        Zuidelijke Nederlanden - Nicolaes Visscher, 1684.

      ?Belgii Regii Tabula?, kopegravure uitgegeven door Nicolaes Visscher II te Amsterdam in 1684. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en prachtig met goud gehoogd. Afm. 53,3 x 63,5 cm.Deze gedetailleerde kaart van de Zuidelijke Nederlanden toont de gebieden die in 1684 in Spaans bezit waren. De kaart maakte deel uit van Visscher's atlas Germania Inferior.In de randversiering zien we hoe goed het gaat in de lage landen: een allegorisch vrouwenfiguur houdt het wapen van koning Philip II van Spanje en Oostenrijk vast. Een putto aan haar voeten draagt de hoorn des overvloeds, de akkers zijn rijk gevuld met graan, de koeien die worden gemolken zijn goed doorvoed en gelukkig.De uitgeverij van Visscher begon rond 1608 met Claes Jansz. Visscher die kaarten graveerde voor Willem Blaeu en Jododus Hondius. Onder zijn zoon Nicolaes Visscher I, die in 1652 het roer had overgenomen, groeide het bedrijf uit tot een gerespecteerd uitgevershuis en verkreeg deze een octrooi van de staten van Holland en West-Friesland voor het drukken en uitgeven van kaarten.Nicolaes I werd opgevolgd door zijn zoon Nicolaes II (1649-1702). Hij verkreeg in 1682-1683 eenzelfde soort octrooi als zijn vader. Er is een catalogus bekend uit die jaren (27 bladzijden!) met werken die de uitgeverij aanbood. Slechts tien procent bestond uit kaarten, de rest had betrekking op prentwerk. De Visschers zagen hun winkel in de eerste plaats als een kunsthandel, maar er was ook een grote keus aan kaarten voorhanden.Prijs: ?650,-.

        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).

        Tractatus de organo auditus, continens structuram, usum et morbos omni

      1684 - (MEDICINE). Du Verney, Joseph Guichard. Tractatus de organo auditus, continens structuram, usum et morbos omnium auris partium. Nuremberg: Johann Zieger, 1684. 4to. [12], 48 p. 16 engraved folding plates. Nineteenth century paper wrappers. Plate 16 neatly backed, title very lightly soiled, else a very good copy. Joseph Friedrich Blumenbach's copy, with his signature on the verso of the title page. In a fine morocco- backed clamshell box. First edition in Latin, following the original edition (in French) published the previous year in Paris. Garrison-Morton calls Du Verney's work the "first scientific account of the structure, function and diseases of the ear." Du Verney showed the true function of the Eustachian tube, and correctly explained the mechanism of bone conduction, giving an accurate account of the bony labyrinth. Joseph Friedrich Blumenbach (1752-1840) was an influential zoologist and anthropologist. Wellcome II p. 506; Krivatsy/NLM 3591. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Relatione e lettere scritte da Isach Soleman Re di Persia alla Maest

      Venice & Naples, Francesco Benzi, 1684. - 4to. (4) pp. With a woodcut title vignette. Disbound. Extremely rare early newspaper, reporting on the communication between Shah Suleiman of Persia and Jan III Sobieski, King of Poland, shortly after the latter had liberated the besieged city of Vienna from the rival Ottoman forces. The remainder of the reports pertains to further military successes against the Turks (in the wake of which several European states were even emboldened to propose a coalition with Safavid Persia against the Ottoman Empire); there are also details about storms, earthquakes, and the sightings of comets, all of which were thought to bode ill to the Ottomans. - The Polish King's response to Suleiman's letter, though announced in the headline, is not printed here; the newspaper is complete thus with two conjoined quarto leaves, conforming with the single other known copy, kept at the Biblioteka Narodowa, Warsaw. - Slight browning; edges untrimmed. K. Zawadzki, Gazety ulotne polskie II, 1122. Cf. OCLC 82569381 (microform only).

        Nouvelles de la République des Lettres

      Desbordes - Pain - Mortier, 1684. 12mo (cm. 13,8), 66 Voll., ciascuno di circa 400 pp. con disegni n.t. e tavv. f.t. Legature coeve in piena pelle con nervi e ricchi fregi oro al ds. Carte di guardia e tagli marmorizzati in coloritura omogenea. Alcuni volumi recano al piatto anteriore la scritta in oro ‘ M. De Prangins’. Ottime condizioni generali, salvo poche cuffie danneggiate. Interni freschi (carte ingiallite in tre voll.) e ben conservati (solo il Tomo I del 1704 ha uno strappo al frontespizio). Tutto il pubblicato (per lo più in prima o seconda edizione): insieme ai volumi curati da Bayle (marzo 1684-febbraio 1687), le continuazioni - intervallate da anni in cui la pubblicazione della rivista venne sospesa - di Daniel de Larroque e Jean Le Clerc (marzo-agosto 1687), Jean Barrin (settembre 1687-aprile 1689), Jacques Bernard (gennaio 1699-dicembre 1710, gennaio 1716-aprile 1718), Jean Le Clerc (maggio-giugno 1718). Si tratta del primo periodico che si prefisse l’obiettivo di analizzare e segnalare al ‘Pubblico’ (in precedenza lo scambio di informazioni e di valutazioni si svolgeva nella stretta cerchia degli intellettuali) le edizioni contemporanee pubblicate in Europa (Francia e Olanda soprattutto, ma anche Inghilterra, Svezia, Germania, Italia, ecc.) riguardanti gli argomenti più interessanti nel mondo pre-illuministico come la filosofia cartesiana, le religioni (con molteplici note sulla religione cattolica e protestante, ma anche con segnalazioni di studi sulla chiesa anglicana, sulla storia e gli usi degli ebrei, ecc.), i viaggi, le invenzioni ed i progressi delle scienze fisiche e matematiche e della medicina, e - sia pure in minor misura - le opere storiche e letterarie. Opera completa (descrizione conforme in B.N.F.) molto rara, quasi introvabile nel mercato antiquario, di questo eccezionale periodico (pubblicato in lingua francese in Olanda per sfuggire alla censura presente in Francia) che - come testimoniano le ripetute edizioni - ebbe un grande successo in ambito europeo.

        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.

        Apollonius Cattus, oder Kern der gantzen Geometriae in drey Theil... [Bericht zu M. Jobsten Burgi seligen Geometrischen Triangular Instruments]

      Marburg, Joh. Heinrich Stock [pour Johann Ingebrand à Cassel], 1684. 1684, 1684, , 3 parties en 1 volume in-4, frontispice sur cuivre, [14]-102-61-[8]-22 pages, 52 planches, basane granitée ancienne, dos orné à la grotesque, roulette sur les coupes, Première mise en recueil des importants travaux de mathématiques et d'instrumentation topographique de Benjamin Bramer, élève et beau-frère de Jost Bürgi, comprenant trois parties parues séparément, à l'origine, en en 1634, 1647 et 1648. La troisième partie décrit le "Geometrische Triangular Instrument" de Bürgi, instrument conçu dans les années 1590 et qui exploitait de manière novatrice la technique de la triangulation. L'illustration de l'ouvrage comprend le retirage du beau portrait-frontispice allégorique de Bürgi, entouré des instruments scientifiques de sa conception, ainsi que plusieurs bois dans le texte et le retirage des planches sur cuivre, repliées pour la plupart ; les 21 planches qui ornent la troisième partie, sont courtes de marges. Texte allemand, en lettres gothiques. DSB II, 419. Poggendorff I, 274. Architecte allemand, Benjamin Bramer était le beau-frère et l'élève du célèbre constructeur d'instruments scientifiques Jost Bürgi (1552-1632), pionnier dans l'élaboration d'instruments nouveaux d'arpentage, d'astronomie et de mesure du temps : il accompagna son maître à Prague en 1603 et fut nommé en 1612 architecte de la ville de Marburg par le Landgrave de Hesse Moritz. Ce recueil est particulièrement important pour sa description de l'instrument de Bürgi, ainsi conçu : "Comme [les combinaisons de règles graduées] étaient de conception assez simples, [elles] ont été exécutées avec de nombreuses variantes. Pour faire pressentir leur filiation, rappelons que Copernic utilisait déjà un assemblage de trois règles graduées, deux d'entre elles étant articulées aux extrémités de la troisième, placée verticalement ; il était désigné sous le nom de triquetrum ou instrument des trois règles. On en retrouve un semblable dans Oronce Finé [...]. Le même principe a été repris vers la fin du XVIe siècle, et probablement de façon indépendante, par Danfrie et par Jost Bürgi. Il existe très peu de différence entre le trigomètre de Danfrie et l'instrument triangulaire de Bürgi. Le premier est muni de rapporteurs à chacune de ses articulations tandis que le second n'en est pas pourvu ; l'instrument de Burgi porte une boussole sur l'une de ses branches. Sur les deux instruments, l'une des règles latérales se déplace par une coulisse sur la règle de base : les trois règles sont divisées en partie égales et les opérations de mesure sont identiques. Trigomètre et instrument triangulaire se montent sur un trépied à rotule, ce qui permet le relevé d'angles verticaux et horizontaux" (Daumas, les instruments scientifiques aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles, pages 31-32). Reliure habilement restaurée. Impression sur papier allemand ; ce dernier présente les altérations propres à sa qualité d'origine, soit d'importantes brunissures. Petites taches d'encre anciennes sur une page. Planches de la troisième partie courtes de marge

Reissue 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.With a small tear, the first few pages heavily browned and foxed, one small tear and some occasional slight damp stains and foxing, but with the plates in very good condition. Binding re-backed and slightly rubbed near the edges. Good copy.

Provenance: Thomas Symonds of Pengethley with his signature, purchase price 30 s, engraved bookplate, manuscript notes and inserted index*; library of Walter Pagel. ----Wellcome V, p.350 (1685 title); Krivatsy 12403 (1685 title); Garison-M. 1379; Norman 2153 ; LeFanu, Notable Medical Books in the Lilly Library p.95 ; En français dans le texte 120. FIRST EDITION. An 'editio novissima' was printed by Certe in 1716 . The best description and illustrations of the nervous system made in the 17th century. Based on 500 dissections, all the illustrations are life size. "It was illustrated with thirty particularly fine engravings by Jean Beaudeau, most of them on foldout pages larger than the pages of the book. It also contained a splendid portrait of the author by Boulanger. Vieussens was an untiring dissector, and his work revealed the structure and arrangement of the nervous system better than any predecessor in addition to recording new and correct observations. For example, he showed that the spinal cord was an independent structure, not merely an appendage of the brain, and he first defined the contrum ovale." (LeFanu). "Vieussens, professor at Montpellier, was the first to describe the centrum ovale correctly. The publication of the above work threw new light on the subject of the configuration and structure of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves." (Garrison-Morton). "The two largest plates (Tabs XXVIII and XXIX) are each made up of 6 sheets pasted together. In order to show both the left and right sides of the body, the left hand side of the plate is made up from the direct impressions of three engravings, the right hand side from counter-proofs of the same plates. The majority of the plates are signed 'Beaudeau sculpsit Monsp.' The engraver was thus presumably working directly in Montpellier under Vieussens' direction. The portrait and 'JC' monogram device on the title are probably both by Mathieu Boulanger, who signed the portrait. Bénézit lists an engraver of this name active in Paris in the 17th century but gives no other details. In some copies the date on the title-page is 1685; both titles have the words 'editio nova', in this case meaning a new and original publication, rather than a new edition. When Jean Certe produced another edition in 1716, the year after Vieussen's death, he called it 'editio novissima'. *The former owner of this copy, Thomas Symonds of Pengethley Manor, Herefordshire paid 30s for it, but then noted that it was listed in Thomas Osborne's Catalogue, 1752, at 9s. He has written a note on the book, comparing it with other works on neurology, on the pastedown (22 lines) and his 8-page MS index is tipped in. The errata are corrected, as well as pencil annotations in the margins which may also be in Symonds' hand." (R. Gaskell, Books from the Library of Walter Pagel, Pt. II, 182). Very Good....

        The Observator in Dialogue.

      London: Printed by J. Bennet for William Abington, 1684-87. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. Three volumes bound as two. Folio, unpaginated. Volume I, pp.[16]; followed by 470 sheets (including two extra sheets from larger issues), with nos. 471-73 bound into volume II. Volume II, pp.[12]; [6]; followed by sheets numbered 4 to 215. Volume III, pp.40; [4]; followed by 246 sheets. This adds up to all 931 sheets published. All three volumes have an arbitrarily arranged index preceding the main text, while volumes I and III also contain a preface, and volume III contains a potted history of the period. With a frontispiece copper engraving of the author by R. White, after a portrait by Godfrey Kneller. Also with an extract from Macaulay's 'History of England' neatly copied in black ink to front free endpaper of volume I. Recently re-backed, using original boards and title labels. In full brown calf with raised bands, gilt titles to original red labels on spines, and blind decoration to boards.Blind stamps of the American Congregational Association to title page of each volume. Bookplate of Silas Ketchum Hopkinton, as well as another bookplate bearing a coronet and the letter C, to front pastedown of each volume. Light browning throughout, most leaves brittle. One large tear to sheet 209 in volume I, gently repaired. One small worm hole towards the top of the sheets of volume I, from sheet 295 to end. Text unaffected. One large tear to sheet 4 of volume II, vertical near the binding. On sheet 78 of volume II the phrase 'Monarchy is anarchy ' has been corrected by hand to read 'Liberty is anarchy'. Original boards heavily worn; pleasingly restored with a new spine to a usable condition. Good overall.Addressed to 'the IGNORANT, the SEDITIOUS, or the SCHISMATICAL Reader...', the Observator was an irregular, broadly bi-weekly, pamphlet printed on both sides of a single sheet of paper in two columns. L'Estrange's forceful propaganda takes the form of a dialogue between a Tory and a Whig (Observator and Trimmer), the former lambasting the latter's ill-conceived opinions, delivered with a strongly anti-Catholic sentiment, but equally critical of Titus Oats' Popish Plot - seemingly everyone except the King himself presenting themselves as a potential target. Though he was an uncompromising Royalist throughout the Civil War, being imprisoned for espionage in 1644, L'Estrange was also an ardent Protestant, eventually receiving a pardon and returning to England, where he was immediately useful in censoring John Milton. Following the Restoration L'Estrange became a sort of Inquisitor-in-Chief, overseeing the output of the nation's presses with terrifying efficiency and severity throughout the 1660s and '70s. Having produced Observator from the political wilderness during the 1680s, L'Estrange's career was ended permanently by the Glorious Revolution of 1688, and he retired to more scholarly pursuits for the remainder of his long life.

      Lisbon, En la Emprenta de Miguel Manescal, Librero de la Serenissima Casa de Bargança [sic], y de S. Ilustrissima, 1684. - 4°, disbound, text block edges sprinkled red. Woodcut on title page repeated on p. 31 of a bowl with flowers, fruits and vegetables. Large, elegant woodcut initial on p. 3. Extensive side notes, consisting of Latin versions of quotations in the text. In good to very good condition. 31 pp. *** One of several editions that appeared in 1683 (?)-1684; in addition to this one, we know of an undated edition without imprint (25 pp.) as well as Madrid, 1684 and Valencia, 1684 editions. The Bishop of Malaga exhorts his flock to celebrate the victory of Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I over the Turks on September 12, 1683, at the Battle of Vienna. Vienna had been besieged by the Ottoman Empire for more than 2 months. This victory, won by the Empire in league with Poland, is often seen as the turning point after which the Turks ceased to be a menace to the Christian world. Fray Alonso gives some details on the battle, and discusses the alliances that made the victory possible.Fray Alonso Enríquez de Guzmán y de Orozco (Málaga, 1631-Málaga, 1692) was officially the son of a Spanish nobleman, but was in fact the son of Philip IV, who had been having an affair with Alonso's mother, one of the queen's women in waiting. In 1646, when Philip's heir Baltasar Carlos died, Philip attempted to legitimize Alonso. Alonso refused and took orders as a Dominican in 1648, adopting the name Fray Alonso de Santo Thomás. Respected as a theologian, philosopher, and orator, he was named bishop of Osma in 1663, then of Plasencia, and in 1664, of Málaga. He is remembered for helping the city of Orán when it suffered an attack of the plague and for his help in Málaga after the earthquake of 1680. As a patron of the arts, he befriended the sculptor Pedro de Mena and the painter, architect, and sculptor Alonso Cano. *** Arouca S265. Sousa Viterbo, Litteratura hespanhola em Portugal p. 231.
