SWAMMERDAM, J.
Ou l'on expose clairement la manière lente & presqu' insensible de l'accroissement de leurs membres, & ou l'on decouvre evidemment l'erreur ou l'on tombe d'ordinaire au sujet de leur prétendué transformation. Utrecht, G. de Walcheren, 1682. Small-4to. pp. (8), 215, (1), with woodcut title-vignette, 1 folded table and 13 (10 folded) engraved plates. Contemporary boards, spine with 2 red gilt lettered labels. Hagen II, 209; Horn & Schenkling 21794; Nissen ZBI, 4054. First French edition; the original Dutch edition was published in 1669, entitled 'Historia Insectorum generalis'. "Swammerdam's thesis about insects was fundamentally new and significant. For his contemporaries, as for Aristotle, there existed three good arguments, that not only placed the insects far from the higher animals, but even tended to remove them from the realm of subjects open to scientific study. These arguments were: insects lack internal anatomy; they originate by spontaneous generation; and they develop by metamorphosis. Swammerdam believed that all three arguments were false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas" (D.S.B. XIII, pp. 168-175). One leaf with 2 small tears.

TUKE, Richard
London, printed for John Hancock & Enoch Prosser 1682.. Sm. 8vo, small engraved portrait by Van Hove (cut round & mounted), [8], 150 pp., advt leaf, early marginalia in brown ink, slightly browned & foxed, later morocco. Wing T3227. Only edition, scarce. The body of a wool merchant, Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey (1621-1678), was found in a ditch on Primrose Hill in 1678. He was certainly murdered, and the murder was probably in some way connected with his having taken the deposition of Titus Oates on the alleged Popish plot, but the mystery has never been cleared up. Primrose Hill was then known as Greenberry Hill; and one of the oddities of the case is that the three men charged with his murder were called Green, Berry and Hill (round up the usual suspects?). This is the most important contemporary source; it concludes with two poems. This copy is annotated in a contemporary hand on the title and elsewhere by someone very interested - perhaps in some way involved? - in the case. ESTC calls for a portrait, but I am not certain that the one here is not a replacement. vf21

Riss (2 cm), innen etwas fleckig. Barbier I, 553 (2. Aufl.). Erfolgreiches Werk des venezianische Rabbis Leon da Modena (1571-1648) das in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt wurde. Leone da Modena (Jehuda Arje di Modena, auch Leo Mutinensis, Judah Arye) jüdisch und profanwissenschaftlich gebildeter, äußerst eloquenter Autor, Dichter, Lehrer und (von Juden und Christen) gesuchter Prediger, venezianischer Rabbiner, Übersetzer, Verfasser einer Autobiographie und zahlreicher Schriften verschiedensten Inhalts und gilt als eine der kompliziertesten und undurchsichtigsten Persönlichkeiten der jüdisch-italienischen Kultur seiner Zeit. Leone führte ein unruhiges Leben: Er nahm einen Beruf nach dem anderen auf und wurde ein besessener Spieler, was ihn und seine Familie oft in finanzielle Bedrängnis brachte. Sein Lieblingssohn Mordechai starb im November 1617 bei alchimistischen Experimenten, in deren Folge ihn sein Vater tödlich vergiftet hatte. Das traf Leone Modena schwer, er unterzog sein bisheriges Leben einer strengen Selbstprüfung, deren Frucht die äußerst widersprüchliche Autobiographie chajje Jehuda ist, eine offen-ehrliche Abrechnung, in der er sich als gescheiterte Existenz bekennt und mit der er in seiner Zeit einzigartig dasteht.

BLAEU, IOANNES.
Amsterdam, 1682 circa. Dal "Theatrum Sabaudiae", incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 48,5 x 64,2 (alla lastra) pi? margini. Intorno alla met? del XVII secolo, per il Ducato dei Savoia, attento al proprio ruolo politico, si imponeva la diffusione di un'immagine magnifica che solo un'opera editoriale di grandiose proporzioni avrebbe potuto assicurare: un libro figurato, ove immagini e testi risultassero reciproco completamento per la celebrazione della dinastia. Nasceva cos?, presso i Blaeu, intorno al 1661, il "Theatrum Statuum Regiae Celsitudinis Sabaudiae Ducis Pedemontii Principis Cypri Regis", manifesto politico del duca di Savoia, diretto a tutte le altri corti europee. Nell'opera (due volumi in folio), le incisioni si fanno testimonianza ed esaltazione della grandezza del sovrano: nel primo tomo, alle antiporte, ritratti, dediche e carte geografiche, fanno seguito le vedute della citt? capitale con le sue piazze, i suoi pi? insigni edifici civili e religiosi, le certose e le abbazie, i castelli e le altre strutture di difesa dello Stato, tutti attributi di decoro e magnificenza; seguono quindi le vedute delle principali citt? del ducato. Il secondo volume descrive le terre della Savoia, del Vercellese e del Monferrato, i monumenti storici e archeologici del ducato e le cose da contemplare, perch? straordinarie. L'opera riproduceva grosso modo lo schema di precedenti imprese editoriali realizzate dai Blaeu (? chiaro il riferimento al "Teatro delle citt? principali delle Fiandre..").

MASON, William, fl. 1672-1709
London, printed for the author 1682.. engr. throughout (signed 'Ben: Rhodes sculpsit' on title), 24 leaves (all numbered except for f.l: portrait) printed on one side & arranged as 12 openings, very nice copy in orig. sheep ('Price bound 1s. 6d.' on title), some abrasion but joints perfect. Wi ng M941A; Alston VIII, 146. First edition, first state (?) of Mason's second shorthand book. The two states differ in the imprint, which here reads: "Neare the Royal Exchange. Where the books are to be had, & such as desire to learn. may (by him) be expediciously taught, at very reasonable rates; the booke is also sold by these book-sellers. Mr. Benj. Alsop at the Angel & Bible in the Poultry. Mr. Wilkins at ye Starr in Cheap side. Mr. Ben: Harris under ye Royall Exch: Mr. Thom Fox in Westminster Hall: and severall others". The second (?) state substitutes Jacob Sampson for Benjamin Harris.Such a change is common enough with moveable type, where it is easy, but here the title has been completely re-engraved. This needs good cause and I suggest that it was Benjamin Harris rather than Jacob Sampson who had to drop out of the enterprise: he was constantly in trouble with the authorities and at this time was in deep, fined the huge sum of £500 and put in the pillory for publishing his Protestant Petition, April 30, 1681. He continued his business in England ("an uneasie place for honest men", said his friend John Dunton) until his difficulties led him to move to Boston in 1686 - where he both became the first American journalist and published the New England Primer.

Rose, Giles
London: Printed for R. Bentley and M. Magnes, 1682. Duodecimo,Title leaf, [22], 563 pages [lacking pages 481-504]. With 41 pages of woodcuts of which a few illustrate table settings and the majority illustrate the carving of various fowl (capon, turkey, goose, duck, pigeon, woodcock, partridge, pheasant, etc.), veal, mutton, wild boar, pig, hare, fish, and lobster and the decorative carving of fruit. First and only English edition of one of the most important titles of 17th Century French gastronomy, and one of the rarest cookery books in the English language. There are few recorded copies and most all existing copies appear to be imperfect, i.e. primarily lacking pages. Bitting notes, "Despite the claim 'The like never before extant in any language,' the book is a translation of 'L'Escole parfaite des officiers de bouches,' first published in 1662. The English translation is much scarcer than the original." In six books, (here translated): "Steward of the Family", "The Great Master Carver", "The Royal Butler", "The Royal Confectioner", "The Royal French Master Cook", and "The Royal Pastry Man". Verso of title page with margins strengthened and old repairs to pages 5-6 and 11-12 in the lower margin and pages 9-10 in the lower quarter with some little loss of text. Rebacked in full brown calf with spine label, with original boards. A good or better copy. [OCLC indicates eight copies only; Bitting p. 407; Cagle 970; Wing R1933. ].

Celui-ci est relié avec la relation (en complément) de Thomas Le Gendre, « Lettre écrite en réponse » (Turbet-Delof, 218).

Mark Catesby (1682-1749)Plate from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama IslandsLondon: 1731 - 1743; [1731-1771, 3rd edition]Hand-colored copper-plate engraving20" x 14"; 24" x 20 1/2" framedIn 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Widely considered a crowning achievement of 18th-century art and science, Catesby’s Natural History … [Click Below for Full Description]

Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Widely considered a crowning achievement of 18th-century art and science, Catesby’s Natural History … [Click Below for Full Description]

Restauration à la coiffe supérieure. NOUVELLE EDITION de ce commentaire des livres I à VI, XI et XII du traité géométrique d'Euclide. Nombreuses figures dans le texte. Les "Eléments de géométrie" d'Euclide ont joué pendant plus de deux mille ans un rôle de toute PREMIERE IMPORTANCE ; l'étude de sa tradition est jusqu'au XVIIIe un ASPECT ESSENTIEL de l'histoire de la géométrie. Rappelons que ces "Eléments" se composent de 13 livres dont les 6 premiers sont consacrés à la géométrie plane. Les livres 7, 8 et 9 traitent des propriétés des nombres rationnels et le livre 10 des irrationnels. Les 11e, 12e et 13e livres développent la mesure des volumes : parallélépipèdes, prismes et pyramides, ainsi que les rapports des volumes du cône, du cylindre et de la sphère. On y trouve aussi la construction des cinq polyèdres réguliers. La première édition, latine, de l'édition de Dechalles, date de 1660 ; la première traduction française a été imprimée en 1676. Claude François Milliet DECHALLES (1621-1678), entra dans la compagnie de Jésus dès l'âge de 14 ans, et développa un goût irrésistible vers l'étude des mathématiques lors d'un voyage en Turquie. Ses ouvrages sont réputés pour leur clarté.

Erfolgreiches Werk des venezianische Rabbis Leon da Modena (1571-1648) das in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt wurde. Leone da Modena (Jehuda Arje di Modena, auch Leo Mutinensis, Judah Arye) jüdisch und profanwissenschaftlich gebildeter, äußerst eloquenter Autor, Dichter, Lehrer und (von Juden und Christen) gesuchter Prediger, venezianischer Rabbiner, Übersetzer, Verfasser einer Autobiographie und zahlreicher Schriften verschiedensten Inhalts und gilt als eine der kompliziertesten und undurchsichtigsten Persönlichkeiten der jüdisch-italienischen Kultur seiner Zeit. Leone führte ein unruhiges Leben: Er nahm einen Beruf nach dem anderen auf und wurde ein besessener Spieler, was ihn und seine Familie oft in finanzielle Bedrängnis brachte. Sein Lieblingssohn Mordechai starb im November 1617 bei alchimistischen Experimenten, in deren Folge ihn sein Vater tödlich vergiftet hatte. Das traf Leone Modena schwer, er unterzog sein bisheriges Leben einer strengen Selbstprüfung, deren Frucht die äußerst widersprüchliche Autobiographie chajje Jehuda ist, eine offen-ehrliche Abrechnung, in der er sich als gescheiterte Existenz bekennt und mit der er in seiner Zeit einzigartig dasteht.

Marca de anterior poseedor. * Novela escrita originalmente en francés por Madeleine de Scudéry (1607-1701), escritora y hermana menor del también literato Georges de Scudéry. Presentamos la que fue considerada, por algunos críticos, la primera novela moderna que mostraba de forma más o menos explícita las simpatías de su autora por la Fronda, el movimiento insurreccional que tuvo lugar en Francia durante la regencia de Ana de Austria. Madeleine, a través de sus personajes, muestra su aversión hacia el matrimonio y el convencimiento de que, tras la insurrección, las mujeres no podrían manifestar su talento y conocimineto más que en el ámbito privado. Considerada la primera escritora francesa y figura destacada del preciosismo, se hacía llamar Safo y construía personajes que podían identificarse con algunos de sus contemporáneos. Instituyó, todos los sábados, una serie de sesiones literarias a las que acudían varias celebridades del momento. Scudéry escribió un gran número de novelas galantes en clave de las que la más larga fue precisamente Artamène ou le Grand Cyrus (1649-1653).
