        1683 Miscellanea Curiosa MEDICINE Brain Surgery Melancholy Tumors Constellations

      Norimbergae, : Sumptibus Wolfgangi Mauritii Endteri., Anno M.DC.LXXXIII. [1683]. Second edition. - 1683 Miscellanea Curiosa MEDICINE Brain Surgery Melancholy Tumors Constellations This rare 17th-century medical book, “Miscellanea Curiosa”, is a large collection of essays, treatises, and commentary by various physicians and medical experts from the 16th- and 17th-centuries. This annual periodical, beginning in 1670, was the world’s first trade journal to focus on medicine and natural sciences. It was founded by the Academia Naturae Curiosorum, who intended it to serve more as a medical journal. However, into the 17th-century the journal reintroduced more of a focus on other scientific disciplines. The Academy of Natural Sciences is the oldest natural sciences & medicine academy in the German-speaking world and is longest running natural science academy in the world. This volume is predominantly medical, dealing with human and animal anatomies, cures for disease, as well as identifying diseases through symptoms. The incredibly detailed, engraved title page lists six areas of study (Animalia, Mineralia, Vegetabilia, Anatomica, Chymia, Botanica) but the contents elude to an emphasis on medicine. Illustrations and contents include: • Instruments used in brain surgery • Animal skeletons, bones • Human organs, kidneys, lungs • Star and constellation charts • Asthma treatments • Conception – association between sperm and seed, fermentation • Infant colic • Epilepsy, convulsions • Suffocation from hysteria • Magnetism, animal • Melancholy, hypochondria • Tumors • Tuberculosis • Ulcers & hemorrhages Item number: #880 Price: $1250 GERBEC, Marko; et al Miscellanea curiosa sive Ephemeridum medico-physicarum Germanicarum Academiae Naturae Curiosorum, decuriae II. annus primus, anni M.DC.LXXXII. : Continens celeberrimorum virorum, tum medicorum, tum aliorum eruditorum in Germania & extra eam observationes medicas, physicas, chymicas, nec non mathematicas.

        Paradossi per praticare la Prospetiva senza saperla,

      fiori per facilitare l'intelligenza, frutti per non operare alla cieca. Cognitioni necessarie a pittori, scultori, ed a qualunque si diletta di disegno. Bologna, Gioseffo Longhi, 1683, - 3 parti in un vol. in-4, pp. (8), 120 (per le parti I-II); (4), 64 (parte III); leg. p. perg. antica. Opera adorna di un gran numero di figure a piena pag. inc. su legno, racchiuse in bordura floreale: elementi di prospettiva, figure geometriche animate da figure umane e strumenti; numerosi culs-de-lampe e capilettera ornati; al verso del tit. una grande silografia, ripetuta a pag. 13 (la lezione di prospettiva). La parte II inizia a pag. 49; la parte III ha front. proprio. Seconda edizione delle prime due parti (infatti erano già state pubblicate l'anno precedente dagli ''heredi del Peri'') e prima edizione della terza parte. Opera rara a trovarsi completa della terza parte, una delle migliori tra le antiche opere sulla prospettiva, pregevole anche per la qualità delle incisioni "espresse con chiarezza di disegno". Interessa anche la scenografia (cfr. Leclerc: Les origines italiennes de l'architecture théatrale moderne, p. 181) e l'architettura militare. Esempl. puro e marginoso. ''Troili, a pupil of the quadratura painter Michelangelo Colonna, became scene painter for the Farnese theatre at Parma. Ferdinando Bibiena saw his work there (probably after the artist's death) and absorbed its influence. This original edition of Troili's exceptionally handsome book on perspective is one of the real milestones in the history of theatrical scenery: it describes the conscious use of visual deception, the creation of greater 'depth' by means of oblique positioning of the wings, as common practice twenty years before Pozzo'' (Breman in Architectural Theory and Practice III-B-24). Fowler n. 347, note. Riccardi II, 561-2. Cicognara 866: "Si insegnano molte buone pratiche, ed è uno de' migliori libri in questo genere". Berlin Kat. 4722. J. Baltrusaitis, Anamorfosi, pp.19-23.

        Relation du Voyage de Monseigneur l'evesque de Beryte, Vicaire Apostolique du Royaume de la Cochinchine [bound with] Relation abregee des mission et des voyages aux Royaumes de la Chine, Cochinchine, Tonquin & Siam

      A finely bound copy of the first French accounts of Siam -that of Bourges-, with early relations on China, Vietnam, Tonkin and the East Indies. The Bourges is in its third edition and the Pallu in its second edition (all editions are rare). Father de Bourges (c.1630 - 1714) was a member of the first Catholic mission to Siam, arriving with his two fellow missionaries in 1662 to Ayuthaya. Since Siam was tolerant of other religions it became a safe place for the missionaries to establish themselves, and in 1664 a second group led by Monseigneur Pallu joined the fathers in Siam after a two-year journey overland. Francois Pallu (1626 - 1684) was a French Bishop and missionary in Asia and a founding member of the Paris Foreign Missions Society; he was originally recruited by Alexander de Rhodes and sent to the Far East along with other missionaries -namely La Motte. Both volumes together combine a considerable portion of the French knowledge of the East at the end of the 17th century. Distinguished provenance: Charles de Lorraine (possibly Charles III, Duke de Elbeuf), his signature on the first title page. Cordier Sinica, 827.

        De cymbalis veterum, libri tres, in quibus quaecunque ad eorum nomina, differentiam, originem, historiam, ministros, ritus pertinent, elucidantur.Utrecht, Willem van Poolsum, 1703. 12mo. With an ornamental woodcut vignette on title, an engraved title-page by H. de Blois after Gerard Hoet (1648-1733) and 10 engraved plates. Contemporary vellum.

      Kat. Musik Bibl. Paul Hirsch I, 300; Cat. Muziekhist. Museum Scheurleer I, p. 328. Second edition, and first and only edition printed in the Netherlands, of a treatise on the history of cymbals in classical antiquity. With meticulous precision, the author traces the etymology and history of cymbals, one of the oldest instruments in history. In the first of the three parts of the book, Lampe treats the name and origin of cymbals. The second part is devoted to the shapes of cymbals and the materials used. The third part investigates the use of the instrument in (religious) rites and plays. Several plates of antiques statues, objects and instruments illustrate the narrative.Friedrich Adolph Lampe (1683-1728) was a minister and professor at the University of Utrecht. De cymbalis, written when he was merely 17 and published in Bremen, forms an exception in his oeuvre, as all his writings concern theology and church history. His magnum opus, a history of the reformation in Hungary and Transylvania, was published in 1728.With several shelf marks pasted and written on the spine, a written shelf mark on the pastedown, an 18th-century(?) library inscription on the first endpaper and a library stamp on back of the title-page. Binding soiled but otherwise a very good copy.

Le Long tells us (pp. 572-573) it was designed around 1700 by the lawyer Nicolaas Listingh (ca. 1635-post 1705), warden of Amsterdam's Oude Kerk, who built a wooden model at that time and had his drawings engraved on 17 whole and half-sheet copperplates by Daniel Stoopendaal (1672-1726). With library and deaccession stamps. Upper margin of preliminary pages with faint waterstain, folding plate with a tear where the folds cross, otherwise in very good condition.

        Description de la Louisiane, nouvellement decouverte au Sud-Oüest de la Nouvelle France

      First edition. Hennepin (1626 - c.1701) was a Franciscan missionary and explorer; he received orders to travel to Canada in an expedition approved by the powerful Minister Colbert and commanded by the King of France, accompanying Rene Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle, recently appointed to the governorship of Fort Frontenac, in Nouvelle France. In 1675 they set sail, the vessel carried also Francois de Laval de Montmorency, Bishop of Quebec, whose acquaintance proved useful in Canada. Upon making port in the French dominions of Canada, Hennepin began travelling without comfort throughout the region, providing us testimony of his explorer spirit, his luggage often being carried by dogs, at other times by canoe (Catholic Encyclopedia); these experiences gained him knowledge on the language and customs of the natives. In 1679, Hennepin joined the expedition led by La Salle through the Great Lakes; it is during this expedition that the Niagara Falls and the Saint Anthony Falls (Minneapolis) were discovered. In 1683, Hennepin's account was published, giving us with the first report of Niagara Falls, the first description of Louisiana, the first account of the headwaters of the Mississippi above the Wisconsin and the first map to name Louisiana. "This is the earliest printed account of La Salle's 1678-79 expedition to Illinois (and the building of Fort Crevecoeur), written by the explorer's close companion, Father Hennepin. It is the first to relate Hennepin's travels up the Mississippi, his discovery of the Falls of St. Anthony, and his captivity among the Sioux. It is also the first to describe Niagara Falls and to use the name Louisiana. The Description is considered Hennepin's most accurate work. A Recollect missionary who spent 11 years in America, he was one of the great pioneers of exploration in the western Great Lakes and the upper Mississippi." (Nebenzahl). The map, Carte de la Nouvelle France et de la Louisiane, is remarkably important, it's influence cannot be overstated as it is the first map to name Louisiana. Engraved by Roussel and embellished with a cartouche by N. Guerard. A rare book in the market, especially when complete with the map. Until 1999 (the Siebert Sale, Sotheby's New York, Oct 28, lot 660, u$s 48,875), no copy is registered at auction for over 25 years (AE). Nebenzahl offered a copy in 1979 for 5,500 u$s. Sabin, 31347.

A detailed and extensively illustrated history of the Reformation in Amsterdam, written by the great bible collector and bibliographer Isaac Le Long (1683-1762). It includes a double-page map of Amsterdam and illustrations of nearly all churches, monasteries and other religious institutions in Amsterdam, most notably the extraordinary great folding plate (ca. 52.5 x 69.5 cm) of the Botermarkt (now Rembrandtplein) with the magnificent domed Dutch Reformed Church that was never built. Le Long tells us (pp. 572-573) it was designed around 1700 by the lawyer Nicolaas Listingh (ca. 1635-post 1705), warden of Amsterdam's Oude Kerk, who built a wooden model at that time and had his drawings engraved on 17 whole and half-sheet copperplates by Daniel Stoopendaal (1672-1726). With library and deaccession stamps. Upper margin of preliminary pages with faint waterstain, folding plate with a tear where the folds cross, otherwise in very good condition.

        Relation du Voyage de Monseigneur l'evesque de Beryte, Vicaire Apostolique du Royaume de la Cochinchine [bound with] Relation abregee des mission et des voyages aux Royaumes de la Chine, Cochinchine, Tonquin & Siam

      Exceptionally bound, primary French source-books on Vietnam, Siam & and the Far East. 1683 & 1682. Paris. Charles Angot. Two volumes in one, in 8vo. Eighteenth-century sang-de-boeuf calf, triple rule gilt border to boards, spine richly gilt in compartments, all edges gilt, expertly recased, some wear to boards, corners very slightly bumped. A fine copy lightly browned, ownership inscription to first title. A finely bound copy of the first French accounts of Siam ?that of Bourges-, with early relations on China, Vietnam, Tonkin and the East Indies. The Bourges is in its third edition and the Pallu in its second edition (all editions are rare). Father de Bourges (c.1630 - 1714) was a member of the first Catholic mission to Siam, arriving with his two fellow missionaries in 1662 to Ayuthaya. Since Siam was tolerant of other religions it became a safe place for the missionaries to establish themselves, and in 1664 a second group led by Monseigneur Pallu joined the fathers in Siam after a two-year journey overland. Francois Pallu (1626 - 1684) was a French Bishop and missionary in Asia and a founding member of the Paris Foreign Missions Society; he was originally recruited by Alexander de Rhodes and sent to the Far East along with other missionaries ?namely La Motte. Both volumes together combine a considerable portion of the French knowledge of the East at the end of the 17th century. Distinguished provenance: Charles de Lorraine (possibly Charles III, Duke de Elbeuf), his signature on the first title page. Cordier Sinica, 827.

Quite rare. Full sheepskin vintage blonde. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. Upper joint open head and tail with gaps. Same lower joint split tail. Although the author establishes a history of chivalry and its laws and rules, it focuses on chivalry as undeniable proof of nobility, and how it stands out in the coats of arms belonging to the ancient chivalry. The history of the orders of chivalry and their impact on the nobility is particularly detailed. The author does not stop in his study of France and has spread to Europe. The book contains many historical details on the subject of great interest. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après l'originale parue en 1677. Illustrée de 3 panches contenant plusieurs blasons et de tableaux dépliants. Assez rare. Reliure en pleine basane blonde d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Mors supérieur ouvert en tête et queue avec manques. Idem mors inférieur fendu en queue. Bien que l'auteur établisse une histoire de la chevalerie et de ses lois et règles, il s'intéresse essentiellement à la chevalerie en tant que preuve indéniable de noblesse, et comment on distingue dans les blasons l'appartenance ancienne à la chevalerie. L'histoire des ordres de chevalerie et leurs conséquences sur la noblesse est plus particulièrement détaillé. L'auteur ne s'est pas arrêté dans son étude à la France et l'a étendue à l'Europe. L'ouvrage regroupe maints détails historiques sur le sujet du plus grand intérêt.

Francofurti ad Moenvm: Typis exscripti Wolfgangi Hoffmani, Impensa Matthaei Meriani, 1646-50. Two volumes, folio, [xl], 8, 1154, [21], [3] pp.; [xxxiv], 984, [20] pp., woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, engraved title-pages, vignette on printed titles, four illustrations in text, engraved portrait of Lotichius, and 115 engraved plates the vast majority of which are double-page, including six maps, and six four-page folding views of battles. Contemporary paneled calf, roll-tolled in gilt and blind with fleuron cornerpieces in blind, six raised bands with seven elaborately gilt compartments, title stamped in gilt to two compartments, armorial centerpiece in top compartment and calligraphic monogram at tail, marbled edges and endpapers. Joints, bands, and extremities a bit rubbed, boards slightly scufffed with a few small areas of superficial worming, small tears in backstrips of both volumes at head and tails. The text is printed on inferior stock with light to moderate foxing and some minor internal defects (small wormhole, faint dampstains, one small burn hole, a few trivial wax stains), plates are printed on high quality hand-made paper, and are completely clean and bright, overall a very good set. First edition. This is a rare copy of a massive chronicle covering the reigns of three Hapsburg rulers, with detailed coverage of the 30 Years War. At least as important, it is a book full of wonderful engravings that provide a convincing view of the Medieval cities and other environs where the events in the present account unfold. The first of our Hapsburgs , Matthias (1557-1619), a son of the German emperor Maximilian II, showed an early aptitude for political affairs and was king of Hungary and Bohemia (both then in the Hapsburg realm) long before, on his brother?s death, he succeeded in 1612 to power in Austria in the position of German Emperor. Matthias being childless, was followed by his cousin Ferdinand II, who was immediately challenged by Frederick of the Palatinate, whom the Bohemian Protestants favored for king and emperor. This contest triggered the 30 Years War, which drew in most of Europe. The conflict raged during much of the reign of Ferdinand III (ruled 1637-57), although he was anxious to procure peace, which was arranged (with no clear winner) in 1648, two years after our author began to publish his history. A revered physician and professor of medicine, Johann Peter Lotichius (or Lotich, 1598-1669) was appointed official historian of the German Empire. Amoung his publications are medical treatises, Latin poems, a work in praise of women, and a general imperial history beginning with Caesar and ending with Ferdinand II. The present work is most valued for its engravings, done by Matthaeus Merian (1593-1650), who was largely responsible for two of the most famous illustrated series ever published. The first, the ?Theatrum Europaeum,? was a massive set of 21 large folio volumes with a great deal of historical text punctuated with breathtaking engraved views. The second, called in aggregate simply the ?Topographia,? is a series comprising 30 folio volumes issued between 1642-88 and containing the largest number of engraved views of towns, villages, and castles ever assembled (Merian was responsible for the plates in the first 19 volumes, while his son and namesake furnished the others). In the present work is the same kind of artistry that made Merian famous in these other, larger undertakings. Here, as in the other series, the intricately realized city views (not infrequently seen as the focus of animated battle scenes), are exceptionally fine in detail and delicacy, achieving success in conveying a strong sense of place and atmosphere that earlier atlases full of urban views did not approach. As with all of the Merian topographical works, this one has several exceptionally fine views of mostly walled cities and towns that appear to be remarkable in the fidelity of their historical detail, impressive in the crystalline vividness of their engraved lines, and pleasing emotionally in the luminous tranquility they project. In this copy, those features are heightened by the rich quality of the engraved impressions which are rarely found complete. Brunet III 1180, Graesse IV 264.

Contemporary sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine and board edges.

      Hill I, pp. 75-78; Howgego D7; Sabin 18381. First French edition of William Dampier's account of his voyage around the world and especially to the south seas in the years 1683 to 1691. Dampier (1651-1715) sailed to Sierra Leone, from there to the Falkland Islands, Cape Horn, Peru, Guatemala, Mexico, the Philippines, Vietnam, China, Indonesia, and further to New Guinea, in the area which was to become known as Dampier Land. He went ashore in Australia, sailed on to Sumatra, the Cape of Good Hope, and back to Europe. Although John Brooke probably shipwrecked on the Australian coast in 1621 without knowing what it was, Dampier was otherwise the first Englishman to set foot in Australia. Dampier had spent several years as a buccaneer, but in the present book he diplomatically made no attempt to exploit the more sensational aspects of his adventures, concentrating on hydrographic, geographic and scientific details. This helped him establish his legitimacy, bringing immediate academic acclaim rather than condemnation as a pirate.With bookplates. The edge of 2 folding plates slightly tattered (not affecting the image) and a few minor marginal stains, but otherwise in very good condition. The bindings with minor stains and worn at the extremities and hinges but still good. First French edition of an account of an important voyage around the world, including the first successful English landing in Australia.

It appears to have been founded on Anti-Catholic sentiments (which would have been shared by Sir Thomas Phillipps later), which feared that Charles II was too closely allied to the Catholic rulers of Europe. An extremist Whig group plotted to hide troops in Rye House, a fortified castle in Hertfordshire, in order to ambush the king and duke as they passed on their way to the horse races at Newmarket. However, a fire in Newmarket caused their plans to change and the plotters were exposed, put on trial and imprisoned or executed. The present manuscript contains at its end the speeches made by two of the group at their executions. William, Lord Russell [1639-1683], M.P. for Bedfordshire, denies knowing of any plot, or having ever seen or spoken with the man who denounced him, but with resolution to his fate: "I have done with this world, and go to a better asking only that all sincere protestants may love one another, and not make way for popery by their Animosities." The speech of Algernon Sidney [1623-1683], M.P. and Baltic Ambassador, is more a formal anti-Catholic essay, citing the insurrection against Nero, the Slaughter of Caligula, or Domitian, the translation of the crown of France from Meroveus his Race unto Pepin and from his descendants unto Hugh Capet. Below this are the names of Peter D.

        The Sucking Fish

      - A very detailed hand colored engraving by Mark Catesby (1683-1749 from his breathtaking series "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands". This print is from the Third edition, published in London in 1731-44 [1771]. Overall this print is 14” x 20”. In 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 of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands has lost none of its power to delight in the 250 years since its publication. This remarkable study of American plants, animals, and marine life provided an important model for later artists, including John James Audubon, who followed in Catesby’s footsteps a century later. The works illustrated here are among the masterpieces of Catesby’s Natural History. The artist’s charming, distinctive style is immediately apparent in these engravings, and Catesby’s enthusiasm for his subjects is palpable. Aside from their esthetic charm, however, Catesby’s illustrations were significant for other reasons. His pioneering attempts to describe and portray birds accurately, life-sized, and in botanical settings set him apart from his contemporaries and foreshadowed the work of Audubon and Alexander Wilson. He was the first to abandon the Indian names for his subjects, trying to establish scientific names based on generic relationships. Indeed, the great Linnaeus, working on his Systema Naturae at this time, used Catesby’s work as the basis of his system of binomial nomenclature for American species. For all these and many other reasons, these are magnificent prints both for their beauty and importance. The quality of the work was so far superior to foregoing accounts that many scholars rank Catesby as the first real naturalist in America. Overall this print is in very good condition with some light foxing and staining.
