        Instrumenta Curationis Morborum, deprompta ex Pharmacia, Chyrurgia, et Diaeta. De Instrmentis Pharmaceutiis ex Galenicis & Chymicis...

      Lyon:: Caesarem Chappuis, 1684.. Four parts in one. 12mo. [6], 363, [15] pp. Collation: A-Q12 Old vellum, yapp fore-edge, edges red; some expert repairs in signature A with minor loss, occ. other repairs (G7, with some loss), generally clean. Old stamp on t.p.: �Leop. Carol. Deutsche Akademie D. Naturforscher� [Leopoldina Carolina Deutsche Akademie, Halle (Saale)]. Very good. The first edition of this rare but popular seventeenth-century pharmaceutical treatise was issued in 1679, basing its medical and chemical science on that of Galen. The contents deal with disease, surgery, and diet, giving formulas or recipes. Organized into four parts, each part is sectioned. Some examples: Part II, sec. II, chapter II deals with discharges from the nose; another section deals with gargling [�gargarismate�]; part IV, chapter III deals with narcotics, including opium; chapter IV deals with sleep; chapter V discusses �blood flow�. Tenque�s formulae were famous for a long time. Based on what I have found the book was reissued in 1680, 1681, then this fourth printing of 1684. An expanded second edition was issued in 1686. Numerous later printings are beyond what is needed here. � The book opens with �De Julepo� and has already a sense in language of it being a liquor & syrup for medicinal use. Apparently derived from the Arabic �gul�=rose, +�ab�=water, or a sweet drink, and entering into European use by the year 1400 with Lanfranc�s Chirurgie. Chapter 2 discusses �Apostemate� � regarding the abscess, to swell with puss. IV: of emulsions; V: milk & whey milk; VI: of barley; VIII: the ptisan, being a decoction of barley and other ingredients, or an aqueous medicine, containing little, if any, medicinal agent; a tea or tisane. Caput I: Cephalata, of mollusks; II: of ointments for the eye; III: cough medicines; IV: �De Looch� = any medicinal taken by licking with the tongue; V: medicines for the heart; VI: medicines for the stomach; VII: for the liver; VIII: for the spleen; IX: medicines for the intestines, including intestinal worms; X: Nephritis, or for the kidneys; XI: for hysteria; XII: for arthritis; XIII: of medicines to induce heavy sweating, etc. Section III opens with alternative ways to clear out or purge an illness, including opiates (p.146). �De Bolo� offers a variety of pills or an ingested variety of medicine. Powder applications follow. Perhaps of added interest: �in hysterica passione� or hysteria-passion, for which there is some recommendations (including opium). A discussion in a section on powders mentions coffee (p.164), and herbs from Japan and China (p.165). Of external applications (not ointments) (p.171), etc., etc. � Very little is known about Jerome Tenque (d.1687). It is recorded that he was a member of the faculty of medicine at the University of Montpellier in 1668. �Of special interest are the descriptions of instruments, etc., as for injections, pessars, plasters.� [source unknown]. � Hirsch V, 629; Krivatsy/NLM 11748; Osleriana 4087; Ernst Weil Cat. 22:280; Wellcome Library [Ref. 14329200].

        Delight and judgment: or, a prospect of the great day of judgment, and its power to damp, and imbitter sensual delights, sports, and recreations.

      London printed by H. Hills Jun. for Mark Pardoe 1684 - 8vo., (16) + 379 + (5)pp., including the penultimate advertisement leaf and final blank, contemporary ink annotations on endpapers and on at least two page margins, tiny hole in one text leaf affecting two or three letters on both recto and verso, contemporary blind-ruled calf. A very good crisp copy. First edition. An unusually liberal Protestant view of worldly pleasures some of which Horneck condemned only when indulged in excess. Horneck examines the menu of pleasures - particularly what he calls the 'sensual, and carnal delights of men, particularly of young men' and asks the rhetorical question: 'What is there in that future judgment, that's able to cast a damp on the mirth, and jollities of men, especially the younger sort?' And, in attempting an answer, he examines in turn the various 'delights' generally on offer: 'delight in gardens, rivers and orchards', 'delight in musick, either vocal or instrumental', 'delight in books', 'delight in drinking and tippling', 'delight in cards & dice', 'delight in feasting and going to feasts', 'delight in fashionable cloaths and habits', 'delight in painting and patching, and artificial meliorations of the face and skin', 'delight in dancing', and 'delight in seeing and going to stage-plays'. Horneck's realistic - and relatively sensible - position on make-up and cosmetic surgery (as it were) well illustrates his general position in the real world. 'Though a man who hath lately had the small pox, or hath been sun-burnt, or whose face hath been parch'd with wind, may lawfully take care by ordinary helps to reduce his face to his former, or native, colour, and complexion; and though we do not judge it against the law of God, to hide some great blemish or defect in the face whereby spectators may be offended, and particularly women that are with child, frighted; and though it is not inconsistent with the rule of the Gospel, to wash the face when dirty; yet all those paints and additional washes, and artificial black spots, whereby men and women endeavour either to set off their complexion the better, to give themselves a more pleasing colour or to mend their meen, or to make themselves look more beautiful, or to attract the eyes, and admiration, and sometimes the unlawful amours of those they converse withal, are things which a Christian must be a stranger too'. On the subject of gambling ('cards and dice') the author is also able to offer some comfort. He provides 10 'provisos', conformity with which might allow gambling to be 'lawful'. Thus proviso 3 is that winnings should be given to the poor, 'or some pious use'. And proviso 4 is that gamblers and card-players should 'spend but very little time in it, not above an hour or two'. Anthony Horneck (1641-1697), Church of England clergyman, was born in the Lower Palatinate and was educated for the Reformed ministry. Like many Lutheran and Reformed theologians at that time Horneck came to England to continue his studies in 1660. His eventual reputation in England was based partly on his expertise in oriental languages, and partly on a personal piety which he sustained lifelong. After a number of ecclesiastical preferments, in 1671 he was appointed preacher in the Savoy. He was awarded a Cambridge Doctorate in Divinity in 1681. 'Like the protestant orthodox generally, he depended excessively for his leverage upon conscience upon the assertion that the ultimate day of judgment was at hand, and like them was prepared to soften the asceticism for which he called by classifying as things indifferent a more liberal list of worldly pleasures than would have been countenanced by the pietists of the next generation'. [W.R. Ward in ODNB]. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Leevensbeschryving van den heere Baron Lodewyk Holberg.Amsterdam, Steven van Esveldt, 1765. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece portrait of Holberg. Brown calf (ca. 1900?), richly gold-tooled spine.

      Ehrencron-Müller, Bibl. Holbergs skrifter; STCN (5 copies). First Dutch edition of the autobiography of the multitalented Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754), famous in Denmark both for his fine satirical plays comparable with Moliere's and for his important contributions to legal thought. A follower of Voltaire (another satirical playwright with a good legal mind), Holberg helped bring Enlightenment ideas to Denmark. Outside Denmark he is best known for his only novel, an imaginary voyage with elements of fantasy and science fiction known in English as Niels Klim's underground travels . His present autobiography is "candid, concise, and extremely readable, mingling jest with earnest in an altogether delightful fashion" (William Morton Payne, Ludvig Holberg ). His powers of observation and analysis make his account of his travels in England, France and Italy far more than a travelogue. With a small hole in 1 leaf, occasional minor foxing or superficial stains and an occasional small marginal defect (1 tear repaired) but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is worn at the hinges but still good. The genuine voyages of the author of a famous imaginary voyage.

        Historia insectorum generalis in qua verissimae mutationum, seu lentae in membra epigeneseos rationes, duce experientia, redduntur, recepta vulgo insectorum metamorphosis solide refutatur ... adjicitur dilucidatio.Leiden, Johannes van Abkoude, 1733. 4to. With 13 engraved plates (of which 8 folding), and 1 folding table. Early 19th-century red half morocco.

      MC NH, p. 2055; Hagen II, p. 209; Horn & Schenkling 21795; Nissen, ZBI 4053; STCN (6 copies); for the author: DSB XIII, pp. 168-175. Re-issue of the rare Latin translation first published in Utrecht by Meinardus van Dreunen in 1684, of Swammerdam's famous work on the metamorphosis of insects. Since Aristotle, the theory on insects was based on three suppositions, insects lack internal anatomy, they originate by spontaneous generation and they develop by metamorphosis. The idea of metamorphosis was that a sudden and total change from one kind of creature into another, comparable to the alchemical transmutation of a base metal into gold. Swammerdam's thesis was fundamentally new and significant. He believed all three suppositions to be false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas. Plates a bit browned. Good copy.

      V. Eeghen & V.d. Kellen 396 (first work only); Klaversma & Hannema 132 & 747. First Dutch edition of all the works on Jewish history by the famous classical Jewish historian Flavius Josephus. They were translated from the latest critical French edition by Arnauld d'Andilly. Though this volume was intended to stand on its own, the French Protestant minister Jacob Basnage, who had moved to the Netherlands in 1684 in anticipation of the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, decided to publish the present continuation, carrying the history on to his own time, which grew larger. The present edition is the first complete (in fact the first extensive) Dutch edition, in folio format designed to match the 1706 Dutch edition of Flavius Josephus. The two works therefore form a coherent whole.The illustrations in the first work include 127 designed and engraved by the celebrated Dutch artist Jan Luyken, 99 specially made for the present edition and the others first used in Mortier's Bible, published a year before. Especially in the homes of the strict Calvinists, works on Jewish history were very popular and much read and studied.

        Breviarium politicorum Aristotelis. Cui accedit ejusdam consilium de studiis in philosophia practica & historia recte instituendis. Nunc primum edita sumptibus Joh. Had.

De natura & constitutione philosophiæ Italicæ seu pythagoricæ liber singularis. Uppsala, Henricus Curio, 1664. 8:o. (16),+ 180,+ (12) s. Sista preliminärbladet lagat i yttermarginal. Lagerfläckar.

Litet hål nederst i bakre fals. Ur L. F. Rääfs bibliotek på Forsnäs, med dess exlibris. Försättsbladet med innehållsförteckning i bläck. Collijn sp. 825 resp. 826. Fant 49 resp. 15. Cicognara 1793 för ?De antiquorum? Hammarsköld Schole- och undervisningsböcker, s. 160 för ?Breviarum?.?Breviarium politicorum? är i den något mer sällsynta varianten utan dedikation på sidan två (Collijn 4 ex.). Trevligt samlingsband med Schefferus två verk om den antika filosofin. Kompendiet om Aristoteles Politik, postumt utgivet av Johan Hadorph, är en lärobok sammanställd av Schefferus och bygger enligt Fant på hans föreläsningar som skytteansk professor. Den gav, enligt Bo Lindberg, den elementära socialfilosofiska allmänbildningen, och förklarade de termer och begrepp som användes i den samtida politiska litteraturen. På slutet ges även en förteckning på lämpliga böcker att studera. Uppslaget till ?De natura? lär han ha fått av drottning Kristina, som en gång diskuterade den pytagoreiska filosofin med honom och då bad honom att sammanställa alla antika vittnesbörder om densamma, vilket han gjorde med sedvanlig noggrannhet. Huvudkällan är nyplatonikern Iamblichos men även Porphyrios och Plutarkos citeras. En ny upplaga trycktes i Wittemberg 1701. Bandet innehåller dessutom den rätt sällsynta andra upplagan av Schefferus lilla skrift ?De antiquorum torquibus?, utgiven av Johannes Nicolai. Den första utgavs 1656, denna andra är ej omnämnd av Fant.

        BUCANIERS OF AMERICA: Or, a true Account of the Most remarkable Assaults Committed of late years upon the Coasts of The West-Indies, By the Bucaniers of Jamaica and Tortuga, Both English and French. Wherein are contained more especially, The unparallel'd Exploits of Sir Henry Morgan, our English Jamaican Hero, who sack'd Puerto Velo, burnt Panama, &c. Written originally in Dutch, by John Esquemeling, one of the Bucaniers, who was present at those Tragedies, and thence translated into Spanish, by Alonso de Bonne-maison, Doctor of Physick, and Practitioner at Amsterdam. Now faithfully rendered into English [with] BUCANIERS OF AMERICA. The Second Volume. Containing the Dangerous Voyage and Bold Attempts of Captain Bartholomew Sharp, and others; perfomred upon the Coasts of the South Sea, for the space of two years, &c. From the Original Journal of the said Voyage. Written by Mr. Basil Ringrose, Gent. Who was all along present at those transactions

      London: Printed for William Crooke, at the Green Dragon with-out Temple-bar, 1684, 1685. Two volumes in one. The first edition in English of each volume, with Volume II being the first appearance in any language. With 25 engraved portraits, views, and maps, four of them folding, as well as maps and coastal profiles in the text of volume two. 4to, full crimson crushed morocco, very handsomely designed with elaborate gilt panel designs and central gilt devices in the compartments of the spine, lettered in gilt in two compartments, the covers with a triple filet borders enclosing a triple gilt fillet frame with floral tools at the corners, elaborate gilt dentelle turn-ins, all edges gilt, by Lloyd. [12] Title and To the reader, 115, 151, 124, [11] Table, [13] To the reader, 212, [17] Table, [7] ads. A very fine, very pleasing and especially well preserved copy. RARE FIRST EDITION OF BOTH VOLUMES AND THE CLASSIC ACCOUNT OF THE BUCCANEERS. A COPY IN UNUSUALLY FINE CONDITION. "Perhaps no book in any language was ever the parent of so many imitations, and the source of so many fictions as this" (Sabin). Here are the exploits of Henry Morgan, who sacked Panama and absconded without dividing the booty--a transgression of the pirate's honor that Esquemeling could not applaud; here also the vicious Francis L'Ollonois, who tore out the hearts from his still-living victims and ate them; here are countless tortures and robberies, raids and rampages, as related by a reliable witness. For Esquemeling was himself a pirate: he had been sold into slavery in the West Indian plantations, beaten, tortured, and nearly starved to death, and "so I determined, not knowing how to get any living, to enter into the order of the pirates or robbers of the sea." His career lasted from 1666 until he saw the error of his ways and withdrew from the profession in 1672. "Esquemeling's book gives a very reliable account of the principal exploits of the buccaneers down to their final disappearance, with the notable exception of their adventures in the South Sea, of which he makes no mention. This defect is, however, amply supplied by the journal of Mr. Basil Ringrose [which comprises the second volume here]. Ringrose in the capacity of pilot personally took part in Sharp's voyage and was killed in a plundering raid; his account is extremely curious and accurate" (from the Introduction to the 1898 reprint). The BUCANIERS OF AMERICA is the foundation of any pirate collection, an important part of any collection of voyages, and a seminal piece of Americana.

        Utopia, Written in Latin by Sir Thomas More, Chancellor of England; Translated into English

      London: Richard Chiswell, 1684. Hardcover. Very good. First edition of this translation, by Gilbert Burnet (1643-1714; Scottish philosopher, historian, and Bishop of Salisbury). 8vo, [22], 206, with original rear blank (P4); front blank (A1) appears to have been replaced. Early, possibly original, boards, rebacked with recent new leather spine and not very sympathetic (bright white) new endpapers. Mild browning to edges of title page, which bears and early ownership signature (Henry Thomson), else very clean. Armorial bookplate of Sir Robert Hilyard, Baronet, on front pastedown. Brunet's translation is generally regarded as preferable to the first English translation, done by Ralph Robinson in 1551. Pforzheimer (742) notes that this translation "is in some respects much superior and certainly represents a more readable text except to those who enjoy the Tudor vigor of Robinson's version." ESTC R7176; Wing M2961; Sabin 50546. As explained in Printing and the Mind of Man (47) "Utopia is not, as often imagined, More's ideal state; it exemplifies only the virtues of wisdom, fortitude, temperance, and justice. It reflects the moral poverty of the states which More knew, whose Christian rulers should possess also the Christian virtues of Faith, Hope, and Charity."

        Emblemes

      London - J. Williams, 1684 Book. GOOD ONLY. Hardcover. A wonderfully illustrated example of this book of emblems by Francis Quarles. Francis Quarles (8 May 1592 8 September 1644) was an English poet most famous for this work. He was entered at Christ's College, Cambridge, in 1608, and subsequently at Lincoln's Inn. Quarles was made cupbearer to the Princess Elizabeth, in 1613, remaining abroad for some years; and before 1629 he was appointed secretary to Ussher, the primate of Ireland. About 1633 he returned to England, and spent the next two years in the preparation of his Emblems, which was originally published in 1635. With an engraved title page and copious amusing, puzzling and beautifulillustrations throughout. Emblem books are a category of mainly didactic illustrated book printed in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries, typically containing a number of emblematic images with explanatory text. Scholars differ on the key question of whether the actual emblems in question are the visual images, the accompanying texts, or the combination of the two. With previous owner's copperplate inscriptions to front pastedown and rear free endpaper. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally, rather worn and rubbed with front board tender and rear board starting. Internally, first few pages tender but otherwise generally firmly bound. Page 5-6 missing and one prelim missing. A large closed tear to title page has beensewn in the past. Occasionalink and pencil marks, though otherwise generally bright and clean. Overall: GOOD ONLY.

Folio. Uniform contemporary blind-tooled vellum, each board with a large scrollwork centrepiece and 4 cornerpieces in a double frame of fillets.

      V. Eeghen & V.d. Kellen 396 (first work only); Klaversma & Hannema 132 & 747. First Dutch edition of all the works on Jewish history by the famous classical Jewish historian Flavius Josephus. They were translated from the latest critical French edition by Arnauld d'Andilly. Though this volume was intended to stand on its own, the French Protestant minister Jacob Basnage, who had moved to the Netherlands in 1684 in anticipation of the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, decided to publish the present continuation, carrying the history on to his own time, which grew larger. The present edition is the first complete (in fact the first extensive) Dutch edition, in folio format designed to match the 1706 Dutch edition of Flavius Josephus. The two works therefore form a coherent whole.The illustrations in the first work include 127 designed and engraved by the celebrated Dutch artist Jan Luyken, 99 specially made for the present edition and the others first used in Mortier's Bible, published a year before. Especially in the homes of the strict Calvinists, works on Jewish history were very popular and much read and studied. With occasional leaves in the second work foxed or browned, but otherwise in very good condition.

        Utopia, Written in Latin by Sir Thomas More, Chancellor of England; Translated into English

      London: Richard Chiswell, 1684. Hardcover. Very good. First edition of this translation, by Gilbert Burnet (1643-1714; Scottish philosopher, historian, and Bishop of Salisbury). 8vo, [22], 206, with original rear blank (P4); front blank (A1) appears to have been replaced. Early, possibly original, boards, rebacked with recent new leather spine and not very sympathetic (bright white) new endpapers. Mild browning to edges of title page, which bears and early ownership signature (Henry Thomson), else very clean. Armorial bookplate of Sir Robert Hilyard, Baronet, on front pastedown. Brunet's translation is generally regarded as preferable to the first English translation, done by Ralph Robinson in 1551.

        The Theory of the Earth: Containing an Account of the Original of the Earth, and of All the General Changes which it hath already undergone, or is to undergo, Till the Consummation of all Things. The Two First Books Concerning The Deluge, and Concerning Paradise

      Printed by R. Norton for Walter Kettilby, London 1684 - Folio (12 3/4 x 8"). [20], 327, [1]pp. Contemporary full spotted calf with gold lettering and ruling to spine. Raised bands. Additional engraved title. Decorative initials."The Theory of the Earth" is Thomas Burnet's best known work. The first part was published in 1681 in Latin under the title "Telluris Theoria Sacra," and three years later in its English translation; the second part* appeared in 1689 (1690 in English). The book is a speculative cosmogony, in which Burnet suggested a hollow earth with most of the water inside until Noah's Flood, at which time mountains and oceans appeared. He calculated the amount of water on Earth's surface, stating there was not enough to account for the Flood. Thomas Burnet was to some extent influenced by Descartes who had written on the creation of the earth in "Principia philosophiae" (1644), and was criticized on those grounds by Roger North. The heterodox views of Isaac La Peyrère included the idea that the Flood was not universal; Burnet's theory was at least in part intended to answer him on that point.This work is illustrated with numerous in-text figs, and is complete with its two large folded engravings (Western and Eastern Hemispheres) depicting the world as it was known then.Binding rubbed along edges, with sporadic abrasion to leather. Closed tear along front joint. Ex-Library copy with bookplates on inside of front cover (University of Southern California) and stamp at lower margin of the first printed leaf. Previous owner's name in ink dated 1750 on front free endpaper. Small inscription in purple ink on title page (not affecting lettering). Binding in overall fair, interior in very good condition. * The two last books containing the burning of the world, and concerning the new heavens and new earth.

        Cours élémentaire de paléontologie et de géologie stratigraphiques.Paris, Victor Masson, 1849-1852. 2 text volumes (8vo) and 1 table volume (4to). With 628 mostly woodengraved figures in text (except for 1 folding cross-section) and 17 numbered tables (16 folding). Volumes 1 and 2 in contemporary half morocco. Volume 3 (tables) in original printed paper wrappers with green cloth spine.

      DSB X, pp. 221-222; Ward 1684; D.A. Young, Geological evidence for the age of the earth, p. 109. Complete first edition, including the often lacking tables, of a standard work on stratigraphy and paleontology by the famous Alcide d'Orbigny (1801-1857), "perhaps the most accomplished French paleontologist of the generation following Cuvier" (Young). In this work "he subdivided the Cretaceous System into 'stages', based on the notion that a typical fauna would be annihilated and replaced by a new fauna" (Young). He based his new classification of fossils on his research on geological strata, establishing the vital link between paleontology and stratigraphic geology that has proved so fruitful for both disciplines. Many contemporary geologists opposed his stratigraphic ideas, but despite this controversy he was appointed professor of paleontology at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris in 1853. The work contains numerous woodengraved illustrations by E. Salle, which show an enormous variety of plant and animal fossils, from tiny invertebrates to gigantic dinosaurs.In very good condition, with only some faint foxing on the first and last few pages. Bindings of the text volumes slightly rubbed along the extremities and worn along the corners; paper wrappers of the tables slightly soiled, but still in good condition.

        Asia map - Homann.

      Asia AsiaA decorative map prepared by Prof. Johann Matthias Haas (1684-1742), who produced a number of continental and regional maps for the atlases issued by the firm of Homann Heirs in 1744. Kamchatka has been reduced to its proper size vis ? vis Johann Christoph's version, while Siberia is drawn with an outline familiar to us today.The coastal waters of Japan remain a little haphazard with Hokkaido -Terra Efo, Yedso ou Yesfo- still attached to the mainland, but Sakhalin Island (Sagalien) is clearly marked. The Malay Peninsula has a very poor outline compared to earlier maps by Homann. Johor (Iohor) is located on the north-east coastline (somewhere in the vicinity of present day Kota Bahru). Tibet, which is named, bears the alternative title of "Dalai Lammae". Original handcolouring. Size: 47,6 x 55,3 cm. Price: ?625,- (excl. VAT/BTW).
