Op BATAVIA in OOST-INDIEN.'One of the first works dealing exclusively with gout, with appended the rare treatise of Wilem Ten Rhyne (1649-1700) on acupuncture taken from Japanese and Chines sources.Also one of the earliest descriptions of Japanese acupunture in the West and the first one in Dutch. Published only a year later as the Description by ten Rhyne in Latin. Ten Rhyne was resident physician at Deshima." Als Anhang des Buches v. Stephen Blankaart ' Verhandeling . Podagra, 1684 ' teilt der holländische Arzt Wilhelm ten Rhyne, der im Jahre 1673 nach Nagasaki kam auf Verlangen des Kaisers, der ihn über seine Gesundheit consultieren wollte folgende Selbstbeobachtung über Moxa mit : Liese ich mich auff die Japanische Manier , mit dem Moxa brennen und also auff beyden Seiten des Nabels. 3 grosse Brandstichen setzen." Esso. (Janus, 1941/45. p. 127. nr. 45. 1941 in Janus)."For many decades the Jesuit translations mentioned above were the only information coming directly from the motherland of Chinese medicine. Once again we have to turn to Japan as an important stage of East-West interaction.Under the (probably false) impression that the shogun (emperor) had requested a highly qualified European physician, the Dutch East India Company decided to dispatch Dr Willem Ten Rhijne to Japan. Ten Rhijne was especially chosen for this task, and he engaged in a great deal of preparation. Before leaving Batavia in 1674 he met Buschof, who asked for more information about moxa. He also talked to Cleyer, who during these years was involved in the shipments of herbs and medical instruments to Nagasaki.In Japan, Ten Rhijne managed to acquire a copy of the "Illustrated manual explaining acupuncture and moxibustion with the aid of the bronze figure and its acu-points" (Tongren shuxue zhenjiu jing). This was one of the most influential Chinese classics on acupuncture, and had been written by Wang Weiyi in the eleventh century. Ten Rhijne also studied moxa and collected samples of Japanese medicaments and acupuncture needles. As he had friends in England, his Latin manuscripts about the treatment of gout with moxa, the cure of diseases with needles, and the system of acutracts and channels were printed in London in 1683.Obviously, Ten Rhijne wrote his manuscript solely based on the explanations given to him by Motoki Shôdayu and Iwanaga Sôko, two interpreters at the Dutch trading post in Nagasaki. They could read his Chinese book, but only by use of a complex technique of transposing the Chinese text into a Sino-Japanese version. The latter was then rendered into Dutch. According to Ten Rhijne, Motoki was versed in Chinese medicine, but he did not speak much Dutch. On the other hand, Iwanaga enjoyed a slightly better command of the Dutch language but he had no medical knowledge. The process of translation must have been haunting and the results turned out to be very confusing. Numerous footnotes did not do much to elucidate the meaning. Understandably, Ten Rhijne, too, had difficulties with the nature of qi. In his view the Chinese and Japanese used acupuncture to release spirits, winds or bad air that had accumulated at certain locations in the body, causing pain and disease. While the Jesuits prudently wrote of "ways", Ten Rhijne explicitly states that the acutracts and -channels in his copperplates were bad representations of arteries and veins (arteriae et venae).Nowadays, Ten Rhijne's book is famous because it introduced the term acupunctura in Europe. However, for contemporary readers it must have been very bewildering. Moreover, Ten Rhijne mixes up Chinese and Japanese medicine. While using the Chinese "Illustrated manual explaining acupuncture and moxibustion with the aid of the bronze figure and its acu-points" to describe some principles and aims of treatment, two of his four copperplates depicting the "arteries and veins" came from Japanese sources and had a different pattern of lines. Furthermore, his illustration of the needles shows a Japanese type unknown in China. These so-called hammer needles (uchibari)[33] were invented by one Munch Mubun and propagated by Misono Isai (1557-1616). Mubun ignored the traditional teachings of acu-tracts and -channels and took the abdomen as a map of the whole body. Only there did diagnosis and treatment take place. With a tiny hammer a golden needle was pushed into the tissue using a variety of techniques. This has nothing in common with Chinese acupuncture but much to do with old Japanese concepts of the abdomen (hara) as the centre of human emotions and feelings.Ten Rhijne also discusses Buschof's book. Although he stayed in Japan for two years and should have been aware of its wide spectrum of application, he too writes almost entirely about moxa as a remedy for gout.Ten Rhijne's book was reviewed in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Natural Knowledge. German physicians kept quiet, perhaps under the impression that they had published something better, and it is also possible that some critical hints Cleyer dropped in his letters influenced his colleagues in Germany. It was left to the Dutch Steven Blankaart to translate excerpts and summaries of Ten Rhine's treatises for those who could not read Latin. This Verhandeling van het Podagra en Vliegende Jicht (Amsterdam 1684) was reprinted several times and in 1692 translated into German (Der Chinesen und Japaner Manier, wie selbige alle Kranckheiten durch das Moxa-Brennen und Guldene Nadel=Stechen vollkommen curiren)."

        Een Christins reyse na de eeuwigheyt. (...). Vertaald uit het Engels. Amsterdam, Gijsbert de Groot Keur, 1754.

      12°: A-L 12 M 6, gepag.: 269 [3] pp. Titelpagina in houtsnede. Ooorspr. karton. Lit.: Witsen Geysbeek II p.105."Vervolg op 'De Christenreis'. In dit tweede deel beschrijft Bunyan de zinnebeeldige tocht van Christiana en haar kinderen naar de hemelse zaligheid. Zij hebben het een stuk gemakkelijker dan Christen, omdat die op zijn reis te gelijk de bane eerst moest breken en daarom de allerhardste strijd uytstaan. 'Een Christins reyse' (eerste Engelse druk 1684) heeft bij lange na niet de bekendheid gekregen van de zes jaar eerder verschenen 'Pilgrim's progress'. De op de titelpagina met A.E.C. aangeduide vertaler is Albert Ebbo Crous, die door Witsen Geysbeek wordt weggezet als een Groninger rijmer die in 1721 een allerellendigst prulwerk, genaamd Josephs droev' en bly-einde4, 398, in het allerplatste Groninger dialect [heeft] geschreven; plomper taal is misschien nimmer in eenig tooneelstuk gevoerd. De eerste druk van Crous' vertaling was in 1723 in Groningen verschenen bij Seerp Bandsma. Deze uitgave is zoals veel volksboekjes gedrukt in gotische letter; vooraf gaat een drempelvers van R.A.Cr. van Stalberg. De titelplaat, die de berg toont die moet worden beklommen om de Hemelse Stad te bereiken, is midden in het boekje nogmaals afgedrukt. L1839"

        Dissertatio lithologica variis observationibus et figuris illustrata.

      Londoni, Typis Joannis Bringhurst, 1684, 12, (16), 137 pp., 1 p. Errata, 1 p., 6 gfefalt. Kupfertaf., Ledereinband d.Zt. trotz des erneuerten Rücken ein feines und frisches Exemplar. Rare first Edition of this important book on lithotomy! Groenvelt, Joannes (bap. 1648, d. 1715/16), physician and surgeon, was baptized on 14 May 1648 in the Reformed church of Deventer in the Dutch province of Overijssel he was the only surviving son of Frans Groenevelt and Goedekin ter Klocken. In mid-January 1666 he matriculated into the well-regarded local 'Illustre School' in September 1667 he matriculated in medicine at the University of Leiden. Apparently because of the epidemic that occurred in Leiden at the end of the summer of 1669, which forced the university to close for a time, Groenevelt migrated to Utrecht to complete his medical studies, defending his thesis, 'De calculo vesicae', and taking his degree, on 18 March 1670. Perhaps after a visit to France, Groenevelt moved to Amsterdam, where he joined the Collegium Medicum and married Cristina de Ruijter (c.1650-1713) on 4 March 1672. He also entered into a joint practice with the Amsterdam city surgeon Henricus Velthuys, who had an especially good reputation for surgically removing bladder stones. When Velthuys died in May 1674 he left his instruments to Groenevelt, and urged him to take up surgical practice himself. Groenevelt may have served as physician to the newly liberated Dutch garrison at Grave in October 1674. Then, late in the year, or early in 1675, he and his wife arrived in London. On 5 May 1675 their first child, Franciscus, was baptized at the Dutch church at Austin Friars, and on 24 June Groenevelt obtained his papers of denization from the English crown. Another son, Elias, was baptized at Austin Friars on 4 November 1677, and a daughter,Christina, on 2 April 1679. The family resided in Throgmorton Street, just around the corner from the church. Groenevelt published a version of his medical thesis as Lithologia: a Treatise of the Stone and Gravel (1677). In the spring of 1682 he helped the Royal Society to publish an important work by one of his old friends from Deventer, Willem ten Rhijne. He joined the Royal College of Physicians, London, on 2 April 1683 as a licentiate, and in 1684 published his Dissertatio lithologica, which became well regarded in England and on the continent, with a second edition in 1687. In 1686 he signed a contract with John Browne, surgeon to St Thomas's Hospital, London, to train him in removing bladder stones using his methods (although Browne brought suit in 1687 for breach of contract, with Groenevelt counter-suing). On 12 August 1687 Groenevelt joined with four other licentiates of the college in the 'repository', a group practice in King's Street, where they took turns seeing patients and selling medications from a large stock they collected and compounded on site each also took it in turn to visit the sick in their homes for one week. To bring in custom, the group published The Oracle for the Sick (1687), which contained a series of medical questions mimicking the questions that a doctor would ask on seeing a patient, which could be filled out and sent to the repository through the penny post system remedies and instructions on use would be sent in return. The members of the Repository practice drew censures from the Royal College of Physicians, but they seem to have prospered. Groenevelt also published Arthritology, or, A Discourse of the Gout (1691), in which he claimed to have found a new and better way of treating gout and the many other diseases caused by faults in the juices of the blood. It may have been hearing of Groenevelt's new remedy that caused Suzanna Withall to seek his assistance in the summer of 1693 but on 27 July 1694 she and supporting witnesses complained to the censors of the Royal College of Physicians that his pills had left her an invalid. The censors found him guilty of malpractice for giving cantharides internally, but one of the censors, Edward Tyson, prevented them from exacting a penalty. Further internal troubles in the college caused delays, but in April 1697 the censors fined Groenevelt 20 and sent him to Newgate prison. Groenevelt obtained release on habeas corpus, and permanent freedom because of the general pardon of William III after the death of Queen Mary. Supported by the London apothecaries and surgeons, he fought the censors by charging them in court with not having taken the necessary oaths, sued them for false imprisonment, and engaged in a publicity battle with them via pamphlets and the newspapers. The censors in turn helped Mrs Withall bring a civil suit against Groenevelt for 2000, although the jury found him not guilty at the conclusion of a six-hour trial on 7 December 1697. Groenevelt then sought further vindication by publishing De tuto cantharidum in medicina usu interno (1698). The case he had lodged against the censors became an issue in the House of Lords in the spring of 1698 his suit for false imprisonment failed in king's bench in June 1700, but created important precedent by placing courts such as the college's under the supervision of the courts of common law. Even though he was found not guilty, Groenevelt's practice declined, and in 1703 he also became deeply embroiled on the losing side of a bitter dispute within the church of Austin Friars. By 1710 he was rumoured to be going blind and to have shaking hands he could no longer pay his dues to the college, and in December he became an object of its charity. His children had all died, and his wife apparently returned to Amsterdam, where she was buried in December 1713. Groenevelt tried to restore his reputation with A Compleat Treatise of the Stone and Gravel (1710), and wrote a medical textbook, Fundamenta medicinae scriptoribus in 1714, apparently for money. In 1714 he moved to St John's Priory, where he died, being buried outside the church of St James's, Clerkenwell on 15 January 1716.

Het blad was echter geen lang leven beschoren: in april 1719, na 98 nummers, moest de verschijning wegens gebrek aan succes worden gestaakt. De oorzaak is niet duidelijk. Buijnsters noemt de luchtig-ironische toon van La Bagatelle, die duidelijk verschilde van die van Le Misantrope, een verademing, vergeleken met andere spectatoriale geschriften, maar wellicht bracht die ironie de Nederlandse lezer die daar niet aan gewend was in verwarring. Deze uitgave is volgens de 'Check-list 18-eeuwse spectatoriale tijdschriften in Nederland' een piraatdruk van de uitgave in de 'Oeuvres diverses' (Amsterdam 1742)."

        Homo et eius partes figuratus & symbolicus, anatomicus, rationalis, moralis, mysticus, politicus, & legalis, collectus et explicatus cum figuris.Augsburg & Dillingen, Johann Caspar Bencard, 1695. 2 volumes bound as 1. Large folio (37 x 23 cm). With a finely engraved emblematic frontispiece by the Augsburg engraver Leonhard Heckenauer (1655-1704), 2 title-pages with the same large engraved brooding chicken emblem and 42 engraved emblems in decorative cartouches in the text (plate size mostly 14 x 13 cm, but that on p. 232 of vol. 1 3.5 x 8.5 cm) perhaps also by Heckenauer. Contemporary vellum.

      Caillet 9948 ("unique in its genre"); Landwehr, German emblem books 530; Praz 490 note; R. Raybould, Emblemata 29. First and only Latin edition (translated by Matthias Honcamp) of a truly unique emblematic and philosophical work, originally published in Italian in 1684 as L'uomo e sue parti, figurato e simbolico, with 42 engraved emblems revolving around the human body and body parts. It describes and depicts the human body in its details and in its entirety in every aspect conceivable. The book also discusses magic, in the strict sense of the word, revealing many marvellous secrets, such as the occult properties of saliva, urine, sperm, etc."The erudition demonstrated by the author is really quite extraordinary" (Raybould) including metoposcopy (the interpretation of facial wrinkles for divination!). An appendix adds short accounts of several subjects, including "hieroglyphia" and "androgyni", along with short works by other authors: Lactantius Firmianus's "De opificio Dei", Coelius Rhodiginus on humanity, and a long "Ode" to humanity: "Considerationes patheticae de creatione, & dignitate hominis" based on Trismegistus, Plato, Coelius and other ancient sources.With a faint marginal water stain and a couple small rust spots in the paper, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding shows a few scratches, cuts and stains, small cracks at the head and foot of the hinges and 1 sewing support broken at the hinge, but is still in good condition. A fascinating emblem book for both text and imagery (some of it now also humorous), and an impressive piece of book production.

Het verscheen in 85 wekelijkse afleveringen van elk 8 bladzijden octavo van 1711 tot 1712 in Den Haag bij de Schot Thomas Johnson, en kwam daarmee net iets later dan de 'Tatler' (1709-1711) en de 'Spectator' (1711-1712) van de Engelsen Steele en Addison. Buynsters noemt 'Le Misantrope' het hoogtepunt van Van Effens schrijverscarrière en zegt verder: Moderne onderzoekers als Krauss, Schorr, Steland en Moureau rekenen Le Misantrope unaniem tot het beste wat de vroege Verlichting op essayistisch gebied heeft voortgebracht. In zijn blad legt Van Effen de drijfveren van het menselijk gedrag bloot, maar hij doet dat zonder een preektoon aan te slaan. Bij het beëindigen van 'Le Misantrope' in 1712 kondigde Van Effen al meteen als diens opvolger 'La Bagatelle' aan, maar het zou nog 6 jaar duren voor dat blad (eveneens in het , 523, ) verscheen. Deze tweede druk is uitgebreid met een vertoog over de liefdadigheid, een verslag van een reis naar Zweden in 1719 en een liefst 140 pagina's tellende beschouwing over de esprits-forts (vrijdenkers, atheïsten)."

      Amsterdam, Janssonio Waesbergios 1684. - BLC 6,157. Hirsch 1,110. Ferguson: Bibliographical notes on histories of invention and books of secrets 5,6ff. - A (1657-1712), niederländischer Gelehrter, Professor für Medizin, Geschichte u. Griechischen Sprache, erklärt in vorliegendem Werk, dass die meisten zeitgenössischen medizinischen Entdeckungen bereits in der Antike bekannt waren und erstellt im zweiten Teil des Werkes mit eigenem Titelblatt u. eigener Zählung "Rerum Inventarum Onomasticon" eine alphabetische Aufstellung jener Entdeckungen u. der dazugehörigen Zitate. A., der mütterlicherseits aus der Familie der bedeutenden Amsterdamer Druckerfamilie Janssonius stammte, verfügte sichtlich auch über ausgedehnte bibliographische Kenntnisse. Die "Inventa nov-antiqua" von Ferguson als "remarkable contribution to the history of discovery" bezeichnet, spielten zweifellos ihre Rolle in der zeitgenössischen Kontroverse ("Battle of Books") um wissenschaftliche Entdeckungen bzw. die wissenschaftliche Revolution als solche. 8°.

        Druckgraphiken \"Le Printemps\" und \"L`Été\" nach François Boucher (1703 - 1770) und Antoine Watteau (1684 - 1721).

      Vermutlich frühes 20. Jahrhundert. Druckgraphiken im Format von 50 x 23 cm unter Passepartouts (Rahmenformat: 68 x 38 cm); jeweils unterzeichnet mit A. Watteau und F. Boucher. Stilistisch passende Rahmungen mit innenliegender Goldleiste und Verglasung. Mit enthalten sind zwei Seitenkopien eines Auktionskataloges, in dem die vier Werke beschrieben werden. Zum Frühlingsmotiv heißt es dort: \"A Composition with two young Lovers (Le Printemps): The central group affords the usual connection between love and spring. The medallion contains an young girl`s head. The trophy consists of an agricultural fork and a long spindle.\" Und zum Sommermotiv: \"Composition with Young Country Couple (L`Été): In the medallion a girl`s head. A rake and hoe make up the trophy.\" Rückwände jeweils mit Aufkleber der Kölner Kunsthandlung Goyert; eine Rückwand außerdem mit handschriftlicher Ankaufsnotiz. Druckgraphiken nach Wandpanelen oder Paravents von Antoine Watteau, gestochen von François Boucher. Es handelt sich um zwei Teile einer ehemals vierteiligen Jahreszeitenserie. Antoine Watteau (1684 - 1721) zählt zu den bedeutendsten Malern des französischen Rokoko. Mit seinen \"Fêtes galantes\", in denen in üppiger landschaftlicher Umgebung Liebespaare, schöne Frauen, Tänzer oder auch Hirten dargestellt werden, schuf er eine eigene Bildgattung. Die größte Anzahl von Watteau-Gemälden befindet sich heute, ehemals von Friedrich dem Großen erworben, im Besitz der Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg. François Boucher (1703 - 1770), Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher, widmete sich in der Tradition Watteaus, den er bewunderte, künstlerisch ebenfalls der galanten Welt des Rokoko, die er in mythologischen, teilweise erotischen Motiven darstellte. Boucher hatte von 1742 an den Rang eines Hofmalers des französischen Königs inne, außerdem avancierte er zum Günstling der Maitresse des Königs, der einflussreichen Marquise de Pompadour. Es handelt sich bei den beiden angebotenen Darstellungen vermutlich nicht um Original-Kupferstiche der Zeit (18. Jahrhundert), sondern um Reproduktionen aus dem früheren 20. Jahrhundert. Die Druckgraphiken in tadellosem Zustand; Rahmen mit einigen Bereibungsspuren. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

Titolo inciso al taglio di piede.

L'opera, pubblicata per la prima volta a Napoli due anni prima, costituisce un commento e un'aggiunta al Tractatus de cessione iurium & actionum di Alfonso de Olea. Il De Luca (Molfetta, 1613-Napoli, 1700) fu giureconsulto ed ecclesiastico, canonico di San Nicola a Bari. Avviato al sacerdozio, solo dopo aver ricevuto gli ordini sacri intraprese gli studi giuridici, senza tuttavia conseguire il dottorato. Probabilmente era uno di quegli ecclesiastici che, per un abuso inveterato, svolgevano attività forense. Fece le sue prime esperienze di giureconsulto nella terra natia; dedicò le sue opere maggiori a san Corrado, protettore di Molfetta, oppure a Veronica Spinola, signora della cittadina pugliese, per la quale scrisse anche una storia apologetica della famiglia (Tractatus de linea legali, Neapoli 1674). Schivo e modesto di carattere, pare che rifiutasse un vescovato offertogli da Innocenzo XI. Accettò invece un canonicato di collazione regia nella basilica di S. Nicola a Bari. Una scelta, questa, del tutto coerente all'indirizzo regalistico della sua riflessione giuridica, per la quale una sua Praxis civilis et criminalis, pubblicata forse a Napoli nel 1685, fu messa all'Indice il 2 luglio 1686 con decreto dell'omonima congregazione romana. Sotto questo profilo può ben dirsi che lo status ecclesiastico non condizionò la sostanziale làicità del suo orientamento giurisdizionalistico. Lo dimostra il De apostolico regiove assensu, etiam generali (ibid. 1698), dove affermava la necessità dell'assenso sugli atti promananti dall'autorità ecclesiastica. Seppure da una posizione appartata, il D. contribuì non poco a secondare talune cattive propensioni dei forensi, quali la cavillosità e la vuota erudizione, sempre sulla scia dei modelli più consolidati. Non a caso le sue opere più gradite ai contemporanei furono quelle relative all'aggiornamento di vecchi e prestigiosi testi. Un settore, questo, nel quale il De Luca non fu secondo a nessuno. Ad orientare questo tipo di produzione erano soprattutto interessi editoriali: la ristampa di una vecchia opera era proponibile soltanto se aggiornata da una firma di prestigio. Ma, a dire del De Luca, nel suo caso agivano motivazioni più profonde: l'opera di un giurista era simile a un campo che, se coltivato assiduamente, rischiava d'isterilirsi. Privo di una solida identità culturale e di una precisa collocazione politica, era in grado d'esprimersi al meglio soltanto se scriveva per o contro qualcuno. E così sul tema della cessione dei diritti e delle azioni, la polemica contro Alphonsus de Olea, che accusava di addurre più vocabula quani negotia, lo indusse a cimentarsi più volte e in maniera perentoria.

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

      Caesarem Chappuis, 1684., Lyon: - 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'.

        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.

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

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.
