judicature in Parliaments, A Posthumous Treatise: Wherein, The Controversies and Precedents belonging to that Title, are Methodically Handled

      Printed for Joseph Lawson Bookseller. Printed for Joseph Lawson Bookseller. First edition, one of three issues in 1681.. Some smudges and foxing; very good copy.. Wing 2433. 8vo, modern calf, gilt lettering. Part of a larger work on parliamentary procedure and history by Henry Elsynge (1577-1635), a parliamentary official, but not published until after his lifetime: "Elsynge played an important part in the codification of the procedure of the House of Lords and in the development and preservation of its records. His principal claim to recognition is as a scholar and historian of parliament, using the original documents to which his official positions at the Tower and at Westminster gave him access. His studies formed the basis of his treatise on parliament entitled The Manner of Holding Parliaments in England . . . which remained unfinished at his death. Subsequently various parts have been published. Book 1 first appeared in 1660. A chapter on judicature, formerly attributed in error to John Selden, appeared in an imperfect form in 1681 . . . " The attribution to John Selden remains to this day in many catalogue entries, including ESTC. An interesting copy, with corrections, annotations and substantial additions on more than 25 pages. On the title-page are two signatures: the first has been marked through and difficult to read, but is possibly the signature of author Fabian Philipps (1601-1690), who was interested in matters of parliamentary procedure and history; and the second signature is that of Edward Ward, possibly the judge and lawyer, Sir Edward Ward (1638-1714).

        A New Digester or Engine for Softning Bones : Containing the Description of Its Make and Use in These Particulars : Viz. Cookery, Voyages At Sea, Confectionary, Making of Drinks, Chymistry, and Dying

      London : Printed by J.M. for Henry Bonwicke 1681 - [8], 52 p. : ill. Bound in fine modern brown leather. Gilt lettering on front cover. Fine binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages with some tanning. Marginal chipping and loss to title page and final page. Title page and final page reinforced. New end pages. Frontispiece and folding plates are absent. Wing P309 & P308. Ships daily. Denis Papin was a French physicist, mathematician and inventor, best known for his pioneering invention of the steam digester. The steam digester (or bone digester, and also known as Papins digester) is a high-pressure cooker invented by French physicist Denis Papin in 1679. It is a device for extracting fats from bones in a high-pressure steam environment, which also renders them brittle enough to be easily ground into bone meal. It is the forerunner of the autoclave and the domestic pressure cooker. The steam-release valve, which was invented for Papin's digester following various explosions of the earlier models, inspired the development of the piston-and-cylinder steam engine. Wing P309, P308.

      Per Gio. Recaldini,, in Bologna, 1681 - In-8°, pp. (12), 500, (16), legatura coeva p. pergamena con titolo e fregio manoscritti in antico al dorso (computi vergati anticamente al piatto posteriore). Titolo calligrafato in antico al taglio di piede. Dedicatoria al Marchese Luca degli Albizzi, fregi xilografici. Sparsi aloni, segnatamente dalla p. 515 sino ala fine del volume (particolarmente fastidiosi alle ultime carte). Lacune alle cuffie. Discreto stato. Unico volume pubblicato in questa edizione del corpus epistolare del noto gesuita ligure (Genova, 1600-Roma, 1681); le lettere, indirizzate a sovrani, aristocratici, alti ecclesiastici e personalità di tutta l'Europa, formano un significativo affresco della vita e del costume dell'età barocca. "His chief aim was to remove all causes of dissension and of personal friction between his institute and other religious orders, towards which he showed himself most reverent and yielding. He extended and increased the missions, creating new ones outside of Europe, especially in Japan. His book of forty-odd sermons for Lent, and his work of six folio volumes, "In Selecta Scripturae Loca Ethicae Commentationes", printed at Lyons, evince his scholarship and piety. He took a keen interest in the events of his time. Remembering what had happened to Cardinal Palavicino, Oliva printed one thousand of his letters, in order that they might not be printed by others and be misconstrued." (Luigi Tacchi-Venturi in The Catholic Encyclopaedia). Manca alla Vinciana. Cfr.

He became an influential evangelical figure in London from the later 1670s, in partnership with Richard Smithies, curate of St Giles-without-Cripplegate, an historic Anglican church in London. He became so popular as a preacher to overflowing congregations that it was said that his parish extended from Whitechapel to Whitehall, reported by noted theologian and Anglican bishop Richard Kidder (1633-1703); and John Evelyn's Diary (18 March 1683) called him 'a person of saint-like life.' A student of the Bible and religious literature, and a casuist consulted in cases of conscience, he was well read in Arabic, Hebrew, and rabbinical literature. His books are chiefly devotional, and went through many editions down to 1730; some reprints appeared from 1846. This work, 'The Happy Ascetick,' was first published in 1681, the same year Horneck received his doctor of divinity degree from Cambridge. It was quite popular, and saw numerous subsequent editions, through the 19th century. Renowned English artist William Hogarth (1697-1764) engraved the frontispiece for the sixth edition of 'The Happy Ascetick,' which appeared in 1724. The prior owner of this volume, Rev. James Ford, was the brother of Richard Ford (1796-1858), author of the 1845 'Handbook for Travellers in Spain,' who lived near his brother in Heavitree House, now part of the Exeter Civic Society.
