        The Anatomy of Humane Bodies Epitomized Wherein All the Parts of Man's Body, with Their Actions and Uses, Are Succinctly Described, According to the Newest Doctrine of the Most Accurate and Learned Modern Anatomists. The Second edition.

      Angel & Crown, St Paul's Churchyard: J. Heptinstall, for Thomas Flesher, 1684. Second edition, small thick octavo, pp (14), 590, with the imprimatur leaf, some age-toning and thumbing throughout, a little light staining in places, 16 anatomical plates (of which one is small and folding, repaired at one of the folds), a small neat name and address dated 1954 on the front endpaper, contemporary mottled calf, a little worn, neatly and sympathetically rebacked by Temple Bookbinders. Still an attractive copy of a scarce work. [Thomas Gibson, MD, 1647-1722, was born at Bampton in Westmorland. He graduated doctor of medicine at Leyden, 20th August, 1675, and was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 26th June, 1676. He is stated in the Annals of the College of Physicians to have been created doctor of medicine by the archbishop of Canterbury, 16th May, 1663 (age 16), and to have been admitted ad eundem, at Cambridge, 5th October, 1671. He was admitted an Honorary Fellow of the College of Physicians 30th September, 1680. Because he was a presbyterian he was removed from the list of Fellows when the college received a new charter under James II in 1687'. He was reinstated after the Glorious Revolution in 1688 when William and Mary came to the throne. He was physician-general to the army 1718-19. His second wife, Elizabeth, was the sixth daughter of Richard Cromwell, briefly Lord Protector (1658-1659)), the son of Oliver Cromwell. His book Anatomy of Humane Bodies epitomized went through eight editions, between 1682-1737, the first being published anonymously. It was a best seller. It was based on a revision of Alexander Read's Manuall of Anatomy (1634), which Gibson acknowledges, and in English, instead of Latin which had been obligatory before censorship and permission from the Stationers Company disappeared during the civil war and interregnum. The beautiful illustrations are taken from Vesalius's anatomical drawings.]. Second edition. Full-Leather. Good.

      Artist: Chatelain Henri Abraham ( - 1743) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1720 1684 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 38 x 87; - description: Map shows the Island Java with insert map of the harbour of Batavia.; -vita of the artist: Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684 - 1743) was a Huguenot pastor of Parisian origins. He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

        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

Lubieniczki’s Historia is an account of the Polish Reformation from its origins in the 16th century up till the expulsion of the Brethren from Rakow (1638). In a review of the 1995 English translation Paul W. Knoll says that this work is “a comprehensive treatment of an extraordinarily complex movement.

        ACTS AND MONUMENTS OF MATTERS MOST SPECIAL AND MEMORABLE HAPPENING IN THE CHURCH WITH AN UNIVERSAL HISTORY OF THE SAME

      1684 FOXE'S BOOK OF MARTYRS,THE *Ninth Edition* CONSIDERED THE BEST EDITION DUE TO ITS SIZE AND COMPLETENESS OF CONTENT In 3 LARGE FOLIO VOLUMES. Measuring 15 ½" x 10" x 8 ½" thick combined.Divided Into 12 BOOKS Plus THE CONTINUATION And THE TABLE Covering CHRISTIAN MARTYRDOMS From 1 A.D. To 1621 A.D. Including Over 2,700 PAGES And DOZENS OF GRUESOME ENGRAVINGS ! [Wing F2036; ESTC R3576].HISTORYJohn Foxe's Book of Martyrs has been called "The most important Christian work ever printed outside of the Bible itself." It documents the martyrdom of all of history's recorded saints from the original Apostles of the First Century, to the early 17th Century. Perhaps most famous for its many graphic woodcut illustrations showing the gruesome methods of execution and torture used against those who gave their lives for the truth of God's Word. In three tall leather volumes, over 2,700 pages, this Edition (9th) is considered to be the best because it includes the totality of Foxe's work!Also known by its formal name, "Foxe's Acts and Monuments of the Christian Church." The books you may have seen in Christian bookstores that claim to be "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" actually only contain FOUR PERCENT of the text that this included here in this authentic 9th edition. They touch on only the more "famous saints"... and typically offer few or none of the magnificent illustrations. The other 96% of the text, and all of the famous illustrations, are "edited out".John Foxe is the most respected of all Christian historians. Foxe also contributed to the production of the original Geneva Bible along with John Knox, under the protection of John Calvin in Geneva Switzerland... fleeing the persecution of Catholic Queen "Bloody" Mary. Foxe's level of scholarship and accuracy is without equal, and his woodcut illustrations make no use of censorship in their detail. Foxe's Book of Martyrs is the ultimate documentary of Christian Martyrdom.RECENTLY AND BEAUTIFULLY REBACKED IN SYMPATHETIC BROWN LEATHER.

        Statua humana circulatoria (22. Nov. 1683: pp.338-351, 2 Taf.).

      Journal des Scavans, 11. - A Amsterdam, Chez Pierre le Grand, M.DC.LXXXIV (1684), 404, 18 pp., 12 z.T. gefalt. Kupferstichtafeln, Halbledereinband d.Zt. First Edition!The first material model of the blood circulation was produced by the German Salomon Reisel (1625-1701)."Let's examine Reisel's Statua more closely, probably the most spectacular item in the list. As it appears from his 1693 essay in Miscellanea curiosa, unlike Jacques Vaucanson with his duck, Reisel wished to build the Statua but he did not actually do so rather, he discussed the most appropriate materials for its construction, such as the skeleton of wood or iron, the blood vessels near the heart of elder- tree, and, as Luigi Belloni has emphasized, the pineal gland of conical glass or crystal held by a silk thread inside a spherical glass globe. Reisel's remarkable plates show the kidneys, bladder, sphincter, penis, and larynx. Reisel discussed digestion and the filtration of urine but his primary aim was to convince the skeptics of the truth of the circulation of the blood, which he illustrated with the detail of blood squirting out of openings in the foot and hand. It would be reductive to take Malpighi's examples as mere marvels or even instantiations of anatomical structures. It has not been sufficiently appreciated that Malpighi framed his examples as part of a general reflection on pathology as well as physiology, thus extending the notion of nature's uniformity from machines to organs and from healthy to diseased states. Malpighi's anatomical publications and medical consultations display his chymical and mechanical thinking in understanding many of the operations described by Reisel's machine and of the related diseases. In De polypo cordis, for example, he reported several experiments based on aspersing different chemical on blood poured in a vessel in order to ascertain their properties. Malpighi was especially concerned with the change of color and fluidity of blood, arguing that those chemicals making the blood more fluid would be potentially effective against affections decreasing the blood's fluidity, such as the plague. His experiments pointed to a therapy, though one none of use would be eager to test. Similarly, in a medical consultation of 29 March 1687 for a case of gout, he sought to explain what happens inside the body, the cause of the disease being an excess of acids in the chyle. Then he also stated: "All this can be seen in proportion also mechanically mixing spirit of vitriol, or another acid that is especially austere, with different fluids." In this passage Malpighi used the term "mechanically" rather broadly, in conjunction with a chymical operation. It is especially significant from our perspective that he reproduced in vitro processes occurring inside the body in order to investigate disease and to devise suitable therapies. This consultation echoes Malpighi's description of Reisel's Statua, thus providing strong evidence that he envisaged it as a material device and interpreted it - unlike Reisel himself - from a pathological and medical standpoint as well." Machines and the Body between Anatomy and Pathology Domenico Bertoloni MeliReisei, Salomon. "Mediziner. * 24. 10.1625 Warmbrunn (Schlesien), t 21.11.1701 Stuttgart studierte 1645-52 in Straßburg und Basel, praktizierte 1652-55 in Ottweiler bei Saarbrücken und war 1655-60 Hofarzt in Saarbrücken unter Graf Johann Ludwig von Nassau-Saarbrücken sowie Erzieher des ältesten Grafensohnes. 1657 wurde er in Basel promoviert. 1660-68 war er Leibarzt in Buchsweiler unter Graf Friedrich Kasimir von Hanau, dann Hof- und Leibarzt in Hanau. 1674-79 Stadtphysikus in Worms. 1679-1701 Leibarzt und Rat der württembergischen Herzoge in Stuttgart. 1674 wurde er in die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina aufgenommen.

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.

        Statua humana circulatoria (22. Nov. 1683: pp.338-351, 2 Taf.).

      - Journal des Scavans, 11. - A Amsterdam, Chez Pierre le Grand, M.DC.LXXXIV (1684), 404, 18 pp., 12 z.T. gefalt. Kupferstichtafeln, Halbledereinband d.Zt. First Edition! The first material model of the blood circulation was produced by the German Salomon Reisel (1625-1701). "Let's examine Reisel's Statua more closely, probably the most spectacular item in the list. As it appears from his 1693 essay in Miscellanea curiosa, unlike Jacques Vaucanson with his duck, Reisel wished to build the Statua but he did not actually do so; rather, he discussed the most appropriate materials for its construction, such as the skeleton of wood or iron, the blood vessels near the heart of elder- tree, and, as Luigi Belloni has emphasized, the pineal gland of conical glass or crystal held by a silk thread inside a spherical glass globe. Reisel's remarkable plates show the kidneys, bladder, sphincter, penis, and larynx. Reisel discussed digestion and the filtration of urine but his primary aim was to convince the skeptics of the truth of the circulation of the blood, which he illustrated with the detail of blood squirting out of openings in the foot and hand. It would be reductive to take Malpighi's examples as mere marvels or even instantiations of anatomical structures. It has not been sufficiently appreciated that Malpighi framed his examples as part of a general reflection on pathology as well as physiology, thus extending the notion of nature's uniformity from machines to organs and from healthy to diseased states. Malpighi's anatomical publications and medical consultations display his chymical and mechanical thinking in understanding many of the operations described by Reisel's machine and of the related diseases. In De polypo cordis, for example, he reported several experiments based on aspersing different chemical on blood poured in a vessel in order to ascertain their properties. Malpighi was especially concerned with the change of color and fluidity of blood, arguing that those chemicals making the blood more fluid would be potentially effective against affections decreasing the blood's fluidity, such as the plague. His experiments pointed to a therapy, though one none of use would be eager to test. Similarly, in a medical consultation of 29 March 1687 for a case of gout, he sought to explain what happens inside the body, the cause of the disease being an excess of acids in the chyle. Then he also stated: "All this can be seen in proportion also mechanically mixing spirit of vitriol, or another acid that is especially austere, with different fluids." In this passage Malpighi used the term "mechanically" rather broadly, in conjunction with a chymical operation. It is especially significant from our perspective that he reproduced in vitro processes occurring inside the body in order to investigate disease and to devise suitable therapies. This consultation echoes Malpighi's description of Reisel's Statua, thus providing strong evidence that he envisaged it as a material device and interpreted it - unlike Reisel himself - from a pathological and medical standpoint as well."

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.

        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.

        Le Misantrope. Nouvelle edition revue & augmentée de plusieurs discours importans. Den Haag, Jean Neaulme, 1726. [2 delen].

Leven en Werk (Utrecht 1992) Buijnsters (Van Effen) 1.2; Buijnsters (Spect) 113"."Le Misantrope' is niet alleen het eerste spectatoriale tijdschrift van Justus van Effen (Utrecht 1684 - Den Bosch 1735), maar ook de eerste 'spectator' op het Europese vasteland. 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)."

        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).

        Spicilegium de Cessione Jurium et Actionum; in quo post desudatam messem Clarissimi Celeberrimi Authoris D. Alphonsi de Olea, dilapsae & manipulares Cessibilium Spicae, tanquam in area excussae coacervantur. Opus in scholis et subselliis utile et pernecessarium. Editio altera gallica, emendatior

      sumpt. Petri Borde, Joannis & Petri Arnaud, Lugduni 1684 - In-folio (350x220mm), pp. (12), 164, (15) di indice bicolonne, legatura coeva p. pergamena con titolo calligrafato in antico su dorso a 4 nervi. Titolo inciso al taglio di piede. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero con impresa tipografica con la Fortuna, Ercole e Minerva entro cornice con motto su nastro Semina fortunae geminat cum tempore virtus. Testo bicolonne. Ex-libris manoscritto antico (Lud.[ovi]ci Perrachini). Altro ex-libris novecentesco. Fioriture e bruniture sparse. Piccoli restauri al dorso. Buon esemplare. 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. Lo attestano uno Spicilegium de cessione iurium et actionum (Neapoli 1682, 1687), ed il successivo Spicilegium geminum de cessione iurium et actionum (ibid. 1695). Quantitativamente considerevole il suo contributo in materia di successioni (Pier Luigi Rovito in D.B.I., XXXVIII, 1990). Latino

        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].
