DURANTE, CASTORE
Venetia: Presso Gian Giacomo Hertz, 1684. 335 x 230 mm. (13 1/4 x 9 1/4"). 6 p.l., 480 pp, [14] leaves. Original parchment over boards, inked title on spine. In a custom-made gilt-titled folding cloth box. Large and attractive woodcut device on title, decorative headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, and NEARLY 1,000 WOODCUTS OF PLANTS in text. Title printed in red and black. Spine and joints wormed and slightly torn above top and below bottom cord, boards a little splayed, a few other small tears and slight soil, but a sound and not unsatisfying contemporary binding. Minor worming in upper margin of first few gatherings, one signature somewhat browned, a little browning elsewhere, two leaves torn in lower blank margin, but generally excellent internally, with text usually clean and fresh. Published in 1585 at the direction of Pope Sixtus V and authored by his personal physician, this popular Italian herbal describes the properties and uses of medicinal herbs from Europe, the West Indies, and Asia, and it provides us with very detailed and often whimsical woodcut illustrations of salubrious plants. The present copy is from one of only a few early editions and is uncommon, as well as being unusually well preserved. In addition to being a botanist and a doctor, Castore Durante (ca. 1529-90) was a poet, and he wrote the Latin verses that appear as part of many descriptions. In the entry for the arbor tristis, for example, Durante compares the "melancholy tree" to a nymph, and the fanciful woodcut depicts a tree whose trunk is the body of a woman and whose limbs--with carefu … [Click Below for Full Description]

DURANTE, CASTORE
Venetia: Presso Gian Giacomo Hertz, 1684. Published in 1585 at the direction of Pope Sixtus V and authored by his personal physician, this popular Italian herbal describes the properties and uses of medicinal herbs from Europe, the West Indies, and Asia and provides us with very detailed and often whimsical woodcut illustrations of salubrious plants. The present copy is from one of only a few early editions and is uncommon (OCLC locates eight copies, two of these in North America). In addition to being a botanist and a doctor, Castore Durante (ca. 1529-90) was a poet, and he wrote the Latin verses that appear as part of many descriptions. In the entry for the arbor tristis, for example, Durante compares the "melancholy tree" to a nymph, and the fanciful woodcut depicts a tree whose trunk is the body of a woman and whose limbs--with carefully detailed, oversized leaves--are her arms stretching up to the moon and stars above. Many of the woodcuts include a tiny human or animal, either tending or eating the plant, and a mere sprig of a fruit bush is shown as a full-grown tree in the midst of a landscape. These flights of imagination are the work of Leonardo Parasole, an Italian engraver and woodcutter, who took the name of his better-known wife, engraver and designer Isabella Parasole (sometimes mistakenly credited for the work here). Durante, whose position as the doctor of the pope no doubt contributed to his authority and to the market for his works, wrote other family medical guides on hygiene and nutrition.. 335 x 230 mm. (13 1/4 x 9 1/4"). 6 p.l., 480 pp, [14] leaves. Or … [Click Below for Full Description]

Calf 14.5 cm (Details: On both boards a gilt scene: within an oval laurel wreath sits Athena; she holds a small wreath of laurels over an owl, symbol of wisdom; the text 'MERENTI' hovers above the wreath. Athena leans with her left hand on her shield. Woodcut printer's mark on the title, depicting a resting Athena, with the text 'La Minerva'. Edges dyed red) (Condition: Binding scuffed at the extremes. Front joint splitting at the foot, lower joint partly abraded and splitting. Back damaged, head & tail of the spine chafed. Library label at foot of the spine) (Note: 'The most significant influence on the history of rhetoric in the 17th century was that exercised by the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits'. (Th. Conley, 'Rhetoric in the European Tradition', Chicago, London, 1990, p. 152) The Society's mission was to teach the young and to convert the protestants, and it 'quickly became the vanguard of the Counterreformation as well as the leading educational force in Europe'. (Idem, ibidem) Ca. 1625 there were 372 Jesuit colleges, where 13000 students were taught, more than almost all such institutions in the rest of Europe. All those students were to be trained in eloquence, for Rhetoric, which was primarily based on Cicero and Quintilian, was a central element in the curriculum of those schools. 'The rapid growth in the number of students created a heavy demand for both elementary texts and handbooks for teachers that would supply (.) a uniform perspective'.

Rotterdam, By Johannes Borstius, Boekverkooper op den hoek van de groote Markt, 1684. 8vo. 2 parts in 1 volume: 18,665,(5),(2 blank); 25,(3 blank) p. Frontispiece. Vellum 16.5 cm Rare first edition of this translation (Ref: Vanderhaegen I, p.41) (Details: Frontispiece engraved by P. Peuteman, it depits Erasmus sitting amidst his conversation partners; in the foreground a satyr bullying Pope Julius II and kicking another cleric; a naked woman (naked truth?) tramples under her feet some scrolls, while removing the mask from a man's face; under this theologian the name Scotus, the scrolls are entitled Bullen. These last 2 figures refer to Erasmus' sneers at the late medieval theologian Duns Scotus, who was the principal butt of his anti-scholastic blows. Scotus' doctinal authority is symbolised by the papal bulls) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned and slightly soiled. Frontispiece cut short at the upper margin. Some small and old ink spots. Front flyleaf loosening) (Note: 'The Colloquia, like the Adagia, were written over a period of years and constantly enlarged as edition succeeded edition. From their earliest form of short models of Latin conversation and formulae of etiquette (composed at Paris in 1497 for the use of some pupils and first printed in 1518) they grew into 'a rich and motley collection of dialogues, each a master piece of literary form, well-knit, spontaneous, convincing, unsurpassed in lightness, vivacity and fluent Latin, each one a finished one-act play' (Huizinga).

Brady, Robert
London: printed by Thomas Newcomb for Samuel Lowndes, 1684. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this extremely important compilation of legal and historical writings relating to English legal and political history from Anglo-Saxon times down to the Civil War. 12, 412, 60, 68, 15 pp. LEAVES Nn3 AND Qq4 ARE BOTH PRESENT IN TWO STATES (CANCELLANDUM AND CANCELLANS). This bibliographical quirk is entirely unrecorded: no source mentions any cancels in this volume. Each of the three tracts has a separate title-page, but the pagination is continuous. Printed mainly in Roman types, but with many words and phrases printed in black letter (Gothic) types. The appendix is taken entirely from the Domesday book, and is thus in Latin. The extensive glossary (68 pp) represents an important advance in English legal lexicography. Many terms in this glossary are given in Anglo-Saxon and Middle English. Folio. Beautifully bound in 19th-century half morocco and marbled boards. Binding somewhat worn at extremities, but still very solid and attractive. Internally FINE AND BRIGHT. A rare and important book, perhaps unique in this state.

1684. Small 8vo. 2 vols. in one. (8), 252 pp. (14), 9-240, (4) pp. Contemp. French brown morocco with gilt spine (spine-ends repaired). A mixed copy of the 1784 first and the 1788 edition. A Jesuit perspective on the Muslim faith, including many observations on Islamic customs and culture; "contenant les choses les plus curieuses qui regardent Mahomet & l'établissement de sa secte, qui n'ont pas encore été imprimées. Avec des conferences sur la religion chrétienne, & sur l'Alcoran" (subtitle). Indeed, the Tours-born Jesuit Michel Nau (1631-83) had first-hand knowledge of the Middle East: he had undertaken a long voyage to the Holy Land during which he visited Galilee in 1665 and the remainder of Palestine in 1674. He published an account of his journey, "Voyage nouveau de la Terre-Sainte". - From the library of the Abbé de la Paluelle with his ownership to title page and his etched armorial bookplate to pastedown.

ORBIGNY, Alcide d'.
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 tables (often lacking), of a standard work on stratigraphy and palaeontology 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 palaeontology 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 palaeontology at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris in 1853. The work contains numerous wood-engraved 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.

SWAMMERDAM, Jan.
BMC NH, p. 2055; Hagen II, p. 209; Horn & Schenkling 21795; Nissen, ZBI 4053; STCN (6 copies); for the author: DSB XIII, pp. 168-175. 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.
